It was in early 2002 that I first went on my first retreat, to the beautiful and idylic Zen center in Southern Indian, Bodhi Zendo.

Since then I have been fortunate enough to experience other beautiful retreat centers and monasteries from various different traditions. However, there never seemed to be good, first hand and importantly, up to date information out there about where the most suitable retreats were. Like hotels and restaurants, retreats centers and the like can often go downhill depending on the management and/or teacher of the place. Hence the idea was born for this website, a platform giving information about retreats from around the world and connecting people to teachers and retreats in their search for well-being and understanding. So your reviews of retreats are really important, whether you are endorsing or being critical of a retreat, it greatly helps others in their own search.

With kindness,
