The deeper teachings of all Ages
Shamanism, Lucid-Dreaming, Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Healing
In this retreat we will focus how to access the teachings of the mystery schools: on the deeper spiritual mysteries and wisdom gained through our deeper intuitions, synchronicity, (lucid) dreams, visions and other ways in which we are exposed to the greater mysteries found inside of ourselves and the multiverse. To ground ourselves we will look at the perspectives of the yogi’s in the east, the shamans of the world and the (lucid) dreamers of the west. Read more about this retreat here.

The path of the Spiritual Warrior

We will do this by looking amongst others at the perspectives of modern understandings and scientific discoveries for example related to the influence of hormones and the passion cycle and ancient yogic spiritual practices such as Tantra and Shamanism. Read more about this retreat here.

Starting Price: 500 euro

Note that this is a male onlynon-sexual practice and non-nude retreat. We will however discuss sexual practices in the theory classes and workshops.

The Retreat House

Homely Feel – Beautiful Nature – Healthy Veg Food

Our retreat house is located at a unique and peaceful spot in the middle of the Sierra de las Nieves national park in sunny southern Spain, a little more than an hour from Málaga airport. The house is surrounded by beautiful green forests, a natural brook, a swimming pool and plenty of hiking routes starting from the front door. Here you can breathe fresh air while listening to a silent concert of birds, water and the wind through the trees.

We have multiple room types available, with two large shared bathrooms. The living room has a big fireplace, cozy reading couches, board games and a library. Our book collection contains interesting titles about yoga, meditation, anatomy, tantra, dreams and spirituality.

We have a common kitchen filled to the brink with lots of yummy fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and spices for everybody to use. You can also take a stroll through the garden and, depending on the season, you could find figs, mulberries, walnuts, almonds, olives and various cooking herbs. For breakfast you can take and prepare whatever you want from the kitchen, while the other vegetarian meals we cook together as a group.

The homely and personal atmosphere of our retreat house makes it unique. Most participants come alone, but being in a small yet diverse group makes it easy to get to know and connect with the other participants. It is the optimal setting to focus on your personal growth, while relaxing in nature’s beauty and tranquility.

Please note that the retreat house is an alcohol, drug and smoke free environment.

About Us

We are two enthusiastic dutch yogi’s pursuing our dreams. Our paths have brought us together and have moved us in magical ways to Spain. What started as a short holiday, unexpectedly ended up being an opportunity to host yoga retreats at a beautiful place in the middle of nature. Since then we have welcomed many lovely and inspiring people.

Alexander is fascinated by all sorts of spiritual practices, like dreaming and shamanism, and loves above all facilitating a growth in understanding through theory classes and workshops. He has a background in Ashtanga yoga practice, and more recently discovered the complementary, restorative, gentle delight of yin yoga. End of 2016 he studied the practice and principles of yin yoga with Joe Barnett and Jo Phee.

Serieke enjoys many styles of yoga and has studied and practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga with Johan Noorloos, hatha with Jenneke van Doorn, critical alignment with Nicole Bannenberg and many other classes with awesome teachers. She is especially interested in introspection as a way of creating awareness of thoughts, beliefs, emotions and actions.
