I am myself wherever I am. And I let the world adjust.
This is not your typical retreat.
The purpose of this retreat is not to help you escape from life, but to help you live more and feel more alive.
A life we need to escape from is not the point of life. If you want FREEDOM from your hardship in this life you must be willing to lean towards the light.
We can easily get swept away by life and the ever changing current.
When pain, anguish, restlessness, dissatisfaction, low energy or boredom take root it splays out within us and takes over our body, mind and psyche. We suffer an amnesia of the SPIRIT.
We forget how easy it can be to lean ourselves towards goodness again.
We forget we have agency and a choice in the matter. We forget how deeply we care about our lives and the people in it and this world.
This retreat for those who want to rest, soften the body and teach their system how be peaceful. We will open wide in presence and learn how to courageously and continuously lean towards peace and goodness.
We will never ask you to fake it until you make it. You are not an impostor, you are true to yourself. We will never ask you to focus on 'feel good' only. We accept that life is full of experiences, some joyful and some that cause us pain. The reality of life is the tug and tension between both worlds.
We never ask you to be strong. We will remind you to soften the body and to dance with nature. We will show you how you can laugh so hard and reach for joy. You will feel held by a community and learn to ask for more support.
You will not be overwhelmed with the 'need' to be cured. But we will invite you to experience feelings of awe and aha moments and wonder at the mysteries of life.
There are no ra-rah-rah-happy-clappy promises. We know life will never will life only be one way. And yet, you will find a way, find a process, so that when life comes as it always does, dancing on wind through your door you are able to find a calm spot within the eye of the storm, you will learn to flow with all of the friction, colours, chaos and the phases of life.
There are no gurus in the room. Even with all the knowledge in the world we have found that that's not been enough. Suffering will forever exist and our life-time of hard-won experience is how we embody the work that is needed. We also have decades of specialist expertise across cultures and backgrounds.
