Promises of The Waning Sun

October 14 – October 20, 2023

The Island of Brač, Croatia

The end of summer and the beginning of autumn can evoke unpleasant feelings in many of us. It is no surprise when we recall that in literature and psychological theories, the summer often symbolizes a fulfillment of endeavors, a preferable state of being. But would we enjoy it and crave it that much if it were everlasting?

Understanding that all seasons have equally meaningful symbolism of development and the different changes we inevitably face in our lifetime, it is easier to release or maybe even enjoy the melancholy mood of autumn. And the last isn’t hard if we welcome autumn and winter season on a Mediterranean island where the weather is still bright and warm, mainly pleasant even for swimming in the sea.

After all, it is not our first time going the path from autumns and endings, through the unknown of winter darkness, repeatedly finding new ways out into springs and renewals.

As a goodbye to another generous summer, while looking forward to the path that leads to the following one, we’ll try to keep the quote by Albert Camus in mind and spirit:

“In the midst of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”

Our retreats are highly adjustable to the different needs of the participants, with the common purpose of helping people improve self-awareness, self-efficacy, and resilience as preconditions for reaching a more meaningful and happy life. They are suitable for all photography and nature lovers as well as self-explorers who would like to release negative thoughts and feelings, reconnect with self and nature, or develop a more artistic side of their photographs.
