Samadhi is a Sanskrit term that refers to a higher level of concentrated meditation resulting in a state of bliss. It comes from “sam” meaning together or integrated, “a” meaning towards, and “dhi” meaning to get, to hold. Thus, to obtain a state of Samadhi one may transcend to acquiring integration, wholeness, or truth. We feel this consummately describes the essence one captures while immersed in the sanctuary of the Samadhi Retreat.
The Samadhi Retreat is a one bedroom, two storey cottage, with ocean views, which is ideal for a romantic getaway, thus, we refer to it as our “honeymoon” retreat. The main floor features a compact kitchen with dining table, bathroom with rain shower and a small living space with television and DVD player. The timber staircase winds upwards towards Samadhi’s ocean-view bedroom with Queen-size bed. The bedroom opens up to a wooden deck, with a lounge chair for sunbathing, and a romantic outdoor balinese bath. Drift off to sleep by the sounds of the sea…
Experience the stunning front deck with ocean views, complete with an outdoor barbecue and dining area, an outdoor jacuzzi and day-bed. Spend your morning with someone special relaxing on the daybed or basking in the sun. Samadhi’s charms however are not simply befitting for couples exclusively. With an outdoor dining table that seats eight, why not invite friends old or new around for an outdoor barbeque?
For one to attain an elevated level of consciousness that is Samadhi, years of practice and study is required. Why not fast track your journey at Shambhala @ Byron? Samadhi is truly paradise on earth.
