What You'll Experience

Level 4 includes skill-building in advanced cueing, theming, marketing, and business development, and also takes a dive into the philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita. In addition to building their skills in teaching presence, assists, and demonstrations, students will receive the hands-on feedback for their own practice that is only possible in-person.

The Venue

House of Light Resort Photo

The House of Light Retreat Centre is a tranquil sanctuary set among the stunning natural backdrop of La Alpujarra in Southern Spain. This location has a special, vibrant energy that has long attracted spiritual travellers and those on soul-led well-being journeys.

House of Light Terrace

House of Light is, energetically, such a special place to do personal transformation and body work while feeling close to and connected with nature. The magical property and land, from where you can view both the mountains and ocean, is beautiful and inspiring, as well as incredibly nurturing. Its diverse and distinctive spaces have been intricately and lovingly designed to give individuals the opportunity to connect with nature, open up, drop into vulnerability and connect quickly and deeply with one’s self.

Food

House of Light Cuisine

Nourishment and nurturing is a big part of what we offer at House of Light. While inviting people to ‘come home to themselves’ and partake in personal, often transformational work, we have excellent chefs to design and provide delicious vegetarian menus to suit your group.

House of Light Cuisine

Led by co-founder Ceri, a very talented and passionate team of chefs will tantalise your taste buds and nourish your body with our clean, nutritious and exciting cuisine. All ingredients for our vegetarian, vegan and raw food meals are either grown in our gardens or carefully sourced from local farmers. Our menus are designed to feed both body and soul, using fresh ingredients and organic whole foods prepared with love and consciousness. All dietary requirements can be catered for.

Accommodations

Alma Room

All of the rooms at House of Light have been decorated with a care and love and have their own individual charm, colour and feel. Ranging from our wonderful, traditional yurts to our deluxe, fully ensuite, Moroccan inspired rooms, we have inviting, calm spaces designed to both inspire and relax. Each room can accommodate a double bed or two twin beds and come with bedding and towels. All rooms in the main house have underfloor heating and the yurts, their own individual heaters, to keep them cosy in the winter.

Covid-19 Policy

In Spain, the vaccine is voluntary and the highest court in Andalusia legally declared that it would be unconstitutional to introduce a vaccine passport. On this basis, we will not be asking for proof of vaccination.  

However, a negative test is now generally required for travel so we will require that everyone arrives with a negative test having been taken within 48 hours.
