Healing Journey – The Power of Connection & Nature | Cinque Terre | Italy | 6 days
A Discovery Journey diving into our Conditionings, Feelings, Emotions and Beliefs to regain our liveliness and reconnect with our Body, True Nature & Inner Guidance in a Safe Space full of Connection, Trust and Belonging where we communicate and relate differently.
Theme & Topic
The essence of our longing is connection—to ourselves, to others, and to the Source. By embracing humility, curiosity, and compassion, we can nurture genuine connections, recognizing and validating others without seeking to change them. Yet, many times, our interactions are driven by our own fears and insecurities, leading to selfish behavior and unintentional disconnection. Reconnecting with our emotions and bodies allows us to break free from this cycle, fostering the genuine connections we desire, rooted in love, inner abundance, and unconditional giving.
Nature is the place where our nervous systems can naturally calm down. After spending some time out in beautiful spots our minds come to rest. It is the environment where we can feel at ease and be ourselves. Nature doesn’t have any expectations and accepts us the way we are. Therefore it is the ideal setting for the purpose of this event.
The Spirit of the “Healing Journey”
The Spirit we want to give life to on this retreat is to allow a safe space to happen where trust, vulnerability and honesty can arise so that we feel completely held and safe in the group. Like that our nervous system can calm down and start its “Healing Journey” on its own. Our defence, coping and survival mechanisms can come to rest and our true nature and everything we needed to suppress can surface and show itself and is met with understanding, curiosity, kindness, respect and compassion and is welcome, acknowledged and validated without wanting to change anything about it. A space where we can safely be ourselves without anybody trying to change us or make unhelpful comments. An environment we all long for and might not have experienced ever.
All the suffering and misery we create in the world is because in our early days we needed to suppress our feelings and parts of our personality because they were not welcome and our environment didn’t know how to deal with them. In that process we also suppressed our aliveness and started functioning and coping with our inner distress. And then we allowed the outside world to lure us into the belief that we can substitute the connection to those feeling and personality parts and fill our inner void thus created with consumption, success, money, power, fame, distraction, entertainment, relationships, having fun, sex and all kinds of addictions which leads to all the conflicts, wars and destruction we see in the world because it is never enough.
We disconnected from ourselves, our true nature, our inner guidance and also from our gifts and talents and are looking for a substitute in the outside world. The Spirit of this event is to offer the possibility to reconnect to those feelings and personality parts so that we can stop the search in the outside world.
Mindset & Attitude
It is very helpful to embark on this Discovery Journey with a clear intention and the willingness to try to be as open, vulnerable and honest as possible because that by itself is pure magic and creates a great opening. To visualize the whole event as a magical world where miracles can happen and to be open for all possibilities. The belief by itself can move mountains. It is also helpful to let go of all expectations because when we are focussed on a specific outcome we might overlook the presents the Universe has in store for us which might not be what we want but what we need.
What we will do
We will spend 6 days full of Connection, Light-heartedness, Ease, Adventure and Magic in the Cinque Terre area in Liguria, Italy. We will be walking in beautiful spots in nature which includes visiting the 5 Cinque Terre villages, do different kinds of activities to build trust and connection among all the participants so that the whole event can become a life changing experience. We will prepare the soil to be fertile ground for the seeds we want to plant. We will practice how to communicate and meet the vulnerability, honesty and openness of the others with understanding, humility, curiosity and compassion so that everybody can feel safe and sure that the groups reactions are helpful and supportive. Every participant will get to know every other participant to be really sure about their attitude towards each other and also the possible triggers. Especially the triggers have an enormous healing potential if they are treated self-responsibly without accusing and blaming. There will be spaces for vulnerability, honesty and challenges to leave our comfort zone but all activities are voluntary and everybody is invited to care for themselves. We will embark on a discovery journey into the mysterious realm of our conditionings, feelings, emotions and beliefs.
Amanita Muscaria is the Fly Agaric Mushroom. Yes the red one with the white dots. It has been said to be highly poisonous but that couldn’t be further from the truth. It has very beneficial qualities like: Reconnecting our neural networks, reducing the influence of the reptilian brain (brain stem) by 25 and therefore reducing fear, fight, flight and freeze. It is also very useful in cases of stress and depression and can bring great relief. It is supposed to be taken as a micro dose of 0,3 gram every morning and evening. It has no tripping effect in such a small portion.
We will stay on a beautiful camping site in a foresty area under trees which we will most probably have completely on our own.
