Embodied Empowerment

LA GOMERA, 29.4. - 6.5.2023

A quest for women with Romana Tripolt

Embodied Empowerment is the first of three, individually bookable journeys. 

Embodied Transformation will take place from 26.8.-2.9.2023 and Embodied Celebration from 27.4.-4.5.2024.


One cycle of three workshop lays already behind us and rich of experiences, impressions, transformations and lasting friendships we are looking forward to this new chapter and to the next three groups of communities of wonderful, brave women.

How do you get to yourself?

How do you get to your senses?

What is your attitude towards your body?

How do you recognize the beauty of your body and the uniqueness of your own dance?

How do you feed yourself, your strength, your loyalty to yourself?

How can you value strength and connection with other women higher than the urge to compete?

How do you weave the net you allow yourself 

to drop into?

What is real and what is true for you?

How do you shape your reality?

How do you lead and whom or what do you follow?

How do you develop self-will and power?


We will deal with these and many more questions for a week, dancing in a group of courageous women. With process-oriented individual work (IBT) in the group, we will face and transform obstacles that show themselves on our dancing path. This is how we learn to dance with shadow and light and to ride the inner dragon gracefully.


With the map of the 5 rhythms we arrive completely in the presence and align body, mind and emotion.


In Flowing we strengthen the motherly energies and nourish the unconditional love for life. Rooted feet dance freely on this earth.


In Staccato we learn to express ourselves and how to set and defend limits. We bring into life what is important to us. Fiery hips swinging in the rhythms of creativity and passion.


In Chaos we learn to master the unpredictable and to surrender to the waves of life. The head relaxes completely, old thoughts melt in the vibrations of the swirling spine.


In the rhythm of Lyrical we find and reinvent our dance again and again and become creators of our reality. The connection between heart and hands turns them into our magical tools. Shakti helps us to consciously shape life.



„Vulnerability is our most accurate measurement of courage.“

Brené Brown


Join a group of dedicated women for a week of moving, processing, dreaming, expressing, creating and integrating. Embraced by the raw beauty of the volcano island, the lush nature, the pounding waves, dancing dolphins, the beauty of the remote retreat center El Cabrito. Finally bringing back the transformative power, the treasures you’ll find on this journey to your live at home.



Digital detox experiment

The internet and phone connection on El Cabrito is very bad and vulnerable. We think this is the perfect condition for an experiment and we would like to invite you to try digital detoxing during your stay.



To be in the "here and now" with all your senses, to break habits, to try something unfamiliar, maybe to trick yourself and because of 1000 other reasons...


How to do that?

Inform your beloved ones, that for this week you will only be available in case of emergency through El Cabrito's office by phone or email. Bring an alarm clock with you! We will provide a camera you can use to make photos and we will send them to you afterwards.

We also offer you to take care of your mobile phone in the meantime.

Due to these circumstances a "digital time off" should be manageable, no?

If this experiment sounds pleasurable for you - please let us know!



Workshop Details

We will start our journey on Saturday, April 29, 2023 at 9pm. 

There will be 5 full retreat days with approximately 6 workshop hours and one optional excursion day. 

We will dance in the mornings and in the evenings and there will be plenty of free beach time.

Our last session will be in the evening of Saturday, the 5th.

Day of departure is Sa, May 6, 2023.


Workshop language is depending on participants. German or English.




We are aware that flying is usually cited as the first major climate sin.

For this reason we would like to encourage you, that the amount of harmful CO₂ emitted during your air travel, is saved elsewhere.


The trip from Vienna to La Gomera emits 1,44Tn of CO₂ into the atmosphere. The emission will happen and will be bad for the environment. The good news: you can invest in a compensation project that works to ensure that the same amount of CO₂ is saved elsewhere.

The amount for this compensation is ~43 Euro. 


We kindly ask you to make this payment e.g. to this project on La Gomera: Plántate Project

If you want to get into the theme deeper, we recommend the very informative website of Climate Austria.
