How long have you been doing this, and, are all of your retreats happening in Greece or do you also travel?
It all began when I was given my spiritual name from my teacher. The name ‘Salica’ has to do with salt. At the time the name felt right to me, but I didn’t know what to do with it. Over the next fifteen years I spent time each day contemplating this and bringing back this salt knowledge on earth.
I am from Germany, and one day (thirteen years ago) while living there, I had a vision that I should go to Crete to build a light centre to support love and light on earth and to help people to discover who they are to find their place in life to gain inner peace, which is the source of peace on earth.
Four years ago I had quite a big opening and my teacher and another friend helped me to bring in the knowledge of salt energy healing. My work is now aligned with my personal mission, which is to bring back the value of salt to people on earth. Salt is much more than a substance you put on your food or add to your bath. It is the source of the shift we are right in now and it is also one of the new healing methods of the Golden Age we are stepping into.
In this time I also founded the Golden Age Seminars organization to spread the salt wisdom during retreats around the world, also to organize women retreats. I saw golden seeds that we would plant in all the places around the world where we would do our work. My inspiring colleague and friend Alinea Smaragda, who also does the seminar organization, helped me to make it become real.
How did you get started with the work that you do?
At one time on the planet, for example during the time until Atlantis, there was a constant flow of energy to earth from the salt worlds in heaven. The salt in the earth was imbued with Divine consciousness from the heavens, and brought to people the knowledge that they too are Divine. During Atlantis it became less.
The salt healing that we do involves bringing the energy down from the salt heavens to the earth and clearing blockages that we all have in our chakras and energy system that are preventing us from feeling the Divine energy and knowing our purpose on earth.
From my experience I can say it is one of the most powerful therapy methods I know, and it fits very well with the transition time we are in from the old age (Kali Yuga) into the Golden Age. It is one thing to know intellectually that we are all Divine and another to experience this light directly.

What can a person expect from your retreats?
Deep transformation, a bit of adventure and also much fun.
Most of our retreats are the Salt Healer Training, which is a retreat at power places: this year we are on Crete, France, Dead Sea/Jordan and Madeira.
At the end you will receive a certificate as a Salt Priest or Priestess, and they are between 7-9 days.
After Yoga in the morning we go outside to a salt power place where we do a ceremony with prayers to bring the energy from the heavens down into the earth. We also have times where we lay on the earth. This moments are very touching as everyone feels the Divine flow from heaven to earth through himself.
In the afternoon we come into the seminar room and that is when the personal healing sessions take place where we clear blockages in the chakras. This is also where healing techniques are taught, so you learn how to help people depending on which chakra is blocked. Many of our students already have experience with giving reiki or other energy healing sessions, and they say that when they take the salt healing practices home with them and begin giving sessions, the results are incredibly powerful. They tell me how amazing it is that they don’t need to give as many sessions for a client to get results.
Also we do an exclusive retreat on Cyprus for women only. It is called “Aphrodite´s Call” after the Greek Godess. This retreat is a unique ombination of healing and empowering female energy in the daily seminar and also supported with yoga and energy massage.
I also like to incorporate yoga into the mornings of my retreats because it helps to move the body to come more easily through the transformation process during the retreat. Also we provide vegetarian, if possible vegan food.
Who would your ideal retreat participant be?
Participants who feel the call in their heart and follow it, who are longing for freedom and are also open for new wisdom. Yoga and vegan lovers or open for a new experience. In love with life on earth or who want to become more love and light.
The people I love to work with are those who want to know why they are here on earth, and want to do something with that knowledge to take their place and spread their light, to help this transition into the Golden Age.
I also like to work with people who are comfortable taking a leadership role in life – meaning that they embrace who they are and take action to do their work in the world so that others may see their light and be inspired to find their own place in the world.
What challenge have you faced that has also been a gift?
After I had my vision of moving to Crete to start this center, I didn’t act on it right away. I spent a long time considering it, and wondering if it would be the best thing for me and my son to leave Germany.
In the end I am so glad that I did it because it was the right choice. That is not to say that is was easy. There were many times that I didn’t know what to do, and it was a challenge to leave my life behind and start a new here in Crete. I can see now that I made the right decision, and it was important to trust my inner voice.
We believe human beings are innately wise and kind. But this wisdom, although always present, can be covered up. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom.
