18 – 21 Sept 2020 | Into the Light - Offered by Charisse Louw

Updated: Sep 29, 2020

Have we ever needed to be together more than now? Have we ever needed to kindle our

light with more fervour. Come warm yourself and one another through mindful living.

Temenos Retreat in McGregor has offered me sanctuary thrice in the past.

First when I was reeling as a new mother of two -- I found the peace and quiet in these

magical gardens and meditation spaces that my exhausted body and soul craved.

Then in the midst of the hardest year in which I lost my best friend, my brother, and

students very suddenly and violently.

And finally, I took myself there on self-retreat at the end of an era, the closing of the school I

gave my life to and a time for processing the crippling grief that had been held at bay by

busyness. A time to birth a whole new season of my life.

Now I invite you to come breathe, meditate, and reconnect with your own glowing heart in

this paradise garden.

After a long dark season it’s time to bask in the light that we are.

Beautiful sanctuary in private cottages for three nights, a labyrinth, blissful meditation

spaces & delicious food catered by Tebaldi. Truly a gift.

No experience necessary to enjoy gentle healing energy practices that will help restore your


Only 7 spaces available.
