Break free from limitations of the past!

Unbridle yourself from restricting have to(s) and should(s) and listen as your heart guides you to wildly abandon all that does not bring you alive.

Step into a bright new future with Sandra and Sandra during 9 days of re-imagining, transforming and sacred ceremony as you travel through the Jordanian desert and emerge anew from the waters of the Dead Sea.

  • feeling called to explore the spiritual treasures of an ancient land?
  • excited to step beyond the status quo and do something you’ll remember for a lifetime?
