It’s a question humanity has asked since the beginning of time. But in the distraction of life, we can often move further away from the answer than towards it. We lose ourselves and end up identifying with our ego.
But in this surface existence, something is missing. You can feel it, can’t you? The yearning to be more real, true, complete? The desire to find out why you are here?
It is time to wake up.
Satori is both a retreat and an experience. It is a radical change in perspective and a journey into self-inquiry and enlightenment. It is an exploration into your true nature and a process of discovery that helps you look deep into your heart and belly to see and feel what is preventing you from being who you really are.
While Satori is therapeutic, it is not therapy, and it doesn’t have the goal of finding temporary solutions to daily problems, even though it will give you a different perspective on those problems. Satori aims to dissolve the identification with the ego, which is the only cause of problems.
Satori opens and unsettles the mechanism that destroys the present by repeating the past, allowing you to liberate yourself from who you are not – your ego – and create an authentic self-experience. But most of all it is about love, the love you can have for yourself because you are all there is in every moment.
Set in a nourishing environment deep in nature, the 7-day Satori retreat provides the opportunity to detox both physically and emotionally as you begin your journey of self-discovery.
Daily contemplation assignments are designed and structured to supportively take you to the next step in your inner understanding and deepen your awareness. Through an intense, honest, open and compassionate inquiry you will meditate on existential questions like, “What is life? What is love? What is truth? What is beauty? What is surrender?” and others.
Throughout Satori you will uncover how you abandon yourself with each person you are with and how your authentic self is compromised as you adapt to get love, approval, and recognition. No other process reveals so vividly the ‘games’ we continually play; Satori illuminates the way for real liberation.
