8 Day New Moon Wellness Retreat

Laura Mary Baptista

January 5 - 12, 2019

January 5-12, 2019

Since ancient times, the ritual around the New Moon has been a time to go within, recharge and reset our mind, body and spirit. A time for reflection and intention setting before the new cycle begins. A time to get in touch with your higher self, awaken your deepest desires and free yourself of whatever isn’t serving you. This is the perfect opportunity to start paving the path towards a new cycle of better health, wellness, happiness and wholeness.
