re.connect to nature to re.connect to yourself within

I invite you on a journey to experience and deepen your connection with the natural world. slow down, immerse & re.connect, learn & grow. reflect your gifts, passions and skills – and understand where they meet the world. what is your deeper motivation, that drives your, inspires you? where do you draw your strength of spirit?

re.connect to nature outside & within you. awaken your senses as you take in the myriad dimensions of the elements, gradually uncovering the calm and still space within you. as you direct your senses inward you get in touch with your innate self, your deepest desires, your strongest dreams. hear the call which will guide you on the way to a deeply fulfilling and meaningful life.

experience yourself from within, in balance with nature. gain 1 degree shift in perspective, that will change your world.

alpine retreats 2024

alpine nature retreats are dedicated to specific themes, in a landscape that will invite you to re.connect specifically to this aspect of nature outside and within you. 

the following retreats are organised for intimate group sizes (2-4 / 8-10 pers), advertised in german. we speak german, english and french and are happy to welcome you in any of these languages.

15 – 18 aug 2024 | 2-4 TN | übernachtung im zelt
begleitete bergauszeit mit monika

diese auszeit führt in ein mystisches, wildes hochtal der berner oberlands. hier darf sich die kraft der gewässer und die dynamik der naturbildung (noch) frei entfalten. eine von menschlicher zivilisation noch weitgehend unveränderte bergwelt – von unschätzbarem wert, angesichts des aktuellen drucks auf bislang unberührte naturräume: bald soll hier eine staumauer gebaut werden, die diese unbeschreiblich schöne, junge landschaft fluten würde.

is this for you?

  • you are ready for a time out of daily life.
  • you need some time off, to let go of your everyday concerns and whatever normally runs your mind.
  • you enjoy moving through pristine mountain spaces and you would like to deepen your connection to their wild potential.
  • you yearn to tap into their transformative, regenerative power, to experience the beauty of nature, the energy of the elements.
  • you are ready for a journey in nature, to reflect, feel and explore, to understand and remember, and to reconnect with your purpose of being. essentially to find the “home” within yourself.
  • you want to experience the simplicity of being outdoors, carrying everything you truly need in a 15 kg bag on your back. 
  • you appreciate being outdoors, even at night, and you are ready to face the elements, including rain, wind and cold.
  • you feel a longing for connection, for feeling touched and for a deeper meaning in yoiur life. and you long to find access to this depth within yourself.

alpine retreats | requirements

  • physical fitness, and readyness to walk on mountain trails and open mountain landscape (stability, coordination, endurance, strength) at altitudes of up to 2900 m.asl. the differences in altitude per day will be around 500 m; on some individual tours and on the descent into the valley up to 1000 m.
  • readyness to carry your own backpack (approx. 15 kg) for 3-4 hours/day (longer stages in exceptional cases).
  • you will spend 24 hours/day outdoors in the mountains and sleep in a 1/2 person tent or under the open sky.
  • you will encounter the elements and the weather in their pure, unfiltered form, perhaps even close to the limits of your comfort zone.
  • the packing list (which you will receive after registration) contains everything you truly need so that you can be as carefree and connected with nature as possible.
  • your objective is not on physical performance, but on a deep re.connection with nature and yourself. it’s not about climbing as high as possible, but looking as deeply within you as possible.
  • accordingly, we will focus on being, reflecting, perceiving, experiencing, immersing yourself – and most importantly: enjoying.

alpine retreats | what is important to me

  • I deliberately keep the group very small (max. 4 pers) in order to respect the silence of the mountain world and to minimize our impact on nature (noise, tracks, disturbance of the wildlife).
  • at the same time, this enables you to receive individual guidance tailored to your immediate needs, with space for conscious conversations and plenty of time for silence.
  • I guide you in the preparation and follow-up phases as well as on the tour itself. mine is to create a safe space, for you to experience and connect with nature, reflecting on your immediate questions.
  • leave no trace: in all we do, we respect nature and meet her at eye level. we leave minimal traces behind as best we can with the knowledge and empathy we have at our disposal. you can find my perspective in these blogs: “leaving no trace” or “loving nature and yet not harming it“.
  • weather: even in rain, wind and clouds, the mountain world – with the appropriate equipment – allows you to have deep, mystical and wonderful experiences. the changing weather is an inspiring mirror of our own lives. however, in the event of expressly bad weather conditions (high tendency to thunderstorms, too much snow), I reserve the right to postpone or cancel the tour in consultation with the registered participants.
  • In order to protect the pristine natural spaces from overtourism, I deliberately do not publish the exact space in which we will be moving. rest assured that I will guide you into a unique, wild and largely untouched space where you – as a careful and respectful guest – can experience a deep, unique and holistic connection with nature.
