Choosing the perfect retreat/package from the wide range of natural health facilitators available in South Africa could be one of the biggest decisions you’ll make as someone advancing on your journey to wellness, so it’s good to start considering your options right away.
If you’ve decided on a wellness retreat in South Africa, here are some awesome tips to help you decide, as well as a list of the top 20 Eco/Spiritual Retreats in South Africa…
What is a Wellness retreat?
There is no better way to treat yourself than with a relaxing, meditative spiritual retreat. This is the perfect opportunity for you to pull back from routine life patterns and focus on yourself as spirit. This is about taking time out for yourself on a deeper level. It is about creating the space to find your centre, ground yourself, release the old and give birth to the new.
Each wellness retreat in South Africa is diverse and it is important to find one that works for you. When choosing a retreat, consider the following…
- What type of retreat would best suit you?
- What type of content is covered in the retreat program?
- What is the level of integrity of the instructors/facilitators?
- What type of accommodation, where is the location and how easily accessible is the retreat?
- What is your available time and budget?
Choosing the perfect Retreat
The type of retreat to suit your needs
Are you looking for an intensive retreat program which packs a lot into a full schedule? What about just getting away from it all and have a relaxing vacation? Or perhaps a little of both?
The perfect retreat program
This is one of the most important aspects of a retreat. What would you like to achieve? What would be the best options to focus on and are you enthusiastic to do this?
Retreat instructors/facilitators integrity
Do the facilitators come from a place of integrity, and how do you know this? Will the instructor support you in connecting with yourself on a deeper level? Flashy personalities can be impressive at first, but big egos can also distract you from the real job of connecting with yourself.
Retreat location and accommodation
When choosing a spiritual retreat, remember it is a wellness retreat, not a physical retreat. So it is important to be comfortable enough so you can explore, learn and enjoy. However, the content of the retreat program is more important than the physical surroundings. There can be wonderful retreats in simple-looking surroundings. And there can be questionable retreats in impressive surroundings.
In today’s busy, stressful world, it’s worth bearing in mind that retreats do not have to be isolated in remote locations to be effective. Some remote locations can be exhausting to get to and from, especially in outlying rural areas.
Time and budget
Remember that even if you don’t have the money or time to escape to a spiritual retreat in an exotic South African location, you can always create mini-retreats for yourself right at home.
It’s more about your spiritual intent and less about where your body is. The purpose of a spiritual retreat is to pull yourself away from the world and to connect with yourself on a deeper level. Meditating is a great way to give yourself mini retreats in daily life.
