"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
— Dr. Howard Thurman
The most concrete way of impacting the world around us, is to start through individual transformation. Understanding our true potential leads to more thoughtful living, and positive impact on society.
In this gathering, the program will challenge participants to explore the depths of our connection with body and mind — combining soft and hard skills sessions through work and play. Immersed in nature and with purposeful sensory design, we will mindfully push our boundaries to creatively express who we are and who the world is calling us to be.
Human Awakening is built on four themes, which each compile of related topics:
Health & Wellness: Understanding the mind & body, transcendence and spirituality, Conscious and unconscious mindfulness, Health through food and movement, Art of meditation, Stimulating our cognitive capacities with the balance of fasting/cleansing and rich ingredients.
