All guests will be staying at a large country house on Dartmoor National Park in Devon. It is set in 18 acres of large, beautiful gardens with lawns, rockeries, ancient woodland, and a prehistoric stone circle. It is very peaceful and private with sweeping views across the River Teign valley and the moors beyond.

The house is set on the edge of the national park and has been renovated and lovingly refurbished, whilst retaining a homely, relaxed atmosphere. It is set within its own grounds and surrounded by woodland, rivers, and waterfalls. Accommodation is in twin or double rooms.

Program

The retreat is held within a nurturing space in a beautiful manor house on Dartmoor National Park; surrounded by forest, ancient rock, vast, mystical landscapes, and ancient sacred sites. The retreat days are woven with a blend of practices, classes, sharing, rest and nourishment. Throughout the week the group will journey through ‘the spiral of life’, exploring the passages that we move through in life, which are also in Nature, the seasons and celestial rhythms and the energetic centers (chakras) within our bodies. We will work with awakening the sacred witness, stillness, the remembrance of Mother Earth as a living being, and our place within Creation. We will be picking up threads of wisdom that have been left by our ancestors, and reflecting on the footprints that we each wish to leave behind us for the generations to come.

The retreat offers a space to cleanse and quieten body and mind, so that one may listen and attune to the wisdom within us; to flow once again with the streams of wisdom that are the original essence of the natural world.

During the retreat, we will be fasting/cleansing with fresh vegetable juices, vegetable broths, and herbal drinks throughout the day, with optional extra detox programs for cleansing the liver and gallbladder. There is also an option of a gourmet salad lunch for those who are wishing for a gentler cleanse.

On reconnecting with the living Earth, Daniela shares: "In this modern world, many of us have become fragmented and disconnected from what once was inherent – our original essence and relationship with the Earth as the Mother from which all life is born.

In the fast-paced world of technology and materialism, our attention has become distracted and diverted away from the purity and simplicity of Nature, the natural rhythms and of our very own being. There is restlessness that manifests in the soul when it is un-nurtured, and when we are not living in our true purpose and authenticity.

We are a part of this Earth and we are all connected. We have as humanity, collectively co-created our world, and if we see the world as a mirror, we come to recognize that there is much work for us each to do to restore the beauty and harmony of life.

The retreats are spaces created to take a moment away from your everyday life, to immerse yourself in Nature, and practices to quieten the mind, cleanse and renew your body, giving space to see what you are ready to release, change, integrate, create and walk forwards within your life. You will learn practices and tools to help you identify and move beyond disharmonious patterns and tendencies, reflect on ways that you may have created or energized disharmony in your life, and experience ways of living that elevate your mind, open your heart and create a vibratory field of resonance from within.

The retreat includes a session of yoga in the mornings, meditation and internal practices in the evenings, a detoxification and cleansing program of fresh juices and smoothies; sacred journeys, time in Nature; periods in silence, inner reflection, and contemplation; talks on diet and healing; group sharing circles; personal support. It is the intent that each day, you will deepen in your practice and internal awareness, learning to listen, feel and connect with the light within, and the living light of the Earth.

What will you leave behind you for the next generations? “Let us be the ancestors our descendants will thank.” – Winona La Duke

Yoga and meditation

Yoga is a path of the heart, a journey into Being. Daniela shares her practice of yoga, weaving aspects of Hatha, Scaravelli, Kundalini & Kriya yoga. Her yoga teaching also draws upon many years of working with energetic practices and the healing arts and spending time in silent retreat in Nature.

Daniela shares: "This approach to yoga is a journey of unfolding, turning our attention inwards and flowering from within. Through this deep and reflective practice, your natural sensitivity and self-awareness awaken, clearing toxicity and tension, freeing energy and space from inside, outwards.

Yoga activates the body’s own intelligence and innate healing abilities, encouraging the natural unfolding of healthy posture, a fluid, supple body, expansion of breath, and the opening of the heart to touch the soul and reconnect with our Essence.

The practice will include working with breath (life-force), asana (postures), kriyas (sequences), pranayama (breath work), meditation (stillness) and sacred reciprocity (harmony).

The retreat is open to experienced practitioners, as well as those with little experience or prior interest in yoga, as all practices are adjustable to meet all abilities. Yoga is not about what you can or can’t ‘do’.. but about meeting yourself as you are."

On quietness

"Silence is essential for deep transformation. It allows the practice of conscious breathing to become deep and effective. Like still water that reflects things as they are, the calming silence helps us to see things more clearly, and therefore, to be in deeper contact with ourselves and those around us." - Thich Nhat Hanh

Daniela believes that her retreats are "intended as a space for inner healing and sacred re-connection. To support this, we request that participants come with an open heart and mind, refrain from judgment and respect the intended tranquillity & quietness of the retreat space. Joy and lightheartedness is also very welcome (!), as we laugh, share & inspire one another, and there will be times during the day when we will practice and/or walk in silence. This practice of inner and outer silence allows for deeper connection, as we cultivate mindfulness and allow ourselves to be present, quiet and to deeply listen. ."

Why detox?

Daniela shares: "In the world today we are faced with the challenge of living clean and pure on a planet that has become toxic in many ways. Yet as the destruction becomes more visible in the world, many of us are awakening and feel called to return to ways of living that are in harmony with Nature, and with what creates and sustains health.

Our wisdom keepers tell us that all toxicity begins in thought, word, and action and that it is through the incongruity of our actions with the laws of nature that we have created the toxicity in all its manifestations in the world.

A build-up of toxicity in the body can lead to oversensitivity to certain foods, weight gain, sluggishness, inflammation, pain, infections, ailments, disease, menstrual issues, loss of vitality and sense of wellbeing, foggy mind, low energy, and many other things. Our bodies have the natural capacity to cleanse and heal themselves, though when overloaded or lacking vital nourishment, can become stagnated and toxins build up in the system.

The experiences of our life are all stored within our luminous energy body and our cells. During a detoxification process, as the physical body begins to purify and heal itself, layers of toxicity that have been stored within the muscles, tissues, bones, and cells are brought to the surface to be cleared. Detoxification can help you to naturally release tension, stress, negative emotions and thoughts; creating clarity of mind and inspiration to walk forwards in your life.

Everything in the universe is made of vibration, and vibrant, organic foods, Nature, creativity, prayer, purity of thought, beautiful music – for example – all help to lift and sustain our vibration in a state of health and resonance. As you detox your system and bring in pure foods, living water, light, purity, and prana (life force energy), your vibration is lifted and you will begin to resonate at clearer, more refined frequencies, allowing more light to flow through you and be held within your cells.

Detoxification helps the body to heal itself as nature intended; cleansing and repairing your beautiful body, helping to restore health, a sense of wellness and the true natural radiance of your inner being."
