Magnify Your Radiance New Year Retreat | Isle of Wight


In this earth,
in this immaculate field,
we shall not plant any seeds
except for compassion,
except for love.

- rumi

In numerology 2020 is considered to be an angel number and symbolises huge potential. Now - more than ever - is time to stand strong in your personal beliefs and act from a place of love activation, yet to do so requires harmony, balance and peace for mind, body and soul.

The Magnify Your Radiance New Year Retreat is the space to weave dreams with the golden threads to bring your intentions into radiant being.

And there’s no better time to do that than when we tip the balance from one year into the next. Throughout the Magnify Your Radiance retreat you will tap into this energy, whilst weaving the various aspects of the practices shared. These are carefully blended to help you navigate ways in which to use your gifts and talents to breathe life into your dreams for the year ahead.

It’s time to shape this stardust

The Magnify Your Radiance Retreat provides the space and the container for you to honour your desires, and lead from love. It’s a space to come home to your heart. After spending precious time with family and friends over Christmas, there is nothing like gifting yourself some valuable days away to come to a place of softening.

The Magnify Your Radiance Retreat weaves love languages into your life and desires for the year ahead through yoga, meditation, celestial communications, Qoya, dance, ceremony, soulful intention setting, nature, relaxation, community and space to guide you to communicate with your divine life purpose and soul mission. 

2020 is the year of courage through love. Your big heart lights up the world, so let’s spend this sacred moment in time to magnify your radiance — to help you show up in the world, and light the path for not just you, but all around you too.

Join us from 29 December through to 1 January. This retreat is your time to Magnify Your Radiance. Brave loving hearts YOUR TIME IS NOW!

Magnify Your Radiance Teachers

Blending together the gifts and teachings of two women who’s soul intentions are to live from a place of love and alignment, and extend arms of love for those who wish to do the same; Carol Macartney and Kate Taylor will be holding space for you.

About Carol 

Love Transmitter

After twenty five years of teaching Yoga, through classes, workshops and retreats around the planet and studying with some of the worlds most respected and influential teachers, Carol has inspired many hundreds of people on their path of Yoga, influencing many of those to go on to train as teachers themselves.

She has now arrived at a place on her own path towards realisation, that we are all transmitters of the truth (Sat Nam) and arrive on this earth plane with our own unique gifts to share with the world.

Through the practice, she offers ways  to reveal their truth and to ‘Magnify their Radiance’ opening to the deeper heart and finding the jewel within the lotus. Her deep desire is to be of service to others.

The style of Yoga she teaches is a unique tapestry of golden threads, from guided Meditations, Breathwork, Asana, Kriya, Mantra and her greatest joy, Yoga Dance.

One final love note:

Both Kate and Carol have been guided and inspired to collaborate on this retreat, as they recognise their shared desire to assist others along their path in this incredible lifetime. They share an awareness of the powerful Aquarian Age that we are now in, where so much change is happening so quickly and the importance of raising our awareness to wake up to the joy and love that reside within.

This retreat invites participants with no former experience or those with a wealth of experience to share. Quite simply we arrive with a desire to break free of all limitations and an urge to live in joy, integrity and love.

This might be the best Christmas present you have ever given to yourself or gifted to a loved one! The question you could ask yourself is ‘Can I afford not to?’
