I just led a group of students to 6 day retreat at Prema Shanti. From the moment we arrived we were all captivated by the peaceful surroundings and the cozy, laid back setting. The facilitators Mara and Janardhan are kind and gracious hosts and we instantly felt at home. The experience was perfect for our group of novices. Morning meditation with a dharma talk and evening yoga were a great intro into mindfulness. We also loved having afternoons off to explore the amazing rainforest and beaches or just relax in the hammock on the immense Prema Shanti porch. The simple and delicious meals are enjoyed outside on the upper porch and the rooms below are simple yet beautiful. As the group leader I have been to several yoga and meditation retreats and what I loved most about this place is the small scale, personal attention, the relaxed atmosphere, and the Eco consciousness of the entire place.
