Meditative Hiking: Daily 90 minute meditative walk in nature, opening the senses and developing mindfulness.

One or twice a week will be entirely dedicated to meditative trekking, starting just after breakfast and coming back for dinner. It is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the the Ordesa National Park or surrounding areas. Swim in the river, meditate or relax in nature. Those days, because of the excursion there will be a restorative yoga class in the afternoon. *One of the two excursions will be with snowshoes.

Meditation: there will be one workshop on meditation for those who are interested in starting a meditation practice of for those who wants to refresh their practice. There will be also time for one to one sessions in case of doubts about the own practice.

Karma Yoga: skillfulness in action. Let yoga support us in all we do. Meditative work. At Casa Cuadrau, we invite you to practice karma yoga by helping in simple tasks in the house like helping in the kitchen chopping vegetables, drying dishes, cleaning, sweeping, or helping in the garden for 45 min./day in a mindful, bodiful, senseful integrated way.

Satsang is a gathering time. It starts with a time for discussion and inquiry, questions and answers based on the direct experience of all participants, followed by meditative singing to give some rest to the mind. It finishes with a silent meditation.

All activities are optional and can be modified to suit the group. To get the most of your stay, we recommend that you participate in all scheduled activities.

Joyful Silence

Every day from the end of the evening Satsang up until after lunch the following morning, you will cultivate joyful silence in the house. This deep silence is very healing for calming the mind and being in peace with yourself, allowing you to deeply listen to yourself. You will have a restful sleep and the next day you will enjoy the silence with mental clarity during your asana practice, meditation and other activities. Meals will be taken mindfully and in silence. By participating in this period of joyful silence you will be supporting each other in our practice. After lunch and throughout the afternoon you will enjoy conscious speaking and deep listening, which will allow you to get to know each other in a more authentic way.

Included excursions

Immerse yourself into the wonders of a long journey through a magical cave and descending the majestic waterfalls of Aso River. We will put you in contact with a specialist company which organize the excursion with a professional guide, rental of equipment, etc.
