About the Event

Join us for a powerful five-day retreat in the heart of the Sicilian mountains, perfect for anyone ready to leave stress behind and tap into new energy. This unique experience combines the powerful Wim Hof Method with the innovative TRYBE Method, crafted by Will van Zyl, to bring us back to a place of balance between human being and human doing.

Throughout the retreat, you'll dive into practical daily practices aimed at enhancing your clarity and resilience. From breathwork and yoga to heat and cold immersion, mindful trail walking, life visioning, and essential nutritional insights, each activity is designed to reconnect you with your inner strength.

Nicky van Zyl, our nutrition coach, will guide you through the benefits of the Sicilian Mediterranean diet, ensuring you fuel your body right while also leading rejuvenating morning yoga sessions to kickstart each day.

Sarah Palmer, known for her work in emotional well-being, will offer effective strategies for managing stress and fostering emotional resilience.

The retreat culminates in a specially designed peak challenge that will test and strengthen both your physical and mental resolve.

With delicious local meals, time for personal reflection, and opportunities for meaningful group connections, this retreat offers a comprehensive path to personal empowerment.

Set against the stunning backdrop of Casa Dal Cuore, amidst ancient olive groves and breathtaking mountain scenery, this retreat is more than a break from daily life. It's a chance to engage deeply with practices that will revitalize and empower you, readying you for a significant positive shift in your life. If you're set on making a meaningful change, this retreat is calling your name.
