journey to Ecuador and Rewrite Your Story!Date: February 18 - 25, 2019
I am very excited to be offering this week long retreat to Ecuador. The theme of our retreat will be “Rewriting Your Story!” In rewriting our stories, we will be looking at the way we currently view our life as it has happened, pinpoint areas of old thinking and patterning, and rewriting that story from our soul’s truth. Using guided meditation, yoga, Nia breathwork, hiking and exploring, we will connect with our inner selves and create a space to express our soul’s desires and divine purpose for this life. Nikki will be doing the guided meditations and writing workshops. Lisa will be doing the yoga and Nia breath workshops.
Lisa Jones and her husband Kerry Klages, designer agronomist and EFT practitioner, moved to Apuela, Imbabura, Ecuador for the purpose of creating a remote mountain farm and healing, and demonstrating a sustainable model of agricultural living. They bought a 70 acre remote mountain farm of pristine beauty hosting four waterfalls. It is truly a magical place!
During this retreat,we will explore the Andes of northern Ecuador and some of the interesting people who populate this land. We will stay in Cotachachi, the “leather” town; we will take a trip to Otavalo, and go to Otavalo Market, one of the largest, most famous markets in South America; we will stay a few minutes from the farm in this beautiful location on a river with hot springs from the mountains all around and our writing workshops will be at the farm high above the valley, accessible by a 1/2-mile road they built to climb/ride to their mountain paradise.
With love, Nikki Geannelis
