Aluna Healing invites you to join them for their autumn retreat in Scottish Highlands. This is a very special retreat to cleanse, renew, and awaken the connection between your soul and the sacred essence of life. This work draws upon earth-based wisdom and teachings held by indigenous elders, sacred healing arts, and yoga. Yoga is not about what you can or can't do but about meeting yourself as you are.
The venue will be a beautiful wooden eco-lodge set within 5 acres of ancient oak woodland. It is located on the edge of Loch Torridon. The venue has a main lodge with an external cabin and the outdoor yoga platform that overlooks the loch, mountains with streams running through the land and trails through the woodland to the cliff-tops, and down to the beaches. All buildings' interiors are made of wooden materials. You will stay in a twin or double room that has log fires so that it will be warm, bright, and comfortable.
This is a unique and deeply transformational retreat, facilitated by an experienced healer and guide. If you are looking for change in your life, for deeper meaning, connection, inspiration or to clear, cleanse and reconnect with yourself, nature, and creation, this retreat offers you a sacred space to cultivate a more radiant you.
Each day, there will be an exploration and inquiry into who you are, what your origins are, what the wisdom that has been left to you by your ancestors are, and how you can clear something which blocks the full expression of the light of your soul. Through unraveling your sacred essence, you will be reawakening the memory of how to listen to and hear the voice of something sacred within. You will also learn how to commune with the streams of wisdom that flow throughout the natural world.
The focus of this retreat will be "becoming a healthy seed" which is reconnecting and aligning yourself in health and harmony so that you may resonate as a healthy cell of the living body of mother Earth. Each day, you will deepen your practice and internal awareness, learn to listen, as well as feel and connect with the light within and the living light of the earth.
On this retreat, you will have:
Yoga is a path of the heart and during these few days, you will be guided to work through layers of body and mind to release and clear patterns of toxicity and tension to reveal the deeper essence of the soul. The practices are designed to guide you into a space of awareness and attention and will include opening to breath (life-force), asana (postures), kriyas (sequences), pranayama (breath work), meditation (stillness), and sacred reciprocity (harmony).
This retreat will give you the chance to detoxify your body through organic juices, smoothies, healing herbal teas, meals, as well as full support and guidance.
"In the world today we are faced with the challenge of awakening and returning to ways of living that are in harmony with nature, and with what truly creates and sustains health.
Our world and our inner worlds have become contaminated in many ways, and just as we see the build up of pollution in the world, our bodies may also accumulate a build up of toxins and dis-ease within its system. Over time, this toxicity can lead to oversensitivity to certain foods, weight gain, sluggishness, inflammation, pain, infections, ailments, disease, loss of vitality and sense of wellbeing, and a clouding of clarity and energetic luminosity. Our bodies can become toxic in many ways: through our food and drink, the air we breathe, what we put on our skin; heavy metals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, our environment, unresolved trauma, emotional disturbance and perhaps above all, negative thinking patterns.
Everything is vibration, and that which vibrates at denser frequencies than our optimum state of health will create imbalance and disharmony within our system over time. As we detox our body and bring in pure, foods, fluids and prana (life force energy), our vibration is lifted and we begin to resonate at clearer, more refined frequencies, allowing more light to flow through us and be held within our cells.
The experiences of our life are stored within our body, until we are able to release and clear them. To truly detox, it is necessary to look at and address all areas of our life and ways of being that are toxic, and take action to cleanse and clear the things that we are giving energy to that are not complementary to our health and radiance.
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 and are given space to be cleared. The process of detoxification will allow you to naturally heal and address experiences from past events where you have unresolved emotions, thoughts, woundings and soul loss.
A well managed cleansing program can help you to release and eliminate unwanted toxins in a safe way, giving you clarity and inspiration to walk forwards in your life in a new way.
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."
