Dharma Mountain - Meditation & Freedom Resort

Venue Highlights

Our unique surroundings, with big gardens and a field, which on special occasions can be used for camping, makes it possible to arrange big events, festivals, camps and concerts. At maximum capasity, we have provided food and lodging for 350 guests over four days.

Common experiences of our surroundings are relaxing in a hammock in our flowering gardens or a stroll in our birch grove, listening to the sounds of nature, the winds in the trees, the birds singing, viewing the swallows´ swirling flights over the lake… An atmosphere that invites well being, slowing down and letting go of the business of everyday life.

Close by, the river with its wild waterfalls and quiet pools, invites you for an exhilarating experience or maybe for a refreshing bath…? If you choose another path, it will bring you up to a higher point with a magnificent view over the mountains and valleys, and you may also spot an eagle!

During groups and retreats we offer different sessions and massages.
We recommend you to book before you come, to see which terapist and which sessions we can offer you.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
