Hi friends I was lucky enough to visit Tobi and Parn last week and 6 days on i still feel amazing. Before attending the retreat i had tried to teach myself meditation through youtube videos, guided meditations and various breathing techniques on and off for a few years but sadly never really felt i was achieving much. In only 4... More

The presence of Tobi is just mind blowing and he really simplifies how to adapt and be present in your daily life. The staff in combination with an extremely present and kind Parn gives the stay a touch of unconditional love. Would recommend this to anyone.

I booked this five-day retreat with a simple goal to reset my thinking and to gain a few skills on my own path to meditation and a peaceful mind. I had no idea what to expect (did not read any of these reviews in advance), and arrived with an open mind to enjoy five days of quiet time for myself... More

Compared to many others who offer guidance on finding a path to peace, Tobi has the advantage of being down-to-earth and practical. He understands that sitting cross-legged can get painful, that we'll have thoughts banging around in our minds when we're hoping to be lost in our own breathing, that we'll get frustrated and depressed. And instead of simply talking... More

Tobi and Parn have created a lovely space. Accommodations, care, teachings, and excursions all combined for a wonderful experience. I stayed in the basic accommodations which were spacious and spotless.

Thanks to Tobi, I now have a much better understanding of how to meditate and how to live a more fulfilling life. We will definitely try to come back and learn more. The secluded environment is perfect to calm the mind from daily stimulus. If you're not serious about meditation or "waking up" your inner being though, you might find... More

I stayed with Tobi and Parn for 2 weeks this year and whilst it was a challenging time (as any inward journey will be) their combined care and knowledge provided me with a wonderful place to begin this path. I have tried to get my head around meditation for a couple of years now but Tobi's teachings pointed me in... More

I had been curious for a long time about what meditation was, but I couldn't really figure it out. During this retreat I found a surprisingly rich, profound, mind blowing and honest answer. It was not about selling a concept, not about been hooked to come back, not about religion or joining a special group. It was just about finding... More

Life Changing' is exactly what this retreat was for me! Thanks to Tobi & Parn they have created a beautiful environment for "going within" by learning and practicing meditation. They have designed a relaxing program in a wonderful setting with daily excursions, thoughtful lessons, abundant practice time, yoga, Qi gong, tasty meals, and excellent accommodations (the deluxe room is great...
