Schweibenalp – Center of Unity
Schweibenalp is situated in the middle of the Bernese Oberland Alps on a plateau 1100 m above sea level. From the border of the Giessbach Gorge one has a stunning view towards the Rothorn mountain chain, Axalphorn and Brienz Lake. Amidst waterfalls, alpine meadows, forests and mountains Schweibenalp is an invitation to deepen our relationship with nature, to enjoy the silence and allow oneself to open to the Mystery.The history of Schweibenalp as a sacred place goes back to the time of the Celts when Druids lived and held rituals and celebrations up here. Around 500 A.D. the Christian religion reached the Bernese Oberland and Schweibenalp became the property of the monastery of St. Gallen. So it comes that one of the pilgrimage paths to Santiago de Compostela (Road to Santiago) goes through Schweibenalp.
The kitchen at Schweibenalp cooks vegetarian meals with a lot of heart. The ingredients are partly organic, and when in season they use vegetables, fruits and herbs from their own permaculture garden. The three meals are served as a diverse buffet with an intention to be creative both in content and presentation.TravelUse the Webpage of Schweibenalp to find google maps and travel discription.

Participants commit to attending all nine ceremonies and to integrate 40 specific tools and practices into their daily life. To deepen the learning from each ceremony, the participants work on assignments in between ceremonies and report back on their learnings and questions. Members of the training circle support each other for their growth and learning.
The commitment during the 3 months in between ceremonies includes a daily practice and self-reporting (about one hour a day), and a learning report every 2 weeks as well as regular communication within the learning teams.
Participants are required to have email and web access. We use a password protected website as the virtual space to receive assignments, post reports, share learnings and to stay connected between our face-to-face ceremony times.
