connecting s p a c e s

Connecting spaces is dedicated to transformation, tracing out pathways for our human societies to move from dominance over nature, to a spirit of care grounded in respect and appreciation. On RE.CONNECT NATURE RETREATS and TRANSFORMATIONAL HIMALAYAN JOURNEYS, we bring you to pristine corners of mountain nature in Switzerland and Nepal, inviting you to reconnect to your inner essence and life purpose, by reconnecting more deeply with nature's elements. The aim is to regenerate, to reach inner states of calm and well-being, and thereby gain clarity on your next relevant steps on your life’s path.

Connecting spaces is dedicated to holistic, positive system change, tracing out pathways and solutions for our human societies to move from dominance and control over nature and landscape, to a spirit of stewardship grounded in respect and appreciation. We connect the individual, local and global scales - the east (Himalaya) and west (Switzerland) - always revolving around the question on how we as human beings can develop into more conscious, caring participants of ecosystem Earth

On RE.CONNECT Mountain NATURE RETREATS and TRANSFORMATIONAL HIMALAYAN JOURNEYS, we invite our guests to reconnect to their inner essence and life purpose, by reconnecting more deeply with nature. The aim is to regenerate, to reach inner states of calm and well-being, and thereby gain clarity on your next relevant steps on your life’s path. We bring you to pristine corners of regenerative mountain nature, on customised trekking tours in Switzerland and the Himalayas, in groups of 1 to 5 persons, as fixed departure tours, or curated to your individual wishes & needs.

Travelling consciously through pristine mountain spaces, you experience the beauty of nature, the energy of the elements, gradually letting go of your everyday concerns and whatever normally runs your mind. Enjoy a journey in nature, to reflect, feel and explore, to understand and remember, and to reconnect with your purpose of being. essentially to find the “home” within yourself.
