Free spirit year course

Especially in changing times, let’s remember that we are free.

Free Spirit – self initiation retreats @ Magical KURA WAKA

Especially in changing times, let’s remember that we are free.

In Free Spirit retreats we initiate ourselves into different aspects to become more real, whole and free. It is all about experiencing freedom - in yourself, in your body and in connection with others. We come together to remember and honor our free spirit. We will meet with elders from different wisdom traditions to remember our true nature.

The retreats will take place in spirited center Kura-waka, a sacred house of learning, in the north of the Netherlands. For over 20 years teachers, elders and wisdom keepers from all over the world visited this place to share their sacred wisdom and teachings with Michaela and many other people that visited the place.

Free Spirit – Year Programme September 2020 – June 2021
In the year programme we dive deep into ourselves to release the free spirit from within.

Every season we gather for a weekend to initiate ourselves into a different element and into different aspects of ourselves to become more real, whole and free.
Every weekend retreat is an initiation by itself. We work with sacred rituals, the elements, movement practices, bodywork, music and healing tools. Every weekend we dive deeper and deeper into our own essence
** 1st weekend: Autumn September 4th-6th 2020
Earth / Roots / Ground; This weekend we will start from where we are, getting to know ourselves, our roots and each other. Together with elder Goncha Garzia Allen and Bernard Kilicheeny from new Mexico we will explore the element of earth.
