Samata Holistic Retreat Center

Samata Holistic Centre is located 3km inland from Arambol, a village in the Northern most part of Goa near to the Maharashtra border. Arambol is an ideal starting position to discover the beauties of Goa. With nightly drumming sessions on its long beaches, a vibrant market, lots of international and Indian restaurants, and a large tourist crowd, Arambol allows you to quickly sample the colorful and eventful social fabric of Goa.

At the same time, tucked in the lush palm tree jungle away from partying tourists, nothing at Samata is reminiscent of the busy Goan life.

Meghan Currie:

When I teach I let go as much as possible so I may be an open channel for creative energy to pass through. Every student is everyone's teacher so I plug my heart into everyone and do my best to translate the teachings which present themselves in the moment. I believe it’s not all up to me. Like any recipe, there must be just the right amount of all the ingredients to produce epic flavor. When I teach I mix my given ingredients well with all other unpredictable and delicious ingredients to co-create with the playful universe and be a part of something grand. I never know what is going to happen. And if I attempt to know too much, something is lost. I love life and food in raw true form. Much fear has brought me to where I am, so I encourage all sides of everyone to be welcomed, honored and faced. For fears, if faced, are like really good manure for the soul. I am SO grateful to all my teachers, especially Steve Merkley, Paige Faraci, Chris Chavez, and everyone I have ever met…
