Description

The Retreat

Far too many of us have been driven by an internal voice that pushes, criticizes and incessantly reminds us of our shortcomings and missed opportunities. The cost of this habit is that we cannot come home to ourselves and find a warm, loving and safe refuge within.

Join us as we navigate a science-based, step-by-step path to transform your destructive inner critic into a nurturing coach. We will use the healing power of noble silence to metabolize the learning—blending in partner exercises, self-inquiry and meditation so we can process the work inside the retreat, not just get information to work on after the retreat.

This journey takes place in a safe and supportive environment for those with trepidation to embark on the path, as well as for those with calluses on their “souls.” We will create inward shifts that can be cultivated with more self-awareness leading to greater self-acceptance. It’s time to reduce stress and anxiety and make room for joy and ease—thus making this a better world, starting with ourselves.
