“Those Who Know True Love, Knows its Power to Heal Anything.”
~ Madeleine Marentette

The experience of being alive, enveloped in the essence of love, given from the outside in or from the inside out, is our first encounter with the greatest gift we possess. This irreplaceable attribute assures us a place of rest, security and peace. It is the source of our infinite imagination, dreams, passions and destiny. It is the catalyst to creating beauty and peace in our lives and in our world.

As we grow and move through life's challenges we are each influenced and pulled away by contra-conditioning, taking advantage of our youth and vulnerabilities. Non-judgement, acceptance and kindness becomes replaced with anxiousness, criticism and fear. Eventually we can shut down our love for others, ourselves, and for life. And it is our responsibility to find our way back one day.

This retreat will take us on a journey through our human conditioning, and our return to our innate state of natural love. We find our way back to our centre through understanding the new research and findings between the relationship of thought and feelings. We will travel through past, present and future, remember the power of forgiveness and open ourselves up to new realizations, healing and new possibilities.

Open up and become one with your heart once again, the one who loves life unconditionally and knows its power to heal anything. Miracles happen through a loving heart. We only need to remember that we are capable of loving for no reason but for life itself. Each day is a new opportunity for us to explore our inner most chamber, the heart. And this, the most exquisite gift of the human-soul experience. 

In addition to your all-inclusive package, you are invited to take part in the following extras, a series of special workshops designed for this theme week:

  1. The Astonishing Intelligence of the Heart
