Retreats – Workshops – Private Sessions
L’Għarix (La Reesh) means sanctuary in Maltese and is built a hundred metres behind the Ġgantija temples which are recognised by UNESCO as the oldest freestanding buildings in the world. They are over 7,500 years old, older than Stonehenge and the pyramids in Egypt. L’Għarix is said to have been built on a womb temple, and is more than 750 years old.
L’Għarix’s large, private cave is older than the temples themselves, and is a place of natural healing energy. In ancient times the temples and caves were used by the goddesses and priestesses and the art of connecting to nature with ceremonies and rituals were a part of daily life.
In addition to the cave sessions, one-on-one sessions are held in the private studio inside the villa. Retreat guests can also make use of the stunning outdoor pool area and indoor relaxation areas when not in private or group sessions.
Gozo is one of 21 islands that make up the Maltese archipelago. Inhabited for thousands of years, it shows evidence of historic immigration and rule by the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Sicilians, French and British, among others. It’s known for its Neolithic Ġgantija Temple ruins, rural hiking paths, beaches and scuba-diving sites.
Picturesque ix-Xagħra has a particularly rich historical heritage with many historical sites, several museums, beaches, hiking trails, shopping, ocean excursions and more.
