The Experience

The Gateway

The Gateway 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 experience

This Kensan Mindfulness retreat takes you through a foundational change in yourself and prepares the way for a totally new way of being in group. It’s a commitment to personal change and a practical experience of the harmony of a Collective MindOne-Body and Zero-Position.

Through Kensan, Mindfulness and Dialogue Circles, we will explore the very things that limit us, cause us suffering, and create disharmony in our group relationships. 

You will experience creating a new group culture, as we explore The 5 Values of deep listening, the suspension of certainty, a state of curiosity, respect for diversity, individual discernment within a group, welcoming all that arises and trust in the group.

What’s your experience?

What has been your experience of being in groups, whether that be family, work or play? Has it been harmonious, supportive and innovative, or has it been competitive, aggressive and limiting?

I was never shown how to be in a group, but from the day I was born I lived in group – from family, to school and eventually a workplace. Someone just assumed I knew, and I just assumed they knew. Nothing was further from the truth.

The Gateway Retreat is a unique gift to yourself, one that promises of a freer, more happy place in yourself – and a more harmonious and productive relationship with your groups, families and organisations.
