Reviews of the retreat


“The retreat was organized by people who created all this with truly great love. The love that is constantly felt in the way you are guided throughout the retreat, how they help you understand the techniques, perform the exercises, even how comments are made - especially how feedback is given. You can feel that the main goal of the instructors is to help! Do not let you get stuck on mistakes, so that a person can take as much as possible during these fast-fleeting days.

In general, the level of organization of the event and the instructor's work immediately became the first and most important confirmation that all the values of the School actually work, that it was not just brochures, marketing and grandiose words. And also wonderful communication between the participants themselves - so many interesting stories, amazing experiences, human warmth.
You can talk for hours with each participant, and the very specificity (subject matter) of the School's events seems to select people for you. There is hardly a random person here without an extensive path behind him.

As a result, 5 days of work rushed by, but we take these 5 days of practice with us. Exactly practice. For some, this is already an experience of awakening, for someone - strong experiences of the present moment, an open, sensual attitude to the world and the feeling of oneself in it ... or the world in oneself!"


“I learned about the School from my friend. I went to the School's VK page. The first video I came across was of Sasha Larionov - it responded to the depths of my soul. My husband usually looks at such things very carefully, but this time, lo and behold, he let me go!

At the retreat I was simply overwhelmed by a wave of gratitude to providence, to the Creator, for the opportunity to get here, gratitude to the people I met here, who organized this event, took care of us, created conditions so that each of us could dive into experiences available to him now.

How cool it is to be among people united by a common goal, a common call of the Soul! How nice it is to feel the present moment, to feel oneness with everything that you see around you: nature, people ... What a powerful response is felt when you embrace a person who was completely unfamiliar to you before and feel how his chest begins to vibrate in response to the embrace ... and you feel him, his state, response.

There were memorable moments during the practice. The most vivid moment was when, on the second day of practice, after pronouncing the setting, it was as if the walls fell apart from my head, and I emerged, in the form of a transparent energy ball, somewhere up. I wanted to cry and laugh at the same time! A wonderful feeling of fading of the mind, when you walk and see the beauty around you, and feel freedom from desires, aspirations, feeling confident that everything will be as it should be! "


“This is the first time I got to a live meeting - the Givin School retreat. Previously, I studied at the School in an online format.

It was not easy at the retreat, but inner work and teamwork made it possible to see a different world - sensual, real one. Feel what is so lacking in society - heart warmth and gratitude.

I saw the value of the environment and the importance of turning on the giving. I saw some of the walls of my selfishness, as well as what I still need to work on.

I thank the instructors for their service, for their clear explanation of all the elements of the School's methodology.

And also thank you for the excellent organization of the retreat! I want to move on, studying at the School! "


“The retreat helped me become calmer and happier. I was able to dive deeper into my nature, into the Present Moment. I liked that like-minded people from many countries, cities, different ages and professions gathered at the retreat. We became friends and became one family, which was unexpected for ourselves.

These magical landscapes helped us all to become closer to ourselves, to our own nature.

I traveled in the mountains, in fabulous forests, I was led into the Present Moment by the sounds of a mountain river, in which many managed to swim.

At the retreat, we became one family, a big team.

Many thanks to the instructors, organizers, Gennady and the whole team!"

What is a retreat

You will find yourself on the threshold of Awakening or you will cross it.

Instructors of the retreat


I came to practice like many others: I found myself “pinched in a corner”, having exhausted all available known methods for correcting the situation. I started
to radically change life and myself only when everything in my life, including health, family, work, began to simply crumble. Then I realized: either I will change myself (I have time to change), or I will simply die.

After two or three months of classes, I was surprised to find out that I had not died, but had become much healthier! And at some point, something in me switched, I began trying not to run away from suffering and problems, but trying to run towards happiness and much more interesting things that were revealed to me. Life has become meaningful and very interesting ... It has a DEPTH! An understanding has ripened inside me that "since they helped me, it means that I must pass this help to others who need it." This understanding was absolutely natural. From this moment everything began to change qualitatively even quicker ...


I was asked to tell about myself, my strong sides and tricks... I wonder if there are tricks in others? I think Absolute Love is the trick in everyone. 

Anything else is an illusion.  The only thing that is real is eternaty. The soul and its nature are Love. Everything is just tool on the Way. All my attention and my being are directed to get out from the world of games, passing all the subtle worlds and other games - just get out!

This is a call of my Heart, this is my fiery aspiration. I am ready. I love these games very much, they teach me and make myself stronger. However, I am far beyond these.

As Nikita.. I am a researcher. I like to study subtle processes and deepen them. I am a poet. I love to communicate with the Muse as with my only woman who is primary.

It is hard for the spirit to be in the body... There is a constant awareness of something more that hides under the veil. Here I would like to quote the words of Nicholas Roerich: "The abyss is not so terrible for the spirit as the room." These words are about the Infinity of our nature... Do you get it?

I adore the notes of sadness as it is like an art. I love romance. I was always looking for the power and found it here and now.
