Talks, teaching, coaching and group sessions are all included and will be transformative no matter what level you are at. Whatever your aims. this retreat will take you towards peace, freedom and happiness.
A Natural Paradise
Our setting is so special. It's an unspoilt natural sanctuary with 5 lakes, enchanted woodland to explore and an almost deafening peace and tranqulity. The retreat will help you to DO nothing and just BE, with so many amazing spaces to find ultimate peace, to watch the wildlife and master your own thoughts. Get ready for thoughtless bliss.
Log Cabins & Lodges
Our lodges are currently being newly styled, both inside and out to become a luxuriously simple settlement, all made of sustainable natural materials. Each is self contained with either one or two double bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and lounge with cosy log burners and sumptuos, rustic boho styling. This is the comfort zone.
The Journey & Results
This is not simply a retreat, it is part of your life's journey, your dharma. As you learn, practice and experience profound change occurs and the person and perspectives that have bound and limited you will fade to reveal freedom, peace, purpose and happiness. As the world awakens, this experience will reveal what's next and a whole new and beautiful life ahead.
As you realise and want more from your life, a kind of isolation can occur, where others simply don't see what you see. In this group you will feel a deep belonging. Conversations will be meaningful and the feel is one of a new community or settlement, embarking on a new way to live and building life-long friendships with a common vision and goals
A purpose built and unique, life-changing personal transformation experience is currently being lovingly created in South West England, on the border of Devon and Cornwall. 7 and 14 day retreats will couple immersive, transformational teaching based on the acclaimed Zen Jungle Masterclass, with rich and unique experiences of connection and consciousness. Find presence and practice in a jaw droppingly beautiful 40 acre setting, that's peaceful and bursting with nature.
12 luxury log cabins are being lovingly styled amidst 5 tranquil lakes, unspoilt woodland and abundant wildlife. Add to that, shamanic firepit lounges, drumming and healing ceremonies, Kriya yoga, Cacoa and tea ceremonies, ice baths and cold water swimming, ecstatic dance, fire walking, plant medicine, readings and regressions and you have just some of the regular activities that together with the masterclass, will help raise your consciousness..
Love life, Conscious & Connected
Everything here is about raising human consciousness and awakening, healing the symptoms of the way we live in western society and finally ending the suffering of both physical and mental illness.
The environment and the teachngs will come together to create the most amazing inner peace, enabling participants to find a whole new state of being and a new perspective on life.
Woodland hideaways, beautiful viewing areas, quiet lakeside seating and the community of like minded people will fuel energy and conversation that simply doesn't happen anywhere else.
Simple luxury, natural materials and self sufficient living
Our lodges are currently being re-imagined and will become simple yet beautiful in every way. The use of natural oak, updated interiors and everything you need for a luxury get-away.
High threadcount linens will compliment rustic and boho furniture to give the most effortless living evironments, not because this is simply a holiday but because it will prevent distractions that prevent both practice and learnings.
Raising your level of consciousness is almost impossible with the distractions of TV, the internet and social media. It has become a compulsive addiction for almost all of us, leaving an inability to remove thoughts from our minds or find any peace at all.
This retreat will take you on a journey, which without distractions will teach you full control of your thoughts. Soon you'll be choosing when, what and if you think at all, leaving behind your anxiety and overthinking.
It is our aim to immerse you in an environment more peaceful that you have ever known but first we must break the compulsive habit to need and crave the ideas and information that bombard us and that are all too accessible with the devices we are never too far away from.
There's no TV here, phone signals are intermittent and internet is limited to a schedule
A retreat by name and by nature
Nestled in rolling, peaceful hills on the border of Devon and Cornwall, near to the spiritual surfing community of Bude, the Zen Jungle Retreat is a unique, peaceful, transformational hideaway.
5 amazing lakes and unspoilt woodland create 40 acres of amazing and energetic immersion in nature.
Our project includes renovating 12 existing lodges to create simple luxury, landscaping, planting even more trees, adding woodland and wildlife, the creation of 15 further lakehouse cabins and so much more.
This place is special and soon it will become even more so with ancient fire ceremonies for healing, teaching temples ice baths, lakeside lounges and endless walks and areas dedicated to peaceful presence.
