& EXCLUSIVE Retreat
Portland ~ Blue Mountain ~ Kingston
April 23 – 30 2021
8 Days, 7 Nights
We will officially start our retreat by diving into a morning practice designed to help you take command of your mind and body. We will rise with the sun as this part of the island sits on the east and is blessed with the most beautiful sunrise. We will do a mediation and awaken our bodies from the inside out with a yoga flow. After breakfast, off for the day’s excursion the infamous oasis known as the Blue Lagoon. The water is absolutely stunning here and mixed with both fresh water and sea water.
On this day we will journey to Long Bay, a 1 mile crescent shaped beach completely remote and untouched with white sand and rolling waves. We will host our mediation and yoga practice here at sunrise surrounded by natures 5 elements: water, wind, fire, earth & sun. This will be a very powerful and profound experience. After an authentic Jamaican breakfast at a popular local spot, we will head to Reach Falls for an amazing cleansing experience hiking and dipping into the 8 natural pools leading up to a vast water falls. In the evening we’ll begin our jammin at a local reggae music and dance spot.
Sunrise meditation & yoga followed by a day to your leisure. We want you to enjoy the grounds of our resort, The Great Huts, designed as a West African village and filled with adventurous aspects and activities. You can lounge by the beach, dive off it’s cliff or take surf lessons. The evening will offer a workshop designed to reconnect us to our natural root…Africa! And since this will be our last night in Portland, we will celebrate with a sunset party at a fun local venue on the beach.
After our morning meditation & yoga, we will head to the Blue Mountains for a journey like no other. The scenic views and communities on the way up the mountains are jaw dropping. It is here where Jamaica’s delicious Blue Mountain coffee comes from. We will arrive at a lodge where we will rest and prepare for the hike of a lifetime. A four hour over night trek to the peak of the Blue Mountain 7,402 feet high, arriving just in time for sunrise. This hike is intense. So if you wish to participate, please prepare yourself properly for it in advance. Details on doing so ahead of the retreat will be provided.
We will meet the dawn of a new day at the peak of the Blue Mountain. After a 4 hour hike to arrive here, you will feel overcome with joy at this accomplishment. We will be above the clouds in line with the sun….it is absolutely magical up there! And for sure an energy center being so close to the sky and Universe. There is a pyramid structure up there, its origin and purpose a mystery waiting to be revealed. Here, we will do our mediation practice to calm our minds and gentle yoga to ease our bodies from the hike. We will observe the unique plant species and all the beauty of the mountains as we will be witnessing it for the first time in the day light having missed the beauty in the darkness on the way up. After a replenishing meal we will head off to the birthplace of reggae music…Kingston!
After morning meditation and yoga, we will head off for a Kingston city tour including Trench Town, New Kingston and of course the home of Bob Marley! Lunch the Rastafarian way. And the night, we will encounter some of Kingstons best restaurants, night life and dancehall spots. By now we will be well ready to get our whine on!
Our last day in Jamaica and one more time to really let the discipline of our rituals set in with our last morning meditation & yoga practice. We hope this trip will be enriching and gratifying to you and your soul. We suggested an evening flight so any last minute shopping or activities can be done. Our drivers will take you to the airport for your departure home. Jamaica loves you and wishes for you to soon come again.
