Lewis Deep Democracy: Uncovering the Gold Within Retreat

Discover a life-enriching experience that will enrich your overall well-being and unlock new dimensions of personal growth and fulfilment in the land of bliss, Dechen Chöling. Our program is designed for people like you who are dedicated to leading, facilitating and enabling others. Take a break from the day-to-day fast pace, grind and stress of life and discover surprising enablers to clarity, inspiration and insight.
Throughout our time together, we will help you uncover the gold inherent in difficult situations and how these challenging times can become opportunities for growth. You will leave with heightened self and interpersonal awareness and new ways of being with yourself and others. These new-found awarenesses will be anchored in cutting-edge psychological concepts that align with the Buddhist way of life.

Lewis Deep Democracy is a powerful methodology that enables individuals and leaders to take transformative action in their personal and work life. Listen to Myrna Lewis on the Lewis Deep Democracy approach here, or on her TED Talk.


We will start each day with some form of meditation, centring or mindfulness practice – this will be optional.

The daily programme will be filled with teachings and highly experiential journeying (with oneself, interpersonally and in groups). The program will continue into the evening. We will blend ritual, dance, art and breathwork.
