2021 SUMMER THEME

JULY Reconnecting with life and nature

  • We welcome a new stage in our life, after 2 complex years.
  • By connecting with our body, emotions and mind, we release old stress and tensions and open ourselves to receive new empowering and nurturing impulses from life and nature
  • By allowing nature to share with us, its balance, harmony and beauty, we merge in a nature-inspired intelligence 
  • By connecting with each other and within ourselves in a circle, we celebrate to be together
