Albert Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Many of us live like this our whole lives and we often end up feeling tired, bored, restless, frustrated, hopeless or helpless. If this sounds familiar to you, it might be a good time to unplug and go on retreat.
Spiritual retreats allow us to take time for ourselves; rest the body, work the kinks out of our system through yoga, sit in meditation to settle the mind and reflect clearly, and finally reload with good dose of spiritual teachings. This is just what we do at our retreat with Lama Marut and Cindy Lee every year. This year’s teachings aim to awaken us to our Buddha nature by learning how to work with anger, pride, jealousy, desire and ignorance – five common hindrances that prevent us from being our true self and living the life we want to lead.
There will be daily kirtan and a drawing workshop to let our creative juices flow and transformation take place. We also get 4 hours of free time each day to relax by the beach, soak in the sun and sea. With accommodation and all food taken care of, there is really nothing to stop us from discovering what’s really important to us and reflecting on what’s really going on in our life.

Hope to see you there!
