About Unlocking Your Purpose

We (Sarah and I) believe that all of us have deep within us the knowledge of our true purpose in life. This is different for everyone. It could be to train in medicine and to then volunteer with Doctors without Borders, or to use your humour and creative skills to write and design comics. In our opinion, life and your career are a spectrum. You may stay in one place or in one role all your life and be perfectly happy. Or, you may have embarked on a path and before you knew it, you career trajectory was muddled within the rat race.

This retreat is not a band-aid/plaster to put over all your worries. It is an invitation to look within, to help remove the dirt from your eyes you have collected as you have journeyed along. Through, yoga, meditation and journaling, you are offered the opportunity to journey inwards. To journey back to your true self, to try and shake off the roles and masks you wear to function in today’s fast paced, instantly-gratifying society.
