Itinerary – A Week With Us
Saturday, Arrival At The Retreat Venue
We open check-in from 4pm and soon you will enjoy your first tasty Italian dinner. In between you get to enjoy free-time where you can enjoy the nature or the pool area. After dinner we will start with our first evening session and you will also get to know the team and your fellow travellers.
Day 1: Opening Up
Gently and slowly we will start opening ourselves up for the week ahead. Through teachings and exercises we look at our defence mechanisms, experience our first breath work session as well as active meditation. We will also open up the sharing circle, where Aleah and Dan will work with you individually in the circle so you can start your personal journey on the very first day.
Day 2: Shame, Fear & Vulnerability
Those three words might bring up some fear or resistance within you. Usually, once people are in our field they quickly dare to explore their feelings around shame and fear in a completely natural way. Consciously tapping into your shame and your fears and daring to express them vulnerably will bring you much release and liberation about who you are.
Day 3: Inner Child
The inner child represents innocence, joy, wonder, awe, playfulness, sensitivity and other such qualities. But the inner child also carries with it childhood fears, traumas, hurt and anger. As adults, we may be convinced we have ‘moved on’ and left our childhood selves behind. We may even judge our childhood selves harshly for being sensitive or innocent. However, when we deny our inner child, we are controlled by it. This happens unconsciously. The adult, despite their best intentions, is not able to self-direct their own lives and make good choices. Instead, they are guided by their wounded, hurt, angry, fearful and rejected inner child. This day will be dedicated to reconnecting with your inner child and you will be impressed by what it has to share with you.
Day 4: Healthy Anger
Most of us have a very twisted relationship with anger due to the fact that we have not learned the healthy expression of anger where we are not hurting another being. We have often come across a very ‘unowned’ type of anger where it was thrown at us as an act-out of mostly our parents at first. Naturally our connection to anger is pretty tainted as it has left huge marks on us and as a result of such experiences most of us have either shut anger down completely, repressed it, denied it or fear it. Others might get angry very easily and repeat the very same behavior they themselves have often experienced negatively. This day will be dedicated to shifting our understanding about anger, to owning our anger and to healthily express it. In the evening we will separate into women’s and men’s groups as we will be spending the next day separate.
Day 5: Kings & Queens Qualities
On this day women and men will spend the day separately. We will dive deeply into the divine masculine and feminine qualities and discuss and explore various gender-related topics. It will also be a day of answering all of your open questions around sexuality, on being a man or woman in this world, on relationships or sexual and emotional intimacy.
Dinner on this day will transform into the “Royal Dinner” where the Kings & Queens will meet again. A delightful dinner and party with conscious exercises awaiting you. We will all dress up and meet ourselves again in the most beautiful expression of the healthy masculine and feminine.
Day 6: The Royal Chair
The Royal Chair is a secret day that we will not reveal at this point.
But trust us when we say that it is a suitable conclusion of the week we have experienced together.
Saturday: Departure Day
The retreat will end at around 1pm on Saturday. The morning session will be all about rounding up the experience and closing it consciously with a beautiful ritual. You will leave with an uplifted, grateful and deeply satisfying feeling that will carry you through the next couple of months with a new understanding and appreciation of who you are. Please make sure you book your flight late enough so you don’t have to leave early as integration is an important part of this kind of journey.
