We are looking forward to a week of physical embodiment practice, focused contemplation, dialogues, unity awareness and an evolutionary process of transformation, accessed from a perspective of spiritual insight.

To conclude this very special week, on Saturday we will have a full day seminar and a joyful community get-together to celebrate the evening after. If the weather allows, we will have a BYOB BBQ by the lake.
