The farmhouse offers a warm, sensual, and idyllic sanctuary to regenerate and reinvent yourself. The Healing Tree provides fresh towels and linens, complimentary toiletries, bathrobe, yoga mats, tea and coffee, bottled water, and a hairdryer.

Program

Unplug. No phone. Time to hear yourself think. Re-discover or discover for the first time your personal truth at this moment as you listen, acknowledge, accept, and embrace the world within you.

Since the world around you is merely a reflection of the world within you, it is not so much what happens in the world but how it affects you. What is the inner dialogue that you continue to water day after day? When you listen to yourself, are you what you think? Who is it that is speaking? The voice within is your friend or enemy or both?

Allow your thoughts to inspire you. Gather inspiration of the purest and cleanest form as you spend the majority of your time together walking and trekking in nature. Allow your conversation to be spoken and heard and shared with nature as you explore and traverse sacred sites, crystal lands, and fossilized lands.

If you are looking for answers around you, let this retreat answer your question. Find the answer yourself within you and also confirmed by that of nature. It may be through a bird, a crystal you unearth, a sunset, whatever way it presents itself to you, allow and gift yourself to the opportunity to re-discover your power that you had the answer all along.

You will know

  • How to step into the place of reception and feel the ease and security of life
  • How to heal the self, others, and the collective
  • How to sit in the embrace of the heart and realize that all conditions fall
  • The Importance of self-healing

You will

  • Experience the space where you're ordinary identify and perception of the self dissolves
  • Be guided how to access and relish your own power source
  • Reach the place of no-mind where all identity of self and other, karma, duality, and the ego cease to exist
  • Experience and transcend the imaginary line that is believed to separate the self and the other
  • Break free of the tennis match of duality within you and see your inner experience of reality reflected externally to you through the senses of the body, feeling, perception, intention, consciousness

Andrea Ridgway

Location

This retreat will take place in the middle of the Mediterranean sea on the island of Gozo in the village of Qala. Gozo, which means "joy", is a little spit of land sitting in the Mediterranean Sea with a unique rocky coastal landscape, waters so crystal-clear, and the sky so bright blue that you’ll have to rub your eyes to believe what you are seeing.

Gozo is the second largest island of the Maltese Archipelago and is an ideal destination for those who treasure a slow, relaxed rhythm of life and cherish the unspoiled countryside and being close to the sea. Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside. The beauty of surrounding nature all around create an ambiance of complete peace.
