EMBODIED HEALING FOR PERSONAL & GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION
THIS RETREAT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED.
The past couple of years have been tough for many of us. This year the Walk Your Talk retreat invites you to a space of restoration and rejuvenation. We will gently unwind, unravel and unpick the debris, dysregulation and upheaval produced in our bodies and lives from the impact of the global pandemic.
Start your journey by immersing yourself in nature’s swaying palms and lapping waves as she holds a safe and nourishing space for you to come home. Come home to your body, come home to the land, come home to your truth and embrace the great story of your soul.
Experience daily yoga, somatic movement and meditation sessions all designed to regulate your nervous system, release holding and balance the body-mind. Journey through the archetypal elements using a variety of psycho-spiritual, shamanic, and creative practices. Open your heart with a sacred Cacao Ceremony and embody the great story of your soul, feeling your vitality and health shine through. End your journey by honouring Mother Earth and celebrating ‘all that you are’ with a Shamanic Fire Ceremony.
Tripadvisor review of Walk your Talk Retreats
Quite Simply Magical
When I booked to go on the retreat, nothing quite prepared me for just how magical the whole experience would be. From the minute I arrived to the minute I left I have never felt so at peace in every way. Vanessa and Mano could not have done more to make my first walk your talk retreat journey more beneficial, I wish I could put into words just how big an impact this has had on me, both during my time at Chera Rocks, and since I have come back home. Thank you so much to you both for helping me make changes that I needed to make, and I'm already looking forward to returning. Read more

I started Walk Your Talk retreats to support people to move forward in their lives, answer their calling and discover their story of greatness. It all developed from my personal healing journey of transformation. Read my journey of transformation here.
