Portugal Retreat 2022
A note from Fleur...
Teaching a Portugal-based retreat is a dream come true. I came to Portugal during a turbulent time in my life, and when I arrived so many healers told me that I was in the right place for healing and insight. Portugal is said to hold a vortex, which is why the country is easygoing and has maintained neutrality in most wars or conflicts. Everyone feels it and locals all speak about it as a place of deep healing and rejuvenation, alongside deep spiritual roots. I have found this to be nothing but true, especially by the southern beaches where our retreat will take place.
My intention during this retreat is for you to hear your own soul, and find a spiritual experience with those on the other side. To facilitate your spiritual growth, all your needs will be met. While I will lead you through daily classes, spiritual experiences, and meditations, your body will be nourished with delicious meals by our personal chef, yin yoga classes, sound healing, acupuncture, and the sea (a ten minute walk from the retreat).
This retreat has been created to act as a life-long tool for you, not only a moment in time to recalibrate and nourish all parts of you but also a week in which you leave with all the tools necessary to live an intuitive, connected life when you return home. I have gathered my favorite teachers and healers to nourish you along the way. I look forward to this transformative week in which you will find deep trust and confidence in your spiritual gifts and access to inner knowing. See you in the sunshine!
About the retreat
We will gather in the Algarve, the south of Portugal in a beautiful space right next to the beach. The intention is to go deep within, to heal, and open up the gateway to spiritual access. Over the course of seven days, I hold a clear goal of opening up your spiritual awareness and building your self-trust, so that you can integrate spiritual connection into daily life with confidence upon returning home.
In order for the spirit to rise, the body must be well taken care of, and therefore we place a high priority on freshly prepared locally-sourced meals, daily slow yoga classes, meditations, and time to see the ocean. Each day will open and close with a meditation.
You will have daily classes with Fleur to establish a deep knowledge of your own spiritual gifts and be guided to your next level of awareness. Fleur will teach multiple times a day, lecture, offer Q&A sessions, guided meditations, and facilitate a safe space for you to try out your new gifts. You can find a sample itinerary below.
This is a well-thought-out retreat journey in which every part of your experience is meant to open and awaken your many gifts. Covered topics with Fleur range from ‘Finding your Full body Yes’, ‘Reducing Empath overload’ to 'Calling in Spiritual Guidance’. The seven-day retreat has been curated to move you through all layers of spiritual growth. You will be given a workbook that has exercises to go alongside the classes and this workbook will also offer resources for integrating new-found knowledge into daily life when you return home.
This is an all-inclusive retreat from the moment you land at Faro airport in Portugal. We provide 3 meals a day and a snack. Each apartment comes with a kitchen and refrigerator, should you want to personally add anything to your diet. We provide all transportation, and we will have 2 people assisting on-site to answer questions, concerns, or find any item you may need. We place great importance on creating safety in your body so that your intuition can rise.
