All meals will begin with a communal prayer to Our Divine Mother and blessing of food. Mornings following breakfast will include one lecture / discussion / information session and/or one breathing / meditation / other practice / nature walk followed by free time. After a shared lunch we'll have another lecture / discussion / information session and/or one additional practice session / nature walk followed by more free time before dinner.

Attlas Allux will be avail himself to answer any questions on any overnight practices which participants may have.

About This Event

Discover the Essence of Gnosis this Christmas & New Year's amidst the coastal mountains of Valencia, Spain. This 2-week retreat teaches must-know Gnostic concepts, practices & secrets so YOU can "bear gifts for your newborn INNER Christ."


It will not simply be a rehash of information you may have read in books, or been exposed to via online lectures. Attlas Allux's mission is to deliver the living, breathing Word of the Logos as appropriate to humanity in this time, which means focusing on unveiling contemporary stories and mythologies, telling new parables, and most importantly delivering the teachings such that they are the most accessible, practical and usable possible. This is the Essence of Gnosis: experiential knowledge; applicable to your life and by extension the lives of all those whom you affect. Expect to hear never-before expressed Truths, as all lectures will be 100% unscripted. Don't be surprised to see Attlas himself surprised by what Allux speaks through him in the moment.


Our focus is to help you connect with your own Innermost Intimate Being (the Seed) the Christ-child who must be born among the manger of your animal mind. This means holding an INTIMATE RETREAT, similar to the nativity scene itself, with very few witnesses in attendance to experience this magical and sacred time of year when the birth of our Innermost Lord can take place. In other words, there will be NO MORE THAN 20 PARTICIPANTS (including facilitators and staff). The first few hours will be spent LISTENING. This is a very different approach than other Gnostic retreats you may have experienced (it's certainly different than the retreats we have experienced). Whether you come as a single or together as a couple, our approach will be to allow the Christ to flow into, around, and through the retreat according to the needs of participants: including dynamically changing plans, topics, practices (within reason) according to level, interests, longings and consensus of the group. Also, we know the power of the following statement: tell me and I will forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I will understand. An intimate and interactive workshop atmosphere will be adopted whenever possible and appropriate. If you feel the Being-Impulse to share something your Innermost Intimate wishes to contribute, we'd like you to feel comfortable contributing for the benefit of everyone. Conversely, if you feel the deep longing within to simply be present, remain quiet and be as a sponge absorbing all that is shared and done without making so much as a sound, we understand, respect, and will accommodate your wishes. No one need do anything which they are not prompted to do from within. This is as much your retreat as it is ours, and it is on that basis that we will together create a Space of Love in which to better ourselves for the sake of the end of suffering of all beings.

SEE Your World in a New Light; SEEK The Light of the World within. - Attlas Allux

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
