About This Event

We are dedicated to helping people to find themselves exploring deeply the sense of life and the essence of life, to be reconnected to the YOUniverse and the outer world to reach a sustainable harmony thanks to a holistic vision. We are inspired by the light of different disciplines in order to reflect it harmoniously to people. We are proposing various principles, values, perspectives to apply a new grid of reading and co-writing the Great Book of Life. 

Our Approach:

We propose a holistic approach and a new vision with a complete accompaniment. We guide you on your journey to find your own way with theories and practices. The goal is to present you different keys to open up the doors you want and get daily tools to achieve permanently a stable harmony through inner and outer fullness. There is a common thread in the entire pattern of the organization creating at the end a luminous and beautiful big picture. We explain and establish bridges in between the different activities to show that all is linked and entangled. This journey to reach YOUnity passes through different steps of initiations, introductions to new perceptions and new experiences. The ultimate goal is you find yourself and find back your “natural nature” and your balance.

The holistic approach like the tree of life through the branching/arborescence reveals a new perspective in the light of different new ways of teaching putting in practice the interconnection of the activities and the disciplines as a whole. There is a common thread between them which corresponds to a subtle and progressive ascent to the full senses. Systematically we apply the mindfulness to reconnect our self through the triptych of the harmony of the body, the mind, and the soul to be horizontally and vertically balanced. 

Shambali Retreat is limited to a small group with a maximum of 20 people preserving the proximity for the people to know each other and beyond with accompaniment from the practitioners providing a permanent availability. Our travelers and guests most of the time become friends or even part of the big family and community Shambali. The goal is to set up bridges, a solid network on the long-term run among us. In the spirit that we are not ALONE we are ALL ONE…
