Weekend Retreat


Every month I open up the opportunity for a whole weekend of meditation, ancient yoga and breathing activation (powerful breathing trances)

The practice starts from Saturday afternoon and runs until Sunday at 5:00PM. At night and early morning there are ancient meditative sessions to stimulate the pineal gland (without substance use)

During the process we do a deep calibration of the nervous system through powerful breathing trances, and an equally deep practical work with techniques from the ancient culture of meditation.

There’re also introspective dynamics for the participants to do during their free time at one of the open areas.


In this project I approach breathing as a fundamental axis of self-knowledge, and it does so through breathing patterns that create altered states of consciousness in order to observe ourselves from a different internal perspective than usual.

Based on the above, dynamic breathing trances are practiced that work directly on the nervous system and the root of emotions. People with heart conditions, epilepsy, glaucoma or high blood pressure, should refrain from participating in these sessions.


Intensive practice with techniques aimed at introspective self-knowledge in static format (sitting), and also dynamic (ancient yoga and intuitive movement)


Techniques to stimulate the pineal gland and tune in to the creative power of the universe at the most mystical time on the planet (night and early morning)


Meditative assignments for participants to develop alone in one of the meditation areas of the property (3 hectares surrounded by nature)


In order to make meditation accessible to all, it was decided not to include meals in the operating costs. In this way, each participant brings their food. There are kitchens with refrigerators and basic utensils – no microwaves.

I recommend bringing simple foods to prepare and thus optimize the time for meditative practice. Likewise, it is key that the food is easily digestible in order to avoid discomfort at the time of meditative and respiratory sessions.

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