Rediscover Your Core
- A retreat program designed to deeply explore and sustainably transform guiding beliefs and truly re-discover your core.
As U Time, we believe in a holistic approach. Our approach is to target the mind, body and soul as one, analysing the entirety of your being as one.
Every morning starts with a conscious movement session, in order to connect with your body and make contact with your inner world and feelings. These movement sessions are there to gain insight into barriers and be aware and present in that moment.
During the basic training in Transactional Analysis we analyse guiding beliefs and explore other options that yield different behavior, thoughts and emotions in relation to experiences of life.
This so-called 101 training also provides access to all the other training courses TA offers worldwide, since you will receive a certificate officially recognized by the International Transactional Analysis Association and the European Association for Transactional Analysis.
We have chosen to work at a relaxed pace, so that the concepts can sink in and connect to the knowledge the participants already have.
While being in retreat, you can focus on releasing, slowing down and finding inner silence. You will feel nourished while enjoying an hour-and-a-half Ayurvedic massage, a connection with your inner knowledge through a Shamanic ritual, all day vegetarian food and plenty of time for nature and just being.
You will learn to use positive and healthy habits, to take a step in your professional development and to reconnect to your full potential as a human.
