THE WAY OF COMPASSION - Awakening to the Alchemical Power of Meditation

11 - 16 October 2020

What it is

This retreat is presented in partnership with SAND (Science and Non-Duality) and Mandali Retreat Centre.

Our everyday life challenges us with inner and outer conflicts, that can be met from a space of authentic openness and freedom. This space is pure consciousness, the same one that lives through every being and creates life itself.
The retreat will guide participants to the discovery of our essential nature that lies behind the inner dialogue of the mind and introduces to the possibility of transforming through compassion the limiting structures of the ego. By awakening to our true essence we will have a new perspective on ourselves and the world around us, more loving and inclusive.


Life itself is a call towards the Self. Our daily life becomes the path towards liberation. Though manifestation is only an illusion, it is also an opportunity for awakening, an invitation to rediscover the Self at the center of our own humanity. In this sense, overcoming fear and illusion is to awaken to the extraordinary beauty of the moment, and to become a true embodiment of Consciousness itself in human form.

Life itself invites you to go through all those fears that seem to trap you into the human body and into the duration of a lifetime. From the conscious perception of the Immobility of your Being, these contractions, which are the same energy we call fear, are revealed as your own joy which is now free to radiate through form.

At the center of the egoic contraction there is only pure Emptiness, something that is mistakenly conceived as fragile and vulnerable. But it is actually Openness itself, only apparently covered by the illusion of being a someone.

From this direct perception, Life appears as an embodiment of the Absolute, and a precious opportunity to experience the Self consciously. As a Creator who experiences itself through its own creation.
