cottage 18: Vira
Vira offers a cozy and bright retreat space for one person, with two separate structures conveniently located in the central retreat valley.
A few cottages are in view, perfect for those that prefer a sense of community and support during retreat. Even so, the straw-bale meditation and sleeping space is comfortably insulated from the outside world, with a small shady screened-in porch facing the mountains to the east.
The bedroom is specifically designed without electrical wiring to provide a deeply peaceful experience; portable solar lamps provide evening light.
A second building, of well-crafted wood framing, contains the kitchen and bathroom with plenty of shelving, DC electricity, and everything within reach. This space is smaller than other cottages, and so is not recommended for those who have expansive movement practices.
