Transcending the Personal

A five day retreat in Spain.
8th – 12th June 2017

Only one thing stands in the way of living a mentally and spiritually healthy life filled with peace, love and wisdom: the personal ego and the fear it breeds. It is behind all our problems, difficulties and issues and is usually the most difficult thing we bump up against in our lives. No matter how much we understand the Three Principles it seems to rear its head again and again, and we keep getting tricked. The purpose of this retreat is to explore how to get it out of our way, and to see what happens to us when we are able to transcend it.

However, because consciousness makes the ego and fear look and feel so real, it is not so easy to extract ourselves from the “reality” of it or to see our way through it. This takes deeper exploration. The answer does not lie in trying to change our thinking, or in “figuring out”, or in getting to the root of where it comes from, or in stating the mantra, “There is no ‘I’”; the answer lies in truly transcending it. But what does transcending the personal really mean?  And how can we help it happen, when it does look and feel so real? This is the direction our exploration will take in our first retreat.

For some of us it will be enough to see it more deeply for ourselves. For practitioners who attend we will also explore how transcending the personal impacts the effectiveness of our work with others.

Helping Others Transcend the Personal

A 5 day retreat in Spain
27th – 31st October 2017

It is one thing (and necessary) to understand how we, ourselves, can transcend the personal. It is another thing to help others see it for themselves, as well. Some of us work with others formally as coaches, counselors, therapists or teachers. Others would love to be able to help their loved ones, friends or those with whom they work to transcend the ego and fear as well. The purpose of this retreat is to gain an understanding of how to help others to transcend the personal.

As usual, this retreat will contain a combination of talks, small group discussions, deep listening pairs and more, combined with the mind relaxing in a beautiful, safe, fun setting.

Who is it for?

Anybody who already has some understanding of the Three Principles and who would like to gain the benefits listed below.

Retreat Description

This Retreat will generally follow the format of the “Cultivating the Art of Working Effectively with Others One-on-One,” which was conducted in Albir last year. Helping others to transcend the personal is also an art (as opposed to a skill) that needs to be cultivated.
Helping others to transcend personal ego and fear adds a new and different dimension to merely seeing how it works within ourselves. It is easy to flounder in attempting to help others see this within themselves. Sometimes we don’t know which way to turn. Sometimes we have to dip in and out of helping people to look in the direction of what the ego is doing to them and pointing in the direction of spiritual transcendence. This is where the “art” comes in. No matter how good we are at helping others we can all get even better.
This Retreat will help people become even better grounded in transcending the personal
