August 22-25, 2019 - TRAUMA 2 SATORI; Trauma Healing & Spiritual Growth (Fully Immersive Weekend Retreat) with Jeffrey Tidrick, LMT, SEP

“I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening – a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation”. -Peter Levine

Some people not only bounce back from adversity, they actually rise to a greater appreciation of life as a result of the struggle. This retreat is a fully immersive, highly structured, experiential deep-dive into positive transformation. The intention is to create expanded states of consciousness through dyads (with partners). Within this context, we use powerful questions and koans (questions which cannot be answered with the rational mind) to elicit deep insights and direct experiences of “Self”. The processes are supported by active meditations to help unlock energy and deepen the search. Who are you really?
