Recovery Elevator Quit Drinking Retreat

“When two or more like-minded individuals come together with a conscious and clear intention of departing from alcohol or deepening with inner peace, healing inevitably happens. When unconscious obstructions to health, happiness, emotional wellbeing, peace and vitality are removed, the heart heals. Alcohol is no longer needed. When we become aware of what is taking place and begin to embrace it, limiting beliefs about ourselves and others begin to fade away. We then begin to learn a new way of being and consciously create this environment of wholeness in our day to day lives.”

– Paul Churchill

27 strangers and I gathered together in a 3rd world country for a retreat. We quickly stripped ourselves of our look good, shared stories, bared our souls and fully accepted each other in all our humanity. Each day we came to love and accept each other more deeply in a way I’ve never done before. We built connections with each other quicker and stronger than expected, exploring one another like a cross between shiny new play toys, complicated puzzles, wise Buddhas and old, trusted friends. It truly humbled me to the core. 

What did we do? We biked through narrow canals and roadways, planted trees in a nature conservatory, bathed and bonded with elephants, floated down the Kwai river in life vests, ate crickets, got daily massages, ate enough rice to feed a small country, witness the flight of thousands of bats, and laughed until it hurt. We experienced a new dimension of consciousness through intense breathwork. We sang songs, learned chants, ate junk food, cried, hugged and laughed some more. We explored ancient ruins and learned about great societies decimated by greed and war. 

We fell in love with Hero rats, learned about weaving silk, crocheted recycled plastic bags, got tattoos – real and henna, and snapped enough photos to keep device manufacturers in business for years to come. We prayed, meditated and laughed some more. We got to know our guides and wished them adieu. We set intentions to music, crossed borders by foot, meditated at sunset, shared in small groups, and we were welcomed by Cambodians to stay in their homes. A few of our group even got to attend a Cambodian Wedding. We emerged as better, fuller versions of ourselves and more aware of our place in the world around us. It truly was the trip of a lifetime.
