Autumn Retreat

THEME:
Balance Between Being and Doing
COST:
$415   (Deposit: $100)


Our Friend says:
Most commonly life becomes out of balance through over-activity, through over-committing oneself to involvement in social relationships, in work effort, to the point where the inner life is given a back seat rather than always being in the driver’s seat.

 

When you are in alignment, when your mind and your feelings and your physical being and your Soul are all working as one energetic system, then you will feel the fullness of being one with the Divine Being. When any of those aspects of yourself are out of alignment then it is like mismatched cogs on a wheel. You cannot meet, you cannot merge with the Divine, because your mind is worrying about whatever it is that is out of balance. Or your body is so tired that you are needing rest before you can open yourself to a conscious state of unity. Or emotionally you are so distressed or frightened or angry or whatever the emotional lack of balance may be about, that you do not have the receptivity that you need.
When you are in alignment then your heart is open, your mind is open, and your body is relaxed and alive and energised. From that state of balance and well being it is a very simple step to merge with the One. That is the nature of the Divine – peace, love, joy, ease … balance.

Our Friend will guide us in exploring what we need to restore and maintain greater balance in our lives whatever the external or internal challenges we may be facing.
