Ground & Elevate

A transformative Weekend Retreat

Meditation | Yoga | Sound Healing | Breathwork 

23. - 25. September 2022

Fully Booked | Waiting List Open


We invite you to join this transformative weekend in Badenweiler, a power place in the Southern Black Forest.

This extended weekend retreat is for everyone willing to take a journey  deep within. In these four days we strive to reconnect with our true Self; through Transpersonal Cacao & Sound Journeys, Breathwork Ceremonies, Shadow and Inner Child Work as well as Morning Yoga and Meditation Practice we will activate our self-healing powers and cultivate the here and now. 

We, Marc and Valérie, accompany you during these three days and give you the space for your individual process, while also celebrating the collective energy of the group in the ceremonial setting. Carried by the premises of the Balance Revital Hotel amidst the idyllic and picturesque landscape of the Southern Black Forest, a transforming weekend awaits you, and will take you to the healing silence that is within yourself. ​

Marc Grüninger Valérie Grüninger Sacred Ways



The idyllic spa town of Badenweiler lies at the foot of the Southern Black Forest. A mere hour and a half drive away from Zürich, one can enjoy an impressive natural landscape with a mild climate.


Badenweiler, with its Spa Park and Cassiopeia Therme, invites you to sit back and rejuvenate. ​On the foundation of the Roman baths (75 years AD) the first public bath was built in 1875; balneological therapies soon followed. Doctors at home and abroad were enthusiastic about the beneficial effects of a cure in Badenweiler, sent their patients here to recover and thus Badenweiler's rise to one of the most well known spa towns in Germany took its course.


Today, Badenweiler no longer only welcomes spa guests from all over the world but has meanwhile become a popular vacation spot for active and wellness vacationers, nature and culture lovers.


Balance Revital Hotel

The Balance Revital Hotel, which is located next to the spa park, has established itself as a health house in Badenweiler over the years. The hotel was awarded the environmental seal of responsibility towards nature and the environment; a technology against electro-smog helps people to get a good night's sleep.


The Hotel is a place to just be and may temporarily completely forget everyday life. We are invited to spend a well-deserved break in this lovely environment, surrounded by an idyllic natural landscape. The hotel places great importance on a well-balanced vitality breakfast buffet, which inspires us with creative variety. The evening cuisine is mainly vegetarian; with a rich selection of herbs and spices, the dishes are light and wholesome.​
