Thank You for Patience During This Time
Following a sold out and delicious debut ‘Living Prayer’ Retreat in 2019, we are delighted to announce the return of Living Prayer to Portugal in 2020.
Nestled in a healing landscape of fruit trees, grape vines and giant oak corks, the Shanti Space is the perfect container for our journey together, we loved it so much last year that we had to return.
Extending a warm invitation to explore both the light and shadowy aspects which motivate growth - our intimate journey together will be supported by powerful tools such as sacred song, movement, workshops, sound ceremony, active release and authentic connecting.
We’ll be holding space for you to relax into your highest creative potential, supported by an in house plant-based chef and an idyllic location. The entire experience is carefully curated to support your journey of unwinding, activating and connecting.
We are passionate about creating an experience that will leave you feeling recharged, motivated and ready to step into the most exciting and REAL relationship to yourself and all around you.
This is a retreat for anyone ready to live life more fully, express their creativity and dive into parts of themselves that may have gone unoticed.
Expect Kirtan, Medicine Songs, Cacao, Voice Expansion (Yoga of Sound and Chocolate), Daily Movement and Creative play space.
When we gather in community with those ready to support, reflect and encourage our empowerment, amazing things happen.
As such we are anticipating a very special group of people to gather for ‘Living Prayer’. We will open applications on the 26th November and and look forward to hearing from you.
