"We should not flee from the Vita activa to the Vita contemplativa, nor otherwise, but to be moving between both, being home in both, taking in part in both." Hermann Hesse
We are a specialist travel tour operator for monastic vacations and spiritual retreats worldwide. With our spiritual journeys we want to adress these people who are looking for peace, meaning and spirituality during their holiday. Monasteries as places of spirituality and stability offer since time immemorial the ideal frame for escaping the hectic of the everyday, for slowing down and to refuel new energy. The cultural specialties of the host country, the beauty of nature and the friendliness of the people complete this special travel experience. Truly a vacation for body, mind and soul!
- spiritual Retreat days in Christian and Buddhist monasteries with active monastic life for individual travelers
- Overnight stays in monastic hotel (Many orders have offspring problems and unfortunately not all monasteries are inhabited anymore. But the venerable walls live on in a new form - as a monastic hotel!)
- Special group travels (e.g. Meditation course, desert retreat, Christmas monastery journey)
- Organization of seminars for seminar providers in the appropriate monasteries
With our selected monasteries and reliable partners on site, we plan and organize the complete travel process of the monastic stay. Flexibly to your requested date we arrange the monastic journey. Appropriate to the character of the monastic journey the journey are only organized for one participant! We and also our partners on site really emphasize a personal and individual service.
Being a guest in the monastery
"As who you arrive, is important." Seneca
A monastic stay is a wonderful experience and quickens mind and soul. First it is rather a big change. To get into the slowed down tempo of a monastery takes a bit of time and patience. The guest should be stable within him or herself and to be able to cope with "silence" and "solitude".
If you travel as an interested, perceptive, respectful, independent, self-dependent, tolerant person, than we are happy to invite you to explore with you the variety of the cultures and the spirituality of this world!
