About This Center

Many years ago, I (Stephan) visited the island Amantani and fell in love with the high energy of the place which was perfect for meditation. At an altitude of 4000m, the silence is very tangible. 

After organizing a small meditation retreat for my teacher Sahajananda, I continue to organize a silent meditation retreat every month around full moon that was taught by myself and other teachers. I feel deep gratitude for this place that hold such an impecable space for spiritual practices. 

Besides running our silent meditation retreats every full moon, we are also hosting other groups and individual throughout the month. Reach out if you are looking for a magical place to stay.

The island Amantani is one of the most beautiful and magical places I have ever been. The energy is so high yet calm at the same time and the place itself has a transformational power. So grateful for the experience! Thank you!

      Excellent retreat!

    The retreat was a perfect combination of meditation, movement, yoga, and nature. The hikes and mediation to Pachatata and Pachamama were incredible. Julia is an excellent facilitator and very tuned in to the needs of individuals and the group. All of the arrangements and transportation were handled very well. The home we stayed in was comfortable, meals were tasty, the family was very kind and helpful. Thank you so much for a great experience!

  •   For three days on Amantani, time had slowed down for me - by Nick Werber (yogi times)

    The Hridaya teaching focuses on breathing into the spiritual heart, which is where our true self resides, beyond names and conditions. I found that connecting to that place allowed me to feel a sense of wellbeing and joy, which released my creativity. My heart was like a clenched hand that had begun to loosen. ... The last night we sat our last meditation and then shared our experiences. The change in each of us from that first day was noticeable. Everyone was more relaxed, open, and happy. It seemed the retreat was a great chance for us all to stop and examine what is important to us. Most of us planned on making some changes in our lives.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To bring my friend and open her world to the gift of yoga. Denise
