Center Rules

The place we call the Hermitage Center; It is a "home" in which one can turn to one's essence, get rid of the illusions created by social life and the material lifestyle, and get rid of everything that distracts the person and prevents him from being "me". According to the yogi understanding, social life is an order that causes people to form uncontrolled thought patterns and drags the person to a shallow, taught and sometimes meaningless life.


With the inspiration of being surrounded by people with awareness and space created to be oneself in the Retreat Center, “Who am I? What is my purpose of existence? What do I want? Why do I want it?" He finds the opportunity to ask questions that will enable him to know himself and work on it. Kioo Retreat Center has been designed in a way that will remove the inertia created by comfort, but at the same time offer the necessary comfort for practice.
