Integral Evolutionary Spirituality, Community & Sustainability
Nature Immersion Intensive
07/07/2017 @ 18h00 - 12/07/2017 @ 18h00
Quinta da Mizarela
In this intensive you will be in touch with Nature not as a separate "thing" but as you.


I am very happy and honored to have the opportunity to teach about the awakening to our ever-present, yet dormant, capacity to be One with Nature, on this 5-days-intensive here at Quinta da Mizarela.

Since childhood that I feel very connected to Nature. Passionate about all the animals that had been part of our family, the back yards full of magic of all the houses I lived in, the fungus, and moss, and later about the magic discovery of crystals.

And because I wanted to understand what this passion meant, I chose the Scientific area for my secondary studies. Each class where we explored a plant´s life cycle, or touched a stone and explore it with a microscope was like a trip to Paradise to me.  I was lucky to have amazing Science teachers, not only passionate about the subjects they taught, but also about what they did. There was one day when one of them offered a small crystal to every student, and I got a transparent crystal quartz in the shape of a octahedron.

Since then I didn’t stop my thirst to know more, explore and understand, not just with my mind, but with all my being, what plants and crystals are. I was called by both of them. On this journey, not only I discovered that they are magic, but also that that magic is also me, and nothing separates us.

I learnt the processes and cure characteristics of both, but I always felt that something was missing. That the vision I had about plants and crystals was somehow limited. I felt they could not be only Nature elements that humans use as healing elements.

Living here at Quinta da Mizarela, a land of deep and sheer magic, I discovered that I could live in an un-limited and un-separated way. And from there all the pieces of the puzzle came together and now make a lot of sense.

The plants, soil, crystals, water and animals are divine, just like me, and what I want to share with you is my developing response to the call to manifest Truth, Kindness, and Creativity trough the plants and crystals, and in union with them. A response of responsibility towards the task of changing our individual and collective identity from separation and selfishness to unity and co-created passion of our true and awakened selves.

On this intensive that is deeply experiential, I will guide the participants trough an exploration of the intuitive connection to the natural world.
