Module 1: Living as a True Person
of Being - the Pearl beyond Price

May 8 - 15, 2021 (SPRÅK: ENGELSKA)

Course facilitator: Kåre Landfald

Living as a True Person of Being - the Pearl beyond Price

Ego development is a stepping stone towards the full maturation of the human being. The True Person of Being is the complete human being, living in full autonomy and yet fully connected. The True Self is the richness and fullness of being in human form. It is the ability to be authentic in contact with others, and it is to offer one’s gift to the world from a deep inner connection.
To be in touch with our personal essence, our true personhood, is pure preciousness. Almaas calls it the Pearl Beyond Price, the Blue Pearl. It is priceless. It is inner peace and contentment. It gives meaning to being human. It is the integration of the different essence qualities in a wholeness of personal, individuated human presence in the world. It makes true relating and true living possible and available on a daily basis.
In this retreat we will explore the qualities of the Personal Essence, the Pearl, and the blocks to living and developing it. The Pearl is not only an inner discovery, it is a growth and development, the maturation of the human being over time.
