Reconnect Retreats

My retreat programs are simple and authentic. They aim to bring you back to the roots, to kick-start your journey to a vibrant health, amazing-feeling physical activity and joy in who you are and what you do. Hidden in the quiet of the Swiss Mountains or the wild of the South-West Coast of Portugal, I combine the programs with vegan nutrition, adventurous surf and paddle board sessions, meditative walks and much more - depending on who is facilitating the specific retreat with me.

Attention to all the details was perfect. Great combination of yoga, hiking, relaxation with fantastic vegan cooking. In addition I learned all about essential oils and the benefits of herbal teas. Sonia lives a holistic lifestyle and the retreat reflects this. She is very knowledgable on food and lifestyle and the health benefits. I need to go again!

reconnect

Deep inside of us, vibrating and pulsing in every single instant, is a sacred wisdom, a source of life and purpose. Some may call it soul, others haven’t defined a name for this misterious consciousness, but either way we can feel - there is something beyond the pure physical manifestation. Something, that makes us feel alive. Some days merely a feeling, other days a deep longing. Who are we? Why are we here? What is our purpose? Is there a life before and after this life? Many religions have been written and practised, gurus followed, channelings been taken place. We are searching.

But what if I tell you, that you no longer need to search? That everything you ever need to know, is already within you. Right now. Present, speaking to you, communicating continuously, precise and wise beyond any teaching you might find? There is a guidance within everyone of us that is accessible any time. We have just forgotten how to listen. No one is to blame - the forgetting might be part of our souls evolution. But if your longing has brought you all the way to here, reading this, you might be searching to remember.

You might be ready to reconnect. To live a life from within you, dictated by only who you truly are. Following your souls path, your very purpose why you are here, at every moment of your life. There are no coincidences in life. You have been guided all the time. And it has been and it still is YOU, who is holding the steering wheel. We are looking forward to meet you!

body work

On our quest for purpose in life and reconnection with our souls, it happens easily that we get lost in the emotional / spiritual realms, transcending our physical bodys. Yet our bodies are given to us as part of the deal - our soul speaks through our physical manifestation. It is one of the easiest tools for reconnection with who we truly are.

nutrition

How we feed our physical bodys is just as important as how we feed our emotional and energetical bodies. Food, pure physical food, is the basis of our physical manifestation. We literally are what we eat. In this reincarnation, we are given just this one body for a whole lifespan. It is our job to take care of it so it may serve our souls purpose to its highest potential.

self-inquiry

Our thoughts are here to keep us alive. The nevery ending stream of warnings and plannings has its place and serves us well. Yet, for most of us, our thoughts have taken over our whole being. We find it difficult to go beyond and understand who we really are, without that quick judgement and definition of the voice in our head.
