4 day Wild Women's Nature Retreat

Connect with other women in a space of vulnerability and creative expression where we will be diving deeper into our feminine wildness while exploring creative movement, mindful yoga and meditation, earth-art processing in nature, evening sharing circles and a purification ceremony (sweat lodge) on this four day retreat set in the picturesque Tulbagh valley.

On this retreat we will be disconnecting from technology and the daily grind of our modern lives and reconnecting with;

- other women and ourselves in an open heart space
-our sense of wonder and adventure
- our creative expression
- our vulnerability
-our deepest fears and desires
- our sexual energy

Carly Esterhuizen

Retreat co-ordinator and facilitator, conscious cook and nature guide

Carly has always felt a deep connection with the earth and all the creatures living therein. After completing her studies as an interior designer, her heart guided her to another -somewhat less travelled- road entirely, as she spent months living in the South African bush and gaining her field guide certification.

Carly’s other great loves are cooking and nurturing, which inspired her to train as a patisserie chef, learn canine hydrotherapy, host a slow food retreat and gain a diploma in canine health.

It was her abiding devotion to the creatures we share this earth with which led her to return to her roots, as she taught herself to craft mouth-wateringly delicious plant-based meals at her farm guest-house.

Combining her various and varied skills, Carly brings a stylishly earthy insight into nature’s bounty: sharing her knowledge about herbal remedies, foraged food, farm to table cooking, natural healing and more. She will also be hosting the hormone vitality workshop.
