The Whole Truth Retreat specializes in spiritual retreats to support and guide you through times of transformation, healing, and awakening. The unique program of physical cleansing, meditation and yoga, creative process, herbal and plant medicine treatments, nature immersion, and the exploration of expanded states of consciousness forms a strong container in which awareness can grow.
Stanford Village Retreat is one of the original dwellings in the sleepy village; it is warm and welcoming, with wooden floors and shutters. A beautiful closed combustion fireplace in the lounge forms the warm heart of the house, the space for morning yoga and evening meditation. High ceilings, wooden beams, and original wooden floors lend a traditional coziness that’ll have you putting your feet up, country style, in no time.
Accommodation includes a comfortable single or double room with private bathroom facilities, or the vast loft suite with its spacious en-suite bathroom with claw foot tub and power shower. As you relax into the gentle village rhythms here, time slows down and loses its insistence. Undisturbed hours can be whiled away in the lush garden; a private and secure haven to picnic among the fruit trees, veggie patch, and prolific lavender bushes.
Morning sun greets the back verandah, making this a delightful spot in which to start the day. In the late afternoons, the front ‘stoep’ is a perfect spot for tea. The view spills onto quiet roads and dusty lanes, affording a glimpse of authentic Stanford life passing by; a restful joy to savor.
Upon booking, the specifics of your retreat will be planned via a Skype call according to your personal needs, interests, preferences, and Tasha's recommendations. Each day incorporates either a morning or afternoon session with Tasha, engaged in one of the following:
The other morning or afternoon session will be devoted to self study. You will be given practices to complete alone; allowing for valuable time in silence and solitude, fostering awareness and intimacy with yourself. This encourages self support and confidence; building the resources needed to carry healthy attitudes and practices home with you on departure.
Tasha is a certified yoga instructor, alternative health practitioner, Intuitive Art teacher, and the founder of certified organic skincare brand, Mioja. Dedicated to natural living and holistic health, she has spent almost two decades helping people back to their natural state of balance.
Stanford Village Retreat is ideally positioned for a quiet stay in Stanford Village, just a two-minute stroll from the main street, with its galleries and antique shops. Situated two hours from Cape Town, Stanford Village Retreat is a tranquil setting for your stay.
The Klein River offers wonderful river walks, bird watching, and swimming and is just five minutes away on foot. Pristine, wild beaches, which in season offer the some of the best land based whale watching in the world, are just 10 minutes drive away at Walker Bay and De Kelders.
As far as possible, the fruit, vegetables, and herbs used are sourced locally and organically, and much of it is grown, chemical-free on site in the garden. The quality, freshness, and life force in the produce used makes a vast difference to the depth and power of the cleansing / healing processes.
All programs offer excellent, highly accessible nutrition and rest the often overloaded digestive system, allowing the body to shift into healing and repair mode. Depending on the length of your stay, you may experience a reduction in inflammation (the precursor to all disease), increased energy, natural weight loss, the eradication of minor health complaints (eg. mucus conditions, skin complaints, joint stiffness), and a noticeable improvement in more major ones.
Probiotic and fermented foods restore gut health, often a factor in chronic illness or fatigue. Light, easily digested meals may also support quietness and clarity of mind making this the ideal nourishment for the retreat space. Meals are made with great skill, care, mindfulness and love, under the guidance of a qualified nutritionist.
If you would like to receive instruction on food preparation in order to support the continuation of healthy eating and cleansing practices on your return home, this is possible. Water fasting or dry fasting support is available on request.
This option is excellent for detox, radical physical reset; treating chronic illness and inflammation. This includes three cold pressed juices at intervals throughout the day, as well as herbal, food, and vitamin supplements tailored to your nutritional / health and healing needs.
wheat grass, aloe, and rejuvelac are grown / wild harvested / self made by Tasha, your facilitator. Post juice cleanse raw food is served for a time for the transition out of a juice cleanse can be challenging, and its an important part of the process to move through gently and with awareness.
This option is high in life force and rich in enzymes for better digestion and absorption. Meals are served three times a day, using large amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables, and activated seeds, nuts, and grains.
Also offered are special creations such as pro-biotic nut cheeses and whole seed crackers dehydrated at a low heat to keep digestive enzymes intact. Healthy desserts are made with natural unrefined sweeteners such as dates and raw honey, which have wonderful health benefits.
This option will be supporting acid / alkaline balance of your body, your digestive health, and your hormonal balance on an ongoing basis. This meal program offers light cooked food with a large raw food component, a wonderful introduction to a healing cleansing diet if a juice cleanse is not appropriate for you at this time.
