The quest for self-realization is as old as humanity. While efforts at self improvement, motivation, or even trauma healing can sometimes lead to frustration, nobody who reaches the center of their being through meditation is ever disappointed. This retreat combines trauma healing techniques with awareness practices, and uses them as fuel for a deeper inner search. If you've ever had the sense that there must be something more to life, or to you, then join Jeffrey at Sierra Hot Springs for this three day life-activating experience.
"I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening - a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation." - Peter A. Levine
Quite often what we suffer from as adults started out as something we struggled with in childhood. This is known as developmental trauma. It is the foundational layer of relationship problems, co-dependency, addictions, emotional reactivity, anxiety and depression, and almost every other issue that causes people to suffer. If you're a reasonably healthy adult with the ability to self-reflect, a desire to experience yourself at a more profound level, and a willingness to follow a structure for three days, this retreat may be for you.
Where evergreen forest meets serene meadow, you'll experience the nurturing and healing power of supportive community and beautiful nature. Accommodations are dorm style or private room in the rustic Main Lodge. Three delicious vegetarian meals per day will support meditation and active processes. We'll playfully use principles from Somatic Experiencing®, a Zen dyad communication technique, and active meditations to build attunement and complete survival responses. This can help to resolve early trauma and restore resilience to the nervous system.
Imagine spectacular October colors, cool evenings and mornings, and evergreen scents to invigorate your senses. The hot and warm pools are open 24 hours per day for a quick soak between sessions or late at night under the stars. Absorb your insights from the day, and wash away what no longer serves you. Trauma healing processes release energy in the body which can then be used for an even deeper spiritual search - who are you really, beyond time, and your life story and struggles?

This week-long version of Adversity 2 Awakening can lead to even deeper insights, breakthroughs, and transformation. A longer retreat increases the chances of a direct experience of "Self" beyond trauma. Should this occur, it's like an inner volcano of blissful self-appreciation, gratitude, and creativity that erupts and can change one's life forever. Needless to say, this is a highly transformative and life-activating experience.
This retreat may benefit anyone who is reasonably healthy, willing to be coachable and engage with a beginners mind, and to follow a structure for six days. If you feel your heart beating and already know this retreat is calling you, please join Jeffrey on the Big Island of Hawaii for a mind-blowing experience overlooking the deep blue Pacific right in the heart of whale season.
Accommodations are a luxurious private or shared room with ocean views and comfortable breezes. Three delicious vegetarian meals per day will support meditation and active processes.The Big Island is where fire meets water and new creation is an everyday part of life. In this amazing and secluded venue we'll be supported in being sincere yet non-serious. With tropical palms dancing to ocean breezes and the sound of waves crashing on the cliffs below, we'll playfully engage in principles from Somatic Experiencing®, a Zen dyad communication technique, and active meditations. All are designed to build attunement and complete survival responses. This can help to resolve early trauma and restore resilience to the nervous system.
As healing occurs, energy is released which can be used as fuel for a deeper spiritual search. Similar to a whale coming to the surface and looking us straight in the eye, we may be surprised by an unexpected glimpse of our own mystical "Self".
