DARE TO THRIVE RETREAT
A sneak peak our evolving retreat schedule.
Aliza may adapt things day-to-day as needed to support our group journey.
This retreat is one big beautiful ritual from start to finish, curated with care by Aliza to nurture your personal evolution and expansion. Each day we'll connect with a different intention, theme & element to support our group process. The first half (ish) of our week will focus on grounding, orienting, releasing & emptying. The half of our week together will be about rebuilding & dreaming a new dream, nourishing our delight & daring to thrive, together. This is going to be a magical & life-changing week, so, congratulations on finding your way here!
Day 1 (Feb 26)
ARRIVALS | OPENING CIRCLE, DANCE & DINNER
Arrive to Yacumama campus for a 2:00pm check in. Settle into your space, enjoy a coconut, take a dip in the river, shower, rest & unpack. Then meet Aliza in the Shala at 4:30 for our opening circle + dance! Dinner will be served at 7:00pm.
Day 2 (Feb 27)
GROUNDING IN OUR BODIES (ELEMENT: EARTH) | WATERFALLS, CACAO, DANCE, CEIBA TREE
Day 2 is all about orienting deeper to the facilities, the land, our group & our own bodies. Why are we here? What does it mean to thrive? Today is a day for making offerings to the land, clarifying our intentions & arriving more fully in our bodies together.
On Day 2, we'll get oriented to the property. We'll visit the giant Ceiba tree and bring her our prayers. We'll swim in the big mama river & waterfalls. On our nature excursions, we'll learn embodied dance practices like Authentic Movement & Continuum Movement. And we'll close out a magical day of nature & movement with a Cacao Ceremony & Ecstatic Dance.
Day 3 (Feb 28)
DARING TO THRIVE (ELEMENT: WATER) | MOVEMENT JOURNEYS & VISIT TO THE OCEAN
Why does it matter that we thrive? Today is all about identifying & claiming our authentic YES. Our ingredients to THRIVE. We'll spend our morning at the beach to connect more deeply with the waters on the planet, in our bodies & the truth of our own emotions. We'll practice giving ourselves full permission to follow what truly lights us up. To honor our authentic truth. Aliza & Halle will guide us through two powerful movement journeys on this day to support our work with the waters.
Day 4 (Feb 29)
CLEARING THE PATH (ELEMENT: FIRE) | TEMAZCAL (SWEAT LODGE)
Now that we've identified our yes, it's time to get clear on what's in the way. What’s stopping or blocking our thriving? What’s in the way? Today is our fire day, where we burn away all that no longer serves to make space for the new. On this day, we'll experience a traditional temazcal (sweat lodge) guided by Paloma. After a nourishing afternoon of rest, Aliza will guide us through a sunset visioning session to prepare us for our mushroom (microdose) ceremony.
Day 5 (Mar 1)
DREAMING A NEW DREAM (ELEMENT: AIR) | MUSHROOM MICRODOSE JOURNEY
Now that we've cleared the path, burned away the old & made space inside... it's time to dream. Who are we ready to become? What is the highest vision for our life - who are we in full thrive? Today is about filling the space you've created created with beauty & blessing. Ursula will guide us through a light (microdose) mushroom ceremony to support our dream weaving. Aliza will support the mushroom ceremony with movement, and there will be opportunities to play in nature. We'll have a sound healing either to close out this day or the day that follows.
Day 6 (Mar 2)
INTEGRATION & CELEBRATION (ELEMENT: SPACE) | REST, GENTLE MOVEMENT, MASSAGES, SOUND HEALING
Today we work with the element of space. This is our day to integrate, reflect, rest & celebrate. A good day for massages and likely another beach visit. Aliza will tune in to the energy of the group and offer a gentle movement journey that supports us with integration. In the evening, we'll have our closing ceremony to seal our container and send everyone off well.
Day 7 (Mar 3)
DEPARTURES | THE RETREAT ENDS & THE CEREMONY OF LIFE CONTINUES!
Because some people will have to travel on this day, we'll have had our closing ceremony the night before. Halle or Aliza will offer an optional early morning movement journey at 7:30 or 8:00am. Breakfast will be around 9:00am, with check out at 11:00am.
