WOMEN’S DAY RETREAT
Join for a specially curated Women’s Day programme as we embrace the spirit and beauty of the women of South Africa, the backbone of our society. This gathering is intended to create moments of meaning, honour and celebration on Women’s Day.
Connect with yourself, others and nature in The Cradle of Humankind, just 40-minutes from Johannesburg.
…In nature, we find stillness to tune back into our intuition and sacred feminine connection to the Earth…
Join renowned authors and speakers, Lindelwa Skenjana and Lwando Xaso in a conversation themed around the celebration of women, unpacking the important work they do, sharing their journeys, challenges and success as professional women and authors.
We then invite you to continue the conversation over a slow Harvest Table Brunch, mindfully and lovingly prepared using fresh produce sourced from our surrounding gardens.
Tickets are available for guests who only wish to join on the 9th.
(Tickets include access to the talk with Lindelwa and Lwando and the Women’s Day Brunch.)
