IBIZA, SPAIN: Walk in Beauty Retreat, Ibiza

Book for the 27th – 31st October

There is a moment in every single class, here in the hills in Ibiza, where the beauty is just absolutely all consuming. There is a moment that is so divine and the feeling is so, so connected and that is where the bliss is, that is where the beauty is and that is where we will arrive at over and over again on this 5 day immersion.

In shamanic terms, the concept of Walking In Beauty, is all about returning to Harmony and remembering that this is the place where our souls feel full of love, full of beauty and fully connected to all that is.

To get to that place, we will allow the fears to arise, to be felt and to move through us and through this release we will arrive closer to peace, to stillness and to the softness that our souls truly love.

To get to this, we must soften, we must relax, we must trust and allow the flood of hormones in the system, to wash through us, allowing us to sink into to states of calm and peace, this is how we have the realisation that we are one with everything, and everything is beautiful.

We will be out in beauty as much as possible, bathing in the natural beauty here and coming into deeper connection with all the elements.

We will have two Shamanic Kundalini Yoga classes per day and a Workshop where we delve deeper into the souls purpose and uncover more of our unique natures and explore fully what this Walk in Beauty way really means for each one of us.
