Revealing the real
This room is perfect for those who always approach things in a very serious and rational manner. It caters to people who measure twice before cutting once, who carefully weigh each and every word before speaking.
About the room
The attic is like a circus tent, with a bathtub right under the window, a toilet, and a sink on a barrel. The bed is made up of a pile of mattresses, and an old suitcase serves as a dresser and table. Everything is a little strange and surprising. Please note that this room may not be suitable for guests over 175cm tall.
Staying in this room and doing its practices will help you become more carefree and willing to try silly things. It will encourage you to take part in the small things that make life fun.
Please note that only one other person can be in the house with you at the same time, on a different floor.

Jester archetype description
The Jester, first and foremost, is self-deprecating and doesn’t take himself too seriously. He’s neither attached to a feeling of self-importance nor the trappings of status and he is never particularly concerned with the opinions of others. The wisdom of the Jester lies in his ability to see life’s paradoxes, highlight them, and encourage those around him to see things from a new perspective or even to re-examine what they take for granted. The Jester believes that it is crucial to live in the present moment and experience both true sorrow and real joy in order to understand happiness.
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.
