The Gateway Retreat is a 6-day immersion experience that teaches the mindset, values and way-of-being needed to create harmonious, inclusive and wise groups. Experience being able to express openly, listen deeply and accept others without fear or favour.
The Gateway Retreat was an experience like no other - a retreat where all my beliefs, behaviours, attitudes and patterns came up for timely review and deep investigation. The way in which this happened was unlike anything I have experienced before, especially considering the retreat doesn’t teach ‘tools’ or ‘techniques’; Rather, it calls us forth to a whole new way of being.
Kensan makes me realise that I don’t want to die wondering!
The Gateway was a call to this lone wolf to return to the pack. To return to a fuller and more natural way of being with myself, and being in relationship. A way to fully live and trust this one wild and precious life!
I arrived at this Kensan retreat having a healthy level of awareness and experience working with people. This retreat made shifts in me that showed me how subtle and deep my beliefs were, and how unaware I can be.
You must do this before the sand runs out in the hourglass!
I found a deep reflection of myself which I’m confident will stay with me. A reminder and remembering of my natural state, which I forget in our manufactured society.
After so many years of looking, Kensan taught me how to see. This week changed my life forever. The world would be an amazing place if we all practised Kensan. Do this, and make your world, and the world a better place.
The Gateway Retreat is a uniquely designed ‘threshold experience’ that a person can only do once in their life. It’s akin to traversing a passage to a new level of personal understanding and group harmony. Are you ready to step through the gateway?
Wisdom appears when we are willing to be together in patience, acceptance and curiosity
