Your Inner Child Awaits Your Promise​

when we were young

What is the 'I Promise' Retreat?

Stepping away from the daily grind into a world where your inner child reigns. What would it be like to dive deep into cherished memories, heal from past wounds, and rekindle the innocent joy you once knew?

Welcome to the ‘I Promise’ Retreat. Not only an event but a journey to the heart of who you truly are.

A weekend escape to take a deep dive into your past, make peace with old memories, and build a bridge to your future. An experience to reconnect with the innocent, hopeful, and playful side of yourself—your inner child.

Who is this retreat for?

Are You an Everyday Hero?

At the #IPROMISE Retreat, we celebrate and cater to the backbone of our communities – you, the everyday working men and women. You’re the ones keeping the world turning, often at the expense of your own joy and well-being. You work hard, juggle endless responsibilities, and yet, somewhere inside, there’s a voice yearning for a pause, a breath of fresh air, and time to focus on your own needs and desires.

Feel the Weight Lifted

If you’ve been feeling weighed down by the relentless pressures of adult life – work commitments, family obligations, and societal expectations – you’re not alone. Our retreat is a haven for those seeking a moment to step away from the daily grind, to find a space where they can just be.

Nostalgic Yearning

Are you someone that has subtle but persistent yearning for simpler times, often reflected in your appreciation for nostalgia and simpler joys?

Do you find yourself caught in the routine of life, feeling as if your on autopilot. There’s always a sense of something missing – a disconnection from the carefree and hopeful spirit you once possessed in your youth?

Do you have underlying feelings of fatigue, burnout, or even a sense of loss – the loss of your younger, more optimistic self?

Rediscover the Joy of Simplicity

Remember the carefree spirit of your younger days? At #IPROMISE, we invite you to reconnect with that lost part of yourself. It’s more than nostalgia; it’s about rediscovering the simple joys and optimism that once defined you

Heal, Understand, Renew

Join us in a journey where we explore, understand, and heal from the patterns that have held us back. Our workshops and sharing circles are designed to provide insights and pathways to a lighter, more fulfilled you.

Radical Transformations


Before attending the ‘I Promise’ Retreat, I felt like I was just going through the motions of life, weighed down by stress and old baggage. The retreat was a breath of fresh air, allowing me to reconnect with the playful, hopeful side of myself I thought I had lost. It was more than just a break; it was a profound journey back to my true self. I returned home feeling lighter, happier, and more in tune with who I am and what I want from life.

Jordan, Electrician

I didn’t realize how much I needed the ‘I Promise’ Retreat until I was there, surrounded by people all seeking the same kind of healing and joy. The activities, especially the #IPROMISECHALLENGE, helped me release stories and patterns I’ve carried since childhood. I laughed, cried, and most importantly, I healed. I’ve found a new sense of freedom and joy that I haven’t felt in years. This experience has truly been life-changing.

Emily, School Teacher

As someone who’s always skeptical about retreats, ‘I Promise’ was a revelation. It wasn’t just about relaxation; it was about rediscovering parts of myself I’d forgotten. The facilitators were incredible, making every moment meaningful. I left the retreat feeling rejuvenated, with a renewed sense of joy and a clearer understanding of my path in life. I can’t recommend this experience enough to anyone looking to reconnect with their inner child.
