About This Center

Welcome to the Lighthouse! Opening in June 2020,Our aim is to organise conscious gatherings and Plant Medicine ( Huachuma San Pedro Retreats In Portugal and Europe ) and for open and inquisitive minds and souls with and without the assistance of sacred plants. As individuals we will be self exploring through inner reflection and as a collective group we will be consciously sharing and supporting each other with the view to form strong life long family of mutual understanding and support. We also want to give others the opportunity to hold space and develop their own gifts and talents.

Our ceremonies are conducted with one key factor in mind, safety! We will prepare you the best we can for the ceremony ahead. Our team have an extremely strong bond and consider each other as family, knowing exactly where our strengths and weaknesses lie. We all met while working at Europe’s largest and most successful plant medicine retreat in the Netherlands and have conducted hundreds of ceremonies and safely guided thousands of participants through life changing journeys. We will prepare you beforehand the best we can for the ceremony ahead by taking our time to give you as many tools as possible to navigate through the journey.

      Heaven on earth ❤️

    This place is absolutely amazing. I’ve had an 5 day retreat with 2 days of San Pedro ceremonies and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. The people are so nice en the place is just beautiful. We had our ceremonies outside in a really big tent that made the experience so much more intense. I want to thank Isher for being who he is and for creating this special place. Everybody should go there! ❤️

      A little paradise

    The place is very peaceful and beautiful. The vegetarian food was excellent, with a good organization. Isha is a jewel of person, always available to what we need, a good friend. Looking forward to go there again!

      An experience to remember

    I have participated in several Ayahuasca and San Pedro ceremonies in different locations. However, I can highly attest that the guidance of Isher, Shuraundy, and Diana were one of the bests that I have ever had. Having the plant medicine is a tough journey and their guidance made it easier to go through and understand. I felt extremely safe with them and enamored with a sense of love and joy. In addition, the place is stunning ! I highly recommend the place and the people and I’m definitely coming back.

    I first met Isher at a ceremony in Holland. He exudes such a strong loving protective energy. True space holder. And this space in Portugal with Shurandy and Dianna is on another level. So beautiful and peaceful. I can't wait for the next ceremony.

      Amazing experience!

    This year was the first time I ever booked a plantmedicine retreat so I was a bit hesitant, also because I was travelling alone but it turned out to be better than I expected. They answered all my questions that I had before I made the booking. The guidance I received during the ceremony was perfect. I really went through it and they helped me when it was needed, at the right time. The surrounding area is so peaceful, it felt like I was one with nature. I spent most of my freetime relaxing in the garden. I also loved the food, everything was freshly made and the place was kept clean during my stay, the team was amazing. They really take great care of their guests. Im already planning a new trip for next year! Thank you so much for an amazing experience!

      Ayahuasca Ceremony

    If you want a ceremony and you want absolute security paired with infinite love for that then shurandy is the right choice. Shurandy never leaves you alone. Call him and he will be with you in one way or another and stand by you whenever you need him. Very rarely have I been able to experience such a wonderful being as shurandy. Infinty Love Frank
