Trauma 2 Satori; Healing, Growth, Awakening
Who are you beyond suffering and struggle? This retreat is a fully immersive, highly structured, experiential deep-dive into the truth of our innermost being. Just as two mirrors facing each other create an infinity pattern, when two humans connect in dyads, consciousness is expanded. Within this context we'll be co-exploring growth edges and new possibilities. With deep presence, and without interruption or judgment, we explore powerful questions and koans which elicit insights and direct experiences of our true nature. The processes are supported by active meditations to help release tension and holding patterns from the body, unlocking life-force energy, and allowing the possibility to directly experience the true "Self.""I am amazed at what has come from the energy shift that occurred for me in just the relatively brief intro evening and I am in excited anticipation to see what more powerful shifts will develop from the three day workshop coming up.
