Journey to Yourself
a desert & sea retreat

a journey that can be different for everyone.

a retreat with no time table.

we want to slow down.

we want to take the time that is needed.

we want to be led by the natural flow of things.

dive deeper into your topics

  • that might already be present in your life

  • that will appear along the way.

we want to go on a journey 

- to ourselves and within the group.

we’ll open a space

for what wants to be seen,

what wants to be looked at,

what wants to be let go off.

  • connecting with your outer nature

  • connecting with your body

  • connecting with your inner nature

call this journey a time-out, personal development,

call it self experience and self-reflection,

call it a healing journey, therapy,

call it a spiritual journey.

you decide what it is for you.

"This retreat was a gift to my soul. I was impressed by the way Olivia maintained the flow and presence for the group. The elements of nature and dance helped me to heal wounds and move to the next level of awareness. The connection with the desert projected me into a mystical experience beyond time.
The state of presence in nature opened new doors of the soul. We are one with nature with the people around us. I am deeply grateful for this experience that I am bringing into my daily life. Thanks Olivia"

Who is guiding this retreat?

Hi. I’m Olivia and I’m looking forward already to accompany you and the group on this very special journey. I’m a systemic nature therapist. My vision is to help you to connect with your inner and outer nature. There is so much to discover out there – especially about ourselves. I’m aiming to support and guide you through your discoveries based on your own personal perspective.

How do I get there?

The airport of Hurghada can be easily reached from all major airports with a nonstop flight (e.g. EasyJet from Berlin).


The airport is just 30 minutes from El Gouna, where we will meet. I'll organize the airport pick up for you so you'll reach us in the smoothest way possible.


The first day of the retreat is the arrival day (we start at 7pm) and the last day the departure day.
