The Elephants

MEDITATIVE PROGRAMS FOR YOU TO SPEND A TIME OF INTROSPECTION HERE AT THE FARM

Choose your program and contact us.

The Elephants invite you to come at any time, whenever you want.

The farm is 1 hour from San José and 30 minutes from Juan Santamaría International Airport; 4 kms. from the center of Atenas canton, in the tropical mountains west of the Central Valley. We are a quiet and private place to enjoy local life surrounded by mountains and a wonderful sunset view.

Our goal is to share through the following three elephants, a simple infrastructure based on the culture of meditation as a lifestyle.

ELEPHANT 1:
PERSONAL MEDITATION

In this program includes a meditation and ancient yoga class, every day that you stay with us (at 9:00AM) – Minimum two nights.

In addition, you are free to use the mini-meditation halls assigned to each room, at any time during your stay.

You can also take advantage and get to know the natural attractions of Atenas.

* Program open only when there are no retreats or ceremonies scheduled on the farm. Contact us to see calendar availability.

GENERAL NOTES FOR ALL PROGRAMS

– Please note that Finca Elefante is NOT a hotel; simply a meditation center that opens its doors to those who wish to spend a few days in a simple and quiet place while there are no scheduled activities. For this reason, we thank you for leaving the place clean and tidy when you leave.

– For the reason above, there could eventually be maintenance work on the farm such as harvesting crops, noise from lawn mowers in the morning, tree trimming, etc. (these activities are not carried out during retreats and ceremonies)

– Farm closes at 9:00PM every day; if you leave please come back before that time (more flexible hours to be arranged for meditative residents and volunteers)

– People are free to go out from the farm at any moment; of distributing their time as they wish during the stay.

– Please do not enter foods that contain red or white meat (dairy, eggs and gluten are allowed)

– No tobacco or alcohol, please.

– The programs are only for people over 21 years old (and 15 years is the minimum age if they come with their family) – No kids are allowed.

– Finca Elefante is a meditation center, not a therapy one. People suffering from depression, psychiatric/mental pathologies or addictions of any kind, please consider other options since the farm lacks the human, medical and technological resources to treat such situations.

– We offer an infrastructure for people to spend moments of introspection. For this reason, we request that you refrain from listening to music in the rooms, unless you have your own headphones so as not to disturb the tranquility of others.

– Part of the concept is to disconnect a bit from the usual routine, so we do not offer wifi, internet or television service.

– The meditative health proposal at Finca Elefante includes cold water baths; the rooms do not have hot water.

– Foreigners must have insurance, and a valid visa or residence ID.

– No pets allowed.
