"Transforming Cellular Memory Retreat" with Cathy Pearson in Thailand

Event Highlights

  • You will learn how to take better charge of your energy. This work supports all other modalities including yoga, meditation, tantra practices, martial arts and many more. You will unlearn a lot too! Every year we bring together a beautiful group of willing people to support each other on a deep journey beyond the mind and into pure feeling and aliveness. Nature is a greta teacher so cathy has chosen this stunning tropical beach location, Had Tien on Koh Phangan. There are no roads, just jungle paths and the sound of the sea. Wake up each morning to the sun rising and the sound of the jungle. At night time you will be under a canopy of stars and see the silver moon light light up the palm trees as you walk home to your bungalow. The tuition fees only are payable on this retreat as accommodation costs and availability are vast, leaving you to choose your own price range. Book both training and accommodation direct with the sanctuary asap as its can get busy, this is a popular destination in January.


On the 20th Jan we will begin the retreat at 3-6pm.
21st -24th Jan 10am-1pm lunch and free time and then 3-6pm

About This Event

In this retreat you will enter a magical and powerful process of deep purification. I work with a transmission of Energy or Light, that comes from the heart of the Universe. When we evoke this Light in our circle it begins to work on each individual and the group at large both independently and simultaneously. Unlocking our bodies from anxiety, fear based belief systems, cultural conditioning, sexual & non-sexual trauma, abuse, unconscious behavior & thought patterns & much more. We absorb a lot from our family & country of origin. This can remain unconscious for many throughout an entire lifetime as we really do not know all that the body holds until we have felt it let go and transform. 

The purpose of this work is always to get back to love. Realise our true nature as beings made of love and to feel the deepest connection with Spirit. After working in this way for some time and with commitment, our deepest purpose is revealed to us and our lives get more “on track”. This is a process of sacred alignment for serious spiritual seekers and practitioners.

I truly believe at the heart of all deep work is laughter and fun. Joy is our birthright and anything shrouding that must be and will be transformed. This work can be a lot of fun; maintaining a sense of humor is the quickest way to unlock Truth. 

This process will support and deepen any practice, from healing, yoga, energy work, parenting, relationships and more. 

About the Venue: "A Delicious Haven" The Guardian UK, "Brilliant, Quirky, Unique..." Time Out Magazine UK "Truly Magical" The Times London- About Cathy Pearson "I’ve been working with Cathy regularly since my cancer diagnosis and treatments. Cathy has a unique ability to bring forth a healing energy of ‘light’ from our creative source, one that she has mastered over many years of doing this work cleaning out her own ‘closet’ so to speak and integrating more of this “light” into her being. After a session with Cathy I always feel more alive, more energy, more positive, more aligned, more focused more able to cope with anything that might be thrown at me, and Cancer is a pretty big one that I am dealing with and healing now! I am so grateful to Cathy for facilitating this fundamental process to expansion, light living and higher consciousness." Carly Reeves, Essex UK

Getting to Paradise

By Plane:
The most direct way to get Ko Phangan is to fly from Bangkok to Koh Samui Island with Bangkok Air. Thai Air also flies to Koh Samui so check out their offers too. Note that Bangkok Air has a very flexible ‘change your ticket’ policy and they have 20 flights a day to and from the islands.

By Boat:
Koh Phangan island is easily accessible by boat from several places in southern Thailand. Most boats arrive on Koh Phangan at one of two towns, Thong Sala or Haad Rin. If your boat lands in Thong Sala, go to Haad Rin town via taxi truck (20 minutes, 100 baht per person), where you can get a car taxi, or boat taxi, to Haad Tien, home of the Sanctuary.

From Koh Samui:
The easiest way to get to The Sanctuary, between mid April to late October, is on the Thong Nai Pan ferry boat. This ferry departs from Mae Nam town (not the pier) on Koh Samui every day at 12 noon and brings you directly to Haad Tien (get off at the second stop Haad Tien). The journey is approx one hour.
Mae Nam is about 45 minutes by taxi from Samui Airport.

Please note however that if the waves are big this boat doesn’t run.
There are also 4 ferry boats a day from Big Buddha Pier in Samui to Haad Rin (make sure it is the correct pier for the HAAD RIN QUEEN FERRY, as there are 2 Big Buddha Piers)

10:30 • 13:00 • 16:00 • 18:30

This ferry takes about 50 minutes, and it runs in all weathers!
Big Buddha Pier is about 15 minutes drive by taxi from Samui Airport.

When you arrive in Haad Rin on Koh Phangan, there will be taxi boat drivers waiting for customers bound for Haad Tien. Please note that if the waves are high or there are few customers, the boat drivers may charge a higher price.
If the waves are too high for boat travel, there will be a taxi jeep waiting. This journey is quite an adventure! It takes about 40 minutes over mostly rough jungle track.
Both the taxi truck and the taxi boat journeys cost around 500 bt per person – in calm seas.

If you wish to have a private charter speedboat to whiz you off to paradise this can also be organized (6,000B to 6,500B depending on weather and time). This gets you directly on to the beach less than an hour after you touch down at Koh Samui airport.

From the city of Surat Thani:

Many ferry companies offer boats directly to Koh Phangan, or via Koh Samui. The journey from Surat Thani/Donsak to Thong Sala takes around 2.5 hours. The boats land at Thong Sala town on Koh Phangan and you can to get a taxi truck to Haad Rin, where you can catch a boat taxi or taxi jeep to The Sanctuary.

From other parts of the island:

The easiest way to get to us is via Haad Rin, adn by taxi boat from there. If you are already on the East Coast of the island, the Thong Nai Pan ferry boat travels between Haad Tien and Thong Nai Pan/Than Sadet twice a day from March to October.

From Haad Rin:

Taxi boats leave from Sunrise beach in Haad Rin throughout the day – the taxi boat drivers will often ask you to wait for more customers to arrive.
To improve your chances of getting a boat quickly with other passengers, head to the ferry port when the boats from Koh Samui come in at 11.20am, 1.50pm, 4.50pm and 7.20pm. The ferry port is just 5 minutes walk from Sunrise Beach.

On Foot:

If the weather prevents the boats from running, or if you are feeling particularly energetic, we recommend the beautiful walk from Haad Rin to The Sanctuary. The walk starts at ‘Thai House Bungalow’ just up the street from ‘Yogurt Home Restaurant’ and brings you up through coconut palms and then on through secondary tropical rain-forest. Just follow the yellow/green dots on rocks and trees. Don’t forget to bring some water! Pay attention to the sights and sounds on the amazing walk. When you arrive in paradise at The Sanctuary we will be waiting to welcome you…

Returning Home:

For your departure, the ferries leave Haad Rin at 9.30am, 11.40am, 2.30pm and 5.30pm, and arrive at Koh Samui 50 minutes later. This means that for any flight out of Samui before midday, you will need to either spend your last night in Samui or travel by private speedboat.
