Learning how to love and say ‘goodbye’ to people and things
5-day experiential workshop
2 Holorenic Breathing sessions
Held once per year
To love is the most important thing in the world. When one develops love and compassion, every minute is one of happiness. Love is a humbling and powerful force, through which we relate to and create our world. To love is to live, and although we are born knowing this, with time we forget and then yearn for love. This requires us to learn how to love again; how to love beyond the mere desire for a romantic partner.
es reconocer empezando por tus propios límites y virtudes
WHAT IS THE WORKSHOP?
The experience of loving beyond a romantic relationship opens us to a vast transcendental and spiritual dimension. Love is a unifying force that allows the universe to remain unified. Love is more powerful than destructive forces. (If that weren’t the case, the universe would fall into chaos, it wouldn’t exist.) Who doesn’t yearn to experience this powerful force of love?
Fill a space that, in other societies, is encapsulated by rites of passage. These rites always foster an encounter with the depths of being, help to increase freedom, and allow one to fully feel the meaning of life.
Learn to recognise your own limits as well as where you are situated in life and where you should be situated in life (i.e, what is your place in the world?). Accomplishing this a prerequisite step to LEARNING HOW TO TRULY LOVE.
The workshops are run in groups of between 20 to 50 people on our campus devoted to human development, Can Benet Vives, which is 50 kilometres from Barcelona in the heart of Montnegre National Park.
