Living Deliberately on Purpose, Knowledge and Joy 2017-06-16T13:37:36+00:00


This retreat is offered for the first time by Mita to all seekers and spiritual self-explorers, including Buddhists from all traditions who want to integrate and step up the lifelong practice of mindful awareness to create a life of inner peace, purpose, fulfillment and joyful servicef or the immeasurable benefit of all sentient beings. We are all born with the primordial potential to be a refuge and light unto ourselves. Our primordial impulse is to know ourselves and realize our sacred connection with the universe experientially.

Women need solitude and free time away from the constant demands of family and work to discover their creative self, renew their spiritual connection and find their unique ‘voice’

~There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.~ Anais Nin

This is a weekend of Experiential and Deep Reflections Workshop, designed for Women and Men on a conscious personal growth and/or engaged spiritual path. It is also an Introduction to the Primordial Path of waking up to our own Inner Knowing, Inspiration, Intuition and Intelligence to find and live our authentic calling and purpose in the world. The goal is to expand consciousness beyond the known, heighten awareness of one own body-mind-spirit, break-free of unhealthy social and gender conditionings, discover one’s unique role in the vast multi-dimensional tapestry of life and relax resistances to becoming the spontaneous, playful, curious, creative beings we all are meant to be!!!


  • Centering and Basic Meditation/mindfulness
  • Self Introduction: Personal journey, where we are now (Empathic listening)
  • Introducing The Primordial Path of Self-Enlightenment (ancient and original to Buddhism
  • Unfolding our natural energetic blueprint/ beliefs that block it
  • Walking this path of Inner knowing, Intuition and primordial Inquiry
  • Buddha’s Noble 8 fold path, grounding the first three steps to Knowledge
  • Mandala of Life Art
  • Transforming Self Healing Society
  • Exercise: Contemplative Inquiry
  • Developing Authentic Self (beyond ego & egolessness)
  • Healing & Touching The Sacred
  • Appreciative Inquiry/ Personal Reflection
  • Energetic exercises to clear vibration
  • Co-creating a learning & engaged community of practice

This will be a Contemplative, Co-Creative and Personally Meaningful Workshop, which is meant to be a gathering of women from any belief and background, interested in self-transformation, Universal Knowledge, Self-inquiry, Conscious Evolution, and Self-inspired humanitarian work in the world. Each session will be followed by open reflections and questions. Get inspired and envision a life full of wonder, imagination, passion, energy, knowledge, wisdom, unbounded creativity and joy! Look forward to our sacred gathering of spiritual sisters!

We will learn how to stay with our experience, no matter how difficult, confusing or painful it gets, stay in the mystery and uncertainity with ease, flow, grit and grace and live a luminous cretive second life from the core of our being. Enlightenment is fun, once we learn to tap into our feminine intuition, wisdom and skill through practice of mindful awareness.

Couples on a conscious relationship path are welcome. Ask for couples discount (we can accept only two couples).
