Why an immersive retreat experience?

Beth and I are healers. We are experts in our own healing. And we believe and witness healing as the responsibility for each one of us to own.

I can’t heal you, and I can’t do the healing for you, but I can teach you how to heal yourself. Healing is an innate quality that resides in the calm - the space beyond an overactive nervous system. Healing is not a priority when we are activated in the fight or flight response, safety is the priority. And healing happens once we have landed in a safe environment to feel, breathe and steep in restful awareness.

I will never have enough information about you to know if you should break up with your partner, or which job you should pursue, or what you passion or purpose in life is, or what city you should move to, etc. What I can do is hold space for you while you sit with the discomfort of uncertainty and learn to listen to the peace and presence within.

Your intuition, inner-guru and higher power resides in the space behind your mindchatter - it’s always there. It’s quiet and subtle and does not scream for attention. It does not respond to fear or control tactics and it can not be manipulated. It is a pure and a soft knowing. It is comfort in discomfort. It is contentment with discontentment. It is acceptance and peace within the eye of the storm. The more we learn to slow down, be in awe of what is happening inside our body, witness the fluctuations of the mind, and hold space for the silent pulse between breath and thoughts, the stronger our ability to heal becomes.

Do the inner work and watch the world around you change!

“It is not fear that stops you from doing the brave and true thing in your daily life. Rather, the problem is avoidance. You want to feel comfortable, so you avoid doing or saying the thing that will evoke fear and other difficult emotions. Avoidance will make you feel less vulnerable in the short run, but it will never make you less afraid.”

Harriet Lerner, The Dance of Fear
