Nowadays the most common thing is to get advice on how to live your life. How to be everything. 10 steps to be slim, sexy, build a successful business, career, attract a fulfilling relationship.

This is also why we love reading self-help books. We believe that someone who did it before us can give us the cheat codes.

And yes this is true. However, what is also true is that we have unique destiny and journey and it best to develop a huge discernment to external opinions and connect within.

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s easy to lose touch with ourselves and our innermost needs. Amidst the chaos, self-care often takes a backseat, and our intuition becomes drowned out by the noise of the world around us. However, carving out time for self-care and reconnecting with our inner authority is essential for our overall well-being and inner peace.

Imagine a serene retreat nestled in nature, far away from the distractions of daily life. Here, amidst the tranquil surroundings, individuals embark on a profound journey of self-discovery and renewal. This retreat is not just a getaway; it’s a sacred space where participants can delve deep into the essence of their being.

Each day begins with gentle yoga and meditation, setting the tone for a day of introspection and self-reflection.

As the sun rises, participants are encouraged to engage in mindfulness practices, such as mindful walking or journaling, allowing them to connect with their innermost thoughts and feelings.

Nutritious meals are prepared with love and intention, nourishing the body from the inside out.

As participants savor each bite mindfully, they become more attuned to their body’s needs and signals, fostering a deeper sense of self-awareness and appreciation for the present moment.

Throughout the retreat, workshops and discussions are held to explore various aspects of intuition and learn essential but simple self care practices.

Guided by experienced facilitators, participants learn practical tools and techniques to cultivate self-love, enhance intuition, and cultivate a deeper connection with yourselves and others.

Nature walks offer opportunities for quiet contemplation and communion with the natural world, reminding participants of the inter-connectedness of all living beings. Whether it’s the gentle rustle of leaves or the soothing sound of the nearby waves caressing the shore, nature has a way of grounding us and reminding us of our place in the universe.

Evenings are reserved for rest and relaxation, allowing you to unwind and recharge your batteries.

Whether it’s soaking in a hot bath, stargazing under the vast expanse of the night sky, or simply curling up with a good book, each individual is encouraged to honor their unique needs and desires.

As the retreat draws to a close, participants emerge with a renewed sense of vitality and purpose. Armed with newfound insights and practices, they return to their daily lives with a deeper sense of self-awareness and a commitment to nurturing their well-being.

In a world that often demands our constant attention and energy, taking time for self-care and honoring our intuition is not a luxury but a necessity. The journey of self-discovery begins with a single step, and a retreat dedicated to self-care and intuition is the perfect place to start.

The location:

Suniai-Oliva is located near the village of Oliva, nestled midway between the cities of Valencia and Alicante, on the eastern coast of Spain. Surrounded by mountains, sea, and farmland, the area feels safe and snug, an oasis tucked into the Spanish countryside. The Mediterranean climate offers mild winters and dry summers and, while there is some tourism, there are very few hotels which leaves the environment undisturbed and quiet.

To visit Oliva, you can drive or bike on narrow roads that wind through fertile farmland. On Friday mornings, there’s a wonderful open-air market where local vendors sell fresh produce and items such as clothing and handmade soaps.

From the retreat center, take a short, 15-minute walk to a white sand beach and the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean. As you walk, you’ll get a sense of the locale as you pass through orange and olive groves and walk by private homes.

Or take a short car ride to the mountains where you can enjoy beautiful hiking trails and experience the rugged landscape with panoramic views of the sea.

The retreat center

Suniai-Oliva is a retreat center with a pleasant, peaceful environment for resting, learning, and gathering in community. It’s a safe space where participants can relax and practice suniai – deeply listening to themselves and each other, and reconnecting with personal stories and inner truths.
