Weekend Meditation Retreat: You Are Enough (The YAE! Retreat)
June 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - June 27, 2021 @ 12:00 pm
“Mary is a very capable and independent woman, determined to prove herself. Whenever she is in a conversation with someone, she finds ways to demonstrate her intelligence and power. The other person in the conversation, not to be outdone, starts expounding on their own achievements, which are often far greater than her own. Mary, feeling small again, tries to pick apart their achievements and emphasize her own.
Each side tries to establish superior status, while increasingly feeling uneasy that their own self-worth may not be what they think it is. The fight for dominance makes it harder and harder for each side to end the conversation, as that would be a sign of weakness. The rivalry that develops weakens each of them, recreating the feeling of uncertainty and lack of self-worth which they are trying to avoid in the first place. They use up all of their energy in the battle and no energy is left for growth or cooperation.”
Have you ever felt like you were not enough? We all have had this feeling at some time or another. What if it was possible to transform this feeling…into being enough? What if you were enough, just as you are, without needing to do anything else? That would be pretty awesome.
This retreat will help you quiet your mind, open your heart, and awaken your diamond mountain of self-confidence. Knowing deep down in your core, you are already enough. The abundance you can offer the world is overwhelming. What is given to you is even more so. Discover the opportunities that have always been right in front of you.
This retreat is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators alike. Experienced meditators will have plenty to work with as the practices go quite deep.
Come join us for the YAE Retreat and yay every day!
