I’m excited to introduce you to this powerful new retreat format.

The retreat will be held on February 12th-18th, 2024 in the jungle of Yukatan, Mexico, where you will have the opportunity to experience cosmic consciousness as part of a small group of spiritual pioneers.

On this retreat you will be invited to open your heart and mind to your true nature as the cosmos incarnate.

The unique opportunity of this retreat is having the chance to explore the higher awareness of cosmic consciousness as part of a dynamically engaged small group. The retreat will include daily attunement sessions with me via Zoom video conferencing, and daily in-person discussions facilitated by Richard Bissonnette and Manon Desjardins.

In the discussions, Rick and Manon will instruct, inspire and guide everyone not to speak about cosmic consciousness, but from it. These profound collective attunements practice will voice the cosmos itself through the group. As each participant is swept up into the majesty of cosmic wonder, profound insight and wisdom will be revealed.

Each morning of the retreat will begin with a gratitude ritual and meditation following the instructions for the art of conscious contentment. After breakfast, you will gather for a 90-minute attunement session with me via Zoom. During my session I will offer guidance and instruction for attuning your energy and awakening your consciousness to its cosmic nature.

After the morning session you will generate a powerful atmosphere of inner freedom in continued meditation with other participants, and the space of ease that builds between everyone will become the foundation for even deeper spiritual work. In the afternoon you will engage in contemplative exercises, discussion groups, and other transformational activities.

The goal of this retreat is to harness the power of dynamic mutual inquiry to enter into the experience of cosmic consciousness and taste the possibility of a higher order of human life together.

I hope you will consider joining Richard Bissonnette and Manon Desjardins for this powerful opportunity for mutual attunement in cosmic consciousness.

About the Special Guest Teacher, Jeff Carreira

Jeff Carreira is a teacher and author, who dedicated his life to spiritual pursuit over thirty years ago. In his books, programs, and retreats, he shares the insights and understanding he has gained through all his spiritual work. He founded The Mystery School in 2018, and his teachings focus on spiritual liberation, soul development, and transdimensional illumination.

Jeff believes the material world of time and space is not the only reality there is, and it's not the only one we have access to. Through spiritual work we can explore invisible dimensions of reality and unlock our inner capacities that can change our lives.

What thrills him most is working with like-minded souls to explore higher realms of being to discover the full potential that exists within us.

Hello all, Right now I'm enjoying the retired life after working in an adventurous and exciting  career as a firefighter/paramedic.  My spiritual journey actually started with a powerful Christian retreat as a teenager where I fell into a sense of oneness, abundance and this amazing, wonderful, and  loving sense that we are all in this together. But the Christian interpretation felt incomplete. This took on a search where I met  Andrew Cohen, Craig Hamilton, Jeff Carreira,  Pete/Cynthia Bamptom , Elizabeth Debold, Tom Steininger, and a few others.  I also participated for three years in  Amy Edelstein's Inner Strength Foundation, teaching mindfulness meditation to high school students in Philadelphia.  I am amazed at the transformative power of meditation and also the amazing transformative power of sharing together in a non-egoic manner with likeminded people.    For a long time my passions  had been adventure traveling and exploring places I've never seen before.  And now I am finding even greater passion in adventurous  conversations with others exploring our true nature, opening up to places we have never seen before between us.  There is nothing more exciting and loving it seems.    I am excitedly looking forward to this possibility.

Hello everyone, Creating a space together for spiritual practice and awakening is a deep longing and I am very excited to meet you. My spiritual journey actually started as a child (without being completely aware of it) during my years of intensive sport training that started at the age of 11 years old, I opened up to a magnificent state of being which was more true to me than anything else. Later as an adult I kept searching « secretly » and at the age of 34 I had a head injury cause by a car accident that left me incapacitated and I had only God to turn to. During the 5 years of recovery I had different encounter and the world of Spirit was accessible. The search for answer started more intensively. I was introduced to Shamanism (in the Lakota tradition and explored the jungle of Ecuador in the Quechua tradition), Yoga, Kundalini practices, Biodanza and Meditation in Zen Buddhism and the Tibetan tradition. Further on, the search brought me to meet different teachers, Ken Wilber, Craig Hamilton, Pete/Cynthia Bampton (where I was an active member for many years in Portugal), more recently have been an active member of Jeff Carreira Mystery School. I am as well involve actively with Elizabeth Debold, Thomas Steininger, co-founder of « evolve-world ». The profound exploration and pull of Being has been the main thread that I have been following all my life. Discovering our true nature, coming together as authentic human beings is my deepest and most loving intention for living Life. I am honoured to be on this path with you. Rick and I met on the first retreat given by Craig Hamilton 13 years ago. Wee have been grown together as spiritual partners since then and keeping moving forward with grace and care. My journey has been and is always refreshing, alive when 2 or more comes together to explore the possibilities of the awaken the divine in us. I am looking forward to this journey with this community. Manon
