Nature getaway in stunning Polish lake district.We are delighted to welcome you to a journey into self-discovery and reconnection with your inner wisdom in incredibly beautiful lake region of Poland. Supported and nourished by surrounding nature, take time out to rest, relax, gain new energy for upcoming seasons, retreat your body, mind, and spirit.The retreat is focused on exploring 5 elements (air, earth, fire, water and spirit) and seeing how we and our everyday lives relate to them. How we can awaken and harmonise these elements inside us and outside us. By connecting to the rhythms of nature we will embrace the change of seasons and beginning of autumn. As September marks the harvesting season, theend of growing, we are invited to be turning inward, learn more about ourselves. Just like old leaves change colour and drop, we’re leaving behind what doesn’t serve us anymore providing the space for what is most important in our lives to emerge. There will be time and space for self - reflection and journaling, so we can feel and reflect on what we have experienced, learnt, done and see what lies ahead of us.
We will explore the connection with ourselves, our elemental patterns and potential through:
- Somatic Movement
- 5 Elements Dance Activation™
- Dynamic meditation practices
- Voice work
- Nature walks
- Nature inspired mindfulness practices
Dance and movement are both powerful natural tools which bring us back to our bodies and allow us explore them in new ways. They will assist us to unwind the effects of the past, so we can become more spacious and ready to receive the gifts that the life and the Earth has to offer.
Reconnecting with the nature that we are and nature that nurtures, supports and heals us is an essential part of the retreat. There will be plenty of space for nature walks, lake swims and bonfires, healthy plant-based food, balanced time for solitude and group activities.
You will go back home go home inspired, nurtured and fulfilled with the wisdom of your own body in stillness and in motion. And most importantly you will go home feeling more connected to yourself, the nature, its rhythms and cycles, the beauty that surrounds you every day and a privilege to make the Earth a better place for all starting with yourself, right here, right now.
