Al Wathba Luxury Collections and Spa, Abu Dhabi

The Spiritual Warrior Retreat

A unique combination of horses, martial arts, qigong and mind - body work to ground yourself, return to your center and leave this place with new strength and energy.

Monica Kubik, certified practitioner in Horse Guided Empowerment partners with Sensei Cathy Darnell, an energy healer and also the leader of the Zanshinkan Aikido Club Dubai.

During the 2 nights / 3 day retreat you will become aware of your body language with all the subtle signs and messages you often send out unconsciously, and learn how to use your body and energy wisely.

You will learn new techniques of relaxation and centering, and how to harness the power of your mind to win the war over yourself.

To become a spiritual warrior, you need to leave your own comfort zone for growth and learning - all whilst being guided by our facilitators and supported by a group of likeminded retreat participants.

What to expect during the retreat:

  • 4 group sessions of horse guided coaching and learning. No riding, and no prior horse experience required
  • 2 group sessions in Mind / Body work
  • Group meditation
  • Stillness and relaxation in a calm, luxurious desert environment
