New Year Retreat | Yoga/Meditation, Satsang and Meditation Concert

Monitor: Vera Ferreira e Daniella Monteiro
Date: 30 December, 2018 to 01 January, 2019

This retreat is an open space where each one can flow respecting their own nature, to create an alternative to the running, the excesses and the typical extroversion of the last days of the year. Slow down, simplify, go inward. We may be inspired by what the new year represents, and be receptive to a clearer and more transparent way to seeing  who we really are. Who knows in this willingness to recognize that the happiness we seek is already Here, we can welcome 2019 with a contentment that does not depend on fireworks, goals, targets and promises. The New Year is Here and Now. Beyond the clock time, beyond the calendar days. Now. Now. Now.

Satsangs with Gautam Sachdeva 
Satsang  with Gautam Sachdeva. Coming from India, it is with great joy that we receive Gautam on his first visit to Portugal. Gautam is an Advaita (Non-Duality ) book author.  He spent more than nine years with the well-known Advaita teacher, Ramesh Balsekar, helping him editing and publishing his work. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaji, author of the famous book "I Am That" was Ramesh´s Master. With his teachers blessings, Gautam began to write about his own experience on the teaching. He also shares his experiential understanding of Advaita during talks with groups of like- minded people, with the specific focus on “peace of mind in daily living”. His books , as well as his talks, display a rare combination of humility and simplicity occasionally peppered with humor.

Please note: 
The retreats schedule alignment may be subject to small changes that depend on group dynamics and what the moment demands. We encourage quieting and moments of contemplation. For those who wish, there is the possibility of going deeper inwards maintaing silence through all days. We have available "Silence" badges that you can use whenever you feel it is appropriate and, in this way, will be respected in your contemplation.
