Awaken to What is Real
Meditation, Transformation & Healing with Annette Knopp

There is a dimension of our being that remains free and undamaged no matter the conditions in our lives. At this retreat, you will be guided back into the direct knowing of what is already profoundly complete. We will deepen through daily meditation, contemplative dialogues, experiential inquiries as well as somatic practices into the ground of Being.
Supported by a safe community, we will uncover the limiting self-identities and critical inner voices that appear to obscure our natural Being and undermine our lives. You’ll learn effective practices to gently undo and see through habitual misidentifications …and gradually restore your innate capacity to be open, connected and safe in relating with others.
There will be daily Yoga and time to enjoy Blue Spirit’s white-sanded beach, swim in the Ocean or saltwater pool, unwind in the pristine presence of surrounding nature, and to nourish your senses and body with Blue Spirit’s gourmet vegetarian cuisine and beautiful amenities.
Parts of this retreat will be held in silence.
Spaces are limited.
