Deep Healing: A 5-Day Unconditional Self-Love, Qi Gong & Meditation Retreat

Blake D. Bauer

May 27–June 1, 2023

Tuition $750 + 5 nights

Join international bestselling author Blake D. Bauer for five days of deep healing and life-changing self care. Discover why suffering such as anxiety, depression, addiction, illness, and relationship problems are logical cries from your body, soul, and subconscious mind asking you to finally value, accept, forgive, honor, and be true to yourself now, in every situation.

Now more than ever we need to understand exactly how to slow down, find our center, and care for our mental, emotional, and physical health in very grounded and practical ways. In support of this, the retreat will provide a safe environment to address your core fears, mend old wounds, transform negative thinking, and find clarity around shaping the life and health you want.

The program will offer real connection and in-depth discussion while you identify and heal your personal habits of self-harm, self-rejection, and self-betrayal. You will also learn two very effective forms of self-care – mindfulness meditation and qi gong healing exercises – both of which will help unlock the stuck energy, blood, and emotion that is keeping you unhappy, sick, or trapped.

This extended stay in the mountains will help deepen your understanding of exactly how to stop hurting yourself, how to trust yourself, how to feel worthy, and how to finally enjoy your life without regret and without feeling guilty for wanting to be happy, well, and loved.

The topics covered in this retreat are similar to Blake D. Bauer’s Beyond Suffering weekend retreat, however this program allows guests additional days to rest, address important issues, practice meditation and qi gong, and go deeper into the process of real healing and change.

Anyone who has done a Beyond Suffering weekend in the past is also welcome to attend the longer Deep Healing program, however past Beyond Suffering attendance is not a requirement to attend Deep Healing.

Please review and understand Drala Mountain’s current COVID-19 policy.
