There is no doubt that for most of us the mountain vacations are an exciting experience that we do not want to end. Many of us are so excited that we even prefer a mountain holiday over a sea holiday. The reasons are varied. Unlike the sea, where depending on the type of vacation, the experiences can be very turbulent, the mountain predisposes to more physical and mental peace.
It is no accident that many centers for meditation and spiritual awakening are located in beautiful mountainous areas.
Mountain is a true mystery, it inspires, it encourages, it challenges a lot of people, it trains willpower, it also relaxes the mind and helps us to strengthen that inner voice in us, known as intuition, which we often, in the course of day-to-day duties, muffle.
