People are born with the power to love and heal, care and give, achieve and let go. They are also born with the power to bond with their family, friends, community, and society. These qualities afford no room for fear, doubt, anger, grief, loneliness, and hopelessness. And yet, these conditions have undermined people's capacity to love, heal, care, give, achieve, let go, and bond with others. This retreat is for discovering the cause and cure for this affliction and for reclaiming your birthright, which the scriptures summarize in a few words: God created humans in his own image.
Almost all the world’s cultures and traditions - Eastern and Western, ancient and modern - talk about the spiritual dimension of the heart and its role in unleashing the power of love, compassion, willpower, inner protection, and inner guidance. Entering the heart and unleashing its powers is a methodical process, a shortcut to reestablishing your connection with your inner self. According to the ancient masters, this is when all your fears, doubts, questions, and complaints vanish.
