We believe that in order to prosper we need to nourish ourselves

Step back from your roles and responsibilities in life and recharge in the beautiful Norwegian countryside overlooking Krøderen fjord.

"Slow down to speed up."

Use this annual retreat to slow down and intentionally design the next 12 months. Having a clear vision and action plan is like adding rocket fuel to 2025, propelling you forward to realise more of your dreams and step into life more fully and meaningfully.

You will be supported in releasing what’s holding you back and preventing you from living and creating a life of your dreams. Through gentle and yet powerful exercises you will be able to let go of:

  • thoughts, beliefs, behaviours and old stories that tell you to show up less than
  • fears and self-doubts that are getting in your way
  • energetic and emotional blocks

This letting go makes room for new and also half-forgotten ideas, feelings, dreams and desires as you form a vision for the year ahead. 

Get to know yourself on a deeper level and set intentions to honour what is dear to your heart and what matters most to you.

Reflect, Revive and Realign with the help of the following practices:

Daily guided meditation & yoga practice

We use the practice of guided meditation together with yoga to cultivate mind and body, increasing self-awareness and consciously entering the new day with focus and intention. 

Guided meditation promotes mental clarity and emotional resilience. Yoga helps us work on our flexibility, strength, and balance. Together these practices calm our nervous system, heightening our energy levels as well as improving our focus and concentration. Together we create mental and physical space and stillness to allow our thoughts and emotions to come to the surface and help us connect with our deepest desires.

Cacao ceremony

Wrap your hands around your cup of cacao, close your eyes and breathe in the warming scent of chocolate and spices as you take your first sip.

We open up to receive the multitude of health benefits cacao has to offer us:

  • Rich in antioxidants, cacao promotes heart health by improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure
  • It boasts mood-enhancing properties, triggering the release of endorphins and serotonin, promoting feelings of happiness and relaxation.
  • It contains theobromine and so it provides a gentle energy boost without the jitters associated with caffeine

We also move from our heads to reconnect with our hearts and our relationship to life. By rising above the day we are open to experiencing more clarity, vision and purpose.

Shamanic Drum Journey

Life is full of challenges and disruptions. The rhythmic sound of the shamanic drum takes us on a journey restoring or reconciling these experiences. It helps us communicate with our inner self to address internal conflicts, heal from past traumas, and achieve a sense of wholeness or balance. Through spiritual growth and insight we move towards a more harmonious and integrated sense of self.

Creative Expression

The focus is on the creative act itself rather than the final product as we explore emotions, thoughts, and experiences through paint and colour.

The process of making art like this encourages self-reflection, reduces stress, and promotes communication, offering a unique and effective approach to emotional well-being and personal growth.

Five Elements Dance

The "Five Elements Dance" is a dance form inspired by the traditional Eastern philosophy of the five elements, namely Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether (or Spirit). Each element represents specific qualities and energies, and the dance incorporates movements, expressions, and symbolism associated with these elements. This dance helps us foster a sense of harmony and balance within ourselves, with the group and the beautiful natural setting we are in.

Sauna Ceremony

Enjoy the exquisite views over the fjord as you sweat in the sauna, releasing toxins from your body. While the warmth relaxes your muscles you can breathe in this calming, meditative space. The steam leaves you feeling invigorated and joyful as we again connect with our whole being. Don’t be surprised if you sleep more soundly that night after this refreshing experience.

Vision & Action Plan for 2025

Reflecting on the past year serves as a powerful tool for personal growth and resilience. By acknowledging successes, challenges, and lessons learned, we gain valuable insights. Using this self-reflection you can craft your vision for the coming year. This vision captures your goals and aspirations, acting as a guiding light and compass. To turn this vision into reality, an action plan is crucial. You will identify the high-impact and manageable steps necessary as well as create a roadmap for the coming months. It means our vision becomes a tangible commitment, helping to motivate us as we work with purpose and resilience to achieve our goals.

What others say about working with us:

''Karolina's sessions opened new horizons of self-knowledge for me. In one of them, I shared my emotions with others in such a powerful way that I never knew I was capable of. In another session, I reconnected with nature and found the missing peace in the forest that I didn't know I was lacking. I am extremely grateful to Karolina for creating a space for spirituality and mindfulness in all of her practices. She is an inspiring person and facilitator, with kind laughter and big smile. Her guidance enhanced the experience, making it both enjoyable and illuminating.''

Philippa is a powerhouse of a leader. She is an expert in her field of coaching, mentoring, teaching and strategy development and has been able to help me grow tremendously in my career and personally. She's helped me move past my own insecurities, and I am now working at a new level. I would recommend Philippa to anyone who wants to succeed in their career.

- Jason Glassner
''I attended Karolina's retreat which was focusing on releasing. The schedule was set so professionally, we did different kinds of meditations, releasing sessions, lost part constellation, and even games which improve empathy and tolerance and helped us open up. Every single practice was extremely powerful and effective. Though we did a lot of inner work it felt so easy and natural as we laughed a lot. She is such an authentic and loving person, she cared about us so much, both as individuals and also as a group, I felt super safe during our whole retreat. I am definitely going to join her other retreats in the future.''

- Gabriella Aczel
Coaching with Philippa has changed how I give myself time and space for joy in my life. She was genuinely interested in helping me reach my potential and I now breathe in compliments and believe how brilliant and strong I am. I am getting outside of my comfort zone and discovering how making business connections is fun. I would highly recommend Philippa as a very approachable and human centric coach.

- Zoi Baldry
"I was fortunate to have a healing session with Karolina. I was amazed at her clear intuitive connection and ability to pinpoint the most important life subjects for me to work on. I definitely feel a positive change in me since the session. I recommend her warmly."

- Christian Marcus
Thirty minutes with Philippa has changed my life!! I can say with confidence that our conversation is one of the most meaningful, powerful and actionable I have had. I am grateful for her willingness to coach me in such a powerful way that I have shifted from focusing on what my mind tells me I ‘need’ to what my whole-self truly wants. Now I am seeking and making active progress toward what I WANT, no matter if others approve or even understand. The changes are happening rapidly.
