Living an authentic life is our most intimate form of spiritual worship.

Authentic Self Expression Retreat - Mafra 2018

        OCTOBER 11-14, 2018

Communication is our way of being in the world. Our communication reflects who we are and affects everything we touch... our career, personal relationships and our ability to manifest health, wealth and abundance. All of these elements of life are dramatically inpacted by how authentic we are capable of being.

Authenticity is spiritual clarity in motion...
...and when authenticity is present everything else in our life works better. Achieving authenticity is not a learned behavior but more like unlearning who you think you are. These transformed experiences open you to seeing a whole new world... raising your pleasure tolerance and increasing your capacity to allow love into your life.

Finding Spirit Through Our Emotional Body

"Much like my So
ul Hunting Ritual process that heals the soul by entering through our Spiritual Body, the Authentic Self Expression Retreat heals the soul by entering through our Emotional Body. The Authentic Self Expression Retreat is a profound transformational process and is the one that originally opened me to the depths of my own soul." - Wilbert Alix


Healing Through Your Emotional Body

"Living an authentic life is our most intimate form of spiritual worship."  Wilbert Alix
The Authentic Self Expression Retreat is an interactive SOCIAL retreat & healing process. Originally conceived as a transformational technique within therapeutic communities this highly effective group process awakens the dormant life energy buried within persons who struggle with alcohol and drug dependency issues. The ASE retreat process is equally effective for persons with emotional trauma related to relationships, divorce, death, childhood and family struggles as well as any life problem where emotional confusion or repression was a result. Similar to the shamanic transformation process that heals the soul through our SPIRITUAL BODY, the Authentic Self Expression Retreat heals the soul by entering through our EMOTIONAL BODY. The Authentic Self Expression Retreat is a profound transformational process that will open you to the depths of my own soul.

Authenticity is spiritual clarity in motion. When authenticity is present everything else in our life works better. The Authentic Self Expression Retreat is based on a series of LIMIT SITUATIONS... organized structures that subtly move participants beyond their current limitations and into a more trusting experience of their own personal & emotional power. The result of participation in the Authentic Self Expression Retreat will be a more authentic you... closer to living your life from love and more capable of energizing the people and communities that you touch. It's about finding your heart and transforming darkness into light.

Who should attend the Authentic Self Expression Retreat?

  Persons seeking to cultivate the spiritual space within themselves that can produce meaningful and authentic results in the areas of work, relationships, art and other creative endeavors.

  Persons needing to heal their heart and after a traumatic personal experience (examples: relationship difficulty, loss of a loved one, struggle with family or friends). 

  Persons recovering from any emotional setbacks. 

  Persons wanting to discover a new and more profound personal level of spiritual awareness.

"By far the most powerful program I have experienced, ever! I rediscovered my heart through this experience. I had no idea what my life was missing. I would recommend this retreat program to anyone who seeks a full life. What Wilbert teaches is just amazing!"

The Authentic Self Expression retreat is based on a series of Limit Situations... organized structures that subtly move participants beyond their current limits and directly into trusting more of our personal & emotional power. This retreat is 'orchestrated' more than traditionally taught through didactic methods. Instead, all experiential structures and exercises are connected to each other in non-cognitive ways. When woven together these experiences accomplish a depth of healing that comes from their collective nature, inducing expanded awareness and transformation, which is what occurs when Thought & Experience happen simultaneously.

In the Authentic Self Expression Retreat you will learn:

  How to merge Passion & Compassion

  How to Utilize Fear as a catalyst towards
   authentic communication.

  How to Utilize Silence as a method towards
    understanding others.

  Learn why Rejection is an Illusion.

  Learn why Freedom is a higher quality than Love.

Discover the benefits of Conscious Love vs. Romantic Love.

'My intention is to bring into focus the enormously complex worlds of mysticism, psychology, shamanic spirituality, and science for the purpose of clear direction and achievement'  Wilbert Alix
