03 Jan Can you find lasting change in a personal growth retreat?
What really works in your life? What is missing in your life? Who are you, really? And what does personal growth mean anyway?
Personal growth or personal development is the ongoing process of developing your best version of you. This includes your emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual self. Personal growth is the process by which you can develop emotional wellness and balance.
To develop greater emotional wellness it is important to understand those things that hold you back from being fully present and discovering tools to help you let those old stories go so you can move towards the happiness and potential that you long for.
The world today is filled with mixed messages and hype about how to achieve a happy life. We are told that we need to have a “good job”, do more yoga, work hard and play hard, meditate, breathe, smell roses, but don’t forget to be the perfect mother, father, son, daughter and host the perfect parties and have the perfect children.
WTF??? Those mixed messages don’t help.
In our daily lives we often wear masks of propriety. We pretend we are feeling fine, when we really feel fearful, lonely, angry, or anxious. Sometimes, we may feel even our loved ones don’t know us, but it may be our own limitations…our fear, shame, inner violence, guilt…our inability to relax and be genuine, without fear of rejection…which causes this feeling of separation. It can be so hard to be completely honest, with ourselves and with others. But what if you took off your mask, and revealed the person underneath? What would happen?
When we are seen in our authenticity, we feel connected. We feel that we belong, because we do. And others feel it too.
In the Path of Love 7-Day personal growth retreat, you will learn to honestly show your feelings and stop hiding. You will find the courage to stand in your vulnerability and recognize and go beyond your fears. You will look at your attitudes, your judgments, and your projections. You will see yourself and the world for what it really is, outside of the filters you have placed upon it from so many years of living, surviving, experiencing, and trying to be loved, accepted, appreciated, and seen.
Personal growth is a personal journey that no magazine, no influencer, no pundit can tell or impose upon you. It is your journey where you can leave your baggage behind and make choices that work for you. This journey is ongoing and all about you.
