May - Nov

The RisingSoul provides the perfect place to “Connect Nomads & Self Practices In Nature” allowing our amazing residents and guests to find their own mind, body and spiritual connection. Our venue is built from earthy organic materials and brings our guest a fusion of rustic practice spaces, mountain valley and ancient church views.

The RisingSoul is developing as a community which values equability, sustainability, freedom of expression and mind body and spiritual awareness. We welcome all travellers and are especially conscious of providing a safe space where solo female and male travellers can feel at home, safe, respected and comfortable.

Belitsa is a small Bulgarian Mountain Village with room for our community to develop and expand. Set between Tryavna and Voneshta Voda Mineral Spa in the Balkan Mountain region of Gabrovo, it is surrounded by natural parks and rivers. With the old capital Veliko Tarnovo, just 25min North East. (Famous for protecting the Balkans from the Ottoman invasion) and one hour South West from the Valley of the Roses, Shipka Pass and the Uzana ski resort. If you would like to know more about how and why I have a property in Bulgaria head on over to my author bio to get some background.

We are delighted that with the help of WorkAway volunteers despite a long COVID induced delay we were able to launch our Yoga Barn and our BalkanNomad venue for digital nomads and solo travellers. Our fun, friendly team provides a supportive, flexible, non judgemental environment for a diverse community of travellers, volunteers and nomads to share their creative ideas, yoga, travel and work experience in.

The RisingSoul Team will arrange a variety of social events, off-site group activities, visits and mountain sport. At home our well-equipped work areas and leisure facilities allow you to excel in your working life and thrive in your own unique blend of community, social activity and mind-body retreat. 

Guests can join any part of our ashram style daily schedule, we hold daily meditation & yoga practice sessions. All BalkanNomad, RS Lodge and RS Community guests can join classes for the the single class minimum donation of 7lv, for longer stays a pass can be agreed.
