In late afternoon, we will perform a welcoming ritual and you will get to know all like-minded beings that will support your profoundly transformational endeavors in this retreat.
After dining your first vegetarian delicacies, your senses will melt into gentle acoustic sounds of the Atlantic ocean in a distance. Better to pamper yourself immediately with nice and easy-going walk around!
2nd, 3th and 4th DAY – 25-27 April
Imagine waking up really, really early …just to shake your rocky-like being on an open-air platform, surrounded with mountains and ocean and on the catch of the fresh Qi essence in the air….hearing sounds of cocks and barking dogs in a distance…
You’re still not sure if you are dreaming, right?
But yes, you are in the embrace of this divine volcanic island!
And after breakfast, four amazing facilitators will be available just for you to individually discuss and provide insights for currently hot issues that burden you and prevent you to surrender to your inner blissfulness completely.
For those more frisky, Goran & Sandra will welcome you to balance your Body, Mind, Spirit and by opening the senses, you will delve into your first inner dance journey through meditative movement and improvisation practice. Your dancing appetite will awaken….…..
And how about digesting in a unique state of silent & restful alertness instead of heavily lying on your bed and bla-bla-ying? After lunch we will immerse into Yoga Nidra to reduce our tensions and anxieties.
After good rest in afternoons, Neja will invite you to dig deeper into your habits by mirroring your busy- bossy minds…. to get insights into why something is happening in your life and how to relief yourself from repeating behavior that gets on your nerves.
In this first three days there will be plenty of body – mind processing. But no worries, there will be many breaks too!
After all this experiences, you will finish your days, proudly walking around equipped with tools and skills to bring clarity and quality into your everyday existence. You will begin practicing how to have, know and take charge of your own actions. All your why’s and how’ s will be later on constructively discussed in a sharing circle of extraordinary individuals!
Can’t wait to finally meet you!
Breaking free – expressing your true potentials has really begun!!!
5th DAY -28 April
Today is a day of Depart to Los Roques de Garcia ( Teide national park) – forest & vulcano. It is an easy route, ideal for get to know unique flora and fauna of this preserved area. On the way, you might see the “alcaudón” (small birds which love eating insects) and beetles, such as the “pimelia” (small, black and with bellies).
The pumice stone, abundant on the place, is formed when hot lava mixes with water and hardens, resulting in a porous material (perfect for sloughing away dry skin). This type of stone becomes the essence of the plain so-called Cañada de los Guancheros.
All these colors create a contrast with the coppery colors of La Fortaleza, the great mountain that reminded after Las Cañadas collapsed. The green of the canarian pine trees and cedars add the place a fascinating aspect.
Spending morning until late-afternoon there, you will have time for site-specific exploration – with lots of group movement and exploration.
And for sure after first intensive days you will have something to let go from yourself.
As you will deepen your connection with yourself, old habits will begin falling away, to be replaced naturally with rejuvenated body, regenerated mind and refreshed spirit.
You will keep on asking yourself, why did I hesitate for so long?
