IN BRIENZ SWITZERLAND
with Jodi Boone
July 16-23, 2023
This will be my 7th summer returning to Schweibenalp, in the Swiss Alps. Schweibenalp holds a very special place in my heart. It used to be a monastery, and is now an intentionall spiritual community and retreat center.
Set high in the alps above Lake Brienz, Schweibenalp is a peaceful sanctuary. The accommodations are rustic and cozy. Schweibenalp is also a permaculture center, and people from all over the world come to study permaculture there. You have never seen such an expansive permaculture garden.
The retreat begins at 6 pm on Saturday, July 11 with dinner, and ends at 10:30 am on Friday, July 17, just after breakfast.
Then you add to the cost of the retreat to your preferred accommodation:
Double shared room is 850 GBP per person
Private room is 995 GBP per person
To register, visit the Yoga on a Shoestring website. This is a company I have been working with since 2006.
- Morning yoga and meditation sessions
- Afternoon restorative yoga sessions
- Three beautiful vegetarian meals per day
- After dinner, you can join for yoga nidra, a film or meditation and chanting in the temple

THINGS TO DO
Schweibehalp is truly a spiritual and healing place. It is peaceful, it is high up in the mountains, immersed in nature. Our great pleasures on retreat are walking, hiking, napping, practicing yoga, eating, reading, communing with each other and attending the yoga and meditation sessions (three sessions per day – morning, afternoon and evening).
