Awareness Intensive and Satori
Here you find retreats that allow you to access dimensions beyond the mind and directly experience yourself and reality.
the Awareness Intensive (three days) and Satori 9seven days) are a lunge into the ultimate reality, a taste of enlightenment, an alignment of inner and outer beyond any idea of separation.
It is a state of joy, beauty and easiness and the recognition of it as our natural state. It is a sip of True Nature that finally quenches our thirst and gives sense to our searching.
For centuries spiritual seekers asked themselves: Who am I? What is Life? What is Love? What is Freedom? These, and few more, we call “existential questions”. For centuries seekers contemplated in isolation and for long years until, in the middle of the sixties, a zen master decided to experiment and see what would happen if two people would sit facing each other asking those questions and answering in turn. The result was miraculous: the process of introspection became incredibly more potent and faster as to the question was added the communication.
The technique we use in these retreats is the most radical and efficient to come to know yourself directly, beyond concepts, beliefs, opinions, familial, social and religious conditioning.
If you are ready to look within and face your “original face”, these retreats are for you.
