Adventure Retreat | Nature | Authenticity Circles | Authentic Relating Games | Mindfulness | Silence | Meditation | Alsace | France | 5 days
What we will do
We will spend 5 days full of connection, light-heartedness, ease, adventure and magic in one of the most beautiful camping sites in Alsatian France. A relaxed space where we can decelerate and leave all the stress behind. In the mornings we will meet in the Authenticity Circle on the camping site with the possibility to experience to be fully seen and listened to, dissolve projections and connect to our hidden potential. Furthermore there will be Authentic Relating games, Meditation, Mindfulness exercises and much more. After the activities which might also be in the early afternoon we will visit some stunning places in nature where we will walk in silence for a while to connect further with ourselves and explore the area. Towards the end we will lift the silence and the group can gather to take pictures or exchange about the experience.
In our modern society it is very common practice to communicate and relate in an invasive way without anybody even noticing because it seems so normal. When we are in a hard place and turn to somebody we will mostly be met with imperatives, advice or quotes borrowed from the wise which is mostly not what we really need. What would be really helpful is to be accompanied through our emotions compassionately instead of being offered a solution. To feel seen, heard and accepted and our state and feelings to be witnessed and validated.The Authenticity Circle offers exactly that. A space where we can express ourselves in any way we like without anybody interrupting or commenting. Be it with emotions or personality traits that we have never shown to anybody, a story from our life or a gift or talent we have been shamed or ridiculised for and therefore need a safe space to dig it out again and bring it back to life. For a determined time frame the space is yours. Unsolicited commenting is an absolute no-go and people who violate that guideline during or after or interrupt might run the risk of having to leave the group. After you have finished you can state how you wish to proceed. If you wish for the rest of the group to remain in silence forever. Or share the impact you had on them. Give suggestions or ask questions. You are free to chose.
