In order to live in the high vibrancy of equilibrium, deep joy and self-awareness we need to harmonise body, mind and spirit. The aim of the new spiritual detox offered by top awareness and transformation coach Gabrielle Scharnitzky is to empower you to adjust your own energy system as and when required and become the highest version of your real self. The Energy Healing Retreat combines the cardinal Ayurvedic treatment Panchakarma with shamanic coaching units designed to guide body, mind and spirit in the direction of gratitude and deep joy.

Retreat with international actor and top shamanic coach

Currently in a leading role in the upcoming American action drama Treadstone, actor Gabrielle Scharnitzky is also one of Europe’s top shamanic coaches. With 20 years of experience, the consciousness and transformation coach teaches people to heal themselves and attain harmony in body, mind and spirit. During her ‘Joy – No Matter What’ Shamanic Healing Retreat, you will find her teaching highly empathetic, reflecting a profound dedication, passion, sensitivity and intuition.

At the age of 15, Gabrielle had a serious accident – an event that was to change and shape her life. Her spiritual journey began in the 1990s: she studied acting in New York before gaining admission as a shaman of the Native American Seneca people. She went on to qualify in consciousness training and transformation coaching, Energy Medicine healing, Sedona Method and Tao Hands healing.

The work of the retreat coach has three parts: first, Scharnitzky applies the Native American wisdom to allow her clients’ receptivity to metaphysical realities unfold. After this, she helps and teaches them to recognise and name their mental, spiritual and emotional energetic blocks and to release pressure. During the third and deepest stage, she and her clients use these energetic clusters in the energy field to decipher the soul’s associated messages. These clusters are the gateway to lost portions of the soul that are trapped in old traumas, belief systems, genetic contracts and other lifetimes, thus resulting in patterns of thought and behaviour that are often passed down through generations. A dialogue with the soul results in these lost parts being returned. This brings about a paradigm shift as new ways of thinking create new realms of experience, paving the way towards fulfilling a person’s wishes and true mission in life.

It’s about the journey, not the destination

‘We need to free ourselves from ancient patterns of thought and behaviour that prevent us from awakening to our own resplendence and wisdom. Ending the cosmic game of limitation within ourselves can be achieved faster than we might think. As we begin to bring our true talents and gifts to life, we help ourselves and others achieve a fulfilling life and peace of mind,’ says Scharnitzky. Her Shamanic Energy Healing Retreat places a focus on awakening to the wisdom within and paves the way for self-reflection, mindfulness, inner peace and joy.

During the retreat, Scharnitzky introduces participants to earth medicine and shows you how living in the sacred space of your spirit self’s circle enables the encounter with and experience of the self and your own medicine. The 12 sacred places of the medicine wheel serve as gateways for the extra-sensory experience of deep messages. Unresolved life issues are looked at from a higher dimension and you will receive clear directions for action that will lead to a resolution. As your real life mission becomes apparent so do the things that you need to let go of on a mental, emotional or spiritual level. Scharnitzky attends to each individual as you come to a deep recognition of your issues, providing tools for self-adjustment that are easily applied in everyday life.

The Energy Healing Retreat is holistically reinforced by the Ayurvedic treatment programme of Panchakarma, with 18 treatments included in the package. Panchakarma opens the mind, body, soul and all the senses for shamanic coaching. Letting go of the past, finding steadiness and our centre are at the heart of Panchakarma. In Sanskrit, Panchakarma means ‘five actions’ or ‘five treatments’. These help the body to expel accumulated toxins and to rebalance any disturbance in the Doshas, the vital forces that shape our physical, mental and spiritual characteristics. Panchakarma boosts the immune system, cleanses the body, improves digestive and metabolic functions and helps bring about healthy, restful sleep. It also enhances emotional wellbeing, mental clarity and vitality.

Body, mind and spirit attain harmony – and we sense the oneness of everything. At this stage, a sense of infinite gratitude and joy sets in.’ In four coaching sessions, each lasting 2.5 hours, you’ll learn to encounter your true, inner self and discover the internal compass that will lead you to self-responsibility, self-love and fulfilment.
