In the evening, true peace reveals itself during Satsang with Madhukar: Thoughts fade and give way to inner silence. And that is your greatest bliss on this island idyll.

Let’s explain: Satsangs are gatherings where busy minds cool down. Through silence, meditation, dialogue, music, mantras and ecstatic dance.

Optionally free Yoga or gymnastic classes are offered. You are welcome to join!
