Some people like to come and want minimal interaction. The spend their time here in silence. We bring the meals to their accommodations and see very little of them. We have accommodations where you truly feel left "alone" in nature. A great power comes from having absolutely no distractions in this way. Other people like to be on a schedule and want more interaction with us. For us we hold it that we go on the journey with you together. We might start the day together doing yoga followed with a healthy yummy breakfast. Then we might meditate together and discuss some. Lunch is served. The afternoon is usually spend alone, exploring the beautiful nature surroundings or just sitting around in gardens of the Secret Garden. We come together for tapa's and have a great meditation for the evening.
So you see there are many different ways to create your retreat.
Rose has lived out of a suitcase for the last 25 years. Not because she was homeless. She was on a journey around the world looking for Home. Home of the truth, the love and feeling of belonging, fulfillment and connection that she knows was inside of her but could only feel short moments in time and then for it to disappear again. Along that journey one of the things that crossed her path early on was the practice of meditation. From the first moment she knew she had to master the art of meditating because through and in meditation she realized we can tap into a power that can transform us.
Ian is Rose's life partner and co-founder of the School for meditation. They live in Andalusia, Spain where they are building a meditation retreat called "Secret Garden Retreats". You could say that this is the "home on earth" for the school for meditation, besides it being online available to the whole world. As this world seems to become more and more crazier with the day their goal is to create a place where you can take time out, relax, let go of all the things you do and think about every day and find our connection again.
The retreat will take place at the Secret Garden Retreat, an 11-acre paradise located in Andalusia, Spain.
