Autumn Retreat

Thursday, 13 October - Sunday, 16 October 2022

Above the hills of Ericeira, Alma do Paço is a magical hideaway with romantic charm.

A stunning 14th century chapel is the heart-centre not only of this place but also, traditionally, of the surrounding area. There are cosy nooks to unwind and a pool to refresh body, mind and soul.

With its special light and the fresh ocean breeze, it is the perfect place to tune into a slower rhythm, away from the usual routine, rest deeply and find a creative flow, inspired by nature itself.

It is a place to come home to yourself and back to your true creative nature to then take on the world afresh.

Yoga, Breathwork and Meditation

Body and mind are each other’s mirror. In the powerful classes guided by Marina de Lima, you get to explore and savour movement, balance and presence, both physically and mentally, through creative and playful flows. Certified E-RYT 500, Marina draws inspiration from the concept of harmonising energy through connecting with nature and the elements.

Imprints of Nature

With a mindful approach to making, Jilly and Tom of Lisboa Social Press will take you on a creative journey. On a meditative walk, you are invited to explore the surroundings through sketching. You will explore the power of colour and light in a cyanotype (photogram) workshop and loosen up in a playful print-making workshop.

Wholesome Food

The delicious and nourishing meals prepared fresh every day provide energy to fuel this journey’s creative endeavours, while healing from within. Following the principles of a regenerative food culture, the healthy, vegetarian and local ingredients set a foundation to nurture body and soul.
We are happy to accommodate dietary requirements.
