Portugal Eco Retreat W/Nordic Sisters
11-15th of June 2020 Eco Dharma Village Portugal
'OUR FREEDOM TO LIVE A HAPPY LIFE WITH A WILD SPIRIT, A FREE MIND AND AN OPEN HEART'
Eco Dharma Village is an eco-wellness retreat nestled in the charming hills of Arcos de Valdevez in Northern Portugal, about 1 hr out of Porto airport. Having launched in the Spring of 2019, Eco Dharma is the culmination of Chantal’s life-long desire to create a peaceful space in nature that would serve as a sanctuary for those in need of a calm and nurturing environment to reset physically and mentally.
The retreat takes its name and inspiration from the concept of Dharma, or what one would subscribe to as the ethos and ethics roadmaps in our lives. Fundamental to this is a deep appreciation for nature and its ability to support healing, allowing us to be more in-tune with our natural rhythm and flow. The values of Eco Dharma are very much aligned with this and they are proud advocates of sustainable and kind living. Eco Dharma seek to use the most environmentally friendly materials and products. The retreat itself has been designed with this goal in mind: the geodesic guest domes have been made from recycled material, and the furniture has been purchased from manufacturers who up-cycled materials such as wood, plastic and metal to create new pieces. The retreat is 100% free of single-use plastics. By the summer of 2020 they plan on installing solar panels so as to be able to harness solar energy power for their guests.
Eco Dharma is built on kindness for nature and all living beings. They operate a completely vegan site with delicious plant-based cuisine. They are strict about this and do not allow animal products to be consumed on site, however they do offer wonderful alternatives aligned with their ethos. Their edible garden is being planted to bring the healthiest and most natural foods to the table for guests and the local community. The organic and biodynamic methods of farming being used ensures that guests are receiving the highest quality plant-based-foods, free of harmful pesticides.
Whats it all about?
Taking time OUT.
Being in nature. Being with the mountains, the sun, the birds and the butterflies. Practicing yoga in a beautiful dome, experiencing the flower and food gardens (superb places to meditate btw), enjoying a perfectly balanced Ayurvedic smoothie, going to the beach, surfing, exploring the national park or simply just BEING;)
This retreat ran by Nordic Sisters (Ida May and myself) gives you the opportunity to DISCONNECT (as much or as little as you like) to RECONNECT. In a world that usually dictates us to DO more in order to BE more to FEEL more... To accept ourself fully ...
WE all need a breathing space.
This is your chance to come together with like minded people in the most beautiful of places; surrounded and held by the mountains and the clear blue sky we willl open up a space to ignite our passions and LOVE of life. Which has always been and will always be our birthright.
