Stillness Retreat and Perseids Meteor Shower


A stroke of luck! Our Lucky Superpower Stillness Retreat usually lasts a week, but we’ve designed a two-day getaway for locals. We think of luck as being random, or “just happening” to us. But did you know you can train yourself to be lucky? What could be more fun than that?

Stillness is hosted at Tavola Villa, a 5-star “opulently minimalist” boutique hotel located on Savusavu Bay. Join us for the Vernal Equinox September 23 – 25. Start counting your lucky stars, because some people have all the luck … and you’re soon to be one of them!

$890 for 2 days, all meals included. Stay on extra days for $325 per night, meals a la carte with a $25 per person per day meal voucher.

The Stillness Retreat experience is described here!

Painting: an easy introduction

Hosted at Daku Resort, the course offers a series of classes with local artist Katrina Brown, whose relaxed and inclusive style makes her a delight to learn with. Katrina  is almost entirely self taught:

“In many ways, that’s a help to teaching because I know exactly what I would have likes to have known when I was developing my skills,” she says. “There are basic techniques that can be taught – just like maths. There’s an approach that is a skill.”

During the course she will cover:

  • Basic drawing skills /Perspective / Shading / Use and mixing of colour / How to look at a subject / Detail / Techniques for painting landscapes

Rates: (includes accommodation, meals, course fees and materials):
Twin shared bure $820
Single bure $1170
