About this trip

***Renew, Remember, Embody, Grow***

_____________________________________________

Join us in  Ciénaga, Magdalena, Colombia on January 24-30th 2022. 

---------------

Explore the eastern practices of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Meditation. Through these practices we will be able to connect, listen, and trust that guiding voice within. We will have time to renew our vital life-force energy, remember and unlock our knowledge within, embody our truth and the lessons we learn, and grow and develop into a clearer more accurate version of ourselves.

Each day we will spend time in meaningful and practical workshops, allowing us to dig deep and see clearly. To find our voice, rediscover our light, embrace our inner warrior, take back our power, and embody our truth.

Courtney’s Journey to the Sacred retreat was above what I could have planned for or imagined. The depth of work that I was able to accomplish in the short period of time we were at the retreat was truly amazing. This is because of the very well thought out schedule, activities, group, and personal time balance. The venue chosen for the retreat was also incredible and the additional activities (volcano hike) was such a beautiful addition to the personal work. 5 stars and I can’t wait to return for another retreat with Wholesome Alchemy!

I absolutely loved the trip! It was a beautiful over all experience. I thought Courtney did an amazing job with everything from choosing the venue to creating the content of the retreat to honing all the details, etc etc. I felt very held and supported before, during and after the retreat! The location was phenomenal. The people I met/connected with/re-connected with at the retreat were also amazing and I am just very very grateful for the experience. Everything was just amazing- it’s really hard to put into words what I got out of the experience but it was incredible! I would highly recommend taking a Wholesome Alchemy retreat to anyone it will be soooo worth the investment!

Having to describe this trip in words will take away from the mystical experience but I will do my best! The Journey to the Sacred was a magical and life changing experience. The location of Lake Atitlan Guatemala provided breathtaking views that radiated peace and power. The beautiful lake was surrounded by impressive volcanoes that gave me a sense of wonder and holiness. Courtney is a fantastic teacher. She lead the yoga (asana), mediations, and workshops in a professional and loving way. It was a unique experience to receive professional teaching of information around the 8 limbs of yoga and ayurveda while simultaneously experiencing world class yoga and meditation sessions. There were many times where I felt the presence of sacred divinity around me. It was like I was high on life and my soul was charging up to a higher frequency as each day passed. The food there was delicious and nutritious. Although I am not a vegan at home I found the vegan dishes to be extremely tasty and filling. The balance of structured activities and down time to enjoy the beautiful farm and lake was perfectly precise. The other attendees were incredible individuals and I am confident that some of them are now lifelong friends. I thoroughly enjoyed every single aspect of the Journey to the Sacred and will most definitely be attending another Wholesome Alchemy retreat lead by Courtney very soon! Thank you for the life changing and soul charging experience!

The Journey to the Sacred retreat led by Courtney was honestly the best retreat I have ever been on! It was thoughtfully executed with a mixture of yoga practice, meditation, learning and self growth. I truly felt that I gained so much personal growth and clarity for my life. I would go on ANY retreat Courtney facilitates and you should too!
By Courtney L for Journey To The Sacred (Spirituality, Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda) on 14 Aug, 2021

Courtney is an incredible yoga teacher, she presents it in a way that makes every movement so sacred. Honestly I did not know yoga could be like this. She is incredible and so knowledge able. The entire retreat was perfect, including the food. The workshops were so powerful as well. Just fantastic
