Meditation Retreat in Portugal

Carmen Prema Mitroi

December 13 - 18, 2023

The retreat with Carmen Prema Mitroi is a healthy week-long program featuring regular sleep hours, ovo-lacto vegetarian meals, and daily walking meditation in nature in the magnificent surroundings of the retreat house. It aims to calm down the mind and increase your meditative abilities.

Meditation is a very useful skill for our daily routine. It helps us cope with the stress of any activity and brings beauty and self-awareness into our lives.

Hosted in a very quiet environment near the ocean, between a lagoon and a pine forest, this silent meditation retreat deepens the practice of concentration and meditation, bringing peace and control of the mind.

The complex stages of the asanas, acquired when you learn how to pleasantly hold asanas for longer periods, bring the needed energy flow that holistically harmonizes your body.

The daily noble silence, and “digital fasting” that will be practiced during the retreat with constant inner observation, aim to bring calmness and self-knowledge.

The month of December always concludes the end of a cycle. After a year of activities and before the festivities for New Year’s Eve, we invite you to take a break to restore and increase the energy of your body, calm your mind, and enhance your meditative abilities.
