The 'Little Way' was written in 1997 in an attempt to express the original vision of Temenos.

THE LITTLE WAY
Welcome to our garden where the gentle spirit of acceptance pervades, where we come to honour who we are and celebrate our differences.

At Temenos we acknowledge spirituality rooted in the sacredness of our being, and respect and honour all forms of life as God-given and God-infused.

We believe that guests and staff at Temenos do not necessarily need to adhere to a set of spiritual rules, but that our spirituality may be expressed in our own unique ways. Temenos is a sacred space where all are welcome.

Temenos is precious to us for its respect for the dignity of personhood.
At Temenos we honour and celebrate the seasons of nature and of the heart. As a sacred space Temenos is a deeply intimate invitation to healing and wellness.

Ours is a world of infinite possibilities where we are a part of a meaningful unfolding. We trust that in our commitment to this unfolding we open ourselves to synchronicity and the miraculous. Therefore our focus becomes an attempt to shift from a world seen in concrete terms (having and doing) to a world primarily made up of relationships (being)

We support and nurture the gift of silence for in silence we begin to know ourselves and rediscover our deepest longings.

We believe that the Beloved comes to us by way of everyone who enters the garden and especially by way of the poor in body and spirit, the broken, the rejected and the powerless. Our response to this makes us signs of the Beloved’s tenderness in our own lives and the lives of those we encounter. Our continuing little steps towards tolerance acceptance and unity are important.

We invite you to embrace this little way, a gentle option.

Tenemos is a tranquil oasis. A little slice of paradise away from it all.
My “cottage” was clean and comfortable. I felt safe and relaxed and did a lot of sleeping, drifting off to the sounds of peacocks. It was incredibly hot so I didn’t do much but I was enough to restore my energy and help me recover from illness. I shall definitely return and look forward to doing enjoying treatments on offer..The food at the restaurant was delicious and I highly recommend Tenemos. It really is heaven on earth. Friendly staff too.

Superb. 5 out of 5

We four of us (3 ladies and me ) enjoyed our stay (3 nights) in separate rooms immensely and all four of us received a different inspiration from our stay and the garden at the Retreat.
Some greater than others but we all received something. It was great !

BUT please put a shelf, a chair and /or a small table in each of the bathrooms. We all found it difficult to put our towels / clothes on something.
The ladies also complained that there was no facility to put their make up on.

However generally it was a great visit !

Thank you very much.

Peaceful & quiet town set among beautiful scenery! Best for weekend visits! Tabaldi's restaurant at Temenos Retreat is a must for delicious food and fine dining.

McGregor is very very quiet midweek, would like to visit again at the weekend to see if it comes alive.

Enough good food and wine to enjoy without being commercialized and touristy. Enjoyed the countryside and being “away from it all”.
