Dear Transcending Matters Community,


We are thrilled to share the incredible success of the Back To Black Retreat held in Portugal, a transformative collaboration between Transcending Matters and Hidden Truth. This enlightening journey, hosted by esteemed individuals Tarun Hari Das, Brother Andrew, Brother Leon, and a team of talented individuals, has left a profound impact on all those who attended.



At the heart of this remarkable retreat was the dedication and expertise of our team members. Sister Michelle, our main cook, skillfully nourished our bodies with wholesome meals that delighted our taste buds. We were also fortunate to have Chef Kev join us, enhancing our culinary experience with his expertise, while Sorrell Queen - Jay Jay mesmerized us with her delectable cakes.


The retreat offered a diverse range of activities to nourish our minds, bodies, and spirits. Sister Laverne, a gifted yoga teacher and Tai Massage therapist guided us through invigorating yoga sessions and provided rejuvenating massages. Sister Letitia, the head coordinator and a talented massage therapist ensured that our every need was met, creating a harmonious environment for growth and self-discovery.


In the realm of personal growth and inner transformation, one individual stood out as a beacon of wisdom and enlightenment during the Back To Black Retreat: Tarun. As the head of Meditation, Pranayama, Life Coaching, NLP workshops, Tibetan Sound Healing, and a revered course instructor for Transcending Matters, Tarun captivated retreat participants with his profound teachings and transformative guidance.


With a commanding presence and a deep understanding of the human psyche, Tarun skilfully led attendees on a transformative journey towards self-realization. Through the practice of meditation, he introduced participants to the power of stillness and inner reflection, guiding them to uncover their true selves. His expertise in Pranayama, the art of controlling the breath, enabled participants to harness their life force energy and attain a state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness.


But Tarun's offerings extended beyond the realm of spiritual practices. As a life coach and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) practitioner, he shared invaluable tools and techniques to reframe limiting beliefs, overcome obstacles, and unlock the potential within each individual. Retreat participants were empowered to break free from self-imposed limitations, discover their purpose, and create positive changes in their lives.



One of the most captivating aspects of Tarun's teachings was his mastery of Tibetan Sound Healing. Through the ethereal sounds of Tibetan singing bowls, he facilitated profound healing experiences. Participants were transported to a realm of deep relaxation and inner harmony as the resonant vibrations washed away energetic blockages, leaving them rejuvenated and rebalanced.


Tarun's profound wisdom and transformative teachings had a profound impact on retreat participants. His guidance paved the way for personal growth, inner transformation, and a renewed sense of purpose. Attendees found solace in his teachings, embracing the journey towards self-realization with open hearts and minds.


Additionally, we had the privilege of welcoming the valuable contribution of Hidden Truth and Hidden Science, two esteemed organizations that provided profound insights during the Back To Black Retreat. Hidden Truth, a renowned black mentorship and wellness company, offered their expertise in guiding individuals towards personal growth, empowerment, and holistic well-being. Their wisdom and knowledge in various aspects of life, such as mental health, personal development, and self-empowerment, added depth to our retreat experience.


Hidden Science, on the other hand, specializes in exploring scientific facts related to food, melanin, and biology. Their unique perspective and research-based approach shed light on the intricacies of these subjects, unveiling a deeper understanding of the physiological and biological aspects of our existence. Their presence enriched our discussions and provided a balanced perspective that combined scientific knowledge with the spiritual journey of self-realization.


We extend our deepest gratitude to Sister Semerah, the dedicated team organizer for both Hidden Truth and Hidden Science. Her exceptional organizational skills and unwavering commitment played a pivotal role in ensuring a seamless and impactful retreat experience. Her meticulous attention to detail, combined with her passion for personal growth and education, ensured that each session and lecture delivered by Hidden Truth and Hidden Science left a lasting impression on our participants.


It is worth highlighting that while Hidden Truth and Hidden Science are more focused on social and cultural education and scientific exploration, their contributions harmoniously blended with the overall retreat atmosphere. The integration of their knowledge, along with the spiritual teachings provided by Transcending Matters, created a holistic and comprehensive retreat experience that catered to the diverse needs of our participants.


The inclusion of Hidden Truth and Hidden Science not only expanded our horizons but also emphasized the importance of bridging different realms of knowledge and understanding. It reinforced the idea that spiritual growth and self-realization can be enriched by a multidisciplinary approach, encompassing both the metaphysical and the scientific aspects of our existence.


We are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Hidden Truth and Hidden Science, and we look forward to future endeavours that continue to blend different facets of knowledge, empowering us on our collective journey of transcendence and self-discovery.


The Back To Black Retreat in Portugal was an extraordinary amalgamation of diverse talents, creating an environment of unity, growth, and transcendence. The memories we shared and the connections we made will continue to inspire and uplift us on our individual paths.


We express our deepest gratitude to every participant, speaker, and team member who contributed to the success of this retreat. Your presence and dedication brought about a remarkable transformation in the lives of all who attended.


As we move forward, let us carry the lessons and experiences gained during the retreat and continue our journey of self-discovery and spiritual growth. Stay tuned for more exciting events and collaborations that will further elevate us on the path of transcendence.

With heartfelt gratitude and best wishes,


Transcending Matters
