Da Luz Retreat
Da Luz is a family run spiritual retreat based on simple Pagan, Taoist & Buddhist principles,situated in the foothills of the beautiful Serra Gardunha in Central Portugal. Our aim is to help people awaken their spiritual side, be at peace and live at one with the earth in perfect harmony with nature and the environment.
Being vegetarians we eat seasonally and locally, having a modest off grid lifestyle and low energy footprint. We celebrate the natural cycles of the earth, moon and sun, gaining sustenance from our trees, growing vegetables and herbs and making our own delicious healthy foods and drinks.
Guests are accommodated in our comuna house which promotes an environment of sharing, equality and cooperation amongst all, with the ethos being on peace, love and understanding.
There is no minimum stay period at Da Luz, you can stay for 1 day or 1 month or even longer if you desire, although we do recommend that you to stay at least 2 weeks to adapt to this peaceful comuna lifestyle.
Da Luz is a not for profit retreat where all guest fees are ploughed into the retreat to make it a better experience for all guests. Whether it be to our building fund or our land maintenance fund, by staying at Da Luz guests are supporting a project that will help generations of people from all over the world be at peace and live at one with the earth in perfect harmony with nature and the environment.
