Breathe In, Ski Out

A ski, meditation & hike retreat to Cervinia in the Italian Alps

April 7-13, 2019


For the second time we are going for a ski and meditation retreat in Valtournenche in the Italian Alps.


In short - this is a retreat where we will ski in the Alps and train our mind to be more present through meditation. And we haven't even mentioned the Italian food. Can it be any better?

Meditation - During the week, we will teach ourselves to be more present, but most importantly we will practice this through meditation. Josefin Dahlberg and Axel Wennhall will be your guides for the week and will be available for participants who have not tried meditation before. You will get to test a veritable smorgasbord of meditation, for example, mindfulness, walking, shaking and mantra. In short - you will experience a lot of wonderful meditations, that will help you to be your true self and stay more present both during the retreat and when you return home.

Nature - The village of Valtournenche lies in the Italian Aosta Valley. The piste includes the mountain Matterhorn, stretches all the way into Switzerland and takes you 3883 meters above sea-level. Here you will be surrounded by some of Europe's highest and most beautiful mountain peaks.

Adventure - This is one of Europe’s highest pistes and therefore offers excellent skiing conditions in April. There will be the opportunity, if you are especially adventurous, to ski both in a group or off-piste with a guide from Hotel Millefiori. Aside from skiing, you will also have the opportunity to hike with Gustav Nord, both on a glacier or up the mountain.
