After weeks of searching for a unique global travel and yoga experience, I decided to take a chance on Suncokret. It remains one of my best travel experiences to date. Retreats take on many forms and this one is truly unique. A week at Suncokret is a week of intimacy, time, space, beauty, reflection, yoga, outdoor dining, local sightseeing, and personal development.
If you're looking for a mega-conference retreat, then this is not the retreat for you. This retreat is organic in design and puts the responsibility on you to discover what it is you are seeking. Having said that, the care and attention provided by Evening and Stipe over the course of the week are more than enough to enable you to have a really great experience.
You will stay in a lovely and simple stone cottage. Most meals are prepared there by Stipe and you will enjoy delicious, healthy food while eating outdoors. Evening will consult with you at the beginning of the week and allow you to choose whatever modalities you would like to explore with her over the course of the week. In my case, I chose a rune reading, chakra balancing session, and energetic healing. Additionally, Evening will lead a full 90-120 minute yoga class each day, some at the cottage, and some in beautiful outdoor settings by the sea. Most days include a brief sightseeing tour with tour guidance by Evening and/or Stipe. Most afternoons are left free for guests to explore on their own. Two or three times, you might visit a local cafe or ice cream shop together. How perfect is that! I spent many days swimming in the sensuous Adriatic sea, riding a motor scooter around the island, visiting beautiful villages, and enjoying delightful cafes. And always, we came together at dinner to discuss the day and whatever was going on in our hearts. This attention and space is the gift that Evening and Stipe so beautifully bring to their guests.
I still talk about this trip and hope good fortune will allow me to make a return visit in the next year or two.
