meets good food while eco-sustainably connecting with nature

Working in a high-paced working culture in a society that prioritises productivity and professional results over wellbeing can be a challenging cycle to climb out of.

The layers of stress and worry cloud the ability to connect with your life's purpose and fill your body with stress hormones causing risk of all sorts of illness.

What if there was a way to come home to yourself?

Join us at The Sanctuary: 

+ Connect with what you truly desire in life
+ Reset your nervous system
+ Learn how to maintain this groundedness in your daily routine
+ Discover a new way of listening to your intuition and navigating your fears
+ Anchor yourself in goals that fulfil your life's purpose

Meet Your Coach

 

I have been there; burnt out, unfulfilled and filled with self-doubt about what direction I should take with my reconstructive surgery career. It took me collapsing while operating on a complex surgery to find out that I had an auto-immune disease. I did not even notice the severe symptoms since I was used to feeling exhausted and anxious.
It took me may years of searching for the right methods that actually work and also to do my own necessary healing!
 I look forward to co-designing a safe space for your healing while also challenging you towards your growth. Bringing highly effective trauma-informed resources to aid you in your transformation together with a powerful community of like-minded souls.

The Venue:
Cara Creek Eco Lodge

 

Situated in a majestic valley where two rivers meet, Cara Creek offers a perfect retreat space for The Sanctuary. It was designed in symbiosis with nature, runs solely on solar power and with the water supplied by the land. This oasis supports us in remembering that we are a part of nature, automatically starting the process of regulating our nervous system and grounding us into who we really are.


Private River Beach Waterfall & Forest
We have our own private river beach with its waterfall nearby and lush green forest hikes. Relax with a clay mud bath at the river lie in a hammock or go paddle boarding along the river.


Garden to Table Meals
Organic & seasonal meals prepared with intention and care throughout the retreat. Grown mostly in their own garden includes brunch, afternoon snack or cake and dinner. Tea coffee, fruit and nuts always available.


Relaxing Spaces
For some downtime in between sessions there are plenty of areas to relax and process. There are cozy communal dining spaces and chill-out nooks to grab a cup of tea, a good book or cuddle up with one of the retreat animals.


Natural Swimming Pool
The pool has an infinity edge overlooking the valley and surrounding woodland and is kept clear and chemical-free using a sand filter, UV filter and diverse aquatic plants.

Communal Living
Eco Pods are every nature lover's dream. Sleep in close proximity with nature from the comfort of a cozy bed. The Pods do not have electricity, and have a small solar lamp. We have 3 showers sustainably heated by solar power and   cold water outdoor showers. There are 3 flushing toilets and 3 dry compost toilets.


Hot Tub & Sauna
A Hobbit-style wood-fired sauna and solar powered hot tub with the pool close by to cool off in between sessions.

‚ÄúBesides the positive energy and support within the group I enjoyed how mindful Zavira was of every participant. I felt she was so amazing at extracting the essentials from whatever was being said and was great at refocusing whenever someone got off track. Her prompts and questions went to the core of things and made abstract things tangible. I appreciated also the humour and the authenticity. She has so much warmth in her, I always enjoy it very much and it makes it easy to open up to her and feel comfortable.‚ÄĚ

“I'm grateful for those soul resonating moments that brought me from turmoil to inner peace on many occasions. In the moment it helped me get clarity in a way that wasn't just a momentarily surface change. But a deeply transformative, connecting of parts of the inner self. She emphasised creating a safe space with words and actions, can't applaud that loud enough. The moments with Zavira were also a catalyst to find passion for my own quest of self development with a deep dive into parts of the frameworks and science behind her coaching. 

Thank you for the time and space you provide Zavira!‚ÄĚ
