I Stayed at the Karuna Mediataion Centre for 8 days.
On arrival I was shown to my room. I requested my key and was told that someone(i do not know who) had the key and that Tom would look into the matter.
I never did get akey.
There were not heavy curtains at the windows in my room so at night there was no privacy if you need the light on.
My room was right next to the main road and was very noisy
I too was shocked by the position of the Centre i expected it ot be in a quiet villiage.
I mentioned this to Tom after my first night there, His comment was you should be able to meditate and not let the noise of the road disturb you. Thats OK whilst you are concentrating on your meditation, but at 2am when you are trying to sleep and a huge truck goes through all its gears to reach the top of the hill , is another story.
I was suprised to find out after several days that my room was not being cleaned and that Iwa expected to do it myself.
This included washing of bed linen and towels.
I was not told about having to clean my room whilst I was there or that I had to wash my own linen.prior to arrival. I was also not told that I had to clean my room on departure ready for the next tennant
The Yoga teacher was great. I am 61 and she modified the moves to suit my body.
I enjoyed the guided meditaion but aprox one hour a day was not sufficent for my likings.
I felt that I needed more guidence.
On Sunday you are expected to do chores around the Centre. I did not do them. I felt that paying $86.00 per day for my room and having to do wash linens etc was as much as I was going to do.
This centre does not provide what is advertises, and I was not the only one to think like this.
