Mind over body
Sober & Robust
with Plan B
Sober & Robust with Plan B
Plan B is a highly effective, alternative, hands-on, and truly wholesome workshop to attain mental and physical strength that will support you in overcoming any task set in front of you, much more than just getting sober and rid of addiction. You will gain self-awareness, strength, and concentration, which will make transcending your adverse habits much more manageable, yes even enjoyable. So far, this all sounds like most other introductory welcoming texts, too good and too easy. But Plan B is structured in a way to deeply touch and cleanse your body, mind, and soul, offering you mental, spiritual, and physical techniques and activities that you will be able to quickly implement into your daily routine afterward.
We clearly need alternatives to spend our time more meaningful, but also to create that sense of inner peace and harmony, where we can disconnect from this world – relax, recharge, refresh, and revitalize our body and mind, by letting it all go. If we do not know how to comfort ourselves, getting sober will always be a struggle. We drink, are addicted to drugs and medication because we find relief in doing so. Therefore, we need methods for our everyday life that give us comfort in healthier but effective ways to replace our destructive habits.
Plan B is a private guided workshop in a group not bigger than 2-4 persons, with the intention to get you sober steadfastly, feel free-minded, as well as mentally and physically vigorous. You will not be forced to change but get motivated and encouraged by being offered and practicing methods to find comfort, peace, clarity, together with inner security and confidence. We will be in our studio learning how to breathe, concentrate, cleanse, meditate, pray, exercise, create, and affirm life, as well as outside in nature hiking, earthing, reconnecting, relaxing; and we will endure cold exposure, which has a tremendously positive effect on our immune system, mind, and body – all in small, safe, but steady steps. Cold exposure is one of the most powerful practices that will enable us to break through our limitations and strengthen our resistibility – mentally and physically. Individual counseling sessions, target-state coaching, as well as anonymous Q/A group sessions are part of Plan B and give us the latitude to dig deeper, find mental root causes, and dissolve destructive thought patterns, with the effect of greatly enhancing self-realization.

Your Coach and Mentor:
My name is Jens (“Yenz”), and I will be your coach, mentor, motivator, and friend for the entire workshop. Together we will persevere, endure, transcend, and enjoy our program. It clearly is an alternative, holistic, yet effective, and practical approach. And if I had not been in a similar situation as you might be right now myself, I wouldn’t have been able to test, heal, affirm these methods, and establish them as a completion. Plan B consists only of the techniques that I have found out for myself to definitely carry the potential to heal ourselves on the three planes of body, mind, and soul, but also to help us withstand negativity, disease, imperfect ideas, and adverse habits on these three planes, steadfastly.
Nevertheless, it takes your personal readiness, commitment, and willingness to make a change. Then, together with your hope and desire for amendment, we will ignite your inner spark and lighten it up again to that fire you did not lose but quench through a delusion of disappointment, pain, fear, and ignorance. Now and together, and I give you my word; we will make a change – naturally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. You will reach a level of inner well-being, confidence, and comfort, together with mental and physical strength, and last but not least, a profound connection to your spirit within – that all together will lead you into the pathway of happiness, health, and satisfaction!
As a former professional paramedic, mechanical engineer, adventurer, athlete, artist, target-state coach, and meditation practitioner, I represent the characteristics to provide a safe and sophisticated, as well as down-to-earth, hands-on, and unique workshop that will change your life and mindset positively.
What we will do together
Plan B is subject to a varying daily schedule consisting of physical, mindful, and spiritual practices that are easy to implement and continue afterward. One of our primary goals is to internalize the techniques that enable you to maintain a stable physical and mental balance on your own. Another important goal is to enhance self-awareness and self-realization through our daily counseling sessions and guided meditation.
Detoxification will be part of our workshop from the beginning on. You will regularly test your Ph level because with too much uric acid buildup in your body, proper detoxification is almost impossible. Therefore, we will balance our PH level (and blood sugar) through entirely natural methods (breathing, nutrition, stress reduction, movement). You will daily prove and observe effectiveness to yourself. Actual detoxification then is simple and will only require you to drink a selection of organic teas, mineral water, and acv-lemon water. Blood count can be undertaken before and throughout the workshop.
In our daily guided meditation, you get to entirely relax your body and mind by simply letting it all go, unwinding, and following me into a deeper state of peace, healing, inner safety, and joy. This will be extremely helpful to calm your ego’s voice but also to find the door to your heart and enter it. We are only able to reach authentic, satisfying inner comfort and happiness through conscious spiritual communion within.
Do you really think you already know how to breathe? The breathing protocol we will study is the fundament of many of our techniques; easy yet invigorating. Breath is one of our body’s main life forces, and through a proper breathing sequence, we will not only learn how to concentrate and meditate but to positively improve our body’s biochemistry, oxygen and energy level. In the future, accurate breathing will be a massive benefit to handle all difficult situations with ease and calm.
Overcoming cold exposure is one of the oldest and most potent body-mind interventions on this planet! You might be frightened to get into the cold at first because from child on, we all were conditioned in a way to avoid the cold. We were told that we would get sick from it. Yet, for those who consciously enter and overcome the impact of the cold the opposite is the case. Through this method, you will strengthen your mental willpower and your body’s immune and cardiovascular system noticeably. It also reduces inner stress, which we will see in a calmer heart rate. You will be guided in easy, safe, and decisive steps and be stunned by this method’s capability of energizing you physically and mentally.
Mindful Counseling is a significant part of our workshop. It ranges from topics such as Nutrition & Fasting – Good Sleep – Family Constellation – The Human being; a Multidimensional Being – Influences We Can See And Not See – The Eight Principles Of Yoga, and Karma; to reliable Common Sense. These subjects are also linked to our Q/A sessions, Target-State Coaching, and Root-Cause Analysis. In the end, it is your own increased self-awareness and self-realization that will make you step forward and noticeably feel mental relief and that longed-for inner satisfaction.
We will take care of our body by exercising it gently but with discipline. All practices can be easily performed at home. Being in nature for easy hikes, reconnecting and earthing, will be like a balm to your body and soul. You will feel great relief and notice that as human beings, we are meant to be connected with nature.
Crafting, drawing, and painting help us not only to express ourselves but to focus and concentrate. In this concentration, you will forget your burdens as if they’d never existed, sense inner satisfaction, and simply smile at the result of your ability and creativity. You will be guided in acrylic pouring, freehand spiral drawing, and creating a vibrant mixed media collage.
It is through concentration, the capability of controlling our senses, thoughtlessness, and ease that we find true comfort and freedom. Our highly industrialized world, performance-oriented society, adverse ideals and desires, and a tremendous amount of data and influences have made this quite tricky, yet not impossible. We will learn how to shut off our senses, let go of meaningless information, reflect on our inner mental images, and cleanse our souls from harmful content and negative past experiences, which will boost our inner sense of liberation.
Arrangement and Procedure
Our studio is located in Rancho Mirage, CA, in the Greater Palm Springs & Coachella Valley area; a safe, sunny, beautiful, and tranquil region with perfect weather almost all year long. We will work and follow a precise schedule, daily, in a small group (2 – 4 persons), between 6-8 hours, still giving you some free time and the possibility to combine this workshop as a vacation with your partner or family. There are three different lengths to choose from (2, 3, 4 weeks), depending on your needs, condition, time, and commitment. Although an extended period always gives you more support, training, and effectiveness, you will definitely benefit from any length you choose! Pricing shown at the top/right includes the workshop with meditation, ice baths, exercises, teachings, art materials, entrance fees (for Joshua Tree NP, Indian Canyons, Aerial Tramway), drinks (detox), and one daily healthy, mostly vegan or vegetarian meal. Accommodation is not included. But the Greater Palm Springs area offers many possibilities, and we can support you in finding your perfect place near our studio. In any case of an emergency a hospital, physician, and psychologist are nearby, and having served as a professional paramedic a first-aider is always with you. We set up new workshops by interest and on a first-come, first-serve basis during any season or holidays. So don’t hesitate to contact us with your date request and questions by email, phone, or in-person visit. We are happy to provide further information and answer any of your specific questions.
