Get ready for six intense days of ecstatic rebirth! This unique retreat offers participants the opportunity to design their own transformative experiences. You will leave with your own practical road map for real-life integration, plus benefits you can experience immediately — and for the rest of your life. This small, personal group workshop is for you if you are prepared and 100 percent willing to:

  • Determine the aspects of your life that are calling for healing and change.
  • Move toward healing and change on the very first day.
  • Commit to an action plan.
  • Take a giant leap forward in consciousness.
  • Help create and support a small, like-minded community committed to the same leap.

Raphael Cushnir creates a safe and gentle environment to help call forth your very best, using tools such as:

  • Emotional-release work that combines vipassana, metta, and tantric approaches.
  • Journaling and vision-boarding.
  • Dyadic and triadic communication process.
  • Movement and chanting.

The highlight of this retreat is designing a unique transformative experience all your own. You leave with a practical road map for real-life integration, plus benefits you can experience immediately — and for the rest of your life.

Special note: On Tuesday night, our group will host a Freestyle Dance Jam, with Raphael as DJ, as a gift for ourselves and everyone at Esalen. Remember to pack some loose-fitting attire and get ready to rock and roll, shake and swing, and let it all go!
