It´s hard to explain the experiences of my two very intense retreats - full of love and wisdom - with words ;-) - JUST GO THERE and feel and experience it yourself!! I can definitely say that they changed my life in the best way I could ever imagine and I am deeply grateful that my spiritual search and way led me finally to the right place! From the bottom of my heart - THANKS to Rose & Ian The place is just magical! Ian & Rose help you on every question you have without a blink. The break trough had helped me so much!! I can really advise you to go if you want to change from the inside out. Much love, Silvia This is the most nourishing, invigorating and life-changing trip I've ever been on. Ian and Rose run the perfect retreat to detox and reboot yourself. The food is amazing and freshly prepared by Rose from ingredients on their own land. You can stay in a really comfortable and cosy yurt, amidst four acres of orange groves, and there's a crystal clear spring river running right past the grounds, which is great for swimming. I cannot speak of Ian and Rose or their retreat highly enough... perfect. Never mind whether you have done any kind of meditation before or not, if you haven't tried this one, the best present you can give to your own self is to try it. I did a 7-day retreat recently and I can say is that it has been a milestone in my search and personal and spiritual path. Rose and Ian are superb as well as the place itself. Nature in its true state and connection to the core!! I never expected such a wonderful week. Rose and Ian took care of all our needs. We had a unbelievable time, which has changed our life. It is difficult to describe, because the retreat is so individual. But I would promise, you get much more than you expect! If you are brave enough, do it! It's worth! Secret Garden is perfectly balanced to help you find whatever you are seeking inside yourself: beautiful landscape, carefully and lovingly designed and executed, amazing teachers and friends and very nice, homemade food. Accommodation is comfortable. A quiet, very special place. The Secret Garden with Ian and Rose is a magical place. The setting is peaceful and gorgeous, the food is delicious, and the experience is life changing. Rose and Ian have created a space unlike any other I've ever been. For the time you are there, you have the chance to let go and immerse yourself in meditation, relaxation, and connection. I was beyond inspired and moved by Ian and Rose themselves and the gifts they share with so many others. This was the best thing I have ever done for myself and I can't wait to go again. I highly recommend this retreat to everyone!
