Calling all lovers of nature, all in need of healing & ancient wisdom initiation, to join us on a world sacred land, for a transformational retreat with Shiva Rea, Sivani Mata Francis and a Krishna Das guest appearance, during the rare alignment of the Summer Solstice and Full Moon in Mani, Greece.☀️
All practice levels are welcome. Come as you are! Our Prana Flow will support both those needing to rest and restore with our daily lunar flow, and those who are ready to jump up to a higher level of energy with our solar–lunar flows.
Together, we will celebrate the healing Shakti of earth goddesses,
such as Rea, mother of gods & goddesses,
Gaia, sacred living earth, and other powerful divine energies of this ancient power spot,
as we amplify our intentions to revive and thrive!
Our retreat intention is to support you in your sacred embodiment. Our pilgrimage to the sacred site of Ancient Messene will forever transform our felt sense of health & connection with our own healing life-force within.
Each day we will call in the sunrise-sunset for invoking vital energy and rest and dream with the moonrise and moonset in the spirit of our re-connection retreat. We will invoke the Goddesses for inspiration on the parallels to our own approaches to health as sacred embodiment with yoga and ancient Greece. Be inspired to learn more of the Goddess’s teachings, divine attributes, symbols, and healing powers. Your guides are longtime pilgrims and global teachers dedicated to the honoring of our living earth, Gaia, and the realization of the wisdom of the Goddess traditions around the world and specifically within Shakti Tantra.
Post Retreat Continuation: You will be given tools, Prana Vinyasa Flows to continue your daily life, and practices for your personal vital health cultivation. Combined with the arts of chant, dance and movement meditation with kirtan you will embody a complete integrated model of movement, daily ritual, and sacred connection in harmony with nature.
Shiva Rea serves the innate intelligence within nature and our rhythmic bodies. As a global prana vinyasa teacher, Shiva empowers people from all walks of life to experience the flow of breath and our extraordinary energetic body. She has done fieldwork and offered yoga in over 50 countries from urban centers to ancient sites, large-scale festivals to indigenous Chumash grandmother’s council.
As the founder of Samudra Global School for Living Yoga, her home practice media, teacher trainings, adventure retreats, online programs and musical collaborations provide resources for people around the world to bring a transforming flow into their everyday life. Her activism extends from the worldwide Global Mala Project, to Yoga Energy Activism and gatherings for women.
Sivani Mata is an artist moved by a sensory and elemental exploration of life through practice that evokes the liminal experience of trance-like states of consciousness, and the centring of the awareness in heart. She believes in this process of deep inner work as a way to cultivate a harmonic relationship with the Earth. She is grateful for this journey she finds herself on and the practices that support her path www.sivanimata.co.uk
