Portugal Retreat

July 13 - July 21

Sun drench along the breathtaking coast of Portugal. This summer our tribe gathers together at Cocoon Portugal to reconnect to the body’s innate intelligence and the heart’s intuitive wisdom. A week for tuning the physical instrument to harmonize with the highest vibrations. Nourishing practices, tons of time to swim, bike, breathe, laugh, learn, hammock and hang on stunning European beaches and this sweet retreat held on a huge farm estate. Cocoon delights include a private freshwater lake, sheep, goats, peacocks and chickens that roam the grounds.

Mornings of warm glow practices and late afternoons of restorative sessions. Soft sounds of breathing and sweet sensations of being all week long. Guided meditation, philosophical conversations on the daily. A small group offers tons of personal attention to strengthen your body, ease your mind and expand your heart. Everyday x8.

Space is limited. This one will fill up fast.
