Embodied Awakening Retreats: Sacred Renewal

Our autumn retreat will continue the exploration of the Nature of Mind. This does not refer to conventional thinking mind but to the primordial ground of being, which is sometimes called clear-light mind. This is your true nature and it’s always intimately available.

If you want to dive deeper into liberation process, this retreat offers a supporting and nourishing context for your inner journey. You will receive simple and profound practices grounded on natural relaxation, spontaneous presence and effortlessness.

The practices are inspired by Machig Labdrön, who was an 11th century Tibetan yogini widely renowned for developing the practice of chöd. She established a practice lineage of her own through an organic fusion of tantra, dzogchen and shamanism.

Although chöd is mostly known as a practice for emotional assimilation (“feeding your demons"), the core of Machig’s teaching is full immersion in dynamic primal space: inconceivable absolute Awareness. In a timeless flash she cuts through the web of conditioned mind and unveils the natural state in its nakedness.

In this special retreat, participants will be led through powerful pit instructions to recognize the astonishing immediacy of one’s innate nondual awareness. There will be tantrik energy-body practices to support healing and regeneration, as well as versatile embodiment practices and ecstatic dance.

“An utter mystery — it can’t be named.
Supple and free — all sense of “I” is gone.
Totally transparent — emotional reactions cannot take hold.
Radiantly clear — free from any fixation, inside or out.
Vividly present — direct immediacy, not attaching to anything.”

The retreat program includes:

*Inspiring meditations to ignite the fire of awakening
*Practices for abiding in the senses
*Empowerment through embodying your true nature
*Tools for the awakening process
*Understanding emotions as pure energy
*Intuitive movement
*Daily dynamic and restorative yoga
*Ecstatic Dance Ceremony
*Authentic sharing in community

Welcome to the Embodied Wholeness Retreat! Join us and open to the magic of the human experience; the beauty of authentic connection and the healing depth of integrating all our different parts into an integral whole!

We are all on a journey to wholeness. Wholeness is the experience of embracing and welcoming all of who we are in our own loving awareness. This means being loving and present to every aspect of ourselves, especially those parts that are hardest to love.

Through compassionate integration, we can more and more embody an unified sense of being as an experiential process of connecting to our deepest values, expressing them and living them in our choices.

This retreat will be dedicated to self-connection that supports authentic and meaningful ways of living and relating. Our authenticity is an expression of our freedom: being and acting from who we really are. It takes courage and awareness to express and live our core values in relationships, work and daily life. We will practice yoga, tantra, Living Compassion and emotional integration methods to cultivate deep connection and wholeness on all levels.

At the retreat we will experience:

Nonviolent Communication (NVC)
Living Compassion
Shadow work
Deep integrative emotional alchemy
Power of ritual
Circle work
Yoga & Meditation
Delicious vegetarian food
Sauna & nature
Ecstatic Dance
Nordic Midsummer Magic


Living Compassion - Emotional Integration

We will practice different ways to connect with our inner world in a compassionate way. Living Compassion is a Nonviolent Communication based work that empowers you to be your own guide. The foundation of this work is to bring loving presence to all of our parts, the shadows and unconscious aspects of our psyche, which we haven’t fully loved until now. In these sessions we start to embrace our emotional pain instead of avoiding it, and see it as an important guide that helps us reintegrate parts of ourselves that most need our loving attention.

Practices include deep self-compassion, empowering self-responsibility and tracing any experience, however difficult, back to our essence, from where all our emotions arise. These methods are grounded in full awareness and presence with all our bodily sensations, emotional energies, thoughts that arise and the underlying value of all of these. This unconditional and empathic space to experience all of ourselves brings us more and more into wholeness.

You are warmly welcome to join us for a week of loving presence, beauty of nature and authentic community.
