Summer Retreat in Spain
Joy and Well-being through Sound and Creativity, Sacred Rituals and Ceremony, under the Spanish Sun

with Michele Averard (Association of Sound Therapy) and Mieke Polfliet (Thuis in Jezelf – At Home in Your Self)

What to expect?
This retreat is an invitation for you, men and women alike, to reconnect with your inner source of joy: your creativity, sensitivity, passion and dreams. Together with a group of like-minded people, enjoying the beautiful setting of the Dome Centre in the Costa Blanca area, you will get all the time and space you need to embark on this wonderful journey to your inner and outer ‘self’.
We will facilitate your exploration process by offering tools, exercises and experiences centered around 3 key topics:
- Sound as a vehicle for personal transformation: finding your own sound/your own voice
- Creativity as a vehicle to express yourself/your self, and your relation to the world, in your own unique way
- Sacred Ceremony as a conscious vehicle to reflect, focus your intentions, visualise your dreams, ask forgiveness, say thanks … and share your experiences with your ‘fellow travelers’
See a short film about the Summer Retreat in Spain:
There will be time for playfulness and laughter, song and dance, but also for introspection and reflection, silence and stillness. Obviously you will also have time to relax around the swimming pool, enjoy the Spanish sun, integrate your experiences, have a chat with each other or go for a walk around the village.

About the Dome Center – La Cúpula
The Dome in Alcalali is a family run place in the Jalón valley. Michele and Nestor have built a lovely Spanish finca in the middle of beautiful mountains. Don’t expect luxury accommodation, but what you can expect is charm and great energy from people who share their work with love. The white Dome was especially built for sound healing therapies, so there are great acoustics and an amazing peaceful energy inside to practice meditation or yoga.
Alcalali is just 1 hour and a 10 minutes’ drive from Alicante airport and 1,5 hour from Valencia airport. Airport transportation can be easily (and affordably) arranged by rental car or with the Beniconnect shuttle service.
At the Dome there is a finca with 2 bedrooms, dining room, kitchen and lounge area. In the garden there are two more wooden cabins and an annex with two connected rooms. All bathrooms are shared and the bedrooms sleep 2, 3 or 4 people (most of them are twins). The finca and its gardens and pool area offer plenty of space to read a book or relax in private if you wish.

Alcalalí is a charming Spanish town in the middle of the Jalón valley. The finca is surrounded by lovely mountains and straight from it you can make beautiful walks. Just a 15 minutes’ walk along the river, you will find Jalón which, on Saturday mornings, is invaded by Spaniards and tourists who arrive in town for the amazing Jalón Market (with antiques, clothes, shoes, books, food, jewellery…).
If you like to take a dip in the sea, the lovely town of Jávea is just 35 minutes away by car, with trendy beachbars and a chill out scene. The beach of Calpe can be reached in 20 minutes.
