In the beautiful nature of Algarve we rent a beautiful venue.  Faro Airport is closest to the location. Being in nature makes it easier to dive deep into the work we offer and letting go of daily worries.

We have a beautiful retreat with the profound methods, most of them developed by Lars Faber: A once in a lifetime adventure of self discovery and healing.

This is part of The Sacred Voyage's most advancd healing program. All our knowledge and experience is focused in this program, that is build around Rumi's famous quote: "The Wound is the Place where the Light enters". This retreat contains two medicin plant ceremonies.

Our  documentary Rebirth of the Soul was filmed in Portugal. In this documentary you can watch the several methods we use (and teach) in our retreats and courses.  

Since 2024 we only facilitate once a year, a 5 day retreat with two mother plant medicine ceremonies. 

  • 5 day retreat Healing, Bliss & Magic
