DO YOU ...

Different people come for different reasons.
This retreat is for you if some of these questions strongly ring a bell:

- feel like you're a bit lost, with no strong sense of purpose and direction?
- feel like time is flying by, and you're afraid you may be wasting your life away?
- want to just press "PAUSE", breathe, and take time to think about where you are and

where you want to go next?

- struggle with emotions and wish you had a more stable foundation?
- want to stop feeling anxious about other people's expectations of you? 
- want to find out more about who you really are, beyond your current character?​

wish you could be more present to each moment and enjoy it more fully?
- want to feel more connected? in the flow? fun? peaceful? at ease?
- feel curious about life, your mind, and where your experience is coming from?


The program will run in 3,5 consecutive days, with a small group of 7 participants.

It includes INDIVIDUAL COACHING for each participant (before and during the retreat).

There will be lots of different moments for you to reflect and explore, as follows:



This is a coaching program.

You’ll receive a lot of individual attention to your unique situation during the whole program. In particular, the pre-retreat individual coaching session with Gonçalo will jumpstart your personal experience.



In these main sessions, we’ll explore a bit of everything: how does our mind work? where does our experience come from? what does your subjective concept of life look like? how does it compare to others’ perspectives? what about purpose? what’s the relationship between a certain mental state and a sense of inner aligment? …

And many other topics.

sub-group reflections

Many of the activites during the 3,5 days require a subgroup setup. You’ll get together with one or 2 other participants, and you’ll be assigned tasks that will spark your exploration in a supported atmosphere. This is a very insightful opportunity to welcome new ideas and frameworks into your own subjective representations.

In the simplicity of connecting with your body, you'll find great harmony and introspection potential. Regular moments of Yoga and meditation will enhance the reflective vibration of this retreat. A special Tibetan bowls sound immersion will be a nice touch to your self-discovering journey.



In between the group sessions there willl be some extra activities to help us boost your reflexion and deep dive.

We will provide some non-intellectual activities you can enjoy without overthinking :) There may be weather constrains but some of the options are kayaking, hiking, or other.

a space-time bubble

These 3,5 days will feel like entering a unique space-time bubble. All technology (including phones) are restricted outside your bedroom. You will have plenty of free time to read, nap, pool dive, take a walk in nature, or do nothing at all :)
