"Where do I begin? Retreat! What an amazing experience. First of all I doubted that this would be for me. I mean 7 days just to focus on me? Won't I get bored? Distracted? Feel like I'm spending too much time on this? I mean I was looking forward to a holiday by the pool with cocktails and bin tang! Who wouldn't in Bali? But what I experienced was by far much greater than this.
"I did this retreat with my sister; admittedly it took some convincing. l now look at the photos capturing this time and feel goose bumps and so absolutely blessed to have done this and also have shared this with such amazing warriors. How absolutely magical this experience was!
Isaac shares his journey in two parts; before retreat started and after retreat finished. You can see and feel the difference in this beautiful man's journey.
"Lara Wilson came into my life at a time when I didn't think any more crap could happen to one person. I'd lost love, money, family, my house, my self esteem and my thirst for life. I was lonely, depressed, grumpy and broke. You too? You are not alone. There's lots of us out there. But there is an answer. There is a different way.
"This was my second retreat with Lara in Ubud. I was opened up to what is truly possible on the first retreat. To learn to live my life daily being authentically myself with effortless action and being present, connected, alive and free is truly amazing, and I wanted more of that. So much so that I signed up for Lara’s second retreat as soon as the dates were announced!
As soon as I entered the grounds to the venue the Retreat began. All I had to do was surrender and go with the flow for the next 7 days. From the beautiful surroundings, authentic people, Lara had gone over and above to ensure we were looked after. I continued to learn more about myself, gosh I now understand the saying “Never stop learning because life never stops teaching” and I have found an amazing teacher in life, Lara.
To mention just a few of the many things that I have taken away with me;
Lara’s has such an intuitive way of working with people. She creates such a wonderful special retreat with her guidance, knowledge, presence and awareness. Her wisdom is endless. If you have the desire to be the best you can, this retreat is it in so many ways. I would highly recommend it. I’m already looking forward to 2018 :))."
- The power of repetition. Even-though I have learnt many teachings and taken ample notes, the penny drops so to speak when your ready. This I experienced many times during the 2nd retreat.
- I really experienced the power of getting out of my head and into my feelings and connecting with my soul. What a HUGE awareness to learn why, how and who was living/driving my life.
- To truly feel the power of sitting still in my feelings and not running away or keeping busy and allowing, WOW what can start off as confronting can then evolve into total liberation and sheer bliss.
