Waterfall Spirit

The Happiness Retreat - Waterfall Spirit / Seliana
An Invitation to Empower your Inner Light!
4 days - 3 nights

Would you like to celebrate the Full Moon and the Autumnal Equinox in a stunning waterfall plunging down from the sky? To purify and heal by creating a pilgrimage with all the ‘falling leaves ‘ (that don’t serve you anymore,) calling the Autumn in the abundant Forrest? To re-discover your inner child singing with birds, air, scents, textures and sights around you?

Lets honor this amazing seasonal transition, kindling our inner light of wisdom and courage at The Happiness Retreat / Waterfall Spirit.

The Happiness Retreat - Waterfaall Wisdom - Moonrise in Regreen Seliana

And yes! We will nurture our bodies with Yoga and Impulse Dance at the beautiful natural-build Maloka but we will also take the time to align with the Waterfall Spirit that represents Yin and Yang and is considered the symbol of impermanence. We will open ourselves to the spiritual possibilities of fall, reconnecting with the seasons as we inhale the continuous water flow sound and exhale the whispering voice of the leaves. The great wisdom of nature will impart to us.

Our Practices

Yoga

The Happiness Retreat - Apostolia Papadamaki - Yoga Practice

In our Hatha Yoga practice - a unifying blend of Breath, Asanas, Anatomy & Meditation - we will focus on grounding the base (1st) chakra, deepen our knowledge for our pelvis, liberate the hip joints and enjoy standing strongly in our two feet. We will aim to root like the Trees and free our upper body to connect with the Sun.

ImPulse Dance

The Happiness Retreat - Apostolia Papadamaki - Impulse Dance Practice

We begin by grounding ourselves, in the safe space of a circle, shaking and pulsing to release tension, increase blood circulation and connect with the cosmic energy of the Earth. As we pulse in different levels, our breath expands into sound and our voice can be liberated. We enter a state of profound ancestral connection and our shaking movements awaken the sacredness of our body and manifest the power of its expression.

Sharing Circle

The Happiness Retreat - Waterfall Spirit - Sharing Circle Practice and Fire Ritual

We will sit in circle as a tribe, holding a safe and sacred space for one another. We will share our intentions for new beginnings and set the foundation for our soul to give us what we need at the present moment in time.
