creative regeneration retreat 2021
at terrealuma - provisional dates 2-9th august click here for pics from 2018 and 2019 to get a flavour (2020 was off)
are you dreaming of a state of total immersion...?
to the mix of meditation, focusing on felt senses in the body, freewriting like zen arrows and intuitively painting, we're adding yoga (of the magic rather than the forcing kind), massages and reiki for energetic support, food from the permaculture garden cooked by an expert chef, music, bonfires and everything the land and all who live on her have to bring.
no achievements in mind except for restoring and releasing your natural state, a state which generates energy.
* we'll be a small group, no more than 10
* food will be provided, made from the permaculture garden, by maciek from terrealuma who's an expert professional chef
* all art materials will be provided
* no particular experience or skill is required in art, meditation or anything else!
* transport - nearest city - rzeszow (poland). we can transport you to and from the airport or station, if necessary.
* accommodation - you are welcome to bring a tent and camp on our campsite, or stay in the nearby dubiecko castle hotel (polish site zamek dubiecko), we can pick you up from the hotel in the morning and take you back again late evening.
* cost - the workshop costs £600, a deposit of £100 will secure a place. payment plans can be arranged. we have reduced the price as this year is pretty difficult for everyone
all proceeds will go towards building terrealuma.

'I took part in the creative regeneration workshop last summer at the Terrealuma refuge and I am a better man for it. The aim of the workshop is to release any stored up tensions that are blocking creative flow. Sarah Luczaj employs many unblocking tools, including free writing, intuitive painting and focusing. If those three weren't enough, we also were exposed to reiki, yoga, qi gong, mantra chantings and afternoon meanderings through the forested hills which led to experimental "practices" in free-form screaming (or finding our own animal sounds). The group bonded immediately, sharing intimate aspects of the self in so many forms. We camped together, sang songs by the bonfire, and probably ate the most simple and enjoyable meals of our lives (thank you wonder-cook Maciek). If we could only live like this full-time....perhaps the workshop is a reminder that we can'.

'My time at Terrealuma was magical - for so many reasons. The land was breathtaking - breathtaking in a way that no picture can convey. What a special space on the earth to be able to spend some time. The people that gathered there were beautiful human beings and such a pleasure to spend time with and get to know. The food that came out of that kitchen was a dream - Poland is not known for its vegan food, but as a vegan I received the most gorgeous creations for every meal and was so so grateful to chef Maciek and the special care he put into his dishes. I don't even have words for the massage and body work sessions that I had with Asha - I've never experienced anything like that before or since. If you have an opportunity to work with her do not hesitate for one single second.
And of course there was the Creative Regeneration retreat itself and the magnificent Sarah. Our days were filled with the perfect balance of structure and free form. Alone time and working in pairs. Sitting in stillness and roaming the land. Writing with pen to paper and splattering paint every which way. Sarah has a gift for knowing what the group needed at any given moment and gently guided us with her wisdom and intuition. I felt so cared for and so nourished working with Sarah and going on the Creative Regeneration journey with her at Terrealuma. I hope to one day be able to return'.
'My time at the Terrealuma last summer is an experience that meant a lot for me and supported me in quite a difficult time. I’ve been to a couple of Sarah’s Creative Regeneration workshops in Glasgow, which I loved, but going through the process at Terrealuma is really something else. The nature holds you and grounds you, the most delicious food made by Maciek nourishes you and comforts you, the workshops carry you gently into your inner world and give you insight and creative energy, the people are there for you and you are there for them and you really feel like a part of community. I left feeling rested, taken care of and so grateful that such a place exists. I hope to see you there this summer!'

'Participating in Creative Regeneration Retreat was an unforgettable, life-changing experience for me!
Fantastic, supportive community of people with beautiful energy and reconnecting with nature helped me to charge my batteries and gain the energy that I needed so much...As a result I did quit my job where I was no longer happy since quite some time, the first day after coming back from the retreat! Terrealuma gave me so much power to dare to be more myself and I am really, really grateful for it.
Amazing place, amazing people and experiences...
And, not to forget, the legendary food prepared by Maciek!!!
Can't wait to be back this year :):):)'
