Shame and self-hatred is one of the great invisible barriers to a direct discovery of your natural happiness. Shame is not something that is comfortable to discuss. It is the hidden undercurrent or feeling that if anyone really knew you they would simply run away.

Shame is a secret. It is the hidden belief that you are worthless, unlovable, and hopelessly flawed in subtle and not so subtle ways—a deep sense of self-hatred. It seems you can't quite put your finger on why this feeling never seems to completely go away—it is often experienced as a dark foreboding feeling that has always been lurking just below the facade that everything is okay when deep down you know it simply isn’t true. It is a raw unsettling feeling that something is wrong even when your life seems generally fine.

If you are like most people you are simply use to this secret feeling and are just resigned to this generally icky feeling. Naturally, you make the effort to consciously and unconsciously hide this hopelessly flawed secret of you so that maybe you will be somewhat acceptable. Like everyone else, you silently struggle to fit in and even adopt certain behaviors and personas to hide your secret self loathing—the invisible self-torture inside.

At this point in your life you know that at least you appear to be just like everyone else, but you know the hidden ugly truth. Perhaps, you are so accustom to this deep seated feeling that the roller coaster of emotions seemingly caused by the constantly changing circumstances of your life is a welcome distraction. But what if the events in your life don’t have much to do with whatever it is that you might be feeling? What if shame and the deep sense of self-hatred it generates isn’t at all what you might think it is?

As strange as it might seem shame and self-hatred and your struggle to hide this insidious feeling is actually the opposite of what you’ve always thought. Freedom from this often debilitating feeling lives in the willingness to authentically, openly, examine what it actually is instead of the limiting ideas you have that you’ve always tried to hide. What if it is possible that a radical shift in consciousness can end the pain of this suffering?

The yoga of light retreat reveals the root causes of shame and self-hatred and lights the way to a direct experience of your natural happiness. Kosi’s no-nonsense, funny, radical, and unorthodox teaching combined with years of experience, is a profound transmission that supports a dramatic shift in your consciousness from the suffering nature of your mind to the profound peace and freedom of your heart.

Her direct, pragmatic, and very down to earth guidance is a breath of fresh air that supports real progress in your spiritual evolution. If you are tired of all the spiritual fluff that doesn't seem to help you achieve any sense of happiness or well being, this two day non-residential retreat will catapult you into the bliss of freedom alive within you.

This teaching is not at all casual and is not an empowerment workshop, psychotherapeutic therapy, or a discussion group. It is a visceral transmission of light that supports a deep and intimate inquiry into your eternal nature—love, peace, and happiness beyond all ideas of love, peace, and happiness.

It might seem impossible to break free of the morass of shame and self-hatred in a single weekend, but this teaching is known as the fastest route to enlightenment—causeless unending joy.

This teaching lives in your own direct experience beyond anything you might imagine.
