The retreat takes place in Monte Velho, a beautiful venue facing the ocean and surrounded by pine trees, beaches, flowers, and animals. At the retreat center, triple, double, or private room accommodation options are available. All rooms have a private bathroom, terrace, and a hammock.

The holistic center is designed to offer all the comfort and space you need for your practices. The main temple “Casa das Pinhas”, made with round wood architecture and heated floor, is inspired in a friend’s center at the Brazilian rainforest, in this temple is where the main activities evolve, comfortably inside and surrounded by nature.

Between activities, one can relax or study in a variety of calm and peaceful spaces that were placed for the purpose of joy and contemplation, all with amazing views to the surroundings. The rooms are cozy with simple decoration, all that is needed for letting go and surrendering to the space of being taken care of, as you walk out the door, maybe the sunlight or the magical sky stars salute.


Wild Spirit brings together the teachings of ancestral rituals and contemporary therapeutic techniques creating the setting for a complete process for awakening. More than anything, this retreat is about the privilege of creating space for yourself.

This retreat will support generating vitality at a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. You will dissolve limiting beliefs and transcend internal obstacles. You will make positive changes in your life and create space for your inner healing.

People have a tendency to value one part of themselves often forget about the other parts. In the society you live in, there is a great emphasis on the power of the mind and a disregard for the wisdom of the heart and of intuition. These tendencies create divisions within ourselves. In Wild Spirit, you will re-establish your inner balance.

The essential four elements of nature

The elements are the foundations that bring balance to life and the magic happens when you integrate the four elements within yourself.

  • The earth that grounds you and connects you to matter, to your body, leaving you reinvigorated and energized.
  • The water that awakens you and teaches you how to flow in life bringing consciousness to your emotional being, teaching you that your emotions can be your most powerful allies.
  • The air that purifies and governs your mental clarity, bringing you inspiration and focus in your life.
  • The fire that warms your soul and kindles your spirit, teaching you to be bold, allowing for you to access the unlimited potential of life that you are.

Monte Velho Retreat Centre is located at West Algarve, Portugal. It was once a rural tourism center. Now, Monte Velho has grown into its true essence and purpose as a retreat center. It is a space to appreciate and bring to life the natural beauty of the environment and a chance to have a real and empowering experience, feeling your connection to your roots, and a way to discover your true nature.

The region is enriched by the strength of its nature, where the high cliffs overlook the ocean, filling the air with a fresh breeze, spreading myths and tales of fishermen, sailors and pirates, sunken ships, and great fisheries. The dense energy that originates from the storms in the ocean concentrates in the beautiful waves that break on the sweeping sandy coast.

Additionally, there is a vast and unexplored area where several species can be seen. The location is a bearer of magical aromas, different plants, many of which are therapeutic. Algarve is Portugal’s southernmost region, which is known for its sunny Mediterranean climate, its beach, and golf resorts.

The whitewashed fishing villages on low cliffs overlooking sandy coves were transformed in the 1960's tourism boom, and nowadays its central coast between Lagos and Faro is lined with villas, hotels, bars, and restaurants.
