The Vision

The building-up of a retreat place is a long-term activity. Right after the purchase took place a boom of activity has arisen, which made the organizing of courses and living in the place throughout the whole year possible, though in a bit more rough conditions at that time.

The reconstruction of the house is finishing at the moment. From the architectural view, the original look of the building was preserved, as well as the 1st floor room layout. There is now a large meditation room in the garret with a magnificent view on Poľana. Between the meditation sessions one can relax on a rather grand wooden terrace.

The Plan is

  • to finish the reconstruction of the house and the 100 square meters large meditation room (finished in 2009)
  • water cleaning system and sewage
  • to repair the barn (to replace the roof covering, tamp the walls, fix the gates and to mount new windows)
  • to build a farm building (storehouse, garage, workshop)
  • to repair former granary
  • to build a retreat house
  • to build a buddhist stupa on a hill above Mangútovo
