REST & THRIVE IS FOR YOU IF YOU NEED TO:
MEET THE FOUNDERS & YOUR GUIDES
We’ve been there. Working long hours, rarely making time for ourselves, and not listening enough to our inner voice.
Mindfulness and nature were two things that allowed us to see our life from a more balanced perspective. We opened our eyes for the first time and realized that we postponed our true dreams for too long.
As soon as we created space for self-care and learned how to keep stress at healthy levels, creativity and courage flourished. We created Bliss & Stars to share our passions, our long-life learnings, and the experience of self-discovery by living with no fear.
The days are designed to give you plenty of time to slow down.
There is morning and evening meditation and breathing & relaxation techniques.
You’ll be counting shooting stars and looking deep into the night sky with South Africa’s biggest privately owned telescope.
There will also be plenty of time to relax by the pool or the river, listen to the birds sing, and watch the water flow.
Be more relaxed and refreshed than you’ve ever been
Let go off the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience the transformative power of nature and the night sky
We offer a balanced, plant-based, wholesome cuisine based in Ayurvedic medicine designed to nourish your body and delight your senses.
Our cuisine is simple, using fresh ingredients from the on-site organic garden or local farmers. Food is part of the retreat experience, including daily breakfast, light lunch, and dinners.
We do not serve stimulants like alcohol.
We cater to all dietary needs.
