5-Night Guided BioSpiritual Focusing Retreat
Cost: $600. Includes room and three meals per day. (Begins with supper on Sunday and ends with lunch on Friday at noon.)
A BioSpiritual Focusing Directed Retreat, with room for silence, is about presence to self, others, and God. It is a component and pathway to a holistic approach to spiritual growth.
Our bodies are more than physical and biological systems. They are our direct connection to our environment and make our interaction with the entire Universe possible. Our bodies hold the energy of all our life experiences and contain the potential of a life of fullness, authenticity and compassion. In other words, our bodies are our direct link to Spirit.
When you focus from a BioSpiritual perspective, your tap into the inner wisdom held in the body. The “felt-shifts” that may occur in the BioSpiritual flow can be a direct experience of the “grace” of the Divine.
BioSpiritual Focusing is part of a holistic approach to spiritual transformation and conscious living. Through the practice, you may find new ways to think about places in your life where you are stuck. Old patterns and habits can be transformed. New resolve can be discovered around issues related to carrying negative emotions in your body.
The Retreat will guide you to the deepest levels of awareness inside your body. You will have a focusing session each day with your director. Prior BioSpiritual Focusing experience is required.
I have a client who fought cancer for some years. Last week during treatment, I helped him listen to some tears that had leaked from the eye corners. Suddenly he realized how harshly he had pushed against the cancer when what he most needed was to hold in a loving way how his body carried the cancer. In tha***t moment of realization his entire body relaxed and a pain that had been felt in his shoulder for years lessened dramatically. We can now not only achieve very satisfying treatment results, but continue an inner journey that was blocked because of fighting vs holding in a loving way how his body carried the cancer. ~ Massage Therapist, BioSpiritual Focusing practitioner
