We are situated in the heart of the Douro Valley; an area of outstanding natural beauty, easily reachable by car or train from Porto Airport. Our humble rustic house is cozy and has stunning views into the Douro Valley. It is located only minutes away from the Douro river and all of its leisure activities and beauty spots. On the property we have many different spots to hang out. We have woods, a garden, a terrace with view into the valley and an orchard. The grounds have 40 fruit trees including figs, oranges, lemons, pears, apples, olives, plums, pomegranate, peaches, persimmons, chestnut, passion fruit, etcetera. The property is a perfect place relax, recharge and do some inner reflecting during one of our retreats. Check out our blog to read more about the setting of our ceremonies.

Our ceremonies are conducted with one key factor in mind: Safety. Not just physical safety, but also mental, emotional and spiritual safety.
We will prepare you beforehand the best we can by sharing tips and tricks in your booking confirmation. Once you arrive we will also take our time to give you as many tools as possible to navigate through your journey. During the ceremony we are ofcourse also there for you. After the ceremony there will be plenty of time for sharing, grounding and opportunities to get to know the new you.
There's a popular idea these days that we're evolving in to something higher. We feel that that's not necessarily the case. That something higher has already existed within you and it's not that we have to evolve in to something higher. We just need to be with ourselves and shed the mental and spiritual pollution that so called 'civilization' has installed in to our minds, our souls and our personalities. This is why our retreats are focused on calming down, slowing down and being with yourself.
The beauty of sharing this experience with a group, is that by listening to the other and understanding where they came from and how they came to their perspective of life, we can create a compassionate and collective union of understanding.
