I am pure love: an introduction to self love – All inclusive 2 day retreat

With Lorna Byrne

September 20 - 22, 2023

“We all have the potential to love ourselves and others significantly more. If we choose to love more, we will have greater happiness and joy in our lives and be better to play our unique role in creating a much more loving and peaceful world.” Lorna Byrne

According to spiritual teacher Lorna Byrne, self-love is the most important form of love. If you don’t love yourself, you cannot love anyone else properly. Join Lorna Byrne on this beautiful retreat as she guides you along the first steppingstones in the journey of self-love.

During this retreat you will have the space to:

  • Acknowledge how self love is the most important thing FOR YOU
  • Find the courage not to be afraid of self love and take the first step forward

Over the course of the retreat you will receive instruction in person with Lorna Byrne as well as time in a group setting to practice what you are being taught and to share and learn from others. There will also be time set aside for quiet reflection and completing Lorna’s homework.

*Minimum of 8 hours teaching time with Lorna.

The work on re-learning to love yourself is so important. Limited to 15 participants this extremely intimate retreat will include sessions with Sanctuary’s founder and spiritual teacher Lorna Byrne spread across the time you are here* In keeping with her style of guidance Lorna will tailor the activities, teachings and exercises to suit the exact needs of the group attending. Depending on the weather you will also have the opportunity to practice outdoors in nature as Lorna herself was taught as a child.
