61/2-day intensive experiential retreat

we are inviting you to a journey of

∞ direct experiencing, sensing and being,
∞ embodying our deepest authenticity,
∞ venturing beyond head-centered thinking to reclaim wholeness
∞ witnessing the Mystery of existence unfold

with Robert Gonzales and Robert Krzisnik

We, the Roberts ;-), are not only connected by our first names, but also by our core yearnings to let Life flow fully; by the work we do to support and enhance evolutionary processes; and by our spiritual histories that in both cases started off with Enlightenment Intensives, continued through various meditation practices and ultimately embraced the spiritual core of Nonviolent Communication.
We are both very excited and passionate about having created this intensive retreats, in which we, as a community, witness and support the embodiment of our deepest authenticity. We fully agree with participants of the pilot Awakening to Life Intensive in 2014, who said that it was a retreat to „live and die for“.

Fully experiential nature of retreat

The main focus of the retreat will be on direct experiencing primarily through dyad work but also through individual and group processes, including body-work and integration time in the nature. Facilitators will be there not to teach, but to offer guidance and support.

Intensity and dedication

This retreat will be held as a sacred time for our deepest Self. By „intensive retreat“ we mean that:
– we will be working from around 7:00 in the morning to around 22:00 in the evening;
– we ask you to refrain from using internet – including e-mail – and telephones, unless absolutely urgent, for the duration of the entire retreat;
– we will be inviting you to, during breaks and free time, keep your intention and focus on conscious inquiry into the deepest authenticity (rather than engaging in casual socializing).

Embracing what is

This is not a self-improvement workshop, in which certain aspects of ourselves would be perceived as needing change, fixing, healing. The participants will be continuously encouraged to experience and embrace the Whole, rather than move from an „imperfect“ state to a „better“ one.


While this is not a classical Nonviolent Communication training, basic Nonviolent Communication skills of honest self-expression, empathic listening and self-empathy are required.
Therefore we would like the participants to have had at least four (4) full days of training in Nonviolent Communication with a CNVC certified trainer.


The working language of the retreat will be English.
Number of Participants

The number of participants for this seminar is limited to 40. This is mainly for 2 reasons:
1/ We want all participants to be able to sit comfortably in one big circle in the big room at the venue. 40 is the number that we estimate, where this will be given.
2/ This is going to be a very intense retreat, so we would like everybody to stay at the retreat centre over night. 40 is a number that the retreat centre can easily hold with leaving the space for some people staying in single rooms.


Since there are some specifities with this training, the registration form is more extensive than usual. Please click here to register.

Once the registration is submitted, please make the initial payment of €300. The final payment is due on 15 April 2016.
