Program

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 your story. Yoga, meditation, and breath work sessions will be sprinkled throughout the duration of the retreat, led by the 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 the technological era have become obvious, the essential need of humans for direct nature connection can no longer go unacknowledged.

Working with nature’s shapes and materials is more than being creative. It is releasing and 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, and energy chime bars. Let go and feel your body, mind and soul relax and harmonize to the frequencies of the instruments. These vibrations help to rejuvenate your body, inducing a deep, meditative state.
