Dear friends and Gene Keys Family,
We are extremely happy to announce that this fall of 2019, we have the opportunity to invite you to the first EVER Gene Keys retreat in Bulgaria, in which we are going to dedicate 5 days in the magical Rila Mountain to the powerful Venus sequence.
As the 2nd part of the Gene Keys Golden Path, the Venus sequence can be a journey full of wonders for each of us, who is ready to devote their attention to Her and take Her steps. And if the 1st stage of the Golden Path (The Activation sequence) reveals the path towards our most true and authentic Self, Venus is here to invite us to a far more intimate and personal journey – the path of our hearts and relationships in life.
Have you ever wonder why you have certain and often repeating challenges with your intimate partners, family members, kids, friends, co-workers and even people you barely know, or even don’t know at all, because they simply trigger something in you and push your buttons in the same way for the same things?
Sometimes it feels like our life is in a loop that might be changing the actors and the decors from time to time, but the storyline we follow always remains the same… Do you know that feeling?
Repeating situations, repeating relationships, repeating patterns, repeating lessons over and over, and over again… And somehow, no matter how hard we try to understand and learn, we can’t manage to embody those lessons fully, so naturally, they come again till we do. Compelling us to get to the core, to the essence – to our own mechanisms, which are being triggered automatically every time the button has been pushed.
From the Venus sequence and Gene Keys perspective, our relationships become one of the most fruitful paths for personal transformation and healing our most sensitive wounds. Wounds that come to the surface every time we feel hurt, wronged, misunderstood, rejected, unappreciated and not loved and respected enough. Wounds that we often see as our biggest weaknesses, because of the way they make us feel. And because of this intense discomfort, we very often start to play a devastating game of blame – blaming ourselves for having those wounds, or blaming the others for making them bleed and hurt.
And yet, the Venus sequence teaches us that there is no need for blame, these are only defensive mechanisms, protecting us from hurt (paradoxically creating more of it), but also protecting us from love. She reveals to us that we all have wounds, some of which appeared way too early in our childhood to actually be able to do something to prevent them, so instead of spending the rest of our lives protecting ourselves from them, we can do something far more helpful – we can heal them!
And that’s exactly what we do when we follow the Venus sequence steps.
The Venus sequence sheds light on 7 important aspects within us, which have their own shadows (defensive mechanisms) and gifts (natural talents), that are going to determine how we experience and approach everything in our life – from our love life to everything we actually do and desire to do.
Those are the answers we are going to seek during these five days, both individually and as a group in a new and innovative way.
And since those patterns are far more deeper than our intellectual and conscious understanding, our goal on this retreat is to explore them from different angles and through our whole being – experiencing them physically, emotionally and mentally. So in order to enrich our Venus experience, we’ll include powerful and proven Taoist embodiment techniques and meditations, for connecting with our essence and we will explore the power of unconditional touch and support for our body to get in touch with the cellular memory.
