Things to Consider:
If you're an executive or professional, and you need a vacation, a good question for you to ask is what type of experience may you be looking for- is it a temporary vacation or does it offer a long-term positive improvement?
Oftentimes I am asked, “What should I do on my vacation? Where should I go?” They share how stressed they are and how they desire a richer life-experience. They can afford to go anywhere or see anything. They can getaway for 2 weeks whenever they wish. And what do they choose?
They mostly choose a customary trip that is relaxing, enjoyable, yet keeps them in their heads most the time. When they return to work or to their families, they aren’t much farther along emotionally, so their wellness last a few days, then stresses return. I knew of a person who had a nervous breakdown and chose to take an RV trip across country for 6 months. Post trip, they were still in a panic.
I share with people that a healthy, though hardcore option is to do a Vipassana Meditation Retreat. Until someone has done a 10-day retreat a few times, there isn’t much need to visit other places or do other things, because in those other places, you may find yourself into the same old patterns. Yet after a 10-day retreat... life gets a little richer.
If you're considering a vacation, ask yourself if it will you teach you the right ‘tools’ to guide you through something that hits you in life when you return.
How many people bury their anger? Bury their discomforts? Bury their unhappinesses, and build on top of those new experiences that they enjoy? (ie: they suppress a negative life-lesson and choose dessert instead).
Many people avoid anything negative and go on creating only the positive. One business professional put his methodology clearly to me with these words, "When something comes up for me that I don't like, I stuff it into my little dark hole. That way I don't have to deal with it."
This comes back to us in a big way because the ‘negative’ is there to teach us a valuable lesson. If we suppress something, eventually the pipe builds up pressure and bursts. That's how life works.
Real life mastery is about navigating the good and the bad. If a meteor is about to drop on your town or if a client is about to back out of a major deal or if your wife wants a divorce or if your child won’t stop nagging you, or you have an aversion to people who smoke pot... These situations are teaching you an incredible amount of information about knowing your triggers, accepting and healing your past, and mastering your emotional and mental bodies, so you can say “Yes” to all of life as it comes to you.
Any triggers we have in life hold us back from fully receiving some new opportunity.
Are you commanding when you’re at work, yet at your home you’re weak?
Are you loved by your friends yet disliked by your co-workers? Is there someone you manage who is a tough case, and the only tool you have is force to conform?
Do you do well in your neighborhood yet you can’t get around easily on the other side of town or even the world? Are you good with men yet challenged by women?
Do you deal with things by controlling them or by working with them?
How to stand tall in each situation is what we're all here to do on earth.
- No feathers ruffled,
- no lying,
- no cheating,
- no harming another to get ahead,
- no drugs needed for a specific result,
- anything you need is available for you,
- simply being yourself and getting paid a lot for it.
- Being yourself and being loved for who you are.
- Being yourself, and people respecting you wherever you are, because you fully respect yourself.
- Not running your warrior spirit down; knowing balance.
These are some of the reasons to do an executive Vipassana retreat. It's a higher vibe than our community-based Vipassana retreats, though we can't say it's better. It's just a different flavor and focus.
This retreat is a very personal choice on your part.
I know of a wealthy emotional coach and his wife who are doctors in Houston, TX. They counsel wealthy clients through their daily challenges.
They first time I befriended him, I jokingly asked, "Do troubles stop when you are wealthy or rich?"
I spent a lot of time with this friend, and neither his techniques nor our techniques are any better than one-another’s. Sometimes I’ll guide students to him, and sometimes he’ll recommend people to me. What’s the difference?
The bill. $$$
In the end, we all have the same issues; business, physical health, addictions, divorce, romance, dying, grief, anger, disease, childhood squabbles, ditching responsibilities (consistency), depression, insomnia, and the like.
Some people get better- those who choose to- while others remain as they are. No differences, except the amount you spend, and the modalities utilized for your well-being.
When it comes to completing an Executive Vipassana Retreat… you’re moving out of the one-on-one session realm and into the 5th Layer Highest Realm you can play in. You let go of people doing the work for you, and you learn how to take care of yourself at the mental/ emotional level, where life begins.
This is a commitment in one's well-being, spiritual development, life-mastery, wealth-game, longevity, mental health, inner wealth, and in one's staying-power.
Does it happen right away?
I'd say in comes in waves.
Commitment to the process. Starting over a lot. Giving up, banging your head, and taking advantage of the big waves when they come.
Who ever said this would be easy. And yet, we get up, do it again, and we realize it does get easier.
A lot easier.
Is life Luck?
Is it by chance that I was born into a good family or that I'm good with money or that I look beautiful? Is it by chance that I struggle or I have addictions or that I'm bad with women?
This meditation retreat will teach you about your luck first-hand. Your wealth and life-abundance won't feel so fickle or transient anymore. You realize you are actively creating your prosperity each day by cleaning up your past, knowing who you are, and being clearly in tune with what you desire in this moment, and what you’re creating in your life.
It is as awesome as it sounds.
It is fulfilling, it is challenging.
Created for professionals (engineers, doctors, attorneys), business executives (CEOs, account execs, etc), government officials (princes, presidents, congressmen), and sincere students who desire a deeply fulfilling, fully guided experience into the mind and emotions. You'll learn a proven tool for your awareness, balance, and joy. And that’s priceless.
No one owns your life. No Heaven, no hell, not a past choice, not your job, no family blood line. There are no chains that bind you. The executive retreat teaches you this with direct experience. Each chain will slowly be dropped. It’s exhausting, it’s supporting, it's rewarding, and it’s enlightening.
