Stillness in Action Nature Holiday at Lauvitel Lodge What We Are Renowned For

To feel revitalized, there is nothing better or more natural than being in nature

Stillness in ActionOur Stillness in Action Holidays offer you a time and space to reconnect with your soul. 

For six days you will bask in the exceptionally beautiful surroundings of Lauvitel Lodge, in the heart of the Ecrins National Park.  You will be overthrown by the tranquillity, the fresh air, the pure waters, the silence with just the birds singing, the deep green forests, the gently running waters, the colourful flowers in the gardens and meadows…

Hosted and facilitated by Caroline Purkhardt (Ph.D.), owner of Lauvitel Lodge, your nature holiday experience will help you rediscover a new and profound relationship with the natural elements, and a greater awareness of your own inner wisdom.  You will uncover the rightness of your actions, trust your intuition, and establish a greater freedom of choice for yourself.

Caroline is a social psychologist, and author of the book Stillness in Action. She is deeply passionate about helping people connect to their innate power and wisdom, and learn how to access ease and flow on a daily basis so that they are able to bring more energy and aliveness into their life and work. Throughout your holiday she is there to listen , guide and share her love of nature and her wisdom in aligning body and spirit.

Stillness reveals our natural quality of conscious presence and helps us re-establish an inner peace. Through sitting meditation, mostly out in the open air, and gentle movement, with T’ai chi and Chi Kung, we reconnect with the natural elements. The exceptional surroundings to Lauvitel Lodge offer us an enchanting environment explore the 5 natural elements:  moving through rock strewn bolder fields, resting in the tranquillity of the mountain meadows, following mountain streams and bathing in rivers, walking in the ancient forests, awed by the majesty of mountain ridges and summits.
