Retreats & Workshops


Retreat with Nora Heilmann & Tamar Samir
In our retreats, we create an experience of deep inner quiet; we offer the opportunity to experience simple, compassionate living in harmony with nature. An important aspect of our retreat planning is to keep costs low, to make the retreats affordable and accessible to as many students as possible. Stay tuned for information about upcoming retreats for 2016. Some locations we’re currently considering: Costa Rica, Sacred Valley (Peru).
