The invitation of a private Re-treat
The Importance of Rest and Recuperation for Women.
As a mental & emotional wellness practitioner and a woman, I witness the daily struggles of exhaustion and depletion that afflict us. Our roles as caregivers to our aging parents, devoted mothers, hardworking professionals, and active members of our communities drain us of our vitality, leaving us susceptible to the looming shadow of burnout.
Our innate nurturing nature drives us to give all that we have, but we have forgotten to care for ourselves in the process.
However, we cannot pour from an empty cup. To be able to give abundantly, we must first fill our own vessel to the brim.
A retreat offers a sanctuary for the restoration of our body, mind, heart, and soul, providing us with the necessary time and space to recharge, be heard, seen, and cared for, and to find stillness amidst the chaos of everyday life.
Prioritizing self-care by carving out time to retreat to a peaceful environment away from the demands of the daily hustle and bustle may just be the most precious gift we can give to ourselves and our loved ones. Let us embrace the enchanting magic of restoration and return to our roles as caregivers with renewed vigor and vitality
Personal Curated Re-treat
We embark on your solo sojourn with a Discovery call to assess your unique requirements, and identify what support will serve your soul's yearning best.
I will then curate a personalized retreat program, which is as unique as you are.
Our Solo Sojourn program weaves a tapestry of wellness, blending intention setting, therapeutic wellness coaching, heart work, guided meditation, and an energy healing session into a life-affirming experience.
We also provide daily nutritional meals, carefully crafted to nourish and replenish your body and soul.
Our program also includes time for journaling, reflection, and solitude to encourage self-care and space for reflection during your transformative journey.
What Retreaters Say : Lacey J. - London
“Eleftheria and Barry (together with their curios pet dog Scamp and fluffy cat Syrah) were incredible hosts. You instantly feel very welcome and ‘at home’. Being in a safe and compassionate environment where you can completely relax with trusted confidants is an important component of a retreat, to authentically open yourself up fully to the empowering journey that awaits.
I didn’t have a big agenda when I arrived – I knew I wanted to have a change of scene in nature and the opportunity to simply relax, be present, and reflect, as I had been through a busy and stressful time – I got much more than that. Discovering the hidden beauty of Slovenia is something I hadn’t quite anticipated. In this beautiful quaint village, I found time to heal, restore and gain clarity on my future vision. ....”

Dobrodošli na Sladki Gori
Set in the heart of the Kozjansko Biosphere is a little village called Sladka Gora (Sweet Mountain).
For centuries, people have traveled from all over Europe to visit Slovenia’s healing waters. The country abounds with natural healing springs and spa’s.
We feel deeply privileged to be able to live in one of these hidden gems, which still welcomes pilgrims today. Amidst the wine-growing hills, stands the pearl, the pilgrim's church dedicated to St. Mary - maker of miracles. Constructed in 1754 with beautiful Baroque fresco's, sculptures and design, it is a sight to behold.

It it truly peaceful, and there is certainly something visceral in the air which welcomes you into exploring the transformative possibilities of Slovenia. Find healing in this land of natural beauty and ancient energy.
