Opening the Chakras
with Astrology, Yoga and Sound

with Kaypacha and Gongmaster Dolph

May 8-14, 2019
Granada, Spain


2019 is a year of “coming home to our deepest Self” and balancing our inner needs with our outer lives.  Amidst the pressure and distractions brought on by an ever-changing external landscape, we are being called to strengthen our resolve and tune into our deepest Soul purpose for living.  Astrology, yoga, and sound are the three oldest and most universal means of tapping into, opening and connecting to our spiritual Self.  This workshop will use all these and more to assist you in centering yourself in your core to both renew your spirit and empower your life.

Kaypacha will share his research in using your astrological birth chart to identify your strengths/weaknesses as emotions that are either fully expressed or suppressed, and stored in the organs/chakras.  Medical astrology correlates the signs and planets to the chakras, and kundalini yoga has corresponding yoga postures/poses to strengthen, heal and balance your entire chakra system.  This is groundbreaking work, combined with the genius of Dolph and his sound healing, promises to be an amazing, powerful experience.  We hope you will join us!



Wednesday, May 8th
After dinner, Kaypacha will present “What the #$%& is Goin’ On?” - an astrological overview
of the year of 2019. This 2 hour exploration will lay the foundation for our work together.
The talk is also open to the local public. Price: 20€ at the door.

Thursday, May 9th
After breakfast, Kaypacha will take us through the 12 signs of the zodiac, using description, mythology, movement, and music.  Following a review of both the planets and houses we will begin deciphering the natal birth chart with an emphasis on your soul intentions for this lifetime.  Sunset will be celebrated with sound and breathwork.

Friday, May 10th
Starting the day with yoga guided by Kaypacha (accompanied by the Gong),  we continue with a Chakra workshop with Gongmaster Dolph and Kaypacha. In the first session we will go into the lower 3 chakras as they are the birth-rights of our human existence.

Saturday, May 11th
After feeling our lower chakras, representing the elements of water and earth, we complete the experience by physically connecting with those elements. We embark on an excursion to the Nerja Caves (​, leaving the world behind as we enter into the "womb of Mother Earth". Upon resurfacing from the caves, we will spend a playful day at Playa de Cantarrijan with picnic lunch on the beach. This beach is a naturist, clothing-optional beach.

Sunday, May 12th
Morning yoga with Kaypacha, accompanied by the Gong, will be followed by a Chakra workshop with Gongmaster Dolph and Kaypacha after lunch.
In the second session we will go into the 3 higher chakras that guide us into a higher state of consciousness.

Monday, May 13th
After the Yoga and Gong session, Kaypacha and Dolph will hold an astrology and chakra workshop in the morning. In the third session we will bring the lower chakras up and the higher chakras down to embrace in the center of our undefeated heart. To round this experience up we will go on an excursion to Granada. Carrying a mesmerizing ancient history, this city is the perfect opportunity to connect to our higher chakras of wisdom, truth and knowledge. We spend the afternoon around the historical centre of Granada, sight-seeing and contemplating on how the religious wars can be seen as our own battles within.  An optional visit to the mesmerizing Alhambra Fortress can be organized, if you let us know in time (please contact Fay). Finally we will regroup for the “Last Supper” as farewell celebration in a Spanish restaurant (dinner not included in the workshop price).

Tuesday, May 14th
After breakfast we will gather together in a closing circle to integrate all that has been presented.
Sharing our feelings, fears, and ambitions, we will support each other in moving forward in a new empowered way and say farewell.


***In order to gain the most benefit from this program and not hold back the group, you will need at least a basic understanding of the signs and planets and aspects of your birthchart.  For this reason, your registration includes Kaypacha’s webinar Astrology 101 webinar series free of charge ($120 value) so you can learn these basics beforehand!  In it, he goes through the meaning of the signs, planets, houses, and aspects (16 hours total).***



House of Light was conceived of and built as a retreat centre for personal growth work and as such the workshop spaces have been designed to inspire you, not only to feel safe and held but also to feel connected with beauty and with nature. One of the main inspirations for building a retreat centre here is the location, nestled in the heart of La Alpujarra. This very landscape has a vibrant, raw energy all of its own, teaming with bird life and vibrant with colour. When working to know oneself deeper there are, inevitably, times when you need time and space to reflect and settle and so we have created a few places for contemplation in and around the centre.

  1. Hello, hola,
    I’m from Granada and I love astrology and yoga.

    But I’ve always wondered: considering Spain is in the wrong timezone (+1, when it should be 0), what timezone should I use for my birth chart? The “natural” one, or the time the clock was giving when I was born?

    • I trust the software on that question Sara! The programmers have updated timezone/location over and over and over. When you input your birthtime and place into either “” or one of the astrology programs it will automatically correct it. So input the time that was on the birth certificate or the clock and you should be good to go. If you then go to a good astrologer they can also rectify the chart even closer after working with you. Injoy!

  2. Hi Tom, what happens if you do not know your time of birth? My Mother says it was around 1pm, however she had 5 children and I am not sure of accuracy. I have tried to find out from hospital where I was born, they told me I would have to seek the Canadian Archives. Is the birth time of vital importance in order for me to know and grow from my chart? Thankyou Connie Doerksen

  3. Hello, and welcome everybody to this “Opening the chakras” retreat.
    Astrology-Yoga- Sound
    Introducing myself Dolph (Gongmaster Dolph), as co-facilitator to this amazing and powerful “healing” experience. Using the guidance of the “Masters of Sound & Energy”

    Every soul incarnated in this time zone with a specific task, the main purpose of this retreat is to help you find that task, re-align the divine feminine and masculine forces within and retune the chakras that have been holding you back from that soul’s purpose and your multi-dimensional Be-ing.

    During this retreat I will be assisting Kaypacha as sound-healer with Chinese gongs and Tibetan bowls in his kundalini yoga exercises as well as several Gong sound bath’s, reflecting the Truth of the moment that will bring you out of separation into unification with ALL that IS.

    During the chakra “teachings” I will help you with my knowledge to mentally understand (“Yoga of the mind”) the polarity of energies per chakra. Through the law of nature the negative & positive energies in motion (E-motion) we will help you to shine the light on the shadows to be conquered. Showing the imbalanced chakra due to excessive or deficient energy. What caused it and what healing commodities and affirmations can be used to re-tune it? Tools for future use will be handed out to you, step by step bringing spirit into matter. I will be using the concept of 2 triangles per chakra and bring them together as the symbolic sacred six-pointed star, which in fact is the geometric symbol of the first octave of manifestation as well as the sign of a fully integrated masculine and feminine energy field. Kaypacha bringing the correlated planets of that specific chakra and its yoga postures into the experiential field. As group we will be ploughing the field together for the unknown future and personal timing to use your own seeds to germinate.

    The chosen accommodation at the “House of Light” in Orgiva, on the edge of the Al Pujarra mountains, its beautiful design, excellent food that is tuned into our “work” and peaceful surrounding will be as a cherry on a cake.

    Thank you for joining us
    With Sound & Light
    Dolph (initiated Ambassador of the root-race “People of the Six-pointed Star”)
