Yoga & Nature Retreat in Schweibenalp

Schweibenalp – an oasis of inspiration in the heart of Switzerland

Join us for this ultimate Yoga & Nature Retreat at the center of the unity Schweibenalp, located in the Bernese Oberland at 1100m, overlooking the turquoise Lake Brienz. This is an event exclusively arranged for a small group where we will indulge ourselves in yoga and meditation, healthy vegetarian food and time to enjoy Nature.

As a living and working community, the center of the unity Schweibenalp hosts retreats and seminars, and maintains the permaculture gardens. They are part of the Global Ecovillage network and have been contributing to the development of a holistic lifestyle and universal spirituality since 1982.

With its 20 hectare area, Alpine Permaculture Schweibenalp is the largest alpine permaculture project in Switzerland. In their education centre they impart knowledge of permaculture as an integrated planning system and vital philosophy which addresses all levels of a population. They produce a wide range of herbal products, plants and seeds. In their perennial nursery they cultivate with a lot of love and dedication a wide range of permaculturally interesting plants. Their plants thrive at 1100m and are planted, tended and harvested by hand.

Here is a short introduction video of this wonderful venue:

The center of unity Schweibenalp is a space for universal spirituality. The different traditions of wisdom have a common place of silence and power – the temple of unity. There take place daily ceremonies, kirtan / mantra singing and silent meditation. The fixed dates of fire ceremonies / Havan can be found on their website. Everyone is welcome here with their own religious and spiritual practice.

The picturesque guesthouse with its 90 beds was built in the early days of Swiss mountain tourism. The guest rooms are simply and lovingly designed. On each floor there are newly built mixed floor showers and toilets. All meals are vegetarian and organic, when possible with regional products. Depending on the season, herbs and vegetables from the permaculture gardens are used for the meals.
