Byron retreat is ready to welcome you soon this winter, from August 11th to 14th. 👏 In this retreat, I'm infusing the essence of ASOBI, a beautiful Japanese concept that translates to "play". But ASOBI is more than just play; it's about creating space in your life, moments of pure relaxation.

About the event

Byron retreat is ready to welcome you soon this winter, from August 11th to 14th. 

In this retreat, I'm infusing the essence of ASOBI, a beautiful Japanese concept that translates to "play". But ASOBI is more than just play; it's about creating space in your life, moments of pure relaxation.

My vision for this retreat is to cultivate a space of light-heartedness, free from judgment and filled with joy. Imagine moments of breaths to open up your body and senses, freeing movements, serene stillness among the harmonious sounds of nature. Thoughtfully crafted foods to nourish and fire to warm us. It's a time to connect with kindred souls, nature to inspire, nurture and nourish you.

I call for friends who crave this in your life or you may just want to hang out with me! Retreat is a special way to meet yourself as you are, charge up the juice and to reset your life, going forward.
