STRESS-FREE MOUNTAIN RETREAT

One week at Passadhi Center in Villa de Leyva, Colombia

There are processes in life driven by a HIGHER FORCE, which help us remember who we are, rediscover our essence, harmonize our well-being, and reconnect with our truth

This is one of them…

What are we going to do?

  • Leisurely savor every single moment: smell the grass after the rain, listen to cowbells, observe the majestic mountains, and taste a peach freshly picked from the tree.
  • Temporarily erase urban memories of hurriedness, traffic, hustle & bustle, and smog
  • Nourish ourselves with fresh food of vibrant colors and flavors, grown according to tradition
  • Enjoy an informal chat over dessert about the world’s oldest and most effective diet up to date
  • Meet other souls with similar concerns to ours, curious, honest, and eager to share and learn
  • Delve into the essence of life, the essence of the Inner Being through engaging existential, esoteric, and spiritual conversations but without entering into dogmas or theories from faraway schools.
  • Calm that restless mind that drives us crazy so we can relax and see things calmly, without so much drama.
  • Participate in ancestral rituals in alliance with our hostess—Mother Nature–, to be reborn and recognize other souls like us.
  • Do a little yoga and contemplation but in an easy way, without comparisons, without any desire to do it right or wrong
  • Slow down and relish life.
