about

Join us in the Algarve in Portugal for a blend of Movement & Meditation, Yoga, Breathwork, Ice Bath, Sound Healing, Ecstatic Dance, Stand-Up Paddling and two Shamanic Ceremonies. The Retreat will also include Educational presentations and workshops about different fields and lots of fun in splendid nature and on incredible beaches with a group of like-minded people topped up with the unique beach venue and delicious organic food. 

The retreat was founded by Alex, who has a background in Yoga and has been organizing Plant Medicine Retreats since 2015. He believes that the physical, mental and spiritual realms are in reality one unique element so his retreats aim to bring this union and totality, by building bridges and connecting physical activities to science backed educational presentations and rounding everything up with spiritual practices for you to learn &  enjoy.

Mayatita - Breathwork Facilitator

Mayatiita Devi grew up with her father being an Umbanda medium, an Afro-Brazilian tradition that works with the incorporation of Beings of Light and the Spirits of Nature. Therefore, dealing with the energy world that is invisible for the eye was natural for her.  Mayatiita has traveled around the world sharing herself through hollistic bodywork and energy healing as well holding space and facilitate ceremonies to inspire people to share their hearts´ truth.

Johnny "Omkior" - Sound Healing

Since childhood Johnny felt a deep spiritual calling to explore both sound and holistic healing on his awakening path. He experienced life changing transformative effects through his study and practice of Reiki, deepening his intuition and trust in universal guidance. Exploring sound through various instruments and vocal activations he was then intuitively guided to unite sound with healing.
