The REAL Retreat

(The Realization Experience thru Awareness Learning Retreat)

Finding yourself thru Realization

REAL Retreats are our signature retreats that put fun into the learning process. It aims to help you find out who you are and what have you not known yet in a journey of inner discovery. Realization is your ONLY true happiness. You will know once you arrive at it. Undoubtedly you will finally know what you have missed. It is not something mysterious or out of reach. Nor is it something found in the future. In fact, it is what that is missing now. Let the coming REAL Retreat unfold in you as it had for many others. A retreat that opens up to an amazing understanding that you have never known before. Welcome aboard.


REAL Retreat 28 Apr – 1 May 2018 (4D3N) theme

The Unknown Freedom


Moving Inward instead of forward

Each moment freedom is possible. Freedom awaits us. In actual fact, freedom never left us except that it was not yet known by us.  

Not the kind of freedom for us to arrive at or hope for. Those are our preferential desires which do not actually bring about true freedom. Preferences always leave us unsatisfied, not free. 

Freedom was never an experience to begin with. Freedom is not dependent on something or somewhere. Freedom IS. 

Join us in the coming REAL Retreat to find out the reality of freedom, where various activities and guided meditation sessions are designed to allow you to finally taste your own true freedom.
