BLISS & STARS PHILOSOPHY

ALL YOU NEED IS ALREADY WITHIN YOU​​

Our mission is simple: to guide people to meet themselves as they are and experience more joy + wholeness in life for the benefit of all beings.

Bliss & Stars philosophy is anchored in the belief that nothing outside of yourself is needed for you to live your best life – no special diet, no particular pose, no shiny crystal. All you need is what you already have. (Not that there’s anything wrong with quartz, quinoa or downward dogs, we enjoy those too:).

Sometimes, drastic times call for drastic measures. Maybe a radical experience is the only thing capable of breaking the monotony and autopilot mode.

Therefore, we’ve created a unique eco-retreat that offers tailored wilderness journeys where the outer space meets the inner space. We use nature, the night sky, community, and mindfulness to help people reconnect with the inner and outer wilderness.

EXPERIENCES TAILORED FOR YOU

We don’t use any fancy, advanced tech but tap into what’s widely available and accessible: the breath, body, surrounding nature and night sky.

Well, that’s not entirely true. We also happen to have South Africa’s most advanced private astronomical observatory. Our passion is about astronomy, our astronomical heritage, and our state of mind at starlight. So, we offer experiences ranging from naked-eye stargazing accompanied by mindfulness meditation and yoga Nidra to technical courses in advanced astrophotography.

Nature can cure a lot of ailments caused by modern urban life. Therefore, we strive to raise awareness about the importance of protecting dark skies, and our ecosystem because both help replace disturbed melatonin levels and stress with awe, joy, compassion and peace.

WE LIVE OUR PHILOSOPHY

Most importantly, we aim to create an environment where humans and nature coexist harmoniously. Therefore Bliss & Stars sustainable eco-retreat and journeys are designed to protect nature for the benefit of all beings.

We’re a proudly self-sustaining retreat that unearths inspiration and energy from the natural environment that surrounds us. From our organic produce grown onsite to biodegradable skincare line, from waste management systems to solar energy that provides electricity for the entire retreat, we strive to ensure our guests don’t leave a negative imprint on the environment.

WE PAY IT FORWARD

Share and Empower

We were lucky to discover this beautiful land we live on. We don’t like to think we own it, because you can’t own nature, we are nature’s guardians. So our commitment is not only to protect it for the good of all, but also to share our privileged experience.

Our aim is to include opportunities for everyone in need of the healing properties of nature and mindfulness to visit our retreat regardless of their financial situation. Therefore, we offer donation based retreats a few times a year.

MEET THE FOUNDERS

From a high-paced career and urban lifestyle to slow life in the bush.
After years of traveling and high-paced corporate careers, it was time for change. We discovered the importance of the nature and our innate power to positively impact the mental & physical well-being. A change in lifestyle, merged with time spent in nature, and mindfulness practices is all it takes. Driven by lifelong passions to explore (human) nature and valuable lessons from corporate careers and burnout, an idea of a transformational wilderness retreat was born.
