Explore a fantastic version of yourself in this summer camp. Discover your inner "Jedi" with a masterful program of mindfulness, physical challenges, meditation, and self-development. Bring back a new height of performance into your daily life. Join Life Atlas in Northern Italy and awaken your spirit of the hero!
You will have several options of accommodation during this training. You may bring your own tent, or you can also stay at Timber Hero (eco-village) or the Stone Hero (old stone house).
You can set up your own tent on one of the beautiful sites in the forest near the river. Outdoor toilets and washing facilities are provided. You will be in the middle of nature to enjoy the real adventure. The meals will be provided in the dining house with all the other participants, a walk through the woods away.
The eco-village consists of several wooden houses arranged into a beautiful little village. Your room will be in one of the cozy houses. Bathrooms and toilets are either in-house or in the neighboring bathroom house. There is also a sauna in the eco-village and the dining house belongs to it. The village is the central hub of Centro Anidra.
The old stone house was turned into a lodge with five beautiful rooms arranged after the five elements by a Feng Shui adviser. All rooms have a bath ensuite and in-floor heating. The old stone house is beneath the herbal gardens and right by the eco-village. Its cozy rooms offer a comfortable and elegant stay during the camp.
Life Atlas created this training process because they discovered for themselves how powerful it can be to combine body, mind, and emotions through conscious and aware training methods.
People found their own inner hero not on the outside but on the inside. Life Atlas believe that you do not need to rescue people from a fire, you need to use your full potential.
For Life Atlas, this hero power is gained through the combination of conscious bodywork, outdoor training and fitness, meditation, and self-development training.
In the Hero Camp a professional cross-train experience from Sascha's extensive training and research background in Asian monasteries, Dojos on Okinawa and tribal warrior arts all around the world is offered. You will experience elements of traditional Karate, Wudang Kungfu, combative Taji Quan, Self-Defence and weapons training. We have both experienced black belts and people with no experience at all.
Additionally we will practice animal movements, yin yoga, free dance, meditation and Qi Gong. It is a well balanced training of yin and yang elements for body and mind.
Go through this adventure as an elite athlete or total couch potato, totally stressed out or as a longtime meditator. If you want more, then this is your summer camp!
Find friendship and like-minded, kind-hearted people that help you accelerate your growth. Become part of Life Atlas hero tribe network and meet friends you cannot wait to hear from once you are back home and who help you stay courageous.
The spirit of the hero camp summons an international crowd of people who are just like you. Looking for more, eager to learn and willing to share their path with others.
The camp is for you, if you are a seeker! If you know that there is more to your life than working and spending time in front of your devices, this is it. That is enough to join.
But besides that, the spirit of the hero is for people who are into movement, into holistic living, and nature. It is for everyone who is stressed, overworked, and just needs a big time out. For martial artists, yogis, and sportsmen who want to understand themselves on a deeper level. In short, for all the heroes out there.
People who are not open to different modalities, traditions, and new approaches. And it is not for people who only want either a meditation or a physical bootcamp. Life Atlas believe that the human being needs both aspects and that you have to bring them in harmony and train them together to develop your potential. Do not avoid your inner side.
It is very important to Life Atlas that everyone can join the camp. They have a wide mix of participants at all imaginable fitness and experience levels. If you are a couch potato or a professional athlete, you will find your challenge and your individual path of growth at the camp.
The camps training process will include parts or a blend of many different modalities. Among them is meditation, Qi Gong, yoga, animal styles movement, martial arts, Tai Chi, shamanic journeying, five elements analysis, traditional archery, Mori Gari (forest fighting challenge), self-reflection training, nutrition workshops, and many more.
The training will be given in English. But Life Atlas will also be able to translate to German and in a limited extent to Italian and French. Do not worry if your English is only basic, communication is not an issue once you are there and experience the group.
A hero needs knowledge and a hero needs to be challenged. And for Life Atlas, experience is the foundation of the camp. That is why you will dive into the 'Mori Gari' forest challenge, shamanic journeying, nutritional workshops, intuitive archery, and much more. Growth is what Life Atlas want to create and growth needs challenge, knowledge, and new experiences.
