Find Freedom in the Marico – a digital detox long weekend

Loading Events
This event has passed.

If you are looking for a place to restore and replenish over the Freedom Day long weekend, have you tried the Marico? Do you want to:

  • gaze at a campfire, instead of a screen?
  • walk in the valley, not type on a keyboard?
  • sleep under twinkling stars, not flashing LEDs?
  • swim in the Eye, not wade through your inbox?

This is an opportunity to bring your family to a place without network – so rare in modern life. You can detox both body and mind, with a plant-based diet. There will be opportunities for hiking to Tara’s Waterfall, swimming in die Oog, swinging in a hammock, visiting a permaculture demonstration site, learning yoga and relaxation techniques.

Free yourself on Freedom Day and find ease on Workers Day
