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 his life partner Rose live in Andalusia, Spain where they are building a meditation retreat: "Secret Garden Retreats". Ian is deeply committed to his own spiritual work. The Secret Garden is his life's vision and desire to bring more love and light into this world. Ian cares deeply and his gentle yet direct approach is refreshing.
