Meditation and Nature Retreats

One of a kind, private, personalized, just for you.

Come home to yourself

Dive into your own joyous presence

All the retreats are an invitation for those who have a deep longing in their heart, a feeling in every fiber of their being to find their true home

Most retreats and vacations offer you more of this and that

I offer you: less is more, less doing and more being

A quiet calm presence

 

Re-discover simplicity, sincerity, undoing, dissolving, freeing yourself from all the extra accumulations that create a burden in your life

They are one-on-one, you being the recipient, me being the facilitator, and nature supporting the experience as a catalyst

You will be immersed in a curated space, specifically created to allow you the opportunity for un-doing and transmuting the accumulated dross of daily living

Personal experiences from guests

"The ten days retreat was glorious, a blessing, and a time for be-ing as well as healing. Aarya's retreat offered a beautiful, tranquil, outdoor oasis, healthy organic vegetarian meals, meditation, mantra work, chanting time, along with a rebalancing mat and refreshing yoga nidra experiences. Aarya also guided us with deeper self discovery techniques. Numerous times during our stay, we smelled jasmine in the air indicating the presence of the Divine. My sister and I look forward to another retreat with her as soon as time permits. Thank you Aarya Joy! You are a blessing!"

-Elizabeth True

Thank you Aarya for offering us such a wonderful, peaceful retreat. You truly went out of your way to make us feel at home and comfortable. I am going to make sure to keep up with my meditation exercises! All our blessings on your next adventure.

We are looking forward to staying in touch."

Full description

I have lived a very private lifestyle of self-discovery and inner cultivation for over twenty years. Now I am opening my home and space for this One of a Kind, rare gem of a retreat

Gift yourself the precious time and space to balance, restore and nourish your vast inner being

You will be welcomed into a home that is loved and cared for, eco-friendly, rustic yet very clean. It is simple and sincere and it has its wrinkles - like most of us, it is weathered by the elements :-)

The space is furnished with non-toxic, eco-friendly, organic furniture which provides a clean and healthy environment where you can be comfortable, relaxed, replenished, and blessed!

 

Therefore, it is a unique and different experience from a luxury hotel or a vacation condo

 

We are in the midst of a tropical lush environment. The accommodations are naturally in harmony with the surroundings, which means, we share with the geckos, the ants, bugs, birds, cats, mongoose, and all the other beings that call this magical place their home

It rains and things get wet. The main living areas are open-air to best enjoy the fresh breeze and forest bath provided by the trees. There is dust, it is humid, some things can get musty even with the utmost cleanliness and care

We are very detailed when it comes to cleanliness, and I do the cleaning myself. Therefore, you can be assured that the entire house is thoroughly cleaned consistently and kept very hygienic

There are night-singing frogs that provide a constant lullaby (good to mitigate the road noise of cars passing by)

We strive to live as much as we can in an environment that is free from pollution: be it sound, air, electromagnetic, food-related, etc. Therefore, we turn the WiFi and electricity off every night

We use only organic non-toxic supplies and toiletries. We eat and drink only organic non-GMO, fresh food

We rejoice that our guests embrace and look forward to coming here at ease and joyful that we embrace this simple and WELL-being lifestyle

 

The intention of the immersion is to flow with effortless ease within and without and in line with the rhythm of nature as it presents itself to us every day. Therefore, the schedules presented are a sample

Each morning as we see what wondrous surprises the dawn brings, we determine the full schedule of the day, always allowing space for change and new ideas to manifest

You will enjoy:

  • Silence, nature, contemplation, meditation, inner exploration, purification physically, mentally, emotionally spiritually.

  • Gorgeous Sunsets, each day a new wondrous expression of color

  • Fresh picked organic fruit, directly from all around you

The food

You will enjoy a vegan lifestyle with the delight of organic fresh fruit from the farm (as seasonally available), tea, filtered water, and one main meal for intermittent fasting.

Main meal:

I make the Kitchari with organic black forbidden rice, sprouted lentils, coconut oil, and spices

Throughout the rest of the day: Tea, water, and organic fresh fruit as seasonally available

Extension of Stay

 

After the initial package, you are welcomed to extend your stay. Either continuing with scheduled retreat practices and activities or 

 

If you would prefer a more free flowing time and space to create your own schedule and personal meditations, with a more subtle support and less engagement with me. I can offer room with the daily meal, fresh fruit and water plus car. With no facilitation of activities, which leaves open day for your own design and creation.

 

If you have a loved one who is also on this path of self-cultivation and would like to immerse in the retreat as well, and you are fine with sharing bedroom and the queen bed, we can potentially accommodate for both to come together.
