Reviews from our last mens retreats...

"It is said everyman has 2 lives, the moment he realises he has only one life to live the second life begins.The men's retreat here will honour you with time spent in a timeless way. You'll be introduced and given access to the tools of breath work that were once the preserve of mystics and yogis.This will help you dive into a meditative yet focused awareness that will draw you into ice water immersion as if it were rekindling a lost and almost forgotten kinship. You will share with other menStories of your life, a mountain hike, tips to grow with, insights and only feel supported.Foods of the rainbow that will nourish and delight you made with Love.The venue is world class and as such are the teachers and staff.The deep tissue massage I had by Becky was second to none. In particular the organiser and breathwork teacher Liam: you will never meet a kinder, more down to earth and hard working man who looks after everyone like family along with Niamh who is a spellbindingly accomplished teacher her myofascial yoga class is another game changer.Finally the head chef Gemma whose food was the healthiest and tastiest I have ever been privileged to experienced(she has written/co-authored a suryalila cookbook)This men's retreat didn't just meet my expectations it exceeded my imagination." - Waris Patel

"What memories are made of...Loved it! Every moment and every bit of it! The wonderful embrace of knowledgeable and openminded people, the serenity of the place, the laughter, the fine timeless moments by the campfire. The challenging exercises, helping me realise that I can do it and that the mind puts barriers where none exist.Liam is amazing and I highly recommend spending a week with him. As he said:"Everything is optional!"I would add: Time itself too! Time and ego dissolved as the spirit rose, the mind awakened and the body strengthened!Best 7 days I've spent in years!" - Krass

"I got home three days ago from Liam's retreat at Suryalila in the deep south of Spain and am still awash with the experience and energy of being with a band of random pilgrims revealing their strengths & vulnerabilities one by one.The location is at the crossroads of nowhere & now; a perfectly planned environment to relax & slide out of your comfort zone into Liam's program of breath awareness & brotherhood.This exotic oasis of Asian & Indian details set in the undulating dune-like hills of Andalucia vibrates with an irresistible tranquility & openness, which Liam transmits effortlessly with some hard work & lots of mirth."We're almost there" & "everything is optional" may not seem like profound mantras, but in the context of our experience, they will resonant for some time to come. Without a doubt I will return to the middle of nowhere & give Liam un abrazo muy fuerte!Muchas gracias hermano!!" - Brent MacKay
