Retreat in the Nature of Tenerife

A training in awareness, sincere communication and deep connecting

Wind, clouds,  trees, grass, stones, rocks, the ocean … all oft hem have a lot to tell us and they are willing to share their wisdom with us. What is needed, is a deep listening. An open mind and internal space.

By practising a direct, conscious attention towards and in nature in this retreat we will deepen our awareness, spontanety and intuition. Basically it´s about healing our connection to nature, because in our experience that connection in most of us humans of the northern hemisphere exists merely superficially.

We will spend every day some hours in the wild nature of this volcanic island – each day at a different well chosen location. In guided improvisations and exercises we will explore and experience these locations intensively with our body-mind-souls. It´s important for us to create a concentrated and at the same time playful-light atmosphere, which allows healing spaces for personal processes to open quickly and easily. Our inner children are invited to show up in all their colours, shining in happiness. Finally again they are allowed to feel without any judgement, they are allowed to dance and sing on this wonderful earth.We practise a culture of hugging and relating, of honest listening and direct sharing, of forgiving and naming in courage.

This we practise in clearly structured sharing circles as well as in free improvisations. Because in our experience remaining awareness requires spaces for creativity and playing as much  as a continuous focus, inner work and meditation.

To us practised spirituality means taking responsibility, practising self-love leading into compassion, following the path of joy and lightness.

About us

We have been living together with our small son Arun close to Nature in the island of Tenerife since 2016. As a couple, we lead a full-consciousness relationship.

We are committed to each other while aware that we are both free beings. We continuously take part in a live interchange. We practice sharing on a regular basis and we communicate with utmost honesty, including telling each other the uncomfortable truths. We both accept our individual responsibilities.

With the passing of time, we have therefore gotten to understand and accept ourselves as well as each other. In this way, we give each other permanent support for developing as human beings. We have in common our spirituality, love of nature, our readiness to meet other people and remain interconnected with them, and the joy of cultivating a more affectionate contact among human beings including frequent hugs!

Our individual professional skills converge on the very essence of our joint work. During our get-togethers, we seek to be at the same level as our participants and we encourage them to take part in decision-making processes. We strive to create a secure environment where we can all be ourselves and can all bring out all that is inside us.

To us, that is the meaning of healing!

We would be delighted to share those moments with you!
