including daily Yoga & Chi-Kung

Join us for this transformational 6-day retreat,
Realise Your True Nature,
and get clear about the future You want to see unfold.

We are all living in a world undergoing an immense transformation. Personally as well as collectively we are constantly being pushed into choosing to live as victims of fear-based beliefs, or to consciously live our dreams, based on the new paradigm of Oneness Consciousness, bringing Unconditional Love, Inner Silence, Balance, and Freedom. We are the Creators in the Divine Quantum Field of All Possibilities, and that is exactly what we now are starting to understand and consciously relate to.
During this retreat we will lift the veil of illusion:
Reconnect with the One Divine Presence we fundamentally are,
and get clear insights about this field «outside» of us that we call reality.
If you are feeling the call, join us on this epic journey of Self-discovery. Grasp the opportunity to discover your Essence: you are NOT a separate being in a harsh world of solid matter, but pure and unchanging Blissful Conscious Existence.
During this retreat we will make a clear shift from the illusionary “separate identity construct”, to the infinite I Am Presence that is our true Self. Therefore we will take all the necessary time for a deep dive into this infinite Space of Silence and Emptiness that we Are, and where we Know we already Are Complete, Powerful, strongly Rooted, Balanced, and Free.
We will also fully reconnect with the Devine Vibration that we Are, the Source and fundamental Nature of all of Creation.
There will be pointings towards the capital importance of being very conscious about the vibration we choose to hold. This vibration will, by magnetic resonance, reflect us the world our senses perceive… We are the sole Creators of our world! Therefore we will also have a focus on how to easily and effectively manage and master our vibration, entirely determined by our very own thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and actions.
We will reconnect with our True Self with
Silence, Meditation, Body/Energy Awareness, and Knowing in the Heart.
Every evening there will be a talk about a pointing towards our True Identity, and about the nature of this full-immersion holographic projection we call “reality”. All topics will be handled in an easy and comprehensive way, and there will be time for questions and answers.
The result will be a radical change of paradigm that will profoundly and lastingly reconnect you with the Divine Presence that You Are. This merging will fill you with deep inner peace and joy, and will make you stand well-rooted, confident and balanced in life.
Time has come to be fully conscious of Who You really Are, and to take full responsibility for the world your senses perceive, your very own Divine creation. Who Are You, and what is the version of yourself and of the world that you want to see reflected? This year, 2021, is all about that… Dharma… Living Your Divine Life…
You Are the One Conscious I AM Presence:
Infinite, Eternal, Complete, Powerful, and radically Free!
You Are the AUM Divine Vibration of Creation:
Love, Light, Peace, Harmony, Compassion and Joy!
What can you expect?
* 6 days of deep Meditation and lots of nurturing Silence.
* Daily Yoga and Chi-Kung practice.
* Daily talk, with time for questions and answers.
* Delicious vegan/vegetarian meals with veggies and fruits mainly from our own garden.
* A significant and durable transformation!
The Yoga practice which will be proposed during this retreat is addressed to the attentive listening to the modalities of our inner landscapes and their resonances with the wholeness containing us and contained in us. Through aligning our structure, tuning our tone, and witnessing our breath, we’ll expand our presence to a vaster field of receptivity and transmission, and awaken to an intimate and transcendental relation to Prãna (Energy). The practice will also be a fundamental support to help us develop and cultivate an alert, easeful and breathable sitting posture.
The Chi-Kung will inscribe our presence in a three-dimensional physical Mandala, encompassing the 4 primary aspects of the Taoist philosophy: the concepts of Yin-Yang, the Trinity Heaven-Earth-Human, the Five Elements (Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, Fire), and the Pa Kua (I Ching – the mystical aspects of numbers). The eight trigrams of the Pa Kua are represented by the orientation of the body (rotating both counter-clockwise and clockwise throughout the form) relating to the cardinal (East – North – West – South) and inter-cardinal (Northeast – Northwest -Southwest – Southeast) directions. The patterns we move through in this Chi-Kung form awaken our resonance with astral energies: stars, moon, sun, and universe. This form of Chi-Kung (Primordial Chi-Kung) reconnects us with our prenatal state, our essence before we were absorbed by the whirlwind of oblivion.
As we set a maximum of only 8 participants, the retreat is expected to be full in a short time. So if you feel the call for deep change, clarity, and lasting balance and happiness, grab your chance and secure your place!
Much Love, Freedom, and Bliss on your Path of Awakening, and we hope to see you soon in the peaceful oasis of Monte do Carvalhosinho!
