Embodied Life Retreat

Hannemo, Sweden (Hannemo)

"Being and Becoming": with Russell and Linda Delman

"We know there is intention and purpose in the Universe, because there is intention and purpose in us"

George Bernard Shaw

Dear Friends,

July at Hannemo is one of our favorite retreats each year - the beautiful setting, delicious food, caring hosts and that indescribably delightful Swedish light of summer.

This year we will focus on the powerful and inter-connected themes of "Being and Becoming".

Learning to BE in the present moment is one of the great challenges for many of us. We know that deep satisfaction arises from Presence and yet easily get lost in our constant, at times compulsive, "inner dialogue". When this happens we lose contact with the vital, unique offerings of THIS moment. The essence of Zen tradition is to return over and over again, with warm-hearted attention, to the simplicity of Now.

As modern people, we experience incessant demands on our attention. Most of us choose to connect, through technology, to the shared social world and participate in the larger planetary conversation. This is a time of One World, truly connected as planetary citizens and yet, we so often lose connection to the people closest to us and to ourselves. Thankfully, embodiment is a direct path to present moment awareness and fulfilling connectedness.

Simultaneously, we are creative Beings, who are both consciously and unconsciously co-creating our futures. One cannot overestimate the power of our imaginations and our intentionality. Often this begins with a “small step in the right direction”. And how do we sense into the right next step? We will be exploring this as part of our work together. We can say that we are both Beings AND we are Becomings!

We will also celebrate "Being and Becoming" through our connection to nature, the environment and sensing into the spaces around us. Our journey will include coming alive through intentionally relating to the outer world.

In this retreat, we will integrate the capacity for presence with our abilities to imagine, invite and create our futures! Garnering our conscious, intentional focus toward desired, fulfilling futures is within our capacity.

We hope you will join us for a joyful and potentially transformative journey, into "Being and Becoming". The opportunity to take the "backward step" and freshly look at our lives and our path is truly a gift.

Sending blessings for a dynamic, fulfilling New Year……. Linda and Russell Delman
