Croatia Wellness Holiday

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 we will do together during the Refine Your Vision program, under the expert guidance of Davorka Tolič, a TRE & Essential Oils Educator, Coach, and Business Consultant.

Check-out Time:

You are situated in one of three semi-attached stone cottages. Each is representative of one of the three realms of existence: primal, human, and heavenly, while each of the seven rooms has been designed to represent one of the seven major chakras that govern the way Suncokret Dream thinks, feels, and acts. No matter your choice of cottage or room, your stay will enhance the holistic nature of your experience.

Earth and fire cottage - the primal realm

Single rooms in a traditionally furnished Dalmatian-style cottage with a warm and grounding feel. This cottage is air-conditioned and features three private single rooms, each with a ceiling or desk fan. Cottage residents share the cottage bathroom, which is located on the ground floor, and the bedrooms are located on the upper floor of the cottage. Rooms one and three are furnished with a single bed and room two has a double bed.

The ground floor features the main retreat kitchen and dining area, which is open to all retreat participants until 10:00 p.m. There is also an enclosed garden with dining and lounge areas, as well as an outdoor yoga terrace. Booking priority for rooms in this cottage is given to solo travelers or a family of four, willing to share the communal areas (kitchen, dining room, garden, etc.) during the retreat.

Wind and air cottage - the human realm

Double rooms in a little stone cottage, with a comfy-cozy feel. This cottage features two cozy bedrooms, a quaint cottage bathroom, a kitchenette with a stovetop and kettle, and a patio with a view of the veggie garden, a hammock, and a seating area for four persons. The cottage has air-conditioning, heating, and free Wi-Fi. Room four features a romantic-style metal-framed double bed and can be fitted with a set of twin beds upon request.

Room five is furnished with a set of twin beds which can be placed side by side to form a double. It is possible to book this cottage exclusively for two-four persons. Booking priority is generally given to two friends traveling together or family members traveling together on retreat, though rooms four and five may be booked as a private room by a solo traveler or couples, too.

Ether cottage - the heavenly realm

Bright attic rooms with private, en-suite bathrooms in a cottage with a light, heavenly feel. These elegant and minimalistic attic doubles come equipped with private, en-suite bathrooms and en-suite air-conditioning with cooling and heating options. Room six, mini-suite, features a double bed and is ideal for a solo traveler in need of additional privacy and comfort while on retreat or a young couple.

Room seven, the master suite, is furnished with a set of twin beds that can be placed together to form a double bed for a couple. The cottage residents share a kitchenette and outdoor sundeck with lounge furniture. The cottage is situated adjacent to the indoor yoga loft space, which features a lounge corner and spiritual library. Booking priority for the master suite is given to friends or couples traveling together while the mini-suite may be booked by a solo traveler or a couple.

Program

Who is this for?

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 Marie and Davorka will support you as you learn to spread your wings to fly.

Concept

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.

Approach

Each morning will start with a grounding and centering yoga sadhana with Evening Marie or Davorka 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.

Chakra yoga Sadhana

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 creativity

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.

Location

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

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 Island

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.

Things to do (optional)

Suncokret Dream offers a range of holistic therapies and life empowering workshops, available on-site and by appointment only after successful consultation.

Bioenergy therapy

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.

Treatment involves the channeling of life force energy into the specific parts of your body, based on protocols or recipes for health maintenance. 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.

  • Bioenergy wellness boost - 30 minutes, 30 EUR
  • Bioenergy therapy package - 120 EUR (four consultation sessions to discuss the current issue and daily progress, four therapy sessions conducted over four days, and final consultation and recommendations for upkeep)

Chakra life mapping

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.

The sessions are open to both beginners and seasoned yogis alike and can focus on developing skills in one or more practice areas, such as your asana, breathing, mediation, and chanting practice, as well as help you analyze and create healthier daily habits or at deepening your understanding of yogic history, styles, philosophy, spiritual anatomy, Ayurveda, and more.

Reiki treatments

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 chakras are related to glands and organs and also control the way you think, feel and act, and therefore, a Reiki treatment is both a physical but also mental, emotional, and spiritual technique that helps reduce stress, aids in relaxation, and promotes healing. Reiki treatments can be given while lying down, seated, or standing.

The recipient is fully clothed. At an advanced level, it can be transferred without touch and can also be used on a quantum level to project healing energy into the past as well as future situations. Using the chakra life mapping technique can also be used to discover and release blockages within a person's layers of being and release karmic patterns. The powers of Reiki are mysterious and profound.

In a classic Reiki treatment, the Reiki master will channel universal life force energy through their hands, eyes, and thoughts into key meridians on the body and subtle layers of your being. The Reiki is highly intelligent and knows where to go to help deliver a soothing, balancing effect that supports stress release and a deeper sense of inner peace.

This is non-invasive therapy is done fully dressed and can involve gentle physical placement of the hands onto key points of the body, or it can be done without touch, according to the preference of the recipient. Several variations of a classic treatment can include a 30-minute chakra balancing treatment, a 60-minute front line of the body treatment, or a 90-minute front and backline of the body treatment, depending on the needs and preferences of the recipient, as established during the 10-minute pre-treatment consultation.

  • 30-minute chakra balancing treatment - 30 EUR
  • 60-minute classic Reiki treatment (front line of the body) - 50 EUR
  • 90-minute full-body Reiki treatment - 75 EUR

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by bus

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.

Arrival by ferry / boat

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.

Arrival by taxi

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.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 16.94% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 10 days before arrival.
