SOUL ALIVE RETREAT - Tarifa, Southern Spain

17th - 24th November 2018

When too many plates are spinning it's hard to decide which ones to drop. 

Making time for yourself is both a rare luxury and a much needed necessity.  

SOUL ALIVE allows you to take a step back to reassess  your life through creativity, mindfulness and laughter.

You'll be part of a small, confidential group in a safe and nurturing environment.

Everything you need is taken care of, which leaves you free to focus on yourself and enjoy your new friends. 

No telephone, no emails, no internet - unplug, switch off and open up for 7 whole days. 

Get out of the fray and enjoy some quality time in glorious sunshine for reflection
Slow it down and take a break from technology, your job, the children, your partner
Relax and explore some beautiful natural landscapes and soak up the local history and culture.
Regroup from an uber-busy lifestyle and declutter a busy mind.

SOUL ALIVE RETREAT takes you on a transformational journey.  Expertly-facilitated by Mary Nondé - The Creativity Coach.  Mary is there to create a safe container while group camaraderie is there for support and encouragement too.

We have the exclusive use of Villa La Pena - a spacious and secluded luxurious property on the southern most tip of the Iberian peninsula. The retreat is fully inclusive with the exception of your return flights.

SEVEN-DAY ESCAPE
 If you've been operating at full throttle, the SOUL ALIVE RETREAT is the time to re-focus your attention inwards and listen to the wisdom of your heart.  This quiet voice can so easily get drowned out in a frantic outer world, yet it's the best barometer you have to gauge your well-being.   Each facilitated movement session, creative arts workshop and daily excursion is designed to awaken your creativity further and build on your previous discoveries.   

The programme begins in advance of the Retreat to prepare you for the best outcome. The pre-Retreat telephone coaching to help you be mindfully aware of where you're starting from and your best outcomes. 

If you are able to attend the Vision Board Workshop before the Retreat that's advisable and start to build a bridge between your deepest desires and their manifestation.  If you've made a Vision Board before it doesn't matter because you'll discover what's alive in you presently and calling for your attention that you might be ignoring.   

You can also opt for post-Retreat coaching to consolidate your discoveries and integrate these insights into your daily life.

VILLA LA PENA

We have the exclusive use of Villa La Pena - a spacious and secluded luxury property on the edge of Tarifa.  Nestled between mountain and sea, it enjoys an elevated position with panoramic views over miles of sandy beach.   Facilities include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, an indoor studio and an outdoor movement platform, and a massage room.

Tarifa itself is an old Andalusian town, both historically and geographically significant, on the southerly tip of Spain.  Here the Mediterranean sea meets the Atlantic, providing a haven for dolphins and whales and a playground for wind and kite surfers.  The area is famous for its abundance of high-quality fresh fish, plentiful fruit and vegetables, and year-round sunshine.

Facing the Straits of Gibraltar, Tarifa looks east towards the Rif Mountains and West to Tangiers in Morocco, which is only a 30-minute ferry journey away.  The daily excursions however are only about a half an hour's drive away from the Villa.

PAST CLIENTS

"I really enjoyed my time away and appreciated the amount of effort and time Mary gave us.  I came back with a more decisive attitude and I can now see the direction my life is taking.  I'm no longer afraid of what's to come, which had left me in a state of inertia prior.  Mary gave of herself 100%.  She helped me to feel as free as a bird at times and allowed me to tap into the creative side I didn't even know I had.  I was very grateful."
