Our Naikan Retreat Programmes

"Free yourself"

What does our NAIKAN therapy programme entail? 

Most of us live our entire lives without taking time to reflect on how we are living, we are constantly in the fast lane, hardly ever allowing ourselves time to stop let alone think or immerse ourselves in meditation.

The busyness of our lives is so compelling and ongoing.  We are filled with plans, dreams and projects which keep us engaged and in motion.  All of that activity keeps our lives vibrant and interesting.

But how do we find the time and space for quiet self-reflection, if we want to want to look deeply at how we are living?   How do we press the pause button, so to speak, and reflect clearly on our lives?

A Naikan Retreat provides a rare opportunity, over the course of seven days (or 4, dependant on the chosen course), to examine your own unique life, using three simple questions as your guide. 

Other than full board and lodgings and associated comforts of a boutique hotel, we will provide you with a quiet space where Nobel silence is encouraged, a place free of digital distractions, we further offer healthy meals (mostly vegan/vegetarian), and a gentle presence as you take a guided tour through your life, discovering important truths you may have forgotten about or never noticed along the way.

What you discover, through this deep personal reflection, may inform and inspire the rest of your time on earth.  Give yourself the gift of time to explore this practice of self-reflection.

The retreat will be conducted by Binod Aryal. Binod has been conducting Naikan Retreats throughout Nepal and Europe for the past 10 years.

Space is limited.  Register early.
