BLISS & STARS EXPERIENCE

DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND

Mindfulness I ASTRONOMY I NATURE

We have consciously designed the Bliss & Stars experience to help get you out of the daily grind. To awaken to explore the wilderness inside and around you.

From the daily actives to the accommodation, Bliss & Stars embrace the grandeur of the surroundings with views of majestic rocky outcrops, the mountains and valleys of the Doring and Brandewyn Rivers.

"We believe that we can all awaken to the beauty of who we are and the profound simplicity of life through rewiring our daily habits and spending more time in nature."

Off-the-grid retreat in South Africa

BLISS & STARS METHOD

Our easy-to-use approach fuses the collective powers of meditation, nature, astronomy, and the community.

Together, they relax mental hyperactivity, simplify the seemingly complex, and cultivate discovery and self-inquiry.

When the brain is stimulated by new experiences, it is freed from its old ways.

We guide you to awaken to the stunning magic and profound simplicity of life and of who you are.

Bliss & Stars is 100% secular, and can easily compliment any religion or spiritual practice. Our teachings are straight-forward, down-to-earth, and dogma-free.

PEACEFUL YET ENERGIZING​

Meaningful connections

We use what’s widely available and accessible: The breath, body, mountains and night sky.

Well, that’s not entirely true. We do use technology. And we happen to have the most advanced private astronomical observatory in South Africa

We are also proud to be off-the-grid, which encourages us to switch off the technology and renew the connection with ourselves, nature. As a result, we become present, calm and centred.
