Feel Like a Creative Retreat

Getting Creative with Arts and Crafts

Getting Creative with Arts and Crafts

What are the Retreats all about ?

Too often we’re afraid to try because we’re afraid we’ll make mistakes but when we allow ourselves to be creative, to let our imagination run beyond our fears

We tap into our intuition

The more we tap into our intuition

The more we are in alignment with our purpose and that part of ourselves that sees the big picture like a bird’s eye view who sees on the other side of the hill what’s in store for us

Here you will take a break from the chaos and hectic pace of civilization, you will be able to recharge your internal batteries, disconnect from civilization, reconnect to nature, yourself and each other and this just a jeep ride away from the hostels in Armenia and Salento

You will meditate, explore and experiment with your own creativity, work on your subconscious mind through understanding the chakra system and the power of gratitude, get a clearer vision of your purpose through coaching and exercises, you will flush your body with family style dinners cooked over a bonfire and lemon cleanse

 

Retreats Overview

Tap Into Your Intuition

In a left brain society where emphasis is on logic, rational decision making, the right part of our brain is atrophied. When we develop our imagination, we develop the right side of our brain which controls our imagination, our intuition, the part of ourselves that sees the big picture, we tap into our internal power

The Art of Being Grateful

Our conscious minds and subconscious minds influence our world and the lives we create or wish to create so learning to mater the mind seems to be essential if we are to create and mold a life that reflects our wishes and desires

 

“You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes every day unless you're too busy. Then you should sit for an hour”

This is not your 4 AM hard core Vipassana meditation

Meditation can be unsettling at first and just like a muscle needs to be worked on and developed with time

So we set aside some time to quiet down our minds and stay in the void for as long as we feel comfortable

Then we try to stay a little bit longer beyond the comfort zone

Finally each person exits the practice when they feel they are no longer in the zone

Buddha was asked –

What have you gained from meditation?

He replied “Nothing”

However, let me tell you what I have lost

 

Anger

Anxiety

Depression

Insecurity

Fear

 
 

 

You will learn the basics of Astrology, how to read your chart, how to read ephemeris to read transits, what each house means, what each sign is associated with

You will need to have your exact time of birth. Id you do not have it, ask your mom, I am pretty sure she remembers the time her bundle of joy came into the world :), you will also find it on your birth certificate

Bringing Awareness to Our Subconscious

We are more than just our bodies and we are much more than what we see. We are energy fields that vibrate at a certain frequency. Our eyes and senses do not see these frequencies just as we do not see or sense infra red lights, wifi emissions, radio or television . Yet they do exists. We influence the vibrations we emit by how we feed our bodies and minds. Working and understanding the Chakra system allows us to understand where imbalances in our lives come from and how to remedy them

 

Finding Your Purpose

Most of us don’t know how to build a computer but we enjoy the benefits of it, we enjoy what it allows us to do, it is an awesome tool at our disposal. Astrology is the same. Planets are constantly moving and affecting the energy field of the Earth. We live in that Energy Field. Think about it, the Moon is able to influence oceans. Now think about this, we are more than 80% made of water …. Astrology is a map of how the planets were positioned at the time of our birth and how they affected us, they reflect how we saw the world around us at this particular time and place, they reflect the characteristics we embody, they reflect the challenges we will have to face, the lessons that need to be learned and the potentials we may evolve into if we do the work laid out for us. As the planets move every day, they influence this map on a regular basis activating certain areas that need to be worked on and assimilated before we can move on to the next phase. If we do not then we repeat the class and the same events will continue to show up in our lives again and again until we pass the class and are able to move on to the next grade

 

Cleanse and Detox

In a left brain society where emphasis is on logic, rational decision making, the right part of our brain is atrophied. When we develop our imagination, we develop the right side of our brain which controls our imagination, our intuition, the part of ourselves that sees the big picture, we tap into our internal power


Dream - Explore - Discover

Creativity can be expressed in many various ways

  • It can be expressed in painting, drawing
  • It can be expressed in writing and hand lettering
  • It can be expressed in music
  • I can be expressed in cooking
  • It can be expressed in photography
  • It can be expressed in the stillness of meditation using the power of our thoughts to create a new version of ourselves, a new expression of ourselves, an outcome we build with our focus
  • It can be expressed in gardening
  • It can be expressed in chopping and carving wood, turning bamboo into incense holders, candle holder, music instruments
  • It can be expressed in crafting macrame bracelets, dream catchers

 

What matters most is that we express ourselves in a way we never have before because it felt uncomfortable, uneasy or unfamiliar, to experiment the creative process

What should i expect to gain from this retreat ?

Astrology Coaching

When you start to study and understand astrology, you enter into a fascinating world. Most of us don’t know how to build a computer and how to technically make it work but we all enjoy what we are able to do with it. Astrology is the same, it is a powerful tool once we start to know how to use it. You discover so much about yourself, where you’re coming from, where you’re heading.

You will learn the basics of Astrology, how to read your chart, how to read ephemeris to read transits, what each house means, what each sign is associated with

You will need to have your exact time of birth. Id you do not have it, ask your mom, I am pretty sure she remembers the time her bundle of joy came into the world :), you will also find it on your birth certificate

What You Can Expect From Me

I am a life long student, seeker, searcher, fundamentally passionate about the workings of the mind, the human psyche, its power, its resourcefulness, its capabilities, figuring out where we come from, why we’re here and what are we supposed to do, what is our mission as a human species, how did we evolve, what is our goal, what is our mission.

I have studied philosophy, psychology, astrology. metaphysics for many years, touched on quantum physics.

My goal is to share this with you

I believe in becoming the best version of ourselves which oftentimes means to first bring light to the subconscious mind and what lurks in the shadows

I believe we have massively chosen to incarnate in this area so we could bring the necessary changes so we could evolve into a new era, I mean, let’s face it, we cannot continue this way if we want to have a tomorrow worth living for. I believe it is our job and our duty to bring about this new age

I wish for you to have light bulb moments while you’re here

I wish for you to get insights about your life, your dreams, your passion

I wish for you to get a clearer idea of where to go next, what to do, what steps to take to follow your passion

The Environment

This place is magical and not only because I love it but it has triggered changes in some who have come here, having them face and come to terms with lingering issues or getting clear on what directions they wanted their lives to be heading, changing their majors once they went back home to study

The average year long temperature is about 22-25 degrees celsius so we fully take advantage of the outdoors

There are only 2 seasons here, what we call spring and winter aka rainy season

No noise but jungle sounds

Beautiful hikes and creeks to swim in

A 45 minute hike will take you to the small village of Quebrada Negra where you will find a bakery, wifi spot

To build an environment where we feel free to experiment with our creative potentials. To allow ourselves to make mistakes and then try again

A place to reconnect with the Simple Life

Bamboo huts, jungle showers

A jeep ride away from Armenia, the land is located on a cacao farm where you will have the opportunity to recharge your batteries, ground yourself in nature, meditate, work on your inner potentials

 
 
 
 

Sustainable Living

Learning to live on the land and become self reliant and self sufficient as much as possible revealed itself to be quite a challenge, especially when you’ve only lived in cities your entire life.

But as time went on and things got more organized, I wouldn’t have it any other way although there is still a lot to be done.

I learn about growing food, to build with local materials, to turn recycled items into arts and crafts, to harvest rain water, build a beer can solar panel, a solar oven, a rocket mass oven, natural fridge, bicycle washing machine and more …

Next Retreats

What if I can't make it on those specific dates ?

Lemon Cleanse

In the morning, before you eat or drink anything, have a warm cup of water with freshly squeezed lemons picked right off the tree. This cleanses and flushes your system

Homegrown cacao

There are many cacao trees spread throughout the land which need to be picked up and processed from time to time. If you’re here when they are ripe, you are more than welcome to check it out for yourself

Relax

On the blog, you will see a post about documentaries I think are really worth watching, as well as a post with a list of books worth reading. When you are here, you can watch them directly and read many ebooks. Many are thought provoking and challenge the status quo. Take away the information that feels right, listen to your gut and your own evolution. I also have a physical library to choose from

HIKE

Follow the trail as a loop for 2-3 hours

Walk down to the nearby village – 45 minutes

Walk to Cordoba – 12 KM

There is a beautiful cascade with fish. I am setting things up with one of my neighbor so he can take you on a tour
