    The course was impeccably organised, great location and everything flowed smoothly. Kathy and her assistant Julie gave me, as I presume the other members of the course, every possible guideline, and support that was/is needed for my personal path towards an experienced Mindfulness teacher. I would definitely recommend it, as I consider the course a mind-opening, the learning experience of high quality. Including all of that... it was also the most enjoyable!! August 2017.

  • More information about the venue, the 4 star Hotel Tossa d' Altea

    The 4-star Hotel Tossal d’Altea is a 300-year-old Olive Mill with views to the mountains and sea, in the small Mediterranean resort of Altea. The lovingly restored historic building used to be a farm called  “Almàssera de Guillem” growing olives, almond and orange trees. If you intend to stay at the hotel, there are only 22 rooms so early booking through us is highly recommended. 

    Located just 500 meters from the picture postcard “Casco Antiguo” (old town) with its traditional whitewashed houses and cobbled streets, this small family-run hotel is located at the point where the Spanish countryside meets the town so we have the perfect spot for meditation and yet, we're an easy ten minutes walk to the 'old town' and 25 minutes walk to the beach.

    The 22 en-suite rooms are spacious and superbly equipped with double or twin beds, individually controlled hot/cold air-conditioning, mini-bar, TV, hair-dryer, safety deposit, WiFi, fresh towels & a daily maid service to freshen up your bathroom and make your bed. 

    There is a swimming pool and terrace in the garden together with shady spots to rest in, a spacious meditation studio with views to the mountains, a small gym & sauna and an on-site restaurant serving delicious Mediterranean dishes and can cater for dietary requirements.
