Tailored programs for stays ranging from 3 to 14 days
at Narbuli Retreat House
The purpose of the retreat…
…is to provide a space for self-reflection and personal growth.
To achieve this goal, Narbuli helps you:
- disconnect from your usual tasks, routines, and schedules, allowing you to fully retreat from the world and focus on yourself.
- find peace and quiet in order to relax your body and listen to your inner self.
- rejuvenate through the restorative effects of nature, fresh air, deep sleep, and leisurely walks.
- personalize your experience with archetypical rooms and specially tailored practices.
How our self-guided retreat works:
We’ll begin with a 30-50 minute interview where we’ll discuss your current challenges and priorities in order to determine which archetypal room would be best suited for you.
When you arrive, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive guide to exercises and practices for self-work. Some of these practices are accompanied by an audio guide.
During your retreat, you’ll have plenty of free time to do your selected practices as well as engage in leisure activities such as walking, reading, swimming, cycling, or simply relaxing.
For those who are interested, you’ll have the opportunity to schedule intensive personal sessions with our team of specialists via video call.
At the end of your retreat, you’ll have another interview with the same specialist to discuss your results and how you can integrate them into your daily life.
How the archetypal space
can affect you
Narbuli Retreat House offers nine rooms, each uniquely designed to embody one of eight Jungian archetypes. By balancing these archetypes in your life, you can expand your own possibilities, find fulfillment, and make better decisions. Each room has a distinct ambiance that elicits a specific emotional response and immerses you in the energy of a particular archetype. This enables you to tap into the archetype’s energy and gain a deeper understanding of yourself.

To enhance your retreat experience, we offer individual support upon request. You will have the opportunity to work with a specialist from Narbuli Retreat House for one hour daily via Zoom. The specialist will utilize various psychosynthetic methods and coaching to help you maximize the benefits of your retreat.
Silence and solitude
For adults living in modern society, taking a break to detoxify your body and mind is essential. A few days spent in silence, sleeping in complete darkness with the help of blackout curtains to block out the morning sun, and waking up naturally without an alarm clock can have significant benefits.
Retreat House Narbuli offers all of this, along with a unique blend of relaxation, urban comfort, and hedonism. Guests can enjoy gatherings by the fireplace, take a sauna, or even skinny dip in the lake during the summer. The importance of spending time in solitude for busy people cannot be overstated and there are numerous studies showing its integral importance for mental health.

Frequently Asked Questions
Latvia has very changeable weather, so even if you are coming in the summer, it’s a good idea to bring something warm (a sweater, fleece, or hoodie) and windproof.
Bring comfortable sportswear that you can move around in. You don’t need to bring yoga mats or cushions as we have plenty of those in the yoga and meditation hall.
There are many hiking and cycling trails around Narbuli Retreat House, so bring clothes and shoes for outdoor activities. If you want to go fishing, bring your own fishing gear. Fishing with a rod in Latvia doesn’t require a license, and there is an ideal lake right outside where you can fish and swim. The village and landscape allow for nude swimming, but if that’s not for you, bring swimwear.
If you want to come with your partner and stay together, we will place you in the Lover Room with a double bed, and the entire basement floor with a sauna and fireplace will be at your disposal. Moreover, we offer special practices to help develop and strengthen your relationship.
If you want to come with a friend, you will be staying in different archetypical rooms, each suited to your individual needs. You will spend some time in solitude and engage in individual practices.
If you want to come with a business partner, it may be useful for you to stay in the Magician Room, where you can privately discuss business matters (this room has two beds, each measuring 120 x 200cm).
We can organize one for you at an additional cost if needed.
You will be given a set of towels, and liquid soap is available in the bathrooms. Sauna sheets are in the anteroom. If you forget your toothbrush or shampoo, we’ve got you covered 🙂
