Autumn Equinox Retreat - Megève 2019

Je vais essayer d’être concis mais je ne peux pas réellement contenir ma joie et mon excitation… J’ai le bonheur de vous annoncer que j’organise ma TOUTE PREMIÈRE retraite de yoga, en collaboration avec Quintessence Retreats. Situé à 1h30 de Genève, dans les splendides montagnes françaises, à Megève précisément, c’est la Ferme du Passieu qui nous recevra pour cette micro retraite de quatre jours. Un menu végétarien fraîchement préparé par un chef, un lieu idyllique, trois heures de yoga par jour en plus d’activités sportives et extérieures signées Quintessence Retreats. Et pour couronner le tout, une cérémonie de pleine lune (je ne vous en dis pas plus) qui clôturera ce magnifique séjour.

Autumn Equinox Retreat

Marius Diserens x Quintessence Retreats

11 Sept. – 15 Sept. 2019
Check-in à 17h
Check-out à 11h

Thème

Alors que l’été touche doucement à sa fin, l’arrivée de l’équinoxe d’automne nous invite à retourner à notre “soi” profond, à faire “l’état des lieux” de nos rêves et intentions de l’année en cours. La nature nous pousse à récolter les graines que nous avons planté en début d’année et contempler le fruit de notre travail, ainsi que de lâcher prise sur ces choses qui ne nous servent pas, que nous tirons derrière nous.  Notre thème clé sera « observe, accept, release, transform », qui se cristallisera à travers les cours de yoga + une cérémonie de pleine lune en fin de séjour. Plus on se connecte avec les cycles de la nature, plus on se sent en connection avec soi-même, aligné.e avec son soi profond.

Lieu

La Ferme de Passieu, à Megève, dans les montagnes d’Haute-Savoie. Un petit coin de paradis où la nature verdoie et qui vous offrira non seulement une énorme bouffée d’air frais mais aussi un lieu aux énergies puissantes qui vous aidera à profiter pleinement de cette retraite. Un endroit propice au lâcher-prise et à la guérison. Une ancienne ferme totalement rénovée pour accueillir un espace commun magique, une piscine intérieure avec jacuzzi et hammam, un patio extérieur, un espace pour les cours de yoga et encore d’autres merveilles à découvrir…

Love


What’s the Universe and what’s the secret to attracting everything you want!

I am almost sure this is not the first time you are reading the word “Universe” on the Internet. I am not going to explain why this concept has taken us all by storm or how life changing believing in its power would be for you. No. What I want to do with you today is try to explain what it is and how to understand it in a capitalist society that is always asking more of yourself. Efficiency. Tirelessness. Strength. And so on…

Put simply, the Universe is the energy of love, an energy that is within us and round us, an energy that connects us all together and empower us. It is a magnitude, a presence, that we feel within ourselves and that helps us in the achievement of our purpose. You do realise you have a mission on this Earth? Well the Universe it the energy that helps you carry on this mission, this purpose, with love and compassion.

You might have experience synchronicity at some point in your life, right? Not a mere coincidence, no. Not if it comes round when you actually think about, or if it shows up repeatedly in your life. There is a meaning in those “events”. A Course in Miracles says “You need not do anything. You don’t need to work miracles or make anything happen. You merely align with your true love nature and allow your eyes to see what you desire.” There you have it – miracles are a habit, and the habit of simply being in presence of love and joy, releasing the pressure and surrender is what aligns us with the Universe. It is the Universe.

The Universe is the energy of love, an energy that is within us and round us, an energy that connects us all together.

Attract everything that you wants...

There are multiple ways we try to control our lives and when we are what we sometimes call “control freaks”, well, we are usually the ones that deny it the most.

Consider those bullet points. If you could tick most of them, you might want to read what’s next…

1. Planning everything thoroughly, not letting space for the unexpected
2. Trying to fix things and people, instead of embracing who/how they are
3. Controlling to such extents that you’re starting to develop addictive patterns – food, alcohol, work, self-destructive actions just to name a few – to avoid the main situation
4. Chronic stress, denying ourselves from joy, seclusion, physical conditions, etc.
5. Praying for outcomes when you should be praying for the highest good for all
6. Being so committed to a goal that you’re ready to destroy your way there in order to achieve it

Those traits highlighted here are just manifestations of resistance in our lives – ways to protect ourselves from life instead of trusting the Universe, its love and protection.

There is something we hardly touch on
in daily conversations and introspections. Resistance.

The fact we all resist happiness, freedom, love and support from the Universe.

This resistance explains why we are stuck in patterns that do not bring us joy and evolution; it keeps us from thriving.

The secret is simple: the absence of resistance will turn you into an attractor of what’s great. Your energy will become an attractor for greatness, cause it sends a signal out into the Universe that you’re ready to manifest this love and positive energy. Your energy is aligning with the energies of joy and love, giving away a message of readiness.

Accept this state of being, whatever that may be. Embrace the difficulties, the challenges, the barriers, but do not let yourself get overwhelmed by them. Once that’s done, you’ll see that old wounds and issues will start to disappear, problems and obstacles vanishing from your great path.

Why? Because resistance comes from judgements and expectations we have about ourselves. Through acceptance and the realisation that we are greater than what holds us back, we heal judgment and let go of resistance. You’re just accepting who you are – you are showing love to yourself, which is the greatest present you can make to yourself. Life becomes fun, it flows. The vibration of love is so strong that it can change how you view the world, your life and others, just as well as your entire living experience.

Why do we resist love ?

Marianne Williamson wrote in A Return To Love “It is our light, not our darkness, that most frighten us”. And this has never been more true that today.

We resist love cause we have an ego, which is the complete opposite – it is fear, judgment, separation and anxiety. We are socially and culturally educated to rely on this ego as a source of safety and protection against a world of disappointment, suffering; we are afraid to hurt.

We are afraid to express our light because we live in a society where it is considered “better” and “safer” to keep our true self within, to lock our emotions in, to internalise. Well, the good thing is that this is changing. And you want to be part of the change. How could I protect myself if I rely on love, on the Universe, on something out there than I cannot grasp?

What we resist will persist darlings – you do have a choice to release resistance, cause releasing requires healing, learning and transforming; you have to be willing to look at your patterns without judgment, surrender to the love of the Universe.

Are you ready? Let’s release resistance together through those easy steps.

Accept and Acknowledge your resistance

We have to recognise our resistance, acknowledge it, because we cannot possible release something we do not consider present and active. There’s a duplicity in our brains – between peace that wants you to release and ego that pushes you into judgment and control. If we accept we are addicted to fear, it will release us from the detours it urges us to take on our spiritual path. We can start forgiving ourselves from holding on to old patterns. It’s a continuous job, and you’ll just need to show love, kindness and acceptance to yourself quickly and repeatedly.

Surrender to spiritual guidance

We are programmed, from childhood on, to believe in the fear of the world, to act on a survival base – this way, we block harm but also resist love by trying to control our lives as much as we can. All this trying to make something happen, all this control and manipulation is actually creating resistance from your intuitive voice, your connection to this power far greater than yourself. It is in the absence of that resistance that we remember the truth of who we are, that we realign and that we reconnect to the Universe, the energy of love.

A simple mantra you could repeat yourself to help in your surrender process:

I surrender my plans and goals to the Universe. I know that the Universe has my back, I accept spiritual guidance, I know that there is a plan far greater than mince. I step back and let the energy of love to flow in.

Let go of judgment

This is our strongest weapon. We believe it helps us protect our vulnerability and the essence of our existence. We fear that if we let our guard down, we’ll be under attack from all fronts; we fear that if we start loving and act upon it, we’ll be taken advantage of. But this judgment, of yourself and of others, actually separates you even more from the energy of love.

Love can actually look much more terrifying to us that fear. Cause we believe love opens the gate to suffering, emotions, unfulfilled expectations, etc. We feel like love is uncertain, that love is susceptible to more pain. But this is wrong. Act with love and it will resonate round you. Love is the antidote to judgment and to fear.

Choose joy and love instead of fear

This is simple. The more joyous we are the more light we shine upon this world and the people round us. You’ll see that as soon as you resonate with love and acceptance, people will not doubt your power anymore, they’ll feel good round you, empowered to shine their own positive energy through.

Joy is such a high frequency that it gives us and the people round us the energy to show up for our dreams, to serve our purpose with grace and love. Joy is a creative energy, joy is inspirational, joy is a release system. Welcome worthiness, acceptance and know that you are entitled to feeling good too. Pain, struggle, sweat are not requirements when it comes to success or a meaningful life.
