Bliss & Stars Retreat

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE THE TRIP​

We’re looking forward to our time together at Bliss & Stars. Taking time to reconnect with your body, heart and nature can be one of the most rewarding and enriching experiences for your health and well-being. It can simply jump-start a new way of being in the world.

We encourage you to attempt to arrive early to unwind and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and settle gently into the space.

ESSENTIAL PREPARATION

Following these guidelines will greatly improve your experience.

We encourage you to refrain from caffeine, cigarettes, and alcohol at least 3 days prior to your arrival. Doing so will greatly reduce potential symptoms of detox (e.g. headaches etc)

We don’t serve alcohol and caffeine. Our experiences are designed to relax the nervous system and create conditions for wonderful and restful sleep. Stimulants like caffeine promote central nervous system stimulation, making you feel alert and can disrupt sleep patterns.

We’ll support you throughout these days to ensure your comfort.
