Being True Retreat
- Winter Island Retreat South West Islands, Finland
- 3-6 Dec 2009. Sunday-Sunday
- Be Good, Do God, See God
The gates of awareness can open; you can know your purpose and find all the support from the Universe to fulfil your destiny. This is what the Enlightenment path is really about: you being what you truly are in every moment.
This special retreat is about expressing the Truth which you represent and came to this planet to give. This does not involve beliefs nor formulas but rather a gentle uncovering of everything in your life which is untrue. The retreat itself is outwardly mild but inwardly challenging. The inner tension is supplied by the age old conflict between your ego and your true self. Your ego has been winning the battle and you have lost control of your mind. Only rarely does your mind do your bidding and frequently it is at war with your emotions. Instead you mind, body and emotions should be unified around one thing only – your purpose.
The implicit assumptions in the retreat title involve being, doing and perceiving. The gates of awareness can open; you can know your purpose and find all the support from the Universe to fulfil your destiny. This is what the Enlightenment path is really about: you being what you truly are in every moment.
The Island is a beautiful environment off the coast of Finland in the sunniest time of the year. Our retreat centre provides local grown organic (where possible) macrobiotic foods in accordance with Oshana Energy Food principles.
