This retreat is dedicated to the cultivation of profound spiritual clarity and to the miracle of being utterly absorbed in the inner light of awakened mind. Many years ago, I left conventional life to pursue spiritual awakening. I knew that the way I perceived reality was shaped by conscious and unconscious fears, desires and limiting beliefs, and I wanted to see beyond these obscurations.
For decades I pursued the dream of clarity. Time spent on retreat was an important part of my journey. During those times of focused practice, I could cast aside the concerns of life and devote all of my energy to spiritual awakening and deep meditation.
If we are diligent on retreat, our hearts and minds open and become focused. Day after day our perception is increasingly liberated from the influence of fear and we become more and more absorbed in the mysterious inner light that continuously reveals the true majesty of life and the subtle inner workings of the cosmos.
The more our consciousness becomes clear the more clarity we want. Our growing passion for clarity fuels the intensity of our meditation. The intensity of our practice brings greater clarity of mind which inspires even greater intensity of practice. An upward spiral of accelerating awakening has begun. There is no way of knowing how deep any of us can go on a retreat like this. The structure of this retreat has been designed out of everything I’ve learned about what creates the most conducive atmosphere for awakening. I’m thrilled to have the chance to offer this opportunity to you.
- The retreat will be held largely in silence although it will include daily discussions with Jeff.
- You will engage in silent meditation, guided meditation, contemplation exercises, thought experiments, and journal writing.
- You will be encouraged not to make contact with anyone outside of the retreat for either personal or business reasons except in cases of emergency.
- All you have to do is meditate and be taken care of.
Our journey continues with the exploration of the role that language plays in shaping how we perceive reality. We will explore how words don’t just describe what is real, they create it and continually reinforce it. We will work together to intentionally discover how to use language in ways that change the reality that exists between us. Then we will explore how we can liberate each other by using language that supports our true potential.

"We were able to only do three days of this event. But the impact for me was most profound. On our day 4, integration day an awareness of the Truth arose in me and left me totally flummoxed. Just what I have been working for, for so many years. I am truly a different person than the one who started the retreat last Friday. Profound gratitude to Jeff and the team."
~ W. Francis.

"The retreat was eye opening and life-changing, giving me a new understanding of me as a soul, and deepening my relationship with it. Giving all day to meditation for a few days, rather than an hour a day for a prolonged period, has brought changes in me that are indescribable. I did not want it end!"
~ J. Aebi.
"This retreat was a wonderful and profound experience of sinking into the depth of Being. Experiencing blissful happiness and liberation, just abiding there, without needing anything. Even in the face of challenges from outside, like a noisy neighourhood."
~ J. van den Bogaard.
"The retreat came at the perfect time in my life. It was the calm at the end of an internal and external storm that led to deep insights and deepening Awareness of my True Self. Jeff has an ability to transmit deep truths that find a home in soul."
