Canary Islands Retreat 

September 28 – October 5, 2019
Lanzarote, Spain

Lanzarote is one of the best-preserved islands of the Canary Islands in Spain off of the cost of Portugal. It offers mild and pleasant temperature all year round, crystal clear waters with abundant marine life, relaxing beaches and 300 volcanoes that give special energy to the land.

It is the silence and tranquility of the island that is unique, that makes it a perfect place for a spiritual retreat to find harmony and balance in the unique nature that is offered here.

The retreat center was built to offer a place where people can regenerate and nourish themselves through the power of nature, relaxation, and healthy eating.

It is immersed in the calm interior of the island, surrounded by vineyards, only 15 minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches and 20 minutes from the airport (with direct flights to most European capitals).
