This retreat is presented in partnership with SAND (Science and Non-Duality) and Mandali Retreat Centre.

Join us for this special retreat, in which we will utilize the beautiful environment of Mandali to enter into a multilayered exploration of somatic, relational and shamanic realms.

Using the phases of day and night, the rhythms of nature, engagement with the elements and communal explorations, we will engage in a multitude of celebrations, challenges and practices that deepen your relationship with yourself and the natural world as it arises around and through you.

During the days you will be involved in opportunities for individual assignments and explorations, group processes and somatic work. Each of the evenings and nights are dedicated to a specific theme that explores the capacities of your body, your gifts of relational expression and offers personalized assignments to support your unique themes and considerations.

You will have the option to receive personalized all night practices as well as time in nature and in-depth engagement with the 5 Elements. We will enter into ritual, art, considerations and celebrations during our time together.

This retreat is designed to immerse you into the natural world, deepen your connection to your body, introduce you to elemental and nature practices and give you the opportunity to deepen and expand your capacity. From what arises through your body, you can offer powerfully to relationship, creativity, community and yourself.


Their material is very accessible for everyone

Their material is very accessible for everyone, at any stage of their practice with the material. Their teaching style is impeccable and allow for the participants to deepen their experience in a safe space. Whether the event is a couple of hours, a day or a week long, I get so much out of it for my personal growth. I HIGHLY recommend giving ANY of their workshops a try!

Yoda meets the Elf Queen

Michaela is like my real life version of Yoda meets the Elf Queen from Lord of the Rings, meets The Oracle from the Matrix, meets any other archetypal guiding figure you can think of….Basically she is a lot of help. I think she can advise men and women equally well and I trust in her ability to assist in any situation.

Michaela & Steve are truly masterful in their craft

Michaela and Steve are truly masterful in their craft – weaving a seamless tapestry together to guide us on a deeply embodied journey of enquiry. As a workshop facilitator, I really see facilitation as a true art form within itself, so it’s quite powerful to be guided through this journey by facilitators with such laser precision, quick wit and deep wisdom and experience.
