I am seriously considering going to this one. The agenda looks really good and the cost is very reasonable for a 3 day retreat. Plus it is hosted by the wonderful Mike George whom I have a lot of respect for. Take a look:
Invitation to a Weekend Retreat
A Work in Progress!
Life is a process not a result, a journey not a destination, a work in continuous progress. It’s easy to spend too much time focussing on outcomes and striving for achievement, and thereby miss the beauty and the magic of the journey, not to mention the lessons along the way.
We each create our own journey much as a painter paints her painting and a composer refines his symphony. Everyone has a song in their heart and everyone has a canvas called the ‘mind’ on which they will create the panorama of their life. Have you found your song and if so how does it sound? Have you started on your canvas and if so how does it look?
You are warmly invited to join one of the weekend Self Awareness Retreats which offers the gifts of insight and understanding, meditation and silence, the company of fellow creators and a chance to relax and look at yourself and life very differently.
To help you sustain your ‘creative process’, and whatever inner work you initiate during the weekend retreat, you will receive a weekly refresher by email for 18 weeks.
There is much more information on the website– ie full costs and itinerary. Cost-wise, I think £175 for 3 days and accommodation is very reasonable.
If you cannot make this one, you can join the mailing list and get information on future events. Send your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Brahma Kumaris do offer great workshops that are around subjects that many people need some help in.
Being a charity, they are heavily reliant on donations so if you attend an event, please give generously so that they can continue their good work and reach out to many others.
This Self Esteem workshop will help you:
Learn simple techniques to help create sustainable self-worth and enjoy more positive and healthy relationships, with ourselves and others.
Two part seminar from 2pm to 530pm.
- Part 1 Saturday 20th June
- Part 2 Saturday 27th June
If you know anyone who can benefit, please forward this post on. Unfortunately there are too many people who really suffer from a lack of self esteem and it affects their lives hugely. This is a great chance to start looking into it. Face it and try to deal with it in order to move on and be more confident and happier in yourself.
DUE TO LIMITED SPACES, ADVANCED BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT AT www.globalretreatcentre.org/retreats
I had not heard of Mike George until I went to a talk he gave recently, organised by the Brahma Kumaris. I have since then spoken to quite a few people who also admire his work so I have decided to dedicate this post to Mike.
The talk was about how we need to live in the present, not the past and not planning the future…the now. I was very impressed with his words and wisdom and gained a lot from that talk. Mike is a successful Author, public speaker and he runs Awareness retreats.
Mike has a great website with lots of free information and advice on how to be free and live your live well. I subscribe to his mailing list and get some really useful emails through. 5000 people already subscribe. If you want to, click here. Well worth it. Lots of good information on there. And it’s all free.
Mike’s Books include titles such as:
I haven’t read any of his books yet but judging by what I thought of him when I met him and after reading his newsletters, I would certainly not hesitate to recommend his work.
