Week 2
Laetitia Santarelli-The Medicine of Dreams

July 25 from 2-5 pm
This workshop is free to all Summer Camp participants and 25 euros for anyone not signed up in Summer Camp.
The medicine of dreams
An interactive workshop focuses on some key questions about dreaming. Why do we dream? What role does dreaming play from a physiological and psychological point of view? How to decode this secret language that emerges from our unconscious mind?
From the dawn of time, different cultures and civilizations throughout history have given a special meaning – and place to dreams, considering them a medicine in their own right.
We’ll explores why it is important to pay attention to your dreams and how to use them in your everyday life as an internal compass. The medicine of dreams is the result of a synergy between our conscious mind that illuminates messages from our sub-conscious mind. The workshop will have a theoretical component but will include an interactive session which will allow us to explore conscious dreaming through a guided visualisation led by Laetitia.

Week 3
Le St Barth Juice Club and the St-Barth Summer Camp Yoga Challenge Detox
For the second year in a row, The St Barth Juice club will be helping summer camp de-toxers both into and out of the 10-day brown rice diet. Juicing helps to restore the system by reducing inflammation, toxins, and will powerfully support health goals. The first juice cure begins on July 30 and runs for 3 days. Five carefully designed juices will help support the organs of elimination, the nervous system and the digestive system. The second cure, on the other end of the brown rice 10-day fast, runs from Aug. 12 to Aug 14, a safe way to come ‘off’ the brown rice diet.

Week 5 –
Janzu party

Saturday, August 15 at Nikki Beach far aside of the beach opposite the Nikki Beach restaurant

Free to summer camp participants
Janzu was invented by Juan Villatoro while he was living on an ashram in India in the 1990s. Practitioners and devotees claim the treatment allows both physical and emotional blockage to be gently released. Each session takes place in warm, chest-high water. The facilitator leads his guest through a series of flowing water movements and massages. It will be a wonderful way to integrate the Summer Camp experience. St. Barth’s Janzu facilitators will be on hand throughout the afternoon to do 20-30 minute sessions.
