“The week’s retreat Forest Bathing in Italy…

was a unique and a memorable experience, one not to be missed.
The programme was very well thought out with a variety of forests bathing trips to different forests, visits to local places of interest and mindfulness meditation. I feel refreshed, renewed, relaxed and empowered to return to life after only one week away! I wish you the best for the future and many more successful retreats”

The most amazing experience of my entire trip.

I cannot recommend Carlos and Emma’s experience enough. I was by myself and immediately felt so safe and comfortable – the lunch was delicious, the walk was incredible, and the experience and feeling was unforgettable. Every person in the world should experience this! I will definitely be back 🙂
Private FeedbackThank you so, so much for such an incredible time. I don’t have words for my gratitude and the feeling I am left with. I will never forget this and am humbled by the experience!

We truly enjoyed this experience with Carlos.

The lunch and tea at his home in the country were delicious and enjoyable with great conversation. The experience walking through the forest was so peaceful and heart-filling. We will definitely continue the practices we learned here when at home, and we were grateful to have Carlos as our guide. He is communicative and kind and it is evident that he truly loves what he does and wants to share it as much as possible.
Private Feedback: Thank you so much for taking us on this experience and allowing us to get to know you and your practice. We greatly enjoyed each and every station in the forest. We have always felt great peace in our hikes through the forest, but you taught us many strategies for slowing down and truly appreciating the sights, sounds, and smells of the forest and everything in it. Thank you again for the wonderful experience.

This is truly one of the most unique experiences!…

Excellent experience! 5 STARS, Would give more stars if possible….

I tend to be over-active and unfocused when I do outdoor activities even though I love the outdoors, so this experience was an amazing way to slow down and really take it all in slowly. We had three Americans and several Germans in our group, so it was fun interacting with everyone. The countryside and forest were beautiful and the bathing experience was exactly what I needed at that point in my travels. Everything was very clear, calm and well organized. The local beer garden was great, too. Carlos picking us up from a central location was extremely helpful. Very highly recommended!

It would be hard to overstate how much we enjoyed our time…

…with Carlos. We spent the day eating great food, sharing about our lives, and experiencing the beautiful Bavarian countryside and forest. Carlos is a gentleman and clearly cares a lot about offering a high-quality experience. The Forest-Bathing activity was restorative and insightful, and Carlos led it with a casual professionalism that felt like a friend. Our time in Munich was short, but Carlos generously accommodated our schedule and even dropped us off at the airport so that we could still drive through the countryside and go to the monastery after the forest for beers and a traditional Bavarian meal. It was apparent that Carlos and Emma are passionate about what they do and are in it to make a long lasting impact on their guests. We look forward to visiting Munich again but next time at Carlos and Emma’s place!

This is truly one of the most unique experiences!…

We were well cared for from start to finish. Transportation from Munich’s Central Station is personally provided by Carlos. Once in Weyarn, a lovely lunch was prepared by Carlos’ wife, Emma who is one of the kindest persons you could ever meet. Weyarn offers beautiful pastoral scenery flanked by mountains. Just the respit form the city that was needed. Then there is the descent into the forest just a stone’s throw away. Carlos in this regard is the consummate guide and facilitator for the forest bathing experience. He carries in-depth knowledge and expertise around the research basis supporting the benefits of forest bathing for those eager to gain more information. But it is the sensory insights that the experience itself affords that was so valuable. Our day was rounded off by a stop to a beer garden nestled in a monastery with to die for views with Carlos and his family as the best company. –Rejuvenating, Refreshing. . . would regard it as bucket list activity for sure. HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! a MUST DO if you happen to find yourself in the Munich/Bavaria vicinity

“This Forest day was a gift in all aspects…

…The weather, the route you’ve planned, your guidance and preparation, and also for giving all of us the space to get into a dialog with the forest and nature around us, and also with our inner self and the group. I will definitely do this again! Thank you from my heart.

“I am very grateful…

…for the MBSR and MSC courses; I especially enjoyed the cozy, quiet atmosphere in the country house for mindful living in Weyarn. In the midst of the wonderful nature I could completely switch off and concentrate entirely on the courses. And the special highlight was always the incomparably delicious food prepared by Carlos! The Sunday day sessions were very valuable to me; I can only recommend the courses-especially in Weyarn! ”

“Carlos, you make our day very special…

…thank you with your amazing food and they way you cook.”

“Every retreat day I left happier than when I came in!

Besides the professionally competent guided mediations by Emma, the friendly, welcoming atmosphere in the country house in Weyarn and the good food made by husband Carlos contributed to the well-being.

Thank you Emma for taking me to see positive and self tolerant aspects! ”
