The Inner Realm Immersion
Sanctuary (IRIS) Retreat

If peace of mind is something you desire, IRIS is the place for you to be.

​IRIS is a place for you to learn highly effective meditation techniques to connect with your deepest, wisest Self. Even experienced meditators who have been practicing for years have been "blown away" by how powerfully they can calm their minds in such a short amount of time using these techniques. People who have claimed "I can't meditate" have surprised themselves with what they have discovered at IRIS.

It's a space for you to acknowledge and appreciate your whole self - thoughts, feelings, emotions, behaviour, and all. To learn about what makes you tick as a human. You’ll receive intensive transformational brain training to support you in polishing so you can shine even more brightly.  As well as opportunities to practice seeing beyond the human psyche to the essence that resides within.

Because the program is emergent from the energy of those who participate, it is different every time. Fully customised to the group, you'll be met with a space to transform in ways you might never have believed possible. This is the potency of the space we co-create.

In a relaxed and casual atmosphere, Deb Maes & Divya Darling offer you our wealth of knowledge and lived experience on human behaviour and spiritual transformation to support you wherever you are on your path.

​If your mind is cluttered and congested, you want more calm and focus, or if you’re on the brink of burnout and you need a space to reflect and restore, join us at IRIS.

Just as it's unreasonable to expect yourself to easily lift 100 kg if you're not accustomed to regular weight training, so too it is not possible to practice a skill that we have never developed.

Being comfortable in our own skin, sitting with self in stillness, communicating with others in silence - all of these are strengths that emerge when we cultivate peace of mind.

This is what enables us to access the deep wisdom within our inner being.

How can we develop this skill though when absorbed in the tides of life as we know it? It certainly is more challenging, isn't it?

Think back to when you learned to drive a car... Did you learn on a freeway? No. You learned in quiet streets or parking lots, developing competency in one component at a time and then layering them all together as you achieved mastery. This is the approach we take with teaching the tools to true self knowing.

The Inner Realm Immersion Sanctuary (IRIS)  creates a space away from the hustle bustle of daily living and the  judgement of society at large for you to learn the skills you need to know to deep dive into your inner being.

These include:

  • ​Understanding the nature of the mind
  • Learning how to rewire conditioned ways of reacting so you can respond in the way you choose to
  • Discovering the connection between thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and habits
  • Experiencing certain biochemistry become activated during heightened emotional experiences and learning how to respond most effectively
  • Exploring the way we can see through our own stories into our spirit/soul
  • Seeing through illusions and limitations that had previously created stuck states

​This is a space for you to learn the tools and techniques to release all the layers of dirt and mud (metaphorically speaking) that you've caked upon your gorgeous being through thinking - the connections the mind makes that quite often turn into beliefs and misguided/limited ones at that.

Whilst not a silent retreat, we do use silence as a tool for transformation and self discovery.

Whilst not a personal development retreat, we do teach tools to school the mind.

Whilst not a yoga and meditation retreat, we do practice yoga and meditation to cultivate quietness inside.

The IRIS retreat is a unique blend that others have called "indescribable, "profound," "potent," and "incredible."

And it is a preparatory retreat for our "life-changing" 6 Senses experience.

Because most people simply cannot comprehend how much can
change in just 1 weekend at IRIS, we do
arrival and departure interviews. 

Here are a few of them:
