What did we do on our 2-day Retreat?

The Location:

On an altitude of 1530m and 38km away from Beirut, we grouped together once again in a Re(Treat) like no other in Falougha’s most incredible resort: Soha Village Resort!

Falougha, being a well-known summer resort, is ideal for anyone seeking a quiet stay away from the busyness of city life. And Soha Village Resort is one of the most captivating resorts in the Maten area. Just imagine yourself surrounded by fresh water springs, green hillsides, and a variety of trees over 2 days.

WHEN? Saturday & Sunday JUNE 13 & 14 while staying in the most beautiful eco-lodges in the splendid mountains of Falougha, Mont-Lebanon!

WHERE? Soha Village Resort, Falougha – Lebanon
WHAT’s more? And how is this different from the other events?
Throughout the activities, we sought to explore and cultivate living the creative life in the midst of nature beyond the sun, wind, moon, and trees.

Sessions were grounded in nurturing our creative whole selves to include Hiking, Sunset Photography for Smartphones, Shared Painting, Creative Writing, & Yoga!
