During the retreat Dr. Eliaz creates an environment where a profound sense of intimacy and safety is felt. This enables each person to go deeply into their own healing process as well as experience deep compassion for the suffering of others. The sense of trust, deep relaxation and hope is foremost.

The meditation sessions and chance for self reflection gave everyone who participated the opportunity to open their hearts and minds to true healing," says Dr. Eliaz.The retreat is a reminder of the healing power of the mind, of the possibility of anything and everything to arise and transform us. Nurse Practitioner Elaine Weil says, "Dr. Eliaz's many years of study and practice of Chinese and Tibetan medicine, homeopathy, herbology, and yoga along with years of concentrated meditation practice created a brilliant integration that was truly unparalleled in my experience.
