After a long and intense search, we have finally found a wonderful property in the south of Sri Lanka that meets our high demands. It is a little tea island, rising amid rice fields, that fulfils all our criteria. Located only around ten kilometers from the most breathtakingly beautiful beaches of the island, this place offers a unique kind of retreat.
Our vision is to build a retreat center that is open to all types of art (martial art, qigong, t’ai chi, yoga, meditation, dance, painting, writing, and so forth). We want to create a place of strength, calm and inspiration, and combine it with the amenities of the modern world!
The plan is to provide accommodation for approx. twenty people (ten small lodges), two training rooms for individual use, a main building with a restaurant inside (Asian temple cuisine), a small shop, a library, a swimming pool and various pavilions (tea room, massage parlor, relax lounge, and so forth).
Our idea is that teachers and artists from all over the world, along with their students, can rent the place for a minimum of one week at a time. This means that an individual group can enjoy the entire retreat center for exclusive use throughout their stay.
However, in addition to group bookings, there will also be specific time slots available for individuals that seek to take a break at our retreat center (the required minimum stay being one week).
We will launch a separate website for the project WULIN retreat center: www.wulinretreatcenter.com. Make sure to drop by so we can keep you in the loop.
We are delighted to be welcoming you soon!
