Creating Sacred Spaces

31 May – 6 June 2012

During this full moon week we invite you to join us in the breathtaking southern parts of Spain to
reconnect with yourself, nature and the world of spirit.

We will learn how to communicate with nature and recognize the sacredness of all life. We will learn how to create and embrace sacred spaces in which you can transform your life, transcend the ordinary and enter the sacred.

During the week we will:

  • Learn to build a labyrinth with stones that you choose from the land
  • Learn and experience the profound transformation of walking a labyrinth
  • Learn how to draw an easy classical labyrinth
  • Use yoga, breathing, meditation, drumming, sound, movement and silence to enter the sacred space within
  • Experience a shamanic journey to visit and get to know the sacred space within
  • Create dreamcatchers and mandalas that you can take home

When you go home you will know how to make a labyrinth in your own space. You will also have practical tools which will help you to find the sacred space in your everyday life

 

 

 

 

Internationally qualified labyrinth facilitator Terry de Vries will lead the retreat with John Ashwell.
