Date: to come

Timeless Ocean, Winds of Change, Warm Personal Spaces

This retreat with Akhail (Nishant) and Malik John is an invitation to go deeper than the waves, wider than the winds, into places of Remembering, Reflecting, and Recognizing the true light of your Being.

Here you can re-friend your Timeless Soul, make open hearted inquiries into your personal winds of change. Here you will learn how to connect with the resources which hold clarity and guidance for the way ahead.

Along the way you will be gently taken into the light-heartedness of Presence, a bath in the world beyond seriousness. This can put lightness into the way you walk, a dancing spirit back in your heart, and give you the spaciousness of your big Mind. Together, these three will be known as Friends, your guidance system for releasing past conditioning and re-connecting with the true calling of these new times.

We will stay in a renovated school – Folkshegeskoalle – built in the dunes and completely surrounded by forest. Here your inner journeys will be supported by the pine forests, the dance of being on an island in a vast ocean, and the warm invitations of endless beaches and high sand dunes.

The program each day will include re-friending yourself meditations and guidance into the communing that happens between your Presence and the spacious elemental world around you. There will be open times for walks by the sea and reflections with the inner whispers.
