Would you like to enjoy a weekend of disconnection and contact with nature, while practicing the different activities that we do regularly at the centre?

Would you like to come and celebrate our first birthday with us?
Come and enjoy our first LOTUSRETREAT “5 SENSES”!

“Heal the soul through the senses and the senses through the soul!” Oscar Wilde


Treat yourself to a weekend away from the city, surrounded by nature and in a privileged environment. Disconnect from everyday life and get away from your routine. Immerse yourself in the different activities we propose, yoga, pilates, meditation, pranayama and other surprises. Enjoy healthy vegetarian meals to accompany the retreat. Enjoy the company of people with similar interests and likes.

The 5 senses


“Nature and books belong to the eyes that see them.”

(Ralph Waldo Emerson, American writer, philosopher and poet 1803-1882)

Let your eyes contemplate and admire the landscape that surrounds you. Mas Juli is a beautiful farmhouse with more than 450 years of history, located on a rural plot of 4,000 m² in Pineda de Mar, 50 km from Barcelona.

Mas Juli is the ideal place for our retreat. The farmhouse offers beautiful outdoor spaces: a green space where you can practice yoga, a relaxing pool area where you feel like you are in a small oasis and a spacious multipurpose room where you can practice our different activities. There is also a barrel sauna, located next to the pool.


“All smells, pleasant or not, are extraordinarily evocative of memories.”
(Primo Levi, writer, “Other people’s trades” 1919-1987)

Breathe in the natural fragrances that surround us at Mas Juli… we will take advantage of our free time to walk, observe, meditate and get to know each other a little better.

Smell the aromas of the meals that we will enjoy over the whole weekend… vegetarian dishes cooked with lots of love.

Lavender, mint, lemon… Smell the essential oils we will bring. Enjoy the essential oils workshop to discover the oils that we use at our centre and other new scents. Discover the benefits they bring and the different ways to use them.

Inhale and exhale deeply… and take with you the memory of all the good smells and sensations of our Lotusretreat.


“Just as the eyes are trained for astronomy, the ears are trained to perceive the movements of harmony.”

(Plato, Greek philosopher, 427 B.C. – 347 B.C.)

During the Lotusretreat weekend, you will find many moments where you can enjoy the silence, and others where you can have fun listening to music in a group… we will live in harmony between silence and music.


Listen to the beauty of silence while practising meditation… every day we will meet for a guided meditation practice, but we will also enjoy a space for silence.

At the same time, moments of musical joy await you, which will give you positive energy and vitality: we will practice chanting mantras, kirtan and other surprises that will be revealed over the weekend.


“I am not what I am, I am what I do with my hands”

(Louise Bourgeois, artist, Paris 1911 – New York 2010).

We invite you to try the benefits of Raindrop massage with essential oils. The Raindrop technique is a unique relaxation method that combines the application of a specific sequence of essential oils of the highest quality, totally free of toxins, combined with the “effleurage” technique of the American tribes of the Dakota, to holistically promote well-being.


“A taste for the days can only be discovered when it escapes the obligation to possess a destiny”

Emil Cioran, writer and philosopher, “All gall is divided”, 1952)

Enjoy the flavours of vegetarian food prepared especially for you. A varied and healthy vegetarian diet is included, as well as mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks, accompanied by fruit and tea.

Enjoy the cocoa ceremony, taste and experience its healing and vibrant effects. The cocoa contains pure chocolate with a balance of components that stimulate the union of the spirit and vibrations with the heart, and allows you to harmonise emotionally and spiritually, in a special and loving way in each of us.

In addition, there is an organic garden where you can pick seasonal food, and unique gastronomic experiences for body and soul are offered.
