Dates: Monday 09 August 2021 - Thursday 12 August 2021

corinna botoulas2020sonja dyasonDiscover your intrinsic Nature and Nurture through the planets and stars in this informative Astrological workshop. Learn how the cycles of the celestial world affect you personally, and how your unique blueprint – your Astrological birth chart - can help you live to your fullest potential. Find your strengths, challenges and which areas of life to empower and enable us and live with greater equanimity and awareness. Astrology is an ancient, powerful, well-tested and insightful tool to foster emotional and mental growth and transformation. The retreat will focus on the planets in their signs and houses, experiential astrology, the aspects they make to each other, the elements and modalities they represent and the importance of the position of the sun and moon in conjunction with the cycles of life. In addition, enjoy a variety of holistic, intuitive and nurturing massages on offer by Sonja, who with her healing touch can assist in restoring and maintaining your body's natural equilibrium as you integrate your new insights. There will be stargazing sessions, meandering in the labyrinth and sunrise qigong.
