ABOUT OUR THEME FOR THIS RETREAT: AWAKENING THE HEART

Anais Nin writes, “and then one day the risk it took to remain tightly in a bud was more painful that the risk it took to blossom.” Yoga teaches that we are always evolving in the direction of happiness – all we need to do is get out of our own way. We must stop blocking the Spanda which is always blossoming. Spanda is a Sanskrit term for the subtle creative pulse of the universe as it manifests into the dynamism of living form. Another way to think of this is from the beautifully written book Yoga Spandakarika (Song of the Sacred Tremor) by Daniel Odier in which he writes: This is the most difficult thing to attain: accepting the freedom of movement, the creativity of life, understanding that a fixed state, as marvelous as it might be, is not compatible with life.

Join us on this retreat to unlearn and unblock the habits that are holding you back from your best life. Come be part of a place and experience that opens you up like what Krishna Das describes, “Grace wakes us up when we are asleep, brings light to where there is darkness and removes obstacles from our path”.

Practice living your Spanda in a way that keeps you connected to your core beliefs and desires. And come away from this week feeling radiant! “The awake heart is like a sky that pours light!” – Hafiz

“You don’t need to justify your love, you don’t need to explain your love, you just need to practice your love. Practice creates the master.” ~ Miguel Ruiz

    • Ciao Monica,
      It is truly amazing. One of those places that even while you are there living it you can’t believe exists. It’s incredible and very non Europeans ever discover it. And yes, vegan/oil-free is certainly an option.

      We send out surveys to all our clients registered for the trip way in advance so that the chef at Villa Lina can design menus specific to the group. And there are so many vegan options you’ll love it!

      Email us directly anytime hello@alchemytours.com

      We’d love to have you join this beautiful group of open hearts!

      Peace in all ways.

    • We are too! Can close our eyes and feel the sunshine, feel the relaxing spirit of the island of Ischia and breathing quiets. Everything feels calm but happy. Can’t wait to share this with you!
