A Soulful Retreat in Sri Lanka with Tiffany Carole EAMP, LAc
December 7th - 14th, 2018 These 8 days will change your life
Fire and Water
The Sun and the Moon Conscious awareness and Emptiness Everywhere and nowhere Birthed and yet unborn Love and Power Present time and no-time The Mental and the Emotional Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine
Come to Sri Lanka, land that overflows with gems, land that is surrounded by warm seas. Tend your Heart-Fire, warm your bones, reignite your Passion and Purpose, anchor your Soul.
The Fire and Water elements, from the perspective of East Asian cosmology and medicine, form a functional and dynamic polarity that can be called your “Authentic Nature”: You as emergent awareness forever delighting in the joy of being alive and the bliss of inter-relatedness. And you as potential, as seed of destiny, as the unborn implicit Knower of the unknown.
The Fire and Water axis form your pure light of consciousness unfettered by trauma, and your divine destiny unscathed by worldly constraints.
This axis, this dimension of your own Self, is always who you are. This is the the you, you experience in states of flow and un-self-conscious expression. The totally connected you. You leading from Heart and Soul. You being YOU!
Shock, betrayal, being harmed against your will, violations and abuse, abandonment, and neglect, whether in your life or in the lives of your ancestors, all compromise your memory of and ability to hone into the frequency and truth of your Authentic Nature. Even though it is always who you are, it may be challenging to live life from the spaciousness and freedom of your enlivened Soul.
But we have Medicine for this: The Medicine of Fire and Water
It's time to illuminate, with Heart and Soul, your Fire and Water
Reconnect ~Respectfully Restore ~ Reignite Return to Flow
In the journey of Fire you receive the Medicine bundle of Presence; awakened Spirit, true Joy, centered Bliss, Spontaneity, Innocence, and Heart... Your Heart.
You awaken from slumber, you are liberated from boredom and ambivalence and you are freed from control and chronic tension. You experience deeper, vibrant intimacy with self and others. You learn, re-learn to play, to really play and have a truly splendid time without enslavement by addictions.
You discover how to ‘use’ and transmit your Fire Medicine bundle to others; your clients, your family members and your community.
In the journey of Water you receive the Medicine bundle of True Power; creation of new Legacy, Wisdom and the Knowing in your bones that no-one and nothing can ever take away.
You relax in relationship to control, you find (re-member) your own deep flow and rhythm, you release shackles of unproductive fear and anxiety, and you find deep steadiness in emptiness.
You discover how to ‘use’ and transmit your Water Medicine bundle to others; your clients, your family members, your community.
In the video below I share about the retreat, the land of Sri Lanka and the unique blessings of Fire & Water retreat If you feel a stirring, a curiosity, a pull to go... please watch
The Fire and Water Medicine give rise to Presence and True Power, which together clarify and strengthen our ability to create new legacy individually and collectively. This is how we co-create a new world, one that we sense in our Hearts is possible. These Medicines give us back the golden key to our Heart and the ability to see, feel, hear and feed our Soul. We need this now. We need authenticity, we need safety, we need both healing and recognition of being healed
This is the Medicine of Fire and Water together
Come, receive, awaken, dissolve and let go. Play and play and play. Find curiously and spontaneity. Deepen wisdom and faith
Below are a few short videos from past participants sharing experience, what a retreat day is like, what Sri Lanka is like and who this is best suited for.

About the Land and Monara Retreat House
Sri Lanka is the home of the most magnificent spice essential oils. And part of this retreat is devoted to visiting the lands from which they come, and seeing these plants within their natural habitat.
Sri Lanka is also home to unbelievably delicious and Earth element healing foods and dishes. You will have the opportunity to take cooking classes with our retreat chef.
Many of the teachings around Fire make reference to our passion, our Soul Center, and what makes us feel safe and also alive. Monara Retreat house is a sweet and loving "Home" filled with aromas from Indra's cooking, and Chandrae's delightful laughter (the garden man and supplier of our incredible coconuts). It's a stunning and beautiful retreat place to hold, nourish and ignite us, located about 1 ½ to 2 hours south of Colombo (main city with airport). The nearest city is Bentota, although Monara is tucked up on a hill at the edge of a small village. It's on a nature reserve and wetlands. You will wake up to divine bird song every morning. Monara House is 5 kilometers from the beach and ideally located for day excursions.
Rooms are either single (private) with fans, or shared accommodations with AC. There will be up to 9 retreat guests allowing for deeper exploration and healing on all levels. You will enjoy a gorgeous infinity pool for playing and soaking, gardens for relaxing in (I'm sure Chandrae can't wait to show you around 'his' garden!), and outdoor areas for movement or chanting/singing. The village is a 5 to 10 minute walk and we'll go there on 'Farmers Market' day. The locals are some of the kindest folk I have ever known.
The food is… well, beyond magnificent; the fragrances and flavors literally heal the body and mind. You will be surrounding by the elements, the lush green, the beautiful water within the pool and canal, the moist and rich earth, and the warm breezes that make their way through the trees.
We have an exceptional Ayurvedic practitioner who comes on site with us and offers all sorts of traditional healing treatments at incredible rates (sessions range from $5.00 - $35.00). The traditional head and foot massage with medicinal oils is absolutely divine!
December is the ideal time in Sri Lanka. The temperature is very pleasant: 70’s at night, and 70's - 80’s during the day with cleansing rains that may come and go. Humidity is high, which may take some getting used to. The food and spice helps you acclimate and your skin will love it!
The Fire & Water uniquely radiant retreat offers a powerful medicine and antidote for so much that we suffer with at this time. And it’s not just about the experience while you are there. This is about ‘remembering’ and creating fundamental energetic changes in your tissues and cells so that you can transmit the Medicine of ALL Elements upon your return home.
If you are ready to transform your relationship to all Elements, myself and Sri Lanka welcome you with open arms, essential oils, wisdom, embodied movement, play and a healing passageway to do so. Beauty, stability and clarity await us as we allow the heavy undercurrents of stuck energy to evaporate off.
An incredible value for all that you will receive and participate in.
*Flights and shuttle to retreat not included. Ayurvedic healing treatments not included but offered by appointment at greatly discounted prices for our guests.
Sri Lanka Travel Information
You will be flying into Colombo International Airport also known as Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB). There are many airlines that fly into this location including Sri Lankan Airlines, Emirates, Qatar, and Etihad Airlines. We suggest starting with an Expedia (or similar site) search. This will provide a list of possible airlines and cost range. The general cost from both East and West coasts to Sri Lanka ranges from $900.00 on up, round trip. Once you have chosen your airline you can then continue booking on third party site or directly with the airline. I have found that booking through the airline site provides more clarity and options (meal types, seats, etc).
Remember that a full day will be added on the way there due to cross of date line. In addition, travel times can range from 18 to 30 hours (depending on layovers).
We strongly suggest arriving one day before the start of the retreat. There are hotels near the airport that are absolutely lovely. You will be in good hands. So plan to fly in, arriving on the 6th or early morning of the 7th. You can spend one night at the suggested hotel below and then a shuttle can pick up a group of you to take you down to Monara House on December 7th. We have a suggested shuttle service (see below). They are aware of our retreat and we can work together with you to arrange the pick up (you are responsible for cost of shuttle which will be $25.00 - $40.00).
You may choose to stay in Sri Lanka after the retreat is over (or come a few days before hand to explore). We recommend it! Sri Lanka is an absolutely incredible country. I have no doubt you will fall in love. The food is... yummmm... you will see just how delicious and nourishing, the people are the most kind and hospitable that I have ever experienced.
I have contacts that can help you should you like to plan excursions; simply let me know and I'll connect you. There are a few other suggestions for people who can help with planning travel below. It is also fairly easy to plan your own excursions. We suggest getting a car a driver. It is very affordable and allows for a more relaxing time. :)
Arrival Hotel: Green Olive Villa. Please tell them (or write when booking online) that you are with Tiffany’s retreat. Rates are $30.00 - $65.00 USD per night and this includes FREE airport pick-up and drop off even if you get in the middle of the night!
Plan to bring covered shoes for walking, layered clothing for night time, sunscreen, bathing suit, bug spray, a rain jacket, comfortable loose clothing for movement sessions, a journal and pen, camera, a photocopy of your passport to keep separately. I will send all registrants a complete and very helpful written and audio guide to support you through the planning, packing and traveling process.
Mosquitos that carry disease are prevalent all over the world. Some mosquitoes in Sri Lanka carry dengue fever, which can be easily prevented. As a foreign traveler it’s important to take precautions. Please bring bug spray or essential oils to prevent mosquito bites. If you choose to use a spray with “deet” please be respectful of others who are sensitive to chemicals and only use outside away from housing areas. We will also be making our effective bug spray together.
The dengue fever area is concentrated around Colombo and a couple other large cites. We have had no problem with dengue in our area, and in fact the mosquitos are less at Monara House than many other ares of the country.
Most Sri Lankans speak english and are very eager to help Americans. It is quite easy to communicate and get around there.
Refund Policy: There are no refunds after September 30th, 2018 unless there is a documented medical emergency. Up until that date full refund less $100.00 is given
Tiffany Carole is a teacher and a Medicine woman. Her purpose is to digest and transmit the fundamental essence and language of energetic medicine; and to illuminate the emergent ‘building blocks of the Universe’ so that we may step into our roles as conscious co-creators.
She has trail blazed the consciousness explorers way ‘in and down’ while simultaneously moving ‘up and out’ both in time, no-time, space and non-space. Her gift is to not only bridge worlds, but also to make this process transparent and illuminated so that others may do the same.
Tiffany is a “teacher of teachers” taking under her wings the gifted, sensitive leaders of today and with whole heart in service, incubating their gestations and births of brilliance. She busts out of old and constricting paradigms without disrespecting our ancestral past. And she does this for the sake of all souls, that they may sprout, grow, flower and bloom into the divine blueprint of their seed. That we may all become our most natural, unencumbered selves.
Tiffany has an uncanny way of of honoring both the western and eastern philosophical mind and perceptions in such a way that allows transcendence of opposites while not denying the reality of polarity in the third dimension. She studied biochemistry at Schreiner University, and Naturopathic and Chinese Medicine at Bastyr University.
Tiffany is a published author of Chinese and Energetic Medicine articles, adjunct faculty at Bastyr University, and has been practicing the art and science of energetic medicine professionally for over 15 years at her clinic outside Seattle W.A, Synergy Wellness Center. Additionally Peter Holmes and Tiffany co-created a potent system of pairing key essential oils with acupoints, facilitating extraordinary shifts in body-mind-soul. This is called Aroma Acupoint Therapy. Currently they facilitate these trainings all over the United States as well as train other practitioners to teach this modality.
Tiffany facilitates Master Healer groups on both the west and east coasts, assisting healers of all varieties to step fully and magnificently into their super and subtle powers and brilliance.
