A spiritual experience in a cool kind of place

Led by transpersonal therapist and veteran yoga instructor Diana Bourel , the Foundations Renewal Retreat is a multidisciplinary 7-night, 8- day yoga retreat at Jake’s that combines yoga lineages, healing traditions, teaching styles and modalities. Its intention is to lay the groundwork for the creative and powerful foundation upon which participants can build a spiritual practice that maximizes physical, emotional, mental and spiritual capacities. A special experience deserves a special venue, and that is why InStyle Vacations chose Jakes Hotel in Jamaica. Nestled in the quiet fishing community of Treasure Beach on Jamaica’s South Coast, Jakes has distinguished itself as a venue for Yoga and Wellness Retreats. With its deep spiritual roots, its Ital community and a long history of simple values, clean foods, environmental awareness and commitment to the expression of the soul through music, the island of Jamaica is the perfect location for the process of physical and spiritual renewal. Its core values meld beautifully with the yogic and esoteric traditions that will be presented by Diana .

Near both the USA and Canada, Jamaica is an easy flight away and will become a refuge and haven for many.

Art of Self Care

The art of the healer is this: to help identify what needs healing, what is broken, what hurts, what is ready for breakthrough and to find exactly the right medicine, internal setting and pulse for the mending to occur.

In the multi-layered world of transformation, there is no blanket formula that will work for every individual. That is why there are different paths, and I have walked many of them and found that eventually, all the spiritual portals lead to a sacred core. I celebrate this diversity.

My passion lies in accompanying people through the vital, scary, chaotic and raucously beautiful world of transformation. I help bring words and understanding to that process, connecting the seemingly parenthetical and ephemeral experiences of spiritual understanding to everyday applications for more fulfilling lives...
