Transitions V by Zūnya
An experience combining a series of ancestral practices, modern knowledge, psycho-magic, experiential learning, embodiment, and rites of passage
July 30 - August 7 2023 | Malpais, Costa Rica
Transitions is a life changing “Transformational Experience” sustained by a Regenerative Living Method, one that has been designed to catalyze profound growth and positive transformation in the individual as well as in the collective.
The overview

Most of us are waging a war with the outside world. The dissonance, destruction, separation, and disconnection that we experience in the world are simply a reflection of our internal state of being.

The war to end all wars is the one that we are all fighting for our own human heart. Most of us are split, wounded, and deeply hurt. We experience life through the limited perspective of our belief systems, society, culture, and centuries of domestication that have brought us to the current state of humanity.

We've lost the connection with ourselves, with others, and with nature.

This journey seeks to create the conditions for individuals to realize that there is a force within waiting to be acknowledged, harnessed, and expressed. An inner force that has the power to burn the veils of delusion that keep us separate from our true essence, from everyone and everything around us.

It is a methodology that combines a series of ancestral practices, modern knowledge, psycho-magic, experiential learning, embodiment, and rites of passage with the intention to create the conditions for you to receive and integrate the tools of wisdom necessary for you to reclaim your sovereignty and navigate through life with more grace.

It's a process of unlearning and relearning the basic foundations that sustain the beauty of our human experience on this planet, to become aware of the different forces that are in play and how they impact your life.To let go of all those masks and the need to pretend to be something that you are not.

A process that will allow you to transcend the limitations that are holding you back, only to discover where your limits are not.

To be authentic, to be honest, to be real.

Breaking down the anatomy of the human experience in a simple way, in order to start working holistically with your entire bodies, from the subtle to the dense, following the universal principles of creation.

You are so much more than what you've been taught.

Now, the question remains: 

Are you ready to transition from the old version of yourself and into the new? 

Or do you want to remain at the expense of all the domestication and indoctrination that has  been imposed upon you…
