Time to stare into nothingness or fall asleep

Time to create artworks in the sand

Time to realize you can let go of all illusion and your “story”

Time to meditate and connect left/right brain through sound

Time to talk, to be quiet or withdraw

Time to reconnect with your inner voice

Time for joy and sadness

Time to play and laugh

Time to eat

Time to love and be loved

Time for YOU

During this retreat we offer you total freedom to do and be as you please. There will be opportunity to attend inspired meditations to lead you within as well as personal guidance if you so wish.

2 to 8 – The next day we will have a 2-hour journey along the West Coast to a small fishing village called Paternoster.

This is where the biggest part of the retreat will take place. Here, the energy of the sea, feeling very wild, untamed and unpredictable will assist us in our individual purpose of moving into our “I AM” presence. Paternoster, meaning “Our Father” is a quaint little fishing village, which seems to have one foot in the old and the other in the new, but is energetically moving fast.
