Summer Yoga Retreat 2024

Journey of the Soul – Miraculous Entanglement

Monday 1st July – Sunday 7th July 2024
Peak District

Life is a mysterious schooling system of evolution and growth, with each experience bringing us closer to the essential secret of life – its opportunities to learn. It is only when we step back that we can see the bigger picture, realise the interconnectivity and guiding wisdom that is always present even when life seems the most surprising, challenging or even chaotic. 

Understanding the governing principles of creation and playing the game of life consciously comes with key attitudes that allow us to unlock the understanding of the lesson in each moment, and to bring forth the beauty of our soul, so that we can make our unique contribution to this world.  

Join this retreat to connect to your inner compass and your living soul, that will guide your steps on the path of your life, and turn both victories and failures into valuable and enriching lessons. 

Explore the nature of your soul through in-depth yogic and Tantric methods such as meditation and asana-s. Come for insightful workshops and talks, interactive exercises and beautiful social evenings.  

This retreat aims to nourish your soul and offer the tools you need for the adventure of life to become truly sublime. 

The frame of this retreat will be the journey of the soul through different stages
– from childhood to old age:

Creativity and the inner child 

The sublime adventure of life and the game of polarity 

The meaning of life and assimilating fundamental life lessons 

Values and principles as a way of aligning ones life 

Death conclusions and transcendence  

Why Miraculous Entanglement?

As life unfolds it passes through different stages – the different phases that we all pass through in a regular lifetime. We can consider the stages of life from the perspective of four distinct phases: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. Each with their specific characteristics, interests and accomplishments. 
 
But there is a greater degree of nuance to the life cycle of a human. We are all unique individuals that feel, think, and experience different things as we grow in years and in wisdom. And even though each stage of life comes with particular lessons, we do not always learn these lessons in a linear way. 
 
A dramatic shift in lifestyle often characterises the transition to a different stage of life. Such changes could include moving out of home, graduating, having children, or retiring. Each stage of life typically comes with challenges, and even crises that help us to gain qualities and to grow as human beings. 
 
The stages are not only characterised by outer circumstances, but rather they define an inner process – the lessons and experiences our soul needs to pass through in our lifetime. These lessons may or may not unfold in a linear fashion – sometimes we only learn the lessons specific to adolescence later in life. Each stage holds keys for the following stages – and when we stop and notice we can see the many choices, special moments and synchronicities that lead us to this specific stage with its specific lessons and gifts. The past points to the future, and our present is embedded as an unfolding path in our past. 
 
On this journey of self-discovery, we are never alone. We move through existence together, mysteriously entangled and playing crucial roles in each other’s learning and growth. 
While life might seem linear and organised, Einstein said that the process of entanglement is a “spooky action at a distance”, showing that particles interconnect beyond the speed of light, and that the space-time continuum is a flexible canvas of creation. A canvas we are all a part of, our destinies intertwined with each other, in the unfolding of our existence. 

Shifting the perspective on our life experiences we can start to navigate them in a conscious way, fully benefitting from the gifts they offer us. Not only do we start to evolve faster, but we also start to fulfil our potential, unfold our dreams and discover greater happiness and meaning in our lives.  

Why join the Summer Yoga Retreat?

The Summer Yoga Retreat is a wonderful opportunity for us to all to be together, learn and evolve together in a warm, friendly, nature filled ambiance. 

Outside the big cities, in the nourishing green just south of the Peak District, we can leave behind the stressors of daily life and offer ourselves a whole week of spiritual nourishment and soul awakening. 

We have been holding our annual Summer Yoga Retreat in the UK since 2005, and each year it offers many revelations to those who participate. Our teachers all have 10-20 years of experience as practitioners and teachers in Yoga and Tantra, and so will guide you with expertise throughout the retreat.

We will practise yoga together, meditate, eat, laugh, dance and participate in valuable workshops, seminars and experiences to quench our spiritual existence.

Testimonials from past Summer Yoga Retreats

The retreat made me get in touch, experience and feel part of the wonderful divine world we live in and sharing this time with so many beautiful souls made it even more special.

Organisers have done magnificent job, everything was thought through. They made magical week for us. Teachings were very insightful and profound. Together with evening programs were one of the best part, something that made impact on me beyond the retreat!

“The teachings I eagerly received and the Souls I was granted to meet, have brought me precious insights. They deeply inspired me to continuously practice “The Art of Living from the Soul”. I dare say that now, 11 months after last year’s Summer Retreat, I still follow my intention we were invited to set at the closure of a wonderful week. I can also lucidly recall to this day to have promised to keep my sparkle alive ✨🫧 And although life hasn’t been a continuous party in the past year at all, both my intention & promise are still alive! Such a blessing!”
