Throughout our entire life – from birth to death, in moments of great joy or utter darkness – we are intimately connected with the Open Ground of Being. The Open Ground of Being is so unassumingly simple and ever-present that we tend to overlook and miss it. Innocent misunderstandings, personal conditioning and unresolved trauma, as well as looking at reality through the lens of our linear mind, make us believe that we are inherently deficient and separate from Love, Life or Spirit.
This retreat offers a sacred opportunity to see through the old trances of disconnect and gently undo our erroneous self-identities of being ‘not good enough’, insignificant or unlovable. Through a wise blend of meditation, experiential inquiries, compassionate community and tapping into the natural intelligence of our Heart and body, we gradually uncover what has been all along profoundly complete and whole.
Daily yoga (all levels) and conscious breathing are offered in support of deeper integration. During free time, participants can enjoy Blue Spirit’s white-sanded beach, swim in the Ocean or saltwater pool, unwind in the pristine presence of surrounding nature and nourish their body with Blue Spirit’s delicious and nutritious cuisine.
IMPORTANT: The nature of this retreat is mainly contemplative – and all participants need to be ready to observe silence for parts of this week, in order to lessen the distractions that stand in the way of deep insight and truly befriending ourselves.
