One Day Nature Retreat

10.November @ 09:00 - 17:00


Every month Priya (Melinda) will take you for a beautiful journey into nature. Exploring the Wild West Coast, and the beauty of the present moment. This day is to connect, with yourself, each other and nature. The day will be a mix of walking, mindfulness meditation, gentle yoga and a tasty lunch on a beautiful spot.


Mindfulness is the art of living in the present moment. To be here, now, with all that there is. This could be sounds, smells and views that will come along during the walks, but it can also be thoughts or feeling that might arise. Whatever we encounter this day, the invitation is to be fully with all there is. Through the tools of Mindfulness and the help of the beautiful nature you will experience a strong connection with yourself, from where you will find a deeper connection with the other and the world around you.

The West Coast of Portugal is known for its Wildness, and the strength of this coast is sensible in many ways. The more you are aware, the more you can feel this strength, also as part of yourself.

Experience with Mindfulness is not necessary, a basic level of fitness is required, in total we’ll walk every month between 10 and 12 km.

Priya’s dog, Jaya, will join the walk. If you like you could bring your dog, if it won’t distract you too much.


9.00 Arrival at the location (every month another part of the coast). Welcome drink.
9.15 Opening and a meditation to arrive together.
9.30 Warming up with mindful movement/gentle yoga (no need for any flexibility or experience, please bring a yoga mat if you have one)
10.30 Start walking, sometimes we walk alone and in silence, other parts with the group or in connection with each other. There are breaks for snacks, meditation and enjoying the beauty the nature offers.
12.30 Lunch (The lunch will be vegan)
After lunch there is free time to be on your own, to write, to swim or to connect with others.
14.30 Walk and guided meditation on the way.
16.30 Arrival back at the start location. Closing with possibility to share
17.00 End of a beautiful day.

Would you like to combine this day with accommodation in the area? Priya could help you with this.
