I spent 5 days at at Paradiso last week. I really enjoyed the retreat. There were only 2 of us here on this very personal retreat. Our retreat leader, Shari really looked after both myself and the other guest throughout our stay. It was my first meditation retreat and it really met my expectations. Shari was warm, caring and went... More

It is not possible to write in words how much beauty can you see in such a small place... I traveled with a group of friends, our stay was somewhat short, but it was worth it. There is much to see and experience! Tranquility and endless joy :)
