Well Being Retreat Center,  557 Narrows Road, Tazewell, Tennessee 37879

Well Being Retreat Center is offering a two-night Weekend Retreat entitled “Exposing Ego” led by the author of "It's Time to Wake Up Now: The Top Ten Myths that Can Hijack Spiritual Awakening.," a five star rated book on Amazon.

We will explore that interior movement which we label as "ego" and which we believe is real. As spiritually minded people, we believe that getting rid of ego is a prerequisite to waking up. In other words, ego wants to "trade up." Ego contemplates "letting go" of itself, but only if it can get something better: enlightenment! When exposed to the light of day, this reasoning is clearly seen as just another egoic improvement strategy. C'mon, you have to give ego its due. It may not be real, but that doesn't mean that it isn't about the cleverest thing around.

There is no charge for the retreat, but we ask that you bring and prepare one meal. Depending on the number of people attending, two or three people may be responsible for a supper or a breakfast, for example. (We expect that 10 – 18 people may attend.) In this way, you will have an opportunity to experience serving and to being served. You will also be asked to help with kitchen clean-up for one or two of the meals – usually a 20 or 30 minute endeavor. You may be surprised to find that these “yogi chores” can create a sense of community and surprisingly deep friendships even during a brief weekend retreat.
