Held once a month, in the perfect setting of the Institute of Mindfulness and Transpersonal Psychology, this course works with a specific internal energetic process for the different energy centres of the body or the 7 chakras. Individuals who attend this life changing course will be shown the 7 keys to open each of the centres and to allow themselves to feel unified and at one with themselves, gain a sense of ‘Self’ in all its entirety, to reignite the “spark” of life and end the weekend with a renewed psychological stability and physical health.
An intensive retreat that will allow the exploration of one’s inner nature through different techniques from both Eastern and Western psychology. The retreat will be a way to enable the exploration of one’s potential and facilitate both the resources and the means for internalizing harmonic sustainable practices, valid and useful for our busy day to day lives. An exploration of oneself and the connection with the seasonal changes, different correlates of yin and yang will be used as the basis for the objective evaluation of the synchronization between our personal internal rhythms and Nature.
We use hiking trails, visit caves and meditate in places dynamically surrounded by water to explore our inner-self. The retreat will draw on ancient technique of the indigenous inipi, ancient techniques from India, live guided daydreams and we will dance to the rhythm of Nature. The aim of the retreat is to find that common part that unites us and makes us to re-connect with one another, under a halo of cheerful serenity.
