Saturday Morning:

Workshop - Communication From the Inside Out

In our interactions, when we have our attention on the outer circumstance, or on the other person who we are trying to relate to, and on the outcome of an interaction, we feel uncertain and confused about what to do or say. We spend our time trying to gauge where the other person is at, what they mean, and how they may feel if we say this or that in response. So, we are not really there, but are engaged in trying to get it right, or make things right, get the desired result.

 

This workshop brings the participant back to her own experience, ro her own sense of being authentic in her interactions, and to her own inner wisdom. Learning to listen and speak from the inside out is the source of real satisfaction in any interaction. The results becomes secondary, and the enjoyment of one’s own expression increases exponentially..

Saturday Afternoon:

Keynote #1 - What is Real Beauty?

 

This weekend is about discovering the beauty within, but first I think we have to look and see what we mean by beauty, what our idea of beauty is, and perhaps question what we have been taught and what we agreed with in regards to beauty.  We need to establish a fresh approach to how we look at beauty, and lean toward .seeing with the kind of eyes that are more interested in what uplifts and empowers, than in judgment or conclusion.  

 

In this interactive talk we will look at our own perception of beauty and seek to establish a definition of beauty that is universal. To do that we will need to uncover and perhaps abandon our old ideas and beliefs about beauty. Once we realize that there is a beauty that is beyond the physical, beyond the cultural, and beyond our judgment, a beauty that is based more on the place from where we are looking than, on what the outer vision perceives, we can live our lives looking for real beauty within each person we meet, and within our own selves.

Sunday Morning:

Keynote #2 - Relating From the Real You

 

We often think we have to be better or different than we are in our interactions with others. This is because, well for so many reasons. We don’t want others to think badly of us. We want to impress, show the best side of ourselves. We want to be kind to others, not be hurtful or judgmental. We want to be understood, accepted, and loved for who we are. With all that going on, is it any wonder that we often feel that we’re not really being real in our conversations, and in our relationships.

 

Mostly we’re looking out there to see how to be. And even when we’re looking inside, we’re looking at the outside of the inside. By that I mean we’re looking at our thoughts, our opinions, our emotions and our perceived needs. It’s so complicated.

 

In this talk we’ll ask what it takes to feel natural, at ease, and authentic in our relationships. Rather than trying to be a certain way, we are able to come to a deep resting place inside, back  home you might say, a place that is open, available, and unencumbered.

 

This interactive talk is about seeing, dropping into and relating from the simplest and most direct place in us. Small children know how to do it. And so do we.

2019 Retreat Healers and Private Sessions

Integrating the past Session with Susan Kasper

Often we want to relieve ourselves of our past, stop being run by the patterning and conditioning we have inherited, where we find ourselves repeating what was left to us by our relatives or ancestors. We want to alleviate the ongoing pain of our past memories and experiences, relieve the shame of what we have said or done. We want to be free of it so we aren’t run by it, and trapped in something old, so that we miss the real opportunities of this life


This private session is about accessing the power that we have concerning our pasts.We become clear where to look. We settle into a deeper place inside. And then, from there, we enter into something of the past to learn how to be with it when it arises, what to relate to when we are faced with anything from our past, without ‘trying’ to change ourselves, or the other, and anything that has happened to us or anything we have done.
