You are invited to a Special Solstice Celebration:
Calling all lovers of nature, all in need of healing & ancient wisdom initiation, to join us on a world sacred land, for a transformational retreat with Shiva Rea, Sivani Mata Francis and a Krishna Das guest appearance, during the rare alignment of the Summer Solstice and Full Moon in Mani, Greece.☀️

All practice levels are welcome. Come as you are! Our Prana Flow will support both those needing to rest and restore with our daily lunar flow, and those who are ready to jump up to a higher level of energy with our solar–lunar flows.

Together, we will celebrate the healing Shakti of earth goddesses,
such as
Rea, mother of gods & goddesses,
Gaia, sacred living earth, and other powerful divine energies of this ancient power spot,
as we amplify our intentions to revive and thrive!

Our retreat intention is to support you in your sacred embodiment. Our pilgrimage to the sacred site of Ancient Messene will forever transform our felt sense of health & connection with our own healing life-force within.

On June 20, starting with a Solstice Meditation, Shiva will lead us through a Prana Flow practice. In the evening, after a mesmerising sunset dinner, we welcome you to a powerful Solstice Kirtan with Shiva, Sivani Mata, and Krishna Das in a rare in person guest appearance. Daily we will cultivate the practice and rhythm of vital health and collective self-care in a retreat of balance, vitality and embodying the sacred flow of Shakti. Shiva will introduce us to her signature Prana Mandala Flow- Solar and Lunar Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Soulful Wellness practices. Sivani Mata will offer Music as medicine: kirtan and prayer song in celebration of the Earth.

Each day we will call in the sunrise-sunset for invoking vital energy and rest and dream with the moonrise and moonset in the spirit of our re-connection retreat. We will invoke the ​​Goddesses for inspiration on the parallels to our own approaches to health as sacred embodiment with yoga and ancient Greece. Be inspired to learn more of the Goddess’s teachings, divine attributes, symbols, and healing powers. Your guides are longtime pilgrims and global teachers dedicated to the honouring of our living earth, Gaia, and the realisation of the wisdom of the Goddess traditions around the world and specifically within Shakti Tantra.

Schedule of daily themes: Day 1: Welcoming the Solstice; Day 2: Sacred Temple Pilgrimage;
Day 3: Unveiling the Wisdom of the Ancient Health Goddesses, Hestia, Hygeia, Artemis;
Day 4: Reconnection and Reflection; Day 5: Celebration and Closure

Post Retreat Continuation: You will be given tools, Prana Vinyasa Flows to continue your daily life, and practices for your personal vital health cultivation. Combined with the arts of chant, dance and movement meditation with kirtan you will embody a complete integrated model of movement, daily ritual, and sacred connection in harmony with nature.

Sivani Mata Francis

Sivani Mata Francis is an artist moved by a sensory and elemental exploration of life through practice that evokes the liminal experience of trance-like states of consciousness, and the centring of the awareness in heart. She believes in this process of deep inner work as a way to cultivate a harmonic relationship with the Earth. She is grateful for this journey she finds herself on and the practices that support her path
