Retreat founder, Izabella Siodmak, was yearning for a deeper and more long-lasting transformation for her clients. Having worked as a scientist and then nutritionist, naturopath and herbalist in her clinics she knew this was only a fraction of the healing picture. Having healed herself as a teenager of intense self-loathing and painful emotions that left her close to death, she knew that to work at the core with emotions and the mindset would be the answer for others too. She then proceeded to study psychotherapy, life coaching and various other modalities which, surprisingly, didn’t bring the depth of full healing for others she knew was possible either.

In 2003, she knew with absolute certainty that her purpose is to build a retreat center, where people can retreat away from their normal environment and be surrounded by nature – an opportunity to return to your true, blissful, relaxed nature. With none of the usual distractions for clients, finally she could work deeply with each person 1-on-1 to produce powerful shifts in consciousness for the individual. Working with care and presence and noticing what is most effective in providing the results retreat guests desired, Izabella then developed the emPower experience method. It proved to be the most effective method of clearing emotional blocks and improving one’s mindset for a better life she had ever experienced. It forms the foundation for all the retreats and is also a powerful tool that clients take home with them in order to be able to repeatedly tap into their joy, love, contentment and confidence ongoingly.

It's been just over a week since completing the programme and I feel like a different person. My family, friends and work colleagues have remarked on my positive and happy appearance...

Yoga Teacher

In November 2009 I spent a week working with Izabella on issues relating to femininity, personal healing and relationships. Izabella taught me how to connect with and process my feelings as they arise. Learning this skill has had ongoing benefits for me with taking ownership of my feelings and listening to what they are telling me. Since my retreat I have experienced ongoing benefits in my relationships with my family and am now in a wonderful intimate relationship and am able to communicate my feelings as they arise. I have also been utilising strategies for embracing my femininity and have never felt more at one with myself. I highly recommend Izabella as a coach and facilitator of personal growth and healing.
