“There are some keys that I always, always have close to my heart…and with me in whatever I do or wherever I go. If you really take the Seven Keys into your life, they will make a huge, huge difference to your life. They will change you completely if you really take them in.”
– Turiya Hanover, Path Retreats co-Founder
The Seven Keys, the foundation of the Path of Love 7-Day Retreat, are brilliant reminders to help you to remember who you really are. Each key is a door into your own being.
These keys, which give us a wonderful foundation for living our daily lives, are not only for the seven days of the Path of Love. They are keys that you can use always. And they bring you a sense of clarity, they bring you honesty, they give you something you can orient yourself towards. They give you a reminder for something you can always work on within yourself. They give you a door into yourself to learn, to feel, to own your projections and to live a more real, honest, truthful and conscious life.
This program is a continuation and deepening of the Path of Love work, an exploration of these powerful Seven Keys so you can embody them and bring them into your heart. These keys are something you can use every day, to remember who you are…that beautiful person you discovered in the Path of Love. Remember Day 7…and how you felt? So connected to who you truly are, to your true essence? That is what the whole Path of Love is about, to come out of your conditioned ego, worries, fears, and anxieties and remember…to come into who you really are.
Who am I really? What am I? The Seven Keys are a wonderful reminder to help you to go IN and have the courage, honesty and truth to be who you are. In order to face all of your defenses, your ego structure, your conditioned mind, your worries and your fears, you need a lot of courage. The Seven Keys help to support you so you can have the courage to really come back home to yourself.
If you really take the keys into your heart, these could be keys for the rest of your life.

- 17.5 Hours of immersion in the Path of Love modality.
- Cognitive teaching, inquiry, meditation, movement, and deep sharing work.

- Weekly homework and integration work.
- Teaching videos on each key from Rafia, Turiya, Alima, Avinash, Sambhavo, Samved and Satyarthi!
The Seven Keys are a confidential aspect of the Path of Love Retreat, so we cannot share them here (as much as we would like to…as they are such a beautiful transmission of the work and very good reminders of who we really are, in our true essence…beyond our personalities, masks, fears, thoughts and emotions.) But here is a sampling of what will be covered in each of the weeks:
In week one we focus on feelings.
- Is it easy for you to feel? Do you welcome feeling?
- What message did you receive growing up around feelings?
- What is it like for you to show your feelings? To allow vulnerability?
This week will offer guidance and support for you to welcome and accept feelings as a doorway to your true self.
In week two we will take a deep and real look at fear and how it controls us and often dictates our actions and direction in life. We will:
- Explore what exactly is fear? What is the difference between anxiety and fear? How does it feel in my body? What decisions do I make in my life as a result of fear?
- Begin to de-mystify fear and open the door to the idea that fear is actually pointing a direction in our life for expansion and that often our greatest breakthroughs are as we can step in and experience fear.
- Offer a number of techniques and exercises to help us deal with our worries and fear, and support us in turning fear into our ally.
In week three we will look at the situations that trigger us, and how we blame other people or the world for our pain and discomfort. We tend to project our darkness on the outside. It is not other people that have to change, but some belief or attitude inside of us.
Freedom lies in turning the arrow inwards. We will look at how we create our world through our inner filters and conditioning. We will look at how to stop being victims and discover our own power and resources.
In week four we will examine in-depth the thoughts, beliefs and judgement that hold us back in life. We will:
- Explore the ideas and beliefs we have regarding ourselves, others and in life in general, and how these are often a prison that limits us and often creates a sense of frustration and despair. As we become aware, expose and get a sense of these judgements, feelings, and patterns of thinking we can identify where they came from and begin to change and create new ways of being in the world that is more satisfying and rewarding.
- Work towards creating a life that is satisfying and in line with our vision of what it is to be fully human.
The path of love is a path of the heart…and our longing for the truth can be felt as both passionate and painful. We may call it divine discontent…. a homesickness of the heart. This week, we ignite and explore the flame of our longing which is attuned to the truth of our heart and being. As such it gives us both direction and relief that at last “I am going Home.”
We dive in like Hafiz or Rumi, willing to burn all that is false, in the fire of love.
In week six we will examine how we respond when challenged in life and how we often collapse or step back in resignation when difficult situations arise. We will:
- Look at the enduring power of commitment and how commitment to ourselves can become a place of strength and support.
- Investigate and learn tools to help honor and support ourselves and our direction in life even in the face of adverse feelings and situations, or a sense of overwhelm.
- From this place, we can build a felt sense of confidence and relaxed inner strength.
In week seven, we look at the act of surrender. Where we move beyond therapy. What happens when we have done all we can do, lived all we can live from our own will, and have the humility to lay down our arms and ask for help?
How is to simply admit we don’t know. To open our hands in a gesture of prayer and forgiveness. A deep exploration of Trust.
Our on-line courses have been designed as unique, one-time live offerings from our Leaders, and recordings of modules will not be available. Thank you for understanding, and enjoy the live course!
