New TOPIC and new PLACE!!!
Deep nature connection and mentoring practices to discover and strengthen your personal gift and leadership and to find vision and purpose in life
Thursday, 12. February, 6 pm till Sunday, 15. February 2015, 2 pm
In native cultures around the earth people know that each child is born with a special and unique gift – a good medicine that it is bringing for the family and the community.
This gift often remains hidden from ourselves. Connected with it is our very personal leadership, that we need in our later life in order to become a fully mature adult, and to find and fulfill our purpose and vision in life.
In this workshop you will learn how to connect with nature to find your gift and purpose. You will bring home understanding and methods to heal the wounds of your childhood and to solve and overcome the blocks that might have their origin in these old wounds.
Jon Young will share stories and teachings from the native cultures that he has worked with about what leadership truly means in their understanding, and how you can access it for yourself as well as support others in finding and strengthening it.
You will learn to understand what vision is. And receive insights into how to find it, or find it again, and how to empower others to open the doors of their perception for it.
When you complete ceremony, you align your world with the Universe. It is much more than it sounds because you find all life resides in you. All life is alive in us to the smallest of our cells.

Part of the workshop will be a Renewal Process for the winter time, that can help you with specific questions, tools and ceremonies to find your own nature-connected path into the new year and beyond.
Together with us you will be able to spend time outside in the beautiful landscape around the “Höchsten”, with winterly forest, meadows and enchanted mountain creeks.
You have the chance to bring back home tools and practices of native people to refresh your senses, strengthen the power of your awareness and let your intuition thrive, to learn to listen to the natural beings around you and to your own inner voice.
In this kind of deep and sensory-aware connection to nature a feeling of awe can come alive in us, that changes our concsciousness for ourselves and the world as a whole. This kind of awe has been researched recently, e.g. by UC Berkeley. It can help us to understand our place within our community and within all of creation. With each moment of awe, we become measurably happier, healthier, more modest and kind towards others, an effect that persists even for a few weeks.
In this workshop we will embark on a journey towards awe, towards the moments in your life where you can receive “good medicine” and where small windows to your innermost essence open up for a short time, where all knowing is already waiting for you.
The Quality of the Season
In February Nature seems to be sleeping still on the outside, hardly any flower becomes visible, the decideous tres and shrubs are still without leaves and the landscape is laying before us translucently, allowing us an outlook far into the distance. Hardly any bird has migrated back yet and the cold of the winter still holds the land under cover.
But in the depth of the earth, many a germinated seed is already alive, and many animals already walk pregnant with their future offspring. Everything is getting ready for spring when the new life becomes visible.
As people we can use this time to look at what is still hidden but already awaiting us. It is the time of visions for the new year, that can come to us like dreams and that – just like dreams – want to be held tight and shared with others, before they would grow pale again in the light of spring’s busyness emerging soon.
The Landhäuser am Höchsten are nestled in between forest and meadows, at the Southern slope of the Höchsten, a roughly 830 m high mountain in the Northern backcountry of Lake Constance. Especially in the winter months it often gifts visitors with a far outlook onto the lake and the Swiss Alps in the far South.
