    Quiet, cozy, comfortable, yummy-healthy food. The ideal resting and recovering place for me, in a magical landscape setting, with lots of paths for hiking and exploring and mystical villages close by to admire, centuries old stone walls to pass along the way, and the magic view of mountains nearby. Horses on the wavy fields pasturing peacefully and the veggies growing right there before they land on my plate transformed into a delicious meal prepared by Valerie herself. Peace, time for myself, and ideal to get inspired for the next leg in my life. This is the kind of place I dream to be at to write my memories. Oh... and not to be forgotten: Valerie is a true healer, so getting a massage from her, in any of the techniques she knows, is the dot on the "i" during my stay at Mensagem da Estela. My experience: perfect! Nothing else to wish for!


Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Rest and inner calm. Karen

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
