I initially came to The Sanctuary for three days, however within a short time, I knew I wanted to be there longer and committed to a full month. I instantly felt welcome here and quickly began to feel the effects of a nurturing, healing and supportive environment. I found the other people at The Sanctuary to be very non-judgemental and found the space to fully be myself. This of course brought its ups and downs emotionally and spiritually, however I knew that this was all part of an important self healing process that was being accelerated and facilitated by the energy of The Sanctuary. I was not the only one finding transformation, there was plenty of time for interaction, and it was apparent were all experiencing profound energy shifts and emotional development and spiritual awareness. On a practical level I like the range of activities offered at The Sanctuary which are included in the price of the stay, as well as the opportunity to participate and in a work exchange programme, which adds to the sense of community and reduces the cost. I have made some great contacts from various parts of the world and am truely grateful for my experience in this beautiful environment.

The Sanctuary is a place that aims to promote a Yoga Lifestyle based teachings. They do not force anything on you, you join when you want with no pressure. Personally I found it very refreshing and useful. Peter and team allow you to tap into a Lifestyle of vegan, community, reflexion, meditation, yoga and so on. At the end you can take back home exactly what you want. The Sanctuary surpassed my expectations, and left with a very positive experience

LOVE is the one constant at the Sanctuary. I come here to heal mentally and physically, go inward, and empty the mind. At the Sanctuary, I’m able to remember myself as a soul of love and light.

The aspect of The Sanctuary we enjoyed the most were the people - the volunteers, SEVA guests, and the guests themselves...We had a great experience, we learnt a lot about ourselves as individuals and as a couple, and would recommend the Sanctuary to others.

Beautiful place, friendly people from all over the world, meditation, yoga, Tibetan singing bowls (my favorite), raw vegan food, pretty gardens, close to the beach, and silence in the home for much of the time. Pete, the host, is a wonderful person.
