Step back from your roles and responsibilities in life and recharge in the beautiful Norwegian countryside overlooking Krøderen fjord.
"Slow down to speed up."
Use this annual retreat to slow down and intentionally design the next 12 months. Having a clear vision and action plan is like adding rocket fuel to 2025, propelling you forward to realise more of your dreams and step into life more fully and meaningfully.
You will be supported in releasing what’s holding you back and preventing you from living and creating a life of your dreams. Through gentle and yet powerful exercises you will be able to let go of:
This letting go makes room for new and also half-forgotten ideas, feelings, dreams and desires as you form a vision for the year ahead.
We use the practice of guided meditation together with yoga to cultivate mind and body, increasing self-awareness and consciously entering the new day with focus and intention.
Guided meditation promotes mental clarity and emotional resilience. Yoga helps us work on our flexibility, strength, and balance. Together these practices calm our nervous system, heightening our energy levels as well as improving our focus and concentration. Together we create mental and physical space and stillness to allow our thoughts and emotions to come to the surface and help us connect with our deepest desires.
Wrap your hands around your cup of cacao, close your eyes and breathe in the warming scent of chocolate and spices as you take your first sip.
We open up to receive the multitude of health benefits cacao has to offer us:
We also move from our heads to reconnect with our hearts and our relationship to life. By rising above the day we are open to experiencing more clarity, vision and purpose.
Life is full of challenges and disruptions. The rhythmic sound of the shamanic drum takes us on a journey restoring or reconciling these experiences. It helps us communicate with our inner self to address internal conflicts, heal from past traumas, and achieve a sense of wholeness or balance. Through spiritual growth and insight we move towards a more harmonious and integrated sense of self.
The focus is on the creative act itself rather than the final product as we explore emotions, thoughts, and experiences through paint and colour.
The process of making art like this encourages self-reflection, reduces stress, and promotes communication, offering a unique and effective approach to emotional well-being and personal growth.
The "Five Elements Dance" is a dance form inspired by the traditional Eastern philosophy of the five elements, namely Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether (or Spirit). Each element represents specific qualities and energies, and the dance incorporates movements, expressions, and symbolism associated with these elements. This dance helps us foster a sense of harmony and balance within ourselves, with the group and the beautiful natural setting we are in.
Enjoy the exquisite views over the fjord as you sweat in the sauna, releasing toxins from your body. While the warmth relaxes your muscles you can breathe in this calming, meditative space. The steam leaves you feeling invigorated and joyful as we again connect with our whole being. Don’t be surprised if you sleep more soundly that night after this refreshing experience.
Reflecting on the past year serves as a powerful tool for personal growth and resilience. By acknowledging successes, challenges, and lessons learned, we gain valuable insights. Using this self-reflection you can craft your vision for the coming year. This vision captures your goals and aspirations, acting as a guiding light and compass. To turn this vision into reality, an action plan is crucial. You will identify the high-impact and manageable steps necessary as well as create a roadmap for the coming months. It means our vision becomes a tangible commitment, helping to motivate us as we work with purpose and resilience to achieve our goals.
