Men's Well-being - Retreat for Men

Looking for something in your life, and not sure what that is? Feeling a little lost and burnt out? This might be the getaway for you. Whether you have been overworked, or simply feel like you have lost your place in the home or social environment, this midweek retreat provides the time out you need to reconnect or develop a stronger sense of purpose.


Ideas flow when conversations start, minds are opened, and the space is made. With our guest speaker, Sean Purcell, speaking about truly living a life of purpose, active sessions in nature and mindfulness time, you’ll be opened up, to find your way again.


Our experienced surf leader will guide you through what the ocean provides him with. Andrew loves being in the ocean, even if there are no waves, as it brings clarity of mind. This along with being invigorated whilst flowing through the trees on a mountain bike, you’ll leave this retreat feeling refreshed and renewed, with some clarity to focus on yourself.

While on a morning run along a Torquay beach, Sean Purcell went into cardiac arrest and his heart stopped beating, leaving him face first in the water. Sean’s prognosis was bleak, clinically dead for 45 minutes – if he was to survive; his family were told he would suffer permanent brain damage. But Sean survived and is thriving, sharing his inspiring story: the collapse, a five-day coma, a journey of recovery and his quest to find and thank the locals who saved his life. 

Sean is driven to make the most of his second chance at life, sharing his story “Life of Purpose” all over the country. His talk focuses on the importance of gratitude, how capable we all are when faced with direct opportunity or adversity and the need for all of us to capitalise on our unique skill set and truly live a life of purpose!
