A rental car is recommended for those who like to explore the area. Get in touch with nature and your true Self. No crowds of tourists here! The retreat is designed to serve your total wellbeing, so liquor and wine are not served at the retreat. You can always find wine at the nearby restaurants if you prefer, but we encourage you to consider the benefits of abstaining (`de-toxing`) from alcohol for the retreat. 😉

No meat and no alcohol are served at the retreat. Feb meals are more frequent and simpler in presentation. Number of meals: 2x daily (MAR & NOV), and 3x daily (FEB).

ALLERGIES
If you have any food allergies or special dietary needs, please indicate this on the retreat signup form.

SILENCE
To rebalance mentally and physically we keep silence (no talking) in the mornings and late evenings, while mid-day is free for talking and as you wish.

MINDFULNESS
Cal Reiet radiates beauty and serenity. Our kind hosts and team show grace and hospitality at every turn. Mindfulness all-day is part of our retreat practice, and I encourage participants to slow down, enjoy the fragrant air with each breath, feel the texture of the smooth stones in the garden path, support the staff by taking our own dishes to the service area after meals. Simple details like this make a big difference.

WORK AS MEDITATION (February only)
In the 7-day February retreat everyone helps out with 30 minutes daily working meditation to support the retreat experience. It`s meditation in action, simple things like sweeping the walkways, placing cushions on the pool deck, preparing the yoga shala, setting tables, general cleanup, etc.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU: Clothing for warm and cool weather, sun hat, sunglasses, sun screen lotion, rain jacket, sturdy walking shoes or boots, house slippers or pool-side sandals, beach towel.

WHAT IS PROVIDED The retreat provides yoga mats, blocks, bolsters, straps, and meditation cushions. Of course you are welcome to bring your own yoga mat if you prefer.

FITNESS Physical and mental health is presupposed for all participants. This event is not intended as a substitute for psychotherapy and/or medical treatment.
