Workshop Description: This 4 day teaching retreat is an opportunity for Path of Love graduates to connect and continue our journey of self-exploration in the Path of Love format, combining teaching, meditations, exposure work, and enquiry.
We are living in an increasingly complicated world full of trauma and separation, and this timely retreat focuses on the urgency to face the shadow, go within and find the peace and spaciousness that rests inside of us, like a still lake of consciousness…the still and silent power of the black essence.
This retreat will challenge the fundamental split and fear inside that keeps us in denial, as we explore the darkness that acts out in our lives and relationships. We will simultaneously uncover the exquisite peace and quietude that is our fundamental nature. Being neither stuck in denial nor driven by agitation, we can then be open to receive the guidance of Grace and source our actions from Presence and compassion.
“Rest in natural great peace, this exhausted mind, beaten helplessly by karma and neurotic thought, like the relentless fury of the pounding waves, in the infinite ocean of Samsara.” – Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche
This retreat will be held at the Osho Leela Meditation Center.
The mission of the Osho Leela Meditation Center, located in Boulder, Colorado, is to meditate, celebrate and share. They provide daily meditations, group processes, events, workshops, and celebrations to help people become more aware and present.
Turiya Hanover has extensive experience in leading personal development groups and trainings globally since 1973. Turiya has been trained in: Gestalt, Bioenergetics, Psychodrama, Family Therapy (V. Satir), NLP, Hypnosis, Somatic Experiencing™ (Peter Levine), Ego Psychology, Family Constellation, Enneagram and Astrology.
Turiya’s personal journey into human development started when she did her first encounter workshop in 1970, Germany.
In 1971, Turiya and her husband were part of developing the first German Humanistic Psychology Growth Centre, known as Zist.
The revelation and exploration of this Humanistic Psychology took Turiya by surprise. The internal shift that she experienced was so profound that her, and her husband, set on a new course of human exploration, which lead them to India. There, she discovered a revolutionary form of teaching from a mystic Indian man. Through a synthesis of Meditation and western psychology, she developed a unique approach that brings East and West together.
The sudden, unexpected death of her husband marked a turning point for Turiya. This experience deeply influenced her own personal search and how she works with people today.
Turiya’s work brings essential tools into our daily lives. Through years of experience in working with different cultures and thousands of people worldwide, recognising that same common thread, her work has now evolved around transforming old behavioural patterns and discovering new grounds and dimensions to live and to be.
Through her work arises a deep sense of reconciliation with your being and thus remember your passionate, curious and joyful inner nature.
Turiyas’ other great love is painting.
