Retreats and meditation workshops in Chingaza for restless from heart

Since a little over a year ago, we have been working in nature tourism and bird tourism with very good results. The people who have come to visit us are impacted by the fog forest and they are the ones who have driven us to develop this new project together with the bird project that we want to share with you today, called: “Retreat and Meditation in the Forest“.

The retreats and meditation workshops in Chingaza are offered from the heart, from our own experiences and awakeness process to approach nature in a different way. With respect, silence and opening our senses, to let ourselves be flooded with that freshness that has the natural and leave behind every weigth.

These mindfulness retreats and meditation workshops in Chingaza consist of some breathing exercises and a walk that we call a forest bath, (inspired by a similar activity developed by the Japanese), we immerse ourselves in the green of the trees, in the dew of the mist and the song of the birds, leaving behind that heavy load that carries our ego.

We are absolutely respectful of different beliefs and that is why everyone is welcome. Please see it as a: meditation retreat, spiritual retreats, mindfulness retreat, silent retreat, insight meditation, silent meditation retreat, silent retreat weekend, silent meditation, meditation weekend without a predefined technique, without a necessary dogma or prerequisite

“Meditating and walking” workshop

At the beginning of the workshop there will be an informative talk and some indications of the route will be given. We will start with some breathing exercises and a greeting to the mountain. The route (called “With my breath I connect with the wind”) will be done in silence, then we will stop, we will share some fruits, to start the second exercise called “In Nature I watch myself”. This will be inside the forest.

The entire workshop will last approximately two and a half hours, the distance to be traveled and the path through which it will be worked will be done according to the group that is present.

Mandala Workshop

At the beginning of the workshop there will be an informative talk and some indications will be given. We will start with a short tour in silence in which we will collect some plant materials from the floor.

We will work our mandala at home in a group and then individually we will start painting each mandala that will be accompanied by live music.
