Beautiful location and delicious food
I was in Shunyata for a detox retreat and it was a most wonderful experience. Paru was so caring, and cooked the most delicious and nutricious meals.Her Journey session and treatments were life changing! She introduced me to the Enneagram types and I felt so empowered to know my type and to know how powerful and truly unique I am! I can't want to go back! :  Pow Sydney

5 day mind and body retreat, reinforce and refresh
When I signed up to Shunyata I was nervous, vulnerable and had expectations of what I thought I needed. It took me several months to find somewhere that I felt was right for me. Once I locked in Shunyata I was determined. I was emailed beforehand by Paru asking me lots of information about myself; my lifestyle and my habits (good and bad). I arrived at Diamond Harbour and was greeted with a massive HUG and a big smile by Paru and I immediately knew that I would be in good hands (literally). Each day brought physical and mental challenges and raised my self awareness. It wasn't easy, it shouldn't be! It wasn't someone telling my what to do and how to do it! It was about lifting my awareness and belief in myself. After 5 days I felt amazing; light, clear, appreciation, forgiveness and appreciation. I lost 6kg in 8 days and I left with a love for food in moderation, forgiveness in infancy and love in abundance. Thank you Paru.  Marin Napier


Abour Paru - I was a food addict

I have to admit that food is my life and even after many years of therapy and learning to love
my body, don't get me wrong - I look back and have come a long way , but I’m 63 now and finding that my metabolism has slowed down incredibly and knowing all I know and trying so many things that could have been wrong, just couldn’t shift the weight that used to be easy. Combined with covid and the stresses that add to it which increase emotional eating – I am finally on the way down to that new, loved and cherished body that has energy, lifeforce and juice for life again for spring.   I hadn't eaten badly, just too much and used it as a reward and crutch in life.The belly fat had to go.  I am so so excited to share these tips of years and years of healthy weight loss.Not only will you love your body. It  will prevent diabetes, reduce the risk of dementia and obesity, power up your brain, boost your mood and motivation and clear inflammation in the body.  For 16 years I have been helping people physically, emotionally and spiritually to be the best version of themselves. I have noticed over covid that so many online courses lose the personal touch and you just become one in a wheel of names, and want to offer a weight loss that combines back touch, personal attention and inspiration and love.

MC UK Inc.5 days ago
I came across Shunyata Retreat whilst searching for an escape from the mental stress of every day life. I was hesitant at first, as I like to research deep before committing to SPA and Wellness retreats, especially one that I need to fly to! I chose the Ultimate Bliss - 3d/2n package after some lite reading and a brief conversation with Paru. I arrived at her peaceful retreat with an open mind with no expectations, and felt at ease from the moment I arrived. The Enneagram and The Journey are very powerful tools. Paru guides you through these sessions, not only making you feel at ease, but ensuring you are receiving all the benefits and value from doing them. The yoga, ozone sauna, oils, and massages, are all amazing touches to the overall experience. There is plenty of free time during the 3 days too. I chose to walk down to the bay, explore the peaceful surroundings and listen to the ocean. Paru's has a great selection of books in her library, for the guys I would recommend anything by David Deida. Paru is very knowledgeable and experienced in what she offers. Her hospitality, food and conversations are all 10/10! I would recommend Shunyata to anyone looking for a similar experience. I left the retreat knowing more about myself, a clearer mind, and references to further reading that will keep me on a clearer direction in life. Thank You Paru. - Mits

NZ Childhood Trauma Retreat

The statistics say that 67% of people have had some sort of childhood trauma event in their past like physical, emotional and alcohol and substance abuse which ultimately causes problems later on in life with 7 out of 10 causes of death, as per the“ACE survey ‘adverse childhood experience done in the 1990’s.

This can be

        *   Parents separating or divorce,

  • Physical, sexual, or emotional abuse,

  • Physical and emotional neglect,

  • Domestic violence,

  • Mental illness in the family,

  • Substance abuse,

  • Incarceration by a related family member.

Right now this is having a huge effect on your immune ,your gut health and can lead to increased risk of diseases, like hepatitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. dementia, ,autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue,fybromyalgia and eating disorders.

Different Types of Trauma

PTSD – response to specific event – car accident, sexual assault etc but today I am going to talk about
Developmental & Attachment trauma

This sets up your relationship with yourself and people, the ability to feel safe and helps you with adult stresses. More than 50% of people have been affected before 4 years old.

1. Emotional neglect- This one is not so obvious as it is not remembered, we were never asked how we felt so we didn’t develop emotional intelligence. This should be taught in schools and is now at epidemic levels. We feel empty and hold a  wall around our emotions.

2. Integenerational trauma – inherited from grandparents, epigenetics- what happens in utero.
This I can truly confirm in myself with my immune.

3. Things happen before age 4 – most critical time – in early attachment trauma, separation in early life, insecure attachment, earlier makes more crucial..Our experiences in childhood that impact our biology, personality, our immune behaviour as drives or survival mechanisms of over achiever perfectionist, low self worth, feeling deficient, sabotage, workalcholishm, depression, bi-polar and many mental disorders.This is where the enneagram comes in – patterns of unconcious behaviour that take starts around 4 years old.

Stress

We cannot blame the outside for stress anymore, it is all about perception and how we are wired. It is a crisis of disconnection syndrome from being connected to our essence or true self, our level of groundedness , calm and heart connection.. It takes courage and awareness to face emotions and do the deep work, but ultimately it is life changing. We cannot do the spiritual bypass anymore but go back and dig deep so we can live this human life which can be traumatic in itself.

Nervous Response

We either have triggered fight/flight response which can cause inflammation or a dorsal or freeze response where the vagus nerve is in a shutdown or flat mode state which can cause chronic fatigue, depression or bipolar where we are too overwhelmed to deal with things at the time.

Great video on importance of emotional work on your immune response

https://youtu.be/VJOv9HfiMU0

Here at shunyata when we do the Journey and the enneagram work we go back with a guided meditation where we establish the trauma known or unknown, then allowing us to reparent our inner child, come to a forgiveness on a cellular level which quietens the mind, brings you back to presence and love and helps you to reset boundaries and re-energise your life force. This ultimately boosts your immune and helps with your stress responses.

We also practice vagus nerve stimulators such as meditation, yoga, high vibrational essential oils, gratitude, rest, compassion, self love and groundedness which ultimately lead to more joy and openess for life. We also address circadia rythms and sleep and food preferences through ayurveda and essential oils.  It's all about you!

Where we have had the best success has been up, depreshutdown and heartbreak from relationship breakup, depression, low energy, phobias, eating disorders, anxiety, addictions, sexual abuse, and so many more in the16 years of helping people at a deep cellular level. It is your birthright to reclaim your essence - your innocence and this can be possible on
retreat in NZ.  Give it to yourself and leave with a holiday where you leave your baggage behind.

Beyond Meditation Retreat NZ - 20th Aug 2020

Beyond Meditation Retreat NZ

Meditation Retreat NZ

What google says:

Meditation, which is the practice of focused concentration, bringing yourself back to the moment over and over again, actually addresses stress, whether positive or negative." Meditation can also reduce the areas of anxiety, chronic pain, , depression, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Meditating helps us to control our mind and thoughts and turn off our mind when we do not need it anymore. Meditation is essential to feel well and live a Happy Life. But why? Meditation can help us to eliminate negative thoughts, worries, anxiety, all factors that can prevent us feeling happy.

The importance of meditation is paramount in these times. Most people give up after trying meditation, but Shunyata means quiet mind and it is a practice that will help you find the truth and clarity inside of yourself. If the mind is full of fear,doubt and judgement, wouldn’t you love to give it a break There is another place to live, that is in the truth of our bodies ,our hearts and ultimately our souls.

At Shunyata we go deeper than just meditating, so after a stay here – most people have met that place deep beyond the mind withThe Journey method and find clarity to move forward in their lives. Yes we have a guided meditation every night, chakra balancing, abdominal breathing and all bringing us back to this moment and Paru believes that sometimes the body needs to move in yoga to have that stillness and so shunyata is also offering one of the also a NZ Yoga Retreat or dancing like no-one is watching,to come to that quiet mind.

Ultimately we want to be present, which means no thought of past, no thought of future, just here now. Presence is pure love and if we arrive in this place, everything in life looks good. Food tastes better, the heart is open, there is never a problem – the only problems come from the mind in the past being the story and in the future which causes anxiety. Eventually with vigilence, life becomes a meditation, when you are present in every moment.

Let go of your story, so the universe can write a new one for you

 

Imagine being in a beautiful peaceful  ocean view sanctuary overlooking the yachts bobbing on the water where your mind is quiet. Imagine having clarity and hope for your future. Meditation and quiet at Shunyata will give you the tools to move onto your next chapter. Maybe it’s your life purpose, maybe a new job, maybe a new way to be in relationship -all of these creative juices will be tantalised, opened and nurtured, as here it's about uniquely you.  You are not just a crowd of people with all different needs.

Recent testimonial from male client

My wife booked the retreat and I was keen but uncertain of what it would be like. I found it to be one of the most peaceful and relaxing places I have visited. Paru encourages honesty but I never felt that I had exposed too much of myself and there is a sense of a burden lifted and a new sense of lightness. Our relationship needed to get back on track and after the weekend I felt that my wife and I had reconnected and had fallen in love all over again. The food was without exception delicious and Paru has a real interest and respect for her clients. I have seen counsellors before but have never gone so deep into childhood issues and lift with a new sense of respect for who I am and what I can achieve.

Shadow, Persona and Ego in Full Force - 9th Jun 2020

Shadow, Persona and Ego in Full Force

SHADOW, PERSONA & EGO PATTERNS

 

COVID was  a global meditation retreat which noone signed up for..How did you use this time? There had never been a better time to do the work on yourself and if you did this, you bow down to COVID19 with gratitude for having this time and space.  All illusions of pleasure and safety and
freedom were taken away from us and stripped us back - to 

Retreat NZ


We can let covid take us down - or use it to awaken.The unconcious behaviours which run 95% of our life were showing up in full force in this time of uncertainty because they are a survival mechanism, but they can’t work anymore.Is it time for you to come and sort out how to show up in this world so that the world can benefit?Are you sick of doing the same shit and living in the society that is the cult? Your soul matters, your essence matters! This is the time to go deeper.

When we stop and be still – we have to face the dark, our shadows, our ego – the parts of ourself we don’t love. So I am sure many unmet feelings were coming up at this time and you didn't  know how to deal with them. Believe me – emotional intelligence was never taught in schools and should be on the curriculum, so you are not alone.  The fear, sadness and anger
have to be felt as part of the clearing.

Spiritual Retreat NZ

At Shunyata we will bring you to your soul, to your essence, your purpose so you can take this and make a difference.Yes you will need to go into the fire and burn what is not you – yes it takes courage but here you are held in a safe embrace to do this – so what is beating inside of you comes out alive to the world. You will experience a freedom beyond ego and personality to show up as your true self. You will wake up a dormant fire in your belly and claim back your lifeforce and you will take back the power of your divinity. Yes you need to be vulnerable – but this is the true power.

WHAT IS EGO, PERSONA, SHADOW, LOWER SELF

According to Jungian analyst Robert A. Johnson, “The persona–or ego–is what we would like to be and how we wish to be seen in the world….The ego is what we are and know about consciously. The shadow is that part of us we fail to see  or know.”

While each type has strengths and strong points, each type also has a shadow— aspects of experience, thoughts, and feelings they remain unconscious to. As a  product of ancient spiritual and wisdom traditions, the Enneagram is an “objective” map of both the patterns associated with waking consciousness—and shadow aspects we remain unconscious to. By helping us see, own, and develop our blind spots and  disowned feelings, the Enneagram supports us in becoming conscious of all of who we are and manifesting our highest potentials.

Why We Should Meet Our Shadows or our Dark Sides or our Egos

1. Cause they are loaded with treasures and gifts about self – when we meet the dark we have more light.

2. It is a shadow so it is leaky, somehow it leaks out or spills out in reaction not response.

3. It wants to be seen, it wants our love, to be accepted and integrated by us – it is a part of us.

4. Takes a lot of our lifeforce – to keep it shutdown – we use so much energy –

5. Not bad to have it , it had a very good reason it exist, to keep us safe and to get love and sustenance . It has been our persona and our mask but to truly grow up we need to  bring awareness  to it to let it go.

6. Often the dark side of ourselves – is the nemisis of the gifts and the purpose we could be living.

7. Brings us back to our power and our authenticity

8. When someone says drop your ego, at least you know your flavour. We are not all like Donald Trump – some of us hide from the world.

9. Most people on a spiritual path bypass the dark shadow work and this. To be whole you have to meet the dark to have more light and authenticity.

These shadows or dark sides were formed early in life around 3 years old and they are defence mechanisms to feel safe. They are behaviours that we form in relation to our environment.Maybe,as our parents are our main caregivers at this time until we go to school, they are usually in reaction or similar to the parents. For myself in my family of 5 – there were 3 that ended up like my father and myself who ended up like my mother, but that does vary.

Resilience When we Emotionally Release

When trauma or crisis happens in life or in relationship we go into powerlessness (masculinereaction) and unloveability (feminine reaction). We then can react or respond. We need to unblock these emotions as they can cause illness and more addiction, shutdown and disassociation.I have often said, as per Gabor Mates work – the unmet sadness, grief and anger ,what he proved in the many years in his work, was the reason for illness and addiction.

When we remove the veils from our heart we become one with the world.

Emotional Release Work You can Do at Home

1. Put the person who you have an issue with in front of you in a pillow and dialogue

2. Put on music and shake through that emotion – move the body

3. If you have a scream inside put your both hands over your mouth and scream

4. Grab a large pillow and thump out anger on the side of your arms

5. If there is grief – open our your heart, lean back and moan out the sadness and grief on your chest

6. If you have essential oils – use breathe and console for grief.

7. Use breath, sound, movement and awareness.

I believe that the mind can't do this, it  has to be experienced - it can't be done online, believe me I have done so many onlines courses.  Whether you are suffering from despression, anxiety, a
physical illness, a marriage breakup, loss of a job,  a lack of lustre for life and really want to change  and sick of the same old
the Ultimate Bliss Retreat 3 days  or Ultimate Healing Day if you live in Christchurch will
set you on the path to freedom for the next step post covid


.

The soul of the world is whispering for us to come home to our true selves - give yourself this awakening

 

 

 

 

 

What is Pure Love - 30th May 2020

What is Pure Love The True Meaning of the Purest Love

I had no idea when I went to an Ashram in India in the 90's that my search for love was so
intense ,and on going back several times over 10 years I truly saw a lot of the catholic guilt
and shame being released from me around sexuality and then continued this masters of the
true meaning of love for the past 20 years.

Somehow along that path I discovered the enneagram and became fascinated with the
suffering my mother went through in her life and the similarity we shared and decided  to
live her legacy and be the best version of her and myself in this area of love.  so when the course came up with Love and the Enneagram, there was no way I could not do it.

 

Wellness Retreat NZ


Be the Change you want to see in the world - Ghandi

It’s possible to have love become YOUR way of being... in all your  relationships, in your vocation, and in all your actions in the world. When Gandhi was serving as a force of love in the world, for example, he understood that love is a spiritual path, a practice, a way of life — and that love is our only true identity.

What is LOVE? Most of us assume we know the answer...From the moment we’re born, though, society actually gives us many  wrong ideas about love.For instance, that love is an overwhelming powerful feeling... often sweeping and dramatic... or perhaps mushy and sentimental...And so fear, attachment issues, wounds, and emotions are actually what many of us mistakenly describe as love.

Retreat NZ

What if you redefined LOVE as something you become — rather than something you feel or receive?What if we all cultivated a deeper understanding of what real love is?Not only would our lives change for the better — the world would change,too.

The ancient, multidimensional wisdom of the Enneagram, which I have been addicted to for the
last 20 years, the healthiest addiction I have,  helps to guide you to understand what love is — and what it’s not.It reveals the nine ways each of us (unconsciously) distorts love, depending on our Enneagram type — usually from a fear-driven place of ego or separation.

The Enneagram shows you the way out of your delusions and helps you leave behind the suffering of isolation...... and move into relaxed, abundant, creative, and authentic love, intimacy, and connection with ourselves — and with everyone. Imagine exploring the power of embodied love and relatedness and what it can do in your life — and for life on earth.

the 3 Stages of Love:

  • The journey towards love (searching for love as if it’s outside of ourselves)

  • The journey with love (seeing love as a guide in all your relationships)

  • The journey as love (developing a way of being that’s living from love in every moment)

Love isn’t just from the heart, it operates in the 3 centres of the body, head, heart and body and generated from intelligence, clarity, action and presence in the body.The miracle of love is self acceptance and a mirror of non-judgement,.  The power of  forgiveness can release us from our fixations and love gives us the best chance to become the person you most want to be in the
world.

Health Retreat NZ


On my journey with the Enneagram at the beginning ,on bringing awareness to my patterns and
fixation, I did a not of judgement of self and always looked to the negative traits and now 20
years on, I am realising that we do have a human side, we are not perfect but truly heading
towards this best version of what we want to be.  Over the months of this course, something
deep inside has changed in my version of love.  Being an emotional type, I always related to
heart and love but am discovering so many gorgeous traits of each and everyone's uniqueness.
I have been blessed to be around children and bringing out their best as their patterns are established at such an early age, and coming to forgiveness with my siblings cause their way
of experessing love isn't the same as mine.

This has prompted me to write this article, and if you feel moved then come and do a retreat combinng this amazing ancient wisdom of The Enneagram with The Journey method - which is a guided meditation to take you back toa block or trauma in childhood and coming to a soul's forgiveness, will be the best thing you can ever do for yourself in this lifetime.  Lets face , proven over and over these are the top 5 regrets of the dyng

  1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. ...always caring what people think
  2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard. ...  and was more present with my loved ones 
  3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings. ...and ultimately create more love & intimacy
  4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.- and realised who was important 
  5.  I wish that I had let myself be happier. - and found causeless joy inside

Covid has brought up a semi death of the ego and these patterns of survival and now is the time to set yourself free.and come home to the love that you truly are.Come on a 3 day Ultimate Bliss retreat and a tour of presence after, or a 5 day detox or a Couples Return to Love 3 or 5 days

Retreat in New Zealand then Spiritual Trip South - 24th May 2020

Retreat in New Zealand then Spiritual Trip South

Why Kiwis Should Visit South Island after lockdown and Aussies Come Over

Why Not Combine a Ski Holiday or a breathtaking road trip with a Retreat where you leave your baggage behind.Many years ago I travelled the rockies in Canada and realised, with playing the most beautiful music, and holding presence,that trip stayed with me for years.   After doing
the Journey at Shunyata your mind will be quiet and you will experience pure presence.
Well this presence took me through the south last week with the same feeling and know that people will never forget the trip they have with me in the van, the beautiful essential oils, the best music and rituals and the most beautiful walks, scenery and sheer perfection of our gorgeous country.
 

Spiritual Retreat/Journey NZ

Ok, I can say I am an authority on travel, having left NZ at 18 by boat to England and travelling for 27 years, 20 years of that a travel agent. Yes I will be honest, I usually leave every winter but have come to accept that this year will be different. NZ beauty is waiting for you. I can also say that I have travelled nearly all of New Zealand and absolutely love and want to celebrate this beauty with you. We live in a gorgeous, gorgeous country, winter, summer, spring and autumn. I am on fire creating your itinerary for after the retreat.

Flying into Christchurch I can put together an exciting itinerary for you, best doing the retreat first.In the penisular surrounding Christchurch – there is spectacular scenery and the day trip I do to Akaroa via the wildness of the coast is breathtaking, maybetaking in an amazing maori museum and/or stopping at a sacred beach on return. The other excursion I offer is Castle Hill which is 1 1/2 hours from here and could be combined with trip south – the Dalai Lama quoted it as the spiritual centre of the universe https://awol.junkee.com/the-dalai-lama-called-these-nz-boulders-the-spiritual-centre-of-the-universe/41237.The moment you arrive at those mountains, your breath is taken away.

Spiritual Reteat New Zealand

Just arriving in Christchurch, with the rebuild after the earthquakes, we have a foodies paradise and believe me – I am one of those foodies. So will recommend the best restaurants and 
places to stay.

Here’s some rough itinearies – but with minimum of 2 and max of 4 we can adapt.

Wake the f..........up - 7th May 2020

Wake the f..........up

SHOWING UP AND RESILIENCE IN THESE TIMES

COVID is a global meditation retreat which noone signed up for.

Are you sick of hearing how you shoul be!


Well one thing you would have noticed is that all the corruption is being exposed and the world isn't going
to be the same.  I am not going to give you advice on how to be but tell you this is the chance to be the 
best version of yourself to show up in this new world and make a difference.

How did you use this time?
If you haven't already , you will bow down to COVID19 with gratitude for having this time and space and pause.  Stop, wait and listen.
Do you want your power back - your soverignty?
Are you sick of doing the same shit and living in the society that is the cult?
Your soul matters, your essence matters! 

When we stop and be still – we have to face the dark, our shadows, our ego – the parts of ourself we don’t love. So I am sure many unmet feelings are coming up at this time and you don’t know how to deal with them. Believe me – emotional intelligence was never taught in schools and should be on the curriculum, so you are not alone.

At Shunyata we will bring you to your soul, to your essence, your purpose so you can take this and make a difference. Yes you will need to go into the fire and burn what is not you – yes it takes courage,but here you are held in a safe embrace to do this – so what is beating inside of you comes out alive to the world. You will experience a freedom beyond ego and personality to show up as your true self. You will wake up a dormant fire in your belly and claim back your lifeforce and you will take back the power of your divinity.Yes you need to be vulnerable – but this is true power, and you will never look back.

What is Ego, Persona, Shadow, Lower Self

According to Jungian analyst Robert A. Johnson, “The persona–or ego–is what we would like to be and how we wish to be seen in the world….The ego is what we are and know about consciously. The shadow is that part of us we fail to see or know.”

While each type has strengths and strong points, each type also has a shadow—aspects of experience, thoughts, and feelings they remain unconscious to. As aproduct of ancient spiritual and wisdom traditions, the Enneagram is an “objective”map of both the patterns associated with waking consciousness—and shadow aspects we remain unconscious to. By helping us see, own, and develop our blind spots and disowned feelings, the Enneagram supports us in becoming conscious of all of who we are and manifesting our highest potentials.

Why We Should Meet Our Shadows or our Dark Sides or our Egos

1. Because they are loaded with treasures and gifts about self – when we meet the dark,we have more light.

2. It is a shadow so it is leaky, somehow it leaks out or spills out in reaction not response.

3. It wants to be seen, it wants our love, to be accepted and integrated by us – it is a part of us.

4. It takes a lot of our lifeforce – to keep it shutdown – we use so much energy –draining on energy

5. It's not bad, it had a very good reason it exist, to keep us safe and to get love and sustenance . It has been our persona and our mask but to truly grow up we need to bring awareness to it to let it go.

6. Often the dark side of ourselves – is the nemesis of the gifts and the purpose we could be living. So we can use it to truly know our life purpose.

7. It brings us back to our power and our authenticity

8. When someone says drop your ego, at least you know your flavour. We are not all like Donald Trump,
some of us are people pleasers and scared of confrontation.  Some of us are addicted to helping others.
and some of us are tragic romantics - living in deep lies of what love is.

These shadows or dark sides were formed early in life around 3 years old and they are defence mechanisms to feel safe. They are behaviours that we form in relation to our environment. Maybe,as our parents are our main caregivers at this time until we go to school, they are usually in reaction or similar to the parents. For myself in my family of 5 – there were 3 that ended up like my fatherand myself who ended up like my mother, but that does vary.

Emotional Release Work Helps Resilience

When trauma or crisis happens in life or in relationship we go into powerlessness (masculine reaction) and unloveability (feminine reaction). We then can react or respond. We need to unblock these emotions as they can cause illness and more addiction, shutdown and disassociation. I have often said, as per Gabor Mates work – the unmet sadness, grief and anger ,what he proved in the many years in his work, was the reason for illness and addiction.

I have just finished an online ISTA convention where  I too had to meet some blocks around my son. So 
yes this work never ends but it brings such a self compassion and aliveness and passion back that I 
truly can't wait to share it after lockdown.  I honour my humility  and courage to never knowing too much - to the love of this aliveness and juicyness of my own being,  so I can be a true inspiration to others.

When we remove the veils from our heart we become one with the world.

 

Emotional Release Work You can Do in Your Bubble

1. Put the person who you have an issue with in front of you in a pillow and dialogue

2. Put on music and shake through that emotion – move the body

3. If you have a scream inside put your both hands over your mouth and scream

4. Grab a large pillow and thump out anger on the pillow but be careful not to hurt yourself.

5. If there is grief – open our your heart, lean back and moan out the sadness and grief on your chest

6. If you have essential oils – use breathe and console for grief.

7. Use breath, sound, movement and awareness.

It is hard to do this work on your own and it is hard to do a journey on your own without being held to your highest, so either come to Shunyata on a retreat or ultimate healing day or  I will eventually do a zoom on emotional work at some stage.

The difference of doing the work at Shunyata, is it is very one on one, not in a big group and you truly matter, you are seen beyond your shadow and woken up.When you meet the heartbreak, the pain of where you have not lived and you crack this open – you come home to an aliveness that is the best addiction you could ever have. beyond healing – it is beyond personal development.

The Soul of the World is Whispering for us to Come Home

This is beyond the fear of survival - it is true awakening and if this speaks to your soul I hope to meet you on your journey
