Advice on surrendering to the unknown 


I wish that we didn’t have a money issue in the world. If anyone could come to our retreats without paying anything, we would have a much bigger reach. But I don’t have a bowl of gold at the moment. There are many reasons that people struggle to dedicate themselves 100% to a spiritual path, but money plays a huge role in who can focus on spiritual development.


People struggle on the spiritual path because they get trapped in maintaining their material, physical life. But, at the same time, I think that people have to take more responsibility for their own destiny and put more effort in. The first and the very most simple thing is to have faith. Surrender to the unknown and to let your longing motivate you further. If you give your heart to the unknown, then everything will proceed by itself.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Love of life. Tamara
