Living and Loving As Boundless Awareness, 20 – 27 July 2018, from €450 (Kissos Campus)
A Week of Non-duality Meetings
In addition to being great fun in a gorgeous setting, this retreat will consist of a rare opportunity to sit together in an intimate space of deep-rooted Presence that involves a profound inquiry into whatever appears to be blocking or veiling your inherent mental, emotional, and somatic freedom. Although Michael’s approach is deeply rooted in radical non-duality, various schools of Buddhism (particularly Zen), and Jungian psychology, you can have any spiritual or therapeutic affiliation in order to engage in this work with him.
In this retreat, Michael will offer a fresh, simple approach to the evolution of consciousness that honors both the non-evolutionary and the evolutionary paths of spiritual awakening. Using a variety of modalities and drawing both from the world’s wisdom traditions and also from mythology, classic literature, music, and visual art, we’ll will spend the week awakening to, embodying, and integrating the sacred reality of boundless, loving Awareness.
Throughout the week, we’ll focus on the following broad topics:
- Radical awakening to non-dual Awareness
- Embodiment and somatic intelligence
- Jungian shadow integration
- Simple meditation
- Love, sensitivity and emotional intelligence
- Aesthetic appreciation and creative expression
- Integration of wisdom and devotion
Throughout the retreat, you will discover that when the sense of separation falls away, life is revealed to be what it always was: pure radiation from a dimensionless source of infinite Intelligence and boundless Love. Then the body becomes what it was meant to be: pure, vibrant, flowing aliveness—undivided, undefended sensitivity, innocence, love, affection, and intimacy. Upon awakening, the body-mind becomes the faithful servant of the boundless Heart of Loving Awareness.
This retreat will emphasize friendship and community, but private sessions will also be available to those who wish to meet with Michael one-on-one.
The last retreat there was a huge success, and we look forward to returning this summer. You can read a short article that Michael wrote about last summer’s retreat by clicking here:
One retreat participant from Austria, Gabrielle Haslauer, had this to say about last year’s retreat: “If you ever have the chance to join Michael A. Rodriguez in his workshops–go for it! I had the big chance to join him this summer in his non-duality workshop at Kalikalos Holistic Centre, and this was a great milestone on my pathless path to my essence.”
