WHAT WILL YOU DISCOVER ABOUT YOURSELF TOGETHER WITH US?
Classical six steps of a linguistic thinking in Slovenian language, i.e. six grammatical customs of a personal growth and business communication, are upgraded by authentically preserved green energetical method of a colour healing. In a natural reserve of a colourful mixed virgin forest energetical chakras open differently than indoors where training of a spiritual experience of your own mission in not natural. At this place learning/opening of the spirit is performed sustainably and naturally, because night/light/energy/grammar have a significant power according to the tradition.
The forest is a natural environment for discovering energetic nodes, here chakras are exposed to a crown cuisine kindness and gastronomic love which flows through a stomach into brain centres, where impulses of delicious food/beverages create feelings of a pristine fulfilment.
The virgin forest is the crown of a mixed forest. It is a natural/central crown chakra, which is discovered on a basis of the heart chakra, i.e. love of the prehistoric times. The virgin forest nature is the Mother of wisdom, which has by energetical composition of purity of thinking the highest energetical characteristics of the seventh chakra. Maybe it will last more than five days, but the chakra of eternal wisdom will surely be open in your own time.
Furthermore, a hospitality of local legends shows a pure love, i.e. culture of the heart, which narrators of a mythical heritage and mediators in discovering cultural heritage hold in their blood, because it is not possible to learn it in school.
Love is expressed through a kind of breathing/functioning, because in a realistic virgin forest we get some fresh air, and start feeling deeper values of love, which are imprinted by fairies/energies and gnomes/chakras of energetically intense waves of natural values.
For in-depth perception of your own self local legends act/heal in compliance with a principle of the teaching about spiritual wisdom GNOTHI SEAUTON, which proclaims basic principles of personal development in the highest crystal clear form of wisdom. These are priceless experiential knowledge, while a linguistic diversity/colouring/wisdom presents our black communication pearl.
A phenomenon of exchanging positive energies is known to researchers of linguistic mythology as a character triangle, while modern organisational sciences of resounding use a term strong personality, which is faced in the virgin forest with its own primal fear. The virgin forest is a natural spiritual school of awakening, at that place a spiritual experience is healed/discovered by the sound of silence, as well as love, which is inseparably connected with respectful relation to the forest and natural order.
Knowing/exploring your own self in the process of active vacation is the essence of a 5-day event, which will enable laying the foundations of your own self-image in a compliance with the teaching about wisdom GNOTHI SEAUTON, which is the mirror of the event NATURA 2020.
Mother tongue is a universal feeling. Language has universal relation to alive and inanimate culture of the eternity. Language vibrates/communicates/lives actively or passively. It lives between material and immaterial customs/pieces of information. The whole information system of the cosmos circulates universally.
European cultural heritage of the Podravje region countryside transfers from generation to generation through Pohorje customs. This is the wisdom that participants of the expedition/mission bet on.
The unspoiled virgin forest is a seldom healing asset in the world. It is the extravagance, the precious luxury, which can be afforded only by those rare human beings who prefer the culture of the heart and a clear conscience. We offer both of them in abundance.
Together with us you will explore, whether you are born for luxurious experiences of primally preserved antique and energetic healing/awakening with the sound of silence, which is unbearable for certain people, because it evokes in them a paralysing fear.
The RRD expedition is focused on a spiritual experience of the sound of silence, i.e. energetic hiking, which is conducted as a realistic forest escape across the imaginary paradise NATURA 2020.
The aim of the expedition NATURA 2020 is an author transfer of material and immaterial cultural heritage GNOTHI SEAUTON to students of the wisdom of resounding. Namely, on the ground of expedition are conducted realistic forest escapes, which awaken primal competence of participants in the process of resounding/awakening their own self.

Indulgence of your soul in the untouched nature is a spiritual prestige, because the virgin forest peace and the sound of silence bring the educational luxury of a high/boutique forest tourism.
Directly communicated pieces of information by the local legends – among them is also the author of the teaching GNOTHI SEAUTON, who has a role of coordinator of the educational RRD expedition – are like pure gold, because they are the result of priceless experiences (know-how).
The main goal of the energetic hiking is to change your own behaviour patterns to awaken and purely follow experiences of the local mythical tradition, which are faced through the European cultural heritage in the Slovenian Pohorje customs Under the home lime tree.
NATURA 2020 is a synonym for unrequited love. This is the infinite energy, which is generated only by untouched nature, i.e. mother of eternal wisdom. NATURA 2020 is a mystical spiritual experience, which is primarily focused on strengthening imagination.
Spiritual experience of energetical hiking Natura 2020 is like the Vivaldi's symphony Four seasons.

Namely, you will visit: 24-metre high waterfall Grand Šumik, waterfall Verna and 9-metre high waterfall Small Šumik, because across a colossally beautiful canyon in the heart of the virgin forest flows a mountain torrential brook Lobnica, which springs on Falski tajht and runs into the river Drava.

The aim of spiritual event of energetical hiking is to enjoy infinite natural energies of 57 hectares large virgin forest reserve Šumik, which manifest at this team building as a good will of guests.
On a terrain, exploratory muses quickly and simply realize, what is a technical state of our creative abilities for team survival without a modern ICT equipment, because in the virgin forest internet and telephone do not operate, what suggests, that you experience realistic forest escape beyond imagination of European urban inhabitants. Gratitude for prosperity of the nature and God's mercy is compensated with children and animals who are welcome at team building.

Geographic expedition starts in Ruše, where the Tourist society Natura 2020 on its own initiative voluntarily enables boutique natural scientifical-spiritual-energetical-inspirational experiences of prehistoric times on 19 hectares of the virgin forest Šumik.
We gather in front of a hotel Veter, where a tourist is placed in a presidential apartment with jacuzzi and enjoys supper on enclosed individual terrace of the apartment. We have to emphasize that the hotel stands only 400 metres away of the offspring of the oldest vine in the world, called Modra kavčina. A guest every evening returns from a terrain geographic expeditions and during degustations relives reflexion of boutique daily experiences. On a terrace freely stays the night under the open sky, because s/he is attended by forest fairies. A peaceful rest and sweet dreams are also triggered by voices of an owl from the Ruše wine path. S/he is waked up by early crow of a domestic cock and twitter of birds. Reflexion of aromatherapies of antique virgin forest Šumik, which is chosen for a realistic forest escape intended for renovation of his/her energetical awareness of a mission of the nature and virgin forest, contributes to a deep raising awareness of a guest. In the morning s/he affords breakfast in the nature reserve beside Harič mill. Near Muc's rockface s/he drinks Pohorje natural mineral water and continues his/her walk along forest learning path Uršankovo. During walking s/he takes some safari photos, which show a stream Pisker, hunting tower and the first Drava hydroelectric power plant Fala. From the Harič mill we travel to the remains of so called Cebej sawmill, where we get acquainted with procedures for production of charcoal and preparation of beech firewood. In the canyon we can meet several rapids, many different animals, rich undergrowth and several waterfalls. A special aromatherapy is provided during attendance of charcoal production on a location of the former Švajger mill, because possessors had their own mills and sawmills. In the forest cottage Šumik you will enjoy dinner in nature, because return to the exploratory base Ruše is planned not earlier than in the evening. Traditionally, travellers are served by a chosen local aperitif. We also pay attention to a local cuisine and ethnography of medium mountain region of Pohorje, which is famous due to organic farms and natural sustainable development of a park of mixed forest. As a starter you get young domestic salad with a fresh sheep cheese and beef steak Pohorje Beef. Then follows a potato soup. Hot dish warms you and stirs your appetite. The main meal consists of: wild garlic noodles, young beef steaks Pohorje Beef in a horseradish sauce, grilled domestic chicken from organic farm and sauted polenta with Pohorje mushrooms. For a dessert you get sweet štruklji with tarragon. Afternoon coffee is accompanied with a local honey, which is in a free sale, as well as homemade bread baked in a farmhouse stove, while aromatic and healing sorts of tea are cooked from Pohorje flowers, usually thyme. So, degustation of food, beverages and desserts is also ideal chance for personal meetings with young farmers, who serve you products of their local breeding, production and processing. In the cottage you can also get traditional buckwheat žganci with sour milk, what is ideal supper on a terrain, if anybody wants to stay the night in the cottage instead of presidential apartment in the base with jacuzzi, essential oils and massage nozzles.
The aim of an early start of a journey is to catch golden rays of a dawn with a view upside down, i.e. from the top of medium mountain region park of mixed forest Pohorje. However, in summer heat we are pleased to enjoy coolness and beauty of mighty trees. Evening photo safaris are focused on sunsets, because the sky is splendid. Guests see the same image of the sky only once due to boutique weather conditions. Exclusive foto safari events are permanently remembered, so, guests return again and again. Special experiences are weekend degustations of popular beers of a famous brewery Lobik. In the base in Ruše is also a campsite with a filling point for electric vehicles, which is suitable for individual vacation, known as touring holidays, during which participants perform exploring accompanied with a local walker to avoid a risk to be lost or injured in the virgin forest area. Security is mother of wisdom, while the virgin forest is a strict teacher.
Gastronomic benefit is based on a local production and traditional diet. In a cottage Šumik, where you can buy local products, such as honey, bread, brandy and wines, we offer you: for a starter young salad with fresh cheese and beef steak Pohorje Beef; then follow potato soup, wild garlic noodles, young beef steaks Pohorje Beef in a horseradish sauce, grilled domestic chicken from organic farm and sauted polenta with Pohorje mushrooms. For a dessert you get buckwheat žganci with sour milk.
Supper is served on the terrace of presidential apartment or in the forest near the cottage Šumik. After evening hotel reflexion of daily experiences you also have a chance to enjoy a massaging reflex therapy of head. Sleep under the stars is possible on a closed apartment terrace as well. Degustations of wines, juices, goat cheese, salamis, for vegans by arrangement. Gastronomical benefits are spoon dishes, such as Pohorje stew, Pohorje omelette, Pohorje pancakes with cranberries, mushroom soup. The same is true for local aperitifs, too.
Realistic escape to the virgin forest for a good purpose is unimaginable for three quarters of Europeans. Namely, they do not know that they have opportunity for it only a few kilometers away. The Society Natura 2020 operates in a socially responsible manner. We invest all surplus funds in young tourist prospects, support local producers of organic food, maintain forest order and respect good manners, because we walk across a specially protected area of forest habitats and unique bird species. We build our own brand of sustainable ecological tourism Natura 2020, which is focused on boutique spiritually-energetical journeys/events. Philosophy of management is based on antique Greek wisdom of GNOTHI SEAUTON. Our benefits are locations for making photos by drones, a boutique church of the Virgin Mary in smolnik, traditional preparation of charcoal and firewood. This enables us personal contacts with local population. We benefit from everyday hotel settlement in a presidential apartment with jacuzzi and enclosed wooden terrace, what is unique among all providers of virgin forest hiking in the world. The benefit is a boutique campsite with a filling point for electric vehicles, what you cannot see anywhere else in the world. Our benefit is also the pub with production of globally famous homemade craft beers.
The programme is based on 10 top natural values of the park of mixed forest Pohorje. We are focused on events in the natural reserve Šumik. Benefits of vacation here are visits of the Botanical garden with 2,200 species of botanical inspirations, circular ride with a gondola to the top of Mariborsko Pohorje, maybe even rafting along the river Drava. We can offer many cultural events, including visits of galleries, castles, industrial and military heritage. The programme can be adjusted to priorities of guests, who are allowed to visit: Postojna Cave, Bled, Lipica Stud Farm, monastery Pleterje and castle Otočec, as well as Rakov Škocjan, Sečovlje salt pans and other destinations in the region Alps-Danube-Adriatic.
Nature conservation habitat of forests and birds
Natural sights are the remains of the Vivat's glažute (1834 – 1982) and the village Glažuta where there were two melting furnaces and ten workshops. Glass products were exported to Turkey, the Middle East and Egypt. Flint was shipped from Carinthia by rafts, wood came along the 17 km long Lobnica water stream (1836 – 1959), while the water was provided by the Black lake and Silent lake (Falski Tajht).
In the past, Pogačnik's blacksmiths (1840) and Pogačnik's power plant (1908) were located here, where today there is a modern HEPP Ruše (2012) with a total power of 110kW. The remains of the Marinc's sawmill are still visible, as well as the ones of the Cebej's sawmill, where today the forestry tradition of preparing beech firewood and charcoal is preserved, and also a location of the Švajger's sawmill with a wooden bridge, where charcoal is burnt, as well as the Marolt's stone mill with a bridge are preserved. Occasionally, only Marolt's sawmill is operating.
The only Ruše railway viaduct (1862) on the Dravograd – Maribor railway at the western roundabout in Ruše, where the entrance to the Lobnica is located, is made of three stone arches. Viaduct is protected as a local cultural monument.
The composition of the forest reserve Šumik is primeval. There are beeches, firs and spruces, hornbeam, oaks and chestnuts. This is the only composition of a mixed forest in Pohorje, where deciduous trees dominate. It is protected as a forest of special significance, the narrower part, i.e. the secondary forest of the virgin forest, has not been intervened for decades.
There are also many botanical features on the magma rocks, such as Saxifraga paradoxa, Clematis alpina and Rhodondendron ferrugineum. Special features are stone walls of granodiorite rocks, among them Ravbarske peči, along which we walk by the help of four wedges and a shorter wire rope, Jelenska peč, from which we carry out photo safari of the entire virgin forest, and Trije hlabi.
In Bajgot, near the outflow of Lobnica into the river Drava, there was a glass factory (1744) in which fine Venetian glass was made manually. The granodiorite magma rock was formed in the Miocene with the outflow of magma and later the erosion has transformed it into today's greatness. We will visit Silent lake (Falski Tajht) where Lobnica originates, flows into the river Drava as a right tributary, and on its path, there are several waterfalls, forests and two magnificent waterfalls – Small and Grand Šumik. The rocks are damp and slippery, there is no internet or telephony. We take you along a moderately difficult route, and the shorter via ferrata Bajgot is available to demanding guests. Forest reserve Šumik is the only forest area where the primeval tree structure was preserved, which is a surplus. A surplus is also the medium mountain region virgin forest extending over 57 hectares. It is the only such high-lying virgin forest and the only one with two waterfalls, including the largest such waterfall on Pohorje. We will cross the Vern waterfall between two waterfalls, which is an adrenaline surplus.
The surplus is also the longest Slovenian mountain footbridge and the hanging bridge. A powerful rumbling is an energetical surplus of the three hourly sound baths when you can enjoy the symphony of good vibrations that treat the soul. The surplus is also the aromatherapy of the forest and the possibility of picking forest fruits, from raspberries, mushrooms, chestnuts to meadow flowers and herbs, such as thyme, arnica and common centaury. Roe and deer are kings of the animal world. Wild cock is protected. There are no defibrillators. If in need, call 112. Respect forest order and good manners. You are a guest in the nature. The natural experience is a surplus of spiritual peace, the soul rests and gathers primordial energy.
The guests enter the virgin forest for the first time, they see the forest and the waterfalls for the first time, which represents a surplus for three quarters of European guests. Muses get artistic inspiration in the primeval way, i.e. by learning about themselves in extreme conditions of participation in an exploratory mission on the ground of the virgin forest, which is a unique surplus of experience. The creative intuition needed for a price breakthrough on social networks awakens. In short, the inspiration of ancient times is the surplus of realistic forest escape across the protected habitat of a special forest and special birds.
The surplus of photo safari are the photographic flights with drone that are reported to the authorities, because they are performed from the left and right banks of the canyon of Lobnica, which the hiker experiences from nearby and from the distance from the location of the church on Smolnik and from the road crossing in Sončna reber. Guests can hire a local drone operator, who reports the flights, and make photos as desired, since we look at the canyon and the virgin forest from both sides of the river, we feel it from east to west.
Free breeding of cattle takes place in all medium mountain region farms. In pastures, there is cattle of the Cika breed in the herds of about 40 cows, which is a photographic surplus, since the modern European person has not yet seen a cow from nearby, let alone to see how they graze next to him. They also breed sheep, so the valley is rich with sheep and cow cheese. Meat of pigs, in combination with horse and deer meat, is used for salami served for dinner or breakfast as a cold cut. Domestic chickens lay eggs, so home-made noodles are in soups. These are the surpluses of the medium mountain region countryside which offers exceptional panoramic and gastronomic pleasures, including degustations.
A healthy lifestyle of movement in nature and communication with animals is the surplus of the spiritual development of a traveller who spiritually and truly travels across the energetical inspirations of the ecological and civilizational prehistory. Autumn colour therapy of mixed forests is a surplus of the trip. The experience of the heavenly beautiful kingdom of the virgin forest Šumik is the energetical surplus of the photo safari.
Hiking and mountaineering are a luxury. Healthy bioenergetic treatment of movement in the fresh air is a sign of luxury. Afford yourself this luxury, since we offer you good vibration and well-being after a performed hiking test. The soul shouts of good mood.
Logistic surpluses are: only 25 km from Edvard Rusjan airport and the relative proximity of the airports in Klagenfurt, Graz, Zagreb and Ljubljana. Only 13 km away from the Vienna – Trieste railway line or only 500 m away from the railway station Ruše on the Villach – Maribor line. For the field driving in the virgin forest, only a personal vehicle is needed, which is a surplus of national geographic expeditions or realistic forest escapes. The guests use photographic equipment and the drone at their own risk.
We are the only Slovenian virgin forest where economic life is preserved. We use water energy and other renewable resources, since farms produce chips, pellets and other fuels, thus maintaining loyalty to circular forest management, which shows sustainable environmental care and boutique tourism. We are also the only medium mountain region virgin forest with a centuries-old economic tradition.
The marketing communication service on the guests' own social profiles on social networks is included. This is related to the portrait photography of Foto M, aerial photos with the guest and also personal marketing on the blog of the society and management of the guest's Instagram experience on his account, which we provide as the first in Slovenia. Thus, you can feel the virgin forest Šumik individually or collectively, as a personal treatment of 5-day aromatherapies, since every oxygen atom is an added value to the red blood cells that awaken the kundalini energy.
By special order, we create a 3- or 1-day energetically-spiritual hiking team building where we provide for the spiritual supply of high vibration energies. The service is already included in the offer which also includes food from a backpack with local delicacies by local producers. It is suitable for all age groups of guests, from the youngest to the oldest, since the programme is individually customisable.
Apart from the biggest stars of film and photography art, our target group are also children whose value is the inclination towards art, culture, social networking, spirituality and sports.
Our guests feel like kings of the virgin forest, because we take exclusive time for them to experience a boutique event according to their wishes. Hiking is not competition who will finish it first. It is experientially adjusted to physical parameters of taking care for yourself, as well as moral values.
Our ideal guests are, for example, film star Keanu Reeves, sports star Luka Dončić or first lady of the USA Melania Trump. Become a world star, experience the 5-day high intensity energetically-spiritual realistic forest escape across the virgin forest Šumik.
Guarantee – we will immediately return your money, if you do not achieve a fair satisfaction.
Exclusive journey takes 5 days/4 nights. Max. 6 participants.

THE EXPLORATORY BASE Natura 2020
- Natura 2020 forms a geologic whole of the Eastern Alps – a natural ecosystem between the green Pohorje Mountains, Drava river and Kozjak Hills. Raised bogs, such as the enchanting Black Lake, Lovrenc Lakes and Ribnica Lake are a special feature of Natura 2020. The more demanding visitors of nature find it priceless to visit the heavenly gorgeous waterfalls, such as the Šum Waterfall, Skalca Waterfall, Verna Waterfall, four Small Šumik Waterfalls and the Grand Šumik Waterfall – the king of the Šumik Virgin forest. The height of the waterfalls ranges from 9 to 36 m. The tourist hike in this oasis of tranquility, stillness and sound spas culminates in the retreat to the eternal Šumik Virgin forest. Trails leading to the waterfalls are very slippery which is why hiking equipment is required/recommended and you hike at your own risk. Telephone and internet services are not available.
- The trail through the virgin forest to the Grand Šumik Waterfall is demanding and not appropriate for children and dizzy persons.
