YOUR TRUE IDENTITYwith Miranda Macpherson, 23rd to the 28th of May, 2022
23rd to 28th May, 2022
You are invited to join Miranda Macpherson on a deeply transformative residential 5 day retreat full of profound spiritual teaching, supported self-inquiry, meditation, chanting and prayer.
Living a meaningful, fulfilling and graceful life requires you to relax out of your personality with its fears, concerns and limitations, and journey deeper into the luminous presence at the core of your being. Connecting more substantially to the Source of real love, clarity, peace and joy within you brings the true resolution to the obstacles you face. It awakens the precise guidance you need to embody your unique talents and gifts deeper into our world.
This retreat offers a rare opportunity to substantially shift your core center of gravity, stabilise your realisation and live an authentic life free of dominion from insecurity and fear. These five days provide a nurturing container to leave distractions behind and journey into the themes that matter most to you.
Together, we will practice relaxing anything that limits you from abiding in the luminous love and awareness that is our true identity. Compassionately opening our hearts to all we find, we will open into ever deepening freedom, and how the insights you find can be embodied into tapestry of your life.
Through holistic inquiry, meditation and devotion we will explore:
* Deepening your practice of ego relaxation
* Grounding in the true support that always IS
* Unwinding your core ego identity and automatic responses
* Returning to natural openness and clarity
* Embodying authentic Being
* Express your gifts into the world with grace
The format is experiential and powerfully transformative. Miranda will share new practices to help you function in daily life from inner guidance rather than conditioned patterns of mind. She will guide you on how to surrender, ask and listen, and give expanded teachings on the practice of meditation, devotion, prayer and self-inquiry.

KARMA YOGA ~ Giving of service
Moulin de Chaves is a non profit Association. Everyone who comes here on retreat contributes one hour of their time each day towards the running of the Moulin. This may be anything from washing up, veggie chopping, cleaning, or gardening. We thank you in advance for helping us in this way.
The Moulin de Chaves operates as a French registered Non Profit Association (loi 1901). In order to maintain this status, all activities are offered as a service to Association members. The annual subscription of €10 allows us to offer events at the Moulin for the lowest possible cost. Without membership, we would have to operate as a profit-oriented, tax-paying organization.
