TRAUMA 2 SATORI; Trauma Healing & Spiritual Growth

Friday, August 23, 2019, 12:00 AM

Limited time early-bird discount! "I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening - a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation". - Peter Levine Some people not only bounce back from adversity, they actually develop a deeper sense of meaning, closer relationships, and a greater appreciation of life as a result of the struggles. This retreat is a fully immersive, highly structured, experiential deep-dive into positive transformation. The intention is to create expanded states of consciousness through dyads (with partners). Within this context, we use powerful questions and koans (questions which cannot be answered with the rational mind) to elicit deep insights and direct experiences of "Self". The processes are supported by active meditations to help unlock energy and deepen the search. Who are you really? What it is: A supportive environment for self-exploration. An opportunity to deconstruct self-sabotaging thought patterns and emotional triggers. Active, fun, safe ways to authentically connect with others. A very powerful awareness practice. What it isn't: Philosophy. Tough love. Therapy. Advice. The value you'll receive is to: Unlock and reclaim energy wasted in unconscious survival responses. Build greater capacity for handling chaotic and stressful situations.  Increase connection with self, others, and the world by practicing deep presence while communicating and listening. Have the possibility of directly experiencing the natural "Self" which is vibrant and whole - and not subject to time or trauma. Retreat Background: The processes we'll be using are based in part on the "Enlightenment Intensive" concept which was created by Charles and Ava Berner in the 1960's. In its original form, this was a very powerful meditative group process which often resulted in participants experiencing satoris (unexpected, sudden glimpses of enlightenment). The Trauma 2 Satori retreat takes this basic idea and updates it to include insights from neuroscience, attachment theory, Polyvagal Theory, and Somatic Experiencing®. "I absolutely loved this healing experience. I noticed a DEEP integration that lasted all week afterwards. Truly profound and absolutely healing. If anyone feels called to participate, I truly recommend. There is so much we have to learn about ourselves and this is another great tool to do so. Plus, it is all about presence with whatever arises, which is in my opinion the most important part of the healing process. I absolutely loved the help of music as well. Very wonderful experience. So much gratitude". -Nicole (Face 2 Face participant in Reno) Retreat Details: Other than structured communication exercises guided processes, we will be in silence through most of the retreat. To help support the processes, we'll be eating light vegetarian meals together as a group. We will also be sleeping in the Main Lodge's upstairs guest rooms. Therefore, this retreat will be limited to a maximum of 14 participants*. There will be limited time for being in nature and soaking in the hot springs during the retreat, so it is highly encouraged to come early or stay an extra day or two after the retreat ends to fully experience the full beauty of Sierra Hot Springs.  Room check-in: 3pm Thursday August 22 Group dinner and retreat check-in: 5pm August 22 Retreat begins: 8pm Thursday August 22 Retreat finishes: 3pm Sunday August 25 Retreat Price Includes Meals: Normal retreat cost is $750.
