Program

The Wild Coast of South Africa is breathtakingly beautiful and the perfect setting to reconnect with your wild nature. Cultivate your wild nature and reconnect with your intuition through process art, embodiment practices, myth, ritual, and the power of play. Experience daily dōTERRA essential oils practices and learn to support yourself on your journey through the wild self and back out into the concrete jungle. Daily re-integration and rest practices to prepare you for and support your journey back into city living.

Re-kindle your intuition, and creative ​spark, align with your true nature and ​authentic self-expression. And have a wild time doing it. Join Stella and Tiana on a profound ​journey into creative exploration and ​connection on the wild coast of South ​Africa. For seven holy days, no alarms - only sunrise and sunset. For seven holy days, trust the circadian and infradian rhythms of Mother Nature to hold you while you make the heart. Through myth, ritual, archetypes, storytelling, and the power of play, you ​will experience the adventure of a ​lifetime and leave with a treasure map to ​your truest self.

You will receive support in arranging your once-in-a-lifetime adventure. You will receive access to a private Telegram group in preparation for your wild time together. The group will remain active until the following full moon. You may do all of these things; you may do none. What you will have is time to rest, reflect, and re-align. You will also receive one welcome swag bag that includes a doTERRA and Africanna balm jar or roller and an unbleached organic locally grown loofah, among other delights and goodies.

Experiences will include but are not limited to mermaid yoga, dance, sculpture, somatic movement, storytelling, reflective practices, hikes, ceremonies, sleep-overs, plant medicine, meditation, afternoon naps, singing, volunteering, drumming, starting a band, smores, surfing, prayer and devotion, dōTERRA essential oil magic, cave walks, kayaking, morning swims, star gazing, cold plunges, aha! moments, heart-to-heart sharing, friendship, belly laughs, moonshine, and magic. You may do all of these things or none. What you will have is the power of choice and the time to decide.

Temple worship activity

This is a body-positive, self-care activation that includes, affirmations, self-massage, and lymph drainage with essential oils and creative writing prompts. Tiana will capture you in a moment that reflects your wild heart, raw beauty, and true nature.

A typical day

A very loose schedule with a daily theme, exploring the archetypes of Maiden, Mother, Creatrix, ​and Crone, as well as elemental embodiment, with activities, practices, prompts, or reflections you ​can choose from. Lots of time to rest, reflect, move, play, create, and explore.

Included excursions

You will experience one cave walk and cliff jump provided by a local tour guide.

Location

The retreat will take place in Mdumbi, Eastern Cape, South Africa. Swell Eco Lodge, with eco-conscious owners, is atop the rolling hills of Mngcibe, on the Wild Coast of South Africa. Jumping whales, roaming cattle, and a view of rural life in this simple village are the setting of your wild adventure story.

The destination is a challenge to get to, but is possible without a 4x4, and is what makes the journey satisfying. The trip into this part of the world is breathtaking and eye-opening. It is rural and remote. The closest shop with some variety is an hour away. It is not Woolies. Ensure you have enough petrol coming in. Water is in short supply. Use it consciously.
