When closeness & connection

Turns to feeling worlds apart

It seems unbelievable. The connection was so real once. And now everything you try only pushes your partner further away, making things worse each time.

Or perhaps you’ve given up altogether, turning to secondary substitutes for affection and connection, whilst avoiding your partner. Yet the resentment between you only builds. And the real needs go unmet.

Are you frustrated with your partner and the situation not changing and tired of the same, old reactivity?

Yet somewhere deep inside, do you still believe it IS possible to have that special closeness and intimacy you once shared before?

With the right support

The energy between you can be alive again

Misunderstandings, built-up resentments, grievances and disappointments in relationships can create a lot of suffering. When in the midst of conflict it can seem literally impossible to navigate your way back to an open heart and a space of love and harmony.

It is difficult enough at times to navigate through how your own unique history, past hurts, trauma, unprocessed emotions, beliefs and perceptions impact your daily life let alone how this intersects and plays out with your partner’s. Yet this shared energy field is the platform for rich healing, growth and fulfilment.

The all-inclusive private Relationship Retreat offers you the chance to experience deep intimacy, love and fulfilment. It will provide you with:

  • processes to successfully navigate conflict

  • an understanding of your protective defences and how to work with the emotions underneath them

  • a deeper capacity for compassion and the intimacy it fosters

  • being guided to heal core wounds and patterns

  • a framework for communicating vulnerably, building trust and enhancing passion

  • an exploration of Attachment Theory which can significantly improve all your relationships so they feel more secure and safe

Clear up the resentments with expert guided facilitation tailored to your needs

Take the time to invest in your relationship’s wellbeing

Learn new skills that sustain intimacy and connection

This retreat is not suitable for people with active substance addictions including smoking, alcohol and recreational drugs and whom are on heavy prescription medication/s. It is recommended to undertake a program of physical / chemical detox first before attending your Emotional Wellness Retreat. This ensures that we can effectively work with the deeper emotional content that substance addictions mask and thus increase the likelihood of lasting, positive change.

Retreats are facilitated by Izabella Siodmak, whom founded the retreats in 2003. The support staff ensure that you enjoy the food, massages and the administrative and operational functions. Read more about Izabella and the retreat Approach here.

All meals are delicious vegetarian and gourmet living plant-based. There is no sugar, gluten or dairy and where possible we use organic and fresh ingredients from our garden or local produce. Retreats in Bali utilise fresh to order gourmet raw catering. Living foods are utilised in order to support your body’s cleansing and nourishment whilst you are releasing old, stored emotions and toxins during your process. As a result of the increased nutrients and easier digestion facilitated by the enzymes in live food you can expect to feel satisfied and full, yet not bloated or tired like from conventional cooked meals.

Your residential retreat experience is a private 1 on 1 individual or couples healing journey that touches your inner emotional landscape and transforms you from the inside out. The attentive therapeutic facilitator focus coupled with a compassionate attunement to your inner needs encourages the kind of healing that releases old blocks, reconnects you with your core essence and enlivens your body to heightened vitality. In addition to the psychotherapeutic work, you are surrounded by nature as a potent de-stressor whilst nourished with exquisite gourmet raw foods, massages, energy healing, intuitive movement and more.
