Retreats

Escape to Wellness and Explore Sri Lanka 14-24 February 2019

This is a voyage of discovery, of the self and of mesmerizing landscapes.

Imagine strolling along the coast, warm light breeze, pristine sandy beach caressing your feet. Think of afternoons by the pool, in an oasis of calm surrounded by unimaginable beauty. Find out all about your hidden inner resources, put them into positive action and make new plans. Take time in wonderful surroundings to explore how to create your new story. Explore in the safety of a small group of adventure and soul-seekers.

We will use activities and positive affirmations to get to the bottom of what is happening now in your life and create an absolutely clear purpose and ideal outcome. We’ll help you find the limiting beliefs which hold you back and re-frame a positive mind-set.

Through the tools of life coaching, we bring on inside-out transformation so you may create the life and the relationships that you seek. We will gently guide you on your own personal journey allowing you space for rest and reflection, helping you explore your inner power to dream up your own future and bring on actions grounded in your own beautiful, unique being and sense of connection to a larger wholeness.

More courageous, more daring, more adventurous you!

First our group arrives and relaxes at NEGOMBO.

We then set off to DAMBULA and on the way we spend time in a deeply peaceful Buddhist temple with the golden Buddha where we will begin the process of beginning to trust that what is happening to you is really an opportunity. Sit in peace in the sacred temples of Dambulla and rediscover yourself.

As the quiet of the temples reaches into your ‘inner you’ during our trip to ANURADHAPURA the next day, you can no longer deny that part of you which is rising up and demanding to be heard.

The baby elephants at PINNAWELA will begin to help you to open your heart.

When we arrive at MAYA LAKE at DAMBULA you’ll find out about hidden gems that crises in your life can help you un-earth. You can start removing your ‘anxiety gremlin’.

Immerse yourself in the surreal beauty of nature at AMAYA LAKE in ELLA. Here we begin to unlock some of the issues which are not supporting you. You’ll get to explore and understand what the people in your life are reflecting back to you, the parts of you which are unhappy and which need to be heard, listened to and cared for.

SIGIRYA ROCK Early morning climb out of your comfort zone up this spectacular rock fortress as it stands 200m above the surrounding countryside.

By the end of your escape in GALLE you will feel you have got to the other side of a knotty problem which has been bothering you and you created a new world for yourself free of over-powering emotions.

Finally, you get to enjoy the vast vistas of the tea plantations. This is time to relax and integrate the experiences, sights and insights you have gained so far while you sample some freshly picked tea. The chalets made of recyclable materials help you feel a part of nature itself. Learn to listen to your inner knowing and begin to trust your own insights and build your coping strategies.

You will receive at least 2 massages during the trip with the addition of a tailored blend of Aromatherapy essential oils for a powerful therapeutic combination. This blend of oils is an ‘anchor’ which will travel with you as a part of your healing process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your guides

Three of us joined forces to create this potent voyage for you, supported by the beauty of Sri Lanka and our combined expertise.

Arc Adventures is a collaboration of enthusiastic individuals that all have the same passion in life, adventure. They promote sustainable travel to minimize impact on the world. On this trip, they are our guides.  

Fran Doidge is a relationship coach and therapist. Fran uses catalytic coaching questions and mindfulness, to help you overcome anger, frustration, anxiety, fear, shame or simply deep hurt.

I love working with Fran because her delivery is full of integrity and comes with a true healing touch.   Nothing is impossible for Fran, she’ll have you back in shape in no time at all. Body, mind or soul, she has such a holistic approach! Fully centred and connected to her true self. When I first met Fran I was totally hocked for years on her unique offer of massage combined with aromatherapy and coaching- what bliss!

Over the past 10 years, our connection grew stronger. Our skills are complimenting naturally and together we deliver even more potent transformation. Fran’s workshops are jam-packed with knowledge and resources, all delivered in Fran’s relaxed, friendly and open style.

The best thing about Fran is her extensive knowledge of the body, as a whole, her wisdom, and her kindness.

Gabi Gogan is a transformational life coach, coaching women who are ready to do what it takes to dive deep within and reconnect with their sparkle, get excited about themselves and their purpose, bring their sparkle into the world and create the life they desire.
