Retreat Itinerary & Outline of Teachings

 Both video and audio recordings available.

Day 1 :

  • Music to Open the Heart and Touch the Soul¬†¬†with¬†Cyndi Krupp¬†
    Music helps us connect and open and allows for deep healing in ways that are miraculous and joyful.  The music in these sessions will come from many genres and eras and at least some of the selections will surprise you.

  • Finding Fulfillment in the Present Moment with¬†Louise Kay
    SESSION 1

     Many of us are conditioned from a young age with the belief that our happiness lies 'out there' somewhere in the future; when I finish school I'll be happy, when I get a job I'll be happy, when I get married I'll be happy, when I have kids I'll be happy, when I have more money I'll be happy, when I get enlightened I'll be happy and so on... and so we live life constantly looking towards the future when we will finally reach this imaginary destination of happiness. The truth is that this conditioning is a fallacy and ultimately happiness and fulfillment can never be found in the future. In fact, they can only ever be found here and now in the present moment. 

    This 90 minute session will begin with a meditation where I will guide you to bring your attention fully present into the now and discover a lasting happiness that is always accessible, regardless of circumstances or experiences. You will then have the opportunity to ask questions or explore whatever may be holding you back from living moment to moment in a state of presence, joy and fulfillment. 

  • Music to Open the Heart and Touch the Soul¬†with¬†Cyndi Krupp¬†¬†

  • The Sacred Dance of Life¬†with¬†Susan Telford
    SESSION 2
    ¬†If concepts like ‚Äúthe joy of being‚ÄĚ, ‚Äúeffortlessness‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúthe pathless path‚ÄĚ feel like a foreign country to you, then I invite you to join me for a gentle exploration of what is here now. Jean Klein told his students, ‚Äú‚ÄúLet life unfold the answer to you‚ÄĚ, but how often do we reject the way life is unfolding, believing it should somehow be different?

    In this session, we will contemplate mystical poetry as a means to ‚Äúuntangle [our] feet‚ÄĚ as Hafiz puts it, seeing what keeps us from effortlessly dancing the sacred dance of life expressing through us.

  • Meet-Up Caf√© with Cyndi Krupp and Rona Marren
    A place to reflect, share and shout from the rooftops that something truly extraordinary is happening that simply cannot be contained. Grab your favorite cuppa something you love and share the vibe and inspiration with other lovers of truth. 

Day 2 :

  • The Grace that Holds Us with¬†Kavi Jezzie Hockaday
    SESSION 3
    When we fully let go into the arms of grace we will know surrender. We may call this grace, peace or joy, yet to even give it a name suggests it is a doing, but in truth it is an undoing of all resistance, and letting go of all holding onto thinking we know how it should be.

    Kavi will offer a poetic exploration of the fragrance of this deepest acceptance and grace.

    He will shine a light on how joy is blocked by emotions like shame, and how over thinking is an impediment to the natural flow of life.

  • Embracing the Radiance Within: Finding Happiness, Trust, and Liberation from Suffering with¬†Maria Felipe
    SESSION 4

    In a world that often pushes us towards constant striving and effort, it's easy to lose sight of the inherent joy of simply being.

    Join me on a journey as we delve into the essence of happiness, trust, and release from suffering.

    Through insightful anecdotes, practical wisdom, and gentle guidance, we'll explore how to tap into the reservoirs of joy that exist within each of us, waiting to be uncovered.

    Together, let's discover the transformative power of resting into the present moment, cultivating trust in ourselves and the universe, and embracing the freedom that comes from letting go of unnecessary burdens.

    It's time to bask in the radiance of our own being and find profound peace in the midst of life's challenges.

"Real rest feels like every cell is thanking you for taking care of you.

It's calm, not full of checklists and chores.

It's simple: not multitasking; not fixing broken things"

Louise Kay 

Louise Kay was born in Lancashire, in the north west of The UK. After graduating from university she worked as an English teacher for 15 years, and during this time began to question the deeper meaning of life. This led her to the path of spirituality, where she found a strong resonance with the teachings of non-duality.

In her early thirties Louise felt a deep call in her heart to visit India, where she experienced a profound spiritual awakening. Shortly afterwards Louise began channeling and travelled around the world sharing this gift for several years. During this time she experienced a deepening and integration of her initial spiritual awakening and as she opened more to this non-dual truth the channeling faded away and a new form of expression revealed itself from deep in her heart.

Louise now holds group events online and around the world. She is passionate about supporting people to live in Presence and Unconditional Love and to express their creative gifts in the world. Explorations often include self-enquiry, the release of limiting beliefs and the integration of unprocessed emotions and energies.
