We will dial into the most essential elements of the human healing experience with rich discussion bridging the scientific "how" with the human "why". Together, we will harmonize our minds, bodies, and souls with neurological re-patterning and restoring practices while forming meaningful bonds with inspiring women that will last a lifetime.

ALCHEMY. This journey will also incorporate simple yet powerful processes to illuminate clarity around any personal or professional challenges you may be experiencing in your life. You will be supported in diving deep into your heart and honoring your truths so that you can heal and be empowered to live life in a way that is aligned with your dreams. You will birth a new realm of grace and beauty that transforms you and the world around you.

CULTURE. This retreat will offer opportunities to experience temples, traditional ceremonies and dance, local artisans and cultural events all while basking in the beauty of Indonesia. We will also participate in a Day of Silence and meditation in honor of this culture’s most holy day of the year. This will give participants an opportunity to integrate the elements of the retreat and enjoy the special location.

SOUL FLOW SEVA. Community service day is included so we can practice the art of Seva. Seva is the sanskrit word for selfless service. Aligned with the theme of birthing your inner bliss, we will spend our seva day at a world-renowned birthing center established to serve the local women and families who can no longer afford health-care due to the growing economic disparity of the underserved local communities.

 

BE PREPARED TO:

  • Discover a new realm of JOY through playful yet soulful movement practices with poi* and the hula hoop.
  • Access the true nature of your feminine essence as you explore circular movement in the body and become intimate with the cosmic pattern of the Spiral, an ancient symbol for the goddess, womb, and fertility.
  • Drop in to a unique meditative state through guided movement blending flow arts, yoga, and dance.
  • Heal your mental, emotional, and physical, body as a result of re-patterning the nervous system and even releasing trauma through these transformative somatic practices.
  • Trust in the deeper knowing of your innate beauty, brilliance, and wisdom.
  • Be empowered and fully supported in awakening your inner fire and birthing your inner bliss while having a blast!
  • Share an expression of your choice on the last night of our journey (optional).

testimonials 

Here are the reflections of a few attendees of the 2015 Beauty That Transforms retreat at the Kalani Retreat Center on the Big Island of Hawai'i and the impact it had on their lives: 

There is no other organization or person that has more greatly affected my life than Soul Flow Alchemy and Dr. Jinju Dasalla. I almost backed out of attending the retreat because it was a time in my life when I felt deeply depressed and like a failure. I’m so thankful that I didn’t cancel my trip. I really needed to be there to help me become the person I wanted to be and let myself be me. The magic and tools you provided and the space are something I go back to every day. Your retreat brought me more peace and hope than anything I had tried before. 

~ Tracie Behnke, NY
 

My experience was pure inspiration. Every single person had a transformation. I would recommend this Retreat anybody feeling they have lost spirit because you will find it here.

~ Landa, Hoopdance Teacher, BC 


Coupling personal growth and transformational work with the flow arts has been so powerful for me, and for my clients, I can’t imagine these journeys any other way! 

~ Christine, Teacher and Healer


Powerful work that is playful and deep. Jinju, I really love how you teach!

~ Camille, Founder & CEO of The L Trainer, NYC

 

Soul Flow Arts has become a part of my life, even after only two Retreats! I plan to continue to practice every aspect I've gained And possibly going to find a way to incorporate this amazing concept into my professional life!
