Discover The Divine Feminine

THE ALHAMBRA, SET AGAINST THE SNOWY BACKDROP OF THE SIERRA NEVADA IN GRANADA.
WELCOME TO AN ANCIENT BOHO CITY MADE OF LABYRINTH MAZES FULL OF FOOD FOR THE SOUL.
A LABYRINTH OF COBBLED WINDING STREETS, ENDLESS ROWS OF ALADDIN’S CAVES, MUSICIANS, ARTISTS, HENNA TATTOOISTS AND FLAMENCO GYPSIES.
GRANADA IS THE BOHO MECCA OF SPAIN BEARING WITNESS THE FUSION OF ANCIENT ARABIC AND TRADITIONAL SPANISH CULTURE.
IT’S VIBRANT AND AT THE SAME TIME CHILLED, IT BURSTS WITH CREATIVITY - SYMBOLIZED BY THE POMEGRANATE, WHICH GRANADA IS NAMED AFTER.
IT'S ANCIENT STREETS DECORATED WITH POMEGRANATES AND INFINITE EIGHT POINTED STARS REMINDING US OF DEEP, RICH EVER CONNECTED NATURE.
ARE YOU READY TO INVOKE A MAGICAL AND PASSIONATE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME; WHERE YOU COME BACK AS A FIRED UP DIVINE FEMININE?
READ ON TO SEE IF THE TRANSFORMATIONAL TRUTH OF ASTROTAROT FLAMENCO RETREAT IS FOR YOU...
If you are...
Spellbound by the Stars, tantalised by the Tarot, fired up by Flamenco, hungry for History, craving Culture and dying to feel Divine.
If you're anything like me... you've had the odd spa day or weekend getaway, where you get some instant relief but as soon as you are back nothing changed (apart from your bank balance) and the fact there’s been no deep lasting internal healing just made it feel like an indulgent waste of time.
The normal mainstream social life just doesn't cut it for you.
Going out, means conforming to consuming and conversing in things you know only starve your soul, mess your mind and bind your body further, it just feels like an expensive insane pursuit that you don't even want to spend money on!
Your soul craves for an experience that leaves your mind mesmerised, your soul sacred and your body the true embodiment of a healthy passionate Goddess!
You...Desire to experience life at a deeper level.
I’ve been there - and I mean literally been there!
Back in 2016, my business was a rip-roaring but the price to pay was HIGH, and I mean SKY HIGH.
It nearly cost me, my family, as I had a breakdown and took off around the world in search of something.
That thing I didn’t find - until I landed in Granada.
I spent sixteen magical months in this incredible city - .reviving my soul. Continually immersed in healing..
Air - with its incredible sunsets, Sierra Nevada backdrops and Moorish canopies of the eight-pointed stars of infinity.
- Water - Granada is home to the best hammams in the world.
Earth - with its rich history and culture, a melting pot of different faiths, and it's very "Moorish"! Influences.
Fire - with it’s passionate Flamenco, fire for life and 360 days of Sun!
After sixteen months I had undergone the most profound healing of forty years. I returned back to Bath and back to my family a different person, a person cleansed from deep within.
After living there, and holding two previous retreats there I know the power of this place and it ain't for the faint-hearted.
Especially as Natalie Solgala Kaz and I plug you into the power of the divine feminine download non- stop in a weekend.
Granada is a deep ancient city, almost volcanic in it's landscape and definitely volcanic in its power.
Both Natalie and I know the hidden gems and secret side of this city that is literally home to the divine feminine.
So before we continue let's see if it's for you:
Granada is hot and hilly, this is a physical retreat with lots of walking and dancing.
I personally have slight weight, mobility issues and mild Asthma and I am fine (the dry heat of Granada helps my Asthma) but in the past we had people who struggled because they had:
- Fibromyalgia ( this lady did all the activities through sheer desire and determination and had a great time but did not find it easy).
- Obesity and respiratory conditions which meant they couldn’t face the walking or dancing, these people expected a spa type retreat - please note the only spa element to this retreat is the pool at the venue and your one evening Hammam.
The energy of Granada is deep, intense and passionate, the way to describe it is emotionally volcanic.
This is the city of Persephone, who was abducted by Hades and taken to the Underworld, there she ate a pomegranate seed which permanently sewed her there, but Demeter (her mother) and Hades struck a bargain so she could rise again at Spring, and descend in Autumn.
This means Persephone had to learn to fall in love with the darkness as much as the light - which she did.
This is the experience of Granada.
It has a powerful clashing history between the first ever Jewish Kabbalstic scholars, The Spanish Inquisition, Catholism and Islam, and Flamenco Gypsies, and it’s energies are intense.
If you are looking for “a nice holiday” go to Costa Del Sol.
If you are looking for a fusion full of cultures and symbols that activate a deeper understanding of yourself and you are prepared to go to the underworld in yourself and face it so you can rise then welcome to AstroTarotFlamenco Goddess in Granada!
It's a transformational retreat, which means that we need to hold you for the entirety of the experience, therefore it’s not a pick and mix, your are in or out.

IN RETURN WE ASK THAT YOU …
Follow Don Miguel Ruiz Five Agreements:
THE FIRST AGREEMENT – BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
Speak with integrity and say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
THE SECOND AGREEMENT – DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering
THE THIRD AGREEMENT – DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
THE FOURTH AGREEMENT – ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
Doing your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are tired as opposed to well-rested. Under any circumstance, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
THE FIFTH AGREEMENT – BE SKEPTICAL, BUT LEARN TO LISTEN
Don’t believe yourself or anybody else unconditionally. Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear: Is it really the truth? Listen to the intent behind the words and you will understand the real message.
“By practicing the Five Agreements, what you are really doing is respecting everything in creation. You are respecting your dream; you are respecting everybody else’s dream. If you use these tools, your effort is really for everyone, because your joy, your happiness, your peace, and your heaven are contagious. When you are happy, the people around you are happy too, and it inspires them to change their own world.” – Don Miguel Ruiz

MEET YOUR TUTOR: NATALIE SOLGALA KAZ
The first time Natalie saw Flamenco, she fell in love. A life-changing moment that began as 5 classes a week in London to moving to Seville, Spain, to study professionally.
After 10 years of study, she moved to Granada where she started to form her own choreographies, a flamenco group and courses teaching Flamenco - her course has been recently named as one of the top ten Flamenco Courses by The Times.
Natalie met Tiffany a year before moving to Spain, when she came on her Tarot Course. It was what that unveiled that lead her to take the leap in moving to Spain, and she´s never looked back.
Since then Natalie undertook more Tarot study with Tiffany through which a firm friendship grew.
Since childhood, Natalie has had an avid interest in astrology, and in particular the North and South nodes (direction in which each soul evolves). Also since being a teenager she developed an interest in ancient rituals, the way different cultures hold sacred space, tell and pass on stories and how they express this through music and dance.
In Flamenco she finds a tight, undocumented knot of fascinating cultural references including Andaluz, Gypsy, Arabic, Jewish, African, Celtic and even Asian influences.
For quite a secretive, hidden away art form it truly does carry cultural threads that stretch out to many corners of the world. People from all corners of the world comment on how they can really ´feel´ and connect to the emotion of Flamenco. Through flamenco dance she takes us on a journey...
We are looking forward to journeying with you!
