This interactive weekend retreat will take you on an exciting journey of self-discovery, supporting you in peeling back the layers of conditioning that have constructed your current identity. Explore the timeless teachings of Rumi, Buddha, Krishnamurti, Jung, and others to learn more about the limitless potential of your unconditioned spirit. During this retreat, we will look into the present state of our mind, heart, body, and spirit, as well as learn about emotional intelligence and mindfulness to help you navigate this ever-changing and complex world in balance and harmony.
