The active meditation outdoor retreat
A silence seminar in nature with a lot of movement inside and outside
The active meditation outdoor retreat [silent seminar]
A different kind of silence seminar
! The retreat was canceled due to COVID-19!
This retreat is about meditation paired with a lot of time outside (including sleeping in a tent). This is the somewhat different silence seminar, because we become active meditations use instead of sitting rigidly on the pillow and weave the whole thing into the nature that surrounds us.
The Active Meditations work on a level that is beyond the cognitive mind. With it, even unconscious inner blockages can be solved very easily without us having to dig into the past and ruminate the old stories. The result is not just greater serenity. Even stubborn patterns that keep getting in our way can be resolved over time. Used regularly, these methods contribute to your inner freedom, more zest for life and a free flow of energy.
Another part of our time together are small teaching units in which you can get to know a self-help tool called TRE®. Regardless of whether you want to reduce stress and anxiety or relieve muscle tension, or whether you are looking for ways to increase your performance, improve your relationships or optimize your mental health - both Active Meditations and TRE offer you that and much more more. And both are powerful self-help tools that you can use yourself at home for the rest of your life.
Here are a few good reasons why it is worthwhile Spending time with us in the countryside:
the Active meditations awaken more passion, fresh energy and strength in you
The wilderness of nature is proven to be beneficial Health and wellbeing
The number of natural killer cells in the blood (against cancer) increases considerably after 2 hours in the forest. The forest researcher Qing Li has proven this.
The fragrant forests, idyllic hiking trails and glittering lakes nourish your soul
The forest helps you to let go of tension and stress away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life
Meet like-minded people who care about nature as much as you do
Get to know other people who are looking just like you
Let your heart rise in the circle of judgment-free and loving attention
Discover new ways to yourself with the nature rituals and tools you learn
Learn the highly effective TRE method to reduce chronic stress
And enjoy the feeling of simplicity and the benefits of the 'back to basics' experience
If that appeals to you, we look forward to seeing you there in 2021.

I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.
The power of nature helps us to get in touch with the inside of our being. The soul of nature reflects our soul deep inside, if we are receptive to it. We get the chance to recognize and develop our own inner nature.
Details about the retreat
The framework is created by 60-minute active meditations. Another part of our time together are small teaching units about effective stress management. We will learn what exactly constant stress does to us and what you, apart from Time out in the forest can still help: A method called TRE® . The program is rounded off with the opportunity to enjoy the surrounding nature to the full. All of that will contribute to the fact that we open ourselves more and more to the magic of nature, the mind is calmer and our center is strengthened.

Why in the forest?
Nature is healing on many levels and it supports us to go inside and 'come down'. Many of us have lost touch with nature and, for the most part, we live very unnatural lifestyles. This retreat should help you to reconnect to nature 'out there' as well as to the 'nature within you'.
And whether we are aware of it or not, we become subliminal influenced by the guiding principles and beliefs of our parents, friends, partners and the subtle suggestions of the mass media. The nature and inner work during this retreat help to wake up from this 'trance' and our inner being to recognize more and more. Then we have a chance to follow one's own inner guidance instead of the guidelines of society, parents, teachers or politicians. And when we are in contact with our soul, we will never harm nature, we will protect it.

Why why why... i do this work
With everything that I offer, my aim is to support you, to recognize the real you, your highest potential live and overcome whatever is holding you back.
I want you Giving impulses for a life according to your own rules, you help you to walk through your life with less anxiety, support you when you let yourself be guided too much by others and attach too much importance to the opinions of others. I want to help you be true to yourself and follow your own truth.
I see nature as a house of God. For me, God also lives in the forest. In every plant, in the wind, in the clouds. The connection to God, gratitude, reverence and trust is what is needed as a framework for this transformation.
The inner work starts where you are right now. That is very different from individual to individual. Participation in this workshop does not guarantee measurable results or the achievement of certain stages of development .

The retreat will take place in the scout center Fly Oak in the Oberbergisches Land, completely quiet at the edge of the forest. The house is very simple though appropriately furnished and no frills. We are surrounded by a wonderful Silence and the house offers us everything we need. Here you can find a few pictures of the area.
