ILLUMINATED HEART RETREAT IN SPAIN WITH JESSICA – 2018 (Dates tbc) – El Molino Del Rio Hotel, Benablon, Caravaca de la Cruz, 30410, Murcia, Spain

When we truly understand and connect with our true and natural essence, our inner being, we experience the ecstatic joy of living in this physical reality. This retreat is aimed at getting you out of your mind and be-coming at one with your true divine self. This retreat will offer you the ultimate mind, body, soul experience. From start to finish you will have the opportunity to relax, be inspired and energised through meditation, yoga, connection to nature and the group – ‘Awakened not stirred’. You will leave the retreat with an open heart and with a deeper understanding and awareness of your Divine path that lies ahead. Join Jessica for a very special four-day retreat with yoga in rural Spain. The workshop will connect and open your heart to living more fully in the presence of your Divine Self.

Carmen Alvarez Sandoval
Carmen Alvarez Sandoval is an experienced yoga and mindfulness teacher who has been practising with clients for many years. Carmen has this to say about the retreat. “The purpose of my session is the participants feel relaxed and awake, more connected with the body and energized. Sometimes we feel disconnected from our bodies or reject or fight against some aspect of ourselves, including our body (because nothing exists outside of it and everything happens within it).
Even sometimes it may seem that our body is our worst enemy. If we want to improve our lives, we need to improve the relationship we have with our body. This we will achieve through body-mind work dialogue, energy breathing, position, stability, balance, joint elasticity and drop-relaxation. We will use different types of techniques from Psychology, Breathing techniques, Stretching, Chi-Kung, Meditation and Yoga Asanas”.
