The Oasis Inside – Retreat Details

Synopsis

This retreat is designed for people looking to take a break from their busy lives, in order to reconnect with their inner self, while enjoying a travel experience to a new destination.

The Retreat

The background preparation of the program starts six weeks prior to the commencement. We assign the participants into groups. Every group is required to make a presentation on a selected topic that is relevant to the training program. The group also shares the learnings from their real life experiences. This is followed by a Q&A and discussion.

Topics for Participant Presentations:

  • Extreme Emotions. Parenting & Culture. Taming our emotions.
  • Emotions Vs Feelings. Making wise choices.
  • Spiritual Philosophies
    • Choose two for comparison & discussion
    • One regional philosophy depending on location
    • Another from Zen, Buddhism, Tantra, Hinduism, Taoism etc
  • Misconceptions in Romantic Relationships
  • Healthy Habits during Emotional Change
  • Dating & Friendships during Emotional change
  • Healthy Self – Identity, Image & Worth

Topics are assigned on a first come first serve basis. Apply early to have more choices. Groups are assigned by common topics. You will be grouped with people/person with similar interest.
