About the retreat
Re-assess, recover, restore, rejuvenate and reconnect in the tranquil and breath taking landscape of the beautiful mountains of Alhama de Granada, Spain and take the first step to transform your life. An inspirational women’s retreat bringing together a powerful blend of obsidian, kundalini yoga and meditation in the natural healing surroundings of the mountains, waterfalls and caves.
Discover what it is that prevents you from living a life to its’ full potential without regret. To have the confidence and freedom to live from the heart and laugh in the face of self-doubt. To feel empowered to challenge and release old and unhelpful patterns of behaviour, which prevent you from living a fulfilling and joyful life.
Our old patterns are sometimes so deeply engraved into our being that we may not even realise how they impact our everyday life. In fact, some cultures believe we may even carry patterns from previous lifetimes. Consciously or unconsciously we continue to drag our past into our future and allow it to define us and influence our physical and mental wellbeing. Unchecked over a period of time these patterns can cause physical and mental manifestations such as cysts, tumours, fibroids, endometriosis, menstrual problems, infertility, gastro intestinal disease, weight gain/loss, diabetes, lack of vitality, motivation and energy, depression, fear, greed, possessiveness, jealousy, sexual dysfunction, distrust and problems letting go. In fact, most physical and mental ill health is caused by our past actions and patterns of behaviour.

- Awaken you to yourself and to help you live in the present moment
- Release deep rooted patterns held in the conscious and subconscious self
- Heal and restore physical and emotional health and wellbeing

The program will use a powerful blend of obsidian therapy, kundalini yoga, ancient mantras, meditation and traditional healing techniques of the Cherokee Indian community of America, along with the most current and innovative research in natural therapies, such as, quantum vibration therapy.
The black obsidian, often called the stone of truth is an extremely powerful and fast acting stone which reveals the darkness that blocks the light and enables the release of negative emotions which cloud our minds and hearts. The obsidian has been used for centuries by shamans and healers to clear energetic blockages and restore health and wellbeing.
Kundalini yoga, known as the mother of all yogas, due to it’s completeness of practice is a potent form of yoga which facilitates self-transformation and healing through the practice of breathing (pranayama), yoga sequences (asanas), mantra and meditation. The kundalini is the untapped energy store which resides at the base of the spine. This energy when awakened travels upwards through the chakras (energy centres) clearing blockages of stagnant energy which hold the pain and suffering of our life story.
The retreat will also include the following:
- Detoxification of the mind and body
- Guided meditations and relaxation
- Shamanic ceremony
- Nature walks in the National Park
- Visits to caves and waterfalls
- Techniques of Native American traditions
- Therapy with tuning forks for quantum vibration therapy
- Songs, music and a journey of self-discovery
- Qi Gong and Tai Qi exercises
- Opportunity to share, connect and heal within the circle of women
- Delicious wholesome home cooked food
