Easter Retreat


* Note: the retreat is full. It will be repeated as a year-end retreat in December.

If you'd like to enjoy the days off during this eastern week learning ancestral breathing habits, I invite you to this breathing meditation retreat and its relationship with human emotions.

The scheduled date is from April 5 to 9, and every day I'll guide three breathing sessions plus one of ancient yoga.

Each person is free to choose the sessions they wish to attend. Otherwise, you can spend your time either using the meditative spaces within the property, writing, reading, meditating on your own, or going for a walk through the quiet streets of the town.


Each day I will share ancestral breathing patterns and meditations focused on a specific emotion.

The objective of this is to learn emotional management tools to accompany us in our daily routine.

So, this would be the program:

April 5, entrance to the place. That day there'll be a night meditation for the Pineal gland at 8:00PM.

All other days:

4:30AM-6.00AM – Breathing meditation at dawn and talk about the topic of the day.
11:00AM-12:30PM – Ancient Yoga
5:30PM-6:30PM – Breathing meditation at sunset
8:00PM-9:00PM – Breathing Meditation for the Pineal Gland

Topics per day:

April 6 – The emotional void
April 7 – Attachment and anger
April 8 – Emotional balance
April 9 – Serenity (this day ends with the breathing meditation at 12:30PM)


– On April 9 there will be a review session (optional) at 1:00PM for those who wish to take notes or clear up doubts about the breathing practices.

– Another important element to take into account is the invitation to join in an intermittent fasting routine by eating a soft diet twice a day. It will be coordinated here with the interested people, since the type of food will depend on the habits and lifestyle of each participant.

– The campfire area will always be available.

The program does not include meals. Each room has a common kitchen equipped with all the basic utensils for cooking, as well as a refrigerator, gas stove, and coffee-maker (there is no microwave). There is a kitchen for every three rooms.

– All styles are welcome: vegan, vegetarian and non-vegetarian.

The glass is neither half full nor half empty. The glass has a content which varies constantly, just like your perception and life itself.
