a visit to the Willka T’ika Retreat Center

Had a wonderful opportunity today to visit Willka T’ika today, and even got a private tour of the place by its owner, Carol.

Instead of charging in and forcing the land into the desired image of its new owner, it seems as if the story here is one of respecting exisiting energies and formations and working with the land and not against it.  Firstly, the (estimated) 1000 year old tree on the property, the Lukuma tree, has been the sacred center since the project first started some 17 years ago.  The “grieving” stone was also unearthed during construction; instead of removing it by force it was integrated beautifully into the property.

It’s a beautiful and intricate place.  There are atleast 2 large yoga studios, several meditation spots, so many different gardens including 7 themed ones dedicated to the chakras… and so much more.

On a quiet Sunday we had the place to ourselves, to explore and to have some fun too.
