Each group develops its own cleansing ritual: deep conversation, stories, prayers, quiet, the playing of a shaman’s drum, or the sounds of other instruments.

Hiking guide and herbal expert Christiane Gruber will lead us on the trail to Spelonca/Spiluck, and teach us about the benefits of the various herbs which are often passed unnoticed along the way. We’ll learn which plants can be used for beauty care, which boost the body’s vitality, how they can be effectively integrated into our daily nutrition, and how they can help in different stages of life. Local “superfood” plants for physical activity will be highlighted. Natural substances in these plants promote healthy skin, gently stimulate cell regeneration and promote healing, provide satisfying nourishment, and give us energy for physical activity. After gathering herbs, we’ll conjure a healthy lunch and enjoy a “Kneipp coffee” along the Schalderer Bach stream. Before a crackling fire under the open skies, we’ll make a flower salve, regenerating bath salts, a lemon deodorant, and a calming after-sun spray. These products can be easily reproduced at home with the help of our recipes.
