Who is guiding you




Breathwork & Chakra Retreat

We invite you to come on a deep journey with us.
From the earth to the sky, from below to above, from the root to the crown.

Together we explore the chakra system, starting with our roots, connecting to the earth and our foundation, rising up through our creativity and sensuality, exploring our inner fire, discovering our true inner warrior, into the center of our heart, where we learn to give and receive and be compassionate with our inner child, up into the field of expression and communication and then connecting to our visions, peace and silence.

This program is specially designed for you to move through the chakras, where you can let yourself be guided into and held in a safe space, where you can become loose, explore and expand into a beautiful space of connection. The connection to yourself.

On this weekend retreat you will be guided into different powerful practices such as:

- Drumming,
- Body painting ritual
- Water blessing
- Fire ritual
- Mandala breathwork
- Voice activation, Expression
- Blindfolded Dance
...and a lot of space to connect with each other ☺️

Healing, transforming, sharing, celebrating and remembering the flow of love and connection within yourself, the community and mother earth - this is what we wish for all of us during our time together.



The more conscious you breathe the more connected and aware you become.

Breathwork uses a simple technique, called “conscious connected breath”, a profound technique that deeply supports the clearing away of old energies, conditioning, negative thoughts/patterns and emotions.
It helps us to open up the doors for new possibilities and a greater consciousness. If done properly it is a “gateway” to your inside world, to truly see who you are with all layers of a human being, emotionally, physically and energetically. And yet the outcome is always a surprise, as we are all individuals caring different stories and backgrounds. The main result is pure presence & awareness, which eventually leads us into a fuller acceptance of what is.

Olivia & Mela will guide you safely into this beautiful space together.
