I was looking for a seminar that does not give me more theoretical input (head work), but through exercises shows a way to more well-being and myself. I found a little time out in a beautiful ambience, first class dinner together in the small group with informal, intensive exchange (if you wanted). Above all, I was inspired by Thomas (our very professional trainer), who with a soothing voice and warm charisma taught me as a "beginner mind" an approach to meditation that really let me switch off and relax in the few days. Also the organization in advance was very good (from the first request to the packing list). Many thanks for that! Clear recommendation! My colleague will participate in a seminar in the fall and will certainly return enthusiastic.
This seminar was an inspiring and profound experience for me. Led by Thomas, it offered a unique approach to increasing personal resilience and rediscovering inner self qualities.
The practical exercises and meditations offered were profound and helped me to develop a deeper understanding of myself.
I found the mindfulness exercises especially valuable in helping me learn how to deal constructively with difficult thoughts, feelings, sounds, and body sensations. These skills are of great value in today's hectic world and helped me to maintain a clearer view of life's changing circumstances.
The daily free time for hikes and walks by the sea were a great complement to the seminar content. The quiet and natural surroundings of St. Peter Ording provided a great backdrop to reinforce what I had learned.
Thomas was extremely knowledgeable and empathetic. His guidance and support helped create a trusting and supportive community among the participants.
Overall, the seminar was a great experience that helped me build resilience and learn valuable tools for a more satisfying life. I highly recommend this seminar to anyone seeking inner transformation and mindfulness.
Thank you very much for the beneficial and inspiring silent retreat by Wege zum Sein, which I can rate overall as fabulous or with the grade 1 with asterisk!
About the seminar leader:
Martin's authentic, open and also space granting attitude was very carrying for me and still has an effect with his calming voice. The structure of the seminar picked me up very well, as Martin led us deeper and deeper into the meditations in sitting and walking over time and also let us practice independently on a regular basis with his presence, so that I can now transfer this very well into everyday life on my own. In addition, Martin always included very inspiring texts in the meditations, which further deepened my understanding of how and why to meditate. His singing bowl meditations had the effect of a calming massage.
Martin also provided an excellent atmosphere during the exercises, which also had a very positive and supportive effect on the atmosphere within the group.
The seminar was characterized by a good mixture of guided as well as independent meditations, guided body exercises and valuable hints for practice. Between the individual program points there was ample opportunity for walking in the adjacent Bettenburg Landscape Park. The very clear, binding structuring of the seminar paired with the connecting, very warm, open and empathetic manner of the seminar leader led to the fact that the participants were obliging and punctual to the individual seminar units on site. I was very happy to take advantage of the opportunity for a one-on-one meeting and also benefited from the appreciative, empathetic manner and the practical suggestions of the seminar leader, which were tailored to my needs.
I am very happy to recommend the Wege zum Sein silent retreat to others and will be very happy to come back again.
About the accommodation:
Bettenberg Castle and the surrounding area is a perfect place to come to rest and relax in nature. The cuisine was excellent (vegetarian and vegan on request). The management and staff of the castle were very friendly and the entire facility is very lovingly designed and invites in itself to stay.
Many thanks for everything!
Thank you Florian, you have radiated a very great peace. In combination with your approach of the inner family system, I have finally found a way to implement what I have set out to do. The tranquility in Kleinwalsertal has again strongly supported this.
The instructors are competent, friendly and responsive to the participants. With the interesting and friendly group, the 3 days - in which we learned, experienced, laughed and talked a lot - felt like a long vacation. Thanks to the great coaches, I can take this feeling into everyday life. A great mixture. Highly recommended.
It was again a week full of insights, knowledge and impulses, for the first time at Berggasthof Almagmach. Great praise to Marco and his team, accommodation and kitchen performance were impeccable. The daily program consisted of a mixture of mindfulness exercises combined with beautiful hikes. Florian again gave so much to all participants and also showed us the beautiful Allgäu mountains. I can recommend the time out without reservation.
I/we enjoyed the time out in the Allgäu very much. Florian is a very good companion in his calm and mindful way.
The intensity surprised us a little - we assumed more "free space" - but we could have taken it:)
In sum, it was a very enriching and beautiful experience, great praise to Florian.
Best regards Utta & Hannes Fritz
I have been there for the 2nd time and it has brought me a bit further. Pausing and reflecting is sometimes not easy, but in the vacation seminar you experience together, in an intensive week with great people in valuable conversations and hikes, connectedness, joy, perspectives ... I would say, a path to being.
Many thanks to Florian and the whole wonderful group.
The seminar was a very valuable experience for me and a time out in which I could really shut down and practice mindfulness. The guided meditations and exercises in combination with nature experiences and appropriate theoretical backgrounds were a well-rounded offer. We all met each other openly in the seminar and according to the motto "everything can, nothing must" each person could decide if and how much they want to share with the others. It was an intense week, however we had enough free time for ourselves and the schedule was adjusted so that we could do everything in peace. Special highlights of the place and accommodation were the excellent cuisine with regional ingredients, as well as the beautiful landscape of the Kleinwalsertal. In addition, I would like to emphasize that the communication of Thomas Schneider and his team is excellent - to the detailed information materials I received at any time fast and friendly feedback for my individual concerns. And also during the course Thomas Schneider was responsive to our personal shared experiences. For the time after the course, we received seminar materials as well as audio files to accompany us on our path of mindfulness in everyday life. Thus, it is an all-around successful offer and I would definitely recommend the course.
Everything was perfect! Thomas as a course leader and the entire organization, a great and colorful group, a nice hotel with great cuisine, impressive nature. Many, many inputs taken away, but also the realization that you have to work on it yourself every day :-)
I participated in the Bergstille Auszeit, a perfect mix of meditation, talks and hiking. And the seminar room and mountain inn are surrounded by the beautiful Allgäu mountains, nature with cows and delicious fresh food, which makes the experience simply unforgettable!!!! I loved the hut and the food is absolutely delicious.
Florian, who led the seminar, was truly exceptional. He cared for each of us with genuine attention and deep listening, making me feel understood and healed from personal burdens.
And finally, our group was amazing!!! We had a great time and are grateful for her sympathy and sharing of all her wisdom. I look forward to my next visit, possibly next winter or spring! ❤️😊👍
I attended the MRS retreat of Yin and Yang in St.-Peter-Ording. The course was very intensive and my meditation practice was expanded by many new and profound experiences. I liked the exchange in the group very much. Thomas guided and accompanied the course very well. I felt very comfortable all around. I have taken many positive impulses with me.
It was now my third trip with "Ways to Be" and it was, as on the first two trips, a completely wonderful experience! Thomas leads his courses with much empathy, consideration and at no time tries to make the course participants insights or experiences "palatable" but gives everyone the freedom to go at their own pace. Nevertheless, one feels seen at all times.... A great week that has simply done my soul good!
Whether in presence, or also online... the seminars are always an enrichment for the soul. Anja led the course alone and indeed - hats off - she is just wonderful. Always finds the right words, has a gift to catch people. Best regards and see you next time, Regina
