‘The meditations, your teaching and the cumulative build up over the 5 days has yet again had a profound effect…
And it’s not just the personal experience, but seeing how you work with each individual person - and with all of us as a group - that is so powerful. Your gentle, kind mix of knowledge, humour and love is really a devastating combination - breaks down all resistance and allows one to see and feel where it wasn’t possible before.’
This retreat facilitated a deep immersion in presence, stillness and being. For me, it was deeply restful and rejuvenating. The combination of the truth, love, compassion, and wisdom in Satsang, with the physical healing and strengthening through yoga and the breathtaking experiences in nature made this a truly unforgettable (non-)experience. The connection with the hearts of and communion in spirit with the other participants in silence felt so sacred and pure. The best medicine. ”Fully human, fully divine”. Thank you.
'Thank you Paul. The first time I sat with you I cried like a baby, very deeply, for 20 minutes afterwards; I couldn't quite believe that I didn't need to pretend anymore! Thank you so much for showing authenticity and vulnerability in all its beauty.
Paul is especially wonderful with delicate inner child vulnerability. He has really learned to hold that space for himself and others. I have felt such compassion and support from him. A beautiful, highly sensitive teacher I trust with all my heart. At his retreats there is a peace and stillness which I have found unique. A very gentle, holding space and contemplation.
'This was my first retreat with Paul and I am very glad that you gave me this opportunity to tell you about my experience. It was indeed unique, and I can honestly say that I have never met someone like Paul before. I was deeply touched by the simplicity, warmth, authenticity and beauty that permeated the whole retreat. Your performance during the retreat seemed like magic, and perhaps that is what it is all about, the simple magic of love.'
Such pleasure to listen to Paul speaking truth in such a complete, all inclusive, manner. Humanness and Divinity. All that we are. Helpful reminder every time, and the most enjoyable celebration of the best possible news. The fact that our humanness is not left out, but given its true place, makes this extra helpful, the way I see it. Helps us all recognize God in ourselves and in everything.
You are a gifted speaker and your pointings are with clarity humour and simplicity what I love so much.
‘Your ordinariness is exactly what attracted me to u. I was looking at you at a festival last summer and all my ideas about gurus, masters..were dropping off. And me thinking...He is just a normal guy with the biggest heart I have ever seen. Thanks Paul..u hav been the first one I could listen to because of your ordinariness xx.’
I felt this retreat had the most beautiful interactions between you and the people coming up. And I realized how important it is that the people coming up are really authentic and dare to be vulnerable. And that the people coming to your retreats are very good at that. I've also been to a lot of retreats and meetings with other teachers, and I think in general you seem to attract a lot of authentic people. I think this is because of the way you meet people, it is very sincere.
The simple recognition of what is always there and of what I am brings a deep peace. Not really an awakening as much as a slipping into what I seemed to already know. Loved also how Paul held and responded to everybody so sensitively - loved the power, clarity and humour with which Paul teaches. So touches and resonates with my being.
I have been attending the meetings regularly for the past few months and have noticed that I am able to deal with my everyday life in a much calmer more focussed way. Things that used to bother me are not doing so much anymore. Paul has helped me see that the minds version is not always the truth.
It was a humbling experience to be in a context where I can be very vulnerable and go into stillness. where I can put the spotlight on aspects of my being that i haven't been able to look at before. I enjoyed listening to the other sharings, it was very insightful, emotional and I gained a better understanding for other peoples challenges and struggles and made it easier for me to emphatize with other people.
Dear Paul, Thank you so much for your sweetness, for sharing your heart and helping me to rest in presence; to discover "I am that" Much love & deep gratitude
‘Thank you so much Paul Hurcomb love you! Five years with you and your wiseness have changed my life to the much better. Everyday-life flows after Orgíva, don't identify with anything else but me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!’
'Your commitment to the truth of your Being has been a real inspiration for me - I respect you deeply for it and am beginning to discover the same respect in myself.'
What I like about your meetings and what resonates well in me, is the pure, simple way of pointing to the truth by also including and embracing our humaness, that is often neglected a lot in spiritual teachings. The space of the retreat felt so pure and grounded. Thank you
‘Really, really satisfying. Paul is Love, patience, wisdom...everybody who went up got such a beautiful
With Grace and Love I thank you for the guidance and teachings, the meetings are beautiful. What you speak of always resonates within my beingness and further awakens the self. Thank you so much.
Your way to share your wisdom is so easy to understand and to follow. No longer longing to come home. My experiences on this weekend opened for a new state of being. I am at home, I am home, I always was. I want to Thank you, deeply from my heart.
I loved this retreat, I found it very powerful, touching, inspiring; I was immensely moved by everybody’s level of honesty and had a big sense of such a lovely bunch of humans together in one place. Both of you really attract fabulous human beings. You both were warm, welcoming, marvelously wise and unerringly tuned in. I loved the retreat and I haven’t got the words to thank you both enough. I’m immensely thankful to have found the pair of you.
Feeling amazing - very centered and totally calm - even with the storm now brewing outside - I thought Paul was so clear and focused and made being with God/ Source/ Spirit feel so easy - and available - just be STILL and differentiate Ego from True Self - thanks Paul for your heartfelt sharing and wisdom.
