What does the name Gekko Retreats mean?

Why Gekko? Gekkos or salamanders are considered animals of good luck, regeneration and abundance in South East Asia. To have a gekko or a tokke on a house or in the garden is considered very auspicious. Besides eating away mosquitoes and flies and other bugs, gekkos protect your dreams and are considered a blessing.

Just as the very purpose of our retreats, gekko symbolizes the powerful cycles of life that allow change, rebirth and metamorphosis leading to a constant process of renewal. People also refer to gekkos wonderful guidance in a transition involving a process of awakening to higher understanding, freedom and fulfillment. For our retreats,workshops and trainers Gekko is a symbol of quality.
