Samadhi Retreat – Transformation Retreat

Transformation retreats are essentially counselling and therapy focussed holiday experiences. Combining luxurious getaways with a flexibly structured therapy programs and other deep healing body therapies customised to suit each persons unique situation and circumstances.  These retreats are perfect as:

  • Compliments for the personal healing of existing therapy programs
  • Help to overcome problems that have been haunting you for many years or that you just cant quite say goodbye to.
  • People who want the powerful effects of complimenting both a holiday with therapy. To transition from the effects of therapy into the beautiful peace and tranquillity of Samadhi pearl’s beautiful retreat space and environment.
  • Provide effective supervision for therapists who are experiencing burn out and compassion fatigue
  • The beginning of a therapeutic journey of self discovery

There come opportunities in everyone’s life when we stand at the threshold of major change and where our self-identity can be wholly transformed. Samadhi transformation retreats offer people the opportunity to intentionally confront the challenges of their lives and to find the courage to initiate the necessary changes to create a better future for them and for those they care about.

Transformation retreats can help:

  • We mentor you to recognise and seize the priceless moments of transformation contained within the struggles of daily living.
  • We encourage you to develop and create a new loving foundation for personal growth. 
  • We teach you to identify with the positive life skills and abilities that are essentially inherent in your own nature, but may have been forgotten or not developed enough because of pain and trauma.
  • We help you to access positive life skills to help serve you in life’s more difficult situations.
  • We help you to gather the personal strengths you already have and may have forgotten about and re acquaint you to their use.

Transformation retreats are designed to challenge people and to encourage them to find solutions to problems in ways that are not obvious and apparent to current ways of thinking and functioning. We encourage you to challenge the dominating cultural beliefs and values that may underpin your sense of self-identity and to form new values that better reflect who you are now.

Transformation retreats use a combination of therapeutic approaches combined and integrated into each person’s retreat experience such as:

  • Dynamic counselling techniques
  • Narrative therapy
  • Techniques to help manage the effects of loss and trauma
  • Psychodrama methods that encourage the externalising of deep seated problems,
  • Art and movement therapies
  • Healing body therapies to help release deep-seated emotions.
  • Internalised other and outsider witness methods to help with therapist burn out and compassion fatigue

At Samadhi when you choose transformation we walk with you on your journey of change, we challenge you to look at yourself with awareness and self knowledge, to feel and come to know yourself more deeply and profoundly, and in that raw cathartic moment of your personal inner revelation we encourage you to stand strong in the recognition of your own gentle and loving power.

The transformation retreat is for the person who has:

  • Consciously decided to make change in themselves and their lives now
  • Someone who has experienced therapy but wants something more.
  • Someone who has cultivated a willingness to face what is hidden from their self-awareness and wants to go that step further.
  • Someone who is seeking a release from deep fears, guilt, shame and other negative emotions and wants to find true freedom in their life.
  • Someone who wants to reshape his or her identity to find a more positive way to live.
  • Someone who wants to maintain a positive sense of self-esteem and to cultivate happiness as a foundation for healthy living.
  • Someone who wants to feel more whole and less fragmented.
  • Someone who wants follow up and ongoing support to help reinforce the NEW.
