We invite you to take a break from life’s routine, recharge and nurture yourself on every level. This retreat is a precious opportunity to reconnect with nature, yourself, and a like-minded international community and simply be. This year, Vagabond Temple’s Annual European retreat in Portugal is all about clearing the mind and realigning ourselves with the true values of life: happiness, compassion, kindness, and love.

In the modern world, we often find ourselves living in a state of constant stimulation, movement, and doing. This lifestyle can cause us to feel disconnected, restless, and even meaningless – we forget how to simply be.

This retreat will focus on the traditional Tibetan Buddhist practice of Lojong, a form of practice that involves refining and purifying our motivations and attitudes towards ourselves, our environment, and our life in general. This powerful practice helps us to let go of attachments, establish witness consciousness and to cultivate the heart wisdom. We will dive deep into the text on the 8 verses of mind training--a set of antidotes to undesired mental habits that hold us back and cause suffering, as well as methods to expand our viewpoint and develop our ability to relate to ourselves and the world in a more constructive, compassionate way.

A balanced daily program of Yoga, Buddhist philosophy and practices, Pranayama, and Energy healing will purify your mind and body, connecting you to your inner source of wisdom and harmony. The soothing natural setting and serene lifestyle will allow you to focus on shedding the hard layers to uncover your true self.
