Embodiment is a journey through the landscapes of the Mind, Heart, Emotions and Body. Our foundational retreat focuses on the intelligence centres of the body, how to access them and how to use them to deepen relationship with self and other.



You may be a leader, a change maker or someone who is eager to lean into your human potential. Is this you?

No matter who you are, you probably share a desire to create a more positive impact on the world and to those around you.

Are you wishing to be more effective in your actions, to get clear of what you are wanting to experience from life and to
simply live with joy and abundance?

If you are noticing patterns within yourself that no longer serve you and you want to transform your perspective and shift to a new way of being in the world, then this is the retreat for YOU.


You will experience a journey through the spectrum of adult development, including somatic learning, emotional
development, mental learning and development of your awareness. To do this, we introduce the practice of Action Inquiry (founded by Bill Torbert) which incorporates ancient wisdom from traditions around the world. Our commitment to you – should you decide to join us – is that you will leave with grounded ideas and practices to support you on the journey of psychological development for the rest of your life.


“Words cannot express or do this retreat justice. I’ve accessed parts of me I never knew were possible. I feel so alive and excited to ‘get back’ to my life to see how the effects of the retreat will reverberate
through my life. This retreat is just the start of my transformation. I’m so excited to do more.”

-Natalie Hayes

“This experience was enlightening, unexpected, but exactly what I needed at this point in my life. Jesse facilitated this worksop to an extend which blew me away. I am in awe at the level of knowledge, support, compassion, intuitive, guidance and professionalism they tapped into during the course. They held the space beautifully, I would say, beyond words. I look forward to continuing my journey with them.”
