(coming soon) 5 Day Inner Dance & Breathwork Facilitator Training, Switzerland
(coming soon) 5 Day Inner Dance & Breathwork Facilitator Training, Switzerland
Inner dance breathwork is a psychotropic sound journey facilitated by breath, music and touch only (no drugs). These sound journeys give an opportunity to explore the inner terrain and map your psyche, then bring it into dialogue through a transpersonal framework.
Its main purpose is to connect you with a deeper sense of meaning on your journey and orient your center towards what is alive in you seeking expression.
This is an immersion and retreat of spiritual practice combined with daily exercise and nutritionally focused food.
Some parts may be challenging, particularly the breathwork and exercise, there is the probability of emotional catharsis and looking into the darker corners of the psyche. So please be prepared to feel some things.

The retreat will consist of 6 days of whole systems medicine for body mind and spirit.

Food will be vegetarian, vegan, raw.
The emphasis will be on simple delicious foods that nourish the body, help with gentle detoxification and meet its nutritional needs without compromising on taste.

What Makes This Retreat Special
We work a lot with altered states of consciousness, and combine that with priming the body through physical exercise, natural movement, calisthenics, and yoga in conjunction with nutritionally optimized food. This way your body can process the information it receives in as comprehensive a way as possible.
We work with small focused groups to develop trust and intimacy and the opportunity to go deep in a safe environment. Our aim is spiritual resiliency and knowing of the self for a more complete life experience.

There are also two private rooms available for extra cost. both of them small but comfortable, still with shared toilet and bathroom.
There is free wifi upon request.
Close to Nature
September will be the end of summer and likely it will still be quite warm. it will be useful to bring something for changes in temperature however as we're in a mountainous area and the weather can be quite changeable.
The weather will likely be good!
Electricity and outlets
Switzerland has it's own eletrical outlets that are different to Europe, although a lot of european devices fit them. They take two or three circular pins, best to bring a universal adaptor although we also have some here if necessary.
How to get there (flights, airport transfers, buses, trains)
The best airports to fly into are Basel, Geneva or Zurich, Bern is the closest major town but usually flights to there are a bit more pricey.
From any of the airports you can find train connections to Spiez or Interlaken. From there a train or bus to Darligen is available. We're a 5-minute walk from the train station.
What to bring
Bring comfortable clothes you're able to do exercise in, comfortable shoes to walk in, a blanket and yoga mat if you like to travel with them. If you have a journal you like to use you can bring that too.
What’s Not Included in This Package
Travel to the center
The Energy School in Switzerland started its project in June 2016, inspired by Bahay Kalipay, the House of Happiness, in the Philippines, and Panditarama Vipassana Center, in Lumbini, Nepal.
Our school is an old farmhouse, a traditional Swiss chalet, that is being transformed into a retreat space to run yoga and meditation programs.
We have long dreamed of this - a school and retreat center and community of people living, teaching, learning, and sharing in the spontaneous moment, in authentic togetherness, trust-filled in the presence of what is sacred and simple in the nature that surrounds us.
With the support of friends and donors, and full of love, we welcome all people to its simple and cozy retreat space.
As a community of spiritual seekers, artists, healers, teachers, and explorers of a holistic lifestyle from around the world, we share the vision of living in harmony with each other, the community, and nature.
We do this by making conscious choices towards the evolution of body, mind, and spirit that honors the various levels of preparedness of the individual.
Our intention is to support your path even after you leave our school.
We encourage those who wish to undergo personal transformation through a range of modalities, including Inner Dance, yoga, meditation, and earth consciousness, to stay with us for support on their inner work.
Guests can also join as stay-in practitioners who would like the freedom to take part of and contribute to the programs according to their own flow.
While our doors are always open to returning family members, we honor your journey by providing you with tools to use when you reintegrate back to your own homes.
It is difficult to speak of the living memories of the thousands of visitors and residents from Bahay Kalipay, in the Philippines, which inspires our project and who have blessed that space with their love and their light.
The family heart has now expanded to Switerzland, continuing the tremendous transformation processes that have happened, and that is forever a cast on the foundations of this place we lovingly call the Temple of Trust.
We are honored by every single presence that has graced these humble hallways of healing. We are deeply grateful.
We imagine what Earth would be like if it functioned on trust. This is our purpose for existing. To see how far trust might take us. In our many experiences, trust leads to two things.
Deep healing happens here.
Often in unexplainable ways, the kinds of yoga, detox programs, fasting experiences, silent days, our nature journeys, and our inner dance courses take place because of the ways in which we support your capacity to surrender.
This is our dream and our purpose - to create a place where you can just let go of yourself. Understanding takes place. Maybe we often call it intuition, consciousness or insight.
However it arises, a knowing descends in the unexpected conversations, the walks to the lake or during yoga and meditation practices. This is our own happiness.
If you can step away from our school both healed and in your own insight, we too are healed and in a greater understanding of who we are and why we do what we do.
