Who is this journey for?

A good night’s sleep is highly coveted. Its rewards come in the form of vitality, clarity and wellness. If the rhythm of the city has disturbed your sleep or if your have not experienced truly deep and restful sleep, this AWE journey is for you.


Our first peaceful sleep guest reported

That she had been attending sleep clinics at leading international medical centers and none of them gave her the good sleep she was seeking. Her sleep app recorded 100% sleep quality on the first night of this program and stayed at this high level throughout the program.

Our guest had long experienced low-quality sleep. The app, Sleep Cycle, shows the days before the 3-day program. Then, on the first night, for the first time in the guest’s life, the app recorded 100% sleep quality. The second night was recorded at 97%, and the third night recorded 100% sleep quality. Our guest is delighted and immediately shared these results with her sleep clinic.
