  • Play and healing touch
  • Ritual and ceremony
  • Meditation and visualization
  • Sharing and partner exercises

Schedule

We set the container so that you don’t have to think, plan or worry about anything. You are invited to flow and engage in the activities exactly as you are. This is a space where you get a chance to take a break from the habitual mode of engaging with life and time. Of course there’ll also be plenty of time for reflection, relaxation by the pool and naps in the shade. We will be introducing a vast range of activities connected to embodiment, nature connection, ritual and inner work.

A typical daily schedule looks like this:
8am: Morning practice
9am: Breakfast
11am: Group activity
2pm: Lunch

About This Event

A 5-day retreat for women, June 7 – 13, 2020

We invite you to join us for five days of sacred sisterhood in the mountains of Spain; a deep dive into stillness and sensuality, movement and connection, pleasure and nourishment, ritual and devotion as we open ourselves to the deepest truth of who we are; Radiant. Whole. Powerful. An embodiment of light.

The Invitation: To live our essence, to transmit and express the unique capacities we embody in this life, is to surrender to what we are; to remove all obstacles to the sacred song that is ours to sing.

It is to do the muddy work of descending into our depths and uprooting outdated belief systems, healing old wounds, integrating rejected parts of ourselves and welcoming all the rage and grief and pain that accompanies this initiation into the art of conscious becoming. And simultaneously it is the sweet and tender and wildly joyful ascent into the light, into devotion – into love in all its expressions; through the body, through words and song and stillness.

It is the playful dance of balancing the feminine movement of down and in and the masculine movement of up and out. Darkness must be balanced by light; shadow by radiance; grief by joy. These times call more than ever for the courage to find out, finally, what it truly means to be human and divine.

What You Can Expect:

Deep and authentic sisterhood with like-minded women

A place where the feminine is honored

Devotional practices that connect you to the divine

A time to re-integrate ritual as a practice

The space to sink into deeper presence with yourself

Daily practices that nourish body, mind and spirit

A place to surrender, to be vulnerable, to let go

Deep connection to wild nature

A relaxing, nourishing time to come home to yourself

It will be a small group to ensure an intimate container – only 12 spots are available so contact us if this calls to you.

Venue Highlights

It all takes place in a secluded sanctuary between rugged Spanish mountains surrounded by olive groves, where the sun caresses the meadow as dusk falls, where the stars fill the sky and the sound of frogs echoes in the still night air.

In a unique setting made for a time out of the ordinary with quiet nooks, hammocks, swimming pool, a practice shala overlooking the valley and meals made with love, we hold the space for the Inner Light Retreat.

Our venue is located between Valencia and Alicante, nestled in the mountains near the small town of Orba. Located in peaceful countryside with views of mountains, valley and the sea, the space is ideal for stillness and deep connection. We have on our doorstep two spectacular walks: one down into “Hells Gorge” and the other up onto the “Green Horse Mountain.”

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

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.
