Actias Selene 

Longboarding, Jivamukti Yoga & Photography Retreat

March 4th - March 10th, 2024 

with Josie Prendergast, Camille Robiou du Pont 

& Eva Lucie Daniela 


In a beautiful world that has come to hooray the hustle, we will be finding our souls dancing to the contrary. For this retreat, we take you to Sri Lanka ; a place where the contours of the land form a kind of sinewy poetry.

The Story-telling we have been dreaming about for so long has just come to life. It is down the depth of silver waters, sunbathing on silky rocks, twinkling in tandem with the languid movement of the ocean that this creative and liberating expedition will come about.

We have imagined the Actias Selene rebirth; taking what resonates the most and integrating it in an unique way that enhances the way we feel, respond, relate and act in the world.

This new paradigm is all about co-creation. Josie Prendergast, Camille Robiou du Pont & Eva Lucie Daniela will be sharing their dreams, passions and visions. They have created a space for you to follow your heart and intuition whilst feeling totally guided.

​This retreat is about celebrating each other and exploring practices from Jivamukti Yoga, Longboarding to nurturing your femininity through Photography. This is an invitation for women to take a deep dive into the most vibrant, emotive, sense of themselves, between light and shadow, to reconnect with their feminine, unapologetically fierce and ever-changing nature.

KURULU HOUSE - Drone.jpg

Kurulu Bay

Kurulu Bay (Sinhalese for “bird island”) is a private sanctuary built around the existing. Overlooking Sri Lanka’s largest and one of its most scenic lakes, Koggala Lake, and surrounded by lush greenery, every element has been carefully considered to offer space, privacy and tranquility, with an emphasis on health & wellbeing. Garden suites and cottages tucked away

on a private jungle estate; each with its own character and architectural style—designed to allow for a sense of intimacy with the surrounding nature. While the pre-existing Kurulu House merges a 1960 Florida architecture style and tropical Bawa modernism, the contemporary rooms and suites were designed by award winning international architects A00.

She was born on the island of Siargao in the Philippines and raised in Byron Bay, Australia. Traveling back and forth from both homes, the ocean has always been near. She is a Professional Surfer signed with Billabong at the age of 15.

Her natural appreciation and gratitude for being graced with the opportunity to travel the world with her surfing has shaped her soul. When it comes to surfing, Josie is head over heels, but always with a lot of compassion. She is a humble woman who devoted a lot of her time giving back to the community and helping out with her Filipina family who are her biggest inspiration.
