The Experience

We are a small meditation and retreat center located near Hamburg, Germany. The center is providing an environment to meditate, go inwards, calm down, and reconnect with oneself. It is a place of stillness and peace, and perfectly suited for experienced meditators who might enjoy the natural surrounding. We need your help with daily tasks like welcoming our guests, cleaning, housekeeping, some light gardening tasks, feeding the cats :)

It was completely amazing! Maria and Antje are fantastic hosts, they made me feel super comfortable.

The working hours and the work are really fair; the house is fantastic (especially the garden!); the food is always fresh and good; the guests are super friendly; the region is so beautiful with lakes and forests.

But more than that, having two meditations per day and an environment that helps you to think about what is really important in life, to stay in the present and to learn to listen to your heart is the thing that made this experience so special for me. Magical and life changing!

I cannot say enough about Little Paradise. This was my second time back and was even more magical than the first. The space is absolutely beautiful and Maria and Antia dedicate their lives to serving others, which is what makes the experience so authentic and genuine.

I highly recommend to anyone following a spiritual practice, to further yourself by volunteering in this space. It is magical and the hosts are wonderful.

Hostess Maria is always in a good mood and is very dynamic and loving to support the work! The Retreat is beautiful, very organized and also clean! The foods are delicious, healthy and fresh! I made new friends with guests and volunteers too! It is an excellent place to visit and reflect on your goals ... there are great books in the library and daily meditations help us understand our reasons for being there! The company of the 3 cats always does very good energy. Little Paradise Retreat will always be in my prayers.

At Little Paradise one can experience, how fine it is to be self, to express their needs, to speak the truth inside white out free, to be heard with patience. Everyone are willcome and accepted as they are, and can feels free to make a journey to ones deepest potentials.

Ones can feels here how easy it is to reconnect with the inner, the outer, the higher and deeper source trouhg intense meditation and retreat.

An the four cats, every once having it's own personality, are so amazing. They will reveal a lot about ourselves. It's great.

Thanks so much for the great experience. Best regards.
