Mironel de Wilde is a yoga teacher and Non-Violent Communication trainer who is half Canadian and half European. At an early age he connected with Tibetan Buddhist teachings and Native Canadian shamanic practices which opened the world of spiritual discovery to him. He traveled to India in 2001 to explore and practice the depths of yoga and he started teaching in 2004. His yoga path and teaching include a gentle, deep style of hatha yoga, the integrating, energy-based approach of Tantra and the esoteric philosophy and practice of Kashmir Shaivism. When Mironel encountered Non-Violent Communication (NVC), it opened a new world of self-understanding and acceptance for him. It has become a way to cultivate deep compassion and self-compassion which he loves to share. His focus is on offering tools and inspiration for self-growth to support deep connection with ourselves and each other so that we can live in full authenticity. He also makes films as an expression of his discoveries and learning on the Path.
Georgina Peard is a yoga teacher, massage therapist, and Heart IQ™ Circle Coach. Her life is infused with the sacred and her work emerges from a deep embodied experience and sense of Self and life. Rather than learning to increase knowledge, she experiences her path as a remembering, an unfolding and a revealing of her true nature and potential. In 2010, after a 15 year career in nature conservation, she found herself burning out, sad and disillusioned. This was her calling to come ‘home’ and wake up! She committed 100% to a journey of self-discovery, -love and -empowerment. This led to awareness of the emotional-energetic intelligence of her body through sacred bodywork and embodiment practices, Tantra and Shamanism. Heart IQ Circle opened her up to authentic and compassionate living. Georgina is passionate about igniting more embodied love consciousness and supporting people on a transformative path of personal and collective healing and awakening. Teaching since 2010, she offers retreats, private consultations, workshops, community gatherings and circle coaching.
Mar Talavera will be preparing the food with love during our retreat.
Mar has a Degree in Therapeutic Cooking at the Macrobiotic Institut of Cataluña and trained in raw food by professionals like Mimi Kirk, Javier Andrés Medvedovsky and Chistine Mayr. Her project is called ``Mar Soulkitchen``.
Cooking, for Mar, is a medicine and an art, in order to accomplish the nutritional functions but also the pleasure of sight and taste. One of her greatest rewards is to see how she can feed people's hearts.
« I feel nurtured, restored and energized after this weekend. I had so much energy that week after your wonderful restorative yoga that it really got me through what is always an all-consuming, exhausting time. Even my colleagues noticed it! It was just so positive and truly restorative in every sense »
« Thanks to you for such an amazing experience! Today was the first morning since weeks where I drove quite relaxed to the office, without thinking about private problems and fully energized to take on the challenges of the week. Thanks for that! »
« This retreat has helped get me back on track and simply feel at ease again. Georgina’s wisdom, teaching and warmth made the retreat a truly rich and wholesome experience »
« I tried meditation for the first time during the retreat. Now I continue doing it, not yet very regularly, but hope to have a consistent practice step by step. The most important thing is I like it and it helps me be more calm, balanced, relaxed and focused! »
«Cette retraite m’a permis de prendre d’avantage du temps pour moi et a contribué à me recentré sur les choses qui sont importantes pour moi, qui me donnent de l’équilibre, de l’énergie, de la joie et de la force. Cette retraite m’a appris à connecter à mon intuition quand je veux et m’a appris à lui faire confiance. Grace à cela, je fais aujourd’hui la choix consciente de donner à mon intuition une vrai place dans ma vie…L’amour et la joie que j’ai ressenti pendant ce séjour est intégré dans mes cellules profondément. »
« Je suis rentrée allégée, soulagée de certaines douleurs et pleine de joie & gratitude. Effet magique. Mon regard sur ma Vie et les personnes qui la partagent est plus doux…Après réflexion, je crois que l’effet bénéfique de ces retraites/stages tient dans ce subtil équilibre entre: mouvement du corps (yoga – écoute de soi), touché du corps (massage – prendre soin de soi), parole du cœur (cercle – échange entre nous). Cette combinaison parfaite me permet d’aller à l’essentiel et de faire bouger mes résistances tout en douceur et dans le rire. »
