In this juicy interview with Dakota Channel we hear about how the sacred waters of the Azores called Dakota to host her retreat here.
“One of the best ways I love to connect to a place when I first arrive is to find a spring and drink water from the place, because that water… has the energy, the spirit of the place.”
Dakota’s shares with us her powerful daily practice and “anchor-point” of communing with her water altar. You can get a free guided video on how to incorporate and connect with the magic of water at https://dakotachanel.com/free-water-priestess/
We talk about the legend of Atlantis and what traveling here and partaking in ceremony can mean for the healing of the world. “The group of women that’s come together for this is so special and to be with all of them and to do these ceremonies and practices, and offerings, I just know that magic and miracles are going to happen and I can’t wait."
We can’t either!
“When I first started working with water and women... I started to realize this softness and this strength. This deep feminine power that’s not a power over but a power through unity and through connection… and the teachings of the water of love, unconditional love, where she washes us all clean, equally. She is so abundant in her love and grace.”

“Coming off of a year of introspection is going to lead to some profound travel experiences across the board.”
What a pleasure it was interviewing Cyndi Bulka and hearing her many gems of wisdom for us all.
As a yoga teacher, retreat leader and certified coach Cyndi talks about how the pandemic gave her a chance to consider her “legacy” as she reinvented herself (yet again!) at 60. “I knew I had to sit with all the difficult emotions first... I didn’t deny myself that, and I knew that if I gave myself the time to process all that, I’d actually have the energy to decide what I wanted to do next, to have the clarity of the heart and mind to move forward. And that proved to be a good decision," she says.
Cyndi shares with us a powerful exercise in shifting emotion and getting out of anger and fear. Cyndi is launching her Wise Woman Wellness, an on-line holistic weight management program starting Feb.1. You can find out more about Cyndi and about her offerings at: www.zaktihealth.com/ and join her Wise Women Facebook group.
We look forward to receiving Cyndi here to the Azores!
“When you’re aligned with purpose and passion, the Universe just sort of unfolds it for you...I feel like that’s where I am.”
MINUVIDA welcomes several guest teachers and their students each year. We’ve hosted 35 international retreats and had a sold-out 2020 retreat season before the pandemic.
We missed group hikes, conversations and songs by the firepit, our amazing meals together and the knowledge exchange between participants and teachers from all over the world.
As 2020 blurred by we sorely missed our groups, whose retreats were postponed. We missed group hikes, conversations and songs by the firepit, our amazing meals together and the knowledge exchange between participants and teachers from all over the world. We thought, how can we help support this incredible community? So the Highlighting Guest Teacher Community series was born!
We hope you enjoy meeting the leaders who will be hosting upcoming retreats at MINUVIDA and find inspiration for your own practice, journey and maybe future trip here.
