A retreat that combines surfing and meditation in Gurubebila in southern Sri Lanka.


In short, this is a retreat where we will surf along Sri Lanka’s beaches, practice yoga and train our minds to be more present through meditation. Can it get any better?

Meditation - During the week we will learn to be more present through meditation exercises. Josefin Dahlberg and Axel Wennhall will supervise you during the week, and they will both be available for anyone who has never tried meditation before. We will practice mindfulness and various types of meditation including shaking, mantra and breathing exercises. In short - you will experience a lot of wonderful meditations, that will help you to be your true self and stay more present both during the retreat and when you return home.

Nature - The small village of Gurubebila lies adjacent to Weligama on Sri Lanka’s south coast. A stone’s throw from our accommodation sits one of the village’s charming beaches and one of the coast’s many surf breaks. The nature of Sri Lanka combines rich vegetation with white beaches and turquoise water.

Adventure - The coast offers excellent surfing for all levels, from beginner to expert. In Weligama which lies 5 minutes away by Tuk Tuk, you will find one of the world’s best beginner surf breaks where those who want to learn how to surf will be placed. The rest of the coast offers a varied surf for the more experienced surfers and the gang at Jamu Surf will be able to provide you with tips on how to find the best spots.
