A retreat for holistic wellness, deep relaxation & fierce clarity


Meet your facilitators

The saying is that “like attracts like”. So, if you’re reading this far down the page, chances are you’re independent, driven, creative & have a whole lot going on in both your outer & inner worlds. Sound about right?

This pretty much sums up Sarah & Elizabeth, in the broadest possible terms. Both have successful corporate careers behind them. Both consciously chose to create a more heartfelt style of business — one that values their esoteric & intuitive sides, as much as their ability to manage global campaigns & deal successfully with executives.

Very aptly, these two women from opposite sides of the world became friends during a retreat in Italy. With all single rooms booked out, the only remaining option was a double… but scepticism about sharing space turned into late night walks, talks into the early hours & an impromptu party on the terrace. So, while workshop content is important, immeasurable value exists in the connections to be made & heartfelt friendships to be forged.


Elizabeth Rankich

For me, it’s all about creating & holding space. Effortlessly, gracefully, generously. As an intuitive breathwork facilitator & sound healer, my clients are those ready to release limitations & forge ahead into higher awareness & deep personal insight.

I’ve trained with some of the most recognised breathwork healers in the world, including David Elliott, Dan Brulé & Anthony Abbagnano. I also offer sound healing therapy, during breathwork or as a standalone session.

Having worked in leadership positions within & for some of the biggest & respected companies in the world, my current passion is mentoring people, projects, startups & companies that champion human potential & positive change. I’m also a co-founder of Poster Family, a creative company where design, family & organisation intersect.

You can read more about Elizabeth on her website. Connect with her on LinkedIn, Instagram & Facebook. She is an American based in Copenhagen & the mother of two Danish-American children.

Elizabeth is compassionate, kind and intuitive in her work and guides you through the process of breathwork in such a way that surrender comes naturally. I loved my session with her.

Sarah Davies De Paola

I love the transitional & transformational periods of life. Be they sacred milestones such as birth, or the unexpected beauty in everyday moments which start off small yet end up being life-defining & heart-awakening.

My focus is on supporting people to live a holistic & happy life, whatever their passion & path. I’m also all about excellence, purpose & authenticity in business. After 10+ years in senior communications roles for global financial institutions, I know in my bones that, CEO or entry-level graduate, we’re all just human & our hearts beat with the same needs & desires.

Based in Zürich, I work with global corporations as a senior communications expert & support companies & individuals in holistic wellness. I run events, hold a limited number of 1-1 sessions, provide corporate wellness programmes, & am passionate about connecting communities & supporting new parents through pregnancy & beyond. I’m also a Co-Active Coach.

You can read more about Sarah on her website. Connect with her on LinkedIn, Instagram & Facebook. She is an Australian based in Zurich & has two small Swiss-Italian-Australian children.

Sarah is one of the most naturally gifted coaches I’ve ever worked with. She is intuitive, straightforward and encouraging in her approach, and always inspires me to take action. Sarah truly is a catalyst; she sees the path where others can’t and helps navigate perceived obstacles and roadblocks with grace and ease.
