Centro Anidra is an eco-village, organic farm, and retreat center located in the Sturla Valley, formed by a rocky stream coming down from the mountains. The center is so vast that it contains a waterfall, mountain forests, hidden glades and a hiking track and crossfit parkour that takes 45 minutes to walk. Perfect for the Spirit of the Hero camp!

Its massive tent-like "dojo", the training hall, can be opened so the daily sessions will be literally outside, if the group doesn’t train in the forest.

Imagine you wake up to the sound of the birds in the mountains. Start your day with a session of meditation and the Hero wake up training, overlooking the valley of Centro Anidra. And then enjoy the beautiful healthy superfood breakfast in the company of great like-minded people.

Outdoor camping

You can set up your own tent on one of the beautiful sites in the forest near the river. Outdoor toilets and washing facilities are provided. You will be in the middle of nature to enjoy the real adventure. The meals will be provided in the dining house with all the other participants, a walk trough the woods away.

Ecological Village

The Eco-Village consists of several wooden houses arranged into a beautiful little village. Your room will be in one of the cozy houses. Bathrooms and toilets are either in-house or in the neighboring bathroom house. There is also a sauna in the Eco-Village and the dining house belongs to it. The village is the central hub of Centro Anidra.

Old Stonehouse

The old stone house was turned into a lodge with five beautiful rooms arranged after the five elements by a Feng Shui adviser. All rooms have a bath ensuite and in-floor heating. The old stone house is beneath the herbal gardens and right by the Eco-Village. Its cozy rooms offer a comfortable and elegant stay during the camp.


Body, soul, and connection - three topics combined in 12 days

Life Atlas believes people need to come back to a holistic lifestyle and that is why the hero needs to consciously go through all aspects of his being. This is reflected in the physical training, in the meditation, inner work and in the connection to the outside world and the skills you will train in the hero camp.

Each day emphasizes one of these aspects, but also contains the other two parts. It is a fractal structure. Every topic is part of the whole. And this also boosts the outcome you get in each area.

The Spirit of the Hero process

The Spirit of the Hero camp is a powerful process. It opens the door between body, mind, and emotions through conscious and aware training methods. And it is unbelievable how much you can achieve in such an intense time.

Every day will be a Yang or a Yin day on a rotating basis. On the Yang days the focus lies on conscious bodywork, outdoor training, and fitness. On the Yin days it lies on Qi Gong, meditation, and self-development training. Nevertheless will each day contain elements from all Hero areas (body, soul, connection).

This process enables the best immersion effects and results. Every Yin day will also lead you through the phases of the five Chinese elements, which then culminate in the final Hero day.

Go through this adventure as an elite athlete or total couch potato, totally stressed out or as a longtime meditator. Let yourself be supported by inspirational like-minded people and inspire and support others. This is the Spirit of the Hero!

What you get

In the mountains of Liguria, far away from the touristic centers, where porcupines stroll trough the forests and pass along old abandoned stone houses, lies Centro Anidra, where you will be staying during the retreat.

Centro Anidra is located in the wonderful Northern Italian region of Liguria. There are plenty of things to do and explore in the area.

You can use a couple of days before or after the camp to see more from Liguria. Or you can use the free day during the camp.

Starting directly from Centro Anidra there are wonderful hiking tracks. In the surrounding mountain region, you can visit old churches, manufactories, see wild horses, climb, bike or kayak.

Following down the valley you will soon reach the Mediterranean Sea where the world famous villages Portofino and Cinque Terre are just a short drive away.

From every airport you can take a train to Chiavari near Genua. The train system is very reliable and easy to navigate.
