I so look forward to these retreats with Sophia & Courtney. I feel so at home with like minded souls whom I’ve never met but feel that we are all connected. The last retreat brought something out in me that I cant explain. The different sounds that I heard from sound therapy made me feel like I wanted to be surrounded by loving sounds all day everyday. I was filled with love because I was surrounded by loving souls that GET me and made be believe I could succeed in my Reiki Healing adding powerful Crystals and soothing sound. I am forever grateful.

We were so lucky and happened to swim with a huge superpod of dolphins – not only was that mind blowing, the reefs were alive with schools of fish – what a privilege to witness – thank you Courtney for the magic you also found us the most wonderful accommodation. We could not have asked for a better or more relaxing holiday.


I had the most wonderful experience swimming with the Dolphins a few years back with Courtney – mind blowing… imprinted on my soul forever! Then last year had another awesome Journey of the Soul with Sophia and Courtney on a Woman’s retreat in the Groot Marico. The combination of Sound Journey, Yoga and Cacao Ceremony. Do not hesitate to embark on a Journey with these two very special Souls… your Soul will be wanting more!
