What does UpLeveling your Mind, Body & Spirit look like?

  • Mind: Develop mental and emotional hygiene through the most efficient breathwork and meditation techniques.
  • Body: Unleash your vitality and energy levels through a personal an optimal nutrition and the right kind of exercise for your unique constitution.
  • Spirit: Discover the power of non-ordinary and non-rational states of consciousness to solidify your soul purpose.

The Vision of this Retreat

Eating well, exercising, blood sugar control, getting deep sleep is basic. To up level, you need to re-establish your connection to your soul purpose, and your energy body.  

From a quantum science perspective, energy always affects the way in which stress or diseases manifests in the physical body. To address the physical symptoms, without addressing the mental, emotional and energetic layers is an incomplete process.

During this retreat, Functional Medicine Integrative Nutritionist, Karin G. Reiter will review your blood work using a patient-centred approach to help you understand what foods and/or supplementation  you’ll need to take care of the body.  

Shaman and energy medicine practitioner, Johnson Chong, will help you tap into the energetic root causes of what needs to be eliminated psychically and energetically so that you can recharge the heart and soul. When mind, body and spirit are unified, you will feel a more truer sense of vitality.

Experiences to Look Forward on Retreat

This 5 day immersion is uniquely designed to allow you to learn, grow, replenish every single part of you. Check out what we have in store for you.

Daily Vinyasa Yoga

During these cohesive 75 min morning workshops, you will strengthen and lengthen the body through with standing postures, rotational postures, hip opening, backbending, arm balances and inversions to create a well rounded experience. These will be taught in an open level style with daily focuses as well as options and variations for all.

Soul Purpose Workshops

Moving through life without understanding your soul purpose on the deepest level is like a tree with weak roots. Your vitality and energy levels are directly related to how anchored you are in purpose. Contrary to popular belief, your purpose is not your career, though there may be parallels. Together, we will discover your unique purpose.

Shamanic Breathwork Journeys

Breathwork helps to prime the mind, body and energy systems to tap into your ability to entrain peace through meditation. You will also connect with your Spirit guides by invoking the sacred energies of the Andean medicine wheel. Drop into your inner guidance in expanded states of consciousness like you’ve never before.

Fire Healing Ceremony

The soul and psyche speak in the language of symbols. Connect to the beauty of the ancient fire ceremony that the high Andean Q’ero priests in the Peruvian mountains perform to release stagnant negative energy. You will replenish your chakra field and soul body to regain a sense of energetic restoration and vitality.

Blue Lotus Tea Ceremony

The Blue Lotus is a deeply mystical and complex medicinal plant – used as a sacrament by the ancient Egyptians in their religious and magical practices. The alkaloids of this plant help to create beautiful dream states along with a myriad of calming physical effects.

Psychedelic Ajna Light Therapy

The Ajna light is a meditation device that uses LED lights to stimulate a psychedelic DMT state of consciousness without ingesting hallucinogens. Oftentimes, practitioners report seeing a kaleidoscope of visions similar to when on a psychedelic trip, except without the physical side effects of nausea.

Sound Healing

Sound healing has ancient roots  in Egypt, India & China. Each cell in the human body has a unique vibration & frequency. Sound healing attunes specific vibrations to help the cells of the body to move from a state of stress and disease to a state of coherence.

Personalised Meal Plans

From the airport, you will take a 60 min taxi that will cost on average of $25 USD to the retreat venue. 

Standard Check-in time is at 15:00, and Check-out is at 12:00. Late Check-out util 18:00 is possible with an additional charge.

Retreats are a wonderful opportunity to fully re-connect to yourself and to recharge. However, we understand that if you are a parent with a young child, it may be difficult. We suggest you take one of the larger villas, like the Bay View with a Private  Pool or the Ocean View with the Private Pool and to bring a relative or someone to babysit so that you can get the most out of this retreat. The venue does provide infant cots for children under 4 (442 THB per night), and additional bed set ups for children between 4-12 (1250 THB per night).

We do not encourage going into town during the retreat, as that will undermine a lot of the work we will do together. There will be too much stimuli with noise, pollution, shopping, etc. If you want to explore the Thai towns, we recommend that you book some time before or after the retreat to enjoy the culture of the island. During the retreat, we want you to stay on retreat grounds. There will be a full day of activities, and there is plenty of beach for you to access.

Many people come to retreats to either deepen their bonds with friends, family members, partners. And many people do come alone with a spirit of adventure. Every group is unique and always the right fit. This choice is completely up to you.

Complimentary Wifi will be included. Though, we highly encourage that you switch off your mobile devices during the retreat so that you can get the most our of this important time for yourself.
