Transpersonal psychology points to the stage of self-transcendence beyond self-actualization as the highest level of human development. This advanced Shalom Retreat uses the traditional Shalom Retreat format with mat work to open and experience these higher states of consciousness. This retreat is open to those who have completed a minimum of 3 Shalom Retreats and had a personal interview with one of the facilitators. It is designed for those persons who have explored much of their ego development and shadow work, and are feeling the impulse to surrender the ego, their old stories and beliefs, and embody more of the spiritual dimensions of human experience into their lives.

Using the Shalom Retreat format, we create a safe and accepting community of gay, bi, trans and questioning men who explore together the truth of our lives and transformational gifts of being “queer”.
