There are moments of happiness that are so powerful that it is almost embarrassing to talk about them – which is, of course, wrong, because you should always share your happiness! A stay at the one world foundation is one such moment. I have often asked myself what makes this place so special – well knowing that there is no clear answer, because the experience orchestrated by Kathrin Messner is made up of so many large and small things that combine into a Gesamtkunstwerk. I could mention a couple of examples. I could talk at length about the palm garden, which must have been the model on which the Garden of Eden was based; the most beautiful pool in the world (if you have children you’ll never get them out!); the wild monkeys and cool iguanas, the fascinating discussions with the host at the long table; the culinary delights created by Chamil and Wasantha; the wonderful people all around; and the roar of the sea on the tropical nights.
The one world foundation is a place that reminds you how good it is to be a sentient being on this beautiful planet.
