My solo retreat with Mikal was an incredibly rich and worthwhile experience. Having one on one teaching for a period of 10 days is very rare, and Mikal is very skilled at guiding effectively.

Private retreats come in two forms and are only available to people who are serious about their personal and spiritual growth.

The two forms of private retreats are:

  1. Group Retreats

  2. Solo Retreats


Private Group Retreats

Private Group Retreat contact form:

These retreats can be anywhere from 1 to 10 days and are in general limited to a small number of people.

Please let me know what kind of topics or interests you want the retreat to focus on

They are organised by any individual who wants to bring together a group of people to explore life in further depth.

The focus of the retreat will be discussed with the person organising it and can cover a multitude of topics depending on the need and interest of the group. This can include, but is not limited to:

  • how to manage stress and live with more peace and ease
  • self worth, confidence and assertiveness
  • time management
  • intimate relationships
  • mindfulness and meditation
  • physical wellbeing and health
  • emotional wellbeing
  • mental wellbeing
  • spiritual awareness and growth

If you are interested in potentially organising a Private Group Retreat, please fill in the form to the right.



Private Solo Retreats

Solo retreats are you and me together in a remote location for 8-12 days. No mobile phones, no TVs and no outside distractions.

This is total immersion into the essence of life, discovering and learning things that otherwise are impossible or would take years to achieve in your normal surroundings of work, business, family and friends.

These retreats are completely tailored to who you are and where you are at in your life.

Solo retreat are not available as an 'off the shelf' program you can just purchase. I am not willing to take anyone on this intense journey unless I know the person, nor do I believe you should unless you know and have worked with me for a while.

In other words, you need to know for sure that I'm the right coach for you and I need to know for sure that you are ready for this level of depth and experience.

How do I get there?

We start with one-on-one coaching with 2-3 sessions a month for as long as it takes to get ready for the retreat. Depending on where you are at on your personal journey and how well you respond to the coaching program, this may take anywhere from a few months to years.

There is only one way to find out: Get started. Go to the Individual Coaching page, fill in the application form and mention that you are interested in moving towards a Solo Retreat.

How much?

Solo retreats are typically 8-12 days during which time I'm solely there for you. Depending on the length, venue and location, your investment is likely to be between NZ$10,000 & $15,000, including everything apart from your own travel costs.
