Spiritual Retreats

Reconnect with your purpose, your inner calling and your highest potential.

The Benevolence spiritual retreats were organically developed out of what we found to be critical to the mental, physical and spiritual development of Muslim women. Focusing on personal development, nutrition and improving one's spiritual and mental wellbeing, these retreats provide the ideal opportunity for women to evaluate their spiritual journey in a comfortable and nurturing environment.

Why a Spiritual Retreat?

To Muslims, the purpose of creation is to witness Divine Oneness in every moment and in every breath. To bring awareness to the present so that Divine Beauty is manifested. This requires deep introspection and a shift in one’s perception of all that surrounds us. It also requires the space and tools to navigate both the internal and external realities, so that living a God conscious life begins to flow effortlessly.  

Faith is not limited to acts of worship, but rather is a holistic practice of making the mundane sacred, of seeking and witnessing The Divine in all things. It is celebrating ourselves and embracing life to the fullest. Everything around us is calling us to witness Divine presence, and yet the masks that we wear and the clutter that we carry, veil us from our full spiritual potential.

We tap into our spiritual potential by embodying a Sacred Surrendered life. Where outwardly we gently flow with life’s currents and yet inwardly, we are firmly grounded like the roots of an oak tree - surrendering to a Higher wisdom. 

The curators of Sacred Surrender understand the challenges of living in today’s complex world; managing self-doubt and fear whilst trying to retain one's faith, integrity and authenticity. It is with this purpose that the elements of Sacred Surrender have been delicately woven together - to take you on a journey of tapping into your full potential, through providing the knowledge and resources to navigate both our physical and spiritual realities. 

With over forty years of combined experience in health and wellbeing and spiritual development, we invite you to experience personal, relational and spiritual wellness through embodying a more Sacred Surrendered life. Bringing together the physical, psychological and spiritual, we offer a unique perspective on personal growth to fully engage the mind and heart, employ knowledge and wisdom, and perform outer action and inner reflection for positive transformation.

Drawing from traditional spiritual teachings, we assist you to rediscover your purpose, offering practical tools that can easily be applied to current and emerging challenges in your everyday life. We provide a fusion of experiential trainings grounded in a highly integrated model of Islamic philosophy and self-development to support essential wholeness through Salat, daily litanies, and guided meditation, supplemented with skills training in mindfulness, emotional regulation and interpersonal relationship strategies.

With an emphasis on the faith journey, diseases of the heart and practical steps in safeguarding and reviving one's heart in today's world; every moment of the retreat has been tailored to utilise opportunities to explore, discover and grow your potential. It is a highly effective approach that has been refined over time to address the specific social and spiritual needs of women in our community.
