About This Center
La Casa de Loto is a Meditation & Yoga Retreat Centre, high up in the magical Colombian mountains, founded and run by Karma Pema Tsering. You will find us just an hour away from Medellin City, and 45 minutes from its international airport MDE/JMC. Here we offer you daily guided meditations, yoga classes, question and answer rounds, freshly cooked organic food, and optional Ayurvedic and Chinese massages, Shiatsu and Reiki treatments, all in a nourishing environment surrounded by nature.
Our aim is to teach you how to embark on or deepen your spiritual life with a clear path; how to practice, how to advance in your practice, and how to integrate it into your daily life. The teachings are mainly based on the ancient Buddhist and Vedic practices of Samatha meditation (calming the mind), Vipassana meditation (insight into the true nature of reality), Tonglen (compassion meditation), yoga asanas (postures), and pranayama (breathing exercises). To support your stay and help develop your inner growth, we also imply the practice of noble silence for some days each week. The practice of noble silence is based in an orientation of inwardness, of letting go of one’s normal need for social acknowledgment and interaction, and the outcome can be profound and life-changing. If its your first retreat, don´t worry - we are here to support you. We also have some time for practice- and general questions after the guided meditation every day, and you may always ask Pema for personal advice.
Each Sunday La Casa De Loto receives visitors from all over the world to attend its week- or month-long retreats and enjoy the restful, rejuvenating and spiritual atmosphere of the surroundings. Absolutely all who want to embark on, or deepen their spiritual practice, are happily welcome to join us.
