 Clearer states of consciousness

Claudia laughing group

Meditation and other practices to produce clearer states of consciousness are central to our retreats. 

In order to support this, we don’t take alcohol or anything else that could cloud our awareness during the retreats.  This includes when we have lunch at local places during our outings.

We are famous for the quality of our food, and the locally grown fresh organic ingredients which are balanced in a satvic way help us to feel great and to support our digestive and mental wellbeing. 

In keeping with our ethos, the new centre has been designed with well soundproofed rooms where you are guaranteed silence for a very restful sleep.  Black-out blinds, a choice of two types of pillows, hotel-quality mattresses, and Egyptian cotton bed linen are just part of the importance placed on getting a good night’s sleep.

Our retreats offer complete freedom from Digital devices.  

Phones are turned off (or airplane mode), the internet, news, and other distractions are left behind, and the resulting freedom is beneficial for a more light-hearted feeling and ability to be in the present moment.

We recommend that you take a complete digital detox.   

However, there is WiFi access in the upstairs lounge for emergency use.   If you need to use it, we ask you to be mindful of your fellow guests and their need for peace and quiet and lack of intrusion from the external world outside the retreat.

 Preparing for the Retreat

You don’t need to do any preparation, and it is fine if you have not practiced previously.

However, if you are interested in getting the most out of the retreat in terms of meditation, you may like to consider signing up for our 30 day online meditation course.

It can be very beneficial to learn how to meditate and also to begin to establish a daily practice before you get here. 

This is one very positive way to set the intention to continue with a daily practice after the retreat. 

The cost of the 30 day course is €120 which works out at €4 per day.
