(EDIT: This retreat centre is now closed. I will post if there will be more events in Scotland organized by the same group). I haven’t been on many spiritual retreats, but each time I attended I always gained a great deal of learning. Mostly this learning is related to knowledge of some of my psychological processes and subconscious states. In general, spiritual retreats are a great way to meet like minded people, start new friendships, get practical insights on practices such as astral projection, meditation etc., and most importantly to gain knowledge about oneself.
Esoteric retreat centre in Scotland is located in Edinburgh’s country side. I have been there around a year ago and have received many benefits by making that journey to Scotland. The centre is located in an old castle which is being transformed into truly sacred place. There are several rooms dedicated to practices, with the main one on the ground level. A lounge room has a fireplace, and a very nice view on the garden.
It feels like each of those rooms and passageways are charged with superior type of energy. I remember on the first night when we did an astral practice I felt genuine happiness due to high energy of that room. The main meditation room is particularly uplifting room which I find can be of a great help to achieve mystical and meditational states of consciousness. Inspiring spiritual art and nice incense scents are also a big part of the centre.
As the centre is located in the countryside there is a lot of natural areas where retreat attendees can go for walks or just sit outside and enjoy the present moment. Lounge room is a great place to relax, to read some spiritual text or to have some nice dialogues. Overall this description does not do it justice because the retreat centre is a place that can only be properly valued when personally experienced. It’s a spiritual sanctuary that can give strength, learning, understanding and mystical experiences to everyone searching for spiritual change.
Retreats are being held there almost every month. They are free of charge – including food and accommodation. Donations are welcome so that many more people can experience the value of such retreats.
