Lake Isle Retreats is a business which began to take shape when Tim lived on Inish Rath Island in the Krishna temple during the 1990s. Providing a rejuvenating space for people to "get away" and recharge was something he wanted to help share with people. Later Yen, Fiona, Sukhada, Carmen, Chrissie, Frances, Padma, Lucy and Evangeline came to help.

For 7 years, we operated out of Inish Rath Island. The 1840's Victorian Country House there requires some investment for the comfort of guests, so from 2012 to 2021 we were at one lakeside house, and from 2022 at Shambala - all within 200 metres of each other. This allows us to facilitate retreats all year, and visit the island temple as we like. We are located at Upper L. Erne, County Fermanagh - just over 80 miles or 130kms from both Dublin and Belfast.
