CONSCIOUS LIVING RETREAT
A contemplation and meditative inquiry retreat
from the Autopoiesis Atelier Series
Facilitated by Autopoetic Ideas Founder Anne Bérubé Ph.D.
"Come spend 5 days tending to the most important relationship, the one with your Self."
Limited to 14 participants
October 16th-20th, 2013
1212 Woodville Rd.
RR #3, Newport, NS
The program includes:
- Daily interactive seminars
- Small group conversations
- Yoga and Breath work
- Mantra meditations
- Guided meditations
- Shadow Work
This 5-day intensive is designed to deepen and expand your personal practice. It is not an introductory course but a powerful and experiential process that will provide on going contexts to apply presence and awareness as a way of Being, moment to moment. Rich in invitations and opportunities for acceleration, the experience will support as well as expand your own healing and transformation.
Using breath, attention and intention, as well as experiential exercises to bring into the light the underlying causes of our unconscious and limiting beliefs, values, behaviors, and choices, we will use soul enquiry to expand our inner knowing and dive into our inner peace. With meditation and awareness technics, as well as writing and movement, we will quiet the mind chatter, authentically connect with the information stored in the body’s nervous systems, and come to remember the essence of who we really are.
We start with these premises:
-Who I really am is permanent. The expressions of who I am are impermanent.
-My body is an information (energy) processor and the Heart’s ability to process the information is greater than the brain.
-Every moment, I have a choice to engage the past or a possible future
-Breath is the propeller for transformation, healing and bliss.
Most of us do not have the opportunity take the time to deeply inquire and rest in awareness for an extended period of time. It is a gift to offer our self: uninterrupted presence, intimately fostering and deepening the most important relationship in our life: the one with our true inner self.
The length of the program allows you to step out of your habitual patterns, immerse yourself in an organic routine, and get at those unconscious patterns you have not been able to shake. After 5 days, your body has experienced a new, expansive, and intuitive way of being, aligned with your soul’s purpose. It is easier to integrate and incorporate what we have learned when we have shifted kinaesthetically.
So maybe you have experienced yoga, meditation, or inner work before. You have made resolutions for a healthier, happier, more inspired and peaceful life. Yet, you find yourself at a crossroad on your path, maybe with a lost of passion and joy for what you do, unable to manage stress like you use to.
Or maybe you are feeling the need for a map to point the way back inwards, to your center, your affluence, your Dharma, your zone, your creative resourceful self.
This powerful retreat will bring you back to your inner Knowing and propel you forward on your path with joy and passion and a renewed sense of purpose!
