About the retreat
This retreat is intended to provide release from negative behavioural patterns and negative emotions which may have manifested on a physical level, as cysts, tumours, fibroids, endometriosis, digestion and weight management problems. And on an emotional level, as fear, possessiveness, jealousy, lack of trust, sadness and depression.
All negative emotions and behaviours affect our health, moods and general wellbeing adversely.
Obsidian is a type of volcanic rock. It forms when volcanic lava comes into contact with water, cooling it very quickly into a shiny stone. Black Obsidian stimulates growth on all levels, bringing about mental clarity. It is an extremely powerful and fast acting stone which enables the release of emotions, such as, hatred, anger and sadness, which cloud our minds and hearts.
Obsidian absorbs any dense energy in our sexual organs which may have manifested as tumours, endometriosis, cysts, painful and unsatisfied sexual relationships.
Obsidian is associated with our base chakra, the mulhadhara. This chakra is responsible for our feelings of security and survival; it facilitates the elimination of waste and toxins from our bodies and mind. When this chakra is in balance we have a healthy self-image, feel grounded, secure, stable and have healthy relationships; we are able to let go of the past or what is no longer working in our lives.
An unbalanced base chakra manifests as paranoia, insecurity, fear, jealousy, possessiveness and holding onto unhealthy thoughts and feelings, living in the past, digestive and weight problems and feeling as though life is a burden.
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), sound (naad) 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 clearing blockages of stagnant energy and returning the mind, body and spirit back to being healthy.
