Benefits Of The Royal Path Retreat

Release Trauma

Thanks to the safe container and our compassionate guidance you will be able to relax and release old core woundings to stop them from sabotaging your life or projecting them onto the very people you love. You will also become comfortable with emotional discomfort and learn how to navigate emotional upheaval.

Revive & Replenish

“My mind, body, heart and soul were nourished and cherished in a way I had never experienced before” are words described by one of our graduates. In this retreat you will be met with unconditional love and presence that makes you feel welcome in exactly the way you are.
It will positively impact your sense of self-worth and how you show up in the world.


Healing ourselves equals liberating ourselves where we get very clear on what we want and what we do not want to show up as our reality in life. After the retreat you will be able to enjoy the ripple effect of a more healed and expanded version of yourself. Step by step you will unearth your authentic self that has been buried and smothered beneath many layers of repressed feelings.

What Clients Say About The Royal Path Retreat

The Key To Happiness Is Found In Childhood

Many of us experience life with depression, anxiety, addictions, dysfunctional relationships with little emotional and sexual intimacy. In our experience anything that does not work well in our life eventually leads back to adverse childhood experiences, especially the absence of secure love. The feelings we encountered as a result of such painful experiences made us suffer silently since for many of us there was no one there to help us with such difficult feelings and we felt lonely and very much overwhelmed. 

When we think of revisiting the past and the feelings we experienced we get scared because no one wants to suffer (again). However, what we do not know is that allowing those repressed feelings does not equal suffering. Feeling our feelings is in fact one of the most liberating things to do as it allows us to finally be seen and feel validated in who we are.

Living in repression, however, makes us numb and keeps us from living orgasmically alive. There is no way you can feel bliss if your system is busy with constant repression. Feeling and integrating our painful experiences is essential to whole-hearted living. Without a doubt we are capable of healing to a point where our heart reawakens and finally develops its full capacity to love and be loved in return.

Healing Work Is Layer Work

Getting to the core of our life’s issues is an art and even more so it is truly like peeling an onion. It is a complex process that requires for us to work through many different layers. We will hit various roadblocks along the way and we will have to consider many factors when doing so. We are also asked to find ways to consciously bypass our perfectly crafted defense, and regulation-system and we have to deal with various layers of fear, shame and vulnerability.

Apart from that our brain does a brilliant job in protecting us from emotional upheaval and it will do anything to protect us from suffering. In order to allow expansion and to get out of our comfort zone, our brain needs to make various experiences where it registers that it is actually safe to feel and revisit the past. It is through those new safe imprints that it will dare to feel more and more again. What’s essential in it is that we always respect and honour the needed tempo of our soul. We cannot possibly rush through it, we have to go slow but steady to enable positive and lasting transformation. 

In this way we will be able to safely approach the bitter sweet pain of grief that lies dormant in our hearts and layer by layer release it so we can truly break free from emotional suffering. The Royal Path offers a careful and holistic approach to lasting healing called Emotional Recycling. We will help you break through those barriers and naturally and carefully guide you to where you need to go to ensure life-changing breakthroughs.


The Royal Path Retreat Highlights

Letting Go Of Defenses

Living in defense keeps us from connecting authentically with other people and therefore keeps us separate and lonely. It also prevents us from accessing our deeper and more repressed feelings. Step by step we will naturally and safely guide you to let go of your unique defenses to do the necessary healing work. It will enable you to live life in a real, authentic and open-hearted way.

The Power Of Vulnerability

It is vulnerability that creates love and connection and allows for intimate relationships to thrive. Daring to be vulnerable holds phenomenal positive power even if it might be scary in the beginning. Once the key to vulnerability is unlocked it automatically creates incredible courage and turns shame into an unshakable confidence of who we are.

The Power Of Exposure

Nothing is as powerful as the tool of exposure. Letting other people truly see us by exposing ourselves is a vital stepping stone when it comes to healing. Exposure equals feeling validated and seen which at our core is what we have always been longing for. At the beginning it might feel impossible and one of the scariest things to do. However, once leveraged, it is also the most liberating and powerful tool for positive and lasting transformation.

Breaking Through Shame

Most of us carry an immeasurable amount of shame about who we are, how we think and what we do. This type of toxic shame keeps us from stepping up, tapping into our essence and live-up to our full potential. It is time to stop feeling inadequate or not good enough. Breaking through shame results in a life lived unapologetically YOU and provides a deep sense of personal sovereignty and empowerment.

A Full Blown Awakening Of The Heart

Learn and embody what it means to live with an open and vulnerable heart. Connecting with your own and other people’s pain cracks you wide open and will lead to sincere empathy and compassion for yourself and others. You will get an extraordinary chance to love and be loved in return. Living with an open heart will bring you many real and authentic human connections and massively increase your level of self-love.

A Pure Exceptional Human Experience

Those are words coming from one of our graduates. What does it actually mean to be human? This week will give you precisely that, a re-connection to the most magical and powerful aspects of being human. You will be touched in ways you might not have been before and nourished on the deepest level possible. You will leave with a new sense of appreciation and clarity of who you are and how you want to show up in this world.

Are You Ready To Put Yourself First?

Whatever your personal situation looks like, we are here for you.

You might feel lonely, depressed, experience a gut-wrenching heartache or are dealing with loss.

Perhaps you struggle in your intimate relationship or never actually find a person you can share your love and time with?

 Are you ready to put YOURSELF first and choose YOU?

The Time Is Now

We only have to take one good look around ourselves, and we can all agree that healing today is no longer optional. Humanity is in pain and from our own experiences we are now able to shed light around what it is exactly that has brought us to where we are today. 

If we want to see our outside world changing for the better and finally experience our life and relationships as the most beautiful representation and boldest statement of our glorious, talented and alive self, we have to start from within. And the time is now.

What You Will Learn


Trust & Surrender

Learning to trust and surrender especially when things get difficult are very precious and helpful qualities for life as it allows for more relaxation, less frustration and more flow. This retreat helps you to develop unshakable resilience that will get you through the challenging situations life throws at you. It’s about finding acceptance of the things we cannot control and confidently change the things we actually can.


Holding Space

Holding space in significant and intimate relationships is essential for quality human interaction. It will enable you to see them for who they are and how they feel and allow you to be truly present. It will not only make you a person people trust, but an exceptional parent too and people will navigate towards you and feel safe in your presence. It gives you an interesting and attractive energy people feel naturally drawn to.


Authentic Compassion & Real Empathy

Do you often find yourself judging others? Would you agree that judgement is not something you choose, but rather something that often happens involuntarily? There is a reason for that. In this retreat, you will learn about those reasons and transform judgement into compassion and empathy. In this way you will be able to understand someone else’s perspective and connect more deeply with them.


The Art Of Emotional Recycling

We will teach you our unique and powerful signature methodology to enable lasting transformation, deep healing and emotional liberation called Emotional Recycling. It is based on our intense study and deep understanding of human nature, our own personal healing journeys and the more than 15 years of walking the path to emotional liberation.


Becoming Comfortable With Emotional Discomfort

We are used to regulating ourselves whenever we feel emotional discomfort and instead repress and deny what it is that we are feeling. Those feelings, however, never go away, they amplify and create havoc and often make us act them out on others. Learning how to ride the waves of discomfort and therewith taking full responsibility is a much needed and more mature way of relating. It allows you to take charge of your emotional state and you will stop making other people the source of your happiness..


Releasing Toxic Shame

A lot of us internalised toxic shame about who we are and it keeps us from living an emotionally liberated and free life. You will learn the major sources of toxic shame and how it keeps you in hiding and isolation. You will naturally receive an imprint of being good just the way you are and you will no longer be a prisoner of shame, fear and instead integrate the disowned parts of yourself.

Are You In Doubt Whether You Are Ready For This Journey?

If you are still reading on we can tell that a part in you is ready and longs for such a journey. However, you might also hesitate and feel some sort of fear of change, of the unknown or of letting go and losing control. Those fears are perfectly natural and instead of letting them overwhelm you and letting them take the decision for you, leverage them! Take a leap of faith, trust your inner guidance and choose YOU!

No matter your fear or hesitation we invite you to reach out to us. Send us an email or let’s jump on a call where we answer all of your open questions, doubts or hesitations. Just remember your heart’s deepest longings and declare out loud that healing and growth for you is no longer optional. All you have to do is show up and bring your most solid commitment to embark on this journey with us. We have got your back.

Elements Of The Royal Path Retreat


Trigger Work

Triggers are gold and worth a million dollar of therapy. We will leverage the incredible value of our emotional triggers to get to the feelings behind them and understand how they connect to our current suffering in life.


Decoding Drama & Mastery Of Feelings

Learn how to conduct and own your feelings instead of unconsciously act them out on the people around you and become an Emotional Recycler who has learned a mature way of relating.



Vulnerability is absolutely essential for intimate relating. In a safe container and with our support, you will discover how powerful vulnerability truly is, become comfortable with it and see it for the strength it really is.


Embodiment Excercises

Feelings, aliveness and pleasure happen in the body. Let it be your compass and guide you towards a more joyful and pleasure-filled life, because If you are in your head you are dead.


Kings & Queens Qualities

Learn all about and integrate the healthy masculine and feminine qualities within so you can step up and become the King & Queen you naturally are.


Inner Child & Original Pain Work

Learn about and understand how your wounded inner child subconsciously sabotages your (love) life and relationships and what it takes to heal those significant wounds.


Conscious Anger Work

Change your relationship with anger by expressing and owning it in a healthy and secure way. Anger is crucial if you want to feel more alive and empowered. Let it unleash your creativity and leverage it for the driving force it truly is.



Meditation is a fundamental part during our week together as it helps us ground ourselves. There will be a mix of active and passive meditations all aimed at quieting the mind to enable reflection and insight into your process.

I was at the lowest point in my life when I came to the retreat and I didn’t know where to go from there. I thought I needed to find a way out only to realize that I actually needed to find a way in. Aleah and Dan helped me connect back to my heart and hurt, but also to my inner warrior who is capable to resolve the difficulties I still have in my life. I felt a lot lighter and more at peace then when I had arrived and I look forward to getting things done now.

Meet The Creators

For the past 15 years, Aleah and Dan, founders of The Royal Path, have been engaging consciously and passionately in the personal growth and deep healing realm. Their backgrounds consist of participation and education in a multitude of therapeutic and personal development courses, trainings and retreats such as extended Primal Therapy in Los Angeles, Inner Child Work, Original Pain-work, Conscious Sexuality, Tantra and Tantra Therapy. Their journey also included Family Constellation as well as various forms of meditations. 

It is their fearless willingness to continuously dive deeper into the essence of their own being that created the profound understanding, heightened sensitivity and supreme clarity when it comes to dynamics of human nature, relationships, the realm of healing and personal growth. Both Dan and Aleah bring individual unique gifts such as valuable life experiences, undivided presence, an extreme high state of awareness and clairsentience.

Aleah and Dan have been in an intimate relationship for almost 7 years consciously walking and practicing the path of authentic and conscious relating before deciding to let go of each other. For a while, they both set off on their individual journey to implement and deepen their learnings. Later they re-united as trustful and inspired business partners based on a purely platonic friendship. Today, they are both reaping the fruits of their yearlong hard work in the relationships with their new life partners. 

Their work is highly inspired by the teachings of: John Bradshaw, Arthur Janov and David Deida.

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.
