What is taking a Retreat with Lineage of Light actually like? The truth is, it’s impossible to describe — partially because it is a multi-dimensional experience, often beyond words, and partially because it’s different for each person who participates.
This ancient lineage originates back in a time when humankind knew itself to be an inseparable part of everything that exists. This reality has not changed, we in the modern world simply see ourselves differently now. We have created a conceptual reality in which our personalities (comprised of our learned beliefs) are in charge. We have come to depend on the compartmentalized world view of science, and the rational mind. While all of these perspectives are valid in their own way, it doesn’t change the ‘big picture’ — the fact that we humans are in a constant, symbiotic relationship with our environment, as well as with our inner worlds. Our hearts beat in concert with the earth, our blood moves with the seas & the phases of the moon, molecules from our breath and skin are carried by the wind to the far corners of the globe. While we are alive in this body, our cellular being is inseparable from our thoughts, emotions, memories, beliefs, hopes and dreams.
IGNITING CELLULAR WISDOM
Lineage of Light Retreats ignite our molecular & cellular wisdom to reconnect with this foundational sense of Being. How this takes place is unique to each Retreat. In general, we engage in guided physical practices which allow us to open to our innate wisdom. Ancient protocol gives us the opportunity to open to new ways of perceiving. We learn a movement meditation that ignites our awareness of the Infinite in our own body, mind, emotions and spirit. We are also nourished with delicious, organic and locally sourced vegan meals created by Master Chefs!
The whole experience, of course, ‘lands’ within the complex matrix of each individual. Some people experience a great deal of relief and recognition as they discover a wider sense of Self. Others are challenged to give up old ways of seeing and being. Some encounter unresolved events or patterns that are seeking resolution and wholeness.
TRANSFORMING YOUR ESSENTIAL RESONANCE
So each Retreat is basically about YOU at a deep and foundational level — what openings and resistances make up your way of seeing and navigating your inner and outer world. What stands in the way of our wholeness will emerge as a gift for each person to meet. As our gifts arise, we learn ancient ways to meet & honor them. We learn how to navigate with our internal ‘Ohana (Family), for the highest good of all. We learn to embrace parts of ourselves that may have been hurt or lost. We learn embodied ways to move forward with all of who we are, with all that brought us to this moment, as the Force of Nature that we are. We learn how to come into a resonance of unity, where no part of ourselves, inside or out, is excluded.
Each moment of the Retreat allows a focal point for all aspects of ourselves. As we ebb and flow in the safety of the work, we continue to move forward, doing embodiment exercises which balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain, loosen the grip of the programmed mind, call forward our cellular family, and surrender to the vastness that lies at our core.
The Retreats are essentially about seeing ourselves and the world in new, more expansive ways, which changes our essential resonance. When our core frequency changes, everything in our lives change! The bodywork of Ancient Lomi Lomi comes from this opening. This frequency allows us to access the body on all levels: from the molecular to the etheric. While it is not necessary to be a bodyworker, or pursue the bodywork, Ancient Lomi Lomi is a transformational practice which grounds all aspects of the work deeply in our whole system.
So, what are the Retreats like? Depending on who you are, they can be: challenging, exciting, transformational, revolutionary, heart-opening, strengthening, frustrating, deeply moving, magical, unpredictable, connective, life-changing, revealing, grueling, fun, sacred, surprising, priceless, softening, adventurous, igniting, irritating, amazing & filled with wonder. Definitely not boring!
This is undoubtedly deep, personal work. It is not for those simply wanting to learn another modality of bodywork. This is a path that asks everything of those who enter, but gives everything as well to welcome you home to your Natural Self.
IS IT FOR YOU?
The questions to consider are:
Do you want to discover more of the Infinite Life that lives through you?
Are you willing to give up the ‘you’ that you have learned to be?
Are you willing to die to the old and be reborn to the new?
