NEW YEAR 2024: 7-Day Retreat, La Palma

21 Jan - 27 Jan


Fire Your Inspiration with the Energy of an Active Volcano!

Life is terraforming all around us, with the breakdown of the bankrupt and fraudulent old world construct. It’s time for the emergence of a new human consciousness for only this can shape a new reality that is rejuvenated, vibrant and abundant with the light of the divine.

That’s the absolute magic of La Palma – a high-vibration portal, set on an idyllic volcanic island, that so readily transcends the matrix. People on retreat here quickly forget the density of the old construct and set their souls soaring on the outstretched wings of new possibility, adventure and alchemy. Embody it here, and then carry the new energies back to your world to uplift and transform it.

Spend 7 days on this magical paradise, bathing in the illumination of the Openhand energies, undertaking life transfromative processes, so you may navigate successfully through the changing landscape of the Shift. Our work was crafted for this! <<< Open 💙

New Year Quantum Shift Retreat, ZOOM


“I found the volcanic Isla Bonita stunning on my first visit. When I went back and realised the new volcano had appeared on what felt like the edge of our retreat centre it was totally jaw-dropping. The connections made with Gaia, Isla Bonita, the originals, and Venusian etheric support were heartfelt and beautiful.” Tilly

Using Ground Breaking Openhand Meditations and Illuminating Self-Realisation, incorporating Himalayan Yogic Practices, crafted through years of development, we take you on a journey into the profound nature of being. But this is only the beginning. We’ll then activate soul, and work to untether it from karmic density that’s been limiting your life in 2023. A quantum leap then becomes possible. We’ll help you harness higher dimensional light that is currently infusing the planet that will transform your life by unleashing new creative consciousness into 2024.


  1. In-depth exploration of the self including the absolute, the soul, our chakra system, false self identities, kundalini and spirit-light-body activation.
  2. Energy processing to release internal blockages, conditioned limiting behaviours, past life karma, energy implants and entites.
  3. Self realisation exercises, guided meditations, deep consciousness bodywork, soul stirring ceremony with group and individual interaction.
  4. Deep exploration of the 5D Ascension Shift that our Earth and a wave of humanity are unfolding through, from an intellectual and energetic internal revelation of higher being.
  5. Dealing with immediate challenges and opportunities, activating intuitive guidance and benevolent support into your daily 3D life – how can we best harness the guidance for successful living in 2024.

This is Openhand’s Stage 2 5GATEWAYS Work: It’s open to newbies as well as seasoned travellers. Wherever you are on the path, it will meet you energetically and give you an essential booster forwards.

We’ll be applying Openhand’s Ground-breaking Processes for the actualisation of your 5D Self

Guided By Open, Embodying the Openhand Energies

The retreat will be guided by Open, who is a higher dimensional bridge embodying the Openhand Energies. It’s a field of Ascended Master Consciousness that can bring dormant aspects of your own Higher Self alive. Open is readily able to empathically attune to your field, activate and process through karmic blockages. He’s also highly aware and skilled at removing entities and implants in a person’s field. He’ll be opening portals into the angellic realm to support your processing and also bridges to star-soul groups that can animate new frequencies of beingness. His purpose and skill is to unleash the latest higher version of you in your life and into the world.

What’s needed now more than ever, amongst the utter chaos of the collapsing old world paradigm, is the revelation and actualisation of your God Self, for only this can prosper in the terraforming landcsape ahead.
