Mind, Heart, Soul Retreats were inspired by simplicity. Although we are complex beings I was inspired and drawn to the concept of understanding and experience being possible to be simple and profound at the same time.
I was also inspired by the complexity of our time. With high technology and a multitude of theories and ways of living the conception of a ‘perfect’ life, I was called to the idea that we truly have all we need inside of us.
And that because of this, a sacred space where we can come together with suspended judgement, acceptance, shared learning and wisdom enables this coming home to our true self.
As I searched for a name to capture this I came across a beautiful Japanese word.
Kokoro unites the notions of heart, mind, and spirit: It sees these three elements as being indivisible from one other. Yoshikawa Sakiko, (director of Kyoto University’s Kokoro Research Center.)
And so… Kokoro retreats are an opportunity to come back home to your true self and be more of who you truly are.
Together we come to learn and share about our minds and ways to quieten the thoughts and worry and anxiety to make way for the highest expression of our minds… creativity.
Grant Soosalu was on this earth for far too short a time and yet he left a huge legacy of Mbit (Multiple Brain Integration techniques) and he was the person who introduced the idea that each of our intelligences (head, heart and gut) has a highest expression.
So we learn and come to know that our heart at its highest expression is compassion and our gut at its highest expression is courage.
Soul is many things to many people however, for Kokoro Retreats it is the all, the essence, the truth. It is where spirituality, our own spirituality individual to us all resides.
And so , we come together. We share learnings, we share our stories, we sing, we laugh and we grow. We strive to become more comfortable with presence and we also remember together our true essence and remind one another that a balance of feminine and masculine energies bring us all of what we need and more.
Our first retreat was held in June 2019 and our second retreat although fully booked has a waiting list and you can register below.
There are 3 retreats planned for 2020 (pending venue availability) so if you wish to be on the waiting list, you can also be added to our mailing list to be in touch for future retreats.
Thankyou for your interest in Kokoro Retreats.
