Vibrational Medicine Weekend Retreat

We invite you to a weekend of vibrational medicine with internationally acclaimed musician Ricardo Passos, body worker Julian Marcus and yoga teacher Alison Melvin.

During the weekend, you will be taken on a sound healing journey with live music accompanied by mindful yoga and qigong as well as cranio sacral massage. You will be staying in the luxurious accommodation of our restored quinta and be guided in a deep relaxation and inner healing, all held in the peaceful surroundings of our restored farm.

The programme for the weekend is designed to be spacious enough to allow you time for integration, reflection and rest while including yoga, movement and body practices to support reconnection with your own body wisdom and soulful creative expression.



Relax in our indoor pool, sauna or hot tub or take a meditative walk in the fields surrounding the quinta. The live music from Ricardo will be woven into the programme to calm the nervous system and to facilitate deep energetic healing.


We invite you to be inspired and transported by the music of master musician, Ricardo Passos. Come join us on a magical sound journey and to return home to your vital essence.
