A different and unique experience on May 12, 13 and 14
If you are in a period of your life that you want to make small or big decisions, but you feel stuck,
or you are longing for something else, you remain implacable, you lack passion
and appetite for life, or you do not know exactly what you want, It is more likely that you
are listening to many different commands within you that are reasonably confusing.
At the same time that you say "yes" immediately the "no" appears, and vice versa.
Usually this noise is due to the fact that you hear a lot of different voices: you listen to the
voice of your parents, your children, society, school, friends, etc.
In short, you listen to everybody except yourself, to your inner voice, the wills, the
dreams, the needs, the desires that come from your own center, from your "being".
What is happening is that you have moved your center to other circles, or your center has
been occupied by other "centers" for example of my "work", "my child", "my mother" etc. A
common known phrase / command in these cases is: "Above all my family, or work etc.
It's interesting to explore what it means when you make such decisions and it's simple:
You say "no" to yourself, and "yes" to everything outside of yourself and therefore you are
solely dependent on them.
Before you try to justify the error (which has an impact on you and your surroundings), we
urge you to remember the instructions of the plane in "emergency, when oxygen masks
fall". Remember? "First to you and then to your child"
Now, of course, there is distance between theory and practice, a distance you have to
walk through. However, reality is simple: if you really want to find the balance between
your center, that is yourself, , your life, and everyone around it, you have to do something
First and "above all" (as we mentioned before) you need to have a strong will ! You need
to say "It's enough!" When you feel it, then, you will be able to look for ways to change
this life that wants you to run after everyday incidents as "my child", "my husband", "my
The important things in your life will be those that create peace, evolution and smile. Then
you will begin to live with wisdom without fear for the opinions of others, because you will
just listen and trust “your voice”, yourself.
The path is very simple, and for that reason, perhaps, is not for everyone:
All voices / commands / beliefs / ideas / memories / commands should stop
This is only happening if you withrdaw in complete isolation, far away from the misty and
painful noise of all "voices"!
At the same time, you impose silence on yourself, in order to stop, first of all, the chatter
of the mind itself, you commonly start the voiceness.
In addition, when you give your body the command to "stop" , your body asks for “food”,
and thus you also get in fasting.
In this context, you start your research, trying to listen to yourself for the first time and the
answers that will come from yourself will surprise you! The reason being that without the
limitations of memory and mind, you will now be in a position to have a full picture from
above, and thus you will be able to see millions of alternatives to any problem.
You will meet different aspects of yourself and you will begin to create the core of your
own life, with values, vision, future, and purpose. However, you have not reached your
destination, you must implement them and put them into your everyday life.
When you find things that are important to you, your values, the life you desire, the care
you want to have, then you will create a very strong and clear "yes" to those that are
keeping up with your values, and a "no" without drama or tension, on what is not
You will be able to respond to the demands of your daily routine, work, family, taxes etc.
but there will not only be those! As by magic, there will be you as well!!
This communication with yourself, and the foundation of a center with your values and
needs, will give voice to your being (who always speaks to you, but you never listen), and
will guide your life by using your mind as a tool for implementation. Currently, your mind
uses you as its tool, and therefore you do not listen to the voice inside you, and of course
you do not obey it. But only this voice, this inner wisdom and power, this sense of what is
good and beautiful for you can bring balance to your center, your life. No mind, no
society, no surroundings, no prescript.
If you are ready to meet yourself and your desires, in this retrospect, you will learn the
way and the tools to do it.
WHAT IS THE CENTER, THE INNER VOICE
We have heard many times about this center, about this inner wisdom and power, the
voice that whispers, intuition, guardian angel, core and many other descriptions.
All of us have this intuition, this "aha", this decision making voice, from something within
us that told us so, without any reasonable explanation. All the great businessmen and
celebrities had it, we all have it, it's not something outside of us, they are not entities or
words of consolation.
In fact, even high-ranking business executives or important people like Steve Jobs, Sir
Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey and Warren Buffett attribute part of their success to the
Albert Einstein once said that this is our most precious asset and one of our less used
senses. It is our most natural biological function. Each of us has its own "sense" of what is
worth it and it is right for our lives.
WHY IT HAS BEEN LOST
If something has been happening nowadays, it is that we have distanced ourselves from
nature and our five senses and as a result, being completely cut off from the sixth, that of
the intuition, of the inner voice.
There is a lot of misinformation, supposedly spiritual, impregnated with hallucinogenic
substances and much more about this inner voice and wisdom. None of these are true,
and none of these will help you find your answers, but above all, no illusion will help you
implement the solutions you've found. You are not asked to have a superior power, a
way of thinking that will make you more "alternative" or "spiritual". It is just that in difficult
times, when you have to make big and small decisions, when you have big questions
about “who I am” and “where I am going”, you can find practically the way that will lead
you to the answers, or at least the direction, based on your truth, and not on your
surroundings, beliefs, society, past and mind programming.
THE MAIN PRINCIPLE OF COMPARISON
The most basic precondition for the beginning of such a persuit - route, is to understand
the simplicity and wisdom of Einstein, which says : “The same mind (thoughts) that
creates the problem, can not find the solution.
In a few words, you have to get out of the hole you have created yourself or the mind has
done it for you. This means you have to move away from the burning area and retreat
somewhat more quietly, more distantly so you can get the so-called “big picture”. The
movement looks like that of the ostrich, who has its head in the soil and sees only
darkness, until it gets the eagle's flying to see from above the thousands of possibilities
that exist. Steve Jobs was known for his long walks when he was stuck with a problem,
so that he could experience moments of true clarity.
HOW TO RECONSTITUTE
All of these sounds nice theoretically, but different cultures tens of thousands of years
ago have had a practical approach to this quest for wisdom. The withdrawal and isolation
was (and still is) done literally, either in the desert or in the forest. And it was not only a
withdrawal from everyday life, but also helped the body to clear the toxins by fasting.
It is precisely this cleansing of the body, the mind, the habits and the words that creates
the clarity and the clairvoyance and thus with a clear mind and an open heart the
responses begin to appear.
SOUL OF THE CITIZENS OF AMERICA & THE CREE THERAPY CYCLE
Voiceness, fasting and withdrawal are the 3 basic prerequisites. This is how the request
for the 4 points of the Native Americans' therapeutic cycle begins. For Crees or
NEHIYAWAKS, that means to be balanced in the Four Parts of the Four Directions of the
Healing Wheel. These four parts for every human being are the spiritual, physical,
emotional and mental aspects of the itself. We have to try to balance these four parts that
have been given to us, to act as normal people. The fire is at the center of the healing
wheel, from where comes the meaning of the teaching. For Crees fire represents yourself.
When you look at the Healing Wheel, you begin by yourself. And as you look outside the
wheel, you make your circle. This is the way in which the Healing Wheel represents the
“journey of people's lives. "
Every element, earth, water, air and fire are in fact four parts of our own center, or they
make up our center. When you reconnect with the quality of each element, you explore
how much the elements are expressed and cultivated, the needs they have (you have)
and that helps to unroll your search bucket.
For some people, this reunion may sound too distant, but the withdrawal in nature
multiplies that ability. The unique horses, and the nights we will spend in Hippolysis will
represent the wild-free nature, the desert and the forest. We have also added exercises,
questions, small rituals (without any religious connection), the cycle with the 4 elements,
the music with the Indian drum and flute, sounds, meditations all within the time of fasting
(24 hours) .
You need to practice immobility to be able to see and feel this inner voice. This test /
cleanliness at all levels, combined with the "exaggeration" of the habits of our culture
through mobile phones, sofas, electricity, television and soft strings that usually last for a
while, will actually help you to experience your truths. Soil, air, nature and animals can
help you live the truth, because they are true, it is nature itself. For this reason, during the
whole process, the cellphones will be handed in. Your friends and relatives will of be able
to reach you on Hippolythes call center in case of need.
The qualities of nature, earth, air, fire, and water in combination with the withdrawal from
everyday life - will help you discover your strengths and awake your forgotten powers and
sensitivities. This contact will lead you to a harmonious, full of health & energy and
When you reconnect with your center, you will come across the purity and insight of the
air, the passion and commitment of the fire, and the practical side of the earth. You will
meet the 4 sides of yourself that are necessary for anything you do. It should be made
clear, however, that linking with your inner wisdom, is not a “weekend” affair, rather than a
lifetime commitment. You will be able to continue your practice after the end of the
PREPARATION BEFORE YOU ENTER
You will receive through your e-mail meditations to prepare the body and you. A week
before, try not to eat one meal during the day, to prepare your body for the 24-hour
Inform your friends and relatives about the process of voiceness. You can communicate
with them by texting.
TECHNICAL DETAILS DURING THE DURATION
Throughout your stay there will be silence, however, there will be specific moments you
may ask your questions. The fasting will be kept for two days. Friday night (we will have
a soup) until next Saturday night, and Saturday night to Sunday afternoon, however, there
will always be something light in case you need to eat something.
Mobile phones will remain tightly closed, you will actually hand them in them when you
Ideally you may stay in Hippolysis at night, with your own sleeping bag, inside the
workshop room. We recommend it, if you want to multiply the benefits of the isolation
from everyone and everything. You can, however, go to your home.
SUMMARY OF WHAT WE WILL DO
Exercises with horses
Painting, kinesiology and much more
MORE ABOUT THE CREE TEACHING
The elderly will tell you that the Healing Circle is life itself. Look at the four seasons and
follow the sun. Spring in the east, summer in the south, falls to the west and winter to the
north. It tells the whole story about how all life came in abundant light, rising to the east,
and then fading as it moves west and north. All life rises and sets like the sun. What we
do in between is our journey. There is the need of the gifts of the four directions - the gifts
of spirit, physical body, emotions and mind - and we need to find the balance within these
four kingdoms. Many people nowadays are out of balance because they tend to prefer
only two parts of themselves, mental and physical. They forget to take care of their
spiritual side and often they do not know how to express and deal with their emotions.
People believe that by expressing their anger, they express their feelings. But that does
not mean they are emotional. Anger is a defense mechanism that protects our emotional
part. Our sensitive part is our emotional field, the place that feels the truth about what's
around us. But we will show anger before we show this true part of ourselves because we
have learned to feel ashamed of it. We will be angry because this is acceptable -
unfortunately, some believe it is also severed - but we will not show our true feelings, our
vulnerability and our sensitivity, because they are not acceptable. So we learned to
replace these feelings with anger.
As for the spirit, there does not seem to be enough time. People believe they need to
make a commitment of time through long periods of devotion to be spiritual. However,
spirituality is memory. It is to remember that the first thing that was given to us when we
were created was the spirit. Unfortunately, we tend to forget it, and then to deny our spirit
and take it for granted.
So we must remember where we came from and the gifts that were given to us as human
THE HISTORY OF THE 4 ELEMENTS
Every culture has found ways to cope, embrace and understand the elemental forces of
nature. The elements of the nature have been recognized by different cultures all over the
world. We find symbolic representations of earth, fire, water and air, inside prehistoric
caves, on ancient shamanic dances, and in the rhythms of the drum ancestors. The
elements are of central importance to major therapeutic and spiritual practices such as
those in China and India. Some cultural traditions include a fifth element. The Chinese
system contains fire, water, earth, metal and wood. The Buddhist system also includes
fire, water and earth, along with air and ether (or space). While the elemental symbolism
dates back to the recorded history. The four elements are naturally associated with
ancient Greek philosophy, such as Heraclitus, Pythagoras, Platonas and many others.
These four elements play are also important facts in astrology, jelly, alchemy, Jungi
psychology and other systems with far-reaching cultural implications.
