Vedanta Retreat

Facilitated By Craig Warren

R1 595/pp

“A fully immersive day retreat
dedicated to the exploration
of your inner Self”

What is Vedanta?

Vedanta is derived from two words. Veda knowledge and anta end. Vedanta means the culmination of knowledge. It is the ancient Indian philosophy which answers the fundamental questions of life.

What to Expect

The retreat offers a unique, carefully curated schedule designed to optimise all aspects of the human personality. Elevate your thinking, quieten your mind and nurture your body.


Workshop director Craig Warren is a Vedanta student, teacher and practitioner. Through carefully crafted lectures and discussions, Craig will guide you in developing a deeper understanding of yourself as well as an insight into your essential Being.


Yoga has been an integral part of Judy’s life since the age of 18. She has been teaching since 2000 and has travelled to Pune in India many times to study directly under her Guru BKS Iyengar, his daughter Geetaji and his son Prashantji.

Presently Judy holds her Intermediate Senior 1 certificate and as much as she loves to teach and share with others, she is fully devoted to continually expand her knowledge of Yoga to ever more subtle levels of understanding.

Contemplative Forest Walk

Gary Good has been guiding people into wild places across Southern Africa for two decades. His personal passion for being in nature has shaped his life, and he is a keen observer of natural and human phenomena. Gary is a longstanding student of Vadanta philosophy, as well as Mindfulness Meditation. This all comes together in his guiding of transformative inner and outer journeys.

Phakalane Retreat

The Vedanta Retreat will be hosted at Phakalane Retreat. A tranquil retreat nestled in the heart of the Hout Bay mountain range. A nurturing space allowing the body and mind to explore itself from a place of relaxation and peace.
