This retreat is for those looking to release, renew, and reboot their overall health and sense of wellbeing with the healing powers of yoga, meditation, Reiki, and spiritual and business coaching processes. The program is intended for those who are walking a yogic, spiritual, or holistic-oriented pathway and are looking for empowering tools to deepen their connection to self and purpose and for those who yearn to pivot in a new direction or breathe life into an existing project or plan.
Everyone is welcome, including digital nomads, those who are between jobs or at a major life crossroad, searching for a fresh direction, and anyone seeking to uncover deeper aspects of themselves or grow newly planted seeds in their career or private life. Come prepared to dig deep and dedicate yourself to the process, even when the going gets tough. Evening, Davorka, and Kristina will support you as you learn to spread your wings to fly.
At a certain stage in life, it is vital that you heal the old wounds that are holding you back in order to discover who you truly are, what you are meant to be doing, how you are best able to do it. Only then can you execute on your purpose and lead a life that is led by truth and self-fulfillment. And what better time to lift yourself out of the mess of the accidental life you are currently living than during this topsy-turvy Covid-19 Age? If ever there was a time to get your stuff together, to rock your world to its highest potential, it is now. And this program is here to help you do just that.
This four-week life empowerment mentorship program will take you on an incredible soul journey that will help remove the blockages that have been holding you back from living your life authentically and purposefully and will then help launch you into your dream life by leveraging simple and effective self-healing, personal development, and business branding tools through a four-week process. Each morning will start with a grounding and centering yoga sadhana with Evening Marie to anchor you and allow your day to start with a clean slate.
Yoga sessions will then be followed by a delectable brunch, prepared by island native and co-host, Stipe. Following brunch, you will meet as a group and tackle the topic of the day in an all-inclusive manner that allows for creative leveraging and insight. There will be short lectures and quick group assignments to help you get attuned with the fellow retreaters and inspire creative flow.
Retreaters can take the quick assignment with them to the beach and find solace in the stunning landscapes that surround them. If there is ever a better place to plant your thoughts on paper, it is sunny Hvar. In the evenings, you will return to the retreat for a nourishing dinner, followed by an evening circle to go over the daily experience, ask questions, and receive support.
Light up and heal your life by empowering yourself with a holistic toolkit that includes enlightening yoga, soothing meditation, and the healing powers of Reiki.
This program is divided into two sections daily: the morning Yoga Sadhana with advanced healing meditations and a Reiki I workshop (or custom Reiki treatments program). The 90-minute integrated holistic Yoga Sadhana will provide you with an inspiring practice to help you tune up and tune into your body, mind, and breath and is the perfect way to greet the day.
The daily deep-dive sessions will focus on learning and receiving Reiki, a beautiful non-invasive energy healing modality. Reiki brings a profound feeling of love and light into all areas of your self and your life. For participants who do not feel ready to learn Reiki, a bespoke Reiki treatment program will be offered instead.
Reiki is a system of hands-touch healing where life force energy is channeled via the hands into the glands, organs, and chakras (the body's energy centers). Reiki is both a spiritual practice and an excellent technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. In a standard treatment, Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into a recipient (and also to oneself). At an advanced level, it can be transferred without touch, through time and space, and can also be used to project positive energy into the past as well as future situations.
Did you know that there are powerful energy centers, known as chakras, connected to your body that are responsible for the way you think, feel, and act and that old memories, feelings, and impressions can get stuck in these centers, therefore, holding you back from viewing life clearly and living life at your highest frequency? Having a deep and harmonious relationship with yourself as well as the world around you is a natural progression to having a profound relationship with your chakras.
This is the key to opening up the pathway to your passions, higher life vision, and purpose. This chakra yoga life mapping journey will help you better understand and balance your chakras so that you can cross the bridge to the next level of self-awareness, compassion, acceptance, and forgiveness in order to walk your path with greater ease, purpose, and joy.
Each morning, the Chakra Yoga Sadhana will deliver a balancing blend of asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting, mudra, and more, in order to bring greater balance and harmony to these key psycho-spiritual energy centers in your being. Each day, there will be a post-practice chakra life mapping journaling workshop whereby you will explore questions taken from the life path awakening workshop and Reiki chakra life mapping processes.
You will relate the themes that are explored during this process to your seven major chakras in order to gain a deeper understanding of the interconnection between them and the way these powerful centers influence different aspects of the way you live your life. There will be short lectures to discuss the qualities and traits that are associated with each chakra center and you will discuss how imbalances in these areas may influence your thoughts, patterns, and physical self. Techniques and tools to address and remove blockages in the chakras will be shared.
Almost everyone has ideas and dreams but sadly only some people actually manifest them. The difference between the dreamers and dream-makers is in their ability to form a step-by-step plan, equip themselves with the proper toolkit, and communicate their ideas in the right way to others. That is exactly what you will do together during the refine your vision program, under the expert guidance of Davorka Tolič, a TRE and essential oils educator, coach, and business consultant. You will actively work on:
1. Points of you (punctum)
This tool will help you create a clear picture of what you want to achieve. Based on your previous vision and dream, you will be able to present it to yourself and others. Using pictures, phrases, and questions will help you go one step further by presenting your dream to the world.
2. Emotional Intelligence
This is a field that needs to be revisited constantly throughout your life and expanded whenever you step into something new and challenging. You will define the areas of emotional intelligence that have room for improvement and help you grow them.
3. Portrait of personal strengths
You all have been developing certain tools to achieve what you want throughout your entire life, but some tools are yet to be developed. You will define what strengths are your most important tools to accomplish what you want and what other tools you need to add to your toolbox.
4. Time matrix and smart goals
You often know what you need to do but end up failing to do it because you have not considered the time needed and were not able to set up priorities. Having a clear plan of activities that fit into the schedule of your life is crucial for your success.
5. Communication styles
Communicating sometimes seems easy enough and yet you come across challenges where it is hard to communicate to certain people. Being able to recognize the communication styles of yourself and others and being able to adapt them is a skill that can make the difference between success and failure in communicating your ideas to the world.
6. Points of you (coaching game)
Before you make the first step on the path that might change your life, it is smart to look at the possible obstacles on the way. This coaching game will help you identify them and find possible solutions.
7. Aroma freedom technique
Everyone needs a little help with motivation, support while undergoing transformation, and someone to believe in them. You can get all this with the aroma freedom technique.
You might be joining Suncokret Dream with just a rough idea, but you will leave with a solid plan, the proper set of tools, and loads of motivation to get out there and make things happen.

The practice will tune you up and into the body, mind, and breath while focusing awareness on individual chakras, related glands, and organs and bring awareness to states of consciousness related to each energy center. Learn to tune into and balance chakras with asana, pranayama, mantra, mudra, affirmations, and more. The Sadhana will develop and expand organically throughout the program and you will learn to perfect your own personal practice to meet your ever-changing needs by employing a rich array of yogic techniques to match your unique yoga expression style.
Writing, journaling, and creative processes will be an integral part of your daily sessions so please do bring a dedicated notebook and pens, as well as a laptop or tablet along.

Suncokret is located in Dol Sveta Ana, a pristine, 12th-century hamlet located just five minutes away from the island's oldest settlement, Stari Grad, yet discreetly tucked away from holiday crowds. A retreat at Suncokret in Dol Sveta Ana provides an ideal escape from ordinary life to a true organic oasis for the soul. The Suncokret retreat center is nestled into a secluded hilltop of Dol, Sveta Ana, which remains unpopulated most of the year.
Dol is an ancient settlement whose first inhabitants date back to prehistoric times. It is a place that evokes a deeper sense of connection to a simpler, more wholesome way of life and is the homeland of your co-host, Stipe, and his family. Often compared to Provence and Tuscany, Dol is beautifully nestled into a lush and majestic green landscape, which is pronounced by lavender fields, olive groves, vineyards, and pinewood forest, and beautifully framed by the distant blue sea and sky.
The village features two restaurants and a cafe. There are no ATMs, banks, or shops, but plenty of peace and quiet to help you disconnect from the stresses of modern-day life. Stari Grad is two kilometers from the retreat and can be reached on foot.
Hvar, the ancient Persian word for Sun God, is rated amongst the 10 most beautiful and sun-drenched islands in the world, and it is one of the richest historically and culturally. Its earliest inhabitants date back to pre-historic times, and it is the center of early Croatian literature, architecture, sculpture, painting, and music, second only to Dubrovnik.
Hvar has 299 square kilometers of rocky, pebble, and sandy beaches and is surrounded by brush and pine forest, aromatic medicinal herbs such as lavender, sage, and rosemary, and is rich with Mediterranean vegetation and exotic wildlife. With its crystal clear sea, fresh aromatic breezes, colorful villages, and majestic, sun-bleached towns, Hvar is the ideal place for a magical journey into an ancient culture and to the deepest seed of your soul.
You will be served two fresh and nurturing Dalma-veg meals per day as well as water, mineral water, tea, and herbal drinks at each meal, and a daily helping of seasonal fruits and treats included in the price. You are free to access tea corners with organic herbs. The meals are inspired by international vegetarian dishes with a distinctive Dalmatian twist and are predominantly made up of fresh, organic, locally-produced island ingredients (often our own), and are prepared with love and care.
The fusion cuisine is conceptualized to support the energetic work of the weekly Yoga Sadhana practice, and therefore is chakra-balancing, nurturing, and fulfilling. Tap water, mineral water, herbal tea, and home-made organic cordials are provided with each meal while a morning coffee and an end-of-the-week celebratory glass of local wine can be ordered on request.
Suncokret Dream offers a range of holistic therapies and life empowering workshops, available on-site and by appointment only after successful consultation.
A beautifully simple, non-invasive, all-natural healing modality for wellness and health management. Bioenergy therapy offers an alternative, holistic way of addressing the wellness of a person. Bioenergy addresses health, not illness, and can therefore help all conditions. It is a non-invasive, beautifully simple, all-natural healing modality for wellness management. The therapy involves four treatments of approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

In most cases, a recipient will experience some kind of positive, measurable result during the first treatment, and by the fourth therapy treatment, positive, measurable results are expected.
Gain insight into your overall energetic makeup by identifying and channeling healing energy into blockages in your psychospiritual being that shape the way you think, feel, act, and react with chakra life mapping therapy. Chakra life mapping is an intuitively guided process that begins with an initial consultation to discuss the issues you would like to address with the therapy. The therapy itself involves an ongoing meditative discussion, where Reiki is simultaneously channeled into the energy field to tap into vital information stored in each major chakra (or energy center in the body).
A variety of intuitive techniques are used to remove old blockages from the energy field. By infusing them with new energetic information, a great physical, emotional, or psychological breakthrough may result from the process. The session is recorded and the results are discussed.
Findings will be offered in a written report, along with suggestions on how to maintain balance in the areas that have been cleansed and recharged. Life mapping therapy (120 EUR) includes pre-therapy consultation, 90-minute chakra life mapping session, post-therapy consultation to discuss the experience, and a written report with your unique chakra makeup and key meditation or visualizations to maintain balance.

An excellent technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes profound healing. Reiki is a system of energy healing whereby life force energy is channeled via the hands into the energy centers of the body, known as chakras.

The powers of Reiki are mysterious and profound.

From Zagreb Airport (ZAG), you can also book a bus transfer with Flixbus to Split which takes approximately two hours and then a ferry from Split to Stari Grad. When you arrive at the Stari Grad port, you will be picked up by Suncokret Dream at 4:30 p.m. to be transferred to the resort.
A bus operated by Croatia Airlines departs from just outside the terminal door. You buy the ticket from the driver 30 HRK (4 EUR). It takes about 30 minutes to get to the city center. There is also a local bus that goes to the bus station in Split to and from Trogir every 20 minutes from a stop on the road in front of the airport terminal. The price of the ticket is approximately the same.
The way to get to Hvar Island is by ferry. There are four major ports on the island, including one in Hvar Town, one in Stari Grad, one in Jelsa, and one in Sucuraj. The closest port to the retreat is the Stari Grad Port. Tickets from Split to Stari Grad cost 47 HRK (6.5 EUR) per person, or 318 HRK (42.5 EUR) per car, one way. No advanced reservation is needed for foot passengers, though it is best to buy in advance if you are coming by car.
If possible, try to match your travel plans with the retreat start and end times, in which case, the most convenient connection is the 2:30 p.m. ferry from the Split Port arriving in the Stari Grad Port at 4:30 p.m. Upon return, you can catch the free transfer service back to the Stari Grad Port of Suncokret Dream at 10:45 a.m. in order to catch the 11:30 a.m. ferry back to Split Port on departure day. The ride from the port to the retreat takes about five minutes. From late June to late September, it is usually possible to ferry directly to Stari Grad from Dubrovnik.
Departures are usually scheduled on Sundays at 7:00 a.m., arriving in Stari Grad at 4:30 p.m. From June 1st to October 1st, there is a catamaran line departing Dubrovnik at 7:00 a.m. and arriving on the island at 10:30 a.m. This option would give you plenty of time to enjoy the sites in Hvar Town before taking a bus to the Stari Grad port where Suncokret Dream would collect you and the others from at 4:30 p.m.
There is a luggage office right in the main square in Hvar, as well as showers and you can even swim during your time in the town. There is another catamaran operated by Krilo that departs Dubrovnik every Sunday at 4:30 p.m. From May 7th to August 31st, arriving in Hvar Town at around 7:35 p.m., from September 1st to October 27th departing at 4:00 p.m. and arriving at 7:05 p.m. From Hvar Town, you would take a taxi to the retreat.
If you plan to arrive or depart at other times or from arrival points other than the Stari Grad Port, it is best to check your options and then take a taxi to the retreat upon arrival. Taxis are readily available at all ports, though you can pre-order one here. To find the bus or taxi station from Hvar Town, you need to walk along the promenade and through the town square to get to the bus and taxi terminal. Taxi fares to the retreat from the ports cost about 15 EUR from Stari Grad, 25 EUR from Jelsa, and 40 EUR from Hvar.
