Otherworld Retreats offers shamanic-based immersive & sacred experiences

Wander with us wild and free, and discover the mystic magick of the Cornish Coast. During this 8 day retreat over Autumn Equinox, we will travel between this world and the eternal world unseen.

How do we know the difference between our feelings and the feelings of the other? The three major components of empathy seem to be: knowing, feeling and responding compassionately. We read books to gather knowledge of things we do not have the time or space to learn first hand. Tuning our empathy has the same effect but for emotions. We can connect with other humans and simulate experiences we have never had. In doing so we expand our awareness and are better able to live ethically and effectively with our fellow humans.
