  • Description


    Centre of meditation, development and personal growth. We do our meditation and yoga retreats here and we also rent our space for other groups that do several activities related with personal growth and arts.

    This place is also a hostel and caravan parking for tourist people. We are in the nature, near of Cartagena city, in the south east coast of Spain. The nearest beach is 12 minutes from here by car.

    For those who are interested in a quiet place where you can cultivate inner peace and happiness, love and artistic creativity, this can be a great experience :-)

    My name is Ruben. I share my life with my son Leo and my soulmate Rocío (she is not Leo´s mum but all we love each other like a very united family). Rocío is a very special woman and Leo is an incredible child.

    All people speak about "be open minded". I share this opinion, and I really work for it, but the most important thing for me is to have an open heart. I open my mind to understand (and not to judge), and I open my heart to love (everything, everybody: not only few persons and my pets) ;-)

    This means that I try not to put walls between our hearts and do it as a way of life. This is my objective to be able to have a more real life. This also means that I would not try to destroy the walls that somebody could have (if they want to have it), but I would try not to put more.

    Of course, I also love having my privacy and sometimes I like to stay alone... or with my family, but it is different thing...

    I hope that you can understand me because English is not my language (and it´s difficult for me to listen and understand you if you speak english quickly, most of all).

    Rocío and I like to share this vision, to live in a different way, with more love and light, more peace and understanding.

    Rocío is in a very deep transformation process. She left a stable job in a conventional school, to be able to start new life. We are creating this project together. It would not be possible without her. We are not only a couple, but also we are partners in this great adventure.

    I work as relaxation, meditation and yoga instructor... However I am not my job, even my name, age, face or appearance... so you would have to know me, and know us, and feel our soul (we will do the same respect of you :-)

    I have other artistic activities, like play drums, guitar, sing, compose songs... And Rocío is learning several methods related with dance and also wants to be a yoga teacher. We would like to develop this activities, but in this moment we are spending most of our time creating this centre and developing our activities (retreats), and of course in my son and our life together.

    We love the nature and we think it´s a priviledge to live very close to the sea. This place is one of the best places to live in Europe and the world, we think :-)

    Love, peace, detachment and humor sense could be a summary of our lives.
