choose from three venues



In the heart of the beautiful Greek countryside surrounded by fig and olive trees and where sheep graze peacefully, lies our remarkable venue on the wonderful 'Island of Hippocrates'.

Although an "away-from-it-all" feel, Stepping Stone" with both panoramic sea and mountain views, is only 10 minutes by car to the beach where we will spend some of our time, especially for the early morning sunrise or sunset meditations, meditative walks and thought training activities.

All amenities are close by. A traditional, Greek taverna with amazing views is just 10 minutes walk, the beach is a mere 10 minutes by car, a 25 minute drive takes you to Kos airport and we are just 25 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Kos town and its delightful harbour.



In the holiday corner of Eastern Switzerland with all amenities within a 5 minute walk, lies the village of Domat Ems. Surrounded by impressive mountain views, cycle and walk paths, a golf course and just 10 minutes by bus or car to some of the best ski slopes in the land. Plenty of restaurants are nearby and only 10 minutes by bus to the historic city of Chur. Domat Ems is 90 minutes from Zurich via a short, direct train ride directly from the airport to the main station from where a comfortable, Swiss style, train journey takes you to Chur and where you will be greeted warmly by your chauffeur. After just 10 minutes you are at our venue in Domat Ems or after a 30 minute ride, at a mountain chalet. A hassle free journey on one of the world`s best ever rail infrastructures, takes you through some very pretty countryside en route. Our accommodation is in single or shared rooms in the village at our venue with all mod cons. However, hotel accommodation in the village or retreats in a mountain chalet are possible on special request.



This historic farm house provides a perfect place for a cosy retreat in the Suffolk countryside. With walks, pubs and restaurants close by, Laurel farm is just a 35 minute drive from the beautiful city of Norwich which is ideal for sight-seeing and shopping at the beginning or end of your stay.

This family run farmhouse, offers single or double, modern en-suite accommodation.The rooms adjacent to the main farmhouse, seen here below, are of excellent quality and this is a superb, country venue for our retreat in England. Log fires serve to enhance the special atmosphere of wonderful Laurel Farm, which, with its special touches of love and kindness, offers one of the warmest of welcomes one could wish for.
