About this event

An Emergence of Self - Awakening New Patterns

“Each breath is like a little rebirth, a renaissance that can only be celebrated if we recognize that it’s happening.”

– Cristen Rodgers

As pattern-oriented, habit-forming creatures, what would happen if we could simply change the aperture from which we experience our current circumstances, thoughts and moments?

This October, journey beneath the surface presentations of your thoughts and into the processes that exist behind them. Arrive into a spaciousness, where you’ll find freedom to recreate who you want to be and how you show up in the world. Through sensorial and mindful practices, we will explore ways to awaken new patterns and ways of being.

Set in an intimate, soothing enclave with calming nature-filled surrounds, our three-day soul-reviving retreat takes you right to the core of your being. With kindred spirits and an endless sea of flora and green for company, re-align, re-group and re-invigorate yourself with intentional, heart-centered practices, nourishing meals, and the profound magic that inner silence brings.

Emerge with greater clarity, resilience and healthier mindful practices, as you unfold a deeper connection with the Self.

Lodging and Retreat Space

The retreat will take place at a restored 100-year old black and white house located within Labrador’s lush nature reserve – Villa Samadhi. At every corner of this quiet enclave, you’ll find safe and nurturing spaces conducive for you to take the journey within. At the end of each day, recuperate within the comforts of your room located in this hidden sanctuary.

Food

Guest chefs on site will serve up a curation of nourishing recipes, using fresh, quality ingredients laden with nature’s goodness and sourced sustainably where possible, in tandem with the seasons.

Dates

24 – 26 October: Our retreat opens from 3PM on Sunday, 24 October 2021, and ends at 5.30PM on Tuesday, 26 October 2021.

About the Sessions

Embodied Movement

Embodied Movement specialises in the foundational, mindful understanding of body mechanics so that one can find the rhythm in all movements – deepening body awareness, connecting to feeling and developing an intelligent self-practice of conscious movement, leading one perfectly into stillness. The retreat sessions will centre around communicating with your body and mind through dynamic movements and breath practices to open, align and discover your centre.

Active Meditations

These are structured meditation methods that consciously bring the practitioner from the periphery to the centre of the storm – to that place of witnessing, where one can reside in awareness while all continues to exist around them. In this retreat, travel to the centre of our being through a variety of movement meditations that use music, movement and breath practices from Kundalini Meditation to a Sufi-inspired Meditation to a cathartic Dynamic Meditation, all leading to silent sitting.

A Day of Silence

For one day of the retreat, we will practice ‘mouna’, the art of maintaining silence. When we participate in somatic (body) experiences, particularly while holding a space of silence, often insights, reflections and memories will surface — all a part of our unfolding. Journaling and self-reflection sessions will allow you to sit with them and allow the process to unfold gently in your hands, knowing that these moments of taking pause are instrumental in connecting to your Self.

Myrtu Death Meditation

Myrtu (Death) is a profound, gentle meditation session on the art of letting go, non-attachment and witnessing consciousness. In this session, we will lie down and experience a metaphorical journey of connecting to our infinite consciousness as we de-identify with the impermanence of the body. This beautiful meditation is guided.

Interactive Journeys

We will create ceremonial spaces with opportunities to connect with one another and guided discussions to set and release intentions and consecrate transitions for starting and ending this profound process together. These sessions not only help to deepen our connection to one another, but also gently help to process a collective understanding and provide you with communicative tools for you to integrate and assimilate the retreat experience back into your daily life.

Shamanic Journeying

Shamanic Journeying is a practice of accessing the wisdom and guidance available within deeper aspects of the subconscious mind. It involves employing breathing techniques and rhythmic percussion, like drumming and rattling, to entrain the brainwave patterning to a Theta state. Once this altered state of consciousness is achieved, you’ll journey into the deep mind where answers to questions and directions for intentions are accessed.
