Join us for a 7 day transformative journey into the heart of human experience, 

where we explore the intricate dance of Money, Desire, and Power. 

In this immersive retreat, we will playfully delve deep into the realms of these often-taboo subjects, using meditation, movement and dyads to catalyze profound personal growth and inner alchemy.

Why this Retreat is Important:

In our society, Money, Desire, and Power are often shrouded in shame, secrecy, and misunderstanding. Our work together will be to normalize these themes, explore them in a lighthearted, joyful way and to remove the veils of what makes them so messy. These potent forces influence our lives in profound ways, whether we acknowledge it or not. 

What to Expect: 

Self-Discovery and Personal Growth: Exploring these complex aspects of our existence is a journey of self-discovery. It helps us understand our desires, fears, and motivations more deeply, leading to personal growth and a greater sense of self-awareness.

Healing and Liberation: By confronting the challenges of Money, Desire, and Power, we can heal wounds, both personal and societal, that have long been ignored or repressed. This healing process leads to a sense of liberation and freedom.

Improved Relationships: Our relationship with Money, Desire, and Power often spills over into our relationships with others. By gaining clarity and insight into these areas, we can foster healthier connections with partners, family, and colleagues.

Empowerment: As we learn to navigate these powerful forces consciously, we become more empowered to make choices that align with our values and aspirations, rather than being driven by unconscious patterns.

Tools for Transformation:

Meditation: Guided meditation sessions will help us explore the depths of our wishes, fears, and motivations related to Money, Desire, and Power, fostering a sense of inner peace and clarity.

Dyads and Group Discussions: Engage in meaningful conversations and dyadic exercises to explore your feelings, thoughts, and experiences in a safe and supportive environment.

Expert Facilitators: Nishta and Evangelos are skilled in creating a space of trust and authenticity, allowing you to dive deep into your transformative journey.

Community: Connect with a diverse group of like-minded individuals who share the desire for growth, healing, and empowerment.

Creativity & Movement: Through the language of the body and contemplative healing arts projects, we will express and release emotions, reconnecting with our physical selves and breaking down barriers to self-acceptance.
