Supreme Self-Honoring Retreat
Who would you be if you held and continually moved toward the highest vision of yourself, and held yourself in the highest regard? Who would you be if you couldn't tolerate negative self-talk? If you went to bed every night and woke up every morning without anxiety or self-recrimination? What if you stepped into your own magnificence every morning and held the awareness of the truth of who you are as you moved through your day?
Join Jaya the Trust Coach and other women in this deeply rejuvenating retreat. Increase your self-awareness, talk back to your self-talk, and learn how to structure supreme kindness to yourself in your thinking and living. Supreme Self-Honoring is a powerful way of life that promotes greater peace and joy and the ability to give your gifts to the world more effortlessly. Programming will include stillness and quiet, movement and laughter, inquiry and intention. The Work of Byron Katie, a simple and powerful method of inquiry for questioning your negative thoughts (in this case, limiting or unkind beliefs you carry around about yourself), will be one component of the program--important, but not predominant. There will be several opportunities to go deep inside to meet yourself kindly, and moments of connection and play with other retreat participants. Come with the intention of transformation.
We'll be dancing on both Friday and Saturday nights to bring expressive movement into the mix. (Keep breathing and read on if this terrifies you.) Our leader, dance goddess Laura Beck, brings tremendous intentionality and a whole lot of experience to crafting the dance/expressive movement sessions. These beautifully complement the other work we do and help with integration. They also get us moving physically and accessing different parts of ourselves. Add to this what can only be called Laura's great energy--a steady, compassionate presence and a penchant for easy infusions of humor--and you've got a very compelling addition to the retreat fare. Note: for some, the expressive movement piece brings up some STUFF. Two thoughts: 1)This is all part of the process--and support will be available. I encourage you to meet your discomforts. 2) Let me remind you that you're always invited to find the next best activity for yourself if the one provided feels off to you. This requires no apology and certainly no sense of failure. I encourage you to celebrate honoring yourself instead. (Byron Katie likes to say, "Don't push yourself past your own evolution.") More on and from Laura here.
