  • Description

    Description

    Come and help out in our Family run Retreat Centre at the Agean Sea. We are a turkish/french/spanish/german couple with 2 little boys (5 yr and 10 yr) and a wonderful staff of local Turkish people running a 15 rooms, a seminar hall and a pool, ecologically built Retreat Centre.

    We provide workshops, seminars and trainings almost all year around. Our local and international Facilitators come from all walks of life; all are dedicated to meditation and self inquiry, and are sharing their knowledge in Family Constellation, Detox, Ayurveda, Yoga, Breath, Massage, Zen Coaching, Sufism, Shamanic Energywork, Feng Shui, Osho Active Meditation, Osho Meditative Therapies, Vipassana, Za Zen…

    Further more we are passionate about vegetarian, vegan & raw foods.

    The inspiration for the architecture of our Retreat we took from the Village Eski Karakaya which was built by the locals in 15th century to protect themselves from piracy at those times. Its hidden on the mountains of Karakaya viewing the Greek islands Kalimnos and Leros. We used wherever possible original, local and natural materials, such as stone for the walls of the houses, lime & sand as the mortar and the roofs are constructed out of a special local earth, wood, sea weed, local herbs, local bamboo and clay tiles.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Located in a beautiful fisherman town, but up in its rocky mountain, Karakaya is really on the other end of the sea from the beautiful Greek islands. It is very easy to travel from Bodrum to everywhere in the southern and Aegean coast of Turkey.
    As well as cultural heritage of the land and the variety of people who are circulating throughout the whole season, volunteers are always welcomed to join the offered daily meditations, some offered yoga classes, sometimes dances, evening events(if there is an event happening).

    If interested, they can explore a lot about the Anatolian, Mediterranean cuisine, gluten-free and vegetarian cooking. In short, they can explore a healthy living and self inquiry in the meantime.
