It fills me with joy that you are interested in joining us for this very special &Sister retreat with Mischa, Lis and l in July. Full details on the retreat are below. With &Sister, as always, you are in for a wonderful joyful deep dive of a weekend with much healing, transformation and laughter.
Arrival is from 4 pm Friday and the retreat runs until 2 pm Sunday. There will be daily yoga classes, meditation practices and delicious nutritious food as well as add-on reflexology treatments, morning meditation walks and the grounds to explore and the pool in the afternoons- let’s hope our sun salutations bring out the sun!This will be a sweet and immersive weekend of delicious yoga and tantra practices led by Mischa. It is an invitation for you to be with us, in sacred ritual, to hold, journey into, meet and honour the sacred heart of life. The retreat is curated, and the space is held by &Sister with their deep love of retreats and yoga philosophy. The food will be delivered by &Sister’s very own April Jackson. Imagine beautifully presented healthy morning smoothies and snacks, big brunches, summer soups and crunchy salads, and Ayurveda-inspired warming evening dahl around the fire bowl, with our recent trip to Sweden inspiring the presentation and natural, whole-food produce.

Mischa & Alicia’s vision for Into the Sacred Heart Retreat;
We will gather in the stunning English Summertime for a weekend of yoga, meditation, breath, movement, nature and nurture, community and much more!
‘Into The Sacred Heart’ is inspired by our mutual longing to plug into what is meaningful and true and to create a shared experience of joy, discovery, nurture, connection and transformation. The Sacred Heart is both the container and the centre. The Ancient Yogic Traditions teach that there is a chamber or space within our hearts that holds the entire universe called the Hrit Padma. It is both the point of our devotion, the place of union and integration, and the holding space for our complete experience.
At a time when we are experiencing so much intensity, both in the world and in our lives, it is more essential than ever that we keep rooting into this inner space where we can discover a fortitude to hold, process, transform and integrate, and where we can discover joy and connection when it is most needed.
Tantra teaches surrender to the truth of our hearts and inspires us to follow the inner wisdom that emanates from here. Yoga and Tantra provide us with tools and teachings to navigate the challenges, pathways, lessons and textures of our lives.
Our practice should not just be something that we do and it is not just the place that we seek or arrive. It is the whole journey. Every step of the way. Every phase of our growth. It is how we integrate what we experience and learn. It is the capacity we have to keep saying Yes to life, to open our hearts, and to find meaning and purpose even when we feel lost.
Into The Sacred Heart honours the processes that we go through to arrive back in our centre. It honours the heart of these sacred practices and the heart of our experiences.
