We at Orion Travels are so happy for you. Just being here you are at the top 1% of achievers in the world, looking for ways to become an even better person. We are proud to serve and being a part of your journey.
We believe our Premium Retreats are the best way to heal, meditate deeper, and transform your life in significant ways. Plus we do it in style, with lots of pampering.
You deserve to experience a Premium Retreat. If you didn't pamper yourself, rejuvenate, and heal, how would show up in the world, in the relationship, at work, for the family?
Yes, giving yourself the gift of a Premium Retreat is the best way to serve yourself and others around you; for sure!
Everyone wants a better life. Plants grow toward the sun, animals seek greener pasture, babies cry when hungry... we all do what we can to have a better life.
There is a problem though:
What makes a plant grow toward the sun is the same thing that drives an animal toward greener pasture, or a baby to cry: the instinct to survive.
One obvious fact of our present life is that we have survived our own past perils, right? Whatever we did in the past worked! From a survival perspective, our past has worked because we are here today.
This is why we instinctively repeat our own past, over and over. This repetition creates a longing within us, a longing that we experience as a desire to have a better life.
How do we create a better life when we are so driven to repeat what has worked in the past?
We must change our minds about ourselves. This is the goal of every religion, therapy, thought system, philosophy, education... Life itself is one huge laboratory where we experiment with our own thoughts, actions and experiences.
We change our experience in life by changing our actions, and we change our action by changing our minds about ourselves. Think about this carefully, as many people before us have.
The bottom line is that the most valuable thing you can do in your life is to change your mind about yourself. That is it!
The outside world is designed to exert pressure upon you, to change your mind for you... It turns out that only you can change your mind. Still, without a tool, or a method, this change is unlikely to occur.
Whether you stare at a dot on the wall for 10 days, or use sophisticated brain mapping equipment, you are using a system, a tool, something. We cannot exist in a void; we need something outside to know that the inside exists.
In our modern world, many people enjoy to opportunity to change in major steps that can be accomplished in multi-day retreats. These specially designed retreats are effective because you will be fully immersed in the process of changing.
Retreats work because we are removed from everyday activities, allowing us to focus entirely on the process of personal transformation. When we focus that intensely, with the proper guidance and tools, positive change is the natural result.
At Orion Retreats we go one step further: as long as we are going to take a few days to totally transform our lives, we might as well do it in style and be pampered.
We take care of every detail for you, so that you can relax and focus on you.
Why a Premium Retreat?
There is a notion that spirituality somehow goes with poverty. This notion is understandable, since most people who consider themselves to be on a spiritual path place most of their attention on an internal transformation, not on the attainment of external wealth.
What makes life itself possible, though, what really makes the world work as a laboratory for personal evolution is the sincere labor of countless people on the spiritual path. Yet, these people do not seek, and rarely get, any recognition for their contribution to the world.
This is why Orion Travels insists on the Premium motif for our Retreats. We want those who are on a spiritual path to be treated like royalty, to be pampered, to heal and transform within the best conditions possible.
Our retreats are all inclusive, meaning that everything will be handled for you. You wont have to worry about the typical stresses of traveling because we will take care of all the details for you. You pack your bags, we take care of the rest.
The locations where we hold retreats are carefully selected to produce the most healing and transformation. You will find that there is something very special about each place we visit, and that the primary theme of Retreat is linked to the location where it is held.
Who is this for?
Orion Travels Premium Retreats was conceived to serve those who need to heal and find themselves now.
The great Buddha already said it: there is suffering in life. People suffer, people carry deep pain within themselves.
Much of the pain has to do with what was done onto us, the injustices that others perpetrated against us. Another great deal of the pain has to do with what we have done onto others… stuff we still cannot accept ourselves for.
We call this type of hidden pain circumstantial pain, because it has to do with the circumstances we have lived; what we did, and what was done onto us.
We carry this load of pain within ourselves, although we are not aware of it, hence the idea of the unconscious. Much like an iceberg, we only notice the tip of the pain that we can observe, those are the consequences of the pain: poor health, poor relationships, job dissatisfaction, and poverty itself.
It is difficult to heal this type pain alone because:
- We have been conditioned to look outside of ourselves for solutions, not to the problem, but to the consequences of the problem
- Ultimately, we believe it will hurt to look within
- Deep within, meaning unconsciously, we actually believe there is no solution to the pain, that we are condemned for eternity, so we keep on going around the outside looking for patches to cover the consequences of the pain. Such is the power of “forgetting”
There is a solution, of course. There is a simple way out of the pain. The solution begins with a process called reframing. We come to understand that the circumstances we lived are not that important or special. The point is that we had to experience some form of pain in order to forget who we are. Only by first forgetting, could we learn to remember… remember who we are.
Once we see our past not as a mountain of pain, but as an opportunity to participate in the greatest adventure of them all, forget who we are so we can learn to remember, we naturally see what we have done to others as mere and simple mistakes to be corrected, and we have no problem forgiving others for what they have done to us.
This process removes the load of pain from us, what we sometimes call the core pain. The removal of the core pain exposes the core light, and that light is what allows us to live the life we have always dreamed of living.
The above explanation is simple to understand, but very difficult to actually implement and live fully. Most of what needs to change for us to heal is unconscious, meaning that we are not even aware of the true causes of our problems.
It makes sense to us all that if we want to fix a problem its cause must be found and remedied. When it comes to our lives, because of the difficulties I explained above, we frequently default to the attempt to change our outside circumstances. We try to develop wealth by working harder, be healthier by taking medicine, improve relationships by finding the right person, and be happier with our jobs by finding the right job for us.
It is important that we all have the opportunity to discover for ourselves what does not work… meaning that no amount of external change will actually produce the truly intended results we actually seek. This does not mean, of course, that we should abandon our loved ones and not work. What it does mean is that “taking care of things” by itself will never produce the truly intended result that we sometimes call “happiness”.
For 24 years now I have done hypnotherapy and coaching with people and couples who had already “tried everything” and still suffered. People used to call me the “therapist of last resort”, meaning that when all else failed they called me. I came to understand and appreciate that reference.
If you believe that improving your health depends on finding a better medicine, being wealthier depends on working harder, having a great relationship depends on finding the right person, or that your career satisfaction depends on finding a better job, these retreats may not be for you.
If, on the other hand, you believe that all of the above is important, but not the true solution to your only problem, then these retreats are a must for you. People who benefit from the work we do have already tried everything, except themselves.
Are you ready to look within? Are you ready to be responsible toward your life and others, but at the same time realize that how you see yourself is what really needs to change? Are you ready to make that change? Have you tried other approaches only to feel frustrated? Are you read to open your heart and look within?
Then our Retreats are right for you!
