She has since directed a non-profit organisation, trained as an Ayurvedic Practitioner, and travelled around the world organising, undertaking, and facilitating personal development and leadership programmes.
This is now my third retreat and I keep coming back because there is honestly nothing else out there that I can go to where I really feel like I can return to myself and my true being and feel so comfortable, so safe and so loved in that space. Nothing beats that feeling. We all have our daily lives that we return back to; ones that are hectic and full with so many responsibilities. I love knowing that I can come back to my support network in Nikki, Kev, Walter and Robert as well as the retreat space, environment and tools in meditation.
The Centred retreat has given me so many ideas on how I want to keep developing. I’d really recommend it if you feel like you have done a little inner growth work but feel stuck. This retreat will give you tools and ideas to keep developing and keep growing.
The quality of guidance we’ve had has been absolutely second to none. The speakers are incredible and it’s been so welcoming and easy to integrate with the people who have been a few times and also the new people. I would highly recommend that if you’ve been thinking about it then just book it!
There was a perfect balance of meditation, and other sessions to enable holistic growth and transformation. The addition of having access to the facilitators, including through one on one coaching to address any specific questions, queries or concerns was highly beneficial and very impactful.
The accommodation was sufficient, the meals were delicious and healthy and it was organised in such a way that everything was handled and the weekend flowed without a hitch.
Nikki, Kev and Robert were key in making me feel welcomed and safe throughout the retreat. At first I was not too sure what I needed or wanted to change, but by the end I walked away with a clear goal and understanding on how I can improve myself. I have been implementing these changes and feel so much more relaxed and present when dealing with situations that in the past may have created a lot of stress in my life.
I cannot thank the team enough at Centred Meditation for making me feel like a part of their family, encouraging me throughout and getting me to step out of my comfort zone in a safe way.
Since attending I have had the opportunity to stand up in front of 50+ staff to present a talk, which I would never have done in the past.
Nikki and Kevin are very warm kind and down to earth. Robert and Walter had such fascinating backgrounds and experience in the positive psychology movement and had been meditating and coaching executives for decades. I was a little in awe of them! Between the four of them I had so much knowledge and experience to tap into as they were very open and generous with their knowledge and advice. Having never experienced any type of coaching or mentoring before I found this incredibly fulfilling.
The weekend gave me an opportunity to answer some questions about myself that I had been thinking about for years. It also gave me many fascinating insights into human behaviour and stages of development which changed everything for me. It helped me put things into perspective in a new way and I really wasn’t expecting any of that. I felt changed for the better by the end of the weekend and you will too. I really enjoy meditating now and find it easy to do.
I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn how to meditate properly but also wants to learn how to be a better human and to make sense of their experience on planet earth. I felt very nurtured and connected to everyone in the group. I can see why so many of the participants I met had been to many previous Centred Meditation retreats and I will now be one of those people too. Thank you all for such a positive life changing experience and I will see you again on the next one!
