Re-ignite your inner spark, vitality, and ‘Joie de Vivre at the heart of your being.
Every year we organize in-person small group retreats of a max of 6 women, in our Inner Sparkle Sanctuary, Jardin de Luz in Andalucia, Spain. Situated amidst peaceful olive and citrus groves. It is embedded in the earthy, powerful energy of the Alpujarra Mountains, in the province of Granada in Spain. We are within walking distance of the lively, friendly mountain village of Lanjarón and close to the bohemian village of Orgiva.
The Alpujarra way of life is simple, honest, pure, and closely intertwined with the calm rhythms of nature. The Alpujarra nature is known for its pure air, pristine spring water, an abundance of colorful healing herbs, rich wildlife, and enchanting walks in the mountains, where we breathe in the ancient culture of the Moors, walking along centuries-old irrigation channels and medieval donkey trails.
Our Finca offers a friendly, caring family atmosphere where you can be truly you. It is the perfect setup for coming back to self and to rest, digest, and recharge. Our large outdoor dance space with a wooden floor, facing the ancient pine forest and high mountain peaks of The Sierra Nevada, offers an intimate setting for a deep dive into self-discovery and healing immersions, allowing your inner world to be felt and expressed.
There are many beautiful places to retreat to alone in our wild orchard. Our shaded outdoor dining area provides a welcoming space for connection, meaningful conversation, and fun.
The nearest beaches are a 30-minute drive away. The nearest airport is Malaga Airport, a 90-minute drive from Jardin de Luz
Each of our small-group retreats covers themes that many of us are experiencing emotionally, mentally, and/or physically, varying from reclaiming your playfulness, spontaneity, and joy to sparking your energy, and vitality, and attend to yourself in a holistic way etc…

I have known Pingel & Peter for a long time now and have seen them grow as teachers and as persons. I found the retreat I did to be a huge success. Although it was a small group with big differences, they were able to tune in to the different needs. In which they made good use of each other’s strengths and vulnerabilities. I experienced it as a special, safe and inspiring week. Pingel and Peter do not teach you what to do, but challenge you to discover your life path in your own way.
Ich habe am Retreat “The Sound of you” mit Pingel und Peter teilgenommen. Leider waren wir nur eine Minigruppe aber dafür war es umso intensiver.
Ich kann dieses Retreat nur empfehlen, es hatte soviel Tiefgang. Die Beiden sind zutiefst einfühlsam und voller Liebe. Im Tanz und in Bewegungen haben sich altbekannte Muster gezeigt, wurden liebevoll angeschaut und durften sich verändern. Die Treffen waren super vorbereitet und dennoch total an den Moment angepasst. Es war eine willlkommene Herausforderung und wurde sehr genossen.
Thank you, so much. It was such a blessing to be able to transform through dance and be held in a safe, sacred, beautiful outdoor space. I’m amazed at the tenacity of your body wisdom and that rare gift you have of guiding while supporting freedom and intuitive movement. There was such a depth and complexity to your work and yet it was so simple and easy to engage, to flow, to dance, to move, to transform, and to just be. Thank you. I had profound realizations and moments of such clarity on deep core issues. It’s wonderful knowing I embodied those transformations. I feel completely different now.
Thanks, Pingel, for the welcoming atmosphere you create. With your gentle presence, you succeed in welcoming ‘all there is , and give it the time, space, and freedom to let all be and flow. Thanks, Peter, for the welcoming atmosphere you create. The love and beauty you add to the food and the place make the experience more flavored colorful.
