who Am I and what do I Value?
We’re so accustomed to identifying ourselves by what we have, what we accomplish, and what others think of us, that we’ve lost touch with our true self.
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom
The journey to find our True Self is not a simple chapter in a book or an article we read in the Sunday paper. When we take time in quiet, beautiful surroundings, with caring companions and space for self-reflection, we can once again begin to hear the forgotten voice of our True Selves.
Ancient Sufi mystics knew there was a different way of living. They understood that by taking time to observe how we live, we can see how we’ve constructed a life that is not aligned with our True Selves, and that we also have the power to change it.
George Gurdjieff incorporated this profound Sufi understanding into what we today call the enneagram. This symbol shows us that we can live freely by recognizing our patterns and, in so, choosing to live differently.
We have the key to living freely…
Using the ancient wisdom contained in the symbol of the enneagram, we will spend seven days learning how to break free of our unconscious patterns and the prejudices that hold us captive, and keep us from making change in our lives.
Under the glowing warmth of the tropical sun we will gather by the ocean to nourish our bodies, our hearts and minds with all the richness that this one great life has to offer.
* A basic understanding of the enneagram is required to receive the full value of this retreat.
