Join international bestselling author Blake D. Bauer for five days of deep healing and self-care. Explore why suffering, disease and relationship problems are caused by years of hiding your true emotions, thinking negatively, and living in fear. Discover how your current struggles are logical cries from your body, soul and subconscious mind asking you to finally value yourself and the miracle of your life. Each day you’ll engage in meditation and qi gong healing exercises specifically designed to unlock stuck energy, blood, and emotion. This safe gathering will help you transform patterns of self-harm and clarify how to love yourself in practical ways that lead to deep self-worth, self-acceptance, self-respect, and self-confidence.

In this retreat, learn practical skills to:

  • Identify & heal the root cause of illness, anxiety, insecurity and depression
  • Stop making yourself wrong
  • Train your mind to find peace
  • Heal past wounds and traumas
  • Transform your limiting beliefs
  • Clarify your direction forward
  • Live more fully in the present
  • Unlock stuck energy, blood and subconscious emotion that is making you sick, unhappy or frustrated
  • Forgive yourself and others
  • Understand your life’s purpose
  • Transform and improve your relationships
  • Revitalize your physical body and health
  • Stop blaming or punishing yourself
  • Overcome self doubt, and learn to trust both yourself and life

Occasionally program sessions may go later into the evening.

This in-depth 5 night retreat is based on Blake D. Bauer’s book You Were Not Born To Suffer, which became the #1 bestselling spiritual title in Australia, has been translated into 10 foreign languages, and remains a top-selling spiritual and self-help book worldwide.
