Uncovering Your True Identity     

Relax into your true nature and awaken your deepest gifts

Jamie Smart & Emma McDevitt

Albir, Spain               

4-day retreat  –  17th-2oth may


A 4-day Immersion with Jamie Smart and Emma McDevitt

Bringing together the understanding of the universal creative power of Mind with the living blueprint of your unique gifts and purpose….

Imagine experiencing a deep sense of inner peace… away from the wear and tear of everyday life… uncovering a deep understanding of your divine nature, your own uniqueness and of life itself.

“Uncover Your True Identity”  is an expansive, four day immersion by the sea, bathed in the warmth of the Spanish sunshine. Lovingly guided by Jamie Smart and Emma McDevitt, you’ll embark on a gentle yet profound exploration of your divine nature; nourishing your soul and uncovering a place of peace, serenity and guidance within. 

And why is this so valuable? 

…As we come more and more fully into alignment with our deepest nature, we experience a sense of ease… a releasing of tensions, struggles, hurts and fears we may not have even known we were carrying. 

We experience a phenomenon that’s sometimes long-forgotten (but oh-so-familiar once you return)… the lightness of being and depth of presence to life that accompanies the experience of truly coming home to yourself… and awakening to the emerging of new perspectives and possibilities. 

It turns out that life is *always* offering us guidance… but it’s often blocked or obscured by our habitual patterns of experience… 

As those obstacles fall away, the opportunities life is always presenting to you become more visible… you experience fresh clarity of purpose and direction…. 

Simultaneously, the barriers to taking those opportunities fall away, enabling you to live your life with a new sense of freedom and alignment.

If you’ve taken part in a principles-based retreat before, you may recognise some of your experience in the paragraphs above. Any time you deeply remind yourself of who you truly are is time well-spent… refilling your cup so that you (and the world) can drink deeply. 

So far so good…  that will be our *starting* point for this retreat… and we’re going to go further as we explore the answer to this question:

What’s the secret to uncovering an inner source of guidance so unwavering that it continues to light your way and be a beacon for others, only growing in steadfastness in the days, weeks and months to come?

As you see more of your universal nature (and the universal principles behind experience), and the struggles born of your conditioning continue to fall away… something else has the opportunity to shine through: your unique gifts, qualities and path… 

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.
As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.”
~ Henry David Thoreau

 As you become familiar with and develop deep trust in the North star of your own divinely unique being (and calling), you discover an unerring source of guidance that will carry you unfailingly through life’s adventures… illuminating your path as you discover a truer and truer expression of who you really are and discover the treasure hidden within. 

The bringing together of the understanding of the universal creative power of Mind with the living blueprint of your unique gifts and purpose often results in the falling away of conditioning that may have held you in place for years, or even decades…

Emma: It looks to me that the feeling of being on-purpose, finding your path, and feeling fulfilled is no more or less than the feeling of being in alignment with your truest self: The divine universal and the divinely unique “soul path”. It is this alignment that will guide you to your fullest, most fulfilled expression in the material world. 

Jamie: Retreats have a very special place in my heart. I was on a retreat in 2008 when I had one of those moments where your thinking quietens down, and something new emerges. I caught a glimpse of myself, sitting by the sea with a small group of people, in a gorgeous location, sharing a beautiful feeling of peace, security and love and teaching from that space. That insight guided me to the principles, to the work I feel honoured to do, and to the life I have today, and I couldn’t be more grateful. I want to share this beautiful feeling with you, and open the space it creates for you to have your own insights and get a glimpse of who you really are and what’s possible for you. 

Our vision for this retreat is that you get a clear and familiar enough sense of that guiding light for it not just to have been a wonderful week of remembering who you really are, but something that sustains and guides you afterwards, in the days, weeks and months following the retreat. We want you to emerge with a very clear sense of direction, and a more authentic expression of yourself.

The Immersion will be particularly valuable for people who have a sense of there being a ‘calling’ or ‘purpose’ they want to uncover and bring more fully into being in any aspect of their life. 

During this retreat, you’re going to…

  • Come more and more fully into alignment with your deepest nature,
  • Experience a sense of ease… a releasing of tensions, struggles, hurts and fears you may not even have known you were carrying.
  • Tap into a lightness of being and depth of presence to life that accompanies the experience of truly coming home to yourself
  • Awaken to the emerging of new perspectives and possibilities for your life
  • Uncover what your deepest wisdom already knows about what you are to become
  • Develop greater visibility, understanding of and trust in your navigation system to light your way in the day and weeks to come
  • Become a transmitter, radiating the essence of what you have to offer to those around you.

Beautiful Albir!

Situated in a lovely corner of the Costa Blanca, on the coast, and with all the amenities of a small, quiet, yet lively town, Albir is the ideal location for the retreat.  Everything you could need to make this a relaxing, enjoyable and memorable experience can be found within walking distance including the beach, cafes, bars and restaurants, supermarket and a wide variety of shops.

Albir’s beach is called “Playa de Racó de l’Albir” and has received the coveted European Union Blue Ribbon award, annually since 2001 – not a bad recommendation!

A favourite route to walk in the nature park is the ‘Faro’ trail which leads to a lighthouse. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of a dolphin or two as you look down to the sea from the lighthouse. The beginning of the trail is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel venue.

Mary Howick - Trainer

“In corporate, I had a very tough, aloof exterior, and it really served me very well … you could not show any vulnerability or any doubt, so it was very scary to step away from that. The thing that shifted me was seeing Emma and Jamie model that and realising that that was more impressive. It touched me, and impacted me, and opened my mind – way more impressive than if they had been sitting there doing what I was used to which is being the experts and having all the answers.”

“The combination of Jamie and Emma together is magic. At least I should say it was magic for me to see them working together. They come from it from different places, and it’s just beautiful. I’m going to say it’s like a piece of art to watch them work together.”

Katy Roser

“What I found was that with the two of them working together … there was just this amazing synergy and where the total is so much more than the sum of the parts. And it’s almost like what they both brought to it was amplified by the fact that they were both there and that they were delivering it together. It was just really wonderful – there was such a sense of safety, but also excitement of like, wow, this is a really safe space to have this absolutely amazing exploration.”

“It’s so freeing particularly for me because I’m of a rebellious nature, you know, and I don’t feel that I’ve ever fit into any boxes that anybody keeps trying to provide for me. And it’s just wonderful, both Jamie and Emma, they don’t provide boxes. They just provide insight.”
