Rewild Yourself. A complete internal reset, to take control of your personal and professional life.

June 22nd – 29th 2019, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

About the retreat

The Rewild Yourself retreat gives you the opportunity to indulge in your passions and interests, to lose yourself and to find yourself; in the UK’s last remaining wilderness, on the hillsides of the Scottish Highlands.

Attendees will be asked to detox digitally and participate in sessions of silence to expand your consciousness. Daily meditation and yoga practice will help heal both your body and mind. Attendees will participate in a ‘solo-in-nature’ experience and swim in the wild to feel at one with nature. You will embark on hikes with the reserve rangers to explore and connect with your own nature. You can step on a mountain bike and go off on your own along the glens and feel present in a ‘living painting’. Attendees will feel inspired by the locals and the management of this wilderness reserve who dedicate their time to creating a better world.

This could also be a great opportunity to bring your partner!


Escape to the heart of the Scottish Highlands, the UK’s last remaining wilderness, and embrace in the privacy of a truly wild environment. This Rewild Yourself retreat will be led by Ingrid Valks, a facilitator for natural leadership and an internationally certified yoga and meditation teacher. Ingrid brings over 20 years of experience in creating memorable live events with impact for corporations and non-profit organizations worldwide. In her business life she connected people with brands and organizations. Today she connects people with themselves and their communities. 

Rewild Yourself

Revitalize in nature, with simplicity and healthy food, in combination with body movement, mind training and relaxation. The title Rewild Yourself refers to Ingrid Valks’ belief that when you take time-off to spend time in nature, away from distractions, it will improve your general wellbeing, restore your body, recharge your mind and improve the ability to connect with yourself and the people around you.

Valks has developed a retreat to work on a healthy mind in a healthy body, guiding attendees to focus inwardly, enhance awareness, deepen the understanding of oneself and develop new 21st century soft skills. This retreat is described as a complete internal reset, unleashing your potential to be the leader of  your personal and professional life.

Individual journey

This Rewild Yourself retreat is not a group process. It is centered around attendees’ individual journeys and joy. Sense and feel free to share, laugh or be still. Read more.

‘Keep close to Nature’s heart … and break clear away, once in a while, and spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.’

John Muir, Scottish naturalist, author, environmental philosopher


Alladale Wilderness Reserve, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, has a story to share. With 100 square kilometers of wilderness it is a place of natural beauty and a nature conservation project too.

It is a humbling experience to be stood atop one of the reserve’s many hills, gazing across a mountain loch, aware that there may not be another person for miles in any direction; enjoying the sense that you are part of it all.

One of the lodges here will be transformed to a unique yoga and meditation sala! All meals will be vegan, prepared from fresh and local ingredients by a private chef. Attendees will feel very special while staying at the Victorian lodge. A home away from home, offering privacy and relaxation.
