This online retreat will be an opportunity to end the year by immersing yourself in the energy of the Divine Light Transmissions and take a deep dive inward.  I strongly recommend setting aside as much practical matters (work, home, school, socialising) as you can during this seven day retreat so that you may gain the full effects and benefits of this inward stroke. I will be joining you in retreat, making myself fully available via email should anything arise that you want to discuss or share during these days.

Across the seven days there will be twenty-five sessions, you can attend all or just some of the sessions although I recommend attending all if you can. Regardless of how many you are able to attend I’d recommend coming to the first session on Sunday 27th at 5pm UK as there’ll be information about the rest of the retreat – a recording of this session will be available upon request if you can’t make it.

You should expect that the 5:00pm sessions each day will be longer in length, all other sessions will last about 30 minutes.

Please arrive promptly to all sessions as I will close the zoom room and start the transmission straight away. I will open up the zoom room 15 minutes prior to the start of each session so that you can get yourself settled and sit quietly in meditation with me ready for the start of the transmission.

You do not need to sign up ahead of time for this retreat (although it’s always nice to have an idea of numbers so feel free to email and let me know you’re planning to attend).

The suggested donation is £250 for the full retreat (or £10 per session).

You can donate whatever is affordable for you, I ask that you get in touch and let me know that’s what you’re doing – please don’t let money be the reason you don’t attend.

Here is a button to donate on Paypal. If you need an alternative payment method just contact me and I can arrange that.

Any questions about the retreat don’t hesitate to email me but also check out the FAQ section below.

FAQs

Here are my suggestions for during the Divine Light Transmission:

Sit comfortably and ground your body – Sit so your body can relax but not laying down to encourage sleep. Sit so there’s no strain on the body. 

Be open and receptive to receive what is in your highest good for your awakening.

Stay out of the mind, stay with felt energetic or bodily experience – Try not to judge or evaluate, don’t look for markers or experiences. Some feel something others don’t, doesn’t matter.

Eyes closed – I personally recommend eyes closed (or relaxed) as it helps the attention to go inward rather than be too distracted with the goings on around you. But experiment with what feels comfortable for you.

Rest afterwards – No jumping into activity as the transmission works on very deep and subtle levels, even if you feel like you weren’t obviously affected by the it on the surface. I recommend at least 15 further minutes of rest once the session has finished.

I strongly recommend putting down all practical, social, work etc. as much as possible

Get plenty of rest – You may notice you’re more tired than usual – this is normal, give yourself permission to rest as much as is needed during the retreat.

Take the opportunity for silence and inward introspection – Meditate or sit quietly as much as possible.

Minimise inputs – I feel this is an important one to mention. Internet, TV, Media, Conversations – these all bring the attention outwards which means you could miss what is coming up from your own depths. When on a retreat it’s an opportunity to put it down and be with what is arising – to actually encourage that even, a lot tends to come up to the surface on retreats and learning to be present and compassionately holding space for it, and yourself helps with the processing of this. Don’t get me wrong… that can be uncomfortable and the mind will beg for distractions…. but it is very much part of and in service to the purpose of the retreat – a deep dive inward.

Journal – Journaling can be a very helpful way to help process what is coming up. Be mindful to strike a balance of how you journal because that can become a distraction too, much like media. I suggest don’t hold on to any of the words, let the journal be the page to let it out and let it go and stay in touch and grounded in your felt experience rather than in the mind while journaling.

Light exercise, walking, yogas stretching – Between each session after you’ve rested. At a minimum I highly recommend before each session stretch and shake out – it’s very good for moving energy and grounding yourself in the felt experience, and connecting with the body. If you’re feeling restlessness and excess energy take a walk in nature to help balance the nervous system.

Stay out of the mind where possible – Don’t hold on to any experience or any expectation of experience. Try not to label, judge or analyse your experiences. Don’t try to control your experience or your mind just bring the attention back to the felt bodily/energetic level of experience rather than in the mind – allow it to come up and out.

Let go and stay open – Be ready to let go of what doesn’t serve you and needs to be let go of.

It’s different for everyone – Everyone will have different experiences so don’t compare. We are ALL receiving what we need in any given moment and I am here to support you all in that individually and as a group.

Physical and/or emotional discomfort – Awakening can be a destructive process for held beliefs and assumptions in the conditioned mind and during an intensive retreat such as this a lot can come to the surface. This is part of the process and it’s important to not feel this is wrong or bad, it’s actually the opposite. However this can get uncomfortable for some in various ways. If you find this happening to you, firstly stop and lay down, listen to yourself, what your body wants. Secondly, don’t judge or go with the sense of fear around what is coming up, give compassionate space for it like you would a small child who is looking for love. Thirdly, get in touch with me… I’m happy to help and support you through what you are going through.

Be KIND and LOVING towards yourself – Be easy with yourself during these days and the immediate days after – things can take some time to settle and unwind.

While the energy, Divine Light (Shakti/Energy) or Pure Unity Consciousness is the same, each transmission can be experienced slightly differently in that we all get what we need in that moment. The Divine Light Transmission does what it needs to do, moves where it needs to go in each one receiving it.
 
As the facilitator for this process (let me be clear: it’s not ‘my’ personal energy but divine light/source/shakti energy) I also let the energy and intuition move me too. During the transmission as I come to notice something in a person, an energetic block or knot maybe, I bring my attention and focus to this area with love and with the intention of helping facilitate the softening, dissolutions and integrations of what is occuring.
 
I start of each Divine Light Transmission with a prayer. Each time it changes slightly as I let the words move and speak through me, but they all have the same general theme and flavour – An intention(s) for those receiving the transmission as well as gratitude to life, to Divine Mother.

Yes, you are free to come to as many or few as you like. I do however recommend attending as many as possible to receive the full benefits of the retreat.

I do highly encourage you to come to the first session on Wednesday 23rd at 5pm UK as there will be lots of information about the retreat as well as the opportunity to ask questions. A recording of just this first session will be available upon request if you can’t attend.

If you can’t make some of the sessions due to timezone differences I offer the option to be ‘add’ remotely. For this you will need to send me a recent photo of yourself from the chest up with a little space above the head AND all the sessions that you will be unable to make it to PRIOR to the start of the retreat to beyondimogen@gmail.com

**Important note about remote Divine Light Transmissions: I DO NOT recommend engaging in other activities while receiving a remote photo transmission. Sleeping is perfectly fine, or if you’re unable to attend due to not being near the internet or something but can rest or sit quietly eyes closed during the time of the session, that is fine too.**

For the 5pm discussion/satsang style meetings every other day I will on request, provide a link to re-watch or watch the session if you missed it.

These will be available for a limited time only to those participating in the course and not available for download.

The sessions available for request are:

  • Dec 27th, Session 1
  • Dec 29th, Session 3
  • Dec 31st, Session 3
  • Jan 2nd, Session 3

Most of the sessions are 30 minutes long – roughly 15-20 minutes Divine Light Transmission followed by silent sitting meditation which allows for the energy to integrate more fully in a grounded way – please stay for the full amount of time.

The 5:00pm sessions each day will be longer with either a longer Transmission or time for Q&As and satsang sharing – see the schedule for the predicted time allowance each day. This is somewhat loose, particularly the days where there is opportunity for satsang as the length of these will be dependant on how many people wish to speak. They will be no longer than 2 hours total and the transmission and silent sitting will still be at the end.

**I open up the zoom room for an extra 15 minutes before each session if you would like to sit with me silently – many find added benefit with doing this.**

So as not to be disruptive for the group I will turn the zoom ‘waiting room’ function on at the start time of the session as I will be promptly starting the transmission/meeting.

What does this mean? It means you won’t be able to automatically gain entry and have to be ‘let in’ by me.

Please note that if I find you are consistently late I won’t admit you to the group so as to minimise the disruption to the energy of the group.

So please be on time!

During the retreat I make myself fully available on email to the group and am happy to answer any questions, and read and respond to any reports. My email address is: beyondimogen@gmail.com

Four of the sessions (3:00 pm on December 27th, 29th, 31st & January 2nd) also offer the opportunity to ask questions in a group setting. The answers to your questions can often be quite helpful to everyone so I encourage you take advantage of these sessions too for this reason. If you’re feeling particularly shy you can either ‘chat’ the questions within zoom (privately or publicly) during the group session or send me an email prior to the 3pm session with your question – where I can read it out anonymously if you’d prefer.

Either way… don’t let your queries go unanswered, even if you’re worried it’s a silly question… those often are the questions that many people are having but are embarrassed or self-conscious to ask!

Ideally yes, at least for the actual Divine Light Transmission it’s much easier for me as I’m able to be more nuanced with the transmission if you have your webcam on.

If this is not possible please make sure you either send me a current photo of yourself from the chest up prior to the retreat starting or set your profile picture on zoom to a picture of yourself.

Retreat Testimonials

" Imogen's presence is like a breath of pure fresh air, which might sound an overused phrase but I've never used it before. When Imogen says she is 'nothing' one can tell she means it and certainly sense it immediately, and her honesty is what's so exciting about working with her. I plunged into a recent retreat without much choice as the force of divine love, presented in such a natural, down-to-earth and accessible way, drew me in and proceeded to give me gifts of deep insight and self-compassion. Imogen is so incredibly unassuming and a powerful mentor for whom I have deep respect and I can even say love, for at the heart of her message is divine love, which is boundless and all-encompassing. "

" We have now attended 2 three day diving deep retreats and recently Imogen’s longer five day retreat. Firstly, we absolutely love the format of these retreats. They involve 15 mins of silent sitting before and after the 15 minute transmission. Quite often the energetic transmission can be felt even before the official transmission begins. It is both palpable and powerful. There are also occasions for live questions during the retreat and Imogen is always contactable by email, if one prefers more privacy. Ideally it would be good to do all the transmissions on offer, but there is absolutely no obligation to do so and even doing one would be better than nothing. Can’t recommend participating in one of these retreats highly enough and we look forward to the next one. We feel certain that these transmissions are invaluable for anyone on the pathless path and who wants to end their seeking. "

" Thank you very much for the retreat this weekend. The format was really nice and every session was beautiful. I have been through various states and emotions through the weekend: vulnerability, extreme tiredness, enthusiasm, energy... And I really liked the afternoon discussions. "

The retreat was great for me, such a strong energy which "gives me back" or "transforms my depression" into peace, joy, more being in the here and now, more deeper in the consciousness of my true nature, of the free being. I'm in truth but nonetheless do and be in the relative life with all its struggling... I enjoyed the energy very much, it is a pleasure for my body, heart, emotions, soul. It's like holiday, recovery from the hectic of relative life, it fills me up, it widens me, it lets me rest in it... it is a great grace that I have the possibility and gift to get it.

" Meeting Imogen and her work has been a great blessing! Being with her in an online retreat has felt as though the volume of Awareness had been turned up, which my body would translate as a vibratory rise, a palpable borderless warmth. Imogen, she's got a brilliant way of clarifying and discerning with you in a sweet, kind and non-judgmental way. I can only say thank you, thank you for your generosity, for the light transmission and for sharing your Imogenness with the world. "

If you want to develop yourself on a deep level and are ready to take the next step into the depth of yourself and into emptiness this one is for you. Imogen is a beautiful, kind and loving facilitator, who guides us all through the whole process with her high energy. I have had many awakenings in my life and I am joyful to find a facilitator who is the real deal. I Can't wait for the next one. "

" Imogen's retreat was exceptionally powerful and brought my life to a whole new level, facilitating a deep change in me and in my life. The purity and power of her transmissions coupled with her beautiful presence of grace bring about a deep transformation that i have never close to experienced anywhere else. It is with joy and a feeling of deep gratitude that I say that I am so glad I have done it and so glad she is doing what she does, the world certainly needs her. And she holds an energy of such kindness, warmth and clarity, that a very safe space for deep transformation is created. Thank you, Imogen, for all that you do! "

" Imogen's trust in Life and her commitment to welcoming everything that arises creates a safe container for her retreats, in which each participant can receive exactly what they most need. If you feel called, don't hesitate to join and claim the gifts that await you. You'll be joining a community of bright lights too, which is an added bonus. "

" This was my second retreat with Imogen. I really enjoyed the first one and felt great afterwards, but didn’t really understand what was going on, as it felt like a process. After the second one. I still don’t know what’s going on 😀, but I feel like these transmissions, truly are divine. I felt a gradual healing and transformation effect. It also helped me with insights into how I have been blocking my own peace and happiness. I am so grateful for these retreats and transmissions. "
