Where is the day retreat hosted?

Over in the Cradle of Humankind, a winding drive in the scenic and rural parts of Krugersdorp sits Farmhouse58. Bathed in golden sunlight and panoramic mountain views, the space is an incubation for a host of wellness retreats to help nourish the well-earned rest that your body and mind are calling out for.

What is a sound bath and sound healing?

Sound has been used as a calming tool for thousands of years. Sound Healing occurs when specific sound frequencies are created that have a soothing effect on the body and mind.

A sound bath is when these instruments are played for a group to create a therapeutic atmosphere that helps us rest deeply, rebalance our nervous system and release emotions.
