Kamala Garden Route Family Retreat to Build Relationships


Kamala Life Transforming EQ and Wellness Family Retreat

The KAMALA Garden Route Family Retreat is an exclusive 7-day integrative wellness retreat, that takes place at the Botlierskop Private Game Reserve, on South Africa’s scenic Garden Route, and offers a South African Experience in pristine nature, for international groups or families. An extended Garden Route Adventure and Adrenaline Tour can be added to enhance group or family coherence. This 5-star Nature Experience, in combination with a pivotal integrative Equine-Assisted-Emotional-Intelligence and Awareness Program, will focus on restoring relationships with the goal to allow guests to unwind and let go of old patterns and stories, as well as finding a new way of interaction free from co-dependency, with tools and skills to live and function in a more balanced & efficient way.

Kamala is Sanskrit for lotus, which symbolizes the lotus flower with its roots based in mud, but it grows to become the most beautiful flower, undeterred by its dirty environment and re-blooms every time without residue on its petals. In the same way, the wise focus on the beauty in all that is and stays undeterred by the contrasting opinions of the world, and in the process become deliberate co-creators of a beautiful life.

Join us for a serene, supportive, yet intense reflective African retreat experience, to find more clarity and emotional freedom, and use it as a springboard to re-align with your highest self and those around you. Learn how to create your ultimate reality, by releasing old patterns and allowing new momentum to build, with the universal laws to support you every step of the way.

Enjoy game drives and nature, an extensive physical and emotional detoxification program, reflective fire and writing ceremonies, practical equine assisted experiences, tension release exercises, guided meditations and mindfulness sessions, as well as life-changing presentations with skills and tools to live your life on purpose.

About 1 Month after the retreat

I just want to say that I have gone through a lot of therapy in my life, but today I can honestly testify that the break-through I experienced with Marie, finally freed me from all the negative experiences with my mom. Now I can only think of all the beautiful moments we shared.

About 6 Months after the retreat

I attended the Equistria Retreat with my psychiatrist and psychologist’s approval. I had struggle with bi-polar and alcoholism for years and was open to try something different. I experienced a lack of acknowledgement at my work and were struggling with past traumas. A few months later I relapsed due to a broken relationship and contacted Marie for advice. It was easy to discuss options and decide what will support me best, as I experienced the different approaches and tools during the retreat. I was desperate to stay sober for 3 days, to be able to take the anti-booze pills and did 2 journey processes with her.

Here is my feedback at different stages afterwards:

Hi Marie, I am sober for 14 days now without any pills! Taking it day by day. My doctor is a little concerned about my great mood!

Hello Marie, I was at the doctor today, she took me off my antidepression pills, but I still use a mood stabilizer. My classes are starting again, and I am excited to start the year.

Hi Marie, the University identified 2 of my articles which they want to publicize in the media! I have so many blessings currently! So grateful!

Hi Marie, I have received great news! I was asked to be a guest speaker in Singapore at the world pediatric conference!

Hi Marie, I would like you to meet my new partner!

Your method works! I was just looking for something on Pinterest and when I saw the keywords, I compiled at your Retreat, I realized suddenly everything has happened that I have put into my life movie. My health is better, I have a closet full of new clothes. With regards to my education career, I am being send to Singapore and Canada for my research and I am busy redoing my kitchen. Best of all I have found the love of my life. Everything we did at your workshop happened/manifested! Thank you so much!
