History and creation:

This property was bought in 2008 by Open Dharma facilitators Gemma Polo and Jaya Ashmore, an international network which offers meditations retreats around the world since 1999.

Under the name of 'Dharmaloca' (located in the 'Cavaloca' valley of Cabaces), the vision for this property was to create and run a small retreat centre based on the deep belief in wild nature as a healing and transformative place for humans.

For the past 10 years, it has offered retreats for both individuals and groups who travel here from different parts of the world.

For more information, please visit the owners own website.

'Awakening with horses' project:

The sale of this property also includes the possibility of taking on a small herd of four wild mares that live in a nearby area of around 20 hectares, as part of a project run in conjunction with the Montsant nature preserve, to clear underbrush to prevent forest fires and protect biodiversity.

These horses have been part of the Dharmaloca project, and their presence can be included in meditation retreats, group workshops and individual sessions. For more information view this site.

Why are we selling? :

The two owners are now taking separate paths and are attending new projects, and the family needs have changed.
