Training Towards Spirituality

With Maria Daniels on the tranquil and magical Altiplano of Granada in Andalusia
Towards Spirituality is a retreat training incorporating modern psychology; such as Voice Dialogue , the Psychology of Selves and Biographical Work, is combined with the bed of the Ancient Knowing of our ancestors.

The psychological and energetic deepening will go hand in hand with experiences in nature, in relation to Spirit and Forces that are present in and around us. Towards Spirituality: the title refers to an intrinsic movement that lives in us and that is nourished by the Inner Knowing as motor and compass.

An Inner Knowing that is sometimes clearly heard and felt. Often the contact with it is fleeting and weak. Then these deeper layers in our consciousness remain unreachable and lie dormant or in the background. However, you hear the whisper and the cry for meaning and inspiration.

You feel a longing for your connection with and for rooting in a Greater Whole. You look for ways to deepen your relationship with your own and natural power and Inner Knowing, You allow yourself a magical journey in which you catch glimpses of the Mystery and learn to recognize and honor the wisdom and the mirror of nature .

Towards Spirituality is about an exploration and deepening in the context of inspiration. Biographical research, Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves, combined with the experience of the traditions of the ancients that remained vital. This together with the experience of the beauty, the mirror and the wisdom of Nature. They are sources that can have a lasting meaning for your life path and therefore also for the life path of others. Towards a deepened relationship with one’s own, clear and natural strength.
