Sacred Rest with Nature
a soulful retreat with Youmin Yap and Tania Ho
– November 29 to December 4, 2024 –

Perfect for anyone who wants to wrap up the current year with gentle rest

And enter the new year with authentic clarity and renewed energy

Sacred Rest with Nature is a deliciously restful retreat. It is a space to slow down from the doing, and tune into your inner rhythm. It is a time to embrace rest as a sacred practice.

Through nurturing your body, mind, and soul with Nature, you can cut through all the noise and start to listen to your inner voice – the voice that matters the most.

This 6-days-5-nights retreat is designed to provide wellness experiences to guide you to be in rest, such as forest bathing, yoga nidra, cacao ceremony, and shamanic journey. The retreat program is also sensitively curated to offer spaciousness – downtime to reflect and integrate, to enjoy the facilities at Museflower Retreat & Spa, or to simply to be.

Why is rest important?

Most of us are addicted to busyness. We push ourselves to create more, to achieve more, and to tick off more boxes from our to-do lists every day.

More and more of us have forgotten the importance of rest, as shown by the rising cases of anxiety, chronic fatigue and burnout all over the world.

Nature is the best teacher for rest. If we look at the seasonal cycle of Nature, the winter season is as important as other seasons. Even though during winter it seems like nothing much is going on the surface, but in the darkness the soil is preparing and replenishing itself to be ready and to support the next cycle of crops.

So when we gently rest to reflect on the current year, we are giving ourselves space to return to our center and to allow clarity arise.

 What We Will Cover in This Retreat:

✔ Discover and experience the 7 types of rests: Physical, Mental, Emotional, Creative, Spiritual, Sensory, Social

✔ Forest bathing

✔ Nature Yoga nidra

✔ Shamanic journey

How Do We Rest?

For each day of the retreat program, you are invited to receive various rest medicine inspired from Nature’s four elements: Earth, Water, Fire and Air,

Every day we will lie down and rest in yoga nidra, a yogic sleep meditation.

We rest in the element of Earth through forest bathing and shamanic journey.

We rest in the element of Water through cacao ceremony and forgiveness practice.

We rest in the element of Fire through fire release ceremony and story circle.

We rest in the element of Air through creative tea blending and kirtan.

Sacred rest is not only the time to practice doing nothing, but it is also a time to tap into your heart and to listen to your soul’s whisper.

Rest is also productive. When we allow ourselves to rest, we are replenishing our inner Earth, Water, Fire and Air. We are then ready for something new to unfold for the new year.
