Join us before our official opening and help plant the seeds of a thriving spiritual retreat space. We welcome volunteers who might help build a yoga platform, plant a hedge and/or cook and wash dishes. We can also support those who prefer to focus solely on spiritual practice, enhancing the subtle atmosphere of peace, harmony and openness.
We are very open to hear any feedback about your time with us, or ideas for future projects. We hope that your stay with us in the tranquil natural beauty with like-minded people brings you fulfilment and regeneration.
We don't offer formal teaching so you will need to have some experience. If you are confident for an hour of self-guided practice then we can most likely guide you to expand this into your own retreat program – we can discuss this before you book. The support of the community daily routine makes it easier for visitors to adapt to retreat life. The most important ingredient for you to bring is enthusiasm.
The resident members of our community share a passion to embrace a simple, healthy and productive daily life. Guests benefit from joining such a lifestyle, even if only for a few days. We have pricing options (details on application) for both Karma Yoga retreats (volunteer work), and retreats where guests benefit from the tranquillity of the space for spiritual practice without helping. Our focus is to support retreats, so we don't cater for people seeking a relaxing break or a base for tourism.
You will be supported in your retreat if needed, especially if you are not used to being without TV or internet for a while for example! And you will find that the general ambience makes your practice flow more easily than it perhaps does at home.
All retreats are full-catered – there are no self-catering options. We provide hearty and healthy vegetarian food packed with fresh veggies, grains, nuts and seeds. We ask guests to avoid any alcohol, tobacco, coffee, meat or fish for the duration of the retreat. We can cater for most food allergies or avoid specific ingredients, with many delicious vegan and gluten free recipes up our sleeves. Please discuss any specific requirements with us before booking.
Simply bring yourself and personal effects. We provide food, bedding and basic Yoga/meditation equipment. Detailed instructions and directions will be sent upon booking.
We are based near Welshpool, in Powys, Wales. For those of you coming from England, it's far quieter here yet only around 5 miles from the border. We can pick you up from Welshpool station which has good connections. If you prefer to drive, we are fairly close to major roads and have some parking.
Our aim is to help as many people as we can by providing this space for personal retreat for spiritual practice, contemplation etc. We eventually plan to register as ‘Not for Profit’, or even as a charity. With these goals in mind, we aim to keep the costs of your stay as low as possible, and have varying pricing tiers depending on your individual situation and the specific nature and duration of your retreat. Please contact us if you are interested and we will explain in more detail.
