Sakura Virtual Retreat

Recognize. Resolve. Release.

14th of November 2020.




Part of being a human being is going through challenges and traumatic experiences to learn, heal, and grow.

Sometimes we dismiss how some experiences can be traumatic. 

We might think of the word trauma as something drastic that we have to go through, but sometimes the small things that we might have gone through as children can create a traumatic effect.

Other than the traumas that we personally go through, we can also carry family and ancestral traumas in our DNA.

And when we don't recognize or realize what we are carrying, we continue a cycle of unconscious behaviour.

In this retreat, we cover how to recognize, resolve, and release traumas with loving-kindness.

The schedule:

  • 9:00AM - 10:30AM  Meet, Greet & Release with Ghalia.

Starting the day with a brief introduction of the group, setting an intention for the day, and practicing a grounding yoga sequence focused on releasing all the different areas in the body we store emotions or traumas.

  • 11:30AM - 12:30AM Healing Family Trauma, Anxiety & Depression Holistically with Dr. Ameet Aggarwal.

Understanding the root cause of mental health issues, and the impact of stress and trauma on mental health. As well as understanding how to release family trauma and healing the part using family constellation therapy.

  • 1:30PM - 3:00PM  Embodied Compassion that can Transform Trauma and Practices that Address Ancestral Trauma with Ron de Brito.

Grounded Aware Presence and the practice of Embodied Nonviolent Communication can help us to sense our inner & outer resources and lavish compassion into our places of difficult feelings such as fear, frustration, and anger. By exploring how we can express our deepest pain and transform these feelings in our bodies, we can use our compassionate connection within ourselves as a vibrancy we can extend to others, in the present and the past, with grief for past traumas. We can create ways to unearth and speak to passed down trauma with grief and love in our everyday lives. 

  • 4:30PM - 5:30PM  Healing the cuts of rejection with Marcela Widrig.

Rejection holds pain, and when it happens it can even change your future.

But it doesn’t have to reduce who you are in the world. The pain simply has to be felt. When you
give the pain of rejection breath and space to move through you and transform, you're
taking care of your heart and can stay true to what you want.

In this talk, we’ll open an embodied way of healing the hurt of rejection. You’ll learn a practical
exercise to soften into your body, un-do the hold an old story has on you, and open space for a
past hurt to move through you, as you breathe and digest your past experience.

  • 6:00PM - 7:00PM  The Light of the Soul Meditation with Ângelo.
