Our Story: From Crisis to Awakening

Three retired professional rugby players who represented South Africa, Wales and Scotland at the highest levels, each of whom, after retiring from their adrenaline fuelled rugby careers, faced profound personal crises. 

Struggling with loss of identity, physical and mental health challenges, depression, addiction and financial hardships, they each embarked on a solitary path of healing. Driven by their darkest moments, life led them back to the nurturing embrace of nature. Together they will guide you on an extraordinary journey of self-discovery and healing.

THE MODALITIES

Our individual journeys involved exploring natural healing

meditation and healing nutrition. These transformative experiences

led to not only physical and mental healing but to revealing our

unique purposes and gifts.

 

An Immersive Retreat Experience

 

We have united to offer "The Warrior's Path," a 5-day immersive men's retreat in the serene Perthshire Highlands. Limited to 12 participants, this retreat is designed to guide you through a transformational healing experience, encompassing:

01

SWEAT LODGE

Sweat lodges serve as a profound holistic tool, blending physical detoxification, mental rejuvenation, and spiritual enlightenment. This ancient practice, rooted in indigenous traditions, offers a sanctuary for individuals to connect deeply with themselves, their community, and the natural world. Through the transformative power of fire and earth, participants emerge purified, refreshed, and more aligned with their inner wisdom. Embracing the sweat lodge experience is to embrace a journey of healing, self-discovery, and communal harmony, honoring the timeless wisdom of our ancestors.

03

MEDITATION

Meditation is a profound practice that nurtures mental clarity, emotional calm, and physical relaxation. Through various techniques of mindfulness and focused attention, it allows individuals to delve into a state of deep peace and heightened awareness. This practice fosters self-discovery, reduces stress and anxiety, and enhances overall well-being. Regular meditation leads to increased concentration, emotional stability, and a greater sense of harmony with the surrounding world. It is an invaluable tool for anyone seeking to cultivate a tranquil mind, a compassionate heart, and a life of mindful presence.

05

KAMBO

Kambo is a traditional healing ritual, acclaimed for its potent therapeutic effects. Originating from the Amazonian indigenous cultures, it involves the application of the Kambo frog's secretion to small burns on the skin. This practice is highly regarded for its ability to cleanse the body, significantly boost the immune system, and enhance physical endurance. Many adherents report remarkable improvements in mental clarity and energy levels. Kambo is sought after for its effectiveness in treating various health conditions, reducing pain, and fostering emotional resilience. Engaging in Kambo therapy is a commitment to deep, holistic healing, offering profound physical and psychological benefits.

02

BREATHWORK

Breathwork is a powerful and transformative practice, designed to enhance mental clarity, emotional balance, and physical well-being. By focusing on controlled breathing techniques, individuals can access deeper states of consciousness, release stress, and unlock emotional blockages. This practice promotes relaxation, reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression, and aids in self-discovery and personal growth. Breathwork is a tool for anyone seeking to improve their overall health and achieve a harmonious balance between mind, body, and spirit, making it a vital component of holistic self-care.

04

COLD WATER THERAPY

Cold water therapy is a revitalizing practice, known for its remarkable benefits to physical health and mental resilience. By immersing in cold water, individuals stimulate their body's natural healing processes, enhancing circulation, reducing inflammation, and strengthening the immune system. This practice also builds mental toughness and emotional fortitude, as it teaches the mind and body to remain calm and adaptive under stress. Ideal for athletes, wellness enthusiasts, and anyone seeking to invigorate their daily routine, cold water therapy not only refreshes the body but also sharpens the mind, fostering a sense of vitality, clarity, and invigorated well-being.

06

SAUNA

Experience the transformative power of detoxification at our men's retreat with our specially designed sauna sessions. In the warmth of the sauna, your body naturally sweats out toxins, cleansing itself in a process that rejuvenates and refreshes. This detoxification is essential for maintaining health, aiding in the removal of impurities that accumulate in everyday life. The sauna's heat encourages deeper circulation, which not only helps in flushing out toxins but also brings nutrients to tissues, enhancing overall bodily functions. The intense heat sharpens mental focus, builds endurance, and promotes a deep sense of rejuvenation. Regular sauna use can lead to , improved organ function and a strengthened immune system. The sauna experience is not just about relaxation, but about purifying your body, clearing your mind, and revitalizing your health.
