An invitation to bright souls,
who want to learn, grow and expand into their true essence, 
in an immersive, alchemical retreat, where you will release the old paradigms, gain clarity, realise your unique magic and soul truth to fully birth your Light into the world. 

Gazing at the white filled mountain top of Mount Fuji, you feel a sense of being home. For the first time, you know who you are and why you are here. 

You take another breath wanting to hold on to this moment a little longer and a deep sense of certainty fills you up.

You smile confidently, knowing you are on the right path and recognise what you are meant to do.

You look at your newfound friends and feel so grateful for all the memories you have shared and the amazing community you have found.

The Retreat Centre

YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Nestled in the mountains this peaceful space lies
in a beautiful picturesque town of the Oita Prefecture

As you arrive at the retreat centre, your breath begins to slow down and take in the refreshing crisp air of nature and you are delighted by the simplicity and comfort the land brings. 

Here you are greeted with warm Japanese hospitality by the caretakers as they serve you a warm cup of tea as you admire the cleanliness and spaciousness of the halls. 

It seems like a world apart, so different from what you’ve known. And yet you’ve come home – not only to this magical place but more importantly to yourself.

You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to another time and space while still having all the conveniences of our modern age.

You are not quite sure which to go for first - the hot springs to release all your toxins and stress away or the sauna to awaken it. Perhaps you will do both. 

But first...
