We help people to achieve the changes they want, by guiding them to become aware of the subconscious beliefs that have shaped their lives and showing them how they can adopt a different approach to achieve sustainable transformation.

It seems rational that because we have lived with ourselves for a lifetime, we should already know what we are thinking and why we are behaving in the way that we do.

However, because these thoughts and feelings are often rooted in a personal story created during our very early childhood, based on our perceptions of the actions and reactions of those around us, they are buried deep within the subconscious mind.

Your story is what has shaped your view of the world and through it you have filtered everything and everyone you have ever interacted with. Subsequently it is the application of this story that has created the mental, emotional and physical reality you live in today.

Change your awareness. Change your life.

Our uniquely effective approach to personal transformation takes you through a process of delving into why you’ve made the choices you’ve made throughout your life.

The awareness you’ll gain will enable you to change everything

That moment when it all becomes clear… and you wonder why you couldn’t see it before.

But, the perceptions formed in your very early childhood are deep below the surface.

Becoming aware of your story and consciously exposing what has been hidden within the layers below the conscious parts of your mind allows you to view it objectively and realise how it has shaped the choices and actions you’ve taken.

This simple and powerful realisation, teamed with a different approach to making choices moving forward, has the power to change everything for you, not just for now, but for good.

Our intensive immersions are for you, if:

  • you’re not as happy with your personal life and/or relationship situation as you’d like to be
  • you have big changes to navigate, whether or not they’re of your choosing
  • you are feeling stuck in a rut or experiencing repeated cycles of situations occurring in your world
  • you are missing a sense of purpose in your personal or professional life
  • you’re at a crossroad and are not sure which direction to take

We’ve been there, right where you’re standing now

Exploring your story takes personal courage, space, time and an experienced team of guides.

Our team have all personally travelled the same path (we have literally walked miles in your shoes) and understand the challenges as well as the peace and fulfillment that this journey can create.

Small awareness shifts can lead to massive change

Join us on one of our intensive immersions and – within a safe, secure and compassionate environment – uncover your story and set yourself on the path to living your life to your fullest potential.

All you need to bring is your desire for a life of something more and your courage to explore yourself in a safe and compassionate place.


Commercial Business
Before the retreat I was feeling tired and rundown. I was searching for some life direction and life time purpose. I actually said to Anna Schaumkel on my arrival that I didn’t want to go to my grave with the legacy of just working a job. During the course/retreat I found that my work and personal life values were out of kilter. I discovered the lifelong story that has been holding me back. Anna was brilliant at helping me discover this and dragging out of me in a very gentle way some in-depth aspects ingrained in who I am. She is just brilliant at understanding one's story and her ability to articulate exactly what I was trying to express is phenomenal. I highly recommend this course to anyone that is feeling burnt out; constantly rushing between work and home. This course is something unique in discovering your own mindset and providing you with the practical and tailor made tools to change/upgrade ones mindset and more importantly finding fulfillment and purpose in your life. This course is extremely dynamic. I haven’t come across anything like it in my years of personal development discovery. It is very synced and thorough, but more importantly you come out of it with personable actionable tools that will change ones old belief and mindset patterns for the better.

I was already committed to a high level business coaching program when I considered attending the 2 day intensive. Any investment in time needs a return and I wanted assurance that it would be of value. Anna was very direct that this workshop offered a different prospective and would enhance my development. She was right. The content and delivery was precisely what I am requiring at this time as I have been navigating the total change of everything that was familiar in my life and in my career. Anna’s gentle guidance through each step of this program really resonated with me. Thank you. I look forward to integrating what I now know and realising all I am now equipped to create.

Anna has a trusting, professional and charismatic nature which made me feel comfortable to share personal topics and take on board her experienced, relevant and insightful advice. I also found Anna’s high level of communication and follow-up emails extremely professional and reassuring. I am so grateful for the happiness in my life and Anna has encouraged me to keep creating more of this my journey of self-awareness. Thank you so much.
