What a dream-like and wonderful experience we had last weekend in Schweibenalp!
We stayed at an incredibly unique center, located in the midst of the beautiful Swiss Alps, 4,000 feet high! It was the perfect place to restore our energies and get in touch with our dreaming body, our energy body.
We practiced standing sequences of movements, emphasizing breathing and the opening the chest area. Then, we practiced movement sequences while laying on a mat, focusing on lengthening our connective tissue and recalibrating our nervous system.
We also meditated and spent time connecting to our breath, to our source of consciousness, and to our hearts. Another highlight from the retreat was the food! We shared delicious homemade organic foods that included vegetables from the Center’s Permaculture Garden.
We were blessed to experience different temperatures and weather changes throughout the weekend. We arrived to light rain. The next day was sunny and warm. We just had to take a walk through the forest to a magical green lake!
Fog moved in the next day and we spent the day inside a cloud. Literally!
Some participants experienced “Lucid Dreaming” for the first time, a state of being conscious and aware in one’s dreams.
Other participants mentioned that in the past, they weren’t able to remember their dreams. But, after the first night at the workshop they were able to remember their dreams clearly.
At the end of our weekend, we were moved by listening to feedback from our participants, including Michael who said the experience has been “life-transforming” for him.
After taking so many workshops in the past, I finally feel that I do belong here. In the past I felt isolated. I used to be loyal to others, but never to myself. Now, I’ve set a new intention for myself: to be loyal to myself and to my heart always. I can feel the change within me already and it feels great.
It’s truly amazing to be a part of our wonderful community. For those of you who missed our Schweibenalp retreat and those who joined us, we’ve got something special planned for you next year!
Save the date for July 27th- 30th! We will be hosting a four day workshop in Worcester, U.K. to explore our legacies.
What kind of legacy do you want to leave? What legacy has been left before you? These are the kinds of questions we will explore.
Together, we will acknowledge the gifts of our ancestry, unleash wisdom buried at the core of our life experiences, deepen our knowledge and connect to our higher power.
