Art in Counselling

Awaken you inner perception. KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat art in counselling uses crayons, paint, collage and clay to access and express inner experiences. Drawing, painting, collaging and sculpting can be a way to find intuitive answers to unresolved questions. The body-focused approach can provide nurturing, structure and inspiration in times of stress, burnout and disease, heal old wounds, transform emotional turbulence and show the way towards a more authentic and meaningful way of life. Explore and regenerate your creative side. No special artistic talent is required and it is suitable for all ages.


Guided Meditation

In our frantic modern world, guided meditation at KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat has become one of the most popular ways for people to relax, de-stress, accelerate their spiritual development and enhance their quality of life. At KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat we believe that one’s quality of life depends largely on one’s quality of mind. When you practice meditation, your heart rate and your breathing gradually slow down. Your blood pressure normalizes and the function of your immune system improves. A guided meditation at KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat can also cause your adrenal glands to produce less cortisol, one of the main hormones responsible for ageing. As you learn to meditate, your mind becomes clearer and clearer. You feel less burdened by mental chatter, and troubling emotions gradually melt away. Feelings of stress and anxiety are greatly reduced. The inner calm that a guided meditation session with Kalyaana Spa & Wellness Retreat provides can help you achieve a more positive outlook, increased intelligence and enhanced creativity. Meditation helps to eliminate stress and anxiety, and it helps you to sleep more deeply. The package includes 3 x 60 minute sessions of personal instruction and guided practice including Level 1: Breathing, Level 2: Passive Relaxation and Level 3: Visualisation.


 Sandplay Therapy

Sandplay therapy (often referred to as sand tray therapy) is a holistic approach to counselling and is a process that involves creating scenes in a tray of sand, using realistic miniatures chosen from the therapist’s collection. These miniatures cover all areas of life such as people, plants, animals, houses, transportation, creepy crawlies, crystals etc. The sand may be moistened with water so that it can be molded or shaped into whatever ‘landscape’ the individual wishes to create. At KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat the use of sand and miniatures gives the guest a symbolic way of expressing your feelings and viewing your lives. A sandplay therapy session at KalyaaNa provides a fun, non-threatening approach to the unconscious, and a safe space in which to explore feelings and life situations that may feel overwhelming. Sandplay enables the psyche to find its own bearing, free of the ego’s influence. Using the sandtray at KalyaaNa, guests are able to play out their fantasies, and to externalize the inner world. It is a deep process which shows you the guest what underlies the current situation that you are presenting with. A sandplay therapy session at KalyaaNa allows a movement within you that is profound. It identifies unspoken issues and brings solutions. Sandplay is for everyone. At KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat sandplay is a journey which both the counsellor and the guest walk together. It is an exciting journey not to be missed. For the counsellor it is a privilege to be part of the enfolding of the guest’s psyche and for the guest it is a true revelation of their inner core. It encompasses everything both past present and future. It can sometimes reveal something so buried that the client has forgotten the original event. At KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat sandplay therapy provides:

*A means of self-discovery, healing and integration

*A transformation or redirection of blocked energy

*Access to the childhood world of imagination and play, re-awakening our own creative nature

*A means by which adults, unable to articulate their feelings and experiences, can find expression and integration

*A safe entry into the deeper archetypal, mythic and transpersonal realms of the psyche

*An activation of our natural, self-healing capacity

*An opportunity for a creative non-rational experience, as a balance to society’s overemphasis on the ego’s intellect


Vision Board Workshop

A vision board workshop at KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat is a simple, fun process of letting your imagination run wild, giving you insight into your soul’s dreams and heart’s desires. Using images and words from magazines, personal photos and memorabilia or whatever strikes your fancy, a collage is created that speaks to the things, feelings, people, aspirations and experiences that are important and meaningful to you now. When you tap into your subconscious mind in this playful, stress-free way, it can and will surprise you! A vision board can be approached in many ways, such as a panoramic board that addresses many aspects of your life – relationships, finances, community engagement, work, travel, health or wellness – or explores one specific aspect in more depth. At KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat you can also create a vision board around one event, such as a wedding, anniversary, vacation or major purchase. It can be a particularly powerful tool for couples to do together in envisioning a new home, business venture or any major life change. Business teams can also benefit from the collaborative effort of imagining a new project or direction. Whatever your circumstances, a vision board workshop at KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat presents a delightful opportunity to explore possibilities and come away with new insights and energy for manifesting your now-visible dreams. It is satisfying for guests to create this work of art during their session, and then watch these dreams manifest over a typically short period of time.


Wellness Consultation

The KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat wellness consultation will help you live a more fulfilling life. With the support of a wellness consultant, you can reach your goals and set new ones, gain professional and personal success, and boost your skills in all areas. A KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat wellness consultant is much like an athletic coach, cheering you on, expanding your limits, and bringing out the best in you. But instead of coaching you only in a single sport, a wellness consultant can be an advisor for every aspect of your life. Your wellness consultant is your partner – someone who has already “been there, done that” who can make it easier for you to live the life you’ve always dreamed of. KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat wellness consultants and their clients have a close relationship. Your wellness consultant will believe in you, support you unconditionally, and recognizes that you are a unique and intelligent human being. Much like personal training does for your physique, a wellness consultation gives your mind a special momentum that puts you more in tune with yourself and your goals. A wellness consultation is a natural part of the KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat philosophy. Both the mind and body must be finely tuned for optimum performance. You already know where you stand on the path of life; at KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat we’ll help you reach your desired destination.
