RECONNECT WITH POSSIBILITY

It’s time to reconnect with yourself – and possibility.  What could possibly be more important than your well-being?  

Now in Bali for the first time, The Gathering is a life-changing event that you simply won’t want to put off any longer.  It’s about reconnecting with your mind, body and soul, with that deeper knowing that you’re not living even close to your potential, and with the stark reality that, just like for everyone else, time is running out for you too.  

This isn’t about taking time out of your life, it is about deciding that it’s time for you to live with purpose.

LIFE IS SHORT, AND THE DECISION IS YOURS

What are you waiting for, to start doing what you love?

Do you also tell yourself that you’ll do ‘it’ (whatever ‘it’ is for you), when you’ve sorted out all your ‘stuff’, and when you feel confident enough or good enough, and have the time, money and energy, or the perfect idea, solution or project plan?  That’s not happening, ever.

Waiting for someone to come rescue you?  Not happening either.

What is happening is that you are infinite potential, and that the decision to live more into it, is one only you can take.

Is it always easy?  No.  (that’s why most people don’t).

Is it worth it?  You already know the answer to that, and that’s the soul purpose of the Bali Gathering; to help you reconnect with your brilliance and your beauty; your ‘enough’ness.  Not when you’ve done another 10 years of therapy or read 27 self-help books.  Now.  Here.  Enough already. 

Truly growing up and taking your place in this world, isn’t for everybody.  

If you want to stay in your comfort zone, prefer complaining or blaming others for what you don’t have, or you want us (or someone else) to do it for you, you’d be better off staying at home. 

If you’ve decided that you’ve had enough of playing small, that you’re worth more, and you want to be nourished and nurtured into your greatness by world-class faciliators in a beautiful and tranquil environment, then come join us.

THE BALI GATHERING IS PROBABLY NOT FOR YOU IF

  • You have reached your full potential, or you’re not interested in reaching it.
  • You still think that the problem is ‘out there’.
  • You’re not into personal development work.
  • You prefer blaming others over taking responsibility for what you want.
  • You’d rather stay in your comfort zone.

THE BALI GATHERING IS FOR YOU IF

  • You realise that time is running out for you too, and that ‘now’ really is the time to do something about it.
  • You feel unfulfilled, lost, empty or disconnected.
  • You want to be held, nourished and nurtured by world-class facilitators.
  • You love traveling and warm climates.
  • You appreciate the challenge and the power of group work.
  • You understand that in the end, life is a complete ‘inside job’.
  • You’re ready to face up to and break through whatever’s still holding you back.
  • You like the idea of combining deep personal work with fun and lightness.

Astrid

"The Gathering was the most wonderful get away.

It allowed me time to be still and quiet and find out what is important to me and about me. It was a great time for reflection and transformation, and gave me the space to be me.

I had the most wonderful experience - thank you." Astrid

ABOUT THE GATHERING

The Gathering Retreat was created by Jeanne and Linden Booth and Bennie Naudé, in a quest to create the ultimate eco-retreat.  

After running the first Gathering in South Africa in 2013, we were delighted to find out that we’d got a winning recipe and with minor fine tuning, continued to run two more Gatherings in South Africa on Linden & Jeanne’s farm in the beautiful Baviaanskloof.

Jeanne’s been dreaming about a Bali Gathering for the last couple of years, and here we are!

Elsewhere on this page are the words of participants as they try to capture their Gathering experience; we’ll just say that it’s probably one of the best retreats money can buy and if you’re serious about transformation, you’ll love it. 

NOURISH AND NURTURE
We chose ‘nourish and nurture’ as the backdrop for everything we do at The Gathering.  From the way we prepare ourselves months before and your rooms the day before you arrive to the way we say goodbye to you at the end and host the post-retreat integration support sessions, it’s all with one thing in mind: to nourish and nurture you from way before you arrive until long after you’re gone – so that you can get into the business of personal transformation.

SYNERGY
Something else that makes The Gathering unique is that our facilitation team have been working together for years.

Not only do we complement each others’ skills beautifully and seamlessly, but because we (literally) compare notes about participants daily, we create a synergy towards your transformation that is simply second to none.

BALANCE & VALUE
Balance and value are cornerstones of The Gathering.  We offer a full programme and, even though everything is optional, strongly encourage you to participate in everything we offer because it was all designed with ‘balance’ in mind.

We stimulate and challenge (lovingly, of course, this is no boot-camp) your mind, and your preconceived and much-treasured limiting beliefs about yourself and life itself.  

We provide ample support to help your body process and integrate the change work.  

We offer many ways to stimulate your creativity, and we truly hear and see you.  

There’s time for deep and sensitive personal work (we bring decades of experience and a multitude of techniques and therapies) and there’s time to have fun, enjoy music, and connect with each other.  (Just because it’s a solitary journey does not mean you have to do it alone).

YOUR ANSWERS, NOT OURS
As we bring a variety of unique and unusual experiences to you, it’s all designed to help you connect with your own wisdom, your truth, your vision, your passion, your purpose.

We facilitate (make easy) your journey; we do not prescribe or dictate, or pretend to have the answers or walk on water.

We’re human just like you; we just happen to be exceptionally good at what we do.

If you want to hang out for a week, not do much, not change much, and go back to ‘same old, same old’, give us a miss; you’ll be disappointed.

If you want to get of the best facilitation that money can buy, come to The Gathering.

Shirley du Plessis

"The Gathering made me get closure around my marriage. What would have taken months to mourn, complete in a week, done & dusted.  During the entire experience the loving support and guidance was there.  The road map asked the right questions and I got the correct answer PLUS a fool proof way to deal with what comes up. There is no time like now, you have the rest of your life to live with yourself why wouldn't you want to sort yourself out?"  Shirley du Plessis


Lionel Bourgeois

"It gave me HOPE to love, hope to feel, hope to make my marriage work, hope to re-connect, hope to regain my status in society and at home, hope to have fun, hope to channel all my energies in ‘Jobs Out The Box’ (a long-time dream!) and hope to become the spiritual being that I was designed to be.

The Gathering beats everything that I have been to – This called for Real change. Don’t hesitate, don’t think – clear your diary and GO!" Lionel Bourgeois


Marijke Alblas

"I gained more insight in dealing with people and situations,looking at my future and making clearer plans especially in regards to my children. The Gathering is well organinsed and you will definatly benefit enormously from it." Marijke Alblas

Change Management Consultant praises the Gathering Retreats


Debbie Ausker

 

"This is my first day of my new world. I look forward to stepping into the unknown, confident to explore new options for me! I became aware of the traps that keep tripping me up and I was able to identify this very clearly. I choose to release myself from jail and I feel confident to soar into a new world knowing that I deserve the joy that I choose for myself. It takes great courage and commitment to look at making lifestyle changes but it’s so worth it!" Debbie Ausker


Izaan van Zyl

"There is no other place where you can do the things I have done in a week and learn the things I have.

Just having experienced the love this place has – all of this is priceless.

Thank you so much for helping me change my world. Thank you." Izaan van Zyl


Mike

"I came here to remember and regather myself and an opportunity for rejuvenation and to reflect on my purpose, calling and its manifestation. The gathering way surpassed my expectations – it did all of this and more. It has helped me stand tall again, to be open in all respects. It nourished my wellbeing on all levels and I now walk with boldness and energy. This will take me forward and I have a renewed spirit to do this." Mike
