Why should I go on a KendaRetreat?

This is a question I get a lot of the times and the answer is always a very simple one - "because magical things will happen for you!"

You experience a physical renewal.

There's a beautiful interplay that unfolds when you nourish yourself with whole foods, prioritise rest, engage in movement, calm your nervous system, detoxify, and embrace reflective practices. It's a journey that taps into your body's innate ability to rejuvenate and heal. By the third day of your retreat, you begin to notice a radiant glow in your skin.

You enjoy a respite from the constant hustle and bustle.

Picture a day void of emails, incessant phone notifications, commuting, or the never-ending to-do list. Envision redirecting the time typically spent managing your life towards truly living it. During retreat, you savour moments to witness a breathtaking Gozitan sunset, relish the flavours of your mediterranean meals, deeply connect with others, and contemplate the intricate beauty of a wild cat crossing your path.

You forge meaningful connections

While some may perceive retreats as solitary experiences, I've found that some of my most profound friendships have blossomed during these times. Surrounded by kindred spirits who value connection and radical honesty, the environment fosters genuine conversations and deep bonds. Here, there's no need for masks or distractions—just raw authenticity.

You realign your habits

During retreats, participants often find it easier to let go of old habits or embrace new ones. It's simpler to skip that glass of wine when it's not readily available, or to establish a morning meditation routine when there are no morning rush demands and nobody else to worry about. By nurturing and reinforcing these habits during the retreat, they become more firmly rooted, making them easier to sustain in the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives.

You commune with nature

All of our retreat venues are nestled in breathtaking natural surroundings. From the melodic chirping of birds to the vibrant hues of bougainvillea and the mesmerising expanse of starlit skies, nature envelops you, evoking a sense of wonder and profound support. Last year we ventured to Lancashire staying in a Grade ll listed stately home, surrounded by private gardens and lakes and this October we're off to the island of Gozo to stay in a farmhouse villa with private pools and once again surrounded by fields of cactus. Literally surrounded by some of the bluest mediterranean sea.

Learn new skills
Acquiring new skills that you can integrate into your daily life is essential. It ensures that the transformation initiated during the retreat continues long after it has concluded. Learning skills like the Aromatouch hand technique, working with crystals, tuning into their energies, creating personalised suncatchers, mastering the use of essential oils, and crafting bespoke blends are just a few examples of the transformative tools you can take home with you. These skills empower you to continue your journey of self-discovery and growth long after the retreat has ended.

You reignite your spirituality

In the midst of busy daily routines, it's easy to lose touch with our spiritual selves. However, the solitude, tranquility, and rituals of retreats provide the perfect environment to rekindle that connection. Whether through drumming, energy work, crystals, essential oils or meditation, there's ample time to nurture and explore your spiritual essence.

You rediscover yourself

Retreats offer a sanctuary for introspection and self-discovery. It's a chance to reconnect with your innermost self, contemplate your life's path, and reaffirm your values. With newfound clarity, you can make fresh commitments and chart a course toward personal growth and fulfillment. Many participants find themselves making significant life changes upon returning—whether it's navigating big career/life transitions, pursuing a new venture, gaining deeper clarity and focus, or ending a toxic relationship. In the stillness of the retreat, decisions are made with conviction, paving the way for transformative experiences. You are reminded that, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Wayne Dyer.

I am enough

You embrace the profound truth that you are inherently complete and worthy in every aspect. You are able to say it outloud, "I AM ENOUGH".
