In order to fully embrace our physical existence we have to come to terms with the duality that allows us to have experiences in a time-bound body of flesh and blood.
Not until we fall in love with the two polar opposites of our manifestation – and accept both the pleasure and the pain that the identification with them bring – can we become our own best friend and will we experience the bliss of being.
From this state we can also recognise the agonies and ecstasies of the worldly game as a reflection of ourselves – which ultimately is the end of suffering.
This retreat is about falling in love with who we have become as a ‘separated self’ and about remembering who/what it is that chose to embark on the earthly journey and play this exciting game…
