Beija Flor Gathering

About This Center

Our experiences are the points of transformation: a beautiful birth, our moments of flowering. In the circles of love hold each other hand in hand as we take steps. We salute the eternal source of love, and ask our guides to help us remember the truth in every breath. We are trying to reveal our reason for coming to this planet and our services to humanity.

For a birth of union and healing, we are waiting to meet hand in hand at the Beija Flor Gathering with source of our love and to give us joy in the garden.

Venue Highlights

Garden of the Humming Bird

We arrived at Caparaó mountains in 1989 and two years later we created ENCA (Encontro de Comunidades Alternativas/ Meeting of the Alternative Communities) where we received more than 600 people arriving from various parts of Brazil and other countries. Since then, our heart is open and our house is full. We are always working to make our rooms, trails, and garden more beautiful to be able to better receive guest who are passing by. We make sure that the Mother is welcoming those who are in the nature that surrounds us.

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.
