Immerse yourself in...

“Three days of celebration, creation and nourishment in the feminine. An intimate creative immersion in the enchanting Pax e Bem – o Lugar do Bodhisattva, in the heart of the magical mountains of Cinfães do Douro. In the echoes of an immense natural beauty, among forests, rivers and waterfalls of blessings, we’ll connect with folk crafts and plant seeds of creativity. A call to reconnect with the cycles of nature and to experience the Medicine Woman and Crafts-Woman that we already are. Guided by feminine wisdom, we weave and co-create a new conscious world in which we choose to live: in harmony, sisterhood and regeneration. We walk together, from heart to heart, SoFia and Irene”.
