Let’s run away together for a 6 day, 5 night retreat of slow beachside living in a UNESCO preserved private artist residence just steps to the clear waters of Formentera. Join Anna Bek, local artists & healers from Aug 30-Sept 4th, 2020 on this small sun-drenched island only 3o minutes off of Ibiza, Spain where time stands still and days are filled with long swims in the sea, nourishing locally sourced plant-based food, and good company who enjoy the simple act of taking time to reset the body and mind to find clarity around creating the life they love.
The workshops are designed to provide you with ample time to explore your creative, professional, and life goals in depth; work on your art if you so chose to, and explore the beaches, artisan markets, and lighthouses. Get to know your fellow travelers; and find down time to recharge on your own. This promises to be a transformative, once-in-a-lifetime journey—a unique opportunity to be both restored and inspired by the bliss of this Balearic soul haven.
Inquire for prices, full balance to be paid by June 15th.

DESIGNED TO INSPIRE
On the shoreline of the Mediterranean sea, half an hour from Ibiza, Can 7 has emerged as an experimental meeting place on a private beach on the island of Formentera. Built upon a UNESCO world heritage site, it feels like a place at the end of the world where time stands still. Designed with the notion of Bedouins, Berbers, and barefoot living in mind, Can 7 is a wild soul haven. Hand-woven textiles, white washed walls and tented roofs made from natural camel hair combine in evoking the feeling of a North African desert with the beautiful Mediterranean ocean just footsteps away.
This creative eco-system melds the worlds of art, holistic lifestyle and the environment into a uniquely open-minded community of explorers, dreamers and thinkers from across the globe. One comes here to connect, to create, and to grasp a holistic view on dealing with the environment, food, and social responsibility.
At Can7, we come together to align ourselves with nature. We promote and practice a conscious, zero waste lifestyle with a focus on water preservation, recycling, and using minimal unnatural materials in the products and packaging we consume.

We enjoy long leisurely days to unlock our “why”, workshop our ideas, focus on our mindset, and target the limiting beliefs that may be holding us back from achieving our goals. Starting each day with a buzz of energy through optional movement practices such as Yoga and Pilates, we are able to think clearly feeling empowered and embodied. Creative Workshops will either be before lunch or before dinner and will be complimented by reprogramming in Psychedelic Breath, deeply restoring Yin Yoga, and Sound Journeys with local musicians.
Through a plant based ethos, Can7 provides the unique experience of a healthy, guilt-free lifestyle within a hot spot beach locale. All of the food is prepared on-site, and completely free of sugar, meat and dairy with limited gluten. The produce is locally sourced and washed in alkaline water, with limited processing by the team of in house chefs. Meals are eaten together in order to maintain focus on our community as well as our nourishment. Additionally, the kitchen welcomes an alchemist in weekly to create an extraordinary assortment of kombucha flavors that change with each batch.
Anna Bek grew up sneaking into Blues clubs with her father in the Music City of Nashville, Tennessee. Her love for music and cameras found her working in Music Television and for Rock Photographers while still in High School. She was blessed to spend 8 years in the darkroom developing a romance with Photography well before Digital Cameras. After graduating from University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts and School of Fine Arts, she fought her way through Hollywood until hitting injury and burnout despite loving the work she was doing. Yoga and Pilates came into her life as a way to reconnect with her body, repair her severe back problem, and provide her tools to navigate mindset blocks that had embedded from negative business partnerships. She dedicated the past 5 years to growing her Yoga business, which has ultimately brought her more clarity in how she wants to show up as an artist with a heart-centered Photography Business. Finding the balance has not been without heartbreak and hard times, and she sees her daily practice, the practice of creating rituals of self-care, as being the foundation from which she operates. She aims to help you to unblock and create a more balanced life that fills you up with freedom and purpose.
