Everything is happy about brighter days, warmer nights and a blossoming, colorful and fertile nature. Let´ s prepare to celebrate!
We will be lucky to have a macrobiotic catering. A macrobiotic diet is fixed on ideas about types of food drawn from Zen Buddhism. The diet attempts to balance the yin and yang elements of food and cookware. The core of the macrobiotic lifestyle is nutrition. A well-balanced diet leads to a balanced state of Qi in the body. All foods are classified according to their energetic properties in yin (expanding), yang (astringent) or balanced. Major principles of macrobiotic diets are to reduce animal products, eat locally grown foods that are in season, and consume meals in moderation.
The bodywork sessions will teach you a basic shiatsu full body treatment. Originally from Japan, Shiatsu derives from the terms "shi" for "finger" and "atsu" for "pressure". The roots of Shiatsu come from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is used among other things for headaches, digestive problems and circulatory disorders. According to the understanding of TCM, the life energy Qi plays an important role. It flows in energy channels (meridians) through the entire body, thus influencing the function of each individual organ. If there is an energetic imbalance at one point in the body, physical and mental discomfort can result. The shiatsu therapist massages these points along the meridians. The energy flow will be reconciled and the self-healing powers of the body stimulated. Purely physically the massage increases the circulation of muscles, skin and connective tissue. A shiatsu massage stimulates the autonomic nervous system and has a balancing effect that can be soothing or stimulating depending on the type of stimulation.
Our retreat is hosted by the beautiful Chez Zen
