In Foodpath Centre the word Retreat can be trully embodied. It is an ideal place for the soul to calm, retreat for a little while from the busy outside world and look within. During the year we hold two long periods dedicated to Vipassana meditation where the Centre remains silent, in spring and in fall. We also a two week long retreat of Kriya Yoga in the fall. Group and physical activities can take place on our yoga deck under the shade of the trees or the indoor meditation hall, while there is a big dining common area, working tables, and all modern conference amenities (projector, screen, P.A, printer etc).
Our experience though the years made us realise the need for an efficient retreat management so that participants benefit the most. When managing retreats, we work side by side with the teacher to help him go through the administrative and practical tasks before the retreats starts, and while the retreat is running, we make sure that everything rolls as planned. We believe that teachers have to be concentrated into the real essence of their teaching and not bother about the everyday practicalities that concern the group.

Exercise your Spirit & Nurture your Body
We consider food as one of the most important aspects of a successful retreat. Food gives pleasure, joy, food is medicine, food is what gets you going through the day, and is something most of the participants quote and remember after the retreat has ended. A balanced, healthy and organic nutritional plan promotes the well being of the participants and multiplies the benefits of each practice. In many cases we design special nutrition menus such as raw, macrobiotic, detox-fasting etc. Designing the menu comes together with logistics, provisions, shopping lists, transportation of the goods, scouting for organic farms near by etc.
