“Whether we want to create more free time, build our dreams, create a change in the world, our level of effectiveness is what defines our ability to make things happen.”

“A keystone to happiness is progress. Progress comes from effectiveness. And effectiveness is a trainable set of skills. Therefore so is happiness.”

In this retreat we’ll learn and practice the secret of high-effectiveness:

Flow, our optimal state of happiness & productivity. Flow is an enhanced state of consciousness in which we feel at our best and become 2 to 5 times (McKinsey report) more creative & producti​​​​ve than ordinarily. Getting into Flow is not magic, but a matter of training the mind.

On this retreat you will get a chance to slow down and rise above the incessant distractions and demands from the external world, in order to focus on what is most meaningful to you.  Give us 4 days of your attention and we will show you how to stay focused and highly effective for life.

“The best productivity event I've attended. I accomplished several day's worth of work in one day, and I felt relaxed and in a state of complete flow the entire time..... also met some great people!”

Alexandra V.


& Business designer


“Thank you for helping me reconnect with my flow. I had some major emotional challenges this year together with a more complex working schedule and this kinda left me drained. Your seminar helped me re-focus, re-vision, re-align with my goal-setting and actually feel the flow. I am very grateful and think it can be an added value for anyone, since the principles can be used on very different contexts and goals, not only professional.”

Vishal T.

IT consultant


“I probably saved about 5hrs of work time today. At my rate this is several hundreds of euros.”

We are lucky to be hosted at the beautiful Karunahaus.

An environment prime for getting new ideas and clearing the mind - Karunahaus is situated in Toggenburg surrounded by nature at the foot of the Säntis (1068 m) with a view on the Churfirsten. 

An inspiring space which is disconnected from the myriad of daily distractions, and offers many possibilities for outdoor activities. A place to connect with people, animals, nature and most importantly with yourself. 

Getting there: 90min from Zurich by car - or 2hrs by transport (we will pick you up at the bus station).
