Aluna Healing invites you to join them on retreat in the Scottish Highlands. Cleanse and renew your body and spirit within a magical ancient landscape. You will be delving into a gentle yet profound healing journey, cleansing toxicity, reconnecting with your sacred essence, ancient wisdom, and the living Earth.
The venue is a set of newly refurbished cottages on an estate in one of the most majestic and beautiful areas in Britain. It is set within an area of ancient native woodland, beneath Torridon mountains on the edge of Loch Torridon. The estate has waterfalls and a river flowing through it, plenty of space to walk through the trees and down to the sea loch.
Accommodation is in shared twin or private (double) rooms. The cottages and rooms are clean and bright with lovely views. All buildings have newly renovated interiors with wooden floors, log fires, and are warm, light and comfortable. Outdoor hot tubs for bathing under the stars.
Classes are held in the group room in one of the cottages, which has also 3 guest rooms, and the other accommodations are in a cottage close by.
This is a unique, intensive, deep, and transformational retreat, a time to journey within, to cleanse, realign, and awaken a deeper connection with your Origins and Creation. The retreat program is full of practices for cultivating health, connection, and harmony with nature, along with yoga, meditation, breathwork, and sound healing.
The retreat is a journey through the Celtic medicine wheel, exploring the elements, seasons, cycles, and rhythms of Nature and passages through life. You will work with awakening the sacred witness, cultivating inner stillness, your natural rhythms and cycles, healing herbs, plants and foods, the remembrance of Mother Earth as a living being, and your place within Creation. You will be picking up threads of wisdom that have been left by our ancestors, and reflecting on the footprints that you each wish to leave behind you for the generations to come.
The retreat offers a space to cleanse and quieten body and mind, so that one may listen and attune to the wisdom within you; that you may flow once again with the streams of wisdom that are the original essence of the natural world.
In this modern world, many of you have become fragmented and disconnected from what once was inherent - your 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, your attention has become distracted and diverted away from the purity and light that has its home within all of life. There is a restlessness that manifests in the soul when it is un-nurtured, and when we are not living in your true purpose and authenticity, in a 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.
You are a part of this Earth and you are all connected. You have as humanity, collectively co-created the world, and if you see the world as a mirror, you come to recognize that there is much work for each of you to do to restore the beauty and purity of life.
The 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 energized 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 you 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.
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 awaken, 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 (breathwork), 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
The retreats are intended as a space for inner healing and sacred re-connection. To support this, Aluna Healing requests that participants come with an open heart and mind, refrain from judgment, and respect other people's quiet space. The retreats are a joyful, warm-hearted space where you laugh, share, inspire one another, and there will also be times when you will sit or walk in silence. This practice of times of inner and outer silence allows for deeper connection, as you practice mindfulness and allow yourself to be present, quiet, and to deeply listen.
In the world today, you 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 become more visible in the world, many of you are awakening and feel called to return to ways of living that are in harmony with nature, and with what creates and sustains health.
The wisdom keepers tell you 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. Your bodies have the natural capacity to cleanse and heal themselves, though when overloaded or lacking vital nourishment, it can become stagnated and toxins build up in the system.
The experiences of your 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.
