Events of Balance

Sunrise hike on the Villanderer Alm mountain pasture
Expert: Monika Engl
The first rays of the rising sun are slowly turning mountains, meadows and forests into gentle light. We welcome the new day and feel the power of the everyday new beginning. We activate body and mind in the early morning by water treading in the Kneipp basin. We consciously breath and feel our heartbeat to wake up together with nature. One at the summit, we feel the power of sunrise and the primal trust in this eternal rhythm that gives us confidence and strengthens us. It’s a good thing that we have left our bed to welcome the day!

Deeply rooted as a tree
Expert: Marco Zema
On the Chestnut Trail we hike to the mighty chestnut grove of Moar zu Viersch. We enjoy the gentle spring air as well as the warm sunshine and learn about the great variety of native tree species, as well as the ancient chestnut giants. On closer inspection, oak, ash or pine turn out to be skilled survivors, of whom we can learn a lot. How do they interact with each other and with other living beings? Each tree has its own strategy and its own story that inspires us. Together, they give you a great sense of calm and strength that we can integrate into our lives.
