Foggy morning walks around the villa
There's always time to pause.
Guests reflecting on a silent hike in the mountains next to our villa.
A hour silent early morning hike way above the riviera, a long practice and some deep internal work that I won't ruin by describing it here, capped off with nourishment of the more traditional variety. A little birdie snuck this photo. It's just really cool to be around people who make you feel like you're doing something worth doing. Find those people, the ones who help you dream. Words - Benjamin Sears.
"Give me solitude - give me Nature - give me again, O Nature, your primal sanities" —Walt Whitman.
Take a hike, look at a beautiful view, feel more calm. Works every time. Whitman helps also. There's an expression in French (everything sounds better in French) "aérer ma tête" which is equivalent to the English "clear my head," but more literally means "air my head." As we yogis all know, you don't empty the mind, you concentrate upon something that brings peace and quiet and so the idea of bringing some fresh air into one's brain is not only cute but more congruent with actual brain function and the best mind-softener of all: time spent in nature. This is up top of one of the peaks around the luxvilla at the door to the alps. You literally pass through 3 climates on the way up. - founder, Benjamin Sears.
Hikes at golden hour.
