Casa Tara Retreat, Home of Nomad Kitesurf
Born with the profound desire to provide a caring, stress-free environment for all their guests… Like a safe haven created for people who just want to relax and refill their bodies with positive energy. It is located at El Teso, a little neighbourhood of El Sargento, right after you leave La Ventana while heading north.
A little history
The word 'Tara', also know as 'Tarini' is perceived as the "mother of all buddhas", “the one who enables living beings to cross the oceans of existence and suffering”. In many contemporary Indian languages, the word 'tara' also means star. A perpetually self-combusting thing, energising all of life.
Buddhists believe that She is the one who created 1st Seed from which the entire universe took birth in the form of Lord Narayana.
It is her compassion for living beings and her desire to save them from suffering, that makes her protective of them like a mother is of her children.
