Transition jungle retreat with emotional mindfulness 

Are you in a gap of transition caused by a change in career, separation, change in yourself, divorce, or emigration?
Maybe you experience a deep call from your soul to find a new purpose and a form of your life or work? Or your life has been dramatically changed by the global pandemic?
It is time for a retreat. This retreat will restore your energy, deepen your presence, nurture your inner compass, and enlarge your inner freedom through emotion-focused work and yoga practice.

Mindfulness of emotions and coaching sessions are guided by an internationally recognized psychologist and author of the Emotional Coaching model (published by Cambridge University Press), Dr. Agnieszka Konopka

Description of  the retreat

Being peacefully present with our own fears we become fearless. Like Shiva wearing a necklace of snakes.'  ... Agni

The retreat starts from a week of emotional mindfulness, mindful practice of yoga, and Yoga Nidra. During this week we cultivate the inner focus of attention in silence. The first week includes an individual coaching session and individual guidance if needed.
Additional Asthanga yoga classes can be followed during this week.
The two following weeks include also group sessions focused on transition issues. During these weeks you can attend extra Asthanga Yoga class, Yoga philosophy class, and additional emotional coaching sessions if needed.
Emotion-focused work will allow you to become more aware of what you feel. Only when you know what you feel, you know what you want or need. You will learn how to be with your own feelings in a liberating and growth-promoting way.
Yoga and Yoga Nidra will help you to restore and rebalance your energy. It will increase your awareness and presence. You will have an opportunity to address any important individual questions during group or individual sessions.

About Dr. Agnieszka Konopka

Dr. Agnieszka Konopka (Agni) left school at the age of 15 to follow her own interests, as she found the educational system restricting. Already at that time, she was fascinated by the teachings of Krishnamurti on Freedom from Knowledge. Her early interest in meditation and spirituality developed and deepened through her life and work. She became an internationally recognized psychologist, with a Ph.D. in the psychology of emotions, Cambridge University Press author, and Routledge featured author. She developed the Emotional Coaching model (published by Cambridge University Press) and the Composition Work method.
She gave many training courses and educational programs focused on Composition Work, Emotional Coaching, and Transition, internationally (China, The Netherlands, Belgium, USA, Mexico, UK, Brazil, Poland, Japan, Spain). She has been a co-founder of the International Institute for Dialogical Self and served as an Associate Director for the Portland Institute of Loss and Transition. She has been working for about 20 years as a therapist and coach. She is also a Yoga Alliance registered teacher. 
Although she has a profound knowledge she is at her best when she works and lives from "not knowing" mind that is in her view, the gate to presence and healing. 
She aims to promote inner emotional freedom through her own life and work, and she believes that our still witnessing presence and the movement of emotions are great transformative forces. To use their synergy she brings together the psychology of emotions with meditation/yoga tradition.

' I wish to inspire and encourage people to live emotionally free. Especially in times of change and transition such freedom can be blocked by fear. But fear may become the door to freedom. When we can be free with fear, we are not dependent on the absence of fear.
Being peacefully present with our own fears we become fearless. Like Shiva wearing a necklace of snakes.'
