6 1/2 Day Intensive Experiential Retreat with Robert Gonzales & Robert Krzisnik
We are inviting you on a journey of
We, the Roberts, are not only connected by our first names, but also by our core yearnings to let Life flow fully; by the work we do to support and enhance evolutionary processes; and by our spiritual histories that in both cases started off with Enlightenment Intensives, continued through various meditation practices and ultimately embraced the spiritual core of Nonviolent Communication.
We are both very excited and passionate about having created this intensive retreat, in which we, as a community, witness and support the embodiment of our deepest authenticity.
Fully experiential retreat
The main focus of the retreat will be on direct experiencing primarily through dyad work but also through individual and group processes, including body movement and integration time in nature. Facilitators will be there not to teach, but to offer guidance and support.
Intensity and dedication
This retreat will be held as a sacred time for our deepest Self. By “intensive retreat” we mean that:
– we will be working from around 7:00 in the morning to around 10:00 in the evening;
– we ask you to refrain from using internet (including email & cell phone), unless absolutely urgent, for the duration of the entire retreat;
– we will be inviting you, during breaks and free time, to keep your intention and focus on conscious inquiry into your deepest authenticity (rather than engaging in casual socializing).
Embracing what is
This is not a self-improvement workshop, in which certain aspects of ourselves would be perceived as needing change, fixing, or healing. The participants will be continuously encouraged to experience and embrace the Whole, rather than move from an “imperfect” state to a “better” one.
While this is not a classical Nonviolent Communication training, basic Nonviolent Communication skills of honest self-expression, empathic listening and self-empathy are required.
Therefore, we would like the participants to have had at least four (4) full days of training in Nonviolent Communication with a CNVC certified trainer.
