Alpine Bliss Retreat | November 12-15, 2020

«When you get out of the driver’s seat, you find that life can drive itself, that actually life has always been driving itself. When you get out of the driver’s seat, it can drive itself so much easier—it can flow in ways you never imagined. Life becomes almost magical. The illusion of the ‘me’ is no longer in the way. Life begins to flow, and you never know where it will take you.» – Adyashanti

Guarda Val | Sporz (Lenzerheide)

from CHF 949 | 3 Nights | English & German

fully booked – waiting list

Do you ever feel tired of holding on so hard? Pulling yourself together, day by day? Struggling with multi-tasking, rushing through your daily chores, gasping for air, longing for a break?
What if you could soften? What if you could let go? What if you could melt into a deeper awareness, shed those rigid harnesses, cloaks and layers – what if you could sink into an ocean of peaceful presence?

How would that feel?

I’m inviting you on a journey. A journey into the deeper layers of your consciousness, your SELF. A journey that encourages you to re-introduce a sense of ease and flow into your life, a journey that enables you to experience the intimate wholeness and connectivity of all.

Drawing from classical Hatha Yoga, somatic movement, embodiment practices and Tantrik philosophy, I invite you to step into a pulsating field of opportunities. Set in a stunning mountain hideaway, this long weekend is designed to offer you a space to dive into, to let go, heal, grow,  reconnect with your inner bliss and move through life with greater ease-fullness.

Experience what is feels like to devote yourself to your SELF.

  • Indulge yourself in a luxurious & nourishing Alpine hideaway
  • Enjoy a long weekend of true self-care and holistic embodiment
  • Explore & enhance a FELT SENSE in your practice
  • Develop an awareness of your entire body
  • Deepen your reflection & awaken your heart
  • Support presence within your SELF
  • Discover tools & techniques to enrich your home practice and daily life

Accommodation & Prices

The Guarda Val is a unique «Maiensäss» hotel allocated in 11 huts and barns that are up to 300 years old. Located 1600 metres above sea level in the hamlet of Sporz, directly above Lenzerheide, the Guarda Val combines the fascination of deep-rooted local alp tradition with a contemporary concept of Alpine design and lifestyle. It is large enough for luxury yet small enough for individuality.

All of the huts and barns of the hotel have been newly refurbished. Contemporary design has been combined with materials from the mountains, particularly wood and stone. While the interior of the historic buildings has been completely renovated, their original facades have remained. 

The Guarda Val skillfully combines luxury, pleasure and personal service with authenticity, simplicity and a genuine mountain experience. It’s the perfect hideaway for those seeking a cosy retreat as a balance to their hectic everyday life, without having to abandon the modern convenience of a 4-star superior hotel.
