Unwinding retreats

Unwinding Retreat in the Colombian Andes Mountains

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. Oh, the simple things!
  • 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
  • Experience forest baths, that is, mindful, therapeutic walks in ancient forests
  • Enjoy informal “health chats” around a bonfire
  • 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.
  • Partake of enjoyable and relaxing team-building games, that is, competition-free competition
  • Stroll along the cobblestone streets of a 16th-century, very cute town
  • 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

How do we do it?
