The winter season draws us in to its cloak of darkness. Many of us may find ourselves wishing these months away, waiting for the light of spring and summer to return.
But winter has such richness within her darkness. In the magic dark of winter we not only have the opportunity to rest in natures natural ebb to the flow, we also have the time to tend to the stoke the fire of creative flow within us.
Now is the time for inspiration to be nourished, as we light candles, read poetry, listen to music and connect to the source within.
This special retreat will be dedicated to the Magic Dark of Winter. Each morning will start with Mediation, Chanting and Kriya practices. Followed by Asana and Pranayama. In the afternoons, we will meditate again, read poetry and discuss yogic philosophy and its modern application to our daily lives.

We love the meditating effect working with clay has! Just like in yoga there is no pressure, you can enjoy the process. If you have experience already or not – it is always nice to join the workshop. Maybe it is going to be a new inspiration you take home with you and find a ceramics course back home?!
During this workshop we will learn how to make slabs to later stamp leaves or flowers and make a piece with it. There will be foliage available but you can collect your own.
This workshop is suitable for everyone, as no prior experience is necessary. All materials are included, and you will be able to take your piece home.
If you want to explore your creativity and connect it with nature this is for you!
