Hosted by Ami Chen Coaching, with faculty: Gabriela Maldonado-Montano and special guest volunteers from the UK Jenny Anderson of Innate Well-Being, and Dave Elleray of Freedom Thinking
This retreat/seminar includes three days at a beautiful, private estate in Santa Ynez, California (lodging is on your own). We gather in the hilly wine country of the Central Coast, a gorgeous, rural setting--mid-way between San Francisco and L.A.--to learn simple principles of unconditional well-being; and how Thought works to either obscure, or release this well-being and inner freedom.
Topics will vary according to needs of group, but will include:
~A foundational and "Principles-based" understanding for human psychological and spiritual functioning. The simplest paradigm for Truth.
~Moving from the "Personal" (as in "taking it personally") to the Impersonal, so that we move through life with less suffering and more compassion and core peace.
~The unique experience and sharing of four presenters (see below) whose work spans the globe, from Spain and South America to South Africa and Nepal, as well as the Mississippi Delta, the Hawaiian Islands, and inner city communities of the United States. The speakers have worked in settings from jails and juvenile hall to community agencies and government to Fortune 500 companies.
~Along with covering the fundamentals of the Principles, we welcome participants, via Q and A, to bring their honest issues, questions and concerns (as well as insights!) to the group. Format includes lecture, Q and A, dialogue and reflective exercises. Breaks between sessions will allow for quiet contemplation. Group potluck gathering on Saturday evening.
