Bright Life Retreat

Have you ever said to yourself “It’s just too hard!”

I am sure like many people you are accomplished in certain parts of your life but lack happiness in other areas. Maybe you:

Whatever the struggle you probably wish you can come out of the darkness, see clearly what is going on, and let go of the weight so you can move easily and freely forward in your life.

What would your life look like if you could transform 2 or 3 of these areas?

If enjoying some of these benefits would uplift your life, you might want to check out the


On the retreat, you will learn and practice a powerful self-inquiry technique that will bring lightness and resolution to the specific issues with which you are dealing.

Obviously it is not possible to resolve all of these issues in two days, but you can focus on 2-3 of these on the weekend and make major progress in your life.

This will not be a workshop in which you receive theory and advice that fade in their effect weeks later. The leader will teach, you a powerful technique that combines silent contemplation, with authentic communication and compassionate listening that creates long lasting breakthroughs and transformative insights that originate from your own experience.

You become your own guru!

Before the workshop, I was struggling with a lot of harsh expectations I had around myself and my business. During the workshop, I dove into the self-inquiry process around the idea of “abundance” and it really shifted my perspective! I was able to recognize certain beliefs and patterns I had that were keeping me in a depressed and worried state of “lack”. Once I saw this, I felt light and free. The feeling has stuck with me ever since. Now, my business is thriving, and even when it’s a bit sparse, I don’t associate it with my self-worth. The self-inquiry work was powerful mostly because the new understandings came from myself. Though I was skillfully guided the deep work done at the workshop ultimately came from me and that was powerful! Barbara Dametto – Guelph

During the Bright Life workshop, I realized that I had been disconnected from myself, so it was no wonder it was hard to connect with people in the new community that I moved to. I enjoyed the self-inquiry process and gained many new important realizations about myself. Thank you Russell for this workshop and your many years of experience as a facilitator.”  Heather Skoll, Puslinch, Ontario

When I came into this workshop, I was holding on, and stuck in a feeling, and a belief that I am not worthy of being loved because I believed I didn’t deserve it! It was like I was in prison! During the workshop, I suddenly realized I had the keys in my “pocket!” to open the lock . So, I did so! And now I know, believe, and feel I am worthy to be loved and  receive love. When this realization suddenly came to me, I spontaneously ran outside and let the world know! I began shouting in full force that“ I LOVE ME” “I LOVE  ME”…..and now I feel beautiful. Thank you Russell Scott for your wonderful work! Matteo Ciavarella, Dundas, Ontario
