What Else Do I Need To Know?

This is a special place and we want you to enjoy and love this community as much as we do. Living in a non commercial environment and reducing our Eco footprint requires acceptance, compassion and compromises. 

Life here is deliberately basic & rustic. We invite you to experience how little we truly need & the lightness that this brings when we reconnect with each other & the elements, as we let go of expectation and attachment to the material world.

Our community embraces the simplicity and culture of rustic Bulgarian mountain village life and recognises the benefits of a reduction in white noise and media influence. Guided by our resident coaches, our guests are supported to develop self-responsibility and practice presence and form wonderful connections within the community whilst experiencing the daily flow of life with the locals.

RisingSoul is situated on the Belitsa River, and surrounded by lush mountain valley forests, on the edge of the cultural and historic town of Tryavna. Here you will find a vibrant international community of diverse and inspiring travellers and coaches. We are waiting to welcome you to the unique experience of living, eating, and breathing yogic and Daoist practice.
