Beyond - A Journey of Breath and Movement

About us

We welcome you to a journey of consciousness and exploration through breath and movement.
A deep experience of letting go of our conditioning and finding new ways to breathe, move and be.

4 Full days in a magical monastery in Provence (France). Surrounded by endless lavender fields and a breathtaking view of the Alpes, we will go deep into the journey.
We will provide a safe space for you to be exactly what you are, to explore yourself and witness others do so too (and it's also going to be a lot of fun).
At the monastery our stay will be taken care of in the most kind and loving way by the owners Dhruv and Annemarie (and really delicious food as well).

About Breathwork

“Breathing consciously is a master key.
It can open your heart to unconditional love.
It can open your mind to understand what’s holding you back.
It can guide you into letting go and experiencing your natural state.
It can show you what real freedom is.”

Breathing is the most basic and important rhythm of life. The process allows us to release our deep tensions and experience unconditional love. When we accept the moment completely we are genuinely free, free from our own cage of limiting concepts.

-What may I experience during the Breathwork sessions?

During the breathing session many physical, emotional and spiritual reactions may occur: you may cry, laugh, feel sensations of heat or cold, feel vibrations and energetic currents flowing through your body.
Many times you may remember significant events that have influenced you during your course of birth and life.
These are common experiences of people around the world, however each person has his/her unique experience and it’s best to come without expectations at all. Allow this method to guide you through a journey of healing. Keep your heart and mind open to experience whatever comes.

-About ALEM

Alem is a Portuguese word and means to go beyond. Going beyond is a never ending process.
ALEM is an ongoing process following several years of research within the fields of various movement arts such as Gaga, improvisation and contemporary dance combined with other practices such as meditation, breathing techniques and more.
ALEMs’ step-by-step approach helps us to peel layers and come closer to our core essence. It is about trust and surrender. The body is our instrument to go deeper, to explore what is beyond the known…

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
