Retreats in Barcelona
We believe that retreats are paramount in order to delve deeper into self-knowledge.
We acknowledge that our day-to-day provides enough opportunities for us to carry out a thorough self-development work, however there are multiple distractions which may blind us and keep us from identifying and treating those tendencies which prevent happiness.
At Casa Virupa, you will find the ideal conditions for introspection. We are committed to offering you silence, harmony and an excellent accompaniment.
You will find here all the options we offer so that you may do a retreat. In case you cannot find what you are looking for, kindly contact us.

"Meditation is one of the rare occasions when we’re not doing anything. Otherwise, we’re always doing something, we’re always thinking something, we’re always occupied. We get lost in millions of obsessions and fixations. But by meditating – by not doing anything – all these fixations are revealed and our obsessions will naturally undo themselves like a snake uncoiling itself".

Integrate: retreat to
deepen in meditation
It's a perfect retreat for those people who have experience in meditation and for whom it is present in their day-to-day.
Given that this retreat is aimed at experienced meditators, we suggest few sessions with the teacher and more of individual practice, all in strict silence. You will be accompanied respectfully and discreetly, so that you may deepen in your practice without interference.
will you find
A first-hand experience of mental calmness, which will allow a direct connection with our mind and its egoistical mechanisms… but also with the seed of peace and compassion that sprouts from the mind.
"Meditation practice is based on dropping dualistic fixation, dropping the struggle of good against bad".
