The retreat begins at 6 p.m. on Friday December 29, 2017 and completes at 12 p.m. on Thursday January 4, 2018. The focus of this retreat will be cleansing and replenishing the light within - a time to reflect on the year passed, purify and renew yourself in health and harmony so that you may resonate into the new year as a healthy cell of the living body of Mother Earth.
The retreat is held within a nurturing space in a beautiful manor house on Dartmoor National Park; surrounded by forest, ancient rock, vast, mystical landscapes and ancient sacred sites.
These retreats are intended for people who wish to work on themselves, to purify, and connect with a living spiritual practice. The essence of the retreat is an exploration of ancient wisdom in the context of where we stand in this moment in time, as well as being a space to cleanse and renew through juice fasting and detoxification.
It is seen that in order to bring change and transformation to our world, that all healing must begin within, with self. The retreat offers a space to cleanse and quieten body and mind, so that one may begin to listen to the clear voice within and again come to flow with the streams of wisdom that are the original essence of the natural world.
The retreat days are woven with a blend of practices, classes, sharing, rest and nourishment. This retreat is also unique in that it is a juice fast, with fresh vegetable juices and cleansing drinks throughout the day, with optional extras for cleansing the liver and gallbladder or kidneys and adrenals.
Daniela says: "In this modern world, many of us have become fragmented and disconnected from what once was inherent – our original, sacred essence and relationship with the Earth as the Mother from which all life is born."
"In the fast-paced world of technology and materialism, our attention has become distracted and diverted away from the purity and light that has its home within all of life. There is restlessness that manifests in the soul when it is un-nurtured, and when we are not living in our true purpose and authenticity, in sacred relationship with life. This can be seen now all over the world - both individually and collectively - as one is a mirror of the other."
"We are a part of this Earth and we are all connected. We have as humanity, collectively co-created our world, and if we see the world as a mirror, we come to recognize that there is much work for us each to do to restore the beauty and purity of life."
These retreats are spaces created for you to step out of everyday life, to quieten the mind, cleanse and renew the body, so that it is easier to enter into deeper inquiries and internal processes. You will learn practices and tools to help you identify and move beyond disharmonious patterns and tendencies, reflect on ways that you may have created or energise negativity in your life, and experience ways of living that elevate your mind, open your heart, and create a vibratory field of resonance from within.
"The retreat includes a session of yoga in the mornings, meditation and internal practices in the evenings, a detoxification and cleansing program of fresh juices and smoothies; sacred journeys, time in Nature; periods in silence, inner reflection and contemplation; talks on diet and healing; group sharing circles; personal support. It is the intent that each day, you will deepen in your practice and internal awareness, learning to listen, feel and connect with the light within, and the living light of the Earth."
In each moment, do you choose Fear or Love? What is your sacred contribution to this world? What will you leave behind you for the next generations? "Let us be the ancestors our descendants will thank." - Winona La Duke
Yoga is a path of the heart, that leads us into Being. Daniela shares her practice of yoga, weaving aspects of Hatha, Scaravelli, Kundalini, Kriya and Tibetan traditions. Her yoga teaching also draws upon many years of working with energetic practices and the healing arts and spending time in silent retreat in Nature.
Daniela says: "This approach to yoga is a journey of unfolding, through turning your attention inwards. Through this deep and reflective practice, your natural sensitivity and self awareness awakens, clearing toxicity and tension, freeing energy and space from inside, outwards."
"Yoga activates the body's own intelligence and innate healing abilities, encouraging the natural unfolding of healthy posture, a fluid, supple body, expansion of breath, and the opening of the heart to touch the soul and reconnect with our Essence."
"The practice will include working with breath (life-force), asana (postures), kriyas (sequences), pranayama (breath work), meditation (stillness) and sacred reciprocity (harmony)."
"The retreat is open to experienced practitioners, as well as those with little experience or prior interest in yoga, as all practices are adjustable to meet all abilities. Yoga is not about what you can or can't 'do'.. but about meeting yourself as you are."
"Silence is essential for deep transformation. It allows the practice of conscious breathing to become deep and effective. Like still water that reflects things as they are, the calming silence helps us to see things more clearly, and therefore, to be in deeper contact with ourselves and those around us." - Thich Nhat Hanh
Daniela says: "Our retreats are intended as a space for inner healing and sacred re-connection. To support this, we request that participants come wiht an open heart and mind, refrian from judgement and 'social chit-chat' and respect other peoples quiet space. The retreats are a joyful, warm hearted space, and within this there will be times when we will sit, walk or eat/drink in silence."
"This practice of times of inner and outer silence allows for deeper connection, as we let go of our insecurities and allow ourselves to simply be present, connected in the heart. By learning to center ourselves in feeling before we speak, we can create clarity of mind and heart, and harmony in our inner and outer relationships."
"In the world today we are faced with the challenge of living clean and pure on a planet that has become toxic in many ways . Yet as the destruction and shadow becomes more visible in the world, many of us are awakening and feel called to return to ways of living that are in harmony with nature, and with what creates and sustains health."
"Our wisdom keepers tell us that all toxicity begins in thought, word and action, and that it is through the incongruity of our actions with the laws of nature that we have created the toxicity in all its manifestations in the world."
"A build up of toxicity in the body can lead to oversensitivity to certain foods, weight gain, sluggishness, inflammation, pain, infections, ailments, disease, menstrual issues, loss of vitality and sense of wellbeing, foggy mind, low energy, and many other things. Our bodies have the natural capacity to cleanse and heal themselves, though when overloaded or lacking vital nourishment, can become stagnated and toxins build up in the system."
"The experiences of our life are all stored within our luminous energy body and our cells. During a detoxification process, as the physical body begins to purify and heal itself, layers of toxicity that have been stored within the muscles, tissues, bones and cells are brought to the surface to be cleared. Detoxification can help you to naturally release tension, stress, negative emotions and thoughts; creating clarity of mind and inspiration to walk forwards in your life.
"Everything in the universe is made of vibration, and vibrant, organic foods, Nature, creativity, prayer, purity of thought, beautiful music - for example - all help to lift and sustain our vibration in a state of health and resonance. As you detox your system and bring in pure foods, living water, light, purity and prana (life force energy), your vibration is lifted and you will begin to resonate at clearer, more refined frequencies, allowing more light to flow through you and be held within your cells."
"Detoxification helps the body to heal itself as nature intended; cleansing and repairing your beautiful body, helping to restore health, a sense of wellness and the true natural radiance of your inner being."
