Silent Retreats 

Resuming in 2021

Imagine...stepping away from your phone, your computer and social media, for 3 glorious days.‚Äč


Imagine...having your whole weekend planned out for you, and all meals prepared by our private chef.


Imagine...what you will discover about yourself in that space: your inner peace, your calm, your clarity and your direction in life. 


Join your host, Kara Swift, for a weekend focussed just on YOU...you'll leave the mountain feeling like you've had an emotional and mental over-haul. 

Step away from your phone, your responsibilities and chores.

Be immersed in nature, yoga, meditation, breath work and maybe even a massage!

Allow Your Body Time to Rest - Your Mind The Chance to Refresh

Join Kara Swift for a weekend at a stunning 450 acre property/horse-stud in the Scenic Rim near Rathdowney (approx 1.5hr from Brisbane and the GC) 

An intimate retreat for you and only 6 others. 

Got a "big birthday" or other special event coming up? Have a private retreat  just for your group of 7 -10 guests (you can request it be a semi-silent retreat and you can also have a cheeky drink in the evenings if you like :) Please email us for more info and available dates for a private retreat. 

Take a journey into silence...


Join us in the rainforest at Springbrook 

  • Just 45min from the Gold Coast, 1.5hrs from Brisbane and a few hours from the Sunshine Coast

  • Retreat away from technology, from small-talk, from cooking, cleaning and planning, and just BE.

  • Yoga classes are totally optional, you don't have to go to any classes and still reap the rewards and the benefits of the retreat

  • All yoga/meditation classes are suitable for complete beginners...a wonderful introduction to yoga and meditation.  

  • All bedrooms are single rooms (shared bathroom) 
  • In your free time you might re-discover those lost simple pleasures like: colouring in (we have lovely colouring books/pencils for you to use), lying in the grass and finding animal shapes in the cloudsGazing off into the distance at the majestic view from the waterfall, take a nap, lie on one of our rugs and read a book under a tree.  

  • Indulge in an amazing massage with a therapist that we bring to the mountain (additional cost).

"A gift to myself"...


Do you have questions?

We'd love to hear from you!

Fill Your Cup...

Do you feel like you spend so much time looking after others and not enough time caring for YOU? 

Before my life as a retreat and yoga studio owner, I founded 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!
