Dates: 21 Dec - 29 Dec 2019
Place: Nasik Dist, Maharashtra, India
The Next Selfcraft will be held in 19 - 29 Dec 2020 at Nasik
About the Journey:The self, is our unique way of being in this world and Selfcraft is a 9 days quest in the wilderness, a journey designed to reconnect, rediscover and craft anew the so far forgotten and unattended to, self. Set in the beautiful wilderness of the forts and villages of Nasik district, Maharashtra, the odyssey of self discovery, using specially curated practices, exercises, rituals and ceremonies that are secular and invitational, will focus on connecting with the inner world through the body, emotions, mind and the spirit and finally the question, buried underneath, who am I? What is my true Nature? What is my purpose?
Who is it for:The transformative expedition is for Wo/men 21 years and above. It will appeal to men and women in any life stage but more importantly to those who intent to take the inner journey within or are already on the path of self awareness, self-discovery, self leadership, personal mastery.
What can you Harvest:Selfcraft Journey offers a possibility for marking significant life changes for participants, to develop Self awareness and connect with self. Healing, closures to conversations and relations. Creative and epistemic shift in consciousness, self perceptions and core beliefs leading to enhanced self awareness, personal mastery, self leadership, mindful presence, wholesomeness and greater meaning in lives, family and work. Self-integration at different levels. A deeper understanding and connect with one’s body, emotions, needs, values and with other selfs/participants and nature.
Selfcraft is offered with an intention to help you to develop a greater presence in mind, body, feeling, spirit and speech and to connect with yourself, your awareness in a fully embodied authentic presence.
On a more personal level, participants will identify the standards they wish to bring to their lives in terms of actions, that will help them be, who they wish to be. And most importantly a community of journeyers, to belong to.
What can you expect :During these 9 days, we will leave the comfort of daily life and head into the uncertainty of the great outdoors in a safe and supportive environment. We will focus on enhancing intra-personal awareness to develop a strong self - presence through inner-work, guided inquiry and self - discovery processes. We will have deeper conversations with the self, nature and cultivate a soulful relationship with ourselves, others and life. In this reconnection with nature we will find our own understanding, liberation and embodiment of our selfs.
The Journey is in 3 phases of 3 days each. Separation, Transition and ReUnion.
The Separation or Severance phase is about leaving everything behind.
Separation begins as soon as you feel the call to a new adventure, a quest to find your true identity.
It is the phase of preparing to leave everything behind, gathering together just what you will need for your journey. You are preparing to leave a known life while the unknown awaits you.
Transition or Threshold or Passaging is the time between the leaving behind the known and embracing the unknown and with its newer discoveries. This is the time of solitude, hunger, exposure and the powerful trials that will test your human spirit and your purpose to transition to what you have come for. Here Time can slow down and the stillness of the nature can be very powerful. As your thoughts begin to empty out, you can look into the pool of your own being, noticing how you are, what your dreams are made of, what you need to let go of. This is also a time for adaptability with the natural environment, even if it is hard because adaptability is very essential to survive in life. During the transition period, you will live simply in nature, learning her lessons, as human beings have done for thousands of years. In this phase you lay the old to rest and breed on new self. This is a unique encounter with yourself and nature.
In this journey, we will practice and reinforce some sacred life standards with care, kindness, compassion and love. We will interact with the elements of nature and participate in a set of exercises and ceremonies and that will expand our inner wisdom, heal our wounds, awaken our inner voice and free us from some of the past conditioning's that control our lives.
We will also practice several rituals and self-attunement practices that will enable us to open ourselves up to the experience of developing a wholesome self- presence. And return with the gift of the self. For ourselves, those we love and the humanity at large.
I had immensely benefited by wilderness quests and it has changed me as a person to find my truth, unique expression and deep authenticity. The intention behind offering this selfcraft journey is sharing the gift I received and continue being in service of others journey of self discovery along with continuing my own selfcraft journey.
