RENEGADE METHOD IMMERSIVE RETREAT - SPAIN, 9-12 DECEMBER 2022
Have you ever been in a position where you have tried everything to free yourself of:
- habits such as addictions
- feeling low or anxious often
- reacting to things that make you feel bad later
- succumbing to despair or hopelessness when you realize something you thought had changed has in fact, not changed
- anger and hostility toward loved ones
- feelings of unworthiness
- the need to constantly prove yourself
- feeling that the world is out to get you, you have bad luck or bad karma
- feeling stuck in relationships, careers, or finances with low creativity, joy, and purpose
- feeling unhealthy in the body and lacking vibrancy and clarity
If the answer to any of the above is a yes, the Renegade Method may be the answer.
The Renegade Method is a systematic process of inquiry that takes us through a simple, algorithmic process to access the deepest parts of the mind where strategic questions and reflections are gently placed. These parts of the mind are usually unconscious or subconscious, accounting for nearly 80% of all the decisions we make as human beings. The subconscious mind is the boss of our behavior, the way we think and feel, and the way our life unfolds before our very eyes.
Even when we think we are making wise and logical decisions, this is usually not the case.
Think of an iceberg, most of which lies hidden under the surface.
Logic comes from the conscious mind, which is like the tip of the iceberg - it mostly deals with the weight and mass of the subconscious mind by giving convenient meaning to its contents. We spend our lives making sense and giving meaning to how we think, feel, and act without being empowered to go into the depths of the subconscious to question deeply held (and absolutely false) assumptions and beliefs about ourselves and the world. Instead, we use logic to try to explain away how we think, feel, and act. However, logic only helps us cope. The mass of the subconscious mind continues to drive the bus of our lives, continuously giving feedback in the way we feel about our lives, careers, relationships, purpose, joy, fulfillment, health, wellness, vibrancy, creativity, and everything else.
Unless we cultivate the ability to dive under the surface and deal with the mass of the iceberg, we will remain stuck in our ways, meekly (or angrily) explaining away why we can't move forward.
The Renegade Method is developed to go from the logic of the conscious mind to the murky and often muddled subconscious mind, pull through the threads that hold together the false assumptions that lead to pain and suffering, and shine the light of awareness into those dark and forgotten areas to emerge being enough, fulfilled, self-actualized and joyful.
In this 4-day immersive retreat, we will explore the Renegade Method as it is useful to you. Once you learn how to work with it, you can then apply it to any life circumstance (we will teach you when to apply it - which is, all the time). Armed with this tool, you will leave empowered for having understood some of the root causes of unhappiness and how to address them directly so that you open progressively to joy, vibrancy, and sweetness in all aspects of life.
This retreat will take place one hour outside of Barcelona, Spain in an intimate setting of a small group. We will spend nearly 4 days together in sessions, breakouts, activities, and partaking in other surprise treats in a relaxed, open, inviting, and nonjudgmental atmosphere. Breakfast and dinner will be provided along with accommodations in a beautiful mansion with exquisite facilities on the property including a pool, outdoor areas for exercise and walking, and rich indoor spaces for group and individual study and reflection.
