Visits and Introductory Sessions
a) Individual Visit
We recommend a stay of approximately 14 days to start a process of individual deepening and growth. This type of visit allows you to find your own rhythm of therapeutic attendance.
Whenever you choose to come – after having consulted us – please make sure that the day of your arrival is a Sunday.
For the first stay an individual programme is put together which normally consists of 1 to 2 private sessions each day. In the individual sessions the focus is on the work with Guided Drawing and Personal Somatic Therapy and an additional medium of Initiatory Therapy: Colour, Music, Dance, Clay or Sword.
Generally we recommend meditation. An introduction takes place each Tuesday to Thursday. Moreover, it is possible to attend the daily morning and evening meditations.
Additionally you can take part in different group activities (e.g. Dance, Qi Gong, Aikido). We’ll ask you to discuss this with your attending therapist.
In Rütte every guest assumes the full responsibility for his/her experiences and activities in the Private Sessions and Groups.
