Included in your retreat

All Immerse retreats offer four-star accommodation and an inspiring range of activities, as well as a program curated and hosted by Diccon Bewes – all included in the price. Every retreat adheres to Swiss Ministry of Health guidelines for corona prevention and offers free cancellation. Due to restrictions, meals are optional in our 2020 retreat, and are not included in the price. We'll let you decide upon arrival if you'd like to eat with us, or make your own arrangements at the many local restaurants.

Email us if you have any questions. And keep reading to learn what makes this retreat special. 


The Sorell Hotel Tamina is a lovely hotel with modern rooms right in the centre of this historic spa town. It's a short walk from the station (just an hour from Zurich HB), or there is parking nearby. Breakfast is served in a relaxed setting, or on the terrace if the weather is nice. Twin rooms available upon request, and all rooms are ensuite. Naturally the hotel is currently following strict corona protocol for cleaning and hygiene. 


Each morning, Diccon Bewes will lead two seminars designed to help you understand this unique country better. By the end of the weekend you'll have dived into Switzerland's history and political system, and had a taster of Swiss food and culture.


The curated program continues each afternoon with activities that give you a hands-on immersion in Swiss culture. These include a tasting tour of the Bündner Herrschaft, one of Switzerland's premier red wine regions; an indulgent afternoon at the Tamina thermal baths; and an exciting stroll through the Tamina Gorge.  


Breakfast and our coffee breaks are served in the lounge of the hotel. For the other meals we'll visit some of our favourite restaurants in the area where you'll be able to choose from a range of options, including vegetarian or vegan. We can also accommodate participants with allergies if we know in advance.

Due to corona, meals at our 2020 retreat are optional as we cannot guarantee social distancing. You can decide upon arrival whether you'd like to join us. If you do, you'll pay for the meals yourself, but we'll take care of the reservations. 

Time for yourself
and time for others

Whether you're coming on the retreat to recharge, or want to spend time with friends, or want to meet others who have recently moved to Switzerland, our retreats offer the time and space to relax, to chat, to play and to have fun. No part of our program is mandatory. Come immerse with us – you deserve it. 

No-risk free cancellation

We're living in uncertain times, so rest assured you can cancel up to 24 hours before the start of the retreat and get a complete refund. If you fall ill during the weekend we'll even refund any parts of the retreat to come as long as you tell us by 10am the day you need to leave.
