Check-out Time:

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.

Timber Hero (eco-village)

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.

Stone Hero (stone house)

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.


The hero training

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!

In the company of heroes

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.

Benefits of the camp

Mind / soul

  • Calmness and inner focus: you will fully reconnect with yourself through meditation, being in nature and the reflection exercises you do
  • Stress detox: 12 days of meditation, qi gong and refocusing on what is really important to you will drastically reduce the stress you accumulated
  • Healthy new routines: create a routine with ease. The Hero Wake Up training in the morning and the whole 12-day process will give you strong routines you can easily implement in your daily life after the camp.


  • Fantastic body feeling and health: the multi-leveled training approach, the food and mindfulness exercises will give you the best bodily feeling you had for years
  • Fitness: the camp will bring you to the next level of your fitness (wherever you are at the moment)


  • Awesome community: when you gather people in an environment where they can express themselves freely and grow together, an unbeatable community is created. Be part of the hero tribe far beyond the camp
  • Be a hero: for Life Atlas, being a hero means to pursue your wants and needs with great clarity, empower yourself, and learn about your inner nature. After each camp, you go home feeling more content and heroic and realize that you actually are on your hero's journey
  • Amazing energy: you will build up an amazing energy level and Life Atlas will show you how you keep up your momentum back home

For whom is it?

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.

For whom is it not?

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.

How fit do you need to be?

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.

Modalities, sports, and techniques

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 camps language

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.

In the mountains of Liguria, far away from the touristic centers where porcupines stroll through the forests, lies Centro Anidra. An eco-village, organic farm and retreat center located in the Sturla Valley - so vast it contains a waterfall, mountain forests, hidden glades and a hiking track that takes 45 minutes to walk. It's perfect for the Spirit of the Hero camp.

So imagine you wake up to the sounds of the birds in the mountains, start your day with a session of meditation overlooking the lush valley, already looking forward to the beautiful superfood breakfast.

Centro Anidra is located in the wonderful Northern Italian region of Liguria. There are plenty of things to do and to explore on the free day during the camp.

Starting directly from Centro Anidra there are wonderful hiking tracks. In the surrounding mountain region, you can visit old churches, manufactories, see wild horses, climb, bike, or kayak.

Following down the valley, you will soon reach the Mediterranean Sea where the world-famous villages Portofino and Cinque Terre are just a short drive away.
