Preparing for your retreat

A bespoke treatment plan individually tailored for a single client.

A smooth transition into your retreat


We are aware that it can feel like your retreat has begun from the moment you say yes, and we will endeavour to support you in any way we can. Our staff will also be happy to help you with necessary arrangements to create a smooth transition into your retreat.

We recommend that you pack the items that will help your stay to be as comfortable and comforting as possible. Your retreat house will be fully-appointed and we will provide all equipment for activities. We recommend that you bring plenty of clothes suitable for relaxing and for physical pursuits, as well as some walking shoes and your personal toiletries. We will recommend suitable clothing based on the season as we finalise your retreat admission.

If you will need to attend to important business matters while on retreat, please bring your laptop computer. We will schedule internet access at an agreed time so as not to interfere with your treatment program.

If you are flying in, one of our staff will pick you up from the airport and drive you to your private retreat residence. If you require assistance while traveling, we can also arrange for a staff member to meet you at your home and accompany you as you fly or drive to your retreat residence.
