3 Days Harvest: Art and Meditation Retreat in Sopron, Hungary

Sopron Monastery Hotel, Kolostorhegy utca 1, 9400 Sopron, Hungary

Hungary Meditation Retreat

Autumn is the time of harvest, when the process of growth reaches its fruition; when one cycle of the seasons nears its completion. Tuning into this cycle of seasons in the natural world around you and within yourself, you can begin to let go and appreciate the richness and wisdom inherent in the constant process of growth and change that flows through your life. With each turning around the seasons, you have the opportunity to come to a deeper understanding of the unfolding patterns in your life.

Food

Enjoying the chef’s sophisticated, healthy, and tasty international creations under the newly restored frescoes of the refectory is an unforgettable experience, in no small part due also to the remarkably attentive service to match the culinary delights.

Guests arrive at the Monastery with the intent to rest and rejuvenate themselves in body and spirit. The gastronomy on offer in the restaurant is based on the Latin proverb, "Mens sana in corpore sano," or, "A sound mind in a sound body." This concept supports the rejuvenation process, as the menus are assembled to facilitate relaxation and focus on retreat.

A full buffet breakfast is served on Saturday and Sunday. Lunches and dinners feature a range of dishes composed of healthy and delicious local ingredients and recipes of the season. Accommodations can be made for special dietary needs, including vegetarian and gluten-free options.
