No distractions

How does it work?

What is it that you like to receive from doing a retreat?

Then you decide:
  • what your goals are and what you want to achieve
  • the duration of the retreat
  • the date of the retreat
  • where you like support and guidance from the staff
  • how much interaction you want with others

One of the staff will be in contact with you to help you design your retreat. We are completely committed to you reaching your goals and have the best possible experience ever.

Some people like to come and want minimal interaction. They like to  spend their time in silence. We bring the meals to their accommodations and see very little of them. We have accommodations where you truly feel left "alone" in nature. A great power comes from having absolutely no distractions in this way.

Other people like to be on a schedule and want more interaction with us. For us we hold it that we go on the journey with you together. We might start the day together doing yoga followed with a healthy yummy breakfast. Then we might meditate together and discuss some. Lunch is served. The afternoon is usually spend alone, exploring the beautiful nature surroundings or just sitting around in gardens of the Secret Garden. We come together for tapa's and have a great meditation for the evening.

There are so many different possibilites. If you like to explore what the possiblities are to create your own retreat we invite you to request a personal retreat program designed to your needs to reach your goals.

"The space is so pure and free from any belief or dogma"
"Thank you for being so sensitive to my needs"
"You have given me back a husband that can't wait to come home to me"
I wanted to do a spiritual retreat for many years but could never find the right place to do it. I feel very fortunate to have found Ian and Rose at the secret garden retreats. They helped me design the perfect program for me. I was there for 16 days and each day I got exactly what I needed to keep going further into myself. The space that Ian and Rose create is so pure and free from any beliefs or dogma. I felt I moved spiritually so much, more then I normally would achieve in a year. I am planning to come back once a year for my yearly retreat and hopefully bring my partner also.

P.S Ian's massages are the best!

I have been looking for a long time for a place where I can do my yearly silent retreat and I found the perfect set up at the secret garden. I stayed in the orange yurt which is in an orange orchard, completely quiet and so comfortable. I gave the staff my phone and tablet and Ian would bring me my meals so I had no distractions whatsoever. Ian and Rose where there for me when I needed them. They did yoga in silence with me in the morning and sometimes we meditated together at night. I had a conversation with Rose twice when I felt stuck. She has a keen insight and helped me to clear my mind  and let go more. I did not need much and this was just perfect for me. Thank you for being so sensitive to my needs.

Creating my own retreat was the best thing I have every done in my life. My life felt automatic and I felt tired and knew I had to find something new. It was clear to me that I was not going to find it outside of myself, but I had no idea how I was going to find it within. The program Rose helped me to design was spot on. I found what I needed and got so much more thanks to the acute perceptions shared so lovingly and compassionately by Rose. Ian is just God inspired and his massages are truly the best. And then there is the great food, the beautiful river and the great yoga and meditation sessions. Don't hesitate, just go! You will not be dissapointed.
