Venue HighlightsThe Algarve possesses many treasures. The area itself has great landscape of blue sea and reddish earth, rough rocks and sunny orchards where oranges and lemons grow alongside wild mint and lavender. There are the ancient olive trees, the colored houses glowing along side of lush hills and the high cliffs transmitting a sense of transcendence.
The alchemy of the Algarve.
There are the people that have inhabited the Algarve through-out history from the Arabs, Moors and Romans to the more recent arrivals of visitors from Germany and The Netherlands today. Specific places like Caldas de Monchique have been for so long a kind of miniature magnet that draws different people towards it, not only because of its mediterranean beauty, but also because of the thermal baths from something deep within the earth itself. There is a special energy, an intensity in which the spiritual and the earthly dimensions overlap and meet together.
Just a little bit up from the Southern Coast of the Algarve, around Monchique and Aljezur, much of the natural beauty still remains wild and relatively untouched, retaining it’s natural charm and heritage. This ancient and wild side in the mountains of the Algarve is where you can really reconnect to nature and yourself. With the help of an experienced guide or on your own, you will walk along paths very few ever experience, allowing the natural beauty and power to be an inspiration and reflect itself in your journey and meditations.
From the Atlantic Ocean beaches on to the West coast until Mounty Monchique area is a different Algarve, wrapped in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility that will provide you with a sacred rest.
AccommodationsYou will stay in or close to the Retreat Center Dharma Garden: home base of transformational events and retreats to awaken body, mind and spirit. To sleep at the Retreat Center we have a traditional Native American Tipi of 7 meters available in the middle of nature to make the adventure complete. Not so adventurous?

With only nature around, it is so peaceful. There are no neighbors near by and no roads around. There is no main electricity on the premises, at the retreat center they live completely off the grid with solar power and water from the source.

A sanctuary where all yoga and meditation activities and retreats are focused on developing your self-awareness, while enjoying every moment of your stay.
