Event Details

Cultivate Steadfastness, Confidence, and Support

Have you ever wondered how to develop steadfastness, persistence and authentic unshakeable confidence? Join us for an exploration into staying on track, even when faced with resistance inside and out.

About the Retreat:
Life often throws us curveballs, challenges our authenticity, and tests our resolve.
For anything to happen on the spiritual path, or in our life, we need persistence, steadfastness and support. These capacities are the result of being in touch with the solidity and support of true will. It is will that helps us overcome obstacles and keep moving in the direction we need to go.

In this retreat, we are continuing our exploration and deepening into this fundamental, indispensable essential quality.

But how do we discover and develop the inner support needed to be true to ourselves?

From participating in this retreat, you may gain an understanding into:

  • How your relationship with your father impacts your sense of inner support
  • How to liberate yourself from the imprint of your relationship with father
  • How self-images associated with a strong will block your connection to true will
  • The difference between true or ‘essential’ will and the ego’s distortion of it
  • What ‘surrender’ is, why it is important, and what blocks it
  • The source of groundedness, realism and certainty on the spiritual path
  • The significance of will for the inner journey

🌈 Who Should Attend:
Individuals seeking to align their lives with who they really are
Anyone looking to build a solid inner support to sustain their journey towards authenticity and self-realization
Anyone curious about joining the ongoing group DAA8

This five-day retreat uses an experiential approach that includes teacher talks and spiritual practices such as open-ended inquiry, meditation and awareness practices.

Teaching sessions generally start with meditation followed by a specific teaching related to the theme of the retreat. You will have the opportunity to deepen your personal exploration through experiential exercises, usually in pairs or triads and sometimes in a small group, before re-joining the large group to process what has emerged in response to the teaching.
