Program

Cleanse and renew yourself within a magical ancient landscape; delve into a gentle yet profound healing journey of cleansing toxicity & reconnecting with your sacred essence, ancient wisdom and the living Earth.

The retreat is set within Dartmoor’s mystical landscape, rich with forests, rivers, waterfalls, ancient sacred sites and stone circles. The retreat is a juice fast (or juice & salad cleanse) program, rich with practices for cultivating health, connection & harmony with Nature, along with yoga, meditation, breathwork & sound healing.

The retreat offers a safe and supportive space for a juice/liquid fast, and there is also an option of a gourmet salad lunch for those who are wishing for a gentler cleanse. Massage & healing sessions are available throughout the week with the skilled practitioners and full support throughout your journey.

The retreat program is a journey through the Celtic medicine wheel, exploring the elements, seasons, cycles & rhythms of Nature and passages through life. You will work with cultivating inner stillness, awakening your natural rhythms and cycles, working with healing herbs, plants & 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 your 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 us; that we may flow once again with the streams of wisdom that are the original essence of the natural world.

During the retreat, you will be fasting/cleansing with fresh vegetable juices and herbal drinks throughout the day, with optional extra detox programs for cleansing the liver and gallbladder. There is also an option of a gourmet salad lunch for those who are wishing for a gentler cleanse.

On reconnecting with the living Earth, Daniela shares: "In this modern world, many of us have become fragmented and disconnected from what once was inherent - your original 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 simplicity of Nature, the natural rhythms and your very own being. There is a restlessness that manifests in the soul when it is un-nurtured, and when you are not living in your true purpose and authenticity.

You are a part of this Earth and you are all connected. You have as humanity, collectively co-created your world, and if you recognise the world as a mirror, you come to see that there is much work for us each to do to restore the beauty and harmony of life.

The retreats are spaces created to take a moment away from your everyday life, to immerse yourself in Nature, and practices to quieten the mind, cleanse and renew your body, giving space to see what you are ready to release, change, integrate, create and walk forward within your life. Realigning with nature, you will journey with the natural rhythms of the day, the sun and moon, the seasons and cycles of life. 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 health imbalances and/or disharmony 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, meditative practices in the evenings, a detoxification and cleansing program of fresh juices and smoothies (with salad option); journeys to ancient sacred sites, 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.

What will you leave behind you for the next generations? “Let us be the ancestors our descendants will thank.” - Winona La Duke

Yoga and meditation

Yoga is a path of the heart, a journey into Being. Daniela shares her practice of yoga, weaving aspects of Hatha, Scaravelli, Kundalini & Kriya yoga. 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 shares: "Yoga is a path of the heart, a journey into Being. The yoga sessions weave aspects of Hatha, Scaravelli, Kundalini & Kriya yoga, as Daniela shares her practice of yoga. 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, turning your attention inwards and flowering from within. 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 your 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."

On quietness

“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 unplug from the outside world (turn off or leave at home your phone & devices), come with an open heart and mind, refrain from judgment and respect the intended tranquillity & quietness of the retreat space. Joy and light-heartedness is also very welcome (!), as you laugh, share & inspire one another, and there will be times during the day when you will practice and/or walk-in silence. This practice of inner and outer silence allows for deeper connection, as your cultivate mindfulness and allow yourselves to be present, quiet and to deeply listen."

Why detox?

Daniela shares: "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 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. Your 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 your life are all stored within your luminous energy body and your 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 your 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."
