Yin Yang – Harmonizing Masculine & Feminine

August 13, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - August 15, 2021 @ 4:00 pm


YIN YANG Harmonizing the Feminine and Masculine Retreat

Focusing on wholeness at the warm Indian Ocean.

Regardless of gender, we all contain both masculine and feminine energy. As in nature, we function optimally when these energies are in harmony and a state of flow.
Through teachings, facilitated activities, awareness, mindfulness, embodiment and breathing exercises, we will explore the integration of your masculine and feminine energies in an empowered, harmonious lifestyle, in flow with your natural rhythms and purpose.

Held at the beautiful Nkwazi Tree Lodge, Zinkwazi, KZN
Date: 13-15 August 2021
Cost: R4800 single, R3,800 sharing
The accommodation is beautiful and spacious and each room has an en-suite bathroom. Two sea-facing rooms available (first booked have preference). Sharing options available at R3,800, suitable for friends or couples (single beds can be converted to king size if required).

Retreat Focus and Intent
• Harmonizing your masculinity and femininity to be empowering, not destructive
• Archetypes as a way of understanding yourself (and others)
• Being in flow with the natural elements, and the embodiment thereof.
• You and relationships: empowering, domineering, victimised?
• Outdated “rules” – how condition and tradition lead to collision
• The vital role of subtle energies and how they flow
• Understand and welcome our natural cycles and sexuality (men and women)
• Invoke /deepen your spiritually
• Reflect upon your journey of strength, vulnerability and lessons
• Develop and practice mindfulness at a deep level
• Rest, refresh and revitalise

Facilitated by Celeste Du Toit, Transformational Coach, Holistic therapist/bodyworker, and seasoned retreat leader.
Says Celeste: “Having been in a corporate and management environment for years, my strong, action-orientated, goal-driven and focused masculine nature was very evident and served me well.
Up to a point.
Embarking on a personal soul-searching journey, focused on finding meaning and purpose, instilling peace and the desire to help and heal others tapped into my feminine energies. I had to develop these, without losing the drive, focus and passion that is part of me. I had to balance yin and yang.
Learning how to harmonise these energies helped me – in my business, my relationships, and my life in general – to become empowered yet flowing, strong yet gentle, confident yet supportive, inspiring yet helpful, passionate yet calming.”
