Practitioner Retreat on the beautiful island of Gozo (Malta)

Retreat on the beautiful island of Gozo (Malta)! Get away from it all, take some time out, prepare for the winter, and get ready to explore and express!
An intensive 5-day retreat focused on the connection between inner life and outer expression, delivered by Carolin Zeitler, Nicole Bugeja and Maria Lip-Ka at Tal-Fanal Village in Gozo,  from 21 to 26 November, 2017.

 Retreat & Regenerate

Words for the heart and soul:

“Sense, intuit, flow with what is. Retreat a little to find where nourishment and regeneration are needed. Move, sing, dance into yourself and connect, breathe, explore. Then come back out in playful exchange with others, regenerate, inspire and be inspired. Experience rhythm, bounce, trust and lightness in motion.”


Words for the mind:

During the retreat, each participant will have the opportunity to connect introspection and creative expression. The theme of ‘retreat & regenerate’ will be guiding us through the experience, preparing us for the coming season of winter. Daily sessions with the practitioners will be dedicated to the exploration of movement and dance, dramatic and vocal expression. By the end, each participant will leave with helpful tools needed to subsequently build upon and further develop his/her retreat experience into increased well-being through artistic expression.


Carolin Zeitler is a dance and movement therapist, a performer, a serial entrepreneur and a women’s empowerment activist. All her work is tied together by the common theme of bringing more connection into the world.
