Program

Mornings will begin with a beautifully curated four directions yoga practice. Some days the practice will include more powerful movement and energizing techniques, and other days will be more about releasing and relaxing through yin and restorative. A morning meditation will be held to bring in balance for the day ahead.

The afternoon can be used as free time or you can join with the group for an optional activity on the island - ideas include hiking, visiting one of the many beautiful beaches, snorkeling, going to the fisherman’s village for shopping, spending time at the elephant sanctuary, or visiting temples.

The group activity will correspond to the direction of the medicine wheel. You will meet together again at 5 p.m. You will have evening activities such as creating a mesa (spiritual alter), drum journey to find your spirit animals, cacao ceremony, mala making, and sound healing.

You will end each night with a sacred gathering calling in the 4 directions and spirit guides and offering your gratitude.

You will leave this retreat gifted with the knowledge and wisdom to create sacred space for transformation and healing. You will learn rituals for self care and new ways to stay centered through meditation techniques. You will know how to call upon your guides for help, and how to live your life in a constant state of growth.
