Join our Life School
Are you going through a difficult phase in your life, in your marriage, at work? Do you want to experience a true stress relieve as well as a complete digital detox?
Are you looking for your true self? Do you want to find your own way in life and understand yourself more? Are you feeling lonely?
Following our vision of "being together instead of staying alone", we invite you to join our Life School!
What is Life School about?
The Life School is about taking a break from your daily life. Its content is created upon the combination of physical, mental and spiritual work; the Life School is not a rehabilitation or hospital facility that cares for you. We help you by giving you the tools to improve yourself.
How does it work?
Our philosophy is based upon an intention to live a simple life in connection with the nature. We cook for ourselves, we use fruits and vegetables that grow locally and seasonally in our region, we take care of the castle and grounds. We learn from and about the nature as well as ourselves. Every day we start with yoga, meditation or a meditative walk. Each day in the castle is a bit different, but the principles we follow are still the same.
Whom is the Life School designed for?
Anyone from the age of 18. We invite applicants of all ages who are willing to experience and learn new things, who want to get rid of internal contradictions and who actively want to change detrimental behavioural patterns. We gladly accept applicants who want to be part of and nurture society and who are willing to bring in their ideas and experiences.
Whom is the Life School NOT designed for?
We cannot accept anyone who is currently suffering from a disease requiring medical treatment (psychiatric or physical). Our place is neither a psychiatric clinic nor a place treating addictions (e.g. drug or alcohol addiction).
We do NOT accept anyone who are dependent on any kind of medicine / drug.
A health certificate is required if you have any medical or dietary requirements that will affect your participation in the life school.
What are the goals of the Life School?
At the Life School you will learn how to take the responsibility for yourself and your happiness.
The goals of the Life School are following
What is my personal goal?
This is the question you need to ask yourself first and later to discuss with the therapist.
How long should I stay? When can I come?
Our castle and the Life School are open from the beginning of April till the end of October. We recommend that you stay with us for at least 3 months.
How much is the Life School?
Price: 600 to 1200 EUR per month (based on our agreement and your financial situation). The fee is non-refundable if you choose to leave or are asked to leave early for not following our philosophy and rules. We are strict on this policy because we want you to commit to improving yourself.
