Stop and listen deeply into yourself, into what is around you in order to understand what is there. Learn to just listen, without reacting. Learn to listen the music of the silence, the constant movement, the spaciousness.
Dive deep into that silence to be able to listen deeper and more clearly to your highest intention in life. Once we learn to listen into ourselves we can listen genuinely to others.
We have decided to change the remuneration formula for all our retreats. Now the retreat rates include only full board accommodation, taxes and accident and liability insurance. Teachings and activities are offered on donation basis. In this way we make the experience more accessible for those who are in a more delicate financial situation. This is a great opportunity to cultivate generosity and trust.
All meals made with love in our vegetarian kitchen.
6 nights of accommodation (except the 'without accommodation option').
All taxes, public liability and accident insurance for activities: hiking and yoga.
5 guided meditation sessions.
6 yoga and movement classes.
1 tea ceremony.
1 deep relaxation session.
4 guided meditative hikes.
2 meditative long hikes of half day in Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park.
Yoga classes are for all levels of practice. The sessions combine Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga principles, as well as movement and mobility exercises.
There is one yoga class per day. The sessions are usually dynamic, except after the long meditative hikes there are gentle yoga classes.
Yoga classes are progressive, variations for different levels of practice and particular limitations are always offered.
Meditative walks and hikes are esencial practices in our retreats. They are very simple and accesible for everyone. They help us to understand, through experience, our deep connection with nature.
It makes us notice in each step and in each breath, that the energy that exist inside us it is just the same as the energy that exists out there. Nature is our greatest teacher, silence and deep listening helps us enrich the experience She offers.
There will be a daily 90 minute meditative walk in nature, opening the senses and developing mindfulness.
Two days will be dedicated to meditative hiking, starting just after breakfast and coming back for a gentle yoga session. It is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the the Ordesa National Park or surrounding areas.
Everyday there will be guided meditation sessions, in the morning and some nights before going to sleep. The best way to start and finish the day.
We practice simple techniques that are easy to carry on at home. We use universal elements to all of us as concentration objects, such as the breath, the body sensations, sounds, etc.
A moment of silence to connect with nature, with yourself and with the group. Sharing a bowl of “living tea” we deepen all the richness that dwells in “the way of tea” (Cha Dao).
We give ourselves the opportunity to make from something ordinary something extraordinary and full of meaning.
In Sanskrit, Sat means truth and Sang means group or community.
Satsang is a gathering to share our concerns, questions, and our deepest insights. It is also a time to meditate together, contemplate nature and sing meditative songs or mantras.
Karma Yoga is Yoga in action = finding skillfulness and integration in any action.
We bring the principles of Yoga in everything we do. We invite you to practice Karma Yoga by helping us with simple tasks of the house as fetching water from the fountain, chopping vegetables, drying dishes, etc.

HOW MUCH AND HOW TO DONATE?
At the end of your stay you will be able to value what you received and offer a donation, in cash or credit card, according to your possibilities.
We like this idea because it makes it accessible to more people and according to each person’s possibilities. It also allows those in a more favorable situation to help those in a more difficult situation.
Given that “the donation” can cause confusion, we indicate some suggestions for you:
Your donation will allow us to keep this project alive. More important than the amount you donate, is the intention with which you do it.
