20-22 Aug 2021, Ladánybene

Working through ups and downs, the opening up and closing of the world multiple times during the past year, we may have reflected on our ways of being. At times, we may have felt cut off, numbed and perhaps separated from our deepest sense of joy and belonging.

You are not separate. You never were. You never will be.

Sebene Selassie: You Belong – A Call for Connection
During this retreat, we will aim to find ease and a sense of belonging, by first looking at parts of ourselves that we may have been pushing away. The trees surrounding us, the pure air, the water that we can float and play in will be our partners on the journey.

Are you ready to start finding your way back to belonging?

While observing the main hygiene rules to keep ourselves safe, we will offer you a safe space to explore and play with the help of mindful movement, aquacontact, sauna sessions and simply being in nature.
From 222 EUR, including room and board, use of the pool and sauna.*
Book at this link now as the places are limited to 12 people. We accept bookings until 9 August.

Registration and cancellation policy
The retreat takes place with at least 6 and maximum 12 participants. To ensure health and safety, most activities take place outdoors. We observe a high level of hygiene and ask that you use your own mat and blanket/yoga block during practice, and regularly wash your hands with soap.
As retreat spots are limited, you can ensure your place by paying the entire sum of the retreat. Cancellation is fully refundable until 10 days ahead of the workshop. For cancellations between 9-5 days before the retreat, we keep a cancellation fee of 18,000 HUF (50 EUR). Within 5 days of the retreat, there are no refunds.
What is included:
  • 5 guided meditation sessions
  • 4 yoga sessions

  • optional Thai yoga massage workshop
  • 7 delicious vegan meals
  • fruits and tea
  • board in shared rooms or in own tent
  • use of swimming pool and sauna
  • optional aquacontact session at extra cost
What is aquacontact?
It is like a moving meditation and subtle massage practiced in water. Anyone can participate in it; you will be guided by a certified facilitator (Niki, Napmajor’s owner) who takes you on a journey of floating, dance and stillness in a pool. As the water surrounds the body, you may feel embraced, supported and weightless, and like you belong.
Aquacontact can be very helpful in relieving stress and anxiety both on a physical and mental level, and arriving at wholeness and rejuvenation. You can book sessions with Niki at an extra cost.
