Your Surfing & Rainforest Adventure!

Go on a rainforest trek that breaks at a waterfall where you can lose yourself - to find yourself - release and wash away your cares, and revive your body, mind, and spirit. Just a few minutes away, the sun, sand, and surf awaits - inviting you to play and engage LIFE to its fullest!

Embody Your Human Potential commences its in-person, wellness retreat and getaways across the sun, sand and seascapes of the 7,107 Islands, Philippines, beginning with BALER, AURORA (a surfing town in Luzon), this September 3 to 4, 2022 (Saturday to Sunday), for your,  "Embody Vitality: Baler Surfing & Rainforest Adventure!"

Nature is essential to our well-being because we are natural creatures of life! The further we are from nature and our natural states, the more stress we take on our bodies-hearts-spirits that eventually takes its toll as stress-related ailments or imbalances that can wreak havoc in our health, relationships, success and wealth areas!

 

To curb this growing concern, we at Embody Your Human Potential have designed these nature-involved wellness retreats to take you on various sun, sand and seascapes of the country to give you an appreciation of nature, your being, and how the two go hand-in-hand in leading a truly healthy, wholesome, complete and happy life and living today!

 

What You Can Look Forward To: 

  • A Rainforest Trek - trees do not just hold the soil to the earth preventing erosion or bear fruits for us to eat but emit oxygen that is vital to our well-being. Each breath we take powers our cells, so exposure to and enjoyment in a rainforest really allows us this inbreath of vitality we cannot take from buildings or cities!

  • A Waterfalls Bath - waterfalls emit negative ions that are essential to our well-being.  Just as a storm cleans and clears the atmosphere of debris, bathing in a waterfall gives us the opportunity to clear energy pathways and release stale energies or those that are no longer useful for us to create and make space for the new!  It is perfect for people who are going through life transitions or break-ups - to help release negative energy attachments or disconnect emotional chords that no longer serve! Perfect to revive the mind, heart, body and soul!

  • Streams Bathing - the pathway of the rainforest to the waterfalls is lined with streams you can also bathe in, giving the same cleansing effect as the waterfalls.  Go underneath one and take an energetic shower to cleanse your spirit and wash away your cares, making room for the new!

  • Surfing - BALER, AURORA is a surf town, and you will find beginner's surfing guides anywhere to help you experience how it is to ride a wave and let it take you to shore, in ease! It's fun - and a  mind-trip!  If you've ever skated as a kid, you should find this easy!  The essence of the exercise is letting go and enjoying the ride - letting Life take you where it leads in the most fun way! You just need to stand and balance!

  • Cozy Accommodations - we are partnered with some of the friendliest and coziest accommodations so you can enjoy your stay at beach front and fall asleep to the sound of waves, in the arms of nature, safely.

  • Wholesome Food - our accommodations partner  provides wholesome, vegan-friendly food for those on their quest for their happiest wellness experience but also provides meat alternatives for those who are not fasting and want to enjoy and load up on iron, protein and B vitamins from meat, during their stay! On the other hand, participants are free to roam around the town and eat wherever they like, because there is not a shortage of restaurants anywhere - with the kind of fare that titillates both the palate, stomach and soul! You can enjoy at will!

  • Your Wellness Workshop - Maria is excited to take a few moments of your retreat to give you a workshop on detoxification techniques and the daily habits we can honor to help us lead wholesome, balanced and healthy lives today! Make sure you bring your notebooks and pens for notes!

  • Your Yoga Experience - Maria is excited to lead you through a beginner-friendly, reviving yoga practise right at beach front that can help you enjoy and experience the power of your breath, mindful movement and rest, for vitality and well-being! Breath, movement and rest are key to vitality and we will honor it in this simple practise which you can take with you wherever you go

  • Luxury 2-Way Transport - we will be taking luxury bus transport that leaves Manila in the late evening of September 2, 2022 (Friday) and we arrive in BALER, AURORA early morning, September 3, 2022 (Saturday).  We enjoy our RETREAT  whole day Saturday and  leave September 4, 2022 (Sunday) 2PM after lunch.
