We run our courses at Bodhin's small, family run Holistic retreat centre located in the south east of Spain, in the mountains behind Javea and Denía, (the Costa Blanca) midway between Valencia and Alicante. The retreat is located on terraced land surrounded by cherry and almond trees with amazing views of the sea some 20km away. Perfect for our courses.
