Truth Serum Retreat 

"The Joy of Giving" 

February 26–28th and March 14th, 2021

Jac's invitation to the retreat:

The Joy of Giving retreat is an exploration of the Heart. The topic itself requires us to be fluid in our approach as we navigate into our heart centre, expanding the inner heart space. Inviting love and freedom requires us to throw off limiting beliefs and ideas so that our life is an expression of divine love in action.

During the retreat there will be some time dedicated to focusing positive attention on and for the greater good. Practicing selfless service in action will give positive attention to the planet, benefit the health and wellbeing of humanity, and help spread peace among all peoples.

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.
