When busy, tired, burnout start settling into our everyday vocabulary and become too intimate friends, it may prove useful to take some time and space to breathe and observe just where you are amidst your narrative. The need to connect deeply to life is hardwired into each person, yet many of us still struggle to do so in the context of contemporary life. But what if there are different ways to allow the aliveness around life to feed our energy every day? How can we stay open to life as it wants to emerge within us? Could there be a way to break out of the patterns? Join a like-minded collective that engages in the process of exploring the possibilities of imprinting self-care in our lives and increasing the well-being of our communities.

WHERE WILL IT BE
We will be staying in MAKAK Bed and Breakfast. The two MAKAK hosts, Rossi and Petar, are an English language teacher and a graphic designer. They have been together for 20 years now and 10 of them they have dedicated to building their house MAKAK in the picturesque village of Ledenik, right in the center of Bulgaria and just 4 km outside of romantic Veliko Tarnovo. At the beginning, the house was a way to channel their creative energies, an escape from the city and a place to meet family and friends in a beautiful environment. In the summer of 2006 they began hosting guests from all over the world, too. Small touches and beautiful gestures are really important to them, and their guests can feel them in both the artistic interior of the house, and the way they host each guest as a special person. The magic of MAKAK Bed and Breakfast, born out of the love between a poet and an artist, Rossi and Petar love to share with their guests.
