Programme

Gather on Thursday between 4-5pm to settle in. Dinner at 6pm followed by an outdoor fire with a sharing circle to introduce ourselves and share our intentions for the weekend. Early night on Thursday for an early morning rise at 5am for Aquarian sadhana finishing up with an hour of introspective mantras (live music on harmonium and guitar). After sadhana there is a space for silence. Attendees are invited to go within, do some journaling, read, have a walk around or have a nap. Anything that will nourish you. 

Breakfast at 9:30am followed by a "check-in" circle. After the circle we shall do a meditation to connect to our ancestors as a base to our evening programme. Before lunch we shall dive deep into Resolution Journey with Jonny O'Donnell. After lunch around 1:30pm you will have time to digest before going for a walk to the river where we will explore the Wim Hof method and submerge in the river and allow the waters to cleanse our bodies and souls. Please note this is an optional activity (such as any other), although highly recommended, for its invigorating and cleansing effects that have gathered worldwide interest.  Dinner is served at 5pm so we have time to digest before cacao ceremony. 

The cacao ceremony follows a tradition from South American Indians where we use raw 100% cacao in ceremonial dose to connect to our hearts. Cacao has a stimulating effect and is safe to use. After cacao ceremony we shall go deep into shamanic journey to the Underworld where we will connect with our Spirit Guide or Spirit Guides. After the ritual we shall dance with our newly discovered friend (blindfold dance). The evening will finish with a fire outdoors and some live music (bring instruments!).

On Sunday we shall have a little lie-in to replenish energy and do yoga together. After breakfast there will be another check-in circle followed by Inipi ritual with Joe (sweat lodge). In the evening we will use bows and arrows to manifest our goals with a meditative archery session. There will be a couple of bows and arrows for you to try out. If you have your own bow and arrows you are welcome to bring them. Free Saturday with outdoor fire.

Sunday morning yoga together exploring more techniques from kundalini yoga.

After lunch there will be time for you to relax before gathering around 3pm for a final Gong bath for total relaxation. Gong bath is excellent for rejuvenating before your journey home.
