LamRim Meditations

The lamrim, or “graduated path,” is a presentation of Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings that details the stages in the complete path to enlightenment. In the single-pointed Lamrim Meditation you focus your mind on one single object at a time, and like this walk through the various stages to liberation. Lama Zopa Rinpoche has recently given new advice suggesting that students follow a lamrim outline and meditate on each subject for two weeks or one month until all subjects have been completed. Rinpoche advised, “The amount of time for meditation is up to the individual, but the general advice is to finish the lamrim in one year,” Rinpoche said. Depending on the duration of your stay, we introduce you to various meditation techniques and teach you how to continue this beautiful path after you leave La Casa de Loto. 


Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing us for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. At La Casa de Loto we focus a lot on the breath, trying to create a flow of energy during the classes to help release mental and physical blockages. Yoga here is about the spiritual side of it more than the physical one. It is instructed mostly by Mauricio. He has been teaching yoga for over 15 years and previously lived in a solitary mountain retreat where he was dedicated to practicing for 10 years.


Noble Silence

Here at La Casa de Loto we strongly attach value to deep silence. This is very healing. We allow the silence and the calmness to penetrate our flesh and bones. We allow the energy of mindfulness to penetrate our body and mind. We walk, meditate, read, write, study, or do anything else that pleases you, in silence. All with pure awareness of just this one task. We breathe deeply and enjoy the stillness and the freshness. Let us not talk to the other guests, as they need our support too. We can stay alone outside with the trees, the river, the lake and the animals, go for walks, or use our rooms to relax.

Accommodation

For accommodation we offer a cabin with two private rooms and a dorm. The two private rooms share one bathroom. The dorm is shared with five other retreaters and has two bathrooms.

  • Private Room

    Private room - Suitable for couples, solo travelers
  • Dorm room

    Shared room - Suitable for couples, families, groups, solo travelers

Surroundings
