Dancing in the Dark

Re-Treat Yourself 

September 17 - 19, 2021

Join us as we prepare for the new Equinox season Together! 

Experience community around the sacredness of life and its true gift.

Dancing In The Dark is a retreat honoring the balance of darkness and light ― moving past our shadows and embracing our light.


Dancing in the Dark was inspired by Eva's journey into her dark night of the soul and emergence into the light. Come discover how to experience divine light even in the darkest of moments.

Eva, Pascale, and Ghylian will guide you through the nature of what’s created in the beauty of darkness ― from Kemetic yoga, mantra, sacred cacao ceremony, and ecstatic dance in the dark.


Dancing in the Dark is an invitation to dive deep into the body's natural rhythm by detoxing and connecting to nature and your birth-right wellness.

Through this transformative experience, you’ll gain tools to emerge renewed as light.

Experience Revival From the Inside Out

A weekend to immerse yourself and dive deep into your womb space surrounded by the mist of the Caribbean sea, basking in the sun, swaying with the breeze, bathing in the beautiful waters.

Your lungs will breathe fresh air. Pipa water fasting program will use coconut water to alleviate the load from your digestive system while providing enough fuel to sustain your metabolic processes.


You will be connecting to your body-mind-spirit on all levels to come out rejuvenated and renewed.

Immersive Ancient Healing

Retreat content will include the teachings of The People’s Practice which is an integration of Kemetic and Hatha with Tao healing arts.  These ancient methods employ breath, sound, and movement to still the mind and liberate the body, based on the foundations of four-part breath, geometric progression, and the remembrance of your indigenous nature within. 


The People’s Practice develops attention to individual needs while encouraging the support of a holistic community.

Mantra, Kriya, Yoga Nidra, and dance in ecstasy serve as a toolbox to deep cleanse your programming ― mantra chanting to attune to your highest universal frequency, kriya to deeply cleanse and balance your nerves, and yoga nidra to reset new neural pathways.

Ghylian smiling in front of green nature background


For over 25 years Ghylian Bell created new programs that are truly the emotional, psychological and spiritual amalgamation of all she had gathered energetically on her path of life. Her introduction to the practices of mediation and  yoga at age 19, came through the noted Jamaican singer/songwriter Bunny Wailer of the groundbreaking The Wailers featuring Bob Marley. That moment changed her and charged her forward.  She began her walk and her work to build a bridge of spiritual practices in all her endeavors. 


Ghylian has and still develops curriculum, training and retreats. Ghylian has organized and taught retreats throughout the world in Senegal, Bali, Cuba and Costa Rica.
