About us

‘AWAKEN’ is a retreat we carefully designed to provide a unique integration of methods and experiences that can support your intention to live with an awakened mind, relaxed body and a more open-hearted life.

In addition to sessions in modern approaches to mindfulness, we have incorporated daily Yoga and mindful movement, ancient fire ceremonies for acceptance and letting go, daily trips to sacred location on the island, delicious vegetarian meals and holistic treatments.

This retreat will equip you with the skills you need to be fully present and at peace with yourself in your day to day life. When you awaken, illusions and fantasies are brought to surface, vulnerabilities and fears are transformed, you let go of the past and escape the trap of time and truly live in the now.

The beautiful setting of the island of Gozo provides a peaceful and unspoilt backdrop for this six night retreat. This island is known for supporting people seeking deeper personal transformation.

Why Yoga?
Our daily Yoga classes will be based on traditional Hatha Yoga. Yoga provides excellent tools to enhance our sense of embodiment and presence in the here and now. The sessions are led in the spirit of nurturing and respecting our limits rather than striving or competition. The sessions are suitable for all, whatever your level of experience in Yoga.

 
You will be introduced to:

  • Yogic breathing techniques to calm the mind, promote clarity of thought and reduce stress and anxiety
  • Pranayama, which is said to purify the blood and respiratory systems and impart radiance to the body
  • Yoga poses (asana), which promote balance, strength and flexibility
  • Mantras to deepen clarity of mind and enhance inner tranquility

 

Why Mindfulness?
Through different mindfulness and self-compassion practices you will experience first-hand the impact that developing awareness can have on your mind and body. You will be introduced to a range of skills to help you be more embodied, calm and responsive and less controlled by worry or constant mental chatter. You will learn new tools to help you build your resilience to physical and emotional pain, whether expressed through anxiety, stress or depression

What you will learn:

  • Practice mindfulness and meditation formally and in your daily life
  • Handle emotions and challenging situations with greater ease
  • Be more connected to yourself and the world around you
  • Support yourself at times of difficulty or failure
  • Take steps towards appreciating yourself
  • Be less judgmental of yourself and others
  • To notice small beauties and pleasures in the world around you instead of living in your head
  • To be kind to yourself instead of wishing things were different all the time, or driving yourself to meet impossible goals

Location

This retreat will take place in the middle of the Mediterranean sea on the island of Gozo in the village of Xaghra. Gozo, which means 'joy', is a little spit of land sitting in the Mediterranean Sea with unique rocky coastal landscape, waters so crystal-clear and the sky so bright blue that you’ll have to rub your eyes to believe what you are seeing. Gozo is the second largest island of the Maltese Archipelago and is an ideal destination for those who treasure a slow, relaxed rhythm of life and cherish unspoilt countryside and being close to the sea. Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside. The beauty of surrounding nature all around create an ambience of complete peace.

  • 120 min of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Nui massage – at €95 – please book your space at the time of reserving your place.
