“When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live a life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.”

— Anon

If you want to live the best life possible, with no regrets and complete freedom inside and out, Ascension gives you the keys.

But, it (and life) doesn’t come with a user manual, it doesn’t come with instructions.

This is the reason I wrote “200% – An Instruction Manual for Living Fully.”

It’s also the reason for The 200% Life Retreat:

To give you the time, space, community of like-minded people and simple yet profound guidance that will help you get the best, not only from Ascension, but from every part of your life.

The 200% Life Retreat

The 200% Life Retreat is so you can not only go deep into your practice of Ascension, but also learn how to fully live Ascension.

It’ll take you through step-by-step to what you can do, not to just “get by” in life –

But live a profound, purpose-filled, adventurous, fun, truly Alive and free life: Inside and out …


… A life you’re proud of, and excited by

Get everything you need:

  • To cultivate a super solid and joy-filled inner foundation

  • For the most fulfilling, and even thrilling, external existence

  • Stop just “getting by” in life

  • Live as the best version of you, so you can be the partner, parent, colleague, friend, leader, team-mate – human – that you want to be

  • Be the boss of your mind, rather than your mind running you around all over the place, going places you don’t want to go, thinking about stuff that is useless and damaging to you

  • Have a life that feels worthwhile, filled with connection and fulfilment and purpose and meaning

  • Make Ascension as simple and enjoyable as they say it is

  • Deepen your connection with stillness and presence, and live it fully

Get Serenity, Courage AND Wisdom

Alcoholics Anonymous have a beautiful prayer that sums up the foundations of the 200% life:

“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

— The Serenity Prayer of Alcoholics Anonymous


The mastery of life lies in the mastery of these three skills:

The ability to do nothing,

the ability to make change,

and …

The presence and wisdom to realise when to do what.

Some people spend a lifetime cultivating just one or two of these abilities.

Ensure all three are not just a wish …

but a constant experience in your life

The 200% Life retreat – What It’s About

Find perfect contentment, but get “more” too

So often people get confused with this. I certainly was when I embarked on my spiritual search – even for a long time after I found Ascension.

How does contentment and acceptance relate when you have a real hunger to get more from life? What if you really know you need to make changes in life and the world around you? How can you be at peace, yet see there is so much to be done, so much you want to experience?

This is what the 200% life is all about:

Finding perfect balance in complete inner contentment and energised, clear, outer action.

The 8 choices of the 200% life

Step-by-step we’ll go through the eight fundamental choices of the 200% life.

I talk about these in my book 200% – An Instruction Manual for Living Fully, but the setting, the time together and the face-to-face interaction means you can explore these in much greater detail, at a much deeper level.

You don’t have to read the book

Although we’ll use 200% as a skeleton for organising the course, you don’t have to read the book.

It is a wonderful read, and it may serve as a reminder for you afterwards, but you’ll get everything you need when you’re on the retreat.

No previous experience is necessary

You can be completely new to this, or a veteran of First Spheres and advanced courses. It doesn’t matter.

All I ask is that you come a little bit “hungry."

By that I mean, you’re willing to see what you can do to get more from life. You may not know how, but I’ll show you that.

Come with an empty slate, an open mind and a desire to squeeze the retreat dry – get everything you can from it.

All levels of yoga catered for

We shall be doing some yoga (if you wish) – and we have an amazing teacher and Ishaya, Purya, who understands the needs of different bodies perfectly.

The yoga will be a delight for your body and your ability to relax and release tension. Should you want to push yourself and get a workout, Purya can arrange that too (although be careful what you ask for!)

It’ll be relaxing, peaceful and reflective …

You will have a ton of time to switch off from the world and chill: read, sleep, wander on the beach and/or extensive gardens, eat amazing food, connect with some like-minded amazing people, re-charge and re-energise.

And inspiring, enlightening and exciting too

You will also grow and transform, soften and deepen, become bolder and more excited as you simply step into living more in your life.

The 200% Life Retreat

Get super stable in inner stillness and unbounded presence

The Ascendant is always, always with you; in fact it is what you are.

Time on retreat and the guidance you’ll receive means that you get more and more familiar with, and stable in, who you already are.

Be serene and accepting

In the face of adversity and the unwelcome (in your inner world in terms of thoughts, memories, emotions, and your outer world in terms of situations and people), where others are losing their cool – and formerly you would too – you’ll have the skills to take a “half-step back” and remain above it all.

Not aloof and uncaring, but unchained – so you can do what you need to without flying off the handle or getting lost in the drama.

Gain clarity and boldness

So you can finally do those things you’ve always wanted to do but talked yourself out of. Talking of which, so you also know when it’s time to speak up for yourself and be honest and direct. You’ll be able to step into a new level of you.

Tap into your own wisdom and intuition

You’ll be able to tune in and know what is right for you and your loved ones, at any given moment. You’ll be able to meet the need of the moment. When to step in, when to let in slide.

Master your mind

You’ll gain skills and knowledge to master your mind: to able to choose to be calm, content, clear and conquer doubt and fear at any time meaning you control stress, overwhelm and negativity. So you can stop thinking so much about things you can’t control.

Understand why

Sometimes you do things you’re not proud of. Some big, like major self-sabotage; some little, like being snappy and grumpy with your loved ones.

You’ll get to see your limiting and self-destructive beliefs and behaviour, understand why you do things the way you do, why you react in certain ways and certain situations, and – in that awareness – do life differently, on your terms, with your eyes wide open, creating your future ahead of you.

Be free to choose

You’ll gain the insights, knowledge and skills to be able to choose your life as you see fit, to be the person you want to be in every part of your life.

Become more easy going, loving and compassionate

Gain the way forward in terms of your relationships with yourself and everyone around you: your romantic partner, your family, your colleagues, your community. Be less grumpy and snappy, get more intimate, understanding, exciting and alive connections with the people you want to.

Have more way more fun

Learn to take things less seriously, let go of everything you can’t control so it doesn’t consume you in the middle of the night, be happy regardless what’s going on around you, but also give yourself enough regular time doing those things you love to do.

Get inspiration and direction

You will come away re-inspired about your life. No longer confused, anxious, grumpy or stuck but with a sense of purpose, direction and motivation.

Come away with a plan and support for what next

You’ll come away with a plan and a chance for support to put these tools and new perspectives into your daily routine and have a lasting impact everywhere: Your health, your relationships, your family, your emotions, your goals, your work, your play … everywhere.

Based on my journey over the last 20 years …

Arjuna headshot stonewall.jpg

I’m excited about passing on what I’ve learnt on my journey in Ascension and in life over the last 20 odd years.

I’ve gone from being almost perpetually worried, confused, and a bit lost as to what I was doing with my life, to now life making perfect sense.

I know who I am, exactly what I’m here for, and what to do to help make that happen.

I know what works, what doesn’t work, what you might want to try, what you can leave well alone.

It’s not theory – it’s real, practical stuff that will make a difference to you straight away, and all based on what I’ve discovered really works in my travels to learning how to make the most of my time here on the planet.
