Alpine Bliss Retreat – Engadine | July 1-4, 2021


«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

Hotel Castell | Zuoz

from CHF 879 | 3 Nights | English & German

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? What if you could rest, relax and replenish, surrounded by a stunning Alpine scenery?

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 spa hotel, 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 spa hotel
  • Connect with nature and the stunning scenery of the Engadine
  • Enjoy a long weekend of true self-care and holistic embodiment
  • Explore & enhance a FELT SENSE in your practice

Accommodation & Prices

Hotel Castell is a place where Art Nouveau and modern architecture, tradition and innovation, nature and art, fine dining and well-being come together beautifully.

On Chastlatsch Hill, just behind the hotel, traces were discovered of a settlement dating as far back as the late Bronze Age. Consequently, the area is often referred to as “power place”. 

The Castell was originally built as an alpine sanatorium in 1912/13. The architect’s son created hiking trails around the hotel and built the first heated pool in the canton. In the early years, celebrities from culture and commerce were the illustrious guests – such as the Bavarian heir to the throne or the writer Stefan Zweig.

In 1996, the Castell Zuoz AG with its principal shareholder Ruedi Bechtler acquired the Castell. Bechtler enhanced the house with his personal art collection, developed on-site projects with famous artists and organised special art events. As a lover and collector of contemporary art, he has turned the Castell into a unique venue overflowing with inspiration.
