△ THE MAGNETISM OF THE WHITE ISLAND OF IBIZA △
This beautiful week is an opportunity to discover yourself, to vibrate on this magnetic earth.
Vibrate, Meditate, Detoxify and cultivate the Movement. Give yourself a break, awaken authenticity and happiness to connect even more with your heart. We chose the theme of the initiatory path for this retreat because we have all questioned the mysteries of the Universe in our lives. Not all mysteries are there to be unraveled, but it is a beautiful path to rise to simplicity, through observation and experience allowing nature and practice to reveal our clear reason for being. Together, we put into perspective our existence and guide each other in this magical journey of life.
WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT?
DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE BY OBSERVING NATURE AND YOUR OWN NATURE
During this retreat, we explore a rhythm of healthy life, various activities to move with pleasure and free time to open an initiatory way of meeting with oneself. The world is a reflection of our interior and finding its place is the quest of a lifetime.
During this retreat, we will observe our own perception, the relationship we create with those around us by deepening our intuition. In yogic philosophy, "Satya" means "Truth", that is to say, to display a quality of discernment and lucidity about the state of things and find resilience and the ability to interact with the world around us. We cultivate the art of being in its place and feeling its osmosis deeply beyond changing circumstances. In terms of activity, we are exploring a wide range of practices to refine body awareness, awaken what is dormant in us and find ways to express it. Ibiza is particularly conducive to transformation as it is an island of all extremes where one can find one's balance.
This week enjoy a variety of lessons deepening in all aspects of our being, visit different magical places and experience what it is to live a harmonious way of life.
