Great Reasons to Retreat with Richard: #4 Magical Retreat Centres
There probably is no other place on this planet with the same healing energies as Moinhos Velhos. This is a place to Purify, Energise, and Regenerate.
Moinhos Velhos is directly on one of twelve synchronicity lines which join together at only two places on Earth. One is at Damanhur in Italy and the other is in Tibet. There are also thousands of small quartz crystals in the ground all around the valley. It is an astonishingly rich and abundant energy.
It is situated in a secluded valley located by the Barragem da Bravura (a big lake!) 14 km from Lagos on the Algarve coast in Portugal. Away from the popular tourist areas, it is 16 hectares (40 acres) in an area of several thousand hectares of natural beauty.
It is a protected area and you can wake up to the songs of the birds in the morning and retire with the silence of the stars at night. Yet, by car, it is only one hour from the airport at Faro, 15 minutes from the city of Lagos and 20 minutes from the nearest beaches!
This makes it the perfect place for a wellness and yoga retreat as it makes you feel energised and relaxed even before you have been doing any practices! I never forget how the smell of the Eucalyptus hits me whenever I’ve been away back in urban life, the sounds of nature soothing my senses. The centre has been there for 25 years and geared up to heal and cleanse, the original founders still living on site, helpful experience abounds everywhere, built into the very fabric of the place!
