No matter how relaxed you already are, you can always relax more” – Cora Verkuilen

You are invited to join us on a magical 10-day WILD dolphin adventure reconnecting you with your innate creativity, your passion and spontaneity. This retreat will be an exploration in:

Liquid Yoga:
Resting into the unknown and with no expectations we enter the Mystery. Moving the breath through the body and the body through the breath, our bodies soften, open and expand. We will re-pattern the mind-body system and activate the liquid light body with the breath. We will use music, chanting, ritual & breathwork in our Yoga from within healing practice – relaxing deeply into receptivity – cultivating yin energy and efficiently utilising yang energy.

Deep Breath:
Breathwork is the key to consciousness and the breath is the single most powerful tool we have as a force for waking up on the planet right now. The breath is the most intimate touch of existence…this first beloved caresses us from the inside all the time and yet we hardly notice its presence. Most of us have hardly begun to explore the power of the breath as a tool to deepen our intimacy with ourselves and with existence. There is so much more capacity for aliveness in us, right here in our bodies if we open up more deeply to the breath. Powerful physical, emotional and psychological healing happens spontaneously as a result of conscious connected breathing. When we awaken to the energy within us, we merge with the energy around us – and vice versa. When we melt into the energy that surrounds us, we fall into the energy that is at our core…we die into love, into bliss. Every breath a dolphin takes is conscious and here, the dolphins are our teachers – reminding us that “bliss that is our birthright”.

Subtle Body:
Using breath sound & movement we explore the pathways that open as we surrender to sexual energy as a vehicle for awakening, deepening sexual awareness and sensation. If our lovemaking is with all of existence as an act of devotion, then our sexual energy is like a rippling blue flame – a cool fire that ripples under our skins and sets every part of our bodies alight. It is clear and lucid. It is expansive and full-bodied. It is quiet and present. It is passionate enough to ignite new life and burn away dead wood. It is exquisitely sensual. When we enter into the rippling blue flame, time disappears, form becomes less dense and we awaken to the beloved in all things.

Dolphin  Swim Launches:
Five educational, respectful and awareness based Dolphin swims in the wild sea of Mozambique, guided by Courtney.

Cora Verkuilen

Ik ben. Leven vanuit mijn hart. Dat doe ik, elke dag meer. Ik wist het vroeger al: werken en studeren, het kán en mag leuk zijn! Mijn missie is ‘Expanding Awareness’. Mijn werk is pittig. Verdiepend. Confronterend. Not for Sissies.
