Accommodations & Fare


At Namaste Esperanza we believe in the power of the shared experience. Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Metal & Wood are the elements that come together to make up beautiful, well-appointed rooms at Namaste Esperanza.

Each room is infused with the energies of its element and is designed with comfort, convenience and community in mind.

Namaste Esperanza is a shared experience so each suite comfortably accommodates up to 6 people. Each of our rooms is furnished with well-spaced captain beds, individual lamps and an en-suite bathroom. Large windows look out upon the farm in all directions and allow you to enjoy a sunrise or sunset from the comfort of your own room.

Namaste Nova … A Shared Experience!

We call it the Container Principle. There are numerous contexts and explanations of the Container Principle, but our favourite interpretation most resembles that of the Shambala Buddhists:

“The container principle is the idea that the environment you establish or find yourself in informs your experience and can influence or even give rise to an outcome.”

Namaste Esperanza helps shape and inform personal experiences and assists in giving rise to miraculous outcomes.

At Namaste Esperanza we are all space holders. Our small staff is dedicated to our own evolution and healing, which enables us to better facilitate and assist the often colossal personal changes that our guests undergo.

This is a place where strangers come together with a common goal and are able to feel safe to share their most intimate selves with one another. We create a space of unconditional love, trust and community, which ultimately gives rise to profound shifts individually and within the group. As one shifts, so do the rest.

We have found that the emotional/spiritual container we provide expedites profound personal change in group members. When a person attends a course at Namaste, a quickening occurs. It’s not long before a deep well of trust is experienced which supports and assists in the releasing of all that is outdated, obstructive and ready to be shed. We call this space ‘heart space’.

Heart space is a space of love, compassion and understanding, a place in which it is safe to expose and transform—the perfect supportive environment for deep personal learning and inner growth. The sanctuary of heart space becomes that much more imperative for individuals involved in courses which call for self honesty and the courage to shine light on deep-seated belief systems and emotional patterns.

At Namaste, it is our honour to provide such a place of understanding and compassion, a place where people come together to unravel the mystery of themselves.

The Fare

Namaste Esperanza prides itself in offering freshly prepared, locally sourced home-cooked fare. Your course package includes three meals a day, which are served up to you hot and tempting.
