The weekend workshops take place in Basel, Bern or Zurich.

The stationary 5-10-day courses take place in the tranquil Saanental (Bernese Oberland) or wildly romantic Safiental (Graubünden), far away from tourism, the hustle and bustle of the big city and everyday stress. Schönried is a romantic mountainous chalet village; Tenna an original wild-romantic mountain village. Both are located on a sunny terrace in the respective region.
