“Planting a Seed”
New Year’s Retreat

5th-7th of January 2024, Málaga region

How do you want your 2024 to be?
What would you like to change or improve?
What would you like to accomplish?
How would you like to feel and 

WHO would you like to become in the process of getting there?

During this weekend retreat we will be exploring in a safe and encouraging environment all those questions. We will also do a workshop about Life Purpose, where you will be able to get more clarity about what your calling is – what you shall be doing in this life to be more fulfilled and happier.

We will do daily meditation sessions in the morning, powerful workshops during the day, and evening group gathering to share our main insights from the day, learn from each other and cherish the new connections.

We will also have some time to JUST BE, relax, rest, connect with nature or receive a quality holistic massage (for those who book that option).

All that accompanied with healthy nurturing meals and quality time with like-minded people in nature.

At the end of this weekend, you shall have more clarity about how to create your dreamed 2024, the most important things, actions or habits you need to change, improve or implement to become the person you want to become this year.

Retreat can be conducted in English, Spanish or Polish.
