Surrender to Soul - Rural Spain
Get connected, get clear, and learn to surrender to your soul.
Journey to rural Spain, less than one hour from Barcelona, and reconnect with nature and your true essence. We will experience a more authentic version of Spain, respecting their appreciation for surrendering to the flow of life while also enjoying daily yoga, meditation, breathwork, and Tai Chi. We will workshop topics that assist us in becoming more connected with our deeper layers and allow us to see our path more clearly. Get connected, get clear, and learn to surrender to your soul. Once we begin the journey within, we open up to life’s beautiful synchronicities and “big magic.”
