Wherever I am, I'm home. Home is the path of a seeker.

He asked: "Aren't you afraid to travel the world alone?"

I said: "I am the world alone."


Sam and I


We are taught about the world out there but the knowledge of

self reflection, an understanding of own lives is left out.

A baby forming in a womb is not asked:

"What"s your name?"

No, we will pick the name, as if you are a thing.

"Why you are here?"

No, you are a baby, you don't know! We will tell you! We have right to do so, you are our child!

"How can I help you with your purpose?"

What? We will tell you what we expect to be your purpose, because we know what gives you social rewards. That will make our lives easier.

"Tell me all you know about your your past".

Oh, no! You had no past, you just came, from nowhere...


 Here is your chance to be asked and to find your answers !

Created by The Retreat N’ Rise Foundation

The purpose of the Retreat N’ Rise Foundation is to provide meeting places for creative people around the world,

and a variety of support from financial aid to a guidance for personal changes and growth. 

 Our aim is to provide fully paid short term group retreats and longer term residency for all creative seekers.

 As a result of personal changes leading to truth, beauty and giving, participants

would return to own communities awaken and ready to create.

Being a human needs to pay-off!

 Did anyone teach you that feelings are not emotions?

So important!

Feelings are the states of the timeless mind - the awareness of own being and all what comes from it:

1. feeling the truth in all contexts

2. knowing the law of the universe.

3. feeling love (not falling in love)

4. feeling interested (not anxious)

5. intuiting —intentions of the living beings

6. feeling own and other beings presence

7. feeling the brightness of light in others

8. connection with others, people, animals, plants, telepathy

Feelings at times feel as if they would be outside of the body, where the body is peaceful, unusually peaceful.
