Follow me…

Friday 5th – Tuesday 9th October in Calabria, Italy

The Blessed Lord said: “Possessed by great curiosity, you ask me this. Listen, O   beloved. I will tell you all about the fire within the Eye, which is unsurpassed nectar: yoked to yoga, listen, beloved. || – The Tantra of the Eye, 21-22ab  (trans. Hareesh Wallis)

Hareesh and I are more than delighted to share this luscious Italy sojourn with you. This retreat combines a few of my great life passions – beach lounging, meditating, being in spiritual community with truly inspiring people, yoga, sunbathing, chanting mantra, ritual, and scriptural study/contemplation/discussion from the Non-dual Tantric tradition. Moreover, the text we will be enjoying will be new to most of us and concerns the Fire and Nectar dimensions of our practices – the burning away of our false self-concept and limited identification – and the nectarean wonder of what remains in the wake of that intensity of burning. We hope that you find a deep refreshment of your physical energy, as well as your spiritual aims and intentions, and a juicy re-igniting of your desire for your own freedom. I wish you love, and gratitude for joining us. xx Leila

Single: £795 
Double: £660 
Triple: £595 
All rooms are en suite.


Having been a retreat participant many times myself, I have done everything to make the cost as all-inclusive as possible. We have tried to avoid any hidden extras that make it more costly than you have planned. So, here’s what’s included in the price:

  • Accommodation Friday the 5th through Tuesday the 9th at Shala Mandala, a beachside yoga and meditation centre at the foot of the Sila National Park, a few miles away from the Marina Island of Capo Rizzuto Marine reserve.
  • Three Italian meals per full day (with dinner Friday and breakfast Tuesday), with tap water, coffee, and tea.
  • Guided daily practices with Hareesh and Leila including meditation, yoga, breath-work, ritual, and satsang. 
  • Airport transfer to and from Lamezia Terme International Airport

Please note what is not included:

  • Flights
  • Drinks other than those listed above
  • Umbrellas and sunbeds for the beach (there is a small charge for rental)

You are also responsible for obtaining any relevant visas to enter Italy and covering the cost of them.

We begin our program Friday in the evening, and check in will be 4 pm and after. For people who arrive in the morning, we are trying to arrange a day trip with lunch to a local sight of beauty/interest. This would also be an extra charge but is completely optional.

Please note that we have a limited number of triples, doubles, and singles – so it’s first come first serve for the availability.

it’s a total unwind for your upper back, a total de-kink for your neck, a total free-up for your ribcage and breath. It’s a shoulders back down, eyes soft, deep breath, sweet relief kind of thing. I got on the ball last night and did some of the routines we’ll be doing and what a pleasure, still and always, to take care of myself like this. This work has been part of my life for nearly 20 years. Still and always grateful.
Rolling around on small balls to release all the stick and stuck and crabby places.  Yessssss. Link in profile, this Saturday. 10-13. ⚪️

We cannot *truly compassionately operate* in mixed race/gender/ethnicity/ability/etc spaces (i.e. the world) without a clear understanding of the underlying, pervasive entanglements of white supremacist patriarchy - without a clear understanding of our own complicity and power to turn that around, and without sensitive, appropriate language and the understanding to bring systemic oppression into conversation and dialogue with all people. Learning how to hand back privilege is the work of a lifetime. It will take a lifetime of work to make a difference for future generations. Let us begin now.
A call to action. From my newsletter, just sent out. I’m beginning to speak on my WOC experience which is - a lot. Just beginning this reframe of spiritual awakening. Link in profile to receive it. 🔘

Proud to say this lady here’s the love of my life. 💛
Lucky for me, she’s funny and smart and kindness embodied and one heck of a dancer.
Happy Mother’s Day, to my Moom, Momma, Puffalump, Mommers, sweet Cheryl Lynn Seaman Sadeghee. I love you so.

Blessings of Beltane magic to each of you. May the utter radiance of your heart rose-bloom into the infinite fullness that is your birthright. May the love that you are speak louder than the shadows of your doubts, may the flame of your life burn bright and fine on this fire-night, and may the dew of the new day’s dawn be sweet on your lips this high-Spring. 🌹

  • HER
we gather at my home on may 13th, under the waxing Virgo moon, to be with Her.
this is an evening of channeling a multitude of her frequencies for an up-levelling of our potency.
gather and sit in her frequencies, bask in Her love, welcome Her light
the divine feminine healing frequencies are a gift for all of us; those of us in sister bodies, it seems to me, long for the awakening of this healing medicine from within and without
this has been my most devoted practice, loving Her, becoming intimate with Her, over this past decade
spell casting, prayer song, sharing, divination, and attunement - we will follow where She takes us when we come together, letting Her magic take its course - and most of all, this is a healing circle of love and light.
link in my profile. limited to a group of 12; 7-9 pm

always hits the mark. When you know how to rest at home, even the rough edges seem smoother. In this perceptual game of awareness called life, where have you been hanging out?
After my travels, I dove right into the second session of #thepracticesoffreedomandwellbeing Immersion. Intensive and radiantly glorious time, sharing with 25 incredible students. Our Spring feast was a true celebration of life and the community of the heart.
Holding space for a large group, moving through my own ups and downs, continually expanding my capacity to listen and attune, working with limitations and challenges, sitting for my daily practices, churning up the new ideas - all of it right here, calm and at home inside myself. It’s a frequency that allows space for everything to land - even when everything seems upside-down. 🏹
I’m delighted by the light, the lengthening day, the blossoms, and the burgeoning spring. It brightens my calm and floods my home. It seemed in the dark of the year like it would never come back, yet here it is.
Please let me know how you are and where you’ve been hanging out. What does it mean to be at home right now? Is calm on the menu? 🏹

When @heatherumlah and I come together, magic is pretty much a guarantee. ✨
She’s a master holistic and healing foods chef. I’m a deep student-teacher of esoteric spiritual practice and a practical mystic- a Tantrika and a priestess. We are both healers who have worked with people from all ages and walks of life, from celebs to working moms, high rollers to ordinary folk. We’ve both spent all of our time since our adolescence seeking a life of truth, beauty, and freedom. For both of us, it’s all about living the cosmic vastness of our heart in the most  down to earth, practical, awake, and engaged way we can.
It's fun, but it's not superficial. It's clear and articulate, but not dogmatic. It's a big call to the big picture of life, but all about the everyday choices. It's deeply personal, yet universal. And it's a board-breaking karate chop to the one-dimensionality of commercial wellness culture and products. Heather and I are educators who are here to get you in-sourcing your well-being and seeing through all the bulls**t and the fads.
We like to teach in depth, and really take people through how to set up deep practices for daily living. Our next offering is The Practices of Sacred Self Care @triyogauk soho, April 5-7.  We’ll go though making more intuitive and freedom-inducing food choices, unpick and reframe your relationship to food, discover a new way into yoga, explore bio-individuality and it’s relevance for your lifestyle, enjoy some delicious healing food meals, get activated on starting daily morning practices like meditation for clarity and insight, and trouble shoot your wellbeing concerns. It’s quite a luscious, uplifting and densely packed weekend retreat.
We also offer periodic ‘free taster sessions’ in our work. Sign up for my newsletter to find out about our next one, and/or click the link tree in my profile to sign up for our upcoming weekend at triyoga. ✨
We are so delighted to make the magic with you. ✨
