Pressing pause is sometimes all we need. Life can often seem like there is little to no opportunity to press reset. Juggling life, work and everything in-between and with the social conditioning of putting everything else first before ourselves, running on empty has become part and parcel of life. But what if your reset wasn’t to undo the things that dwelled within your mind, but to embrace them and completely change your prospective of them? A total, mind, body and soul rest, helping to create the foundation of what is to come. Our retreats are moments to truly focus on self. They are designed to challenge your prospective and viewpoint of personal obstacles, challenges and uncertainties. Giving you a stronger understanding of self and a better perspective of your life and your place within it. Connecting you deeper to people and place within a supportive yet accountable space. Becoming comfortable with the silence, Sufi’s highlight the importance of discipline and that is at the core of their practices and daily life. Fasting and noble silence are practices used by Sufi’s, to help quiet the mind and condition the body. By learning to keep from speaking every word that comes up or eating every time we are hungry, it helps us to see things more clearly, and it puts us in deeper contact with ourselves and those around us. This transcendent fusion of practice and cross-cultural experimentation is such a powerful space for introspective travel and personal connection, growth and exploration. On this journey of exploration, we are being taught to feel into our bodies and be present in all that we are doing, understand the resistance within us and persist through these transient states, continuing to practice regardless of the negative states as well as the positive ones. Their frequency is as important as their impermanence.
