A fascinating weekend programme to provide participants with innovative strategies for managing stress levels, for increasing well-being and mindfulness.
Nature shows us that Autumn is the best season for shedding old habits and all but the strictly necessary. It the best moment of the year to incorporate new routines to improve our general levels of health and well-being both physical and mental, the vitality to perform well at work and enjoy a full personal life throughout the winter.
Our hotel set in a peaceful hidden valley well away from the world, make it an ideal location to be in contact with nature, breathe the wonderful unpolluted air, walk through the centuries old olive groves which transmit tranquility, and eat delicious, healthy meals. The menus both days have been specially designed by Rubén Catalan, chef de La Torre del Visco, in collaboration with a qualified nutrionist. Most of the produce and olive oil comes from our own organic farm which surrounds the hotel. Zero food miles – authentic farm to fork.
We are fortunate to be able to offer you the top professional experts in the field, who have a sound foundation of knowledge of ancient cultures, such as the Japanese and Chinese, and from this basis , have continously innovated in the fields of emotional health and wellbeing.

Connecting with your Inner Being Through Your Voice. In the universe everything emits a vibration. Human beings, like all animals, have the ability to emit sounds naturally, in our case, this means song and singing though society and Western culture has largely lost that ability.
