Radiant Insight Women’s Retreat

SABINE WINKLER

27th May to 3rd June 2020

On the trail of Maria Magdalene

3-day Feminine Embodiment Special Workshop “Goddess Essence”

Have you ever wondered, how it would feel if you could awaken your inner goddess, live your pure yin energy and let the power of your feminine essence radiate outward with a unique community of women in a magnificent environment and with delicious food?

​With ecstatic dance, yoga, releasing, meditation, and other helpful healing and self-empowering methods, change can happen on all spheres very easily, which is supported and deepened by a special 3-day Feminine Embodiment Workshop “GODDESS ESSENCE”.

This spiritual journey on the feminine essence was conceived by Sabine Winkler to awaken and empower your inner Goddess. During these seven days, you will experience transformation in a unique way and will then be able to integrate all this into your daily life.

As women, how we feel about ourselves is paramount to our happiness and success. What we experience inside is reflected in our work, relationships, and our life as a whole.

Each and every one of us has a sensitivity and relationship towards appearance, it is our identity and determines our self-worth and how we carry ourselves through life.

When we love ourselves it inspires us to relax into our own feminine power and allows our natural reserves of love, compassion, and resilience to freely flow.

Through awakening our sensuality and taking care of our mental and physical bodies we are able to get in touch with our innate beauty.

In these seven days you will learn how to apply these transformative techniques to your life and have the opportunity to share sacred space with an exceptional circle of women.

We invite women of every shape, age, and stage to join us on this deeply profound personal journey towards an exceptional life.

Community, delicious and healthy vegan food and the beautiful, tranquil surroundings of the Santosha Yoga Retreat and Healing Centre in Conilhac De La Montagne, in mystical Occitania, make your time here an unforgettable and spiritual experience.

INCLUDES

*7 nights at the Santosha Yoga Retreat and Healing Centre in spacious community-style rooms with nutritious and 100% organic breakfast and juices.

*daily vegan lunch and dinner

*Morning coffee and herbal teas throughout the day

*Free transportation from and to Limoux Gare, or we can organize collection from Toulouse airport. Please email for price.
