Imagine — waking up to a gentle breeze through the treetops of the 100 year old monkey pod trees outside, you notice the iridescent green gecko outside your window, step out on your balcony and see the ocean. You have some fruit, something to drink while you let this Place of Paradise, sacred to the ancient Hawaiians, and a place of refuge left on the planet for our healing, fill you with relaxation, peace, enjoyment…And a shiver of comfort kisses you from inside, your mind stops, and your inner and outer worlds melt and merge into pure en-join-ment.
This is what the ‘Place of Refuge’ Sanctuary for Souls Healing Retreat is all about. We as humans have come to believe through the centuries in the idea that growth, healing, progress has to be painful. This is not necessarily so. Real progress, real healing, real spiritual awakening occurs when we finally let go and allow our natural energies to heal us. Like an air bubble trapped under water finally set free to rise to the surface.
How many stories have you heard of people finally reaching their ‘breaking point’ and giving up. And in that giving up somehow a whole new life has emerged for them? We don’t need to reach these crises (cries for ‘ease’), these emergencies (emerge-and-sees) in order for us to finally let go and to grow. There is an easier way. If we feel and believe through our collective programming that we need to ‘struggle’, ‘work hard’, that it has to be ‘no pain, no gain’ then so it is…for us. But not for Masters, not for God, not for awake beings.
The Universe grows through ease, through enjoyment, through pleasure. The Origin of the Uni-Verse was a pleasurable ‘Big Bang’ for Source-God-Consciousness. Trees, grass, volcanoes, star-suns all propagate and grow themselves through pleasure, through ease, through exploration of something new. It is our human minds, thought patterns and ideas that have created the current ‘diffi-cult’ situation on Earth. And therefore through new ideas and thought patterns we can un-create, dissolve these seeming ‘difficulties’ we are faced with and allow in an easier model for life on Earth.
“It’s in our Pleasure we find the true Treasure, (‘No Pain, No Gain’ is the long, slow road)”
This healing retreat is dedicated to those who are ready to let back in this Original Plan for Earth of ease, play, enjoyment, comfort, pleasure as a Divine roadway to true Awakening and let it be a conscious service to the Human Race. Isn’t it time we started to be done with struggle? Have you had enough stress & worry yet? Are we ready to let go and let Love?
There was a time on Earth, in the Land of Pan(gea) where we lived in ‘Paradise’. All cultures creation stories on the planet speak of this original time of ease, plenty, freedom, peace, enjoyment. There are still a few places on earth that have been kept by God-Goddess-Source as ‘Sacred Sanctuaries’ as a reminder of what the original Earth experience was like. Think of these as places on earth where the energies of the original Paradise still touches down on earth, physically. These are places kept in order to be a ‘wake up call’ for us in order to remind us of the real Original Plan for Earth.
Pu’uhonua o Honaunau ‘The place of Refuge’ in Hawaii that we will be visiting and meeting with dolphins is one of those places.
In three separate visits to this place in the last few years, every time I am imbued, amazed, infused, filled, awe struck by the palpable, almost physical energy of Peace, power, pleasure, ease that exists in this place. The mind relaxes, the body finally truly exhales and settles down, the spirit starts re-membering. It is no accident that this place has been preserved. This place was a ‘sanctuary’ for the ancient Hawaiians. Anyone breaking ‘kapu’ (taboo) was granted forgiveness at this place through cleansing rituals by the Kahuna priests if they could reach this sanctified, holy ground. No blood was ever allowed to be spilled on this sanctuary. It was revered and honored by everyone in the ancient Hawaiian culture.
With our visits to this place, through meditation, come-union, and peaceful allowing, including a full moon walk, we will not only be re-awakening this powerful presence of Peace and pleasure in us personally, in our very cells, but we will also automatically be helping to anchor this Original Plan of living back onto the planet itself.
The ‘Sanctuary for Souls’ Course
We will be using some of the following easy, enjoyable, simple, proven and true exercises used by Masters and Teachers over the centuries–
These are enjoyable, simple to learn ways of allowing in abundance, pleasure, enjoyment that you will be able to easily incorporate into your life after the retreat. You will come away from the course with a seed that will grow into a permanent shift-awakening for you.
Calming the Mind – In this exercise which usually turns into fun and laughter, we will be letting our thoughts and our mindtalk free so that they can be released. It’s like we are taking the lid off a pressure cooker and allowing it to relax and find it’s own level. After a while of using this method we find our thoughts and minds coming to rest in a peaceful, balanced, harmonious place. Many people find that with just this one exercise they have a major shift in feeling more peaceful, joyful and powerfully centered.
Inner Body Awakening – An enjoyable, easy and comforting method for becoming more aware of our Inner Body. The Inner Body also known as the Etheric Body is an exact duplicate of our ideal physical body. This Etheric Body is what leaves our physical bodies when we have an out of body experience or pass on to our next existance. The Inner Body is what creates, feeds, and heals our physical bodies. Contacting and truly feeling and inhabiting this Inner Body assists in us being comfortable in and being able to relax & enjoy our bodies. People have reported whole new relationships and healings with their bodies by doing just this simple method.
Physical Energy Awakening – As most of us know nowadays, our bodies end up carrying most of our stress and there is gathering evidence that almost all of our dis-eases are rooted in stressing our bodies. The body knows innately how to release these stuck, held back, pent up energies. Animals do this freely, easily and automatically. Watch how dogs will shake their heads and bodies to feel better and more aligned. See how the ducks flap their wings to release pent up energy and then settle down, see how cats stretch and ‘vibrate’ their bodies filling themselves with energy, see how birds ‘puff’ their feathers out and re-energize themselves etc.
This exercise is designed to let our bodies naturally and easily realign themselves, and free themselves of any unwanted, stuck or uncomfortable energies they’ve been carrying. This is where we help the Inner Body-Etheric Body to re-integrate and connect with our physical bodies.
Simple Connected Breathing – ‘The Breath of Life’ has been called Prana by the Hindus, ki by the Japanese, Chi by the Chinese, Ruahk by the Greeks. This is the Living Soul Breath Word of God. With this method we connect with and allow the Life Force to re-fill us, re-set our etheric, mental, emotional and physical bodies. Amazing clearings, awakenings, rejuvenations occur during this simple exercise.
Laughter Yoga -Pure Laughter & Merriment – We have all heard it said that– “Laughter is the best medicine.”
Dr. Bernie Siegel cured his cancer using only laughter by watching funny movies.
There are hundreds of cases of laughter healing supposedly terminally ill patients.
With this enjoyable technique we let laughter wash over and through us…usually there are a few people who have truly tearspilling, gut busting healing laughter occur during this playful exercise.
Love – The “My Cup Runneth Over” Exercise- God is Love, The Power of Love is the strongest power in the Universe, though often in the current model of civilization on Earth we have come to believe that Mind and thinking are more powerful.
In this exercise we will activate the Energy of Love into our hearts, minds and bodies in a strong physical way. Besides being one of the most enjoyable feelings and energy, Love also heals us on every level.
And The Best for Last!
We will be learning one of the simplest methods on the planet, a method incorporating Jesus’s forgiveness, the empty mind techniques of the Buddha & Zen masters and the Bhakta heart devotion of ancient India…all in one simple technique the ancient Hawaiians discovered…called:
