Stay in Award Winning Rustic Farmhouse

Wild Thyme Organic Farm and Eco Retreat are situated on the edge of a peaceful village in northeastern Bulgaria. Surrounded by rolling hills and sunflower fields, a stay here is a step back in time. Your home will be a traditional Bulgarian solar-powered farmhouse built using age-old methods in stone and mudbrick with a timber roof.

The exposed beams and mud plaster give this space an organic rustic feel, making it a comfortable place to unwind and share meals. All but one of the rooms are twins (doubles for couples, or single supplement room), but with plenty of living space, as well as outside areas with hammocks, benches and a hanging bed, this is the perfect environment to unwind and relax.

The yoga/meditation space opens onto the garden. Wild Thyme was awarded the People's Choice Tripadvisor award for the best guesthouse in Bulgaria in 2015 and 2016 and has been described in the UK Guardian newspaper as 'a labor of love and ingenuity'.

Program

''Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny - he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally, you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.'' OSHO

Claire Sulochani is an experienced Reiki practitioner, teacher trainer and meditation facilitator. She is also trained in family constellations; art therapy; and Ayurvedic and deep tissue massage.

She and her husband Chris moved to Bulgaria nine years ago and set up an organic smallholding and eco-retreat. She has been offering reiki training at Wild Thyme since 2013. The course combines OSHO meditation with Reiki training which wonderfully complements each other.

Reiki training

Reiki is a hands-on healing method which can be used to treat yourselves or others. It can help you de-stress and go deeper into yourselves. It can help you open your hearts and reconnect to your centers.

You can gain new perspectives to release any negativities and open yourselves to more joy and love. It is through this process that you can raise your own energy vibrations and that of all around you.

Participants will learn about the history and theory of Reiki; the 5 Reiki principles and receive their Reiki level 1 attunement. This is a wonderful process which opens you to more energy flow.

You will learn about grounding your energy and through meditations and activities, you will learn how to feel and work with Reiki energy so you can become a channel for healing yourself, friends and family.

You will also explore the chakra system and its role in transmitting energy through your bodies. The chakras are connected to your emotional and physical well being and you will learn how to clean and clear this system, allowing more energy to flow through you.

Reiki is available to everyone and has been taught to tens of thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds. It can be used for your own benefit as well as the benefit of family, friends, pets, and more.

It is a very simple technique to learn and is not dependent on having any prior experience with healing, meditation or any other kind of training. After completing Reiki Level 1, students can self treat with Reiki and also treat family and friends.

It is recommended that students wait six months before doing Reiki level 2. After Reiki level 2, students will be able to send Reiki over distance, use the Reiki symbols and in principle, start professional practice. It is recommended to wait until after completing Reiki Master level before treating people professionally.

OSHO Meditations

The Indian mystic OSHO, created a large number of meditations to help people move deeper into meditation. He said that the modern mind was too busy to be expected to sit quietly in meditation, as was the practice in Buddha's time.

He devised a number of active meditations which include a stage of movement, including jogging, jumping or dancing, to help release blockages from the system, before sitting in silent meditation. These meditations are powerful in helping you move and transform energy blocks. Meditations on the course may include:

  • OSHO Mandala meditation
  • OSHO Natraj meditation
  • OSHO Kundalini meditation
  • OSHO Dynamic meditation
  • OSHO Chakra breathing meditation
  • OSHO Chakra sounds meditation
