Class overview

Seaside Yoga & Meditation 海边瑜伽+冥想 

The emphasis of Josephine’s classes is good alignment and challenging oneself without losing touch with integrity, humour and spirituality within a safe environment. With over 10+ years of experience teaching Yoga and Meditation at some of the world’s most prestigious health and wellness resorts including Six Senses and Chivasom, she is skilled in working with people of all different ages, shapes, sizes, levels of experience and health conditions. Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or a newbie, as long as you have the intention to learn, these classes hope to deepen your practice.

More about Meditation: the focus is on breath awareness, using various Pranayama (breath work) techniques to balance our entire bodily system. As a result, the mind quiets, emotions become peaceful that sets the tone for meditation. Although props such as cushions, blocks and towels will be used to help make sitting as comfortable as possible, students should be prepared to sit for longer periods of time. Students are also advised to keep an open, positive mindset and expect whatever feelings or emotions that may arise during meditation. Once you managed to maintain a quiet mind and a calm heart, be prepared to enjoy the blissful inner calm within yourself. Anyone who is interested in self-inquiry, exploring inner reflection within themselves, inner peace, or self-healing should give meditation a try.

Shamanic Journey Into Dreamtime 萨满声音疗愈之旅

Shamanic Journey Into Dreamtime is an experiential sound healing ceremony that opens a doorway into altered state of time and space, producing awakened dreaming. John intuitively chooses from a variety of healing instruments which include his personally handcrafted flutes & didgeridoos, Tibetan singing bowls, bells, drums and many other healing tools. With these shamanic instruments guiding us, we tune into the heartbeat
of Pachamama (Mother Earth) as we travel her oceans, deserts, jungles, and skies awakening our primordial essence.

The participant’s soul symphony also becomes awakened by the sonic massage of the didgeridoo as it vibrates over the seven stars within. Sacred sound helps us part the veils of illusion in order to see a higher truth. By changing perception, there is often no need to change our circumstance. Seeing clearly, we embark on the road to unconditional self-love and empowerment.

John Dumas8.jpg这是一场到达你梦境深处的萨满声音疗愈之旅,通过声音疗愈仪式能够开启一个通道进入到另一次元的时间与空间,制造能够使你觉醒的梦境。John 将会根据指引,从各式各样疗愈乐器中选择适合你的乐器,其中一些乐器是他手工制作的笛子&迪吉里杜管,西藏颂钵,多种铃铛、鼓以及很多其他疗愈工具。

Memories & Feedback from previous retreats

“I was planning the trip for my pre-workshop cleansing. The results were beyond my expectation. It was what I needed for my soul growth without me knowing it. It was not easy like most deep cleansing usually is. It stirred up some unknown emotions that needed my attention and with no escape for me but to look deeper and be aware of them. There definitely some serious release and learning in this experience. It was more than I asked for of the “pre” workshop cleansing. I’m very grateful to Jo, Nick and Akiko’s hospitality, teaching, patience, kindness and love. This is again one of the experiences and memory for me to treasure from Jo’s team. Deep friendship, trust and understanding were also built in this workshop with everyone there. Now I am at a different place, still cleansing but some heavy burden has gone. So thank you, thank you, thank you. Love you! I meant every word. Thank you!!!”

Heartland-circle on beach.jpg

“I had an incredible experience on the Shima Healing retreat this past October on Koh Yao Noi island. Amidst a lush and stunning natural setting I was able to take part in a variety of healing classes, like Reiki, Tibetan singing bowls, yoga and Qi Gong. The energy work I did throughout the week took me on a spiritual and emotional journey, which ultimately helped me accept more of myself and my past. I picked up a lot of helpful spiritual tools and untapped some of my psychic ability. It was so satisfying to spend time with other likeminded people and learn from three healers, whose authenticity and wisdom helped guide me on this journey. I left feeling completely rejuvenated and filled with positive energy. It was an unforgettable healing experience that I’d definitely recommend to others who are interested in healing work.”

Jo @ fresh O2

Dear Jo, I absolutely loved the session the other night. It was good to get the inner animal out of the prison and also throw away the mental garbage before sitting down for real meditation. I find such dynamic meditations to be very effective so I will be looking forward to joining these sessions in the future. Many thanks for organizing it!
