I felt like I was stuck making the same mistakes over and over in my life on a personal level and needed something to shift.
I was extremely nervous about attending this retreat because I knew it would bring up personal issues that are difficult for me to face but at the same time, I was excited because I didn't know what to expect and loved the idea of facing this head-on with an open heart giving myself a nudge out of my comfort zone.
Arun was able to help me face these issues I'd tried to deal with before with previous therapists but to go deeper into these feelings and understand how to connect with myself and accept all parts of my personality.
I'm now able to recognise how I'm really feeling on a day-to-day basis and give myself what I need in that moment. I used to seek reassurance from other people but now I've learnt how to be my own 'best friend' and love and support myself which is incredibly empowering. I've learnt to listen to that voice of self-doubt and reassure myself rather than letting these feelings fester and destroy myself which has, in turn, improved relationships with others including my partner and children.
The whole retreat was a great experience. Arun created a safe space for me to explore myself and take this next step in my journey of self-discovery.
If you are someone who is feeling stuck in life and wants to break old habits in order to move forward in a positive and confident way but are unsure exactly how to do it then I highly recommend one of Arun's retreats. It has been the most empowering and life-changing thing I've done. I am forever grateful to Arun for guiding me to a better place emotionally and mentally but also grateful and proud of myself for trusting my instincts and having the courage to want to make that positive change in my life.
