THE WILD LEADERS RETREAT
THE ART OF SELF-LEADERSHIP THROUGH BODY, MIND AND SOUL CONNECTION.
The Holistic Leaders and Wild Oasis are very excited to invite you to:
“The Wild Leaders Retreat.”
Leadership starts from within. And so self-leadership is the fundamental trait of any good leader.
To evoke a culture of appreciation, focus and optimism around us, requires us as leaders to connect deeply with these qualities within ourselves, share from here and lead by example.
The intention of this retreat is to explore The Art of Self-Leadership, whereby we focus less on the leadership rulebook and more about a return to our natural, whole state. This state we call "wild". Beyond conditioning, beyond the limitations of our mind, beyond stress, beyond anxiety, fear and external expectations. Treating this exploration as an art (rather than a science) allows us to deeply connect with ourselves so that we can lead more authentically, powerfully and with compassion.
Set in the very beautiful Wild Oasis and completely immersed in nature, we will be exploring what it feels and means to be a Conscious Leader as we use our thoughts, emotions, sensations and intuition to connect with life around us. Practicing to lead from the body, mind, heart and soul.
Dominik and Shell, your guides will take you on a journey of self-awareness, relaxation and transformation as we weave together breathwork, movement, self-enquiry, yoga, workshops, ice-bath, sweat lodge, live-music, ceremony, celebration and more to bring you home to your truest nature.
Created for anyone who sees themselves as an impact-led leader, whether a small business owner, entrepreneur or leader in an organisation, we want to invite those of you shifting the paradigm in leadership through increased self-awareness, harmony, connection with your heart and a journey within your own consciousness.
You are the change-makers. You are a mix of kind and wild. You have a growth oriented mind and you want to live up to your full potential but without overworking, burnout and disconnection.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
You will discover the magic of conscious breathing and gain insights, inspiration and clarity with themed breathworks led by Dominik, as supported by Shell. Through the power of your breath, you will be taken on a journey to connect to your own truth and to feel the essence of what it means to be you. Daily guided breathwork sessions are a transformative experience that can lead to lasting change and a beautiful unfolding of the path you are on.
Daily Workshops & Experiences
Individually, with a partner or in a group, we will take you through self-inquiry and connection exercises that have been most powerful on our own journeys as Leaders. You will have a chance to challenge your believes and thought patterns, witness and be witnessed, find liberation from what is holding you back and so much more.
Yoga, Meditation & Movement
We will start every day with movement, yoga or active meditation, to get us into the body and our felt sense. Throughout the days will guide you through other conscious movement exercises.
Celebration & Togetherness
There will be plenty of time where you will experience the power and beauty of being part of a community. We will share our meals together, dance, sing, enjoy live music and celebrate in a conscious and connected way.
Guidance & Support
In addition to these 5 days of support, we are offering a 1:1 Coaching Session one week before the retreat so as to ensure a smooth entrance to this work when you arrive to Wild Oasis. We will also gather the tribe of Wild Leaders online one month after the retreat has completed to support your integration.
Time in Nature
Wild Oasis is located in a peaceful, remote location with abundant nature all around, perfect for hikes and rest time. We will witness the stars as we sit around the fire and we connect during this transformative experience.
Hot and Cold Therapy
Making use of the stunning facilities, you will have the opportunity to explore hot and cold therapies through ice-baths and sweat lodge, in a safe space and supported with breathwork tools and support from Dominik and Shell.
Time for Silence and Introspection
During this time together, we will create a space for you to go inwards, to listen to your own heart and guidance as we fall into designed silence. This will be time for you to introspect, journal and be with yourself in nature with no expectations from the outside world.
Nurturing and nutritious meals will be served throughout the day. We will have two main meals, brunch and dinner, and plenty of snacks to keep us fuelled throughout the day. We focus on regional, fresh and seasonal ingredients.
This will be a beautiful and transformative experience and we are grateful and excited to welcome you to be part of it with us.
Shell (Holistic Business Coach)
Shell understands the challenges of Leadership only too well having spent over a decade as a Director in London managing multiple teams. Her life was centred around work, travel and socialising and very little thought was given to wellbeing until 2016 when she started examining the effects of overworking and disconnection within her corporate life.
Her journey towards Conscious Leadership had begun and she is now a qualified coach, yoga teacher and breathwork practitioner. Having established her business The Holistic Leaders in 2021, Shell now works globally with entrepreneurs, leaders and business founders through her online coaching programmes. Her mission is to help these leaders expand their lives and businesses in a mindful and emotionally connected way. Shell loves feeling good through holistic wellbeing and her mission is to share this with impact-led leaders globally.
Dominik (Coach, Yogi, Breathworker)
Before arriving in the mountains of the Algarve, Dominik spent many years leading teams in different digital businesses (e.g. Google) in Berlin, Dublin and Munich. Curiosity and his personal quest for more presence and aliveness led him towards various mindfulness and consciousness practices. Bringing them into his role as business leader became his mission and still is. He is a Mindful Leadership Coach & Consultant, Certified Alchemy of Breath Facilitator and guardian of Wild Oasis Retreat Centre.
Drawing from his experience as COO or VP of Marketing and his own inner work now his intention is to hold space for you with presence, an open heart and open arms. He strongly believes in the self regulating and healing potential within each one of us. He is passionate about sharing the transformative power of the breath, the present moment, music and from the heart.

WILD OASIS ALGARVE, MONCHIQUE
Wild Oasis is a paradise nestled in the mountains of Monchique and guarded by a powerful ancient forest where we cultivate presence and connection.
We create spaces that nourish self-empowerment, authentic expression and transformation. Join us to slow down and reconnect to a natural rhythm.
Arguably one of the lushest retreat centers in the south of Portugal, the Wild Oasis is your space, if you want to get nourished by nature. Bath in the forest or the natural waters from our mountain spring.
Wild Oasis offers different types of accommodation, a sauna, plunge pool, a forest, garden, stunning views, enough spaces and hammocks to be by yourself and a spacious practice space (dome).
HOW TO GET THERE
The closest airport is Faro, which is ca. 1h drive away. You can take a bus or train to Portimao and the local bus from there to Monchique, take a taxi (ca. 65€ - we can help to arrange it) or rent a car.
If you come from Faro you can take a bus or train to Portimao (3-4h and 10-15€) and the local bus to Monchique from there.
We are on top of a mountain right in the middle of nature and at the same time right next to Monchique (only 20 mins walk to the next super market).
