150,00 €
Join Peter ONLINE for a 5 day immersion in the integral non-dual teachings of The Fire of the Heart and Spiritual Celebration of the New Year.


If you have spent any time on a spiritual path you have probably experienced moments or periods of Awakened Consciousness to some degree and tasted the profound and liberating Freedom, Happiness and Love that is your own True Nature. But probably, as is the case for most people, the insight, clarity and joy that may have liberated you in your highest and deepest moments, tends to gradually fade away, often leaving you wondering where it came from and whether it is actually possible to become a living, breathing expression of your deepest understanding.

You have the opportunity to join this 5 Day New Year Retreat ONLINE in which Peter will take you on a journey that can lead you directly into a sustained process of Spiritual Awakening. The progressive and integral non-dual teachings of The Fire of the Heart that Peter offers will enable you to close the gap between your deepest intuitive knowing and the actuality of the life that you are living in the world. 

As an ONLINE participant you will receive the recordings of all sessions in the afternoon and evening of each day so that you can follow along with the retreat as it happens. You will also be sent written material that will be used on the retreat and have to opportunity to ask questions via email and receive Peter's verbal answers.

The Spiritual Awakening that you will experience during this Retreat is the liberation of your awareness from its current habitual patterns of perception. We have all been conditioned to see, think and feel in unexamined ways that create a very convincing illusion of reality that few human beings ever fundamentally question.

On this Retreat you will enter into a profoundly alive, open and powerful field of Consciousness catalyzed by the meditation, inquiry and embodied embrace that Peter will share. Through your own wholehearted participation in this field of Consciousness you will be released from familiar mental patterns and conditioned limits on feeling and you will begin to experience a Transcendent Freedom, Peace and overflowing sense of True Fulfillment that will take you beyond anything you have ever known.

This retreat will be based around some central themes in Peter´s new book The Fire of the Heart, which is a penetrating and profound journey into the radical immediacy and evolutionary potential of Spiritual Awakening here and now. Anchored in a simple yet illuminating approach to True Meditation, the Awakening Process that Peter describes is direct, contemporary, and includes the totality of manifest existence in its integral embrace. His writing is fluid and accessible for beginners with no previous experience of meditation or the spiritual path, and also reveals a subtlety about the nature of mind and non-duality that offers infinite depth for even the most experienced aspirants.

This book is groundbreaking. It gives a deep insight into the question: what is Spirituality? It is written for beginners as well as for advanced practitioners, as it takes one on a journey into the existential question ” Who am I?” and the implications this has for human life. It took me deeper and deeper into an Unknown what is evolving itself. It took me to the Heart Itself. It took me to the clear recognition that the journey never ends and yet is already complete.
Jutta Weiske, Germany

This book is a must for any seeker that truly wants to become a finder. It is a guide to ignite the Fire of the Heart, with a clear exposition of the human predicament and concrete directions for practices that best support stabilizing Spiritual Awakening. It beautifully impels you to radically transform from a self-serving orientation towards Life to surrender into The Power That Knows The Way.

To summarize:

In this Retreat you will experience:

  • A profound and simple approach to True Meditation as a Direct Doorway to Spiritual Awakening
  • Penetrating Teachings that will enable you to observe, understand and ultimately transcend the patterning of the psychological and cultural ego
  • Tools for Self-Inquiry that will give you consistent access to Non-Dual Consciousness to every moment
  • Spiritual Practice in a context of no-seeking
  • The Transformational Alchemy of the Fire of the Heart
  • A spiritually charged and highly creative space to explore the deeper implications of Collective Awakening with others


What has attracted me was the clarity and distinctness of the message conveyed by Peter Bampton. A simple, direct message, without dogma, and without the esotericism of the “New Age” culture, a real breath of fresh air. Peter takes us to the foundation of what true spirituality is, at the same time without taking our feet off the ground and leading us to take responsibility for the exercise of our personal and collective power. We are essentially challenged to ask the truly important questions: “Who Am I?”, “What makes me Suffer?”, “What is it to be Happy?”, “Am I Free?”…It is also a proposal for personal and collective freedom, of contextualization in the face of our accumulated cultural burden, and openness to a new paradigm of evolutionary consciousness. A proposal that can break down the barriers that separate us from our essence, from others, and from the “reality” we experience.
