Love is the Power – France

Love is the Power – France

April 25 – May 2, 2020

We are delighted to welcome Tom Compton for the second time. He will be giving two retreats of 7 day each in Fontaine-les-Coteaux (41) – France (11th-18th April & 25th April -2nd May 2020) to cater for the demand and allow as many people as possible to participate in this fantastic meeting with oneself.

Using exercises, sacred poetry, music, movement and group dynamics woven together to support us in honouring, seeing clearly, and stepping out of old paradigms that no longer serve us in loving Life as it unfolds.

Through The Work as meditation we can begin to bring everything within ourselves, heaven and hell, dark and light, into the "light" of conscious awareness and finally begin to meet it all with love and understanding.

These retreats are ideal for beginners as well as more advanced practitioners in The Work.

Discover for yourself how this Work can awaken an unconditionally kind and loving presence within you.

"Love springs from awareness, seeing ourselves and others as we are. The most painful act, is the act of seeing. But it is in that act of seeing that love is born." Anthony DeMello

“I felt cherished under Tom Compton’s expert and watchful eye. He has the soul of a poet. I have participated in Byron Katie’s workshop in Ojai, California and I found this to be the ideal follow up. I was in a group of a dozen people so it was a deeper dive into the Work. Margot and Karin assisted and held the space. The accommodation was comfortable and tastefully decorated. The food was delicious. It’s an oasis within a few hours from Paris.”

“Working with Tom was a rich and profound experience. Tom's humanity radiated through the group. His taste for poetry gave the retreat a unique quality.And his sense of humour made the Work feel joyful too at times. Thank Margot and Karin for being wonderful hostesses in Amani !"

“The intensity of the Work I experienced when surrounded with Tom's kindness and poetry supported me in seeing how love is the Power, and that in itself is a life changer to me."

"It’s revolutionized my life.”
