La Casa de Loto is a Meditation and Yoga Retreat Center, high up in the magical Colombian mountains, founded and run by Pema Tsering. Here we offer you daily guided meditations, yoga classes, question and answer rounds, freshly cooked organic food, and a variety of optional massages and treatments. Our guests come here for many reasons, but they all amount to essentially the same thing — wanting a more easeful relationship with life. The place is surrounded by beautiful nature, and our experienced teachers and staff create the ideal conditions for you to turn inward, letting go, and to reconnect to the essence of life, where lasting happiness can be found. You find us only 1 hour away from Medellin City, and 40 minutes from its international airport MDE/JMC.
At the heart of all our programs are the Buddhist and Vedic practices of samatha meditation (calming the mind), vipassana meditation (insight into the nature of phenomena), yoga asanas (postures), and pranayama (breathing exercises). To support your stay and inner growth, we also imply a practice of noble silence for five days each week, which is essential for cultivating more awareness of who we really are. All doubts can be cleared up in our daily question and answer rounds, which take place after the guided meditation

Posted onAmazing experience! Thanks for everything :)What an amazing experience! I don't write a lot of reviews but this one was sitting on my to-do list for a while. I want to thank Pema, Lacey, and the rest of the staff for everything, including the beautiful vibe they managed to create for this place!
This was my first meditation retreat. I've been timidly meditating a bit for a while and reading about it, but I was still not sure about what to expect from a retreat like this. First, more practical things like quality of the accommodation, food, etc, were absolutely impeccable. In relation to my meditation practice, I feel like I really had a few important breakthroughs in this retreat. I attribute this to the readings I did while I was there (they have books you can borrow), to the guided meditation sessions and Q&A with Pema, and to the fact that it's simple hard to find the time and peace of mind to really meditate deeply in your daily life. Even better in a setting like this, surrounded by nature. Pema transpires such a beautiful tranquility. I really enjoyed his teachings and for sure his sense of humour too.
About the yoga part, I had had a not very good experience a few years ago with yoga and it was not something I was super interested in doing again very soon. Lacey proved me wrong :). She's an amazing teacher and the yoga sessions in the morning were a perfect start for the day.
In summary, I really enjoyed this experience and I feel like I made a lot of progress. I can't really compare this retreat to others since this was my first, but it was a damn good one! Thank you all! :)
Posted onAmazing experienceI was looking for a place to do a silent retreat and in La Casa de Loto I found exactly what I was looking for. A place with no gurus, and where everyone could do his or her own work with no rush, no pressure.
The house and the farm are amazing. Surrounded by a beautiful forest full of wildlife and beautiful trees and flowers. The house is comfortable, the rooms are big.
The food is amazing and Mery (the chef) is super nice and cooks amazing!
The massages are out of this world. Specially the Chinese massage.
Thanks Pema for providing a place where we can go and be silent, and in the silence find ourselves!!
