This year, our summer retreat this will take place at a magical place in Mexico, near Veracruz. Heaven and earth will meet there. A few places are still available. May we invite you to come with us on this journey which will take you some steps away from your usual environment? Bringing you close to yourself, connecting with wonderful people, preparing for the experience of oneness with all beings in deep respect of all differences. We would love you to come with us on this journey. The work of this retreat is especially close to our hearts. In the distance to the familiar often new gates open, individually, collectively, the sacred. We will meditate with you, do holotropic breathing and ethnotherapeutic work. We will be with you in silence.

Our planet is suffering on many levels. Its ecological balance is on the brink of a break-down. This means that our earth is at risk to become uninhabitable. This is an existential danger for our nature and for all human beings. Our nature is on the verge of dying, plants and animals disappear, many humans feel threatened to death and a clash of powers with terrorism, revolts, and wars is increasingly shaking outer and inner worlds. To reverse and to heal this process of destruction requires committed cooperation and a kind of psycho-spiritual synergy between individuals and the states all over the planet. Fortunately, there are many people all over the world, working individually or in smaller and bigger groups, trying to contribute to this transformation. Ignorance can transform into respect, envy, and greed into gratefulness, hate and fear into empathy and compassion. This process needs courage, trust, and community. Ingo B. Jahrsetz, Magda Solé, and Jaume Mestres as the facilitators invite you to this transformative process: this summer in a more intimate format of a group. In the upcoming years, maybe this work can be extended. In the 10 days of the retreat we’ll work with meditation, Holotropic Breathwork and common sharing, with Systemic Constellations, and a special process of deep meditation.

The retreat will take place where the richness and beauty of nature invites us to contact the mystery of life. We’ll be at the tropical ocean coast, in the midst of the rain forest’s wildlife. It is easy in this surrounding to become aware that we are part of nature and its cosmic cycles. To experience us in this close surrounding of nature may contribute to an understanding of how important our cooperation with the natural forces is but also how important it is to contribute to the creation of synergy between humans and nature but also between the energies of the ego and the universal self.

For us facilitators it feels as being called because of its urgency. We live in a world of all-connectedness, oneness and deep separateness, violent splits, and distractedness. And we know from the encounter and our work with many people in different parts of our world how they are suffering from this present situation. We feel torn apart: On the one side we feel the increasing closeness and intimacy of us all-together and on the other side there are the different kinds of ego-centered and violent energies. We observe this in the so called “outer world” of politics and socio-cultural difficulties but many people feel these splits also in their psyche. There they cause individual conflicts and deep distractedness from themselves, and at the same time an unquenchable zest for the realization of life’s beauty, for love without conditions and reliable peace.

Fortunately, we have the privilege of belonging to a transpersonal community that takes us on a collective journey of peace and compassion with the whole world and the people around us, together we will create this world full of powerful energies of love and peace that will influence without doubt and will reach all the souls of the planet who are currently going through painful and complicated situations.Communion retreat (from Latin communio: whole, together, completely) 

We have been doing retreats and trips for years but this time something very special and unique awaits us. The place where we are going to be has such peculiar characteristics that when Alexander von Humboldt was there two centuries ago, he was the first to explain the fundamental functions of the forest in the ecosystem and climate, both the ability of trees to store water and enrich the atmosphere with its humidity, and the protection they give to the ground as well as its cooling effect. In Veracruz he receives homage.
