YOUR TRUEST, WILDEST SELF
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side.
This retreat will be an immersion of slow conscious living and reconnecting with our truest, wildest self. Tune in with our instinctual senses, enhance our experience of rural nature, and understand our place within it.
she who loves movement – she who values slowness – she who seeks adventure
Although most experiences will be as a group, there will be plenty of space for you to enjoy time to yourself and focus on your own personal journey to well-being.
Get wonderfully lost (or perhaps found!) in this untamed part of the island with us.
Arrival: 16th or 19th September between 4 – 6pm
Departure: 20th or 25th September between 10 – 12pm
MOVEMENT & MIND
At she she we want you to let go of any expectations and embrace being completely open-minded for what we have in store for you. We never communicate the schedule but you can look forward to a dynamic yet balanced program with different practices for body and mind created by Steph Cusack. She believes every woman deserves a life of joy and connection, akin to the moments we share on our retreats.
Offering an inclusive approach to movement and mindfulness, Steph encourages you to realise that “you are the expert of you” and holds a welcome space for guests to (re)discover their intuitive way of being.
Guiding practices that go beyond the traditional labels of meditation and yoga, she will offer you a chance to meet yourself in the moment. Through deep listening, to the both the body’s natural intelligence and the stories of our sisters.
Whether she is guiding a mountain ceremony for the senses or an intimate evening yin, Steph draws from her trainings in instinctive meditation, dynamic and restorative yoga, as well as a lifelong love of dance and ocean bathing in her hometown of Sydney.
Our enchanting retreat house is a 13th Century Monastery set high in the hills of the UNESCO World Heritage Tramuntana range of Mallorca.
This unique family owned home is located near the artistic village of Deià where one can really feel the creative soul of the island. This area has been an inspiration to many painters, poets and musicians.
The property enjoys breathtaking views of the Mediterranean sea, while surrounded by millennial olive groves. Spend some time alone in a quiet nook or hang out with the group in the communal spaces like the cosy living room or the outdoor lounge with infinity pool.
Wander through sweet-scented citrus trees, breathe in the fresh mountain air and watch the sun dip below the ocean's horizon.
Note that this a an old rural home and not a hotel resort, and that is exactly why we love it! We promise the moment you set foot on these blessed grounds, it will steal your heart...
For the preparation of food and drinks we focus on thoughtful eating experiences, merging cooking techniques with an aesthetic of beautiful simplicity and earthly wholeness. Each serving is a result of considering the whole journey from the roots to the plate served on the table.
"What we eat and how we eat is a reflection of the relationship we form with ourselves, our community and our environment”
You can expect a vegetarian menu served family style, combining local and seasonal ingredients with the taste of late summer. We serve plenty of fruits (it's fig season!), lots of vegetables, bread on the side, a pasta night, a paella night, local cheese, yoghurt and eggs. To drink there is coffee, tea, miniral water, cow, oat and almond milk. Wine from local natural winemakers is available at an additional fair cost.
As tasty as they might be, local means we do not serve soy, coconut, chia, quinoa or other non-European imported products. Instead we enjoy the wide delicious diversity the Mediterranean kitchen has to offer.
We understand that coming alone or sharing a room might feel daunting at first, but we assure you that when women come together and share these experiences it is so inspiring, transformative and empowering. A vibe that can only arise when we come together as a sisterhood where all are equal. A safe space without judgement.
Your individual strength and sensitivity will be amplified by the energy of a newfound community, perhaps more than you could imagine. Often, the women we don’t share our daily lives with surprise us with a powerful sense of sisterhood.
No matter your size, age, background, flexibility, etc. – as long as you are open-minded, considerate of others and have a kind soul, you are most welcome.
Together we will take a path that is less certain, have worthy encounters and fulfilling travel experiences while we embark on a journey of awaking our true wild potential.
We can't wait to meet you here!
WHEN WE SAY WILD, WE MEAN WILD
We are the kind of women who like to use a nice face oil (we'll make our own!) but also don't mind a scratch on our skin. The beach we'll go to doesn't have sand or sun-beds but is rocky and rugged, and that is exactly why we love it!
The house is located in the mountains right at the coastline, which means breathtaking views, but also that the weather is unpredictable. Even though we host our retreats in the summer season, stormy evenings are not unusual here. In fact, they are of great importance to nurture the surrounding nature. This is the reason why the Tramuntana area is so much greener than most European islands. Water in general is precious, which means we have to use it mindfully.
The phone reception is not great and the internet is weak. (Nice, right?) Sheep, donkeys and goats walk around freely, and we're in the Mediterranean, so some gecko's live here too.
We are the kind of retreat that goes with the flow of the wind, the energy of the group and at crossroads often chooses the path of the unknown. Nothing wrong with precise planning and having exact expectations about the house, practices and food – however, then perhaps this trip is not the right fit for you.
Yet if you are ready for some unexpected rituals and adventures, curious about all kinds of food and looking to enjoy life at a slower pace, then a she she retreat will be just the escape you have been longing for!
'' When she started letting go, her vision became clearer. The present felt more manageable and the future began to look open and full of bright possibilities. As she shed the tense energy of the past, her power and creativity returned to her. With a revitalized excitement, she focused on building a new life where joy and freedom were abundant.'' - YP

LOOKS REMOTE, HOW DO I GET THERE?
Yes, we're somewhat remote, and that is exactly why we love this location. But no worries, it's not that tricky, plus every guest before you has managed to get here, so so can you :) The exact location can be found here.
The nearest airport is Palma PMI. From there, we recommend coming by (small) rental car. If you don't want or can't rent a car, you can take a taxi. A few weeks prior to the retreat, we will connect everyone to team up, so cars or taxis can be shared. From the airport, a car ride is 40 minutes and a taxi costs ca. 55 EUR. So a shared taxi with 3 persons is about 15-20 EUR per person.
You can also take the bus direction Port de Soller, and get out at stop Son Gallard. Just note from there it's about a 20 min walk up hill. The sweet reward of the incredible view will make it all worthwhile!
For any concerns or further questions, big or small, please don't hesitate to get in touch via email: email@example.com.
We are here to guide you the best way we can, to make this a most meaningful and memorable experience for you.
Warmest, team she she
