    ReNature retreats are multi-faceted and cultivate a heart-based experience of life whereby the mind is regarded as a tool, rather than the author of our story. Yoga, meditation, and breath work sessions will be sprinkled throughout the duration of the retreat, led by our experienced instructor Marion Edler.

    Deep nature connection provides the purest and deepest source of wellness. Nature connection happens by opening up to the senses rather than entertaining the mind. Since the ill-effects of our technological era have become obvious, we acknowledge the essential need of humans for direct nature connection.

    Working with nature’s shapes and materials is more than being creative. It is releasing, relaxing and research demonstrates, it is directly effective on physical, mental and emotional well-being. Be bathed in the sounds and vibrations of Tibetan Singing Bowls, Mantras, Gongs, Shakers & Energy Chime Bars. Let go and feel your body, mind & soul relax and harmonize to the frequencies of the instruments. These vibrations help to rejuvenate your body, inducing a deep, meditative state.

    • Review by L.B. from Germany

      "Before I knew that I was going to participate in the retreat I connected with the spirit of the land at Crann Og, and asked for support if this was meant to be. The images were strong, the calling was clear. From there on everything fell into place. Every email contact was a joy. When I was shown the venue I felt so welcomed and connected easily with the land and the beautiful animals. The tent has been a palace, like every place on this land it carries the loving energy of committed people with a strong vision and doing their labour from the heart. There could not have been a better place for this. I am deeply grateful and see Crann Og blooming and turning into a nature therapy centre. "
