July 29th – August 3rd / ‘Awaken your Heart, Deep Rest in the Wild Nature’
July 29 - August 3
Led by: Gemma Polo
About the retreat:
This 6-day retreat is an invitation to become intimate with nature, listen deeply and rest fully.
The connection with the elements, the silence, and Gemma’s group and individual accompaniment will help you release layers of conditioning and fear and find rest in a space beyond the mind.
Gemma will guide you on a journey inwards in which the mind will calm down organically, find rest and transform different areas of our being.
The retreat will combine silence with some guided moments of sharing from the heart. The days will be woven with connected movement and nature walks, inspirational talks, guided meditations, and silent meditations together.
There will be time for personal integration through creativity, and at the end there will be a practice of opening the heart with meditative songs.
Throughout the retreat there will be optional individual accompaniment sessions with Gemma.
