About the Event

As we move further into the depths of this monumental transition for humanity, we need more and more of us to anchor light into society through how we live our lives.   To make space for this light we need to embrace parts of ourselves we hide in the shadows.  When we bring these aspects into our conscious awareness we realise they are not as scary as we thought, akin to the monsters under the bed that turn out to be a ball of socks!  By embracing and loving all that we are, we are able to do that for the world.

Gathering just before the seminal solstice and moving into the age of Aquarius, we will be approaching our wounding through love, bringing wholeness and space for more light in our bodies, minds and souls.

We invite you to join Helen Millar ( and Ariane Lugan ( for an opportunity to see what 2020 had brought to the surface with compassion, and transmute it with love.  Their work is heart centred and nourishing, creating community and holding safe space for deep realisations and healing to occur. 

Cacao Ceremony:

Helen will take you on a healing cacao ceremony, allowing you to make the most of this beneficial opportunity to clear away the perception of chaos and uncertainty. When we reconnect to trusting ourselves and in the universe our innate joy flows forth, we own our power without fear and then our lives, and the world rises up with us.  We inherently know there is another way of being in this world, with this extraordinary time of rebirth on the planet, we can find out what that feels like. Let's not waste the opportunity to live the freest, brightest and bravest lives we choose.  Weaving together astrology, journaling, tarot, intuitive wisdom, Buddhist philosophy, channeled meditation and sharing circles, Helen holds safe sacred space for you to learn to heal yourself, and feel the difference of moving from head to heart centered living. 

Breathwork Ceremony:

After a short break Ariane will lead you into a powerful breathwork ceremony that will not only strengthen your respiratory system, but also keep expanding your heart and  connection with your inner resources, whilst helping the release of unwanted heavy energies.  Leaving you with more peace, serenity, harmony and clarity.

Having successfully collaborated in the past, Ariane and Helen reunite; excited about the change that is possible when they combine their healing areas of expertise: bringing you into alignment and connected to the true power of your heart.

Why come?

We are forging a new humanity right now, and we are so pleased you are feeling called to be one of the change makers and taking responsibility for your healing.  We are moving into a new era where each of us is being required to take responsibility for our actions and truly discern what is the best course for society and our lives.  When we gather to heal and set intentions we are able to opporate from our highest perspective, making decisions with clarity and confidence.  None of this need feel arduous or overwhelming, when we remember that we are spiritual beings having a human experience life becomes much more enjoyable.

"I felt very peaceful afterwards for the next 2 days, more calm and at peace. Ariane has a wonderful energy, is very gentle and made me feel very safe. I can only recommend working with her."

Nadine - Online session

"I have been to hundreds of ceremonies over the last 30 years of running a retreat centre.  Helen's cacao ceremony in Ibiza really was one of the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremonies I have ever been a part of.  I had profound realizations, felt a deep connection to my family and that was because of her heart, her knowledge, her light and the beautiful and safe space she created!"  - Kezia Kaur, Therapist, Healer, Life Coach, Founder & CEO Ashiana Retreats
