Nourish Yourself

Meals will be brought to your by Francisco Basílio.

Francisco's food aim is to nourish and ignite vitality, percieving nutrition holisticly, as everything you intake and considering different latitudes of food.

Mostly plant Based, although with no fundamentalisms, his kitchen is eco friendly and sustanable, respecting zero waste philosophy, concentrated on local, seasonal and fresh products, giving preference to what he calls nutraceuticals - low mass to a high concentration of nutrients, in order to promote energy instead of wasting it during its digestion.

Francisco follows Ayurvedic principles such as "we are not what we eat but what we diggest" and therefore promoting Agni - primordial fire; is a constant factor on his gastronomic line.

His cooking can also be described as international, inspired on different cultures and techniques, from Ayurvedic, Japan, midle east to a vegetarian re intrepertation of Portuguese gastronomy.

Francisco sees cooking as an act of love and promoting cosnciousness, being food, as well, a veichle for cultural wisdom, activism, medicine and Art.

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.

Sara Costa

Sara graduated in Physiotherapy in 2009, however from an early age she is aware that we are much more than a physical body. We are body, emotions, mind and spirit.

Eternally curious about herself and the world around her, she has always sought more knowledge (nutrition, epigenetics, personal development, emotional intelligence, chakras, reiki, multidimensional therapy, etc.) that allows her to help others in their process, which is where she feels more at home and in fulfillment of her greater purpose.

She's the author of a book, trainer, clinical pilates and global postural reeducation teacher (adapted to self done postures), and yoga practitioner. In this retreat you can find a mixture of all this so that through the body you can experience your multidimensional being.

Francisco Basilio, a Chef - a Gastronaut and a Surfer.

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.

Can’t miss a opportunity to have a chat with the goats pastor and check were are the best waves in the moment.

Always very respectful towards Ayurvedic medicine, practice the received ancestral knowledge through cooking and conversations.

After experiencing living in multiple parts of the world, now shares the love of living in his small farm with his wife, daughter and animals.

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