We’re a collective of writers & natural rebels. We aim to deliver discerning, cultivated concepts and solid recommendations. Since launching in England in 2010, we’ve experienced many of the world’s best spa, wellness and creative retreats. Over the years we’ve evolved from reviewing and recommending retreats to clients all over the world, to opening up discussions on art, music, philosophy and so on.

Our retreat directory highlights places that we’ve personally experienced so we know that they have an all-round good vibe. Some are spa & wellness retreats and others are just great places to stay, rejuvenate and generate new ideas.

We developed our Mulberry silk eye masks from the years of travelling and due to many of our clients asking us where to buy a good quality eye mask for their travels. We decided to create our own and believe it or not a simple bean shaped mask is surprisingly challenging to master. After many trials and errors we think we’ve done a pretty good job, they are buttery soft, large so they block out the light (and other humans), they truly do assist with relaxation, sleep and travel.

Liz Bonney the founding member of Omkara has spent decades touring in bands and freelancing as a graphic artist both careers involved countless late nights. These experiences led her to understand that one of the most sustainable ways to feel confident with your creativity and access the energy required to produce quality results, is to live a healthy lifestyle, at least most of the time, and to be around people and places that allow you to share ideas and find ways to make these ideas come to life.

Please get in touch with us if you wish to know more or if you have an article you would like us to share.
