Pura Vida Wellness Retreat offers emotional healing addressing the roots of unconscious patterns. Body-oriented (somatic) practices, interoception, and spiritual inquiry support the transformation of the emotional and mental imprints. This program integrates Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) with many mindfulness practices. In addition, you will also receive more personal attention and care every other day (every day except the day of the departure).
You will focus on Holistic Breathwork / counseling / spiritual life coaching / compassionate communication sessions and three weekly body / energy work sessions. You will learn breathing and relaxation techniques to expel built-up toxins and negativity which are meditation, mindfulness, and inquiry practices to rediscover your true self and release the illusion of separation to live in joy and peace in the present moment. You will also get support to learn and create intentions and plans to continue your individual practices after the retreat on your own at home.
The word holistic comes from Greek word “holos” which means whole. It means that healing needs to embrace the whole and not just separate parts. It also means that nothing can be discarded or ignored. It rather needs a full integration of all parts. Each human being displays multiple aspects of “spirit” and they all need to be addressed. In this holistic approach, you don’t just acknowledge a complete person, physically, mentally, and psychologically. You will move beyond the person into transpersonal as the “whole” doesn’t exist just as a separate person.
You will explore spiritual and human dimensions of “being” or in other words, vertical and horizontal, being nothing and everything at the same time. There are two basic breathing techniques being practiced during the Holistic Breathwork session which helps facilitate both of human vulnerability in the personal and human spirituality beyond the personal. The session integrates sharing, spiritual counseling, conscious feedback, inquiry, a transformation of negative core patterns and beliefs, life coaching and conscious, connected, and deep breathing.
It is beneficial for reducing stress, increasing energy and well-being, releasing toxins, emotions, and stagnant energy from the cells of the body, accessing the source of disease and releasing physical discomforts, unraveling relationship / intimacy issues and embracing and healing the abandonment / rejection wound, increasing flow, ease, joy, and pleasure in life and relationships.
It will be accessing expanded states of consciousness, including higher guidance and clarity about one’s patterns and life purpose, letting go of limiting thoughts, patterns and imprints from birth, childhood, and past lives, clearing the blocks to and opening to greater creativity, increasing moment-to-moment breath awareness, healing the wound of your imagined separation, experiencing greater inner peace, feeling connected to, and caring for yourself, the earth, and all beings, and awakening to the truth of who you really are.
Compassionate communication is also known as Nonviolent Communication (or NVC). It is a powerful set of tools that can transform your lives. Founded by Marshall Rosenberg, there are now NVC practice groups in over 100 countries as NVC is being used worldwide. NVC is non-denominational, cross-cultural, and can be used by anyone who wants to have better relationships. Compassionate communication guides you to reframe how you express yourself, how you hear others, and resolve conflicts by focusing your consciousness on what you are observing, feeling, needing, and requesting.
Thalassotherapy immers yourself in the warm ocean water helps to absorb trace elements of magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, and iodide found in seawater. It’s energizing and rejuvenating.
