Self-Empowerment Retreat Unlocking Creativity and Contentment I

About the retreat

This retreat is designed for people who are feeling stuck, lost and looking for a boost to help them discover themselves in a safe and nurturing environment.

The retreat will be based on meditation, mindfulness, reconnecting to nature and having a break from the pressures and strains of everyday life.

The weekend will provide you with guidance on developing meditation practices, self-compassion and acceptance that will be complimented by nature walks, group discussions and self-discovery.

Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is for absolutely anyone who has become disillusioned with life, fed up, stressed out and looking to find out that there is more to life than working, eating and sleeping.

If you are looking for a weekend to get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life to evaluate and re-define your goals and aspirations this retreat is for you.

Who is the retreat run by?

The retreats are organised by the Institute of Mindfulness and Transpersonal Psychology (Spain), delivered across Europe and UK.

The Institute’s centre in Spain itself has a number of onsite resident experts, including researchers, specialists and practitioners of mindfulness, accupuncture, TCM, homeopathy and transpersonal psychologists.

This transformative retreat is facilitated by mindfulness teacher and Gurmat transpersonal psychology specialist Dav Panesar.

Dav has managed to integrate his education in science, consciousness studies and transpersonal psychology with his considerable experience of over 20 years as a mindfulness practitioner and a life style grounded in authenticity and holistic self-growth.

His ground breaking research in Gurmat psychology, (Psychology of the Enlightened) has managed to successfully develop life-transformative retreats and programs founded on mindfulness & compassion based approaches in individual health, well being, self-development, self-growth towards self-actualisation and self-realisation.

Dav has been organising and running retreats in Spain and UK for many years. Dav is perhaps the first mindfulness researcher and teacher to combine mindfulness and transpersonal psychology towards a more complete sense of well being and harmony with self, others, nature and beyond.
