AWARENESS RETREAT FOR ALL

The movie, “The Bucket List” talks about a unique way the Egyptian gods decide whether someone enters heaven or not.  Those who come to them after death are asked two questions.  The answer to these questions will determine whether they will enter heaven or not.  The first question is:  Have you found joy in your life?  The second is: Has your life brought joy to others?  Here is a retreat for you that will take you to the source of joy, the living waters.

It is an eight-day residential retreat for lay people, religious and priests.  The retreat consists of inputs, guided meditations, personal reflections and structured exercises in an atmosphere of silence.  The retreat is a synergy of psychology and spirituality from an eastern perspective. The retreatants are helped to get in touch with themselves and discover deeper resources within that will bring joy, freedom, peace and love into their lives.  The structured exercises will help the retreatants free themselves from aspects of their lives that keep them stuck and fearful and open the door to the source of joy. The ultimate goal of the retreat is to help the retreatants to discover their hearts – compassion towards themselves and others.
