refuel your heart, body & soul

we experience the power of pristine nature, as we move up through virgin jungle forest. below us, glacial waters thunder down in turquoise beauty. vast untouched mountain landscapes awaken in us humility, awe, and a deep and divine sense of truly being. we experience the comfort of most simple accomodation, providing nothing more – but also nothing less – than our bodies and souls truly need: a warm welcome of our hosts who generously nourish us with simple yet delicious food, and provide us with a clean & dry place to rest.

a unique opportunity to refuel our souls & hearts & bodies, to allow inspiration to flow through us as we step into this channel of connection between earth and sky.
