MEET THE FOUNDERS & YOUR GUIDES
We’ve been there. Working long hours, rarely making time for ourselves, and not listening enough to our inner voice.
Mindfulness and nature were two things that allowed us to see our life from a more balanced perspective. We opened our eyes for the first time and realized that we postponed our true dreams for too long.
As soon as we created space for self-care and learned how to keep stress at healthy levels, creativity and courage flourished. We created Bliss & Stars to share our passions, our long-life learnings, and the experience of self-discovery by living with no fear.
The days are designed to give you plenty of time to slow down and be together.
There are meditations and breathing & relaxation practices.
You’ll spend a lot of time being and exploring the nature of relationships together.
You’ll be counting shooting stars and looking deep into the night sky through one of our telescopes.
There will also be plenty of time to relax by the pool or the river, listen to the birds sing and watch the water flow.
Learn mindful communication skills. Listen without taking things personally or over-reacting.
Be aware of the destructive thought patterns that threaten your relationship. Learn techniques on how to navigate frustration and conflict.
Explore and deepen the capacity to be fully present with your partner. Rekindle the love and intimacy that brought you together.
We offer a balanced, plant-based, wholesome cuisine based in Ayurvedic medicine designed to nourish your body and delight your senses.
Our cuisine is simple, using fresh ingredients from the on-site organic garden or local farmers. Food is part of the retreat experience, including daily breakfast, light lunch, and dinners.
We do not serve stimulants like alcohol.
We cater to all dietary needs.
