The Healing Tree welcomes you to their healing space, a 400-year-old farmhouse built of the local Maltese limestone, which has been renovated and kept in old-modern style, offering comfort, charm, and relaxation.

The house is set on three floors with two en-suite queen bedrooms, a healing therapy cave, a fully equipped kitchen, a living room, fireplace, and a private pool overlooking Comino and Malta. The farmhouse offers a warm, sensual, and idyllic sanctuary to re-generate and re-invent yourself.

You will find fresh lemon turmeric water available as well as fresh herbal teas. Both the indoor and outdoor living spaces are comfortable and inviting - a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere to be in and enjoy. The Healing Tree also shares their home with their two warm loving cats Molly and Azue.

Program

This retreat focuses on relaxation and offers you plenty of time and space to enjoy the island as well as pamper yourself. Daily outdoor private yoga classes, sunrises, and sunsets, visiting sacred feminine sites, and enjoying beaches and island life will help you rest, restore, and feel rejuvenated.

Allow yourself the opportunity to let go of the pain, suffering, and discomfort that has accumulated in the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Dive deep in your loving embrace and understanding of yourself and the life around you. Honor yourself through time and space in a safe, nurturing, guided healing sanctuary. Andrea will also be on hand for one-on-one individual and personal support and guidance if needed.

Your room is equipped with a queen bed, an en-suite bathroom, bathrobe, heater, fan, and use of the common area, kitchen, fireplace, and swimming pool. There is also a healing cave in which indoor therapies and yoga classes (depending on weather) are held.

Each personal retreat is tailored to what you need at a specific time through diet, yoga practices, guided meditations, healing therapies, guided walks, and free time. If the weather permits, you will spend most of your time outside with Hatha and Yin yoga sessions, nature walks, cooking, and enjoying the sun, water, and loving yourself. The schedule is flexible so the timings are not exact as they correspond to the flow of you, the guest, and the season.

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 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 unspoilt 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 ambience of complete peace.

Meals are eaten together, family-style with always an option for second helpings outside on the terrace (weather permitting), picnic-style, or indoors together.

Meals are prepared by Andrea or vegan chef Petra, who has extensive experience as a vegan raw chef here on the islands and cooking for retreats.
