    Fri 27th – Sun 29th July 2012

    Millions obsess over it.   Thousands have died for it.   We all seek it.   Few will find it.

    Even fewer will live it.

    It is LOVE!

    It seems we are compulsively obsessed, yet slightly confused…about love. While many of us think we know love so well we often find it hard to be unconditionally loving.

    So what is love… actually?

    Where is love…exactly?

    And how do you love…precisely?

    * Is it something that should come naturally?   * Do we have to earn it?   * Or will it just show up?   * Can we expect to be loved?   * Or is that just the fortune of a fated few?   * Should we ‘feel’ love all the time or just occasionally, in some ‘emotional high’?   * And how are we to teach our children about true love in the face of so many illusions?


    During this exclusive weekend retreat with Mike George & Lucinda Drayton, you will explore:

    • The wrong turns that we take in our search for love
    • The one and only thing that blocks every human heart and stands in the way of our rediscovery of love
    • How to bring the light and power of love into all your relationships
    • Why you may not be aware that your heart has been sabotaged in many ways
    • Why happiness is impossible until you know the ‘truth about love’
    • The secrets of how to ‘feel’ love anywhere anytime
    • Why, in truth, you can never ‘fall’ in love

    “Infinite and yet indestructible, it is only when you understand LOVE that you will fully understand your life. Unlimited and yet invisible, it is only when you know LOVE that you will know how powerful you really are.” Mike George

    The Structure & Flow of the Retreat

    ASPECT One – WHAT is Love?
    Rediscovering the Power of the Heart

    Ask one hundred people, “What IS Love?” and it seems there are a hundred different answers! It appears that few know love as it truly is.  Perhaps that is why love so often seems to be lost in a stressful world filled with conflicted relationships. In this session: why love is lost in the mists of many illusions, why love cannot ever be ‘found’ wherever we look; what love is ‘in reality’, and what happens when love is present.

    ASPECT Two – WHERE is Love?
    Untangling our Emotions so that we may Feel Love

    With so much confusion about the true nature of love it’s no surprise we find it hard to recognise our own emotions and choose our feelings.  In this session: what’s is the difference between our emotions and feelings…exactly; why love is lost when we ‘emote’; how to ‘feel’ love anywhere anytime.

    ASPECT Three – WHY is Love?
    How to Play the Relationship Game

    While relationship is both the context and the fabric of all our lives how do we know love is present?  Why does love often disappear so rapidly after the honeymoon period?  In this session: what are the signs and symptoms of an authentically loving relationship; why what’s IN the way IS the way; love or fear – why are you together with another?

    ASPECT Four – HOW to Love?
    Bringing Love back to Every Day Life

    It’s only when we fully realise that we are the creators of our own destiny that we can restore our awareness that love is the only game in town.  Some say that we return to love or that love returns to us but, others say that ‘in reality’, love never left.  In this session: how to maintain the vision of love and ensure your decisions are shaped by love…despite those who would glorify all that is unloving!
