“The Peace which passeth understanding.” - T. S. Eliot
Welcome to The Shanti Space a sanctuary for personal development and empowerment; a space to rest and restore well-being whilst bathed in abundant nature.
HOSTED BY JACK & JESSICA WEAVER
AT QUINTA DOS LOBOS, MAFRA NR LISBON
Last Summer we began our next chapter in Portugal building a sanctuary for well-being and nourishment.
Inspired by self-reliance we wish to live more sustainably, eating from garden to plate and using natural energy resources.
The venue, an old Quinta set in a national park and is endowed with beautiful fruit trees, giant oak corks, grape vines, vistas and a stream at the end of the garden where we often encounter our neighbours; deer and wild boar.
Within a 15 minute drive we reach the beach, see the fierce waves of the Atlantic coast and the charming surf town, Ericeira. Only half an hour from Lisbon and the airport, we are in an ideal location for Lisbon connections.
Our farm is the perfect venue for hosting groups, it is quiet and secluded. Our Garden Shala is a beautiful converted glass Victorian Greenhouse, a great workshop space.
The art of wave riding, blends physical challenge with the humbling appreciation for the raw beauty and power of nature.
Riding waves with a wooden board originated in Western Polynesia over three thousand years ago. “He’enalu” or wave-sliding is old Hawaiian; “He’e” means to change from a solid form to a liquid form and “nalu” refers to the surfing motion of a wave.
It is with this sentiment that we invite you to bring more fluidity into your own life on this weeklong Surf & Yoga Retreat in Portugal. Allow yourself to surrender and let go at our beautiful farm secluded in a stunning forest near Ericeira surf town.
