Silent Retreats  

Come on a journey into silence...away from your busy life and your busy mind.

Sound familiar?...


In the midst of everyday life, you crave a moment to  connect to your roots... but that moment rarely seems to come


Life is so busy and fast and you long for more than a few hours to yourself. To fill YOUR cup.


Life is LOUD...the people, the technology, our chattering minds! Do you crave silence, space and re-connect back to YOU?

The most thoughtful of gifts...

Many of our guests on weekend and one-day retreats are there because a very caring friend or family member realised they need some time out. Life can get overwhelming and a retreat can put things back into balance again. 

We can send you a beautiful gift voucher presented in a gold card, for you to give to them, or we can email you a digital copy. They have 12 months to use the voucher on any retreat they like. 

You can choose a dollar amount or specify the retreat you'd like to book them in for.

Please send us a message below to order a gift voucher and we can tailor the perfect gift for your loved one.

Silent Meditation Retreats Gold Coast - Kara Swift

A little about me...

Before my life as a retreat and yoga studio owner, I created and ran for 15 years, 3 Day Spas on the Gold Coast.  My specialty was bringing groups together for very indulgent Pamper Days...and for the last 8 years I have taken "self-indulgence" to a whole other level with weekend immersions into silence, self-reflection and connection. Giving people the space and tools to slow down in this so very fast paced world. 

Teaching people how to easily meditate is a very great love of mine and the results are life-changing for so many people. I look forward to going on a journey into silence with you!
