Rainbow Tribe
 

immersive camp for families in nature

todd-cravens-g2pdILavGCY-unsplash.jpg

We are inviting you.

To be. To rest. To share. To play. 

With everything that you are and more.

Together, we step out of our everyday lives and roles as grandparents, uncles, aunts, parents, and kids to listen and connect to the Nature we are and to move, eat, and create as equals. To connect to the elements and leave behind what is ready to be shed. Empowered, we can move into the new with a sense of vision and belonging.  Easily, we re-member how to co-create as a tribe, beyond our personal family system, and to feel how we can all hold each other.

We sleep together in a tipi or in separate tents. We cook nourishing food over the fire.  We move, we dance, we sing, we play, we co-create, we dream.  We listen to the sounds of the drum and the sounds of our voices. We notice how they resonate and play with the silence and the stories told at the campfire. We experience life within and beyond the family circle, creating connections, memories and lots of joy.

Life is simple but we sometimes tend to make it overly complicated. This is an invitation to come back to that simplicity.

We sleep nestled between two forests, with a beautiful view of the Glarus and Central Swiss Alps, right next to the crystal and medicinal herb garden.

Every member of the family is invited to grow and contribute to the tribe. Some will be cooks, some will be fire tenders, some will be singers and joy bringers and everyone from youngest to oldest will have a part to play.

This is a call to rest. To be. To experience belonging to something greater than you do in your everyday life.

 

To play. To have time. To have life. To have energy.

So you can create that, what you have always dreamt of.

I have been a joyful part of the Rainbow Tribe team since Fall 23 because for me it is about coming home to the community and finding more of myself. My time at the camp reminds me of the simplicity of life. That we nourish and heal ourselves by being together. With sounds, movement and play, we find our way back to our true primal nature. Mother Earth reminds us. 
I love to enrich the camp with my wild imagination, which takes the children into mythical worlds with dragons, fairies and dwarves.
I also enjoy playing with each other, the children and the adults, to remind us of the pure essence within us. 

I originally trained as a childcare specialist and today I have a strong vision of creating spaces for individual soul development for children and adults. 

Privately and professionally, you can find me doing Ecstatic Dance, my great passion, which has shaped me a lot in my development. I love being in nature and connecting with its forces.  It makes me feel alive and I wish that for all of us!

When I witness parent-child moments of peace, I am deeply touched at heart!

I grew up in two households at the same time, sheltered and yet with divorced parents. Until my initial training as a landscape gardener, I changed homes every week with my brother. It wasn't until much later that I realized the wisdom of setting myself up in a way that was right for me, in my very own home inside me.

As a budding systemic experiential educator and anthroposophical teacher, my pedagogical heart delights in inspiring people of all ages with my diverse and nature-loving lifestyle for the ever-present miracle of life.

Through making music I express a touch of the magic of life. To be close to Mother Earth, I like to climb trees, let myself drift in the cold stream water, cook over an open fire and sleep in my hammock.

True encounters in all kinds of colorful forms fill (my) life with spiritual richness. It is my job to remind people of this. "I and you are together with me, and together we experience each other NOW"

Alexandra Choutko

coach, teach and heal using elements from science, business, painting, movement, sounds and  indigenous wisdom. I  am the mother of four children, three of whom still walk this earth.  l spent many years living in the material world, studying, making a phd, working on my career, as I was told this was what you ought to do in life to be happy and and integrated into society. At the same time raising my children who range from 5 to 17 years old. After many years running in the hamster will, I broke free, quit my job and discovered an amazing world and was lucky to be guided by shamans and wisdom keepers from around the world. 

My heart beats for our world, our children, our companies, our society, our future.  I believe we can dream our world into being by starting with asking ourselves 
"What if everything was possible?  What would I create?  How would I like to work? to Live? And where do I start?"

Variations in the team as well as aditional instructors participations are possible.

The rainbow tribe camp is planned to take place at least once a year.
