In these three days, in a structured and holding environment, in the middle of the beautiful nature, you´ll have a chance for a direct, intimate experience of yourself and others. A certain detox of the ´head and heart’, is a return to our own inner home, and grow into our relationships to the outside world, which include:
– healthy and balanced communication with others
– fresh and creative thinking
– authenticity in acting from the present moment
– the art of listening
– focus and deal with demanding situations
– an experience of inner assurance not dependent on the acceptance from the
– new outlook at personal history and discovery of resources and new
Using ’self-inquiry‘ and zen-koan, this process ignites your own and individual experience of yourselves, outside of concepts and ideas. We finally have a living experience of the freshness of the present moment in which all that we are sits in its place, our whole system changes its former way of functioning.
Discovering ourselves in a different light, we see our lives in a new perspective.
We connect with inner clarity and strength, and confidence in our own potential grows.
This process can bring experiences and understandings that bring about radical change.
