In sync with World Peace Day, this November our Healing Retreat in St Catherine’s, “One With Earth” embraces the connection between our human body chakra’s and the earth’s chakra’s, with particular focus of the throat chakra.
Mt Sinai a unique sacred place
The earth’s throat chakra center is geometrically located Mt Sinai, in St Catherine’s Egypt, unique among the earth’s sacred centers for it’s role in enabling the earth’s voice to emerge. For all of the earth chakras, the art of listening to the will of the Earth is something which needs to be mastered. Humans will never harmonise with the purpose of life until they learn to hear and respect the voice of the Earth spirit.
Rising out of the arid desert, Mt Sinai thrusts up through a sea of millions of year old rock, soaring to a height of 2285m above sea level. Such rock symbolizes humanities spiritual yearnings and encourages personal growth even on a subconscious level. Fissures within the mountain rock are studded with smokey quartz, chalcedony, turquoise & quartz, some saying that it is these powerful crystal components that radiate such a positive energy in the region.
St Catherine’s is not only powerful in it’s energy levels, but also in it’s historical peace keeping influences and it’s unique factor of embracing all three of the words greatest faiths, something that is still in the air to this day.
Healing Retreat in St Catherine
Our Healing Retreats in St Catherine’s are led by the impassioned Sylvie Caron, an experienced and extremely knowledgeable healer, who uses her array of therapies which include Reiki, Crystal Healing, Chakra cleansing & meditation to restore balance and reactivate energies.
“One With Earth” is a 2 Day Healing Retreat in St Catherine’s starting from Dahab or directly in St Catherine’s with a visit to the Monastery, to ground your presence in this precious place of worship. A conscious walk through Wadi Arbaeen, allows you to enter into this magical land with a peaceful rhythm, emptying your mind of every day stresses and absorb the surrounding natural beauty of the valley. Once arrived at our retreat camp you will have a short orientation of the facilities and meet our Bedouin hosts with plentiful cups of herbal teas, indigenous of the St Catherine’s region.
To commence the retreat we share a lecture on Human & World Chakra’s, Aura & Energy and the importance of activating the Throat Chakra, fundamental in communication, using the air element of Sinai. We will discover the world’s chakras symbioses with human chakras; what it is, Why we do it and how we can do it!
Our first day goes on to encompass guided meditation to reach your source through chakra identification and aura observation in a group attunement giving gifts from the universe!
Now that we have initiated the opening of certain key chakra’s & identified the aura, we take things a step further with an oriental dance movement and sound healing session, to ground your aura to the earth source.
A light lunch and dinner cooked on the open fire are scheduled throughout the day, giving you plenty of time to process your ensuing your emotional & spiritual awakening. After dinner and under the stars Sylvie will encourage a group discussion allowing you to open up and share your experience, exchange of energy and ask any questions of your days sessions.
Our overnight sleeping arrangements consists of a communal tent with mattresses and sleeping bags freshly laundered for your use. The retreat camp also hosts a kitchen / restaurant area and shared WC.
For those who wish to take this retreat to a higher level, a walk up Mt Sinai is arranged for a 2am departure from camp. We walk for approximately 2hrs to reach the plateau of Elias Garden, the perfect resting place before taking the 720 steps of repentance to the summit of Mt Sinai. Once on the top of the world and at the site where Moses received The Ten Commandments, you will watch the sunrise of the mountain ranges of South Sinai, a truly magnificent sight.
We will all convene back at camp for a short morning meditation before enjoying a hearty breakfast of freshly baked Bedouin bread, natural honey from the bee farms of St Catherine’s, fresh eggs from the Bedouin women’s family chickens to name a few of the local delicacies of the region.
Today we focus on Self Meditation with sound healing therapy to explore your inner space and auric field, to truly identify & recognize your own personal frequency. We take all these techniques and use them in a personal improvisation session where you will meditate or use movement to engage in your own experience.
To complete this Healing Retreat, we come together as a group for a grounding circle of healing and exchange of energy.
A short trek down through Wadi Arbaeen to return to the village, lets you reconnect, a passage from your inner world, back to join the outer world of our every day lives.
