Are you feeling called to experience deep energy healing and heart opening? Spend a transformative week on magical Crete immersed in the healing energy of the island as you experience the vibrations of sound healing through mantra chanting, bhakti yoga, and Tibetan singing bowls. Dedicating time to healing the heart center will lead to a more balanced, energized life and the ability to radiate light. To compliment daily yoga, meditation, and pranayama classes atop a sunny rooftop overlooking the sea, there will be a deep exploration of varied mediums of sound. Experience an awakening of the mind through the Alpha and Theta waves generated by the sound bowls and chant mantras to connect to new levels of consciousness. Nourish with organic, locally-sourced vegetarian meals drawing inspiration from Cretan and Ayurvedic culinary traditions. Draw upon the energy of the sun, the sea, and the mountains as you experience this awakening journey.
