Vedic Retreat at Gecko Rock

Montagu Events - Vedic Retreat at Gecko Rock
29th Dec – 2nd Jan 2024
Gecko Rock Nature Reserve
Montagu/Touwsriver Cape Town
The retreat that has been given by the universe:
I have had a vision to hold a retreat over New Year since July, a retreat where we focus on going within as we enter the new year with Vedic Prayer and a conscious experience and choice to journey to the soul. Unfortunately finding a location proved impossible as everything was booked. After more than 2 months of searching for a location, I put the idea of a retreat down for the 2023 / 2024 New Year as I could not find anything. Mid-November I was led Gecko Rock Nature Reserve and checked and for some strange reason 😉, their system had a glitch which kept it empty on the dates I wanted. After a few emails with them, we had secured one of the most sought-after tranquil spots deep in the mountains over the busiest period exactly what I had prayed for.
4 Day New Year Vedic Retreat:
Join us as we refocus, resettle and refresh over 4 days in the Karoo, surrounded by nothing but fresh air, tranquillity and Vedic prayers as we walk into 2024. The 4-day retreat will be relaxed as we enjoy the silence around us allowing the Vedic Mantras and Prayers to sink deeper into our consciousness. Our cabin is positioned high up the side of a ‘Kopje’ and commands a north-westerly view over an uninhabited valley. The closest other accommodation is well out of sight and at least a kilometre away.
