Currently being built by Kohi Dellalov and Kohi Savas, Whispering Forest Retreat is a rural forest sanctuary for free spirits, families and nature enthusiasts. When completed, it will operate both as a retreat centre, yoga-shala and as bed and breakfast.

Our mission it to enable and inspire a balanced and peaceful lifestyle by taking you out to nature where everything is in harmony by creation. Our goal is to create a zen-inspired space that is custom-designed with love and self-built with intention to host programs and facilitate events to nurture mind, body and soul.

At Whispering Forest, we believe in the healing energy of nature and plant-based meals as the essential element for our physical, mental and spiritual health. We offer healthy meals, daily yoga classes, hiking opportunities with an emphasis on sustainable living.

    Ivan and I have been on a journey to giving birth to an ambitious dream. After three years of labour, we are very excited to be so close to bringing our retreat centre to life. We feel very proud and amazed by what we have accomplished so far and hope to move in by the end of the summer to continue to work on the inside finishes. However, we are facing a bit of a financial challenge due to increasing prices. Please help us cross the finishing line with your donations. For anyone who donates $100 or more, we would like to offer a free one-night accommodation once we’re open.

    Thank you for your love and support.
