A holistic and conscious experience using experiential writing, systemic constellations and other practices (such as meditation, mindful walks in nature, conversations about ancient wisdom texts including the Iching, Tao Te Ching, the Upanishads, the Gospels, the poetry of Rumi and other sages) to explore stories that live within you that deserve to be rescued, in order to release your potential and return to the Integral Creative Life and the True Self.

In this 5-day retreat, which integrates the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions, you will be able to take a wonderful journey of self-discovery, finding your unique voice and purpose.

Writing through this holistic perspective provides healing, personal and spiritual development, and deeper soul contact.

Imagine falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and starting your day with a sunrise walk. Imagine that your senses are alive with the breathtaking scenery, sounds and smells of the forest and the ocean. Your mind is awake and clear. Imagine the joy of a deep creative connection. Imagine releasing whatever may be between you and your dreams through a constellation. Imagine being able to embody all the riches that are dormant within you through expressive therapies. Imagine bringing your creative potential and unique voice to writing. Imagine feeling great inner peace through meditation and deep connection with yourself. All this in a place that seems to have come out of a literary tale and a chef preparing healthy homemade food especially for you.

Monday - METAL

With the metal element, we are invited to release everything that is already worn out, and to recognize what enriches our lives. As man can only truly experience what he deeply believes he can experience, here we open doors to the flights of imagination and crystalline and transcendent vision.

Tuesday - TREE

With the tree we explore our ancestors, our family constellations and expand into the great family of humanity.

Wednesday - EARTH

We explore our Self, the larger sense of our Self, our home as planet Earth, our place in the world, our purpose. We explore our quest for greater meaning (earth-sky connection).

Thursday - WATER

We explore the river of our lives so far... mapping its key points. We explore life as a flow and recognize our places of still water, deserts, oceans, rivers, lakes... and how to water what needs to be watered and how to set important areas in motion.

Friday - FIRE

We explore the path of the heart, the movement towards the future; we explore the dream enveloped by a cosmic understanding of one's life journey. The dharma.

Nourish Yourself

Meals will be brought to you by Francisco Basílio.

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

Mostly plant Based, although with no fundamentalisms, his kitchen is eco-friendly and sustainable, 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 digest" 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, middle east to a vegetarian re interpretation of Portuguese gastronomy.

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

Ana Franco - Family Constellations

I am a mother of 3 children and in this daily adventure of constant learning and shared growth I realized that to have authentic and happy children I would have to be the best version of myself. We educate by example and so it all starts with us and our personal and family experiences.

Academic training was not enough for all the answers to the challenges that parenting posed me, which made me dedicate myself to intense study in the area of education with the intention of finding more conscious answers. So I started a path of self-knowledge and personal development with several interdisciplinary approaches.

I believe that Love is the basis of life and that it is the hidden dynamics of unconscious loyalties that influence our lives and that are at the origin of the emotional blocks that limit us and keep us from balance.

I share knowledge through self-awareness and personal development trainings with the purpose of transforming our childhood experiences, giving new meaning to adult life and enhancing personal, parenting skills and educational tools.

As a facilitator of Family Constellations, promoting the acquisition of resources for personal, family and educational development through a systemic vision and awareness, integrating the Systemic Coaching system, NLP behavioral tools and emotional management.

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.
