Who or what are you, when your mind is free and at rest?
In this week of Self Enquiry, we’ll engage in honest, intensive Inquiry using The Work of Byron Katie and some Inner Child Dialogue to identify, understand, and question beliefs you may have around relationships, family and friends, parents and children, body issues, others’ behaviour, health and disease, food, death, survival, earth issues, whatever disturbs, saddens and angers you in your life and in the world.
Clear, cleanse, relax, refresh and dive deep in our intensive, fun, and profound work and play together.
You’ve heard of Mindfulness – this is where you’ll find it. This is where you realize that what you were looking for is to be found right here, right now. I can practically guarantee you’ll go home with more love in your heart.
In this mythic location you may find you are simply joy personified, no longer separated by fear, judgments, or projections, and free to unfold in the presence of the love that you truly are. The natural world is our mother and teacher, as we take the inner journey to our truth.
The root cause of suffering is identification with our thoughts. Byron Katie’s Work cuts through the illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being. Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now.
4 Questions and a Turnaround
We‘ll be working singly, in pairs, and in the group, creating an atmosphere of support, intimacy, and deep spaciousness.
And if you think you have nothing to work on, the sharing of community tasks—cooking together, watering the garden, clearing up—provides plenty of stuff for the mind to chew on: “he should do more, I’m too tired, it’s not fair, they should be quiet”…ad infinitum.
Honest, kind, communication comes naturally when you practise conscious Inquiry, and back home, whenever stress arises, you’ll have a superb tool for living.
Doing The Work can bring laughter and tears as you begin to discover more of your true being. It can become a foundation for living in a more conscious and loving awareness of yourself and your world and a gift you’ll want to share. It is as simple and as powerful as Four Questions and a Turnaround.
This week is equally valuable for those new to, or familiar with, The Work of Byron Katie.
We‘ll have plenty of leisure time in the afternoons for walking in the lovely wooded hills, visiting local villages, playing on the white beaches and in the pristine Aegean, or simply resting, and in the evening a meditation, circle, or individual sessions complete the day. There‘ll be periods of solitude and silence throughout the week.
