WORKING WITH

THE SHADOW

AN ANCIENT YOGA PRACTICE

FOR PROFOUND HEALING

In 2018 we will offer 7 residential retreats in our centre in Tuscany, Italy,
as well as a number of week-end workshops in major European cities.
Whereas the workshops are designed to introduce newcomers to this ancient lineage,
the retreats build on one another, following a map, or path,
that will guide participants through a journey of magic & wonder
that commences in the abstraction of the ethereal body,
and terminates in the manifested power of animal rawness.

AWAKENING THE CHAKRAS.

REBUILDING THE VERY FABRIC OF OUR BEING.

Yogis understand the Chakras to be energy centres responsible for storing our life impressions, making up the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual fabric of our very being. Unresolved energies in the chakras can lead to all kinds of difficulties from physical illnesses to destructive self-sabotaging patterns of behaviour, particularly in our relational life… READ MORE

INTO THE LAND OF DREAMS.

A JOURNEY THROUGH THE SUBCONSCIOUS.

Dreams are a gateway to a magical universe that, although might not always see, has its own life that is right there just beneath the threshold of awareness. There is a great potential in our dreams for unfolding our destiny and bringing us face to face with our karmic life themes… READ MORE

THE LABYRINTH OF THE MIND.

MAKING OUR WAY BACK TO THE ALTAR OF THE HEART.

Life strives to show us time and time again that the Altar of the Heart is more than a mere sentiment, but a living and beating truth. Yet the Mind’s labyrinth of thoughts & doubts can be so deeply encoded in our being as to keep us out of Love’s reach. The yogic spirit is that of the romantic soul who never lets the Altar of the Heart leave his or her sight… READ MORE

THE WAY OF SHIVA.

AT PEACE WITH THE FATHER. AT EASE WITH THE WORLD.

Breaking free from conventions does not entail becoming a rebel, but it does require confronting the power dynamics that might have been keeping us in a state of subordination in our life, including our social and intimate relationships.
Bringing into question the archetypal figure of the Father – ruler and patriarch – becomes a prerequisite to venture on a journey of self-discovery towards a more authentic self… READ MORE

SERPENT GODDESS OF POWER.

AWAKENING THE KUNDALINI & SHEDDING OLD SKINS.

Through engaging in powerful yogic practices of The Goddess Kundalini-Shakti we shall connect to our creative centre and watch the spiralling effect of power dancing our life into being. The powerful practices of the Shamanic Hatha line within the context of a healing group process will bring about the stirring of the primal and raw life force – known to the yogis as Kundalini-Shakti… READ MORE

27 SEPTEMBER - 01 OCTOBER

THE WITCH'S CHAULDRON.

RECLAIMING YOUR PERSONAL POWER.

The Witch has perhaps become a derogatory & disputed term for the forces that stand on the outskirts of the rational. Yet she is a mother of the hearth, a mistress of story-telling and the beholder of healing secrets. The process of divorcing the divine father from the earthly mother has resulted in the feminine aspect of our personality being suppressed, both in women & men, leading to all kind of imbalances, inward & outward, individual & collective. The feminine night-forces that bring chaos and creativity together are the energies we will work with on this retreat… READ MORE

02 - 06 NOVEMBER

MARK OF THE BEAST.

HONOURING THE ANIMAL WITHIN.

The Beast is a creature of power and beauty, but a caged beast can either rebel and manifest in destructive patterns of rage and frustration, putting up a fight on life. Conversely it might lie down in apathy, giving up on life altogether. The resultant suffering that ensues from either way is not how it has to be! Together we will embark on a journey to reconnect to the often forgotten and secret powers of the animals that live within us… READ MORE
