Summer Retreat 2023 in Mexico
A Contribution to Peace - Individually, Collectively, and Eternally
with Ingo B. Jahrsetz, Magda Solé, and Jaume Mestres
We are presenting this retreat because we envision a world of peace.We dare to offer this in a situation where many individuals experience deep life crises, where the world is shattered by wars and exploitations, where the planet and all its nature suffers. We feel that these external conflicts reflect our inner worlds: “Which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below”, says an old hermetic law.We have the vision that it heals the whole evolutionary process when we as individuals become aware of our inner combats, of our brokenness, of shame and fear, and when we accept them in a healing mode. This means to ignite the fire of peace and an understanding what this means.Peace cannot be found individually when I see myself separated from the world. It is the “ego-for-myself-force” which causes the separation from close ones, from the world’s people and foreign cultures, from the earth and from heaven.To ignite the fire of peace means the understand that the “ego-myself” is just a phantasy nourished by fears of being lost, broken, and unloved, and by the fear of madness and death.Healing means learning. Healing means extending the consciousness to the unknown.Where the “ego-for-myself” creates fences and protection, the “I am” feels part of all the others, part of the nature and the mystery of spirit. Fear transforms to compassion and love.Igniting the fire of peace is what the vedic culture understands as “bodhi-chitta”, “sat-chit-ananda”, the awakening of truth, wisdom, and happiness.
After the retreat, Magda and Jaume offer a seven day's roundtrip through Mexico.
