GEC Retreats

Step away from your everyday

We hold expertly facilitated holistic destination retreats in luxurious surroundings to offer you a chance to disconnect from the busy-ness of your everyday life.  On our life-affirming retreats you reconnect with your aspirations and reflect on where you are currently and where you want to be. We facilitate this process through highly interactive and creative sessions, in which you are provided with time for self-reflection.  You will engage with other like-minded individuals and potentially make friends that could last you a lifetime. A distinctive element of all of our retreats is that they are a fusion of contemporary coaching methods, experiential mindfulness practices and current trends in academic research.


Our retreats are a brilliant opportunity to step away from the everyday, explore a different part of the world and other cultures, enjoy some ‘me time’, invest in a journey of self-discovery and return rejuvenated.

What is a GEC retreat?

The word retreat comes from the Latin word retrahere, which means to ‘draw back’. Drawing back from our everyday life to contemplate on where we are in reaching our dreams and aspirations is a luxury that most of us cannot afford. A GEC retreat is an opportunity to indulge in that luxury, to break out of your routine and disconnect from the pressures of your everyday life.  A GEC retreat is not an escape from reality; you are still connected to and in contact with your family and friends – some of whom may even accompany you on the retreat. 


Invest in yourself. Reflect and reconnect with yourself and with your dreams and aspirations. Return with a better understanding of what you want out of life and how you can achieve your dreams successfully.

Why should I attend a GEC retreat?

Not a day goes by when we are not constantly checking our phones, posting images on social media and updating our status.  In addition to our lives in the digital world, we all have responsibilities and commitments at home and at work. Our current lifestyle is hectic, stressful, tiring and demanding.  In the midst of this busy-ness it is almost impossible for us to carve out some ‘me time’, to look after our physical, mental and emotional well-being and, without realising it, we have lost sight of our own dreams and aspirations. 


Attending a GEC retreat will give you the chance to step away from your everyday, to relax, to re-evaluate your present situation, to reflect on where you would like to be, to rediscover yourself, your passions and what makes you happy. 


Unlike a vacation or holiday, which is simply time off from your everyday routine, at a GEC retreat you will have the opportunity to reconnect with your aspirations in natural, luxurious surroundings and be professionally guided by highly qualified coaches. You will participate in a range of inspiring and creative activities, which will enable you to dedicate time for self-reflection in a supportive environment.  


A distinguishing factor of all of our retreats is that they comprise a blend of innovative coaching techniques, practical mindfulness exercises and the latest insights from academic research.


GEC retreats offer you a chance to unwind and recharge in a serene natural environment whilst focusing on your own well-being and aspirations.   Enjoy a truly stress-free time away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life and become empowered by opening yourself up to new possibilities.
