What is Resourcing Retreat about?
A deeply transformative 9-days process through which you are joyfully led step by step into the experience of discovering your true, shinning self; the one who you are looking for all your life, longing for happiness… And then, you are given the invaluable opportunity to make one more step: consciously choose to practice living in contact with your wisdom during the retreat and thrive!
It is a process giving you the opportunity to learn more about your vital energy, your healthy boundaries, healthy discipline, safety, creative vs destructive energy, expression vs suppression, experiencing vs thinking, facing the unexpected, living in the moment, lessons that unfortunately were missed from the education we received during our childhood and puberty.
This is an absolutely joyful retreat that combines meditation techniques, art therapy, primal healing, group psychology, mindfulness, creative challenges and holidays in a harmonious blending that leaves its imprint on you as a life-changing and life-lasting experience.
It is a step by step procedure supporting you to discover and live the extraordinary in an absolutely ordinary life!
Also, at the end of the group you will experientially have created an inner self portrait of your authentic self that you will carry back home as an integrated experience together with an invaluable painted self-portrait as a remembrance of who you truly are.
The program covers all day long (from morning meditations till night events) giving at the same time to you 3 hours every day for sunbathing and swimming on the beach (500 meters from the Institute), integrating the experience of the day in a relaxed way.
The group is led in both English and Greek language.
