Self-Love and Self-compassion Retreat in Mallorca
7–10 November 2022
Welcome to this yoga and meditation retreat where you will have the precious opportunity to explore and swim in self-love and self-compassion! The deep intention with this retreat is that you will be able to explore how to become more compassionate and forgiving towards yourself both on the yogamat, the meditation cushion and in life.
There is a tremendous power in treating ourselves with kindness and compassion which is often misunderstood. In our modern times there is a strong belief that we need to push and self-criticize to motivate ourselves, to create change, and develop. If we are used to this approach in our daily life, we easily bring the same attitude of striving and harshness to the yoga mat. Simply because that is the known way of operating. We might not be aware of that there is another way of doing, or rather being, life.
In this retreat you are warmly welcome into exploring another way! Self-compassion means that we are kind and supportive to ourselves when we are confronting challenges and setbacks. It includes self-acceptance but goes beyond as it includes an active element of self-care, of really wanting the best for ourselves. Research has shown that treating ourselves with compassion and kindness actually have tremendous benefits including: people that are self-compassionate are more tolerant with themselves, less afraid of failure and therefore less afraid of trying new things; self-compassion gives the emotional support to create desired changes, and people who are practicing self-compassion to a higher degree takes responsibility for their actions.
During this retreat self-compassion and self-love will be weaved into all of the practices. Instead of constantly treating yourself as someone that needs to improve and become ”better”, you are invited into a world where your human imperfection is embraced.
You will live and eat like a Queen or King at this little jewel Cal Reiet (more info below). That food that is served is among the best we ever had! All food is vegetarian/vegan and filled with love, care, nourishment and creativity. You can read more about it here
The purpose with self-compassion is not to become ”perfect”, but rather to be allowed to remain perfectly imperfect. It is about becoming friends with the one we already ARE.
Practices during the retreat includes:
Slow flow yoga
Breathing through breathwork practice and pranayama
Workshops including reflections around the themes
(might be slightly changed)
