Alchemy of the 5 Elements
The Inner Flame
20th – 22nd September 2019
At Armonia Alpujarra Healing Retreat Centre, Lanjaron, Spain

A weekend’s practise focusing on the Fire Element, as we transition from the heat of Summer into early Autumn.
The elements – Fire, Earth, Air, Water & Space – are found in all ancient traditions and have guided human beings for millennia.
Every element has a question… Fire asks “What do I choose?”

Our daily Asana & Cleansing practises will focus on transformation through Fire & Water elements.
We will practise Bandha, Candle Kriya & Sankalpa, in rituals that reunite these energies with your present life needs.
This is a unique opportunity to dive deeply into the language of the elements & see life from a fresh point of view.

We will enjoy idyllic Lanjaron, where the healing waters have been celebrated for generations on the Mountain of the Sun – Sulayr.  Armonia Alpujarra is a peaceful healing centre, surrounded by flora and the bright energies of Yair and Ziza, whose healing treatments are on offer during the weekend.  They also support us with heart warming foods, that are as beautiful visually, as they are delicious.
