There’s something truly wonderful about getting away from our ‘usual’ weekend lives and stepping into the beauty of the unknown. Well, not quite the ‘unknown’, but to an exquisite mountain escape that does, quite literally leave you refreshed, relaxed and treated so beautifully.

All of the above happened when a girlfriend and I spent a weekend at Bowen Mountain (that’s the mountain Spicers Retreats’ Sangoma Retreat is cocooned by).

In two nights we managed to completely abandon the stresses of everyday work and city life, and find serenity _ and so much more.
