Conscious Earth Healing Retreats

About us

A Slice of Paradise

A truly peaceful place located in the Algarve countryside, far enough away to be utterly tranquil....yet close enough to enjoy the famous beaches and Portuguese hospitality.

Conscious Earth Healing Retreats is available to facilitators and teachers working in the fields of alternative and complimentary medicine, human consciousness, nature oriented therapy and recreation.

In addition our beautiful venue is available to other private groups seeking a relaxed, tranquil spot for some special occasion.

Intimate Groups & Deeper Connections

Our venue best suits small and intimate groups of 8 to 15 participants plus facilitator(s). The emphasis of the venue is ‘back to nature’, relaxation and slowing down into the moment. It is a place to rest and recharge directly from Mother Earth. As such our venue is rustic, organic and has a natural earthy feel.

Event Support & Catering

We offer full event support to our collaborators, which includes all the background logistics and full catering, or hire the space on a self-catering basis. In addition we have a network of complimentary facilitators who can provide additional support should you wish to add services or more dimensions to your event.


The venue is available from February 1st to June 30th, and from September 1st to November 30th.

The months of July and August are typically too hot to conduct events comfortably in the Algarve region of Portugal and is our peak period for Digital Detox Breaks for private groups and tourists.

Minimum hire period is 2 days to a maximum of 7 days, though should you wish to hold a longer event please do contact us to discuss, we are sure to be able to accommodate your needs.

A life changing experience! This is a little corner of paradise where the hosts work with the purest of intentions to expand the cosmic web of light. For those who seek to better understand themselves, the cosmos and heal their lives this place offers the opportunity to change and grow in a profound way.

Venue Highlights

Get Unplugged & Offline in Portugal...Conscious Earth Retreats is nestled in a 40 hectare estate with private lakes, a river, groves of olive, tangerine, orange and mandarin. We also have our very own Stone Circle. The estate is hilly and has many lovely walks, from strolls to challenging hikes. There is no ambient light or noise pollution, wifi or mobile phone signals, allowing people to truly connect with Nature and themselves. To leave all the hustle and bustle of modern life behind.

We have constructed as much of Conscious Earth from materials available on the estate as possible and have created a rustic, down to earth venue for those whose primary concern is closeness to nature and relaxation therein.

Freedom in Nature
Our Lakes are for swimming and paddling, they are pristine in their natural state, being unpolluted by agricultural chemicals. They are abundant with fish and turtles, as well as other wildlife and fantastic Water Lillies.

All of our estate is available to you, whether you choose to walk the boundaries, kickback in Hammock Island or sit within the stone circle…..or just lay back next to one of our freshwater spring fed lakes you will find places to truly reconnect with nature and yourself.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

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.
