Welcome to Autumn nature immersion
back to harmony!
October 13-16th, 2022 Loetschental Valley, switzerland
Fall, Leaves, Fall
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go & harvest what you need to.
This nature retreat has been designed having in mind of what the modern human being is in need.
Awe, presence, self-care, connection to nature and thyself.
Autumn. Nature. Swiss Alps. 🍁🍂🌲
Would you like to be a part of this immersion and experience nature in a 'Natural open air painting gallery' where alive paintings are blowing your mind away?
Designed for a small group of individuals to keep intimacy, authenticity and calm.
Wake up in the authentic Swiss cabin in the middle of the forest, next to a wild mountain river.
There Awe reaches your soul for good.
This time of the year is known as one of the most beautiful one in the Alps when nature becomes truly an artist.

Retreat Facilitators - Soulful Creators
Ruta, mountain leader, nature therapy guide & coach
Ruta has done her first hike back in 2013- she then realized that the real life is not happening in the indoor- office environment but rather outside.
This made her realize that she was missing something important in her life- connection with Nature. Since then, most of her time she spends outside- climbing, hiking, wild camping, walking in the forests, parks and other natural places. She has become hiking ‚guru‘ and is now passionate to share the most beautiful places in the Swiss Alps with the others.
Retreat participants often say that Ruta's passion for Nature is contagious.
Ruta is a professional mountain leader ( Association of Mountain Guides in Switzerland), neuro-coach (Neuroleadership Institute, London), and forest therapy guide (Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, USA).
By creating Be Outside Coaching movement, she has connected her 2 major passions: activities outside and human development. Be Outside Coaching delivers immersive and holistic Nature experiences in the different corners of pristine the Swiss Alps.
Be Outside. Be Authentic. Be You
Sahara, yoga & meditation teacher
Sahara is a 500h+ Yoga trained teacher.
She did her first 200h training in Norway, before she decided to go travel the world. She taught yoga wherever she could before landing in Costa Rica to do her 300h Hatha Vinyasa training.
Apart from Hatha and Vinyasa, Sahara also teaches Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Yogastrology. Her love for yoga came from her background in Dance. While in school she felt like she needed a practice to balance out her training and yoga became her best friend. Over the years Yoga has taught her so much more than just the physical benefits of the practice. It’s showed her how to bring balance back into her life and live from a place of Peace. It has taught her how to reconnect to Nature and appreciate the ebb and flow of the seasons around her.
It showed her the power of unifying her love with the patience of the Earth. Now Sahara teaches Yoga and Meditation in Private settings, allowing each student to get the most out of the practice that are tailored to them. All she wants is to share with the world the Magic Yoga has taught her, hoping that her teaching will inspires someone like it has inspired her.
Testimonial From Last Retreats
Alena, mother of 2 and business owner from Switzerland
'This year has been so hard and I have felt a terrible urge to escape my daily life, the uncertainty and the heavy routine. Joining Ruta's Autumn retreat was one of the best things that happened to me in 2020.
Ruta's carefully chosen location for the retreat was beyond what I could have imagined.. She is madly passionate about nature and outdoor living and she transmits this passion and to everyone around. I have discovered forest bathing, mindful hiking, participated in many activities I've never heard of before, I have let myself follow the rhythm and it was incredibly calming, nurturing and emotional experience.
I'm impressed with Ruta's facilitation skills too.
We were a group of 12 women with 12 different nationalities, cultures, backgrounds, personalities and expectations sharing this 3-day experience. Ruta managed all that diversity and strong emotions coming out with ease. She created an inclusive and safe environment for all of us to feel comfortable, heard and supported. Through many different activities, each of us could find a way to share (or not) that one was comfortable with. She managed to keep us motivated and outdoors even when the weather was difficult, during those 3 days we had sun, rain and even snow!!
The retreat was well planned, the sessions were well prepared with little surprises that went straight to the heart of each participant (I can't name as it would be a spoiler for next participants!)
I loved the place so much that I have prolonged my stay by an additional day and I'm already looking forward to next year!!'
