About this retreat

This retreat theme continues from the Easter long weekend.

The ego was never intended to be the master of the body, but its loyal and obedient servant. The body, as opposed to the ego, desires pleasure, not power. Bodily pleasure is the source from which all our good feelings and good thinking stems. Alexander Lowen, physician and psychotherapist

Understanding that our bodies are the source of wisdom is a profound insight. It’s the foundation on which all the practices of the Integration stream of meditation rest. These unique and valuable exercises give you the tools to feel yourself an integral part of your body so that you feel at home in your body. Your thinking, emotions and instincts can live harmoniously together, supporting each other, united in your body.

To do this you need to learn the language of your body – your feelings – your sensations and emotions. And treating emotions as positive or negative, which psychology does, is to do untold violence to our emotional life. These practices are based on the understanding that all emotions have a reason and purpose for existing, and they give you the skills to use the entire spectrum of your emotional life wisely and well.

The retreats at Kurlana Sanctuary this year will give the opportunity to learn all the practices of the Integration stream of meditation and how to tailor them to your individual needs.
