A sanctuary where all yoga and meditation activities and retreats are focused on developing your self-awareness, while enjoying every moment of your stay.

Dharma Garden Retreat Center

Dharma Garden is the perfect place for you. Nested on a hilltop overlooking the lush green valley, Dharma Garden is a beautiful and perfect place to reconnect with life itself. Apart from the facilities given, you can stroll along nature or dive in the cool waters of the river crossing the property. All and all, this is a place to relax, turn off your phone, and start listening to yourself. In the night, the sky lights up and you find yourself bathing in the milky way stars while shooting stars often cross the night sky making this an ideal place to dream and make wishes come true.


Ayahuasca takes you on a deep inner journey of self-investigation and gives you opportunities to confront your ego and let go of it. This process is challenging; it requires one to fully surrender to the power of the plants and understand the illusory nature of lifelong fortified concepts of “the self,” which we identify with. The most important question to ask yourself when starting the microdosing journey is what your intention is. Next to traveling, meditation, yoga and surf exercise, there are numerous options that could support the process, like psychotherapy, holotropic breathwork, changing your job, or starting more purposeful and fulfilling relationships. These are just some examples of how you could introduce more mindfulness into your life. In the end, ayahuasca doesn’t give you a cure – it just illuminates all the homework you still need to do yourself.
