A Virtual Healing Weekend Retreat

A Virtual Healing Weekend Retreat

Anne Biging and Elisabeth Ixmeier, Co-Founders of Healing Hotels of the World, have partnered with six internationally recognized healing and body work leaders to bring a two-day virtual retreat to a North and South American audience.

The retreat – which will take place on Saturday, June 27 and Sunday, June 28, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time – is limited to 15 people in order to facilitate an intimate group setting. Participants should expect profound awakening for their entire being, with master teachers and healers using their skills to help them gain new insights and self-awareness, and experience a deep connection to their true selves. 

“This retreat will transform your surroundings into a digital temple for two days,” says Anne Biging, Co-Founder of Healing Hotels of the World. “You will find a place of peace and contentment within yourself, and our expert healers will help you experience a refreshed state of mind, with renewed joy in each cell of your being.”

The group of six healers has worked with the Healing Hotels team over the years, and their sessions will comprise different techniques, exercises, meditations and even cooking sessions and mindful eating lessons. The healers include a vibrational therapist, energy alchemist, life coach, yogi, meditation teacher, and movement therapist who integrates teachings from the Gyrokinesis® Method. 

This is the second virtual retreat that Healing Hotels of the World has offered since the COVID-19 pandemic began; the first one, held in May, attracted 14 participants from 10 different countries: Senegal, Kosovo, India, Italy, Russia, Singapore, Japan, Germany, China and France. 

Feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive:

“I shared two days with people full of positive energy,” says Fedra Mainetti. “The meditations on intentions and the work done on how to defeat fears, transforming them into energy of hope, is still so present in my heart and mind.”

“I cannot think of any virtual experience that has brought such honesty, soul-searching, wonder, learnings and love than the inaugural Healing Hotels retreat has done,” says Corinna Yap. “A truly healing experience at the time when we need it the most.”
