THE SPIRITED SUMMER RETREAT

You are invited to spend some quality time with your spirit this summer at the Spirited Retreat from 19 – 23 August 2018. Celebrated spiritual teachers and healers Robyn Silverton and Rebecca Campbell will be leading this sacred retreat designed to leave you feeling connected, replenished, nurtured, aligned and completely in tune with your spirit.

SPEND SOME TIME WITH YOUR SPIRIT

Spend a luxurious four days and evenings of filling up your well in nature, enjoying delicious food, listening to the whispers of your soul, letting go with light body work, tuning in by meditating and chanting, stretching your body with yin yoga, joining in ceremonies and circle work, connecting and laughing with like minded people… all to assist you in rebalancing, tuning in and aligning your life to your soul.

We will be gathering at the exquisite Mandali retreat centre in Northern Italy. Built on a hilltop, cradled by the mountains, overlooking the breathtaking Lake Orta (nearest airport is Malpensa (Mxp), Milano International airport).

REPLENISH YOUR MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT

You will leave with a replenished body, a still mind, a full and open heart, a happy spirit and an action plan to live your most spirited life. All meals, accommodation and teaching sessions are included in the retreat price, all you need to take care of are your flights and transport to Mandali in Italy.

YOUR TEACHERS

Rebecca Campbell is a celebrated spiritual teacher and bestselling author of Light Is The New Black, Rise Sister Rise and the Work Your Light Oracle. Rebecca teaches internationally and draws on ancient feminine, shamanic and bhakti wisdom lineages in her work. A workshop with Rebecca is heart opening, activating, deeply soulful, empowering, down to earth and fun. In 2015 she was awarded the ‘Promising New Talent’ award by the Mind Body Spirit Festival in London. In 2016 Rebecca received ‘Emerging Voice’ by Kindred Spirit Magazine and was honoured to receive the ‘100 Women of Spirit’ award by Dadi Janki of the Brahama Kumaris for feminine leadership and spiritual service.

For over 30 years Robyn Silverton has worked with thousands of different people who have all had one thing in common: they really wanted to feel better – in body, mind or spirit – or often, all three. It’s a feeling she knows well, having experienced serious health challenges from birth. Her qualification as a physiotherapist offers a wonderful foundation in the science of the human body and has served as vital launchpad for all the complementary disciplines she has gone on to explore. Subsequent training in acupuncture, myofascial release, energy integration, intuitive guidance and yoga have continued to shape how she works with clients and, combined, enable Robyn to take a truly holistic approach in addressing every level of being. In essence, she is a facilitator and motivator who gets to the heart of physical and emotional matter.

INCLUDES

RECHARGE, RECONNECT AND REBALANCE

Set 850 metres above sea level, overlooking Lake Orta in Italy, the site faces southeast, enjoying the morning sun rising over the Mottarone mountain range across the lake.

The classic feng shui dream of enjoying the inspiration of the sun, lake and valley in front of us, whilst being supported and protected by the buildings, trees and gardens behind is a functioning reality at Mandali.
