This spiritual and psychological retreat is based on integrating spiritual awareness with psychological understandings. The retreat will hold space for you to realize your potential to change unconscious and deeply held belief patterns. It will help you become aware of the patterns that keep you in a stuck place, and how to release, heal and then create new ways of being with and believing in yourself. This retreat is not designed for individual sessions with the facilitator nor will it offer individual therapy---it is based on an educational and self-directed model. We will engage in group discussion and group practices in order to increase insight into our holding patterns so that we can consciously make different choices. It is a retreat meant to empower, provide tools and resources, and will encourage you to fully look at those parts of you that you chose to avoid while being nurtured, supported and cared for.
