Portuguese Recharge Retreats

Join me in undiscovered Portugal for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. I have created this coastal retreat to meet the needs of practitioners, whose work involves caring for others in a continuous exercise of empathy. Our work is so rewarding and meaningful, but it also comes with significant risks around depletion and burn out. Investing in our own well-being is vital for ourselves and for the work.


Dedicate some time to your self-development in the serene Costa Vicentina area. Allow yourself a rare moment to connect at a deeper level with your own heart and mind without distraction. This retreat offers the possibility of taking the inward steps necessary to reconnect and to find what is healing, revitalising, and nourishing to you.


Springtime is simply magical here with wild flowers everywhere. During our time in beauty and nature, we will create opportunities to develop deep relationships with our self and with others. We will ground our energy and learn as we enjoy the love and support of each other. We will rest, soften, let go, laugh, share stories and have shoulders to lean on. There will be time for togetherness, self-enquiry, self-development, daily practices, silence and stillness. We will reconnect with what nurtures and sustains us.


Our retreat will take place within the national park on the unspoilt Vicentina coast in South-West Portugal. During this 5-night Professional Development immersion, there will be teaching and facilitation, with all offerings being optional, holding space for time by yourself and self-directed learning. Solitude is just fine, if you prefer.

This year's retreat will take place on 18th-22nd of April, 2024.

We are now taking bookings. Please contact us to reserve your place.
