Alchemise : Yoga & sound healing retreats

All my retreats are for students who attend my classes regularly. If you don’t currently attend my classes/workshops and would like to attend a retreat with me we can have a chat about how to make that possible.

I keep my retreats to those who are currently students as it’s a way of making sure most people are on the same page (or at least in the same book!). I teach a deep and spiritual practice so I mitigate having unknown people booking on so that the retreat energy can be contained and is therefore more beneficial for those who attend.

If you are interested in attending a retreat, I would suggest coming to classes so that you can make sure the energy is aligned for you.

A Winter Solstice Ritual Retreat

13th – 16th December 2024

Glastonbury, UK

Join Charlie for a very special women’s winter solstice retreat weekend held within the grounds of the Chalice Well Gardens.

Glastonbury is the heart chakra of the UK, and the Chalice Well waters are world renowned for their healing properties. The retreat occurs over the full moon in Gemini on 15th December, so a wonderful time to witness the lunar light illuminating the land.

Located at the base of the tor, which can be seen at various spots within the gardens, you will have 24-hour access to the gardens and the red spring water to drink and bathe in. You also have the opportunity to visit the special white well, walk the tor and visit the abbey grounds with Charlie as your exclusive tour guide in this immersive Avalon experience.

“The retreat exceeded my expectations, Charlie has been amazing (as always), her knowledge and energy is very special, she always gives 110% (or more).

Glastonbury is such a special place, the venue was very nice and its location was perfect as it was close to the town centre and also close to the Tor and to the springs. The company was very lovely, we got along and connected very well with each other that of course added to such a special experience. The size of the group was also very good, not too small and not too big. I also loved the surprise Cacao ceremony and Siriarti and Charlie made it very special and magical.

I’m immensely grateful for this truly exceptional and uplifting experience! Thank you! <3"

Gongland’s 36″ Dark Water Gong taps into the profundity of its healing powers. It makes water come alive energetically. This gong helps your stress leave, brings you more into the flow.

Searching for the original meaning of the word “baptism” in which water is used to purify, one finds it is most linked in the ancient languages to “immersion.” Interesting that many gong players call their healing work, “Sound Immersions.” From the unfathomable depth to the rushing waterfall with this gong and your healings can spiritually cleanse on many levels From the unfathomable depth to the rushing waterfall.

Water is mutable element it appears in so many forms on our planet. Therefore each of these gongs is unique.

(From Gongland master and maker Rolf Nitsch)

28” JUPITER F2#/Fis-91,79 Hz
Based on planetary calculation
3rd Octave F3#/fis-183,58 Hz
4th Octave A4/a’-436,62 Hz

Abundance and blessings exploration and expansion opportunity and luck confidence and wisdom this is the light side of Jupiter, but as with everything, there is a shadow too.

Jupiter can mean too much, excess, greed, inflated, a sense of entitlement, taking advantage of others, pushing our luck, sense of invincibility.

Jupiter is often the eternal student, often too the philosopher; flamboyant and a bit of a diva. Charismatic philanthropist. A desire for recognition. Good reputation. Symbolises lucky breaks. Embodies the power of positive thoughts.

Mysticism & spiritualism magic & ritual daydreaming & fantasy imagination & intuition connection to ethereal world

Chaos can arise. Can cause Confusion and mental vagueness due to the essence of this planet is illusion, susceptible to substance use such as alcohol and drugs. Hallucinations and building castles in the air if not rooted. Likewise causing untruthful and fraudulent interactions, both spiritual and material world.

Excitement and enjoyment relationship and romance good taste and appreciation of the arts love, beauty and money.

She isn’t always practical and shows us our ideal love and beauty. Venus wants us to enjoy excitement and romance – but doesn’t always distinguish between what we need and what we desire, often not practically workable in real life.

Venus loves to be adored and likes to be centre of attention it may push us to pursue pleasures that are not sustainable.

24” MOON SID. A2#/Ais-113,71 Hz
Based on planetary calculation
3rd Octave A3#/ais-227,43 Hz
4th Octave A4/a’-429,33 hz

The energy of the moon deals with emotions, feelings, and intuition. This gong can help to loosen and release emotions that you’re holding onto which are not your own. It aids in clearing energetic blocks preventing you from living in harmony. Many people experience a balancing of their inner male and female energies.

In astronomy, the synodic cycle of the moon (the lunar month) is the period of time between one new moon and the next.

The Synodic Moon Gong is tuned at G#2 (210.42 Hz). To find this frequency, mathematician Hans Cousto doubled the periodic frequency of the moon’s synodic, orbital cycle multiple times until the frequency reached the audible range.Through this process, he refined his theory of the law of the Cosmic Octave. He calculated the audible octave frequencies of all of the planetary bodies in our solar system, allowing us to work with the energies of the planets in sound therapy.
