About this retreat:
This week-long retreat is held on Andros, also known as“La Isla del Espirito Santo,” the Island of the Holy Spirit. Included in our time together will be yoga, meditation, sacred circle gathering, exploring and expanding creativity, island excursions and plenty of free time to raise your vibration and connect with your soul's calling. Our theme this year is “Effortless Creativity – Awaken Your Creative Spirit.” We will be looking at our life as our canvas and discover how we can create the life we desire.You ARE the ARTIST of your life!
Each participant will receive a coupon for bodywork (massage,
essential oil therapy or energy balancing). We will also have ample opportunity to soak up the healing energy of the island, spending quiet reflection
time, building relationships (with our own selves and others), exploring
nature, journaling, and exploring opportunities to engage in cultural events
and activities conducted by local Bahamians. We will begin and
end each day with a sacred circle.
“I like to dance with whatever rhythm life proposes to me.”
