Retreat Leader

Isabella Meduri

Owner, Healer, Gypsy at Heart

My journey has taken me from a Financial Advisor to a Healer and guide. After spending 16 years in corporate financial environments trying to conform to social norms and expectations, I found myself feeling as though something fundamental was missing from my life. During the process of restructuring my life, I had to shift my perspective and instead of relying on a pragmatic approach to life, I finally decided to follow my intuition and listen to what my heart had been trying to tell me for years.

Travel has always been an integral part of my life.  Ever since I was a child, I’ve wanted to visit distant and unchartered places.  This deep yearning to seek out the unfamiliar; the undiscovered has brought me to visit 47 countries.  The most transformational moments I’ve experienced in life have been while backpacking in Asia, touring South America and camping throughout Africa.

The time I spent away discovering new places provided me with a much needed escape from a tiresome routine back home. It gave me an escape and the clarity I so desperately needed.  Over time, these “vacations” helped shift my perspective and see life through a different lens.  It was what I needed to finally break through my comfort zone and leave the monotony that I had fallen into.
 
For the first time in my adult life, I felt a sense of fulfilment and purpose.  Curating and sharing meaningful experiences with others is what brings me the most joy and happiness.  I am committed and honoured to be able to be a part of people’s wellness and self-discovery journeys.
