Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Bulgaria, a land of mysteries, hidden in signs images and legends. You will be visiting various destinations and energetic spots, which have become a subject of international scientific research and exploration, but still have not unveiled their secrets. Some tourist sites that you will be visiting includes the Holy Cliff at which has been occupied by different ethnic groups through the centuries. The picturesque plateau on top of the cliff has been a location for temples, fortresses, rock sanctuaries of various people. Today the spot is one of the sacred meeting points for the followers of the famous White Brotherhood (Danovites).

You will also be visiting Indipascha, the rock sanctuary is among the most mysterious spots in Bulgaria, where pagan rituals mix with Christian beliefs. It was used for ancient cults but today Indipascha is referred to as the gate between the material world and the spiritual one. People believe that if they hang some part of the clothes of an ill person at Indipascha, they would be healed, provided that the clothes must be hung on the lianas - neither on the ground nor in the water so that illness remains in nobody’s space. The water springing from the rock is believed to heal too.
