Integrating Higher and Lower Self – A Six Day Azul Residential Retreat

Integrating Lower & Higher Self is an exploration of the lower and higher self. It is designed to explore and experience the nine matrixes of the lower self: gluttony, greed, sloth, envy, wrath, pride, lust, fear and deceit. As we come to understand the way the conditioned mind operates through these matrixes, we can unveil the masks that were created to protect us but inevitably have led to our suffering. Seeing with the eyes of honesty who we are and how we move lifts the veil of illusion and frees us to live from our higher self, which is our main source of wisdom and inspiration.

You will become aware of the many subtle ways your lower self affects your thoughts and actions in your daily life and will learn how the various masks you wear affect your behavior and relationship to the outside world. Accessing your higher self will result in a deeper connection with your own innermost guidance, knowing and wisdom, and in an increased ability to access your personal power.

“Dance strips us of the false self, beliefs, imprints that cover up our true self. The body cannot lie, so when we are able to listen through the body, we hear truth.” – Amara Pagano
