Description

Go for 5-days trekking crossing in the Tunisian desert!

Between the unforgettable sunrises and sunsets, the pace of the caravan remains the same: fresh bread, prepared for each meal by your cook, your camel team that loads your luggage on the dromedaries and you go in this ocean of golden dunes following your guide, to the west, with the rhythm of the conscious walk and the Afghan walk, listening to the song of inner silence. In the middle of the erg is an important wildlife and you may be lucky to see gazelles ...

And if instead of an "as usual" eve, you woke up in the desert, moment by moment, during those few days out of time? This in order to live fully the two dimensions of our Being: the Existential and the Essential.

On the horizontal plane of existence, you can live a passage to a new year leaving the old to open you to new, reducing unnecessary baggage: what do you want to lighten, what are the blockages that hinder your aspirations and that you will let go?

Helped by the journey lived in Full Consciousness and the song of silence, it is natural that this transition to new horizons of the new year will be in lightness. In terms of essentials, it will also be possible to contact and let emerge this part of yourself which is out of time and who has nothing to do with these stories of your wishes for the new year because it is already perfect: our Essential Being!

The dimension of our soul is revealed spontaneously if you give him the opportunity to do so. To let this emerge, access to moments without thoughts is the key to approach this eternal part of ourselves. Apart from the conscious march and the Afghan march, the vigils with our camel friends will accompany our intentions for the new year. The inner silence to which the desert invites us will also be our anchor to be there, fully awake in the present moment.
