Holigral Retreat for Authentic Self

About This Event

By way of definitory moments, the modern human being dissociates and fragments it´s inner self and thus, looses important connection with one self and the world around us. This body/mind phenomena, creates patterns of emotions, behaviours and relations which inhibits a healthy life, clarity and peak performance at any level or any area of life -even constraining our spiritual growth. Contrary to the idea of ascencion, any human needs to bring back to the here and now this lost aspects of self in order to achieve wholeness, to be properly embodied!

The Holigral Method delivers powerful and insightful processes of self applied patters of questions which are crafted to create an open eyes navigation of our mentalscapes in order to resolve, understand and optimise any area of need for our lives to flow easily and alligned with our higher purposes.
Our retreat is thought for executives whose lifestyle demands evergrowing stresses and fast decision making processes in highly competitive environments. Feel free to ask about our extensive experience in facilitating programmes for corporations, mental health patients, spiritual seekers and private groups.

"I think you are aware of some big shifts which took place last weekend, I am just amazed at how different I feel and the process is still working with the odd wobble here and there. It was interesting yesterday; I met up with a friend who said my face looked different and then said `I know it sounds strange but it looks Clean.´ "

Thank you for taking your time and energy to bringing your work and being to give us a two-day programme in Chamonix. The way you held the space helped us go deeper or go beyond "what's around it?" over and over again. It was calm and always be present at a certain frequency if I may say. Personally, my experience with your work was a big one and a complete one. I had an intention from this trip to France to renew my vision. The drawing work really gave me a complete version of myself, nothing more nothing less. My vision will be with that complete myself. This experience was very timely and awesome one for me. Thank you again for your effort on us and your work. Warmly,

"I'm not sure there is any way to adequately describe the end result of a 7 day Holigral retreat but I will try. Every participant comes with their own set of life experiences, goals, and issues. However, one thing is certain, you will never be the same. The results, insights, and benefits are permanent. Holigral - holistic & integral - of these two the holistic part is what is hard to articulate. The results of the work are profound but often so subtle in the integration that it can take a while to notice what you're doing differently because you didn't have to exert any effort in the change, you just suddenly realize you're having a different experience of life, you are acting differently, others act differently towards you. Some people fall away without you having done or said anything, some relationship dynamics change for the better without any conscious effort, there is a peace "which passeth understanding" that simply eliminates a huge amount of drama from your life. There are physical effects as well, less aches and pains as the former emotional toll ceases to exist. There is more laughter. I also experienced "the arkangle" or the" time machine" as I like to call it. It will take you on a trip to emotional freedom that cannot be experienced otherwise nor can I explain how it does what it does ~ let's just say I highly recommend you try it.

My retreat was in Cuernavaca, Mexico. The location was beautiful and restful, the people involved, both facilitators and participants, far sighted, supportive, and eager for change. It is the perfect environment for an overhaul of one's life. The end results for me are many ~ insight into "why I do what I do" and that knowledge ending numerous repetitive and negative life cycle loops permanently and effortlessly, removal of addiction to caffeine with no symptoms of withdrawal, the end of a 2 year stretch of chronic neck pain, the sudden end of a long term issue at work of immense annoyance and energy drain, improved communication (once the measurements are gone you aren't drawn into other people's story unless you want to be), and a focused life path from a "clean" perspective. My deepest appreciation to Steven Saunders and Jorge Carillo for their dedication to their work and ongoing support of retreat graduates. The retreat is not the end of a journey, it is the beginning."

Mary Oliver, Victim Services Coordinator / Law Enforcement

"I attended a weekend retreat and later on a 6-day retreat facilitated by Steve Saunders and Jorge Carrillo. I am impressed by my findings during the retreat and the results of powerful process.

I now can see myself in a more honest and realistic manner.
I can see clearly where I am and where I come from and self-acceptance is the obvious result.
I now know how I created multiple sclerosis and fibroids in my body.
I feel more sensitive towards myself, the people around me and my environment.
I feel alive and I feel zest for life again.
I have a feeling of inner peace and mental chatter has decreased drastically.
I know what I have to do and do it without too much ado or rationalization.
I feel I understand people and their behavior even if I don’t agree with them.
I feel more empathy.
Coffee and sugar cravings have diminished significantly.
Shopping sprees have come to a grinding halt.
I feel like working.
I can observe my own thoughts and its origin more clearly.
I focus on solutions instead of on the problem itself.
I flow with the now instead of thinking of the past.

This retreat has been one of the best time and money investments because I am still seeing new results on a daily basis and in different situations. More than a method to change myself, this has been a process to reintegrate my dissociated zones, to heal past injuries, to reframe definitory moments and to recognize myself within my personal context and even above my own circumstance."

Thank you, Steven & Jorge for this set of invaluable tools.

      Self-awareness on steroids

    I have attended several retreats led by Jorge Carrillo and Steve Saunders. I am impressed by and grateful for the effectiveness of the Holigral method to address deeply-rooted trauma and existential pain. I find the method human, non-intrusive and enlightening (for the lack of a better term). Although I still have some retreats to attend to understand my own mental and emotional structures, I feel very happy about the new level of self-awareness and inner peace I have obtained after this inner work. I believe there is no better investment than the one we make in our own selves. Thank you, Jorge and Steve. - Yolanda Bello, Mexico City

    My friend had spoken to me about the method of Holigral as a way of achieving what an expert person who meditates might achieve in a lifetime. He said Holigral could do this in significantly less time, while fully conscious and without drugs. After attending workshops I understand how this is possible. Expert facilitators lead you through a process of self expression intertwined with sets of questions requiring answers. Through the self expression, patterns arise that are identified by the facilitator. What ever it is that underlies the patterns, is addressed and "deconstructed" through questions from the facilitator and answers from the subject. The questions are posed in a way that eventually makes thoughts loose their structure and sense. At the end of the process, there is a literal relief felt mentally and physically. It is as if the facilitator engages the subconscious mind by asking it to speak of that which affects it but is not obvious to the conscious mind. When the issue expressed in a pattern is brought into consciousness and is "deconstructed"; you feel as if a burden has been lifted from you. By the end of a workshop you get to understand what it means when people say "just be". It is as if you have gone back to a moment in childhood when there were no responsibilities or demands and you just exist. The mind empties and all of a sudden you understand what it is like to be in the cliche of the "Now"and fully present. It is almost like magic taking place before you and inside you. It is not a walk in the park. No effort no gain, but it is toooooootally worth it. The internal dialogue inside completely vanishes. Holigral to me now is a method of achieving an altered state of mind and being; while fully conscious and without narcotics.

      Holigral Retreat

    I was profoundly surprised with the elegance and ease in which the method allows a personal journey of self discovery and healing through self applied exercises using patterns of questions and the information that emerged from several creative activities or just anything that might happen during the same processes. My personal experience of the retreat was of deep transformation in matter of days from which I´ve released my self of any stressful responses to everyday challenges and doings. My inner dialogue reduced to it´s minimal expression giving way to a deep and powerful intuitive connection with myself and others to the point that its amazing the ease and clarity in which I can now see and understand -even anticipate- situations and reactions in people or contextual phenomena. My performance has improved beyond belive and my health is vibrant and energetic. After years of meditation and practicing several healing modalities, I see in the Holigral Method a radical approach to human development and healing. After a couple of years of my experience, the results have been permanent and integral; they have brought a new understanding on the unconscious ways life emerges at every level, an adventure worth living beyod belief and certainly, the best set of skills for this complex modern age.
