Why should one cleanse and reset physically, emotionally & spiritually? We are living in a very busy and fast world where we sometimes forget to stand still and just breathe. Many of us are having several body issues and the western world tells us to take pills for anything and everything. Most of us are living with fear in our minds, limiting beliefs and not knowing how to break away. Not being able to handle the pressure, this can result in depression and anxiety.
At Ulpotha, we will be looking to change into a more mindful lifestyle to teach our body and mind to stay still; to learn about how life works and to learn to trust and surrender. A deep cleanse and detox with powerful resources will support you in clarifying what you are doing with your time on this planet. What is it you are dreaming of and how can you transform shadow into light? This retreat will help you make an impact for the souls around you and start anew by cleansing your aura.
