Meditative Gathering


The only way to be authentically free is to develop inner confidence in relation to how we want to live our lives, and with it open new paths in the world around us.

The objective of this gathering is to share ancient meditation techniques along with powerful breathing practices to develop your inner clarity through a deep and dynamic calibration of the nervous system.

Energy activation exercises from the earliest days of yoga will be explored, as well as meditative tools and breathing trance practices suitable for everyone except those with heart conditions, epilepsy, glaucoma, or high blood pressure.


If it doesn’t rain, there will be a conceptual session for personal practice. Each participant will do it alone somewhere on the property, which is surrounded by nature.

If it rains we practice inside the meditation hall.


To anyone willing to learn about meditation and breathing according to the oldest culture of that yoga that few know. For this reason the retreat is open to all people.

“…but I don’t know anything about meditation, I’m a beginner”

It’s ok. Both the breathing and meditative techniques of this program are a very good option to start meditating and bring order to the mind.

“…I’m a regular practitioner, I already have experience”

It’s ok too. Our approach to meditation and yoga is totally different from what is generally known out there as such.


– Swimsuit (if you want to use the pool)
– Your own towel (there are showers)
– Comfortable and loose clothing for meditations and respiratory activation exercises.
– Yoga mat. If you need a cushion to meditate, bring it. If you don’t feel comfortable meditating on the floor, you can use our benches.
– Optional: if you have a personal issue around which you seek clarity, this is a very healthy space to work on it.


In order to make meditation an accessible activity for everyone, it was decided not to include meals in the operating costs.

In this way, each participant brings their lunch. There’s a kitchen with a refrigerator and basic utensils – there is no microwave.

Please bring your lunch already packed so it only requires heating or quick preparation. For example: ingredients for a salad, sandwiches, fruit, snacks, or things like that.

All styles are welcome: vegetarians, vegans and no-vegetarians.
