MEET THE FOUNDERS & YOUR GUIDES
We believe that disconnecting from nature drives us to insanity.
We’ve been there. We spent the majority of time within the four walls, offices, and shopping, restaurants, etc. We moved between these confined spaces in a car. Home – office – shopping – home – office … and maybe a fitness center with no windows but many screens.
In the end, nature became an abstract concept that could be seen on TV.
Mindful contact with the natural environment allowed us to relax, reconnect with our roots and each other. Spending time in nature is the best way to relax.
Observing playing wild animals, clouds passing by, the river flowing, or a dead bird brings us to realize that we are part of nature, that we are nature itself.
The days are designed to break routines and repetitive habits.
Our days will be filled with plenty of time in nature. We’ll hike, swim, meditate and take naps in nature.
Nights are dedicated to restorative sleep. But before you lie to rest into our luxurious, 100% natural beds, we’ll take you on a stargazing journey, exploring constellations and galaxies.
We’ll count shooting stars and we’ll look deep into the night sky through one of our telescopes.
There will also be plenty of time to relax by the river, listen to the birds sing, and watch the water flow.
Completely rejuvenate & restore your mind and body
Be more relaxed and refreshed than you’ve ever been
Unplug and experience all that Mother Nature has to offer
Meet yourself as you are and reconnect
