Weekly on Sundays, May 31, June 7, June 14, June 21 and June 28
5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Central European Time (Italy/Germany)

A Five-Part Live, Online Course Taught by Path Retreats Founders, Turiya Hanover and Rafia Morgan



As children we were born in our True Nature as beautiful bundles of energy, aliveness, instinct and Essence. Slowly, in order to survive in the environments we grew up in, we lost contact with many aspects of our Being and fixated into defensive personalities that attempt to function as imitations of our True Nature or Essence.

In these days we will explore different dimensions and aspects of True Nature and their imitation in our personalities. Through this work we will introduce effective methods and understandings that will help you to begin to reclaim and embody those lost aspects. You will develop insight and compassionate understanding of your personality structure as well as learn and discover very applicable tools that support integration into your daily life.

Through meditation, self-exploration, understanding, inquiry and teachings you will be introduced to this particularly relevant and insightful methodology and gain valuable insights and tools which are needed to regain lost parts of your Essential Being. It is an opportunity to uncover, discover and remember the source of your self-worth, love, power, strength, courage, trust, compassion and true joy.

Part 1: Introduction to Inquiry & Embodiment of Essential Will and Trust

In part 1, there will be an introduction to two aspects of Essence work.

Introduction to Inquiry: Inquiry is a precise and profound method for self-discovery which deepens with practice and reveals the truth of who we really are.

Introduction to the embodiment of our Essential Will and Trust: This aspect deals with a precise distinction between True Will and false will, helps with grounding, the development of inner support and provides important keys for how to live in Trust.

Part 2: Introduction to Embodiment of Essential Aspects of Strength, Courage and Individuation

In part 2 ,we will introduce the embodiment of the Essential Aspect of Strength, Courage and Individuation as an autonomous human. We will share insights into how to find the courage to stand our own ground as well as how to deal with issues of separation and merging with others.

Part 3: Exploring the Essence of Power and Peace

In part 3, we will explore the Essence of Power and Peace, deal with facing death, and give a way to become more familiar with our shadow or personal dark side. This very deep aspect is oriented around our relationship with truth and our longing for peace.

Part 4: Introduction of True Compassion, Kindness and Self-Acceptance

In part 4, we will introduce and explore the beautiful realm of true compassion, kindness and self-acceptance. In order to heal and reclaim our Essence we need to learn to be truly kind to ourselves about the personalities we have developed into, and understand the difference between the power of Essential Compassion and the false compassion we have learned.

Part 5: Discovering the Essence of True Joy and Celebration

In part 5, we will indicate the keys and doorways for the discovery of the Essence of True Joy and Celebration. Reconnecting to our natural inner joy is a natural consequence of loving the Truth.
