7 Day New Year Meditation Retreat

Date:
26/12/2014 @ 19:30 — 02/01/2015 @ 17:00
Renew your Spirit at New Year by diving into the silence of deep meditation in the beautiful nature and enchanting atmosphere of Casa da Ervas Silvestres. Bringing the mystery of spiritual freedom alive through simple yet profound teachings, Peter will guide everyone into the wonder, peace and joy of Pure Being.

A 1 Week Journey into Pure Being with Peter Bampton

This retreat will be held at Casa da Ervas Silvestres/ Avidanja, near Montemor-o-velho, Coimbra.

This is an opportunity to put aside the routine of your everyday life for an entire week and give yourself completely to spiritual practice with a committed group of participants, so that we may be inspired and renewed by the wellspring of peace, joy and depth that is the true nature of our Being…and celebrate the coming of the New Year in an unconventional yet enlightening way!

Experiencing awakened consciousness and sharing that discovery with others is the most fulfilling and liberating experience you can have. When you discover direct access to your inherent freedom you find yourself in communion with life, fearlessly open to the future, and able to respond twith clarity, creativity and spontaneity.

If you’re thinking about taking some time out to be with yourself in a beautiful place in nature, to taste delicious vegetarian food and to go deep into the practice of meditation guided by a skillful teacher, you don’t need to go to Thailand or India. Portugal is the place.
Vasco Gaspar, Lisbon

If we want to be free, if we want to live a life of profound wholeness and purpose, then we need to discover and become grounded in the source of our Being. In this weekend retreat we will dive deeply into the experience of meditation, not through a technique, but through discovering our natural state.

A direct doorway to this miracle of natural awakening is the radically simple yet profound approach to meditation that Peter shares that makes the mystical essence of spiritual tradition accessible to the Western mind.

The instructions are so simple that anyone can begin without any previous experience. At the same time, the subtlety that is revealed about the nature of mind and non-duality offers infinite depth to even the most experienced meditator.

The retreat will be held in silence except for teaching periods and question and answer sessions. No previous meditation experience is necessary and people from all faiths and spiritual orientations can benefit. Besides the guidance in meditation, Peter will also offer contemplation exercises to deepen one’s awakening to the miracle of non-duality.

DSCN2649Are you ready to take an individual and collective journey beyond mind, time and all limitation and separation? Are you ready to let go of everything and leap into the Unknown?

In a time when many talk about starting a revolution, it was really important to understand that the real revolution that really has to start is the revolution of consciousness, and the strong and deep feeling of wanting to be free. In the emptiness while sitting in deep relaxation I could see the seer that sees all the fake action of my mind, and I understood that we all have what we need to be happy, we just have to make the choice to finally want to be free. Relax, enter into the amazing space that will, not knowing how, change our whole perceptive on life, and then all your actions in life will be different. Do not be afraid what you gonna discover, just let it go! And this changed my life forever. Frederico Cabral, Lisbon

 The retreat will begin with dinner at 8pm Friday 26th Dec and will end at 5.30pm Saturday 2rd Jan.

6am Meditation

8am Optional Qi Gong Movement

4 – 6.30pm Meditation Sessions

6.30 – 8pm Dinner

8 – 9.30pm Question & Answer

I have to share with you the feeling of happiness I have been carrying with me since the retreat. It is overwhelming to perceive the difference inside me, despite the shortness of the time we spent together. Yet you emanate such a positive energy that makes it impossible to stay indifferent if one is prepared to open up to your teachings and valuable approach. I feel in balance with what surrounds me. I feel closer to others, to nature, to what is important. I feel closer to the essence of self, which has allowed me to develop more acceptance. I am more inclined to harmony and love and it seems I am discovering certain aspects of life as if I were seeing them for real for the first time ever. I might not have experienced the ultimate state of enlightenment, however I am positive that, with your guidance, I was able to go through a door which will take me to the next stage of consciousness.
Rita Martins, Portugal

Toward the end of the 7 day meditation retreat, weather permitting, we will go for a silent stroll on the beach and meditate together before the crashing waves of the Atlantic ocean. The beach is very beautiful and it can speak to us in different languages ​in a period of silence. So it is very important to bring warm clothes. And throughout your stay we offer a cosy lounge with fireplace to hear the song of the fire …

We have single or double bedrooms with two bathrooms in the house and also a large dining room. I can guarantee one week of comfort with meditation room heated, and vegetarian food prepared from the heart. We offer local produce such as fruit, vegetables, rice and olive oil. We try to use as much organic and locally grown food as possible.

Meditation opens us to the Eternal One Moment…

I had a most rewarding meditation retreat. The instructions that we received for it were simple and straightforward, yet powerful, for they aim directly to the purpose of meditation. I also appreciated the lack of rituals and Eastern spiritual language. Besides this, I valued very much the opportunity to experience the Awakened Life Community. It is clearly a powerful place for working on personal and collective transformation.
Javier Lantero, Founder Tomillo Foundation, Madrid, Spain

I thank you for giving so much on this retreat. I learnt so much about myself, not just in theory but also in practice in my own experience. What was really special was the fact that I got a glimpse of what it feels like when I become aware of this space in my mind. It made me believe there’s actually something to discover there, which will help me grow as a person. It feels like the beginning of something huge, about myself, about the world and the whole Universe! So thank you for all the teaching, the answers you patiently gave us, for the insights you shared with us and for the passion and hope you were able to transmit. And thank you to the “ALP Angels” for all the love they put into every action which made us always feel so welcome.
Barbara Miguel, Portugal

Comment to the last Detox

Yesterday finished a Detox Retreat and it touches my heart how fast a group of 9 people which never met before can be together as a family so fast.We spent a beautiful week together, juicing, meditating, walking, talking and being in silence. Specially the silence gives such a depth to the experience of being together and in the same time real awareness of oneself. Everybody appreciate this times of depth.One evening after a whole silent day we had a long talk which brought us all together to a new consciousness.These retreats are life changing for me and the participants.I am so much looking forward to the next adventure with people who are looking for new solutions, new answers, new perspectives and new friends.

In case you want to do a detox on your own, here a good recipie

In case you want to do it in a group, of course you are very welcome to join us here at that lovely rustique place. We start the next at the 31.10th.
Here is also a film about the consume of animal products. Its very informative and scientific. Very worth to watch and maybe a motivation to finally do what your body deserve already for a long time.

Retiro de Desintoxicação, Meditação e Yoga

Uma oportunidade de limpar o corpo, a mente e o espírito

31.10.-7.11.2014

informação detalhada aqui

O Retiro “Detox” é um processo de limpeza do sangue das células e uma restauração dos intestinos. Os intestinos são responsáveis pelo bom funcionamento do corpo inteiro, todos os órgãos, glândulas, células, coração e mente.

Com a alimentação moderna, os trabalhos sem movimento físico e a exposição às radiações e às toxinas no ar, alimentos, móveis, produtos de limpeza, etc. Somos normalmente sobrecarregados com substâncias estranhas ao corpo. Ao longo do tempo, acumuladas, podem criar graves disfunções, chamadas doenças.

Podemos prevenir doenças através um comportamento consciente em relação ao nosso corpo, mente e spirito.

Existem vários métodos de acelerar uma limpeza e deveríamos usa-los pelo menos 2 vezes por ano.

Neste retiro estamos a oferecer uma limpeza intensa para pessoas sem problemas físicos (graves) com os seguintes resultados:

  • Óptimo funcionamento dos intestinos (aumento do funcionamento do metabolismo)
  • Ausência de cansaço, aumento do entusiasmo, revitalização
  • Grande melhoria da qualidade do sangue
  • Harmonização física e psicológica – reconhecer o estado natural

O processo da auto-cura é iniciado e pode ser continuado.

Também é uma preparação óptima para começar mudanças profundas na alimentação e na vida.

Esta semana é óptima para pessoas com vidas muito ocupadas , stressadas ou pessoas quais querem melhorar os seus estados físicos. Ofereço vários métodos de renovação.

O jejuar consiste em tomar três sumos por dia .Estes sumos na maioria são sumos verdes, feitos com ervas bravas, legumes biológicos e frutos biológicos, para dar nova informação ao corpo e fornecer o máximo de minerais.

O metabolismo troca o seu funcionamento da digestão dos alimentos engolidas para digestão de depósitos, quais nomeadamente são depósitos de proteínas estranhas, gorduras e ácidos. Se existe disposição, também podem ser levantados sentimentos depositados e provocado um descanso profundo.

Antes de iniciar o Detox, vou acompanhar os participantes durante uma semana para poderem preparar o corpo de forma a obter melhores resultados e facilitar o processo.

Precisam fazer compras no valor de cerca 30.- para seu uso intimo.

É bastante fácil jejuar, especialmente com mais pessoas.

A Programa:

6 dias de Detox (jejuar com sumos e chás) com o máximo de 8 pessoas para garantir que cada pessoa tenha privacidade suficiente

1 dia para começar a comer (a parte mais difícil, sendo mais conveniente fazer este passo em conjunto)

Oferta opcional durante os 7 dias:

(o programa é uma oferta opcional, assim podem ter muito tempo para simplesmente estar e observar o movimento interior.)

  • Meditação
  • Yoga
  • clister
  • Massagem linfática
  • Banhos quentes com sal
  • Banhos quentes e frios
  • Ensinamentos sobre a alimentação saudável e conhecimentos de algumas ervas silvestres
  • Aprendizagem sobre métodos de desintoxicação (durante do ano em casa)
  • Passeios, ida à praia, um pequeno lago perto, o rodear

Trampolin medium

Jutta Weiske, a facilitadora, desde á 30 anos interessada em alimentação natural e saúde, já tem facilitado vários jejuns. Não é medica e por esta razão só vai facilitar um jejum a pessoas sem doenças cronicas ou outras doenças graves.

Sente-se capaz de motivar pessoas de passar 7 dias em jejum com todos os seus benefícios.

Acredita profundamente que a nossa saúde esta nas nossas mãos.Temos de reaprender de ouvir o nosso corpo e ter confiança de dar resposta.

Valor do Retiro (tudo incluido)

320.- Euros

Vai ser necessário uma compra de cerca 25.- Euros para utensílios pessoais antes do Retiro.

Testemunhos:

Esta semana foi para mim uma das mais fantásticas e evolucionarias que já alguma vez tive. É quase impossível verbalizar aquilo que foi o Detox para mim, não só a um nível físico, mas também mental e espiritual.
O que aconteceu foi como um “reset” do meu corpo, um desbloquear das minhas emoções, uma clareza muito grande na minha mente e uma sensação de amor e união com o todo o Universo.
Senti uma liberdade e segurança imensa, quando descobri que a Natrureza nos dá tudo o que precisamos para vivermos saudáveis e despertos.
Mas o mais incrível é ter um grupo fantástico com o mesmo objectivo que eu, tudo se tonou mais fácil!! Acima de tudo deram-me ainda mais força e coragem para dizer o grande SIM, um novo mundo é possível; Por muito que sejamos a minoria, se todos tivermos uma clareza de intenção forte e trabalharmos juntos, sem ego para um fim, tudo é possível!!
Obrigada Jutta pela experiência que me possibilitaste e pelo teu imenso amor.

CAROLINA PINHO Designer Gráfico +Ilustradora http://www.behance.net/carolinapinh

Foi com muita antecipação que preparei a minha ida para a Casa Ervas Silvestres para um Detox de corpo e de mente. Um ano de complicações tanto a nível pessoal como profissional, faziam com que precisasse urgentemente de apoiar bem os pés na terra e voltar a dar um impulso ascendente à minha vida, fazendo um restart profundo a todos os níveis.
Logo à chegada houve magia no contacto com a Jutta – que à data não conhecia, era aliás tudo novo para mim – a grande facilitadora de todo o processo. O seu olhar limpo e profundo, o seu jeito franco e alegre deixaram-me imediatamente à vontade para ser eu próprio.

A Casa Ervas Silvestres é um lugar tirado do fantástico. A primeira imagem que me surgiu vinha daqueles ambientes do Senhor dos Anéis – Hobbiton – com o seu pátio interior relvado central às diferente áreas da casa, construída de uma forma muito biónica e natural, como que modelada com as próprias mãos. Com a madeira a apoiar-se na pedra, num desenho rasgado para fazer entrar a luz, muito verde e bem envolvida pela natureza. Foi o inicio da libertação…

Numa primeira conversa de acolhimento do grupo (éramos nove participantes embora dois de nós só tenham chegado no dia seguinte) foi possível conseguir um ambiente de abertura e descontração, que se foi aprofundando ao longo dos sete dias, o que permitiu que o trabalho de jejum resultasse num processo “sem dor”: -nem frustração; – nem fome. A união faz a força e o nosso grupo foi fantástico em todos os aspectos. Posso mesmo dizer que o processo de jejum foi super simples e até agradável.

Nesta primeira conversa também percebi que de facto a Jutta é uma pessoa bem à frente num processo de desenvolvimento pessoal e uma grande conhecedora, não só a nível teórico mas principalmente em termos empíricos, do que é a base de uma alimentação saudável. Isso permitiu-me integrar essa informação de uma forma bastante profunda ao ponto de ainda hoje, passado quase um mês daquele encontro, fazer uma meditação diária e manter uma alimentação totalmente nova que me faz sentir uma pessoa melhor, com vitalidade renovada, tanto física como psicologicamente, não só pelo que sinto eu próprio mas também pelo que diz de mim quem me conhece!

A par de todo este trabalho de jejum, tecnicamente apoiado por um conjunto de sumos de ervas para dar suporte ao fígado e rins –órgãos mais afectados num jejum – e de outras terapias fundamentais para o tal processo “sem dor”, tínhamos também quase duas horas de yoga e três de meditação diárias, entre outras actividades que preenchiam um programa facultativo cuidadosamente preparado para que a nossa estada fosse o mais agradável possível. Esse objectivo foi plenamente atingido!

A marca que trago daqueles dias…

Uma profunda amizade pela Jutta: – Bem-hajas pela mulher linda que és, pela tua casa mágica, pela generosidade da tua partilha, pela alegria que nos transmites mesmo naqueles momentos de silêncio tão pouco solitários e pelo impacto tão positivo que tudo isto teve em mim. Estou-te imensamente grato…!

Ao grupo que me acompanhou, um agradecimento profundo pelo bom espírito de abertura e partilha fundamental para tudo ter resultado de uma forma perfeita.

Hoje sou um ser renovado e tudo e todos à minha volta também ganharam com isso.

Encontramo-nos na primavera para mais um Detox? J

Muito bom!! Já deixa saudade!… Um espaço e tempo onde a Jutta pensa em tudo ao pormenor e com carinho para cuidar de nós, para nos fazer bem, para nos limpar da porcaria e toxicidade desse mundo pouco saudável em que vivemos.

Ui!… O resto ;) Durante esse processo de verdadeira limpeza, durante o qual o corpo consegue um merecido descanso para se reorganizar, a Jutta, incansável, chega-nos com toda a sua energia e saber a falar de “raw-food”, de mudança sustentável, criando uma ciência lógica sobre alimentação e vida :) Na sua vontade forte de nos transformar para melhor, de nos passar hábitos e formas de estar saudáveis e harmoniosas, é vitoriosa :) Acresce a isso o nos fazer reflectir sobre o poder da escolha e quando páras (porque páras!) queres dar um grande Sim à Vida ;) Obrigada, querida amiga Jutta, uma inspiração :) Sim, talvez seja possível mudar o mundo ;) E porque, sem voçês, nada teria sido igual, grande grupinho Detox :) )) Beijo-vos a todos!!                                                        Angela Rodrigues

Experiência fantástica esta a de não comer, parar, ouvir e sentir o corpo a limpar as impurezas que nos debilitam física, psicológica e emocionalmente. Uma semana que foi uma viagem pessoal profunda num ambiente familiar e descontraído. O Jejum aliado às formas de limpeza e desintoxicação do organismo, a Meditação e o Silêncio, fazem deste Retiro um Espaço de Transformação poderoso, potenciador de criar mudanças significativas nas vidas das pessoas.
Grato à Jutta por ser uma Catalisadora de Energia Positiva, pela partilha de tanto conhecimento e pela disponibilidade! Grato por me fazeres reflectir e estar cada vez mais atento à noção do Ego! E Obrigado a todos os participantes por estes dias em que me senti realmente Feliz!!!                                                                                                        Pedro Morais

Sinto-me muito grata por ter participado neste retiro que me ajudou não só a desintoxicar o meu corpo mas também a minha mente :) vim cheia de ideias e boas intenções para renovar os meus hábitos de vida e a Jutta foi sem duvida uma inspiração para mim.
Agradeço-te Jutta de coração foste fantástica recebeste-nos com todo o carinho e nao faltou nada pensaste em tudo ao pormenor. O jejum foi bastante fácil não senti fome pois também acho que nem dava tempo com tantas coisas que tínhamos para fazer :)
O teu sitio é lindo pois esta tudo tratado com todo o amor e isso sente-se :)
Grata por toda a partilha és linda e inspiras-me em breve vou ai te visitar porque ja estou com saudades.
Agradeço também ao universo pelos amigos todos novos que fiz pois parece que já os conhecia e senti-me em casa, em família :) afinal somos todos UM                   Sandra Sousa

Mi experiencia del detox:
He pasado una semana fantastica, a nivel experiencia personal ( cuerpo y mente), y a nivel convivencia en el grupo.
Una limpieza tan profunda con todo los detailles, no he hecho antes, las meditaciones y el yoga como apoyo fisico y mental y despues los zumos tan especiales y ricos en minerales y vitaminas estaban buenisimos.
Si, he vuelto a casa como nueva y con fuerzas y ganas de siguir cuidandome mi alimentacion.

Un retiro de lo que no me olvidare, gracias a todos y todas que estabais ahi. un saludo Siegrun Bischof

Women Waking Up to Their True Potential – ALP

Date:
12/09/2014 @ 20:00 — 14/09/2014 @ 17:30
Where:
Awakened Life Project, Benfeita, Arganil
Price:
120,0 €
What is the true potential of women in the 21st Century? What role do women have in creating a new culture and a new world? Learn to transform yourself, your relationships, our world. Join us for a weekend retreat that may just change your life!

What is the true potential of women in the 21st Century? What role do women have in creating a new culture and a new world?

This retreat is all about the role that ‘the feminine’ will play in the next evolutionary phase of humanity. It will be a celebration of what is possible for women who are willing to change, transcend old structures and to come together as true spiritual sisters so that something new can be born.

We will go on a journey together looking into the culturally created limitations of women and more importantly our capacity to transcend these limitations.

There will be guided meditation sessions to connect to the deeper part of oneself where there are no problems to overcome. There is no meditation experience needed.

Our time together will be both cosmic and very practical. Each woman will have the opportunity to look into what holds her back and in doing so can experience the universal nature of all the obstacle she thinks she has. Finding out that your ‘issues’ are really everyone else’s issues is a very liberating moment and it will break protective barriers in you.

The aim of the retreat is to give women a new perspective to interpret one’s life. This perspective is based on evolutionary spirituality and it will help you to experience yourself as part of an evolutionary process that is creative and dynamic. The historical past of women consciously and unconsciously affect how we are as women today. We will look into this history so we can all understand why women think what we think and why we do what we do.

The event will be a combination of meditation, presentation, writing exercises, small discussion groups and larger group dynamic exercises.

This will be an individual and a collective journey. Experience the thrill of coming together with others in the spirit of transformation. If you would like to read an article on ‘What is an Evolutionary Enlightened Woman?’, please click here.

If you are interested in getting connected to a deeper part of yourself, transcending limitations and coming together with other women in ways you could never have imagined, this retreat is for you. All that is needed is an open heart, a willingness to drop old ideas, and an interest in transformation.

To read a blog post about a past retreat please click here.

Here are what some participants from past retreats have said.

I had really high expectations of the Women’s Retreat. I was sure that it would be amazing, liberating, joyful, tough, strengthening. It exceeded all my expectations. I didn’t think it was be possible to achieve so much in two days.

I saw more of conditioning in myself than I have ever seen before. The group discussions and writing exercises helped me to see our conditioning from the outside, like a bad movie that I could stop playing.

Miriam – UK
—–
The level of confidence in which we lived during the retreat made me break some of the barriers related to my self-image. I began a journey into my deepest being, where I saw many of the female conditions that I am made of. Now I’m a more aware being.

Rute – Lisbon, Portugal
—–
After these two days, it is clear to me how much cultural conditioning is keeping me away from my real capacities of connection, from building a ground of trust from where I can act and interact with others, without fear or doubt. Women have such a beauty and strength which can no longer be prevented, I/we must fully live all the dreams we wish silently. The times we are living demand great courage from each one of us.

– Sara – Coimbra, Portugal
——
So if there are an women (or men) reading this who feel disenfranchised, disassociated from their body, their minds, their friends and family, life, then get yourselves over here, be part of this magnificent and beautiful growing knowledge and perspective, to gain the realization that actually, we are all, already, who we need to be. No exceptions.

So did I learn all this is a weekend? Yes, absolutely. I was so ready to let go and trust, to be small. And then we all, as one, expanded. Truly amazing!

Sky – UK
—–
Why? Why do I resist? I am more than what I appear to be, I am capable, I have the strength of the universe inside of me and this strength wants to explode and expand like a sea of stars in the sky.

Can I hide myself in the shadow of who I am? Of my infinite consciousness? No! I say No! I can’t go back. I am evolution itself and it is here and now that I am. The bell has rung and the process speeds up. There is no way to stop it…

Thank you to the ALP, thank you to Cynthia, thank you to all the women, thank you to the Universe for creating this opportunity for us to grow and expand our consciousness that is the consciousness of the Universe itself. Thank you.

Alexandra – Porto, Portugal
——

Thank you for the great retreat you offered us. For me it was a growing experience, holding a context, while transcending my own limitations.
It was a fantastic experience being with so many women and sensing that a new culture is manifesting right now. Its made us so very strong to understand our deep conditionings not only in our personal family story, but throughout history. Being able to name conditionings and having the tools to transcend them, liberates us to do what we always dreamt to do.

I want to say; that the teaching you transmit is a teaching of immediate transformation. very practical, very demanding and very empowering.

This is what we need to create a world in which not only we, but also our children and grandchildren can dance the universal dance of ecstasy and joy, ever creating something new.

Here are what some participants from past retreats have said.

I feel that the value of this retreat was not only the content, but the way it is reverberating after in my life…

My structures were shaken by everything we felt, thought and discovered during these days about being a woman, and the freedom and responsibility that we have to act TODAY?

What struck me most in this experiment ?
Firstly , I had never been in the same context with a group of 38 women, and women united by the same purpose. A very fluid coexistence in harmony and unity that was higher from the first moment that distrust or competition.

At the same time, I felt that we were having the opportunity to live our femininity from a very ” real” and wide perspective, without being “romanticizing” ourselves (let’s join hands and do “female” dances) or focusing on body practice ( menstrual cycle, natural childbirth etc. ), but try to understand, in a comprehensive manner, what has defined a woman until now and the new woman ” that it is in our hands to give birth to!

It was so important to have for the first time the notion of women’s history from the beginning of time until now. A none victimized perspective, in order to understand what is behind us. We would not be here with the awareness that we have today without all that came before. And I know, increasingly, that the path is continuous and sometimes difficult, but the energy we get back when we give ourselves to Evolution fills everything.

I was never before with so many unknown women in a room or in a retreat, but the energy felt during two days blew me apart with amazement and excitement. Since the first meditation, I could feel we were so together, and everyone was looking forward to go deeper, to explore the unknown, to find a little bit more about each other and about this female consciousness that I always knew to be there. As the retreat went by I couldn’t stop being astonished with so much covered and so much reached in such a small amount of time. When the retreat was over and I looked at everyone’s faces, there was this relaxation and ease, this shining and lightness of being.

Ever more I believe that when a group of women come together with the same interest, dedication and above all intention, they can achieve the unachievable, go places never walked before and transform the world. And we did all that in only two days. I thank Cynthia and the ALP for making this possible and real.

The trust field created among women present in the retreat, made me start witnessing more often what kind of field i’m creating with the women in my everyday life. I became more and more aware of the shared field I co-create, be it with women, men, children, grandmother, people! I’m responding to what i’m being called to respond to. It’s not as I tend to predict in form, but it is clearly The Process, and it’s huge to be part of it! It’s not so important if I’m doing the “jobs” i know I can do, it’s much more important to realize that there’s so much more I can do, that i didn’t know, and simply let it manifest!
Namasté!

I had really high expectations of the Women’s Retreat. I was sure that it would be amazing, liberating, joyful, tough, strengthening. It exceeded all my expectations. I didn’t think it was be possible to achieve so much.

I saw more of conditioning in myself than I have ever seen before. The group discussions and writing exercises helped me to see our conditioning from the outside, like a bad movie that I could stop playing.

The level of confidence in which we lived during the retreat made me break some of the barriers related to my self-image. I began a journey into my deepest being, where I saw many of the female conditions that I am made of. Now I’m a more aware being.

Rute – Lisbon, Portugal
————————————–
After this retreat, it is clear to me how much cultural conditioning is keeping me away from my real capacities of connection, from building a ground of trust from where I can act and interact with others, without fear or doubt. Women have such a beauty and strength which can no longer be prevented, I/we must fully live all the dreams we wish silently. The times we are living demand great courage from each one of us.

– Sara – Coimbra, Portugal
————————————-
So if there are an women (or men) reading this who feel disenfranchised, disassociated from their body, their minds, their friends and family, life, then get yourselves over here, be part of this magnificent and beautiful growing knowledge and perspective, to gain the realization that actually, we are all, already, who we need to be. No exceptions.

So did I learn all this in one retreat? Yes, absolutely. I was so ready to let go and trust, to be small. And then we all, as one, expanded. Truly amazing!

Sky – UK
————————————
Why? Why do I resist? I am more than what I appear to be, I am capable, I have the strength of the universe inside of me and this strength wants to explode and expand like a sea of stars in the sky.

Can I hide myself in the shadow of who I am? Of my infinite consciousness? No! I say No! I can’t go back. I am evolution itself and it is here and now that I am. The bell has rung and the process speeds up. There is no way to stop it…

Thank you to the ALP, thank you to Cynthia, thank you to all the women, thank you to the Universe for creating this opportunity for us to grow and expand our consciousness that is the consciousness of the Universe itself. Thank you.

Alexandra – Porto, Portugal

Thank you for the great retreat you offered us. For me it was a growing experience, holding a context, while transcending my own limitations.
It was a fantastic experience being with so many women and sensing that a new culture is manifesting right now. Its made us so very strong to understand our deep conditionings not only in our personal family story, but throughout history. Being able to name conditionings and having the tools to transcend them, liberates us to do what we always dreamt to do.

I want to say; that the teaching you transmit is a teaching of immediate transformation. very practical, very demanding and very empowering.

This is what we need to create a world in which not only we, but also our children and grandchildren can dance the universal dance of ecstasy and joy, ever creating something new.
