Join us for an incredible weekend of healing, connection and fun.
Using the Wim Hof Method and other practices, we will explore our TRUE NATURE as human beings, stripping away the layers to reveal our most authentic selves. This retreat will be held at the stunning Eagles Nest Sanctuary in Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island, BC.
