Grounding therapy or earthing will help you configure your thoughts and emotions by (re)connecting you to the earth through a host of grounding techniques. Rikkie’s grounding therapy and spiritual retreat in Bali is an apt retreat for anyone who has been feeling overanxious, uneven or spiritually hollow for a long time.
Rikke's principal aim during the retreat is to help align your body and mind in a safe space. For that, she uses her clairvoyant abilities and tools to take one to a place of harmony and comfort. Some of the tools she will use during these sessions include helping you to connect with your breath and how to direct your energy down by using your limbs to bind yourself to the earth. The latter practice takes the energy from the earth and sends it across the body so that you start feeling more aware of the ‘now.’
Rikke keeps her retreat super private and allows only four students per batch. Rikke as a child was highly intuitive to the external and internal subtle energies around her. Over the years, she expanded her realm of psychic powers and abilities in order to help people realize their spiritual potential.
