Awaken Retreats

Awaken Retreats have been changing lives since 2001. We have travelled to over 22 countries around the world, exploring locations renowned for their epic landscapes, rich culture, generous hospitality – and delicious food.

Designed to bring you deeper into self-awareness, with the emphasis on exploring what it means to be ‘awake’ to your true nature, these retreats facilitate profound change. They are also full of joy, laughter and adventure! Think mindfulness, yoga, massage, philosophy, group encounter, hiking, music, friendship and new beginnings. Our retreats are all about community, friendship and connection. Participants leave our retreats feeling clearer, lighter, more peaceful and with a deeper sense of personal freedom.
