Break Free Retreat

13 - 17 December 2018
(5 days, 4 nights)

Hoi An, Vietnam


You’ve realized you need to make some positive changes in your life and you’re not sure how to manage it on your own?  Do you feel stuck on a treadmill, demoralized, professionally or emotionally drained? Then this 5 day, holistic and creative experience based on pattern breaking philosophies will help you find and listen to your inner voice.  You will identify your negative patterns which may be limiting your life, and make the changes you need to break them, enabling you to embrace new opportunities, move forward and progress.

A dedicated and professional team will guide and lead you through a series of daily yoga, yoga nidra, meditation and creative pattern breaking workshops designed to stimulate your mind, energise your body, connect your spirit and enable you to explore and identify the patterns which harness but limit and restrict your potential and growth.

The retreat includes 6 creative workshops specifically designed to give you the maximum opportunity to identify the patterns that are and are not working in your life, focus on your resources and facilitate change in your life. Depending on the individual needs, the workshops offer the opportunity to spend time exploring various aspects of our lives such as:

• What are the important elements of our lives and what is 'clutter'.

• Managing and developing meaningful relationships.

• Exploring and understanding our aspirations and planning how to work towards achieving them.

• How to differentiate between 'what I need and what I want'.

• How to address challenges and overcome barriers.

• Exploring grace and how to nurture and value ourselves.

These activities intermingled with yoga, meditation and yoga nidra form a powerful and holistic program to stimulate your mind, body and spirit in a unique set of creative processes and enable you to make lasting changes.  The focus is on practical and creative exercises rather than just the traditional theoretical studies.

As part of this very special transformational retreat, you will receive an Access Bar treatment. Access Bars is a gentle hands-on modality. It consists of 16 bars of energy that run through and around your head. These bars connect at specific “bars-points” and correlate to different areas and aspects of life. During an Access Bars session, a practitioner gently touches these points to release the electromagnetic charge of all thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions, and beliefs that may have limited you in the concerned life areas. Any limitations that you create in your life are connected to your thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions, and beliefs about it. When the bars-points are lightly touched, you begin to clear away what’s locked up that keeps you from believing you can have the life you’ve always known is possible.

After 5 days in this safe, supported and nurturing environment you will have the energy, power, skills and insights to enable you to carry on making positive changes long after you go back home.
