A unique 4 day experience that includes an holistic approach of Rest, Regeneration, Resilience and Resourcefulness. Facilitated at  a luxury country venue, participants enjoy guided processes, learn techniques, practice mindfulness and meditation, and make use of the venue facilities and other therapists (such as massage, aromatherapy, Reiki and others). Leave refreshed and with  new purpose.


The Stress, Burnout and Productivity Workshop is excellent for organisations and groups. The focus is on applied techniques to reduce stress and burnout, increase productivity and creativity, and to improve interpersonal rapport among individuals. The full workshop runs over 2 days, but can be customised to fold into other team building activities, meetings or events. The activities are fun, effective and based on practical and applied principles of Mindfulness, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Authentic Self-Empowerment (ASE) and the latest neuroscience mind research. Read more here.

Dr. Hennie Geldenhuys is an effective public speaker and can customise talks and workshops for any public or private event or function.


Authentic Self-Empowerment approaches and techniques equip prospective or existing coaches and therapists with new skills, build on existing skills, and introduce the fascinating transpersonal coaching model.
These courses serve as certification courses, or participants may choose to do them just for personal exploration and development. Developed in association with the master coach, NLP facilitator, hypnotherapist and transpersonal coach, Jevon Dängeli. The ASE live training also forms part of the certification course in Transpersonal Coaching. More info on the course here.
