Jumping in CR

This week long retreat led by Paula Tursi is designed to bring out your true voice and give you the tools you need to live the life you might only have dreamed about.

As spiritual beings, how can we meet anyone in our power if we can’t define that power? When we are not clear about our purpose we feel frustrated and uninspired. When we know who we are and where we are going we can live a life of meaning. It is only then we can be the people we were meant to be. This course will help you gain this clarity and show you how to bring it into action!

During this 7 day & 7 nights event  we will:

  • Move the locked prana in our bodies using yoga, breathing practices and guided meditation.
  • Use Jungian shadow work to uncover the most pervasive blocks hindering you from living our purpose
  • Be guided through several types of meditation to set a clear purpose for your life.
  • We will set goals that will be witnessed by the group, create a time line and a course of action which will lead us to realizing not just a direction, but how to get there.
  • You will leave with  a plan of action that will aid you in bringing your purpose to the world!

In this Workshop we will work together to help discover your true voice and your hidden nature. James Hillman, a well published Jungian psychologist, calls this purpose our Daemon. The yogis have referred to it as our dharma, or  “purpose” of why we are here in this life.

Hillman states that “the daemon accompanies us from birth, bringing with it an agenda which influences our subsequent life”. Once we find our Daemon, or our “blueprint for life”, we move with ease, fully in our power and with the authenticity we need to put ourselves out in the world. We gain the awareness required to sustain or find clear and healthy relationships, in the work place, with our friends, family or our beloved.

Held at the magical Anamaya Resort in Montezuma, Costa Rica.

I was able to let go of so many attachments and felt crazy amounts of energy.  I loved listening to the things that Paula had to teach and the experiences that she had.  I loved that she was open about her life too and so approachable.  Paula made me feel like she cared about me and saw me for me. – NB

I’m so happy I came on this retreat. It was life changing and gave me access to things that were lingering beneath the surface that I needed the energy of the group to release. The small and well-selected group, the setting, the content, and the supporting yoga and meditation classes, not to mention the rejuvenating food served at Anamaya, has made me feel new as an infant. – LR

 The work was challenging but worth all of the work. I cannot believe how different I feel, so much lighter and free. – KD

“It was an amazing experience. Paula Tursi is brilliant and we were in the most beautiful setting. It was an incredible journey.” – Jessica Bundy

“Paula was a huge inspiration and it was an honour to be in the presence of her insight and wisdom for a full month. You can tell she speaks deeply from her heart, which is one filled with love, compassion and honesty.” – Elyse Silverman
