Please note that our retreat programs offers you the concept of “one -on -one” exclusive, private therapy and sessions and you will not be part of a group. It is very much for the individual that would like to be on a “silent” retreat to reflect within and do some soul searching. Learn to go “within”, how to meditate and develop the “voice” within, guiding you to find your life purpose and resolve your “issues”.

We offer retreat accommodation at our Stellenbosch branch, located at The Bellevue Manor Guesthouse on the R44/Strand Rd, between Somerset West and Stellenbosch. www.bellevuestellenbosch.co.za

You will be visited and guided daily by myself. Most of our therapists and psychologists will be commencing your therapy in the comfort of your room. The only time we will transport you is when we visit the medical doctor and the Virgin Active gymnasiums closest to your accommodation. No accommodation can offer you the high standard and variety of classes and facilities such as at the Virgin Active. In the past, we have found that it’s refreshing to venture out every other day from your accommodation and not to feel “stuck” there all the time, after dealing with all the therapy and psychology sessions.

All of the above if of no good if you do not learn techniques how to DE-STRESS the mind and body and learn how to re-program the unconcious mind with new believes about self and the world around you.

As a child, you have learned habits and believes from your parents, siblings or others and it might not serve you specifically as an adult. Our actions as an adult is based on what we have been taught as a child. We need to access and see where you’re at in your life and simply re-program the unconcious mind with a new set of believes that will “serve” you. Let go of destructive, negative believes and thoughts about yourself and life in general. Most problems in adulthood stems from a believe that you are not worthy or loved enough on a much deeper level…which has been imprinted on your psyche without even realising it, and may have been “sabotaging” yourself in various forms or ways. These programmed “believes” sets the foundation of what’s currently going on in your life and what you allow to happen to you in the future and if you’d like to change your life for the better, we need to re-program these thought patterns. I will show you how, it’s very, very simple and everyone should be taught these techniques. You have to promise me that when i teach you this, you will go ahead and teach others that and this way, we’ll raise the awareness and help others together! True healing occurs when you turn your own “misery” into a blessing by serving and helping others, stemming from your own experience and thus having true compassion and empathy.

Meditations & healing visualisations

When have you ever just washed the dishes, and NOT think about everything else in this world currently going on? Have you ever washed a glass or cup or plate and REALLY REALLY looked at that glass or cup or plate and watched the soap bubble from the sponge onto the item while you clean it and just LIVE yourself into this very process at this VERY MOMENT….? It teaches us to be present in the NOW…this VERY MOMENT is the only moment that is REAL.

Research has proven that 80% of our thoughts are always about what will happen in the future and what happened in the past. The future is not secure and creates a lot of fear in people. These fearful thoughts leads to feelings of anxiety. Thoughts about the past, often is about what we did not do or do right or what happened to us, which is often negative and creates depression.

Practicing with such a simple exercise as washing the dishes CONCIOUSLY, will help you more and more to train the mind to let go of the future and the past and focus on the NOW. This technique has been reported by most of my clients that it somehow feels that they find that inner happy place much easier, the more they practice this technique of just simply reminding themselves wherever they are to be PRESENT in the very moment and not to let you mind wonder off to a surreal future or past and it’s worries. Once we’ve worked on re-programming your mind with a happier, more loving and positive programming, you will find that a wondering mind into the future and the past, focuses more on the happy experience and thoughts, creating more happy hormones.

NONE of the above will help if you are extremely STRESSED out. The more you stress, the more your immune system drops, and the more acidic your body becomes. You have to learn the mindful meditation techniques in combination with TRE tension and trauma releasing exercises on a daily basis to manage your stress levels and to release the buildup “charge” from you central nervous system/limbic brain, otherwise you will be going around like a mouse on a wheel. You have to work on removing the root cause of your discomfort or disease. We can show you how, it’s so simple and easy actually!
