Retreat into nature and connect with yourself in the beautiful surroundings of El Cortijo Nacimiento in the Sierra Cabrera, close to Mojacar in the province of Almeria, Spain.

On the Autumn Equinox there is equal day and equal night all over our planet. The turning of the seasonal wheel starts to prepare us for darker evenings, a time to plan for the winter cycle and to balance your body, mind, and spirit.

At this time of year a yoga and journaling retreat in Spain is like no other experience. Imagine waking to pure peace, watching the sunrise over the hills, drinking in the warmth of a new day. A day, which will unfold magically unlike any other.

The retreat will combine the practice of yoga asana, meditation and journaling, designed to both awaken and ground you, bringing balance and inner peace.

Yoga and meditation will enable you to connect to your inner spirit and enable your journaling practice to draw out the hidden depths of what your heart wants to say.

Our yoga practice has been designed to be followed by anyone at any level. Lianne tunes in intuitively and works to ensure that everyone works comfortably within their capabilities. If this is your first venture into yoga you will love the way that your body and mind work together to bring harmony and peace to your day. As a seasoned yoga practitioner, you will be encouraged to deepen your connection with yourself.

Even if you don’t think you are a writer, you will be inspired to gently let your words flow. It is vital that you journal and write in the right place, in the right frame of mind, that you let go of your self-consciousness, become one with yourself and write without judgment.

Combining yoga and journaling in the beauty of Sierra Cabrera will certainly release any stress in your body and unblock your creativity, allowing your words to flow.

Our journaling classes are facilitated by Jacqui, a seasoned journaler, writer and author. She will gently coax and encourage everyone to put pen to paper. By the end of the retreat she may have even inspired some of you to write a book.

Come and be inspired, gain balance, inner peace and a deeper connection to you.

Healing Day for Josie’s Recovery Programme

Healing Day for Josie's Recovery Programme

As many may know, 2 & 1/2 years ago Josie, our niece suffered the most tragic and traumatic experience. Josie’s Mother, Father (my husbands brother), younger Sister (Caisie) & Brother, partner and best friend were in a tragic accident in Jamaica (where they had only just landed on holiday). They had a head on collision with a car which was driving on the wrong side of the road towards them. This caused her mother, father, sister and best friend to be killed almost instantly on impact.

Josie suffered from 2 broken legs, 2 broken arms, a broken eye socket and jaw and severe brain damage to her frontal and temporal lobes. 14 years previously Josie and her Mum where in a car accident where her Mum Kath, went into a coma and came out with brain damage and physically disabled, for this to happen twice in a life time to extreme consequences is unreal. To deal with the emotional and physical consequences, Josie would like, for part of her recovery, to take The Journey Practitioner Program (http://www.thejourney.com/about-us/) which will take her on her own personal journey of healing and at the end she will then be able to become a Journey practitioner & help support others in their own healing.

Last April so many of you came together and helped us raise 725€ towards Caisie’s memorial tree which is planted on ‘The Level’ in Brighton, a favourite place for Caisie and her friends to meet and now somewhere where they can go and connect with her spiritually.

Entonces!!! I’m asking all you kind people to again pull together to book appointments and for volunteer therapists to come forward & volunteer your services.

Appointments will be taken for: Reiki, Massage, Reflexology, Natural Healing, Indian Head Massage and more things to follow.

And Hopefully Josie may be able to join us & help us on the day.

Friday 20th June 10am-4pm

Muchisimo Gracias.

Yoga & Dying

We lost a dear Yoga student 2 days ago, Val was not afraid to go, she knew there was more waiting for her, our deepest condolences go to her family during this sad time for them. Xx

 

“If I was to die right now would I be unafraid and ready to let go.” 

There’s so much life for me still to live, so much I still want. I’m more afraid of the ones I love dying. But the truth is you never know how long you have in this beautiful life.

I could die tomorrow. I could die tonight. How tragic would it be if I died not living fully & completely.

Life has a fleeting and transient nature, but our minds and spirits operate as if they’ll go on forever. We have a sense of awareness that feels untouchable. The greatest gift my yoga practice has given me is the sense of comfort I’m beginning to feel in this body.

Comfort in knowing the physical body is not my identity that it will change, that it will die one day. Comfort in knowing that, while horrific and tragic things happen in the world every day, and that sadness will come and go in my life, I have this thread of awareness to keep me bound. So much more to life and living and who we are than these bodies and the experiences we have in them. 

I’m not religious, but I’m spiritual. The guidance of my teachers and my yoga practice has given me a safe space to live within my own mind and body. I may have found open hips and a strong core through my asana practice, but my true yoga practice has led me to discover something invaluable.

I’ve established a safe space in which to live fully in each moment, with every ounce of me, each day with passion and purpose .We will all die one day.

We are here on this divine planet for a short time. We don’t have the time to be surrounded by people who drag us down, doing activities that stifle our souls.

We must live now, because you don’t know if you have tomorrow. 

Om Shanti ॐ
