More and more people feel that the world is out of sync, – not only in the epochal year 2020 – and that we, the human inhabitants, have lost our connection to the planet, to our natural environment, to our fellow creatures, the animals, and also to our own inner nature, and therefore to ourselves. It seems to us that we have misplaced our inner compass on the way to the predatory exploitation of nature, which increasingly demonstrates the exploitation of ourselves, our inner resources, our inner strength, and ultimately the salvation of our souls. For centuries, even millennia, ancient shamanistic cultures – be they from South America, from Africa or Asia, or indeed, from our own European continent in pre-christian times (the Mysteries of Eleusis), which western „scholars“ later disparagingly called the „primitive cultures“ of savages – have, for eons, known of this deep connection between mankind and nature, and have honoured and cultivated it through ceremonial rites. For this purpose, sacred plants were – and where possible are still – used, which can reveal a way of living in mindfulness and respect for and with nature and which expand and open consciousness for spheres beyond logic and reason, which have become destructive despots instead of useful aides and are blind to the wide, even infinite cosmic, spiritual space which surrounds us and is within us. So we offer monthly weekend ceremonies (FR to SU) and 1 highlights of the year in October: the 5-day retreat.
