It felt like it was an equal exchange – I worked hard and in return I got to live in this amazing health retreat for six weeks! The whites of my eyes were the whitest I have ever seen them. I felt healthy, vibrant and my mind was so clear! I connected with beautiful people and I barely left the property, because I knew what a unique opportunity this was and I wanted to be in the ‘bubble’
As a team we connected. We didn’t rely on anyone else making it work for us, we made it work for ourselves. We felt grateful, in the moment and most of all we had a heap of fun!!!!
It is such a beautiful place to take the time to find mental clarity and take a new direction. Participating in the activities was magical.
Communal living and dining can be difficult but also so warm and welcoming. It felt good that there were people around that cared for my welfare while I was away from home.
The bonds formed with the other vollies can last a lifetime. YOVO – You Only Vollie Once – was our favourite saying (YOLO had just come become a thing) so soak it all up, work hard, nap, explore, laugh, eat all the glorious food you can, because YOVO (or twice or three times for some) I look back on my time as a Volunteer and remember it so fondly, and you will too!
