BLISS & STARS WILDERNESS RETREAT
FIND YOUR WAY TO Retreat, SLOW DOWN AND RESTORE
At Bliss & Stars, we fuse nature, meditation, movement, food, and astronomy to guide you into presence and stillness. We curate experiences that inspire people to slow down, meet themselves as they are, and experience more joy and wholeness in life.
Bliss & STARS | The Valley infused with meaning and stillness
Nestled in nature with no distractions and full privacy, Bliss & Stars spans 1,350 ha in a valley at the banks of the Doring River in the breathtaking Cederberg Mountains, South Africa.
The off-the-grid space provides a wonderful setting to calm the mind, rejuvenate the body and reconnect with nature and yourself during the 4-day and 7-day long programs.
Bliss & Stars is not your usual retreat. It’s a space where guests are treated as friends. It’s a space to feel at home. It’s a space to transcend.
NOURISH YOUR BODY, MIND
ONLINE COURSES & WORKSHOPS
Immerse yourself in a dazzling landscape and star-studded night skies. Explore the natural wilderness around you. Watch the moon rise from your terrace, stargaze from your hammock, and explore galaxies with South Africa’s largest private astronomical telescope. Take a hike following the same routes of the KhoiSan bushmen, experience human history through cave paintings, or just float along the river and tune into the sounds of nature.
MIND & BODY
We honor the well-being of the body, mind, and heart. Meditation, movement, food, and nature are the ways to connect to ourselves and the universe.
We guide you to embrace the beauty of the human experience as it is. We invite you to come home to yourself and nature.
Look around you. Signs of the cosmos are everywhere, embodied in everything from vast galaxies to tiny snails. The cosmos is even deeply embedded in our DNA.
We invite you to tell your tales of the night sky and rediscover your origins.
WE LOVE OUR GUESTS
No request is too big and no detail too small. We’d love to hear from you and help you plan your perfect Bliss & Stars experience, before your journey to our beautiful oasis begins.
