Through meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises) and other techniques we will start to tune into our deeper wisdom.

Yoga unlimited!

In case your body needs meat or fish, just let our chefs know and they will prepare it for you.

The Teachings of Osho

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, also called Osho (1931 - 1990), was in Indian spiritual teacher who got famous worldwide during the time of the Beatles and “flower power”. The mass media branded him the “sex guru” as, among other things, he advocated not to suppress our sexuality. What few people know is that Osho started as a renowned professor of Philosophy with a deep knowledge of the spiritual traditions of the world. In this retreat we will cut through the clutter the mass media have piled upon the person Osho and look into the profound teachings that he left behind. Osho’s talks are fun to watch, they will make you laugh, and give you lots of inspiration on how to approach your own life in way the liberates yourself and help you to realize your fullest potential. We will do this in after-dinner presentations and discussions that are optional to attend. During the morning yoga sessions we also offer to participate in a special kind of dynamic meditation created by Osho.
