An oasis of inspiration in the heart of Switzerland

Schweibenalp is a place of power at 1,100 metres above sea level in the midst of nourishing nature. In our working and living community, we take steps in the exploration and realisation of a sustainable culture of living and working. We see ourselves as a field of action for a holistic change of consciousness.

In this orientation we jointly run the seminar centre, the Alpine Permaculture and the Temple of Unity. For 40 years the Centre of Unity has been contributing to the development of a holistic culture of life and universal spirituality. We owe this to the large number of people who support the project with their work or a financial contribution.

Every contribution to strengthen this unique place is valuable and welcome.

Seminars & Events

In our seminar centre we host a variety of events, mainly in the fields of dance, music, yoga, bodywork, meditation, personal development, coaching, community building, peace building, spirituality and on the various aspects of permaculture.
