Day 1 - 16th June: Healing and Fulfillment on All Levels of our Being
It was an especially sunny day on the Island of Bornholm – a promising beginning for the 7 day Holistic Wellness Retreat. Participants gathered to the Island from Denmark and Sweden, looking forward to a week of deep regeneration, energizing and relaxation.
The retreat began with an opening meditation and a presentation of the program and of the teachers: Emil Noll, Emanuel Langghoff, Minodora Blomgren and Louise Skjoldan. Keynote speaker Advaita Stoian will join 3 days later.
Then Emil presented some introductory notions at the basis of this retreat: ‘’Health is not the absence of sickness… we give today way to much attention to the disease than we do to the state of harmony in which no disease is possible…. You don’t fix disharmony – you create harmony… the whole medical system today profits from us being sick but our attitude should not be to run away from disease but to run towards harmony’’.
Indeed – Health is so much more than the absence of illness – it is a state of deep harmony, abundant energy, complete relaxation, overflowing joy and inspiration. And this state is our birthright and our natural state. This is the state we aim to achieve in this retreat.
Dinner was prepared by a dedicated team of volunteers and was delicious and energizing.
After dinner the participants gathered for a series of ice-breaking and heart opening exercises, concluding with a sharing circle over tea – each one sharing his/her deep motives in coming to this retreat.
Then off to bed in expectation for day 2 of the retreat - a day dedicated to health at the physical level.
