About the Truth Serum Retreat: Spiritual Autonomy 

Spiritual Autonomy is about embodiment—it's where the rubber meets the road. Take time to discover things about yourself that you never knew.  Be willing to dive deeply into your spiritual nature and experience aspects of your very being that you can't describe in words. During these 7 sessions with Jac we will self-reflect, learn from, and support each other. There will be meditations, exercises, teachings, and conversations to help you fast track your spiritual maturity. You will have homework between some sessions where you practice taking full responsibility for your own inner process. Jac is there to guide you every step of the way.

Preparing for Your Online Retreat

As we shift from in-person residential retreats to online retreats you can take at home, you are asked to plan some details in advance that will support your experience. 

 

When you attend a residential retreat, practical details are managed for you. Your environment is conducive to your inner exploration. Online retreats are equally as resourcing for your body, mind, and spiritual journey when you take some time to plan your own support structures in advance. Take time to do these 5 things in preparation for your retreat and let the inward orientation begin. 

1. Meals

Plan what you will eat during the retreat. Will you pre-cook, order in, prepare your meals fresh? Make these decisions beforehand and take the necessary steps to stock up on whatever you will need. 

2. Nature, Walks, and Baths

How will you connect with nature? Where will you walk every day and is there a place you can sit quietly and observe something natural? If you have one, will you lounge in a bathtub?

3. Unplug

Put an out of office reply on your email accounts. Don't schedule social activities or any engagements during our retreat weekend. Turn off your phone. If you live with other people do your best to keep your attention focused within.

4. Notebook and Colors

Get yourself a nice notebook for you to jot down notes and to journal between sessions. Handwriting exercises our brain in many ways that typing does not. Do you like to draw or paint? When words cease their usefulness, paint, shapes, textures, movement, or color offer a non-verbal toolkit. Have you used artistic media in the past that has helped you express? Is there an artistic expression that nourishes you or helps you to relax? Stock up on whatever media and paper you might need to resource your process. 

5. Downtime

If your downtime is not filled with family obligations, plan to read spiritual material or listen to music that is beautiful to your ears. Steer clear of fiction in literature and film—the movie that is created by our own minds is more than enough material for us to explore!

These 5 measures are demonstrations of support and love towards you.
