In this post, we will look at how to practice slow living in July. Why? Because summer is about vacation, relaxing, and taking time for yourself and your family. And since the COVID-19 situation in Switzerland has dramatically improved (fingers crossed that it will stay this way), many people plan to travel abroad. And for those who stay at home, I put together a list of three alternative holiday options.
While two of the courses take place in Switzerland, one is online based and you can take it anywhere. I hope you will find this selection as interesting and intriguing as I did.
RECONNECTION RETREAT – 15-18 July 2021, Valais
Take time to reconnect with your child, relax, and create new experiences in the heart of Valais, Switzerland.
The retreat takes place at Montagne Alternative in Commeire. You will have time to connect with nature, breathe fully, practice yoga, enjoy the hammam, go for walks, participate in creative workshops, eat healthily, and much more altogether with your child.
The all-inclusive retreat takes place from 15-18 July 2021. To subscribe and learn more, visit Laetitia Yoga Montessori or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
MAMMA FEEL GOOD – online
My second recommendation is the Mamma Feel Good course created by a friend of mine, Emilie. This free mini-course offers seven days of yoga and meditation to moms who forget to take care of themselves. It promises to help you bring calm, clarity and discover a better version of yourself.
CACAO CEREMONY & CRYSTALLINE SOUND BATH – 4 July, Lausanne
A guided meditation, heart-opening practice, and two crystal sound baths – that is what you can expect from this unique workshop.
A sound bath is a deeply relaxing experience during which the brain releases Theta waves, and profound healing can occur. The cacao ceremony is a heart medicine that the Mayas have used for centuries. Cacao ceremony offers an opportunity to connect to and open your heart in a safe space to facilitate personal changes towards which you have been working. In addition, cocoa is a medicinal plant that helps to heal and teach.
The workshop takes place on 4 July 2021 in Lausanne. To learn more, visit: Liquid Light Healing or Ekabalam.
