The Moreness Retreat

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Barcelona, Spain, overlooking the azure beauty of the Mediterranean, you are invited to unlock the hidden depths of your being and manifest your dreams into reality.

If you know there is more for you and you are ready to unplug from the stresses of everyday obligations, reconnect with your inner voice, and go on the adventure of a lifetime, join us.  


In the embrace of this picturesque locale on the outskirts of Barcelona, immerse yourself in a journey of self-discovery and aligned, purposeful creation.

Your body relaxes with an inner sense of rightness...

As you cross the threshold of Bell Niu (beautiful nest in Catalan), your Catalan home for 6 nights, your body relaxes with an inner sense of “rightness.” 

You feel a sense of joy lightening your footsteps and filling your heart. Then, as the week unfolds, old patterns of self-defeat begin to drop away easily, without the need to resurrect them. Your mind catches up with what your body already knows.

You feel yourself step into the flow of creative inspiration. Rather than feeling like you are standing under the full force of a cascading waterfall, the ideas arrive already sorted and prioritized for you: for your purpose, your plan, and your energy. They are “a fit” for you to carry. And you can do it with ease.

The right ideas break through, with the tools to bring them to life...

This results in a palpable KNOWING, a peaceful clarity, and a sort of delightful humor about how easy creation is.

Old patterns of difficulty, struggle, and self-sabotage are phased out in layers, as energetic upgrades continue to raise your frequency and increase the potency and strength of your capacity to create. This redirects energy that is otherwise spent holding back out-dated patterns or fighting old demons. So, there are greater inner resources, a more vital force for you to heal and align. And with which to create.

No longer are you stalled with ideas that seem grand but have no place to go. In this energy – the right ideas break through, and you’re given the tools to bring them to life and utilize them.

Welcome to Barcelona, Spain!

Spain in the spring!
Barcelona is in northern Spain, in the area known as Catalonia. Catalonians are passionately independent. They have their own language, culture, and heritage, and an incredible history. The region has a wealth of world-renowned art, music, and architecture. Perhaps most well-known, Antoni Gaudi, is one of the most influential architects of the first half of the 20th-century. Gaudí is best known for his intricate structures throughout Barcelona including the famous Basílica de la Sagrada Família. 

What will this energy quicken in you?

Step out of your daily life and discover your MORENESS!

Let’s shine light on what you really want in this next part of your life. In this 6-night retreat, surrounded by the gentle and provocative energies of Catalonia, you will bring into focus the dreams that have danced at your outer edges.

Key to replenishment, rejuvenation, and discovery is rest. Savor nourishing, gorgeous food designed to nurture your body while delighting your senses.
A sense of inner calm beckons you deeper into a state of relaxation and receiving. New pictures dance across your inner landscape, stimulated by the beauty around you. A feeling of unlimited possibility beckons.

What is being awakened?

As each day winds down, reflect on your day as you sip a glass of Spanish wine by the pool, gazing at the sun setting on the Mediterranean Sea. Feel gratitude fill your heart for the gifts you are receiving.

Your Week

You are welcome to arrive on site any time on Saturday, April 20th, after 1 PM. We begin our week together with a welcome gathering and dinner at 7 PM.

Each day will build on the one before it. While we have a structure and a rhythm, we embrace flow and fluidity to respond to the needs and desires of the participants.

Breakfast food will be available for you to enjoy on your own timeline.

How your amazing days look...

On days 2 through 5, our group session begins at 10 AM.

Lunch will be served each day at 1 PM (except on Thursday when we are in Barcelona).

Each afternoon, you choose: you can have personal reflection time, a private Turaya Touch session with Laurie, or a private coaching session with Yvonne. Or return to enjoy the beach!

You can also take a quick taxi ride to visit two medieval sites in nearby Calafell: 

  • Ciutadella Ibèrica de Calafell: €4 fee The Iberian Citadel of Calafell is one of the most remarkable archaeological sites of the Iberian times (6th to 2nd centuries BC) in Spain due to its singularity. Its experimental reconstruction "in situ" makes the Citadel an appropriate place for all range of public in order to know how the Cossetan Iberians lived more than 2000 years ago.
  • Castell de la Santa Creu & Parque Arqueológico : €4 fee The Castle of Santa Cruz de Calafell is a fortified enclosure from the medieval period, documented for the first time in the year 1037 and is located in the historic center of Calafell, also of medieval origin. The Castle and its surroundings make up an open-air Archaeological Park, which explains, through a renewed museography, episodes in the history of the municipality.

Late afternoon at 4 PM is open time for a snack and a chat. This is time to reflect while enjoying one of our amazing chef Taty's creations.

A full group dinner with wine will be served each evening around 7 PM.

The Food

This is the Mediterranean, where chefs have an abundance of local produce and the bounty of the sea at their fingertips. Picture tapas, olives, prawns, Jamón Iberico, and gorgeous produce.

We are thrilled to have Taty Fernandez as our chef for the retreat. Taty, the heart and founder of Taste Box and Baobá, brings a wealth of culinary expertise and passion to our table. Taty´s creations reflect not only technical finesse but also a deep emotional connection to the food. It's an embodiment of Taty's culinary journey, a place where flavors tell stories, and each dish is a celebration of her rich background. With her vision and expertise, our dining experience will transcend the ordinary.

If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know in advance.  

Embrace Serenity in the Early Dawn

Morning Awe Walk (Monday and Wednesday): This is optional! Some people prefer to sleep in.)

Imagine the world in a tranquil pause, the first light of day casting a gentle glow. Outside, the serene beauty of Cunit awaits, wrapped in a blanket of quiet calm. Join us in an early morning stroll through the streets of this authentic Spanish neighborhood as we descend the hill towards the captivating beach of Calafell.

Note: It is a 15-minute walk from Bell Nui to the beach. 

Here, golden sands meet the rhythmic dance of endless waves, framed by gracefully swaying palm trees. It’s a haven of peace, a place where you can choose to sit and get lost in the meditative ebb and flow of the sea, indulge in a refreshing dip, or accompany us on a rejuvenating beach walk. This idyllic setting offers a moment of tranquility, a chance to recharge and embrace the new day.

This leisurely 15-minute walk to the beach is an invitation, not an obligation – a chance to connect with nature and find inner peace as your day begins.

Elevate Your Senses with a Conscious Wine Tasting experience with Mark Derksen

Immerse yourself in an enriching sensory journey at our conscious wine-tasting event. Engage all your senses—sight, smell, taste, touch, and even hearing—as we explore the symphony of aromas, flavors, and textures in each glass of Spanish wine.

This experience goes beyond mere tasting; it's about heightening your awareness and deepening your appreciation of wine's subtle nuances. With each sip, we'll uncover the complexities that make every variety unique, enhancing not just your palate but your sensory perception as a whole.

Whether you're a seasoned connoisseur or a curious novice, our conscious wine tasting is an invitation to connect with the essence of wine, creating a deeper, more mindful appreciation of this timeless art. 

Mark Derksen is our host during this special wine-tasting event. Mark has been involved with wine since he was 16 years old. He started working in a wine store for 7 years, owned his own online wine shop, and has been trained as a Wine and Spirit Education Trust connoisseur. He has a vast knowledge and keen interest in wine and will share many fascinating stories. 



Visit La Sagrada Familia

Our last full day together will be an adventure in Barcelona with a private tour of La Sagrada Familia, the glorious Gaudi-designed cathedral.

We are hoping to have a meditation in the extraordinary energy here.  On Laurie's first visit to La Sagrada Familia, she stood bathed in the light streaming through the fabulous stained glass with tears streaming down her face.

We will enjoy lunch afterward at a traditional Catalan restaurant before returning to Bell Nui for our farewell dinner and celebration.(Lunch cost is not included.)

Getting from Barcelona Airport to Sants Train Station by train couldn’t be easier. The RENFE R2 Nord Line leaves every 30 minutes from the Airport Train Station and reaches Sants Train Station in just 20 minutes. However, the Airport Train Station lies outside T2. Hence, if you are landing at T1, you’ll have to use the free airport shuttle bus that runs 24/7 from one terminal to the other. The bus operates on a 5-7-minute frequency. Traveling time from T1 to T2 is approximately 10 minutes.

The R2 Nord Trains have available routes from 5:42 am to 11:38 pm. Their ticket is 4.60€/4.60$. You can get your ticket from the airport’s automatic machines. Conveniently, automatic ticket vendors accept both cash and credit cards.

From the Barcelona Train Station you will then take a train to Segur de Calafell (train station).

We'll pick you up at Segur de Calafell for a short ride to the Retreat Center.

Of course, there are also taxis available outside the Terminals, should you prefer to do that.

Say Yes

It’s time to come together into the quantum realm of potential. And remember, there’s no way you can dream bigger or support more clients if you don’t amplify your soul-care first!

If you’ve been running nonstop these days and you have been feeling depleted, then this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for to step outside your everyday routine and sink deep into your inner knowing so you can return home able to claim your life and ready to be of service.

So whether you need a break from your daily grind, know it’s time to check in and reassess your direction in life or business, craving space to journal and dream or can feel you’re on the verge of a major breakthrough, then time to yourself within the support of the group is guaranteed to shake your potential free and rejuvenate you to do what you are in the world to do.

Collectively, we’ll be blending our energies with the potency of the land to create an experience exponentially more amazing than your mind can fathom.

And, wonderfully, you do this in the community of others. You aren't alone!

But you’ll have to say yes to join us to see. We need YOU to be there!
