Many past participants have told me these retreats are profound for them, but it’s hard to continue the momentum when they get home. For that reason, I’m recommending to join a mindfulness and meditation course that you can complete either at your own pace (click here if this is your prefered option) or in a group where you’ll meet online with me and others once a week. This course will help you build a solid mindfulness and meditation practice and grow the flow and mindset you will create when participating in the retreat.
To read more detailed information about this course and to register for the discounted price of the retreat and course together, please click here.
Cost of the retreat without follow-up program is 27.500 shillings.
This price includes two nights accommodation (shared rooms), two times breakfast, lunch and dinner (all delicious and vegetarian), all meditation sessions, and contemplation material to help you reflect on your life.
BUDGET OPTION: If you don’t sleep in the house but bring your own tent/mat/sleeping bag instead, cost will be 18.500,- shilling.
Note: If you register and pay before 30 August, you’ll benefit from an early bird discount price and only pay 24.750,- shillings!
Participants can share cars to and from Thika. Maximum amount of participants is 10.
