JULY 30 – AUGUST 6, 2017
Haramara Retreat Centre, Sayulita, Mexico
Are you ready to devote 7 luxury days and nights to uncovering the full potential of
your infinitely loving heart?
What if you loved yourself fully?
What if you accepted and embraced and integrated all your weaknesses, proudly displayed your strengths, took the best care of yourself?
How would that affect your relationships, your career, your daily life?
Of course most people are fully aware that self-love is at the core of all human problems. But very few people know what to do about it or how to cultivate self-love within.
We do. We know how to step out of the shadows into the light. We know how to turn self-loathing into self-love, internal conflict into inner peace, unconscious habit into powerful embodied presence.
How? Because we have already walked that path, and now we are here to lead you there too.
Join us in Mexico on a LUXURY yoga-inspired retreat designed to clear blockages to self-acceptance, boost self-esteem, and lead you straight back into the heart of self-love – into your heart centre!
Start each day with a guided meditation practice led by Ben Ralston designed to relax your body and focus your mind, leaving you clear, calm, centred and on-point.
After breakfast, Ben will lead a pranayama (breathing) session, before Kara-Leah takes you on a 2 hour yoga immersion focused on intimacy with breath and energetic flow. Expect a combination of postures, breath-work, visualisation and fun.

Enjoy a delicious vegetarian gourmet lunch served in the spacious open air dining room with spectacular views that overlook the jungle and the ocean. All meals are tastefully prepared with fresh local ingredients and beautifully served with artistic presentations.
After lunch, Ben will work with the group on releasing any resistance to your expression of authentic Self and whatever is getting in the way of you fully loving yourself.
During the day there will be plenty of downtime to chill by the pool, head down to Haramara’s private beach, get a massage or simply sit and enjoy views of the native and untouched tropical vegetation that surrounds the retreat centre.
Evenings will be a time for socialising and vibing with the tribe in organised and casual gatherings.
You will leave this retreat deeply grounded, heart-centered and empowered with a set of practical tools for expanding into presence and joy.

What People Say
“Heart of Joy Bali was breath-taking both during and post-retreat.
First off, Ben and Kara-Leah live what they teach. They come from a place of integrity, with a great capacity for compassion and making space for everyone’s emotional needs. Add to the mix a group of people willing to open up the deepest, darkest parts of themselves to heal their souls; it made for an incredible environment to learn, heal, and truly understand the power of community. This was a fully integrated experience that not only helped with healing, it also gave us tools to continue raising our spiritual frequencies and our lives. I returned stronger and more committed to creating a life of value for myself.”
