Join us for 11 days in tropical paradise to dive deeper, bond with other like minded intra-and entre-preneurs, and emerge ready to embody your inner visionary with ease, confidence and guts.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
You know the old stories of work are on their way out. You’re sick of black and white thinking around purpose and profit. You’re ready to step into a new model of leadership that’s human, embodied and inclusive. But in order to do that, my bad ass beloved, you also need support.
Space to allow your authentic voice to emerge. Inspiration and support to nurture your sparks of genius. Community and coaching to develop practices + mindsets that sustain your passion + ethos.
WHAT IS IT AGAIN?
That’s where Uncharted comes in. An 11 day immersive experience in the lush, rejuvenative mountains and coastal regions of Sri Lanka, where we create an exquisite cocoon for you to interrupt the grind, indulge in the restorative powers of spectacular natural beauty, and reconnect with your sacred why.
And while you’re soaking up the magic, you can also rest assured that Uncharted is employing local craftsmen, healers, artists and teachers and supporting their economic growth and personal development.
“Uncharted felt like finding and drawing a dashed line on the proverbial map, between my heart and the world. My joy overtook my fear, and I learned how to honor and attune to my inner compass. I left the retreat feeling centered, resourced and re-energized towards what I felt called to create.”
- Sofiya Deva, Founder, This Same Sky
HOW WILL THIS FEEL?
Imagine your most luxurious spa trip, combined with a long heart-to-heart with your best friend, add in an exotic locale with breathtaking views, and a download from the wisest most compassionate version of yourself, and you’re getting close to the experience of Uncharted.

I am currently working, do I need to take vacation for this?"It is entirely up to you and the experience you desire! Are you able to arrange temporary remote/location independent status? Of course you may work, there will be ample free time for whatever serves. Your package even includes 4 passes to the beachside co-working space, Hari Hari House. Also available to you is the opportunity to do differently, which is what changed my own life. UNCHARTED was designed with your work needs in mind, though the more you can check out of your habitual way of working and be fully present with this phenomenal experience, the more you may get. Specifics: There are approximately 15 hours of programming weekly (over 4-5 days), inclusive of week-day yoga/movement. With the exception of about once weekly where we meet over dinner, we will wrap by around 6pm.
Tell me more about the tropical villa and the meals.Nirbana is a luxury villa in Ahangama and has been reserved for UNCHARTED guests only, so we’ll have the whole property to ourselves. It is located along a river surrounded by as many shades of green as you can imagine and alllll the birdsong. You’ll get your own spacious private room with a double bed (or larger), en suite bathroom, AC, and outdoor seating. There is a pool, yoga shala, and fleet of stand up paddle boards. Breakfast will be provided Monday - Friday. Dinner will be provided at least 4 nights per week, with some additional special surprises. There will also be a few additional meals provided at some of our favorite locations as part of our programming or integration sessions. When the kitchen is not providing a meal or we are not scheduled to eat off site together, the kitchen will be available to you for your own preparation. There are also delivery options and tons of places to venture out within 5 - 25 minutes tuk tuk ride. No meals are provided Saturday/Sunday.
