What is it about?
Are you interested in the healing power of plants and the forest? Are you dreaming of spending some time in nature to relax and take care of yourself? Our week-long retreat in the northern forest of Portugal is calling you!
Through the prism of herbalism and forest therapy, we will use our senses creatively and explore the healing forces of nature.
What happens when we smell a flower or gaze at a tree canopy? What can we hear when we sit in silence by the river? How do we touch a forest and how does it touch us back? What is the taste of the plants telling us? How can we feel loved and supported, simply by being in a natural environment?
Each day, we will play and interact with one of our senses in nature. Each day, we will discover the many, emotional, spiritual and social benefits our Earth has for us. And each day, surely, we will relax, learn, laugh, and make beautiful memories.
