Non-Dual Awareness, Foundation to the Helping Relationship: Conversations on the Edge of Silence

A five-day residential workshop-retreat in the hills of East Bali for both aspiring and experienced therapists, counsellors, and coaches. This 30-hour workshop will radically enhance the quality of your work with clients in powerful, gentle, and profound 'Conversations on the Edge of Silence'. Participants will deepen their own embodiment of non-dual awareness, while enlivening this liberating backdrop to experience in the relational field. We will learn how to situate client outcomes and challenges in ways of thinking and feeling that naturally resolve themselves as we see through them to the field of pure awareness in which ultimately all experience is reflected. Location: Nirarta Centre for Living Awareness, Sidemen, Bali Date: 9 – 15 March 2023
