We’ve carefully selected experiences founded on cutting-edge awareness-based technologies led by some of the world’s greatest specialists in the fields of Mindfulness, Presencing and Heartfulness.
Mindfulness is a capacity all human beings possess to pay attention deliberately and in a particular way to the present moment, to what’s going on within and around us, with an attitude of kindness and curiosity. This capacity of being awake and aware, rather than operating unconsciously, can be cultivated. Maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle lens, helps bringing choice and wisdom to all areas of your life.
Considered as the Raja Yoga for the modern life. Heartfulness is a secular spiritual approach to life, the world around us and to our Self. It is about tuning into our heart and learning to be centered in our highest Self. By strengthening that connection we cultivate an inner knowing that wisely directs and guides us to become what we’re meant to be.
A framework for learning, leading, innovating, and profound systems change. Building upon two decades of action research at MIT, Theory U offers a set of principles and practices for understanding current reality and exploring emerging future possibilities. It allows to update the operating code in our individual and societal systems through a shift in consciousness from ego-system to eco-system awareness.
One of the most effective methods to allow individual or group systems to shift towards greater health. It is a social technology that explores the creative potential of Theory U and presencing, and physically embodies the U journey. It uses simple body postures and movements to dissolve limiting concepts, to communicate directly, to access intuition, and to make visible both current reality, and the deeper – often invisible – state of interactions in a system and some leverage points for creating profound change.
See what people that have participated at the retreat have to say about this unique and deep experience.
“The combination of Mindfulness, Heartfulness and Presencing as well a the great guidance of Vasco, and the support of the group, allowed each participant to connect quickly to inner depth, intuition and knowing.
It allowed openness and trust within the group so that each one could engage fully in the process, release and let go of obstacles and support each other into revealing and uncovering their qualities and highest potentials.”
“My intention is clearer. When I went to the retreat it was blurry. It was like an epiphany. I have been feeling that I interact with the world in a lighter and more intuitive way.”
“I want to thank the beautiful gift these three days were. It was so important! Great program! I feel like repeating it several times per year to keep aligned.”
“The retreat was a moment of reflection and contemplation. Its design allowed me to turn inside and tune body and mind, and to go even deeper, to where the heart finds and orientates the mind, to discover my inner wisdom. Vasco’s kind and compassionate facilitation supported my path during the three days, allowing to open my mind, heart and will. At the end of the three days a new futured emerged in me.”
