UPCOMING RETREAT

El Gouna, Egypt

October 2022

A journey to yourself

A sea & desert retreat by Kailo

a journey that can be different for everyone.

a journey that focuses on creating space for

  • connecting with your body

  • silencing your mind

  • meeting your soul

not another retreat with a time table.

we want to slow down.

we want to take the time that is needed.

we want to be led by the natural flow of things.

we want to connect with the natural space around us.

daily sessions to dive deeper into your topics

  • that will appear along the way

  • that might already be present in your life right now.

 

we’ll open a space

for what wants to be seen, what wants to be looked at,

what wants to be let go off.

call this journey a time-out, personal development,

call it self experience and self-reflection,

call it a healing journey,

call it a spiritual journey.

you decide what it is for you.

"[The waves] move across a faint horizon, the rise and fall and rise and fall of all of it, the incoming and the outgoing, the infinite procession of life. And the ocean wraps the earth, a reminder. The mysteries come forward in waves."

Why in the desert and at the sea?


the landscape of the desert & the sea are supporting us nature opens up a great space of experience. nature functions as a mirror for anything that’s there. through the outer nature we are connecting with our inner nature. ▶ our journey starts in the desert An arabic proverb says: He who goes into the desert will not remain the same who he was before. quiet. wide horizons. clarity of the stars. the gaze becomes soft. the gaze goes inwards. moving towards the essential. letting go the rest. what remains gains in significance and power. ▶ and it continues at the sea the sea as the source of all life on earth qualities of a great mother being carried and birthed being devoured and rebirthed the longing for faraway places the yearning for home the eternal restlessness corresponding to the constant movement of the sea experiencing the versatile nature of the sea getting in contact with the richness of our feelings getting in contact with ourself > READ MORE HERE (EN)

"Fret not where the road will take you. Instead concentrate on the first step. That's the hardest part and that's what you are responsible for. Once you take that step let everything do what it naturally does and the rest will follow. Do not go with the flow. Be the flow."

- Elif Shafak, the Fourty Rules of Love
