About this trip

We have the greatest pleasure to invite you on a beautiful journey into the heart of the dreamy Madeira island, from Thursday, January 5th to Monday, January 9th 2023. We will be getting together on this hidden Portuguese land in the middle of the Atlantic to celebrate the year that has passed and the one to come. We would love to accompany you through this transition - that can be quite confusing at times - collectively leaving the Past, with its traumas & dramas, behind and learning precious tools for the construction of our Tomorrow. The name of this sacred space will be « Future Embodied », as the access to the enlightened future lies through our magnificent bodies - of all shapes / ages / genders / colors - and the loving relationship to the Self. 

Villa - Quinta Santa Luiza

The event will be taking place in a hidden heaven on earth - a stunning family villa built in 1826. This rural oasis located near the center of Funchal - the capital of mysterious Madeira - offers an opportunity to experience a traditional working Quinta, full of history and charm. They’ve been hosting people for many years, with a special dedication to agricultural and ecological sustainability, as well as to creating a relaxing and elevated atmosphere for personal growth. Not to mention the breathtaking views of the Funchal Bay and thousands of meters of lush green gardens. 

We are Dara & Louise

This co-creation is the result of an inspiring encounter and a newly born friendship between two dharma sisters highly complementary to each other. Louise Delestre has studied Kundalini Yoga at Amrit Nam Sarovar, under the guidance of Karta Singh and the mentorship of Caroline Bénézet. Louise’s favorite tools to spread love, light and joy are Reiki and Sound with singing bowls from the Himalayas. Coming from a different tradition, Dara Bobrova received the Teachings at Ik Saran Dhian with Ishwara Kaur & Kirpal Singh. Dara continues her exploration of Kundalini Yoga as a powerful healing technique - through deep meditations and devotional mantras - with Ajai Alai Awakening, learning from the beautiful trio : Sat Sarbat, Satmukh and Fateh. 

Food for Souls

The secret gem of the retreat will be the presence of our Kundalini sister, Anaïs Beltran, who is also an incredibly talented chef. As a true artist, she creates an intuitive and poetic cuisine that draws its strength from the sacred sources of the Earth to nourish, regenerate and elevate body, soul & spirit. Anaïs uses the alchemy of places, seasons, the plant world and the people around to offer vibrant, memorable and magical meals. An ode to the Earth and the sky, a dance of the elements, joyful dishes of high vitality, where harmony & pleasure of the senses unite in the service of a true medicine of the living.

Languages we speak

This retreat will be mainly led in English, with assistance in French, Spanish and Russian upon request.

A soulmates' gathering

More of a soulmates’ gathering than a classic retreat, this project will be infused with hours of Kundalini yoga, meditation, mantra chanting, pranayama, sound healing, dancing, exploring nature, intentions’ setting, group therapy sessions, yogic theory, vegetarian / vegan diet, Sadhana experience and more.
