In these challenging times, have you ever felt disconnected from yourself, others, and/or your deeper purpose?
Then we invite you to come join us in a special loving community to bring in the New Year. We have designed the retreat, to help us identify and work with the obstacles and resistance we may have to deeper connection with ourselves, with each other, and with spirit.
Through an intense yet playful program of dance, yoga, meditation, live music, body awareness, self-care, and sharing, we will explore those patterns keeping us from living our full, unashamed truth on this planet.
The team, with their years of experience in the healing arts, will present a variety of practical tools and exercises for exploring a deeper inner connection to begin to unlock our essential purpose and meaning.
The setting for this beautiful process will be at Gut Merteshof, a peaceful countryside retreat center in Kersch not far from Trier.
Come bring in the New Year with a transformative celebration with like-minded seekers of joy, truth, laughter, and love.

KELLY OWEN (USA)
Kelly currently works as an Intuitive Bodyworker. He bases his approach on a combination of techniques and traditions that address physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual levels: Chi Nei Tsang, Karsei Nei Tsang, Thai Massage, Ayurvedic Body Rebalancing, Tantric Massage Therapy, Reflexology, and Reiki. He also draws on his experience as a former Hatha and Kundalini yoga teacher and Aura Reader.
During a session, he is able to sense people’s stories, accessing and releasing frozen experiences, emotional blockages, and past trauma that are keeping them stuck in destructive patterns and suffering. By going to the roots of old pain and fears and bringing them to the conscious light, he teaches people how they can ultimately heal and transform those dynamics which are preventing them from living healthier, happier, more connected lives.
WILLKA CHAKI (LUX)
Willka Chaki is an intuitive music artist using sounds and silence to guide people to the depths of their soul. His experience and sacred knowledge gained in his travels in Peru and India are energetically infused in his creations.
With his instruments like the didgeridoo, drum, shruti, monochord, singing bowls and voice he is creating soundscapes that connect you with ancient memories and feelings of warmth, wholeness and home that lie in our deepest self. Remembering who you are beyond words and definitions. Activating and exploring parts that one can access through altered states of consciousness.
A journey held with vibrations of peace, love, belonging, vulnerability and sensitivity. Reconnecting and dropping into the fundamental essence of our being, guided by smooth and raw sounds, and the ancient arts of sound healing.
