Sacred Journey Meditation and Healing Retreat

January 29th – Feb 5th, 2018

SHINE YOUR LIGHT invites you to EXPLORE YOUR SOUL for 7 days and nights at our next >>> Sacred Healing Meditation and Yoga Retreat <<< on the serine and tropical island of Koh Phangan, Thailand. January 29 – February 5, 2018.

 

Start your 2018 New Year right and JOURNEY INTO THE CENTER OF YOUR SOUL. Your Sacred Healing Soul Journey takes place in a peaceful and luxurious, private villa, surrounded by palm trees and lush gardens.

Rumours have it that Koh Phangan is a ‘Crystal Island’, formed on a giant Quartz crystal.

Imagine yourself  on a far-away island, relaxing and disconnecting from the pressures of daily work and life. This is an opportunity to reconnect with your spirit. Every day as we rise with the sun, SHINE YOUR LIGHT founder Jewels Bertrand will lead you through a sequence Kundalini kriyas designed to clear energetic blockages, deliver you to strength and vitality and reignite your divine radiant light.

 

Who is this retreat for:

This rejuvenating retreat is for anyone looking to create a toolbox for elevation. It is especially helpful for anyone feeling stuck, blocked, uninspired or stressed and sick from the pressures and demands life. This is your opportunity for change.

You need not have any prior experience with yoga or meditation. Although this is a deeply sophisticated system, you will be lovingly guided by an experienced teacher with over 10 years of teaching.

 

What is a Kundalini Yoga:

Kundalini Yoga uses an ancient system of kriyas. Kriyas are a series of guided movements, breathing techniques, meditations, mudras and sound vibrations that when combined, quickly initiate physical healing and spiritual awakening. They allow you to connect to the infinite wisdom, raise your vibration and learn to live from your intuitive mind so you can bring in new, limitless possibilities in your life.

 

The Focus:

Tuning in with the nature of this unique tropical island and amplified by the natural healing crystals imbedded in her ground, we will bring balance to the 5 physical elements known as tattvas – earth, fire, air, water and ether. These elements make up our world and shape our human experience. Each person has a dominant tattva, or an element, which directs his or her individual behavior and projected personality.

When tattvas are strong, in balance, and located in their proper areas of the body, then you are in a place to heal and release stress and illness, and channel your projections. These sacred Kundalini kriyas and meditations are effective technologies for clearing and emptying the clutter of the mind’s constant chatter so that you may reach a state of inner peace where intuition flows and the solutions to even the toughest problems can be discovered.

 

Do you ever feel like you keep making the same mistakes over and over again? You may ask yourself… Why? How did I end up here again?

 

You may not know it, but much of how you act and react is inherited from your ancestors… And is still present in your collective unconscious! As we progress through the daily workshops, you will discover your Ancestral Archetype and Personality Projection. At the end of the retreat, you will be given your own personal meditation and a system to practice at home. Thus you will have the tools to remove harmful, destructive patterns, guide you through challenges, help launch you to new heights and keep you balance when all is running smoothly.

 

Join us and learn how you can change your life from within the core of your inner self. This retreat promises to give you the tools to connect to the infinite wisdom of the earth and universe. With this ancient model you begin to live from your intuitive mind and bring in new, limitless possibilities in your life. The classes and workshops will divided in morning and evening hours giving you amply free time in the day to explore the island and your soul.
