And Awaken Your Spirit Of The Hero!!

The Hero Training


We created this training process because we discovered for ourselves how powerful it can be to combine body, mind & emotions through conscious and aware training methods.

We found our own inner hero not on the outside but on the inside. We believe that you don't need to rescue people from a fire, you need to use your full potential. 

For us this hero power is gained trough the combination of conscious bodywork, outdoor training & fitness, meditation and self-development training.

Go through this adventure as an elite athlete or total couch potato, totally stressed out or as a longtime meditator.

If you want more, than this is your summer camp!

Ingredients of the Hero Camp





In the mountains of Liguria, far away from the touristic centers, were porcupines stroll trough the forests – lies Centro Anidra.

An Eco-village, organic farm and retreat centre located in the Sturla valley - so vast it contains a waterfall, mountain forests, hidden glades and a hiking track that takes 45 minutes to walk. Perfect for the Spirit of the Hero camp!

So imagine you wake up to the sounds of the birds in the mountains. Start your day with a session of meditation overlooking the lush valley, already looking forward to the beautiful superfood breakfast.




If you love Italian food, and at the same time want to detox your body, you will crave every meal at the Spirit of the Hero camp. 

The chefs at Centro Anidra create 100% plant-based meals made from local organic products, often coming straight from their own gardens.


A hero needs knowledge and a hero needs to be challenged!

And for us experience is the foundation of the camp. That is why you will dive into the 'Mori Gari' forest challenge, Shamanic journeying, Nutritional Workshops, Intuitive Archery & much more...
Growth is what we want to create. And growth needs challenge, knowledge and new experiences.

The Surrounding


Centro Anidra is located in the wonderful Northern Italian region of Liguria. There are plenty of things to do and explore on the free day during the camp.

Starting directly from Centro Anidra there are wonderful hiking tracks. In the surrounding mountain region, you can visit old churches, manufactories, see wild horses, climb, bike or kayak.

Following down the valley you will soon reach the Mediterranean Sea where the world famous villages Portofino & Cinque Terre are just a short drive away.

was really nice. ”

What is

Secret Elements Qi Gong?


Secret Elements Qi Gong is a Qi Gong, Self-Balance & Therapy method developed by international teacher Sascha Wagener and well-known German Kinesiologist Martin Nienhaus.

It connects the ancient knowledge of Chinese Qi Gong & medicine with modern research from Kinesiology and Psychology. As a compact self-help tool it empowers people to balance their physical and emotional state and actively take their health and happiness in their own hands.

The body awareness gained by practicing Qi Gong is unparalleled and lets the practitioner experience himself/herself on a new level of connection.

Now taught around the world SE Qi Gong enriches the toolbox of many therapists, Yoga teachers & people interested in their own holistic health preservation.

Skye Smith

Yoga Teacher and Graphic Designer

“The Secret Elements Qi Gong Course was deeply insightful and gave me a great understanding of how energy and the natural laws of the universe work. Sascha is a patient and kind teacher and holds a depth of knowledge. I feel excited to share what I have learned with others and to continue to practice the techniques to master Qi Gong and all areas of my life.”

Rachel Niclair

Yoga Teacher

“I really got a lot out of the course. I would say it is accessible even to people who have never practiced qi gong before, like myself. I loved that it was a fun, informative yet experientially focused way to learn the Secret Elements practice.
Thank you so much for the training. I am looking forward to level 2! Much love!”
