Chakra Bliss Soul Retreat
Restore your balance and bliss with a day just for yourself.
When is the last time you took a day off for self-care and relaxation? When did you last connect with other women soul-to-soul, and took part in gentle healing rituals to bring balance and bliss to your life and body?
Lauri and Damla are inviting you to do just that in a comfortable, cozy, nourishing, and healing day retreat. We will meet in Damla’s living room in Durham to hold the intention of restoring our bliss and re-igniting our connection to our souls through Ayurveda, yoga, chanting, crystal healing and more.
No need to travel to a retreat center or plan an overnight trip. This is your chance to give yourself a much-needed break and uplift right in your neighborhood.

“Chakra Bliss Soul Retreat is a wonderful day to recharge and learn something new about yourself. Self-care is of utmost important, and Damla and Lauri provided me with practical tools and ideas to integrate into my every day practice. I really enjoyed the day. I think the activities chosen were perfect for the event, and that the flow of the day was very smooth. The transitions between each component worked well and it came together nicely. Both Lauri and Damla did a wonderful job! I think the way you set up the day was great. I think it was also wonderful that you both participated in the half that you were not facilitating. I thank you both for taking your time to share your knowledge with us. After the retreat I felt wonderful! I felt relaxed and happy. I also felt a spark to try to shift my routine to include more self-care and energy work practices regularly.”
“Overall I loved the event! I would recommend Chakra Bliss Soul Retreat to anyone who needs a day to recharge themselves.”
