“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realising who you are at the deepest level.”
Eckhart Tollé

"What we need to become happier and to make the world a better place, is not more pious illusions, but a clearer understanding of the way things are"

- Sam Harris


At Dragonfly we help you heal and grow to live to your full potential.

We are often stuck in repetitive and limiting stories about ourselves and others. Our ability to live fully in the present is hampered by worrying about a future that does not exist as well as past baggage and old patterns.


Dragonfly is a place of calm - and also of work- where we can become more aware of our real selves, breaking these cycles and living as whole people, authentically, and coming to the realisation that you already have all the tools to heal yourself.

This is the dream of Larissa Mulder-Barnett and her partner Hilton, sharing from their journeys, growth and training to help others.


Join them on your own journey to healthy living in the present.

Create. Dream. Discover


Reiki Healing

Reiki is a powerful yet non-invasive ancient Japanese energy healing technique that accelerates the body’s own healing abilities. Reiki is not part of any religion or belief system and is a powerful, safe and non-invasive technique that balances the chakras or energy centres in the body and heals on all levels – spiritual, emotional, mental and physical. Reiki is one of many tools that can assist healing and growth.

Larissa is a certified Reiki Practitioner based in White River, South Africa.

"Empathy is simply listening, holding space, witholding judgement, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of you're not alone".

Brené Brown

"We live in a culture that only wants to talk about what's going well. Anything that is not going well is positioned as a detour from the main road. The truth is that pain is not a detour from the main road. Pain is part of the road we walk as human beings." Susan Cain

"A healer does not heal you.

A healer is someone who holds space for you while you awaken your inner healer, so that you may heal yourself."
