Workshops & Retreats

Workshops and Immersion Retreats are created to give us the opportunity to withdraw from the routines, responsibilities and roles, designated by the daily workings of our lives, so that we can emerge, regenerated and transformed, a catalyst for affecting change in the world to which we return. They are a time to touch base with who and what you perceive to be ‘you’, step aside from the familiar and move beyond its constraints, allowing un-chartered and undiscovered being-ness to arise.

Workshops and Retreats are alive and dynamic. They continue to evolve encouraging us to;

    • Clear, Centre and Connect.
    • Fall out of the head and into the heart.
    • Nurture the body, mind and essence.
    • Stop thinking and start feeling.
    • Reconnect.
    • Become aware of and move beyond our current perception of self.
    • Regenerate and transform.

Generally the workshops are a more bespoke experience, tailored to suit the specific needs of an individual or small groups of 3- 6 people. Workshops are non residential.
Immersion retreats are frequently an ‘in house’ residential experience. All participants arrive on the start day and leave on the final day. Please arrange travel plans accordingly, to respect the boundary of an immersion retreat.
The Immersion retreats can accomodate slightly larger groups, however they can also be arranged for specific groups or organisations. Contact me if you would like to know more about the bespoke experiences.

Testimonial for Workshops and Immersion Retreats

We all live our very busy, full lives often unaware of our potential or the universal potential that exists around us. This is where Soul Support Systems comes in. Nicky Kassapian is a person that lives entirely committed to reaching her own personal truth, personal potential and lives her life in full awareness. Nicky lives this dedication daily, through this dedication Nicky has been able to transform many lives by using her energy work, teachings and awareness of universal truths. I count Nicky as one of the most instrumental and inspiring people in my life she has guided me to a whole new awareness of the universe and in doing so has allowed my own vibration to impact on the universe in a very conscious positive way. I recommend everyone to take the time to be with Nicky and her teachings, they will impact you personally and therefore the world you live in, for the highest good of all.

Workshops 1-3 Days – A Bespoke Experience

When you address what is showing up in your life, it affects and changes everything else in your life as well. The efficacy of self reflection is external transformation.

Meet Yourself

Though these amazing personal development workshops on specific topics

  • Matrix of love vs Matrix of fear
  • Forgiveness
  • Conflict resolution

Results are greater personal efficacy and insights, growth and peace. The workshop medium allows us to focus more deeply on one particular topic, allowing what is present and what has been hidden to arise, for fresh insights and resolution to occur and transformation to follow.

Energy Work

Reiki is a healing system which has countless origins. Reiki was ‘rediscovered’ in the 19th century by a Japanese doctor, searching for a ‘hands on’ therapy of energy transference. You will study and gain experiential clarity in Reiki energy for yourself and how to offer sessions to others.
The therapy is very simple and highly effective. It concentrates on the major chakras of the body, aligning and activating the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being of the individual. As the Reiki energy flows, it harmonises, balancing and deeply relaxing the individual.

Liberating Arts

Liberating Arts is an innovative and creative journey into the self and the realm of feelings.
 A greater sense of self awareness develops, creativity increases and life changes. Artistic techniques allow us to drop below the radar of the mind. Creating space and allowing what wishes to arise and dissolve, to do so with ease and grace, colours and compassion.
 This workshop is designed to build a bridge between your mind, your heart and your intuition, opening a door so that you can clear, centre and connect better to your authentic self.

Read More

Through a combination of colourful creative arts, sound, guided meditation and discussion, resistance to feelings are released and blocks begin to clear. You connect with yourself, awakening your internal guidance system, GPS, stimulating creativity and strengthening your personal sensitivity.

The Art of Allowing. A practitioner’s workshop

The workshop supports you to develop greater awareness and sensitivity in holding the field and allowing, working from stillness and being the witness. Results are spacious sessions, greater clarity, clear boundaries, self confidence and trust.

Read More

To hold space for another to reach a deep level of stillness, where their innate intelligence can allow the necessary balancing, realignment and activation to occur, is where true ‘healing’ begins. The practitioner is the holder of that space, ever present in the stillness of the moment and attentive to the needs of the being before them.

Retreats 1-7 days

Be With Yourself – The Unplugged Version

It’s time to feel something real!

This is an immersion retreat for the adventurous. It is largely conducted through silent contemplation, with a new theme each day, allowing a greater sense of presence to develop through mindful sitting, walking, and empathic listening techniques. This is so that you become more familiar with yourself. Observe yourself, watching what you are thinking and saying. Simply being with yourself is to start knowing yourself. From there everything changes.

It is a week where you step away from the external world and the projections of who and what, you and others, think you are. It is for the curious, as it takes curiosity to sit with yourself in contemplative silence, free from all your personal and professional roles, your responsibilities, your gadgets, your friends and families and in addition, the identities you have been projecting onto yourself and out into the world.

Know that it requires perseverance, courage and a good sense of humour to navigate the less frequently visited inner realms of yourself. For those of you who want to develop some techniques for being with yourself more authentically and mindfully, so that you can operate with greater efficacy in your world, this immersion retreat is for you.
In brief it is for people who want to…

Read More

  • Press pause and stop being directed by external distractions – So you can become more aware of what you have been being and doing, and let go of that which is impeding you from being and doing, who and what you would prefer.
  • Connect with themselves more fully, in the here and now, in nature So you can feel something real, remembering how your own heart beats and experience your breath leaving and entering the body.
  • Listen to the resounding sounds of silence So you can develop a daily practice of meditation, mindfulness & grounding, using techniques to become more comfortable and better at being with the ‘unplugged’ version of yourself, in the stillness of the moment.
  • Drop out of the head and fall into the heart So you can start aligning with your inner knowing and bigger dreams, creating the space to bring them in.

A natural by product of this immersion retreat, is being able to connect more authentically with others and that allows us to connect in a different way with the world that surrounds us.

 To sustain your practice, post immersion retreat, you will need to make a commitment to yourself, to find the time to continue to sit and walk, navigating the less frequently visited inner realms of yourself, with kindness and spaciousness.

The very nature of this retreat will take us to the less frequently visited places around the world and the slightly ‘off the beaten track’ resorts and retreat centres. This will be assisting us through a natural and pristine environment in the external realms, to be with our unplugged selves in the inner realms.

Be Yourself -The Art of Stepping Up – 

Transforming though authentic wisdom and practice

This retreat is for the courageous. It is for those who are ready to take personal responsibility for what shows up in their lives. It is for those who are ready to be an active participant in their own process. It is for those who wish to step beyond the matrix of fear and into the matrix of love.

Be Yourself -The Art of Stepping Up- takes you on a journey into yourself. As we move from the external world of social responsibilities, duties and interactions towards the internal world of definition, perception and creation, we begin to see how we are creating what we are experiencing as ourselves and our lives. This places us in the optimum position to transform.

You will be compassionately supported in this and personally guided through the practices, techniques and processes, as shared in the book Be Yourself. It is in this retreat that the book comes to life. The retreat is a deep dive and a facilitated process of Be Yourself, as well as, other input. As you experience and embody it internally, you emerge regenerated and transformed. Moving from ego to essence, you become a catalyst for effecting change in the world to which you return.

The key is navigating our spiral of life from the surface to the very depths of our being. The spiral symbolises the source from which all things come and to which all things go, for rebirth and regeneration. This is a journey to a place beyond the visible world and who and what you think you are.

The focus of the retreat is you and your desire to transform, to step up and be as authentically yourself as you can confidently be. Curiosity is a very helpful characteristic to bring with you.
This calls for your commitment to an ongoing journey in being and becoming all that you wish to be. This is the key to sustainable transformation and authenticity.

The aim of the retreat is for you to come to a place of greater stillness and to be a catalyst for transformation in the world, by being the truth of who you are – more authentically, sustainably and fearlessly yourself.

This requires a desire to transform and a willingness to step beyond your current view of yourself and your life. To draw upon your innate strength and courage as a being on the planet, to experience the vulnerability and uncertainty of sitting in the unknown, allowing your natural curiosity, perseverance and a great sense of humour, to bring you home to yourself.

This, in turn calls for faith and trust, so that you can surrender to the current, as completely as possible, becoming like a leaf in a stream. Trusting fully in the wisdom of the current, allowing it to take you to where ever you are taken, trusting it is exactly where you need to go and where you are meant to be.

In this week long retreat you will…
