An ecstatic event, alive with the joy of Self-discovery and the wonder of genuine spiritual inquiry. In a magical environment participants quickly find themselves swept up in the possibility of a total and unimaginable transformation. What do we mean by Awakening? In short, we mean waking up from the dream of your separate, limited existence to the utterly liberating mystery of who you really are, of who we all really are, as One Consciousness. Awakening to our True Nature as Consciousness we discover the “I” that is ever-present and without limits or location. We are not merely confined to a body-mind, rather the body-mind, appears in us. Resting in and as that “I” that transcends and includes all that appears we discover that our True Nature is inherently at Peace. We discover that there is nothing missing and therefore we are inherently Happy. We discover that we are intimately one with all appearances and are therefore Love itself, in which there is no room for “otherness”, distance or separation. Awakening says "YES" to Life, because our True Self is the dimensionless field of pure sensitivity, intelligence and receptivity that intimately welcomes every experience as a modification of its own Being. This 10 day Evolutionary Awakening retreat is dedicated to the discovery, exploration and manifestation of this Awakening Consciousness both individually and collectively. You will enter a spiritually charged and highly creative space to explore the deeper implications of spiritual awakening. You will learn ways of working individually and with others to manifest a new possibility for life on this planet. Can we imagine living in a context in which others are only interested in supporting the emergence of our own highest potential? Can we imagine discovering together a shared sense of purpose that far transcends the personal dimension of our lives and hence unifies all in a seamless Whole? Contemplating such questions within ourselves and with others opens us to infinite possibilities for human development. If you are hungry for deep and lasting transformation, if you want to illuminate the shadows that hold you back, if you want to come together with others in an ecstatic and positively challenging journey in which we reach for the highest, and if you want to experience all of this in an integral context that embraces nature, exercise and delicious vegetarian meals, then this retreat may be for you. In this retreat you will: • Discover the timeless transcendent dimension of Being through deep meditation • Engage in deep and subtle contemplation of Non-Duality • Learn how to identify and transcend your ego patterns, self-image and limitations • Engage in dynamic group work to evoke "Higher WE" Consciousness • Practice Qi Gong and Meditative Nature Walks The first 5 days of this retreat will be held in silence devoted to the discovery of profound inner freedom through the practice of meditation and contemplative inquiry exercises aimed at illuminating the perception of non-duality or unity consciousness. Peter & Cynthia will give a variety of guided meditations that are simple and direct and will lead you to the source of your Being. Most of the meditations will be in a group but you will also have the opportunity to meditate alone in a beautiful spot in nature if you wish. Everyday there will be a question and answer session with Peter & Cynthia. Rooted in the timeless and joyful mystery of Being, we discover the source of true happiness free from desire and fear. Before this you felt like an isolated individual struggling to navigate through the confines of a busy mind. Now you see yourself as a mysterious locus of awareness floating in an ocean of consciousness that is bigger than your mind can ever know. We will then, during the second 5 days, explore and discover who we are as an evolving individuated expression of the Universal Consciousness becoming conscious of itself. While still doing regular meditations, we will now begin exploring and interacting with each other and together we will evoke an awakened field of a Higher WE. Peter & Cynthia will introduce themes for contemplation through presentations in the morning and then in the afternoon we will meet in small groups. The group work will be very spontaneous and dynamic. Our goal is to evoke in and through ourselves the experience of One Being expressing itself through the many. When this emergence occurs then a new order of relatedness, a new level of consciousness, a deeper and higher perspective spontaneously reveals itself. This emergence is always unimaginable until the moment it explodes into existence. Retreat participants are limited to 35 people, so please reserve your place early!
