A TALE TO TELL
If you're a Fleetwood Mac fan, this retreat will feel like Dreams, Go Your Own Way and Landslide all in one well-being journey. We can’t wait for our upcoming ‘greatest hits’ retreat, which will encompass all our favourite practices, workshops and rituals.
Aimed to sate both elemental and spiritual needs, we have curated an experience which will appeal to all your senses while stimulating your body through movement, nourishment, and the joyful rush of summer. Our upbeat practices open space for positive emotions to arise, enhancing creativity and renewing our optimism.
In addition to our three philosophy pillars, movement, slowness and adventure, journaling will be an optional tool to strengthen that creativity and renewed optimism. Joining together in open-minded exchange, we will explore the stories which weave their way through the fabric of our experience, creating a safe and empowering sisterhood along the way.
You’ll be joining us at the height of summer, but rest assured our location provides plenty of opportunity for relaxing in the monastery’s serene outdoor spaces, or for lengthy dips in the infinity pool. The energy gained from the midsummer sun will translate into our practices, filling these sensual days with a warm and steady glow that’s guaranteed to linger.
To get in the she she summer mood, we've created a SUMMER TALES playlist for you to listen to. Like what you hear? Then this will be the perfect getaway for you!
MOVEMENT AND MIND
The movement and mind programme for SUMMER TALES is created and led by our local French-Mallorcan teacher, Birjiwan and Australia born, Berlin based Steph Cusack. Expect to be guided through an array of beautiful rituals and soundscapes, Kundalini, Yin and Yoga Nidra. Birjiwan and Steph together are quite the magical duo, and the sacred grounds and high ceilings of the monastery make these experiences unforgettable.
We believe in the connection between nature, body and consciousness. Through the different modalities their teachings are based on, they encourages you to step into self-knowledge and confidence, bonding with physical wisdom and innate creativity. And remember, 'you are the expert of you'.
Their warm and sincere guidance is the perfect framework for you to embark on a journey towards wholeness and a deeper sense of self-awareness. There is no right or wrong and none of the sessions require previous experience in Kundalini or Yin yoga.
A SAFE AND FREE SPACE
Albertine interweaves the movement and mind practices with a down to earth approach that offers a contemporary well-being experience for the modern woman. With a background as a creative and broad experience in hospitality, Albertine combined her wanderlust spirit with her love of bringing people together in raw, beautiful spaces and created she she in 2016. What began as a passion project has unfolded into a journey of more than 40 retreats and counting...
she she reflects Albertine's eye for detail and her holistic approach to what the perfect getaway should encapsulate. Every look, smell, sound, feel and taste is carefully tended to, culminating in a transformative experience, removed from the rush of daily routine.
As always, our approach is fluid and without rules. We create an open-minded place to feel safe, where you can really let your hair down and indulge in a magical retreat experience alongside like-minded women.
In short, feeling and moving freely and enjoying the things that really matter in life.
Exchange the screen of your phone for a notebook and while we will support you with prompts and guidance, your journal is your own. Whether pages are filled with many or few words, little sketches, pressed wildflowers, or act as a sounding board for your thoughts - this is your summer tale.

Our enchanting retreat house is a 13th Century Monastery set high in the hills of the UNESCO World Heritage Tramuntana range of Mallorca.
This unique family owned home is located near the artistic village of Deià where one can really feel the creative soul of the island. This area has been an inspiration to many painters, poets and musicians.
The property enjoys breathtaking views of the Mediterranean sea, while surrounded by millennial olive groves. Spend some time alone in a quiet nook or hang out with the group in the communal spaces like the cosy living room or the outdoor lounge with its infinity pool.
Wander through sweet-scented citrus trees, breathe in the fresh mountain air and watch the sun dip below the ocean's horizon.
Note that this is an old rural home and not a hotel resort, and that is exactly why we love it! We promise the moment you set foot on these sacred grounds, it will steal your heart...

ARRIVAL, DEPARTURE AND TRAVEL

The nearest airport is Palma (PMI) which can be easily reached from most principal European cities. The house is located near Deià but as the last road leads into the hills, we recommend travelling by car or taxi. You can rent a small car or share a taxi with others to get here. A few weeks prior to the retreat, we will connect everyone so that cars or taxis can be shared. From the airport, a taxi ride is ca. 40 minutes and costs ca. 55 EUR. A shared taxi with 3 persons is about 15-20 EUR per person.
Another option is to travel by bus. The bus from Palma city to Port de Sollèr stops fairly close, just note you have to walk up the road for ca. 20 minutes from the bus stop. The stop is called Son Gallard and a bus ticket costs ca. 5-10 EUR.
