About This Event
Awaken your senses through this experiential retreat, The Seat of the Soul: An elemental practice of presence. Over seven days, our journey will access the gateways of presence using yoga, breathwork, meditation and intrinsic movement. Allow the elements of this beautiful location in Chacala, Mexico, to stir the earth, water, fire, air and ether both within our bodies and all around us. This retreat is a fine blend of spiritual and somatic discovery that can reveal a place which is often called the seat of the soul, that point where our inner and outer experience meet.
Each day will begin with the ritual of movement and stillness, to anchor us in the tone of presence. Other activities such as hiking, swimming, dancing and fire ceremony will delve us deeper into synchronization with the biorhythms of nature. What might we find in the stirring of our watery hearts? Is our path determined by the flame of desire or the tread of connection from sole to earth? Together, we’ll explore these questions and so many more.
The Seat of the Soul is available to all levels of practitioners. This retreat will meet you exactly where you are as a supportive foundation to break through limiting beliefs, to intimately experience the mind-body connection and to provide tools to harness the most powerful portal in all experience: the power of the present moment.“The Seat of the Soul retreat was truly amazing. Mar de Jade is a magical coastal paradise-an ideal setting for a week of rest and relaxation. Mar de Jade’s setting combined with the creative, informed and empowering teachings of Asiana and Christine, allowed me to relax mind, body and soul."
Introduction and practice of Neurosculpting® Yoga, the whole-brain approach to rewriting old stories, ones which block us from activating our highest potential.

Enjoy a blindfold yoga asana practice to re-inform proprioceptive awareness of the body and soul.

Would highly recommend Bella retreats. Everything was planned perfectly! Hotels were amazing! Excursions (especially Balos beach) were incredible. Would love to take this trip again!

I can't speak highly enough of Adam and Una as a team. They are experts in their fields and lead by inspiring guests to relax, have fun and learn Astrology. I'm grateful getting to know so many like-mind like-spirit folk who truly enjoy sharing and being there for one another. I look forward to the next Astrology retreat in Hawaii January 2019. Thanks Bella Retreats!

The retreat in Tulum was truly amazing. I expected to just do yoga but instead I had a very powerful soul opening experience. The issue with the bugs in the bed helped me realize that in life we sometimes have things that suck our life and love light, it is okay to be uncomfortable and to also change the environment you are in. I know how much comfort and safety are truly important to me. I also was able to asses a lot of internal issues I have from past childhood traumas. I came out with an understanding that we fears that we can address. We all need healing and we all need love. Realizing how broken I am but also knowing that my experiences have made me a more empathetic and compassionate person that I can see the pain and struggle in others without being judgemental and by accepting these things in myself allow me to accept the beautiful flaws in others as well. Through the tears and the laughter I was able to find myself again the beautiful person whom I buried to avoid getting hurt. The most important is self love that I feel I have neglected myself throughout much of my life. The healing sound session was amazing and I felt that the healers were able to open my soul and heart to be able to see what it truly is that is holding me back to be the best person I can possibly be. I am truly grateful and thankful to be able to share my experience even though some of it was quite painful. I feel I came home a better and more open person to be able to continue my path in healing and walk in light and love. I am eternally grateful. The classes with Shigecko were amazing, heart opening and healing. The activities and writing has gotten my to start writing again as well. I love all of the people I was able to experience this with. Love and light. Morgan

The Seat of the Soul Yoga retreat in Chacala, MX was outstanding! Mar de Jade is a wonderful location and quite frankly, magical! The connection I felt to the world around me was breathtaking. I can honestly say I was able to live in the moment for most of my entire experience while there! What a perfect group of people to share the experience! The food was fresh, healthy, farm to table perfection! The daily yoga practice, journaling, group activities were done in such an open and trustful way.. everyone was honored and felt welcome! I can't wait for next time!

This retreat was hosted by Una & Patrick. It was an excellent way to structure the year ahead with goal setting via journaling, meditation and group work. The setting at Bodhi Tree was perfect offering daily yoga and delicious healthy food and jucices/smoothies. I was also able to connect with an inspiring group of people who I look forward to seeing again!

I am still on a high from this Astrology retreat. I truly had no idea that being around so many like-mind like-spirit souls could effect me the way this retreat did. Una and Adam are true inspirations and it was evident in the people that attended. The love and light that transpired will stay with me forever. I am very much looking forward to the next one, and many more retreats with Bella. All I can say is thank you thank you thank you!

I love astrology, yoga, mountains, hot springs, so I had high expectations for this retreat. Una and Adam surpassed every one. On an administrative level, everything ran smoothly and professionally... Una has that rare combination of incredible competence -and- warmth. I felt so welcome and taken care of. Adam is a powerful thinker and communicator. The astrology circles were always rich and layered-- encouraging thinking that reverberates long after the initial discussion. (Side note: I come from an academic background, and if grad conferences were like this, universities would be...healthier places.) One thing I didn't expect was to walk away from the weekend with such instantly precious friendships. Adam and Una cultivated a space where I felt safe and open--that's not easy. They're a special duo, and I'm counting down the days until the next one.

It was wonderful to sit under the Astrology tree amongst other beautiful souls and share our deep stories and feelings. Thank you Una for being such a loving and caring person and for being there for us. I would love the next retreat to be a bit longer. Can't wait :)

I attended my first ever astrology retreat and it surpassed any expectations I had. I went into this retreat feeling pretty nervous about meeting a bunch of people I had never met in person before and I can be quite shy at first... so this was on my mind. What happened instead, was a meeting of like-minded beautiful souls that were vibrating on a similar loving frequency that deep bonds and friendships formed in a very short amount of time. To me, it feels like a divine meeting took place and set in motion something much bigger than I can even fathom. Una and Adam created a lovely container that blended mindful practices, authentic and transparent interactions, fun and soulful connections, and yummy nourishment on a sacred piece of land, fully integrating the vibe and flavor of the retreat. I will definitely be attending future retreats thrown by Adam and Una.

I can't say enough about how absolutely fabulous this retreat was! Everything, everything was wonderful. Katherine Jane's knowledge is out of this world, and she is so entertaining to be with. Her partner Piyush Kumar is the quintessential Indian host and adds much to the discussions on world philosophy, religion, the Indian culture, and other fascinating topics. And Dunagiri itself? You really have to be there to experience it as there are no words to express how transcendent the environment is. Visiting shrines to Ma and hiking to lookout ridges for views of the distant Himalayas are only two things that will blow you away. The food, water, accommodations, drivers... all so excellent and accommodating. It was truly a wonderful experience that will stay with me forever. And oh! How could I forget to mention the Majaraj, the sweetest and most endearing baba who lives with anyone who resides there. His stories are incredible. I could go on and on.... Chanting, yoga, ritual... Love...
