How is your nervous system actually doing? How connected are you to your heart and your nervous system? Are you allowing yourself to feel and process your emotions? These are some of the main questions that will open and guide the path of our inner exploration. When experiencing long periods of sadness, grief, anxiety, emotional pain or apathy, our nervous system is overwhelmed, becoming easily compromised and deregulated. We will complement the inner exploration with techniques and practices used for thousands of years that support the body to recalibrate and reach harmony. If our nervous system is balanced, we live in balance with ourselves and everything around us, we experience reality from a space of inner calm and deep relaxation, we have clarity, can make decisions, and have intuition. A healthy and regulated nervous system helps us see, hear, feel, breathe, and lead our life with serenity and ease. During our 5 days together, we will encourage you to step into the vastness of the heart and all that it has been through up to that moment. We will explore the connection between the emotions that impact our heart and their impact on our entire nervous system, so that we can understand the interconnectedness between the two and how they can support us reach our highest potential through healing and recalibration.
We will bring forth the knowledge and perspective of Chinese Medicine on what our heart and nervous system represent, experiencing the acupuncture treatments. We are customizing the treatments based on every person that is attending. We know that you are unique and also know that one size doesn’t fit all. Once you register, you’ll be asked to answer a few questions so that we can best prepare your experience during the retreat. Please know that alternative treatments are offered such as cupping, guasha and moxibustion for those where the needle treatment cannot be performed. We have found one of the best acupuncture experts to be working with you on this and are thrilled that Dr. Jun Huang has accepted our invitation to join us in Transylvania. Dr. Jun Huang is a world-renowned Chinese doctor and Acupuncturist that has been practicing and teaching on the subject for nearly 25 years. She is currently teaching at Shenzhou Open University of TCM in Amsterdam, Netherlands and is practicing acupuncture on clients who seek her to solve different health challenges and regain vitality and energy. Prior to making Amsterdam her home, Dr. Jun has also studied, taught, and practiced Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture in China, Portugal and Brazil which has allowed her to gain a comprehensive understanding of patients coming from diverse regions, ethnic backgrounds, and cultures, thereby enriching both her pedagogical and clinical proficiencies. This is the first time when Dr. Jun is offering her expertise and experience in Romania.

To set the foundation in the beginning of the retreat, we will work on a somatic level with Kundalini Yoga techniques, supported by specific practices of Yin and Hatha Yoga, in order to open the body, release emotional clutter and residue from our cells and reset our nervous system entirely. We will allow the purifying sound and the high frequencies of the Gong to continue the process of releasing, cleansing and healing.
The frequencies of the Gong Baths that are scheduled late in the evening create a profound experience as sound plays a major role throughout this four-day journey. It will support and complete our meditations to help us let go of the stagnant and stuck aspects of our subconscious mind, allowing for a full recovery and regeneration of our nervous system. The support of the Acupuncture sessions (2 individual sessions based on an initial consultation) will provide the proper support for your body to process things and speed up the healing. The Mandalas of Light will provide the key that will beautifully link all these practices together.
We are delighted to share with you this truly unique experience in a spiritual and beautifully restored location – the 600 years old Transylvanian Saxon village of Cincsor.
