DAY OF SUN AND MOON - I am, I feel. Connecting with your essence and purpose. The inner compass and intuition


DAY OF SATURN AND JUPITER - The path from challenges to mastery and expansion. Removing old limiting beliefs and installing

new empowering ones, amplifying your manifestation and co-creation abilities


DAY OF VENUS AND MARS - Exploring how we love and act. The balance between feminine and masculine energy for more

harmonious relationships.


DAY OF MERCURY AND TRANSPERSONAL PLANETS (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) - Authentic expression of being. The union of

the heart and mind to magnify your deep infinite power. Integration with the divine: and how we can bring our otherworldly gifts

onto this Earth

Come and mirror the macrocosmic universe in the microcosmic architecture of your own body. The expression, “As above — So

below. As within — So without” is not an intellectual or spiritual abstraction, but rather a literal, kinesthetic, organic reality. Hence it

is said in the Vishva-Sara Tantra: “What is here is elsewhere, what is not here is nowhere.”

On this Retreat you can connect, cultivate, and commune with the living essences of the planets within you, for deep

transformation and empowerment, in one of the most powerful environments considered by National Geographic as a hidden jewel

of the world (Pico island in Azores).

Isabel Borges

Woman, Daughter, Human, Nature. Always connected to nature, plants and the sacredness of the animals. The heart has always shown me the path of Service in healing, in emotions, in human transformation. I believe in the transmutation of pain into love and in the magical ability we have to self-heal and die to be reborn. Through self-care, internal commitment and connection with the divine that dwells within us. I have been working as a Psychologist since 2011 and my personal and professional path led me to awakening. I immersed myself in the sacred feminine, in the power of meditation, in the understanding of energy and in coherence for the rescue of our essence. 

Shamanism lives in my heart and in my body, and so I am a pilgrim on the path of truth and beauty. I am a spiritual therapist and facilitate circles; retreats; support women in their healing through natural gynecology. I work with medicinal plants and live the permaculture of the earth and the soul. Committed to the forgiveness and union of the masculine and feminine, to anchor the New Earth.

In the Unit I AM, WE ARE.

Chef Francisco Basilio

Francisco Basilio was born in Portugal, Lisbon, and started studying psychology after high school, but soon realised that transforming reading nature into food cook was his thing, as it would place him between men and nature, being able to create synergy, balance and art and understanding agriculture, chemistry, and health. Soon he starts to travel around the world learning new cultures, gastronomic landscapes and techniques. At the age of 25 he travelled to India by mistake, or happy incident, and got acquainted with Indian Cuisine and Ayurvedic medicine.

Being able to be our own doctor and achieve that with the power of food was just amazing, in his opinion. And transforming the kitchen in a pharmacy was set as the new goal for the traveller chef. A trip that was supposed to last 1 month and half turned into a long journey of 7 months. He closed his restaurant (Big Blue, Sesimbra Marina, Portugal) and shifted his kitchen pantry.

Mixing together Psychology, Gastronomy and this beautiful ancient holistic medicine seemed to him a perfect triangle to change his path and position towards food. After all, the rhythm, ego war and the fever of Michelin stars were not satisfying him the most, and it made more sense for him to think about healthy or nourishment stars and help people (and himself!) making the right choices and cook them by themselves. This process’s one of the most therapeutic since it brings men to earth, to grow, collect, transform and offer goods and food to others. Cooking our own food grows consciousness and, in the end, we can make healthy, freaking pretty, delicious and Gourmet.

Question is, modern nutrition shows statistically, what’s good and bad. Ok… So, why then does everyone keeps on doing same mistakes?

Using Ayurveda´s holistic matrix and separating primary food from secondary food (being the primary food the relationships we have, the attitude in life, our partners, our sexual partners, our sleep, our spiritual development and activities, physical activities, emotions, basically, and, secondary: food, the food itself, it’s proved that if primary food is on its best, intuition grows, the body intellect gets accurate and smart choices take place, intuitively, don’t giving way for mind cravings and emotional hunger.

Ayurveda helps understanding cosmos and create consciousness for a great marriage between the microcosms (our physical body) and macrocosms (the environment where we live) - leading to health maintenance; for a balanced, peace-full, mindful and nourished life.

Good Food Good Mood

Nowadays, Francisco divides his time in between learning and teaching Ayurveda, community projects with schools and WHO (World Health Organization) developing social reintegration and psycho-physical rehabilitation.

Cooking is an act of Love, bringing together people realities – culture, health and Art/creativity as a form of (self)healing.
