The journey begins now, always now and there’s always that second chance, just holding out its hand, inviting you to live your highest potential, but first we need to take a chance. Kevin James and Susana have set the space for you and a small group of like minds, to take that chance together, to step off the old treadmill and explore what calls you from within.
The music is the vehicle that allows us to effectively and ease-fully open the door to a new life, a new direction, and a new appreciation for what we already have. Move your body with yoga, walks, swims, dance, and shake off the old to embrace the new with this transformative gathering.
COVID-19: We at Shambala are planning for the future, we can hold retreats for a limited number of guests, and we have a very flexible cancellation policy. We are carefully following all of the regulations and are in a continuous conversation with Skinnskattebergs’ Kommun to ensure that we are doing the best we can to make this a safe experience for you. For more information on how we are dealing with Covid, please visit our Covid page.
The thing we’d like to share about this gathering is that it’s really about creating a feeling of coming home to the heart and being part of a community. The program leaves a lot of space to relax and all activities are optional if you need time to swim or take a walk and just unwind in the beautiful natural surroundings.
Kevin Morning Practice Toning work:
“I don’t have words to describe what I feel. A deep inner happiness and serenity. A place deeply rooted in me. I see so much beauty around me. So much depth we have experienced and at the same time we had a lot of fun. I tell other people of our week and they immediately feel the passion, pure joy, love, connectedness. It was magical! I thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Thank’s Kevin that you showed us your way of life. You are in my heart!”
“During this retreat, I discovered the beauty and power of mantras and I was reconnected with presence, which was profoundly joyful for me. There definitively is a deep quality of space and acceptance in Kevin’s and Susana’s work. The group was a delight, and each moment special, because there were no expectations, though a powerful intention. I absolutely recommend this retreat (…) It’s a wonderful opportunity to let the miracle of life be, and a dream come true! Beyond words, and with the heart. With so much love and gratitude”
