ELEMENTS

Sattva Signature Retreat

JANUARY
5TH - 11th // 2025

ONE OF A KIND EXPERIENCE

To retreat is to take time to relish in your own life’s masterpiece with no judgment, no need to do, just be and savor. To retreat allows you to tend to the cycle of rest, detach from external forces, feed your imagination, and find wholeness with Self. To retreat is an act of love, to cater to your needs without permission, to process and enrich. 

 

To retreat is to cultivate spaciousness in body, mind, soul, and life. Sometimes intentional spacial intervention is the most necessary prescription one can benefit from in order to reclaim Self and induce healing.

WHY RETREAT

We are thrilled to be launching our very own Sattva Signature Retreat. 

"Elements" is a multi-disciplinary experience offered by the founders and residents of this beautiful Retreat Center. The variety of skills, knowledge, and wisdom present in the synthesis of our in-house practitioners and visionaries, make this Retreat something unique in the world.

CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

Through Sattva Signature Retreat "ELEMENTS", you will have the chance to experience amazing classes and workshops that will enrich and re-vitalize your physical, emotional, and spiritual body.

EARTH

Intro to Permaculture = Permaculture is a holistic approach to sustainable design and agriculture that seeks to mimic natural ecosystems, emphasizing principles such as diversity, interdependence, and thoughtful utilization of resources for the creation of regenerative and harmonious living systems.

Functional Movement = This class is an opportunity to check in with where you are, and provide some innovative and fun examples of how you can begin to expand your repertoire and move through your life with more freedom of physical expression!

Yin Yoga = Embracing the element of Earth, Yin Yoga focuses on restoring the body, promoting a sense of calmness for the nervous system. This class will ground and regulate your body, mind, and soul and help you fully arrive. 
 

WATER

Qi Gong = Qi Gong is a traditional Chinese practice incorporating mindful movement, breath control, and meditation to cultivate and balance the flow of vital energy (qi) within the body, promoting overall well-being, stress reduction, enhanced vitality, and improved mind-body harmony.

Cacao Ceremony = Learn about ancient Latin American plant medicine, Theobroma cacao. Equally rooted in today’s Mayan cultures, Cacao is a food and medicine that can offer great sustenance, nourishment, and high vibration. Melt away and absorb its countless benefits as you sip a hot cup of 100% drinking Cacao and learn more about its history and role in our counter-culture today.

Women's Circle = A women's circle is a supportive and inclusive gathering where women come together to share experiences, wisdom, and support, fostering community, empowerment, and sisterhood. 

FIRE

Fire Ceremony = A fire ceremony is a ritualistic practice where individuals come together to release intentions, prayers, or symbolic representations into a sacred fire, symbolizing transformation, purification, and the transmutation of energies. 

AIR

Slow Vinyasa Yoga = Slow Vinyasa yoga is a deliberate and mindful practice that combines flowing movement with breath awareness, encouraging a gradual and meditative exploration of yoga postures to enhance flexibility, strength, and inner presence.

Chanting Workshop = Discover the spiritual power of your voice as we dive into the art and practice of kirtan, devotional chant. Every language has given names to the transcendent forces that shape our reality, and to beings and symbols that represent our highest ideals. Chanting these names and ideas is an ancient practice for raising our awareness of our own innate divinity and oneness with All, and generating within ourselves feelings of expansion, connection, and peace. In this workshop, we will explore the teachings of beloved mystics on the theory and practice of chanting, as well as experience and reflect on a variety of chants from around the world.

Sound Healing = Sound Healing is a therapeutic practice that utilizes the vibrations and frequencies of sound, often through instruments like singing bowls or tuning forks, to induce a state of deep relaxation, balance energy, and promote physical and emotional healing.  

Kirtan = Kirtan is a devotional practice rooted in ancient Indian traditions, involving the chanting of sacred mantras and ceremonial songs to evoke a meditative and spiritual experience. Come rest, heal, dance, and sing with the community as we join our voices in beautiful chant. We will sing in a variety of languages, each song possessing its own magic and energy to connect to. Together, we will generate a vibration of healing that permeates our space and ripples out into the world.

ETHER

Walking the Path (workshop) = There are many ways to connect with the wisdom within.  In this workshop, we’ll explore how to develop our own personal toolkit to communicate with our inner guide(s).

Integrating spiritual experiences with EMDR = Peak and spiritual experiences are profound and transformative if they are intentionally integrated and practiced to make a lasting impact. As the worlds of spirituality and psychedelics refine their offerings of peak experiences, it is more important than ever that psychological integration technologies develop to support deep and lasting change and healing for the spiritual seeker. In this experiential group circle and with the help of EMDR and bi-lateral stimulation, we will integrate the experiences you have had during your retreat, help you access your internal wisdom and clarity, and support you to free yourself from the automatic patterns and blocks that have historically kept you from your most liberated and connected self.

5Rhythms® Sweat = 5Rhythms is a dynamic movement practice that explores the interconnected rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness, providing a transformative dance experience aimed at self-discovery, emotional expression, and embodied awareness.

CLAUCO (PERMACARPENTER)

The name Permacarpenter comes from my love and dedication to both permaculture design and woodworking. I am one of the founders of Sattva. I am a finish carpenter and do everything from custom cabinetry to windows and doors, to unique, one-of-a-kind furniture pieces and gifts. My devotion to my craft stems from an intense satisfaction that I derive from turning concept into reality. I created The Permacarpenter in 2014 as a platform to showcase and sell quality, handmade products and to help people bring their own visions to life. Sometimes in today’s modern world we can forget the beauty in the natural, beautiful, and handmade.

Rooted in the wisdom of the body, and devoted to her calling to raise consciousness in the world, Gloria's teachings extend to Yoga, Tao-Tantric Practices, and Women's Reproductive Health. She is also a Visionary Artist, Mother of two and one of Founders of Sattva.

Together with her partner Sam, she transforms local Cacao into a dark craft chocolate, known as Dragon Chocolate throughout Belize.

SAM COMBS 

Sam considers himself very fortunate to be in a guiding role at Sattva! A lifelong student of the natural world, Sam does his best to infuse all of the guest experiences with opportunities for deeply immersive learning and growing. Holding space for groups and individuals to connect with themselves and the people and places that they are visiting is an intrinsic part of Sam’s mission on any retreat, and he’s going to have a blast fulfilling that objective! Sam has been the General Manager at Sattva for many years, and when he’s not immersed in that role you can probably find him making music, movement, and chocolate with his family.

YASMIN PAGE

Yasmin is an educator who has gone from teaching in mainstream secondary schools in the UK to facilitating the self-directed learning co-op here at Sattva.  Always curious to learn more about how we humans can live to really thrive rather than just survive, and how that can guide the choices we make in life. 

Feeling an immense sense of gratitude when given the opportunity to truly connect with others, especially in intentional spaces and ceremony. Allowing our shadows as well as our light to be witnessed.

Mother of three, this has been the hardest and the most beautiful and transformative of all journeys.
