5 Day/4 Night Solo Retreat Vilanculos

A truly mindful holiday

If you struggle with an overly busy mind, a pressure to always ‘do’ and ‘achieve’, struggling with change in your life or simply want to learn more about mindfulness meditation and awareness in a warm tropical environment, then this holiday is for you. 

Come and stay with us in our house in Vilanculos with our big tropical garden full of flowers and butterflies overlooking the Indian Ocean. Here, you will learn more about mindfulness and how it can help you on a daily basis while enjoying and resting in beautiful Vilanculos. Gerry will guide you in core mindfulness practices such as:

  • Meditating with the senses in the beautiful natural environment of the Bazaruto Archipelago
  • Mindful movement and  walking exercises on the beach/garden
  • Practicing with beginner’s mind
  • Practicing gratitude
  • The body scan
You will learn some  of the key attitudes in meditation and how it can enrich your life. Africa is a great teacher for this.
Each day will consist of a 1.5 hour private theory and practice-session with Gerry as well as a morning and evening practice.
Sessions are fully adaptable, You can choose our five-day retreat, where each day we will focus on a different aspect of mindfulness practice. Alternatively, you can discuss a more immersive experience where we will put together a personalized retreat based around your experience and your own path.
