You already have everything you need to live a better life. 

It is all within. What else would you expect from beings made from the debris of dying stars? What is needed are experiences that help unlock our true nature, our gifts and potential. Over the years, we’ve discovered that fusing mindfulness, meditation, astronomy, and nature relaxes mental hyperactivity, increases a sense of ease and acceptance, and feelings of bliss, which shape better futures.



Follow our South African journey, collecting inspiration for a life well-lived (and tales from outer space).

Experience Down-to-Earth Astronomy

The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff.
— CARL SAGAN, American Astronomer


Thank you for your interest in Bliss & Stars. Our mission is simple: To help people enjoy happier and more fulfilling lives – through nature. We believe nothing else is needed to live your best life, no special diet, no particular pose, no shiny crystal, all you need is what you already have. (Not that there’s anything wrong with quartz, quinoa or downward dog, we enjoy those too ☺️.

We’re creating a unique eco-retreat inspired by the collective powers of nature, meditation, astronomy, and gastronomy. Our Bliss & Stars method will help guests discover their true nature. This simplified approach to physical and mental well-being uses nature and the night sky (and your breathing) to transform lives.

Our journey has just begun. Recently, we relocated to beautiful South Africa in search of the perfect location for the Bliss & Stars retreat. We’ll create a magical environment for you to indulge in workshops, courses, mindful mentoring, and free guided meditations – all centered around our unique method.

We invite you to join our community devoted to supporting lives well-lived. We can't wait to welcome you to our retreat in 2019.
