Why Slovenia? Why Štanjel?

Slovenia is an enchanting, magnificently beautiful forested country. It is the only country in the world with the word “Love” in it. At the core of humanity, we all want the same thing. We want to love, and be loved…. The journey to love starts within. It is an inside job. In this heart-filled country, you have the opportunity to discover the power of love’s transformation. 

Once an ancient Roman fort, the village of Štanjel stands proudly atop a hill, its geographic location making it an important settlement in this area since the iron age. It was named after the patron saint of the church, Saint Daniel. The story of Daniel refusing to compromise his values and beliefs in praying to the King instead of his God, and being thrown into the lion’s den and surviving, reminds us to have the courage to know who you are and to stand in your truth, the faith and trust in intuitive dreams and to align with our interconnection with nature

Due to its strategic location, the hill was already populated in prehistoric times and was fortified in antiquity. The first written mention of the area dates back to 1402. The characteristic defensive wall from the 15th century protected the inhabitants during the Turkish invasions. The settlement reached the peak of its development in the 16th and 17th centuries, as most of the architectural features of the buildings originate from this period. Between the two world wars, the architect and then mayor of Štanjel Max Fabiani left his mark here. During World War II, the settlement was partly destroyed by fire and the castle was heavily damaged. The revitalization of the village centre started in the 1960s and has continued to this day. After World War II, a new part of the settlement developed on a plane below the old village centre.

The story of a place, its people, the land and its creatures, can inspire us to continue onwards, gaining wisdom from lessons experienced by its ancestors. At its core, rebuilding the places within which were damaged by the past, can through emotional courage and faith renew our spirit to soar into experiencing the vitality and beauty of life all, empowering us to create a new heart-centred, interconnection with nature way of being in our world.

You will have the opportunity to align your resonance with your unique heart song…

Experience wellness and self-nurture with Slovenian hospitality! 

We will start our days with awakening the body with a Hatha Yoga class taught by Maja Pepelnjak. Followed by a nutritious breakfast at the Restaurant at our host venue Hotel St. Daniel, which is located in the village of Štanjel, Slovenia. 

In the afternoons you will experience Slovenian hospitality at its best, whether you enjoy a freshly pressed juice grow from their organic garden, the taste sensation of local, organic seasonal cuisine, journaling amidst the vineyard groves, or a meaningful conversation with one of your new soul-sisters whilst soaking up the peace and tranquillity.   

Remembering the joy of slowing down, you take a few moments to explore the beauty of this old farmhouse, lovingly restored by our hosts, feeling into the frequency of the intention for your wellness on all levels, or listening to the birdsong. Retiring to your comfortable and relaxing room for an evening's recharging rest for the next chapter of our journey in the morning.

Local, seasonal, organic Cuisine. YES, Please!

The essence of St Daniel Hotel’s kitchen is based on organically grown and naturally ripened local foods, which they are constantly adjusting to meet your needs as well as the conditions and crops granted to us by nature during every particular season of the year.

By using organic foods they also emphasize the broader social importance of the slogan "Choose organic. Promote a better world"; they promote recycling, "fair trade" (products and materials that are not the result of modern age slavery and come from reliable sources), they support local manufacturers, do not pollute the environment with unnecessary transport, but most of all, they realize that the environment in which we exist should not be taken for granted and that we should care for the environment just as much as it cares for us.

“Our restaurant does not serve only excellent, healthy and local food from the Karst, but it also serves a story. We firmly believe that a carefully chosen menu, an ecological orientation and a relaxing environment feed not only the body but also mind and soul.”

Vegan and vegetarian options are available upon request!

Are you ready to answer the feminine frequency call?

Dear Heart, 

I believe that the answer is Love, and I know that women hold the sacred keys to restore our world. "The work" of this restoration starts within since as we heal ourselves, we start healing the world around us.... one child, one animal, one family, one organisation, one system, one forest at a time. 

In the aftermath of dismantling from patriarchal conditioning, women are reclaiming their bodies, their voices, their power and their leadership roles en mass. In the wake of this watershed moment in our 'her-story', we are called to actively step unto our sacred purpose paths as women. 

Remember who you are...

Remember you are sacred...

Remember You are sacred purpose...

Remember your deep interconnection with the earth...

The time for us to Rise is Now. 

When women circle, magic happens! 

I look forward to sharing this transformational Feminine Frequency Retreat with you. Can't wait to bare witness to your heart-song with you! 

Love. Truth. Freedom.
