I’m heading to Argentina and then Brasil on December 19th, and I’ll be a bit sad to go, but before I do, we’re hosting one more weekend retreat on the weekend of December 9-11.
From the evening of Friday, December 9th to the evening of Sunday, December 11th, we’ll be hosting another retreat at Rachael’s place. This one is also called To Honor A Loved One, and it’s for anyone who has been experiencing conflict, distance or suffering with someone special in your life. It’s quite similar to the When Truth Meets Desire retreat. Read the 2-page brochure here, and feel free to pass it on!
To register, please call Rachael at 66515544. And add your name to the guest list on Facebook, here. Thank you!
Below is a comment from a young Brasilian woman who attended this same retreat in Brasil earlier this year:
(translated from Portuguese)
I became to know meditation and conscious breathing Rebirthing work few years ago and had amazing spiritual experiences, starting in my life the path of self-knowledge. But after a lot of work, still something was very confused in my mind in my relationship with the male figure. I never wanted to work on my relationship with my dad because I still felt insecure about that, and I thought that I was already growing for sure and I was healing there too.
I knew there was a lot of heartache, which began from childhood and worsened during adolescence, and the difficult divorce of my parents, when I took my mother’s side. I felt that despite my deep love for my father, I could not bring that love to our relationship or express it. It always seemed that the pain, resentment and sadness were bigger than the feeling of affection and admiration. Inside myself, I was suffering because of that, but was feeling unable to change it.
I allowed Michael Skye to support me, as I felt from him the safety and lovingness to support me to take a step which has always been difficult – to work on the figure of my father in front of others. And this was a step higher than I thought. Now I feel stronger, safer and most beloved not only because I can express my affection without the weight of resentment but also because I can receive all the love that was always there for me. Suddenly within me all the feelings that blocked the possibility of feeling the blessing and happiness of my relationship fell apart. The feeling I have is freedom and courage to be myself, understanding who is the other and confidence to open my heart to give and receive love.
