Relationship with the Self

May 25-28, 2023

The first prerequisite for any relationship is that we must be able to relate to ourselves properly and with honesty.

There are very few people in the world today who can truly claim to be inwardly complete, who feel adequate in every respect, and who truly believe in themselves. Instead, most of us feel insecure in some way or other.

In order to hide our insecurities and shortcomings, we have all learned to constrain our behavior by playing carefully chosen roles. But sooner or later, usually once we are in a relationship, the strain becomes too much, and the mask begins to slip – the real person begins to show. The results are well known!

Most of us long for a meaningful and uplifting relationship, but if we are ever to have such a relationship, then it cannot be based upon codependency.


In Relationship with the Self, we work from the basis that you cannot expect anyone to love and respect you if you do not love and respect yourself. Therefore, the accent is on commitment, and on what this means for you.

He started as a developer and grew into CEO. Some years later he had everything that describes a success: career, home and family, yet he found himself in crisis. It led him to explore what is outside of the normal understanding of our world and he found a path that stood out for him and resonated as if he had arrived home - the Path of Knowledge as shared by Théun Mares. On his discovery journey, he met Théun’s apprentice Elizabeth Schnugh. His life changed completely and foremost all the relationships that he had. From there he started to build a business with his friend Rain that could become the medium of passing on the source of knowledge and his experience of how to hunt and live that knowledge.
