You can rent the entire Golden Garden or just a part of it The beauty and the strong energy forms a powerful basis to courses and retreats with elements of deepening consciousness and personal and spiritual development. Multiplicity is a key word. We see the garden as functioning on three aspects, often combined: The healing and contemplation of the retreat, presentation of insights and knowledge surrounding many aspects in the new era and finally the possibility to support the participants in exploring their creativity.
Book The Golden Garden By booking the entire garden you will have full access to all sleeping areas except for where the Caretaker stays. The Temple and the creative room is also fully available for teaching and retreats. Outside of the teaching time there should be open access to the temple. If you wish to book the entire garden you have to write us by using the contact form at the bottom of the page or click the 'Booking' bottom beneath. There is a maximum of 20 beds but we recommend to book for no more than 16 people to ensure the wellbeing and comfort of all.
Payment You will have to pay a deposit for 20% of the lease when you book the place. This will not be refunded if you wish to cancel the lease. Typically around two months before the start of your course we will reevaluate the situation. By that we mean that it will be possible to release beds/rooms for other purposes if your group will be smaller than planned. The deposit will be a part of the final payment. By renting the entire Golden Garden you will have to manage to get all payments from your course participants.
Membership The Golden Garden is for members only, because it is a non profit organisation (greek law). Anyone who wishes to spend the night at the Golden garden should therefore be a member. The cost is 20 euros for a one-year membership. The course participants can sign up for membership on the website. Using foreign payments will be cheaper if you pay the total amount together once you know all the names of your participants. You will then pay the whole amount and send us a list with all the participants names and email address.
Food for the course participants We are in contact with Marina, a greek woman, hoping to arrange for her to cook when wished for. There are also Tavernas (local restaurants) which deliver food and they can typically manage one meal pr. person pr. day. You are also very welcome to bring your own chef.
