Gathering starts on Friday at 18:00, and after initial introduction and dinner we are retreating to a space dedicated to us only, so we can create a female circle by candlelight and a starry sky. We open a sacred space where together we begin the healing process of each and every one of us.
During this first night, through specially design group-games we get to know each other better, we connect with each other and start awakening our femininity, wisdom and love. Each of us sets a goal for herself, delving on the most important issue of that moment in her life. This is where we create a base for the rest of our healing journey.
We start the morning with a balancing yoga session and guided meditation. Then, after breakfast we prepare to reconnect with the woman in us in Barac’s caves, following a wild, adrenaline challenge to face our fears.
During our time in the cave, which is reserved for us only, we sink to the core, supported by the powerful female energy of Mother Earth. We awaken our femininity, inner strength and power, we connect with our deepest source of intuition.
By consciously walking to the challenge activity, we re-examine ourselves, our lives, the circumstances we are in, as well as the challenges we encounter. We can thus clearly see everything that limits, spurs, scares, angers us … and we step forward with one clear intention: set ourselves free!
Accepting the challenge we make our first steps on the new path we are building for ourselves – we release fears, nonsupporting beliefs, disagreeing thoughts and learn how to be strong, self-confident and powerful, courageous, yet gentle and feminine. To move onto this new path in life by fulfilling our deepest desires and unspoken dreams.
After returning from this eventful day, we will have obtained the power from within the interior of the Earth and freed ourselves of the old, stagnant energy. We return to our hotel for a relaxing Saturday night. In this feminine circle we exchange impressions, wishes for the future, and continue to heal and strengthen ourselves with meditations and visualizations.
Saturday night is the night of re-birth. During the evening gathering, we will open the doors to new possibilities, inner fire, spontaneity, purpose… to a new life.
The next morning, after breakfast, we head towards the lakes and the magical forest. Consciously walking the paths to the Virgin Forest, a magnificent prehistoric forest in the heart of Plitvice National Park, we connect with the goddesses in us. Hear the primordial call, and receive the blessing and inspiration for all that is in front of you.
On the river banks of Plitvice Lakes, through yoga, we focus our attention and breath, connecting with our bodies while grounding ourselves with deep roots in Mother Earth. Understand the messages that your body is sending you and allow it to restore your overall health and strength with these simple techniques. Sisters and mothers together in peace, love and understanding – indulging in the full femininity in the embrace of the elements.
With a group meditation, the final ceremony energizes our journey to an end. We close this sacred space together now, born anew, carrying the wisdom and messages we received in our soul.
Note: during all the workshops and get-together every sharing is completely voluntary, no obligations. Your personal experience and healing is the primary thread that leads to your healing. You can choose to completely keep to yourself your thoughts and feelings, you are safe in this sacred circle where all is accepted.
