THIS AMAZING RETREAT IS BEING OFFERED AT-COST! $250 HOLDS YOUR SPOT, READ BELOW FOR FULL PRICING.

"I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening - a portal opening to genuine emotional and spiritual transformation." -Peter A Levine, PhD.

This retreat is what my heart has been longing to share since my own experiences of spiritual awakening in India years ago. I was very fortunate to have participated in, and been trained in the facilitation of "Awareness Intensive", otherwise known as "Who is In?" or "Satori" groups. Although hundreds, possibly thousands of people have had enlightenment experiences in these groups, the process has remained relatively obscure. As I later learned about trauma healing techniques, I kept remembering my experiences in India, recognizing that the treauma healing process and spiritual awakening are synonymous: Awareness, presence, felt-sense, self-reflection, and attunement with empathetic others.

"I am amazed at what has come from the energy shift that occurred for me in just the relatively brief intro evening and I am in excited anticipation to see what more powerful shifts will develop from the three day workshop coming up. I am ready!" - Bethany, Nevada City

Just as trauma can cause us to face our deepest fears and to rebuild our sense of self after it has been shattered, spiritual awakening often begins with disillusionment. It is a process of unlearning, feeling rather than thinking, and letting go of our grip on the world. It comes to those who are determined to see and think without editing or distorting, to perceive without filters. On the other side of all of our fears, and everything we thought we knew, is the truth of this moment. This is what Ekhart Tolle refers to in The Power of Now. Perhaps one of the best ways I can describe the intention of this retreat is that it's an actual practice of what that book points to; a real-life experience of the power of now.

This will be a fully immersive, highly structured, experiential deep-dive into the truth of our innermost being. Just as two mirrors facing each other create an infinity pattern, when two humans face each other within the safety of dyads, consciousness can be expanded. Within this context we'll be exploring possibilities for growth and awakening. With deep presence, and without interruption or judgment, we use powerful questions and koans which elicit insights and direct experiences of our true nature. The processes are supported by active meditations to help release tension and holding patterns from the body, unlocking life-force energy, and allowing the possibility of deep transformation including spiritual awakening.

"In the stillness of the quiet, if we listen we can hear the whisper of the heart giving strength to weakness, courage to fear, hope to despair." -Howard Thurman.

Who are you really?

What it is:

  • A safe, supportive environment for self-exploration and authentic communication.
  • A practice of deeply seeing and listening to others.
  • A helpful adjunct for trauma therapies, recovery, or other meditation practices.
  • A very powerful awareness practice.

What it isn't:

  • Philosophy.
  • Tough love.
  • Therapy.
  • Advice.

The value you'll receive is to:

  • Unlock and reclaim energy wasted in unconscious survival responses.
  • Increase the ability to connect with self and others by practicing deep presence while communicating and listening.
  • Build greater capacity for handling chaotic and stressful situations.
  • Increase your ability to accurately track inner-body sensations, which is a key to meditation, emotional self-regulation, and trauma resolution.

Event Background:

The processes we'll be using are based in part on Somatic Experiencing®, the social engagement system as described by Dr. Stephen Porges, attachment theory, and the "Enlightenment Intensive" concept which was created by Charles and Ava Berner in the 1960's.

Other than structured communication exercises with partners, we will be in silence and isolation for a large part of the retreat.
