Our Philosophy

The first and foremost aim Soma Home-Stay Retreat is to help people to find themselves again underneath the layers of stress that were created.

The energies on the Planet Earth are shifting now and a complete new area has begun. Every body can feel that something has changed and the old ways don't work anymore. It seems that every thing is falling apart around us and man people are lost.

Katharina is very aware of what is going on in the world and has created this retreat for people  who are ready to shift into a new consciousness, embrace their power and ability to create something new to prosper. 

In the serenity of nature, if we eat good food and have good sleep, we are more awake and can create from this place of balance a live in abundance to manifest dreams we might have forgotten.

I want to quote Oriah Mountain dreamer, she is perfectly mirroring our goal:

The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer 

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.  It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.


It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.


I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human. 


It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.


I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, 'Yes.' It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.


I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children. It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.


IIt doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

In addition I want to add something that many might not be aware of:

Do you know what happens to a line that you draw infinitely? 

Time line? Linear Time? Where does it go??  Where does it end??? 

A straight Line goes where?

Every line eventually turns into a circle, or better spiral! There is actually no straight line in the Universe. Every line we see, is just part of a big circle/spiral that it too big for our limited awareness to see completely.   

Imagine that you are in an air plane and the air plane is making an invisible line and flies along the equator......

The spiral is a symbol of our time continuum as we experience it in our limited awareness. Since when you start to draw a line, time elapses, the line will turn into a spiral. If you look from above, every thing looks like a circle or spiral. 

every line becomes eventually a circle/spiral

Therefore it is also clear, that every thing that leaves us, all energy we send out will one day come back to us, will complete the cycle.

To understand this can make a big  difference in life. Beyond all religious and social “musts” we now can easily understand what the “law of Karma” or “law of attraction” really is -understand and use it for us! No external laws are necessary!

We can start to send out consciously pictures for manifestation what we want to harvest! THis is the ONE law that is important to understand:

Every thing that leaves you comes back to you one day

Therefore, do to others what you want them to do to you …. Become more and more aware how you live and start to consciously create a new life.

Its very simple ......... and life changing once you truly understand! Do you want to live in Abundance on all levels, happy and healthy?

"Helping, fixing and serving represent three different ways of seeing life. 

When you help, you see life as weak. 

When you fix, you see life as broken. 

When you serve, you see life as whole. 

Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul.    

 Rachel Naomi Remen, MD"

Therefore, give yourself a break to find clarity and find your unique strength and power.

SunPower Mandala

A little very powerful story that a friend shared:

This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.


There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. 

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. 

Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job. 

Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. 

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done
