Mindful Journey

Have you ever feel like you dont understand how you feel? There are moments in life where we face cross roads, that we are low in energy and we feel down, sometimes all we need is just a person who understands and be able to put things into perspective objectively. About 1.5 years ago I met Sinéad, an intuitive specialist who has just won the best women’s mentor of the year 2016. Now if you havent any idea what is an intuitive specialist, you can read about my experience with her here. Fastforward 1.5 year, when we met again earlier at 4 Wellness , as usual, Sinead will read your energy without asking any questions and tell you...

My Life-Changing 3-days Italian Retreat at Eremito, Italy

How should I begin…It took me a few days to figure out what to write and how to write about my experience, because this retreat gave me a very emotional and powerful experience.

Perhaps due to its geographical location, Switzerland is blessed with one of the most beautiful natural scenery in Europe. It is my kind of winter wonderland, my par...

Travelogue- Zurich (part 1)- Peaceful Retreat

Zurich during late Autumn is beautiful. Being in Zurich calms me down. There is something about Switzerland that makes people feel so peaceful. In such a clean and peaceful city, everyone is decent, polite and friendly, I could completely let my guard down and again aimlessly wander around the city. Zurich isnt a big city, within a day you can probably have a good walk around areas that worth exploring. Since I was staying at Baur au Lac Hotel (which I had written about in an earlier post), it situates in front of the lake and the bridge that crosses over to the old town. So everyday I take a walk along the lake side, just taking...
