The Happy Retreat

Included with all retreat packages

Dates: Aug 27th to Sep 1st  •  Oct 29th to Nov 3rd  •  Dec 3rd to 8th


True happiness is rarely accidental. It's a conscious choice to focus on the positive and free ourselves from negative thinking. Follow your heart to Grail Springs and take yourself on a life journey to learn what it takes to build your new foundation of happiness, and a lifetime of laughter and joy. Learn the science and psychology behind happiness. Move your body to a new beat and unleash your joy. Savour foods that are good for the heart and soul. Take risks and enjoy how it makes you feel. 

'The Happy Retreat' is designed to reignite our fundamental desire to seek and to find true happiness and meaning in life. 

Happiness IS a state of mind. Not a circumstance. To get there one has to know what is in their heart, for the heart and the mind are One. Grail Springs will provide an inspirational environment for this theme week which will be led by a team of coaches, trainers, healers and facilitators. Isn't it time to open up that new door to a happy heart and mind which has been waiting for you?!
