Guided by

What to expect
Who Am I? The most essential spiritual question of them all. In this 4 day Retreat Peter will guide you into a discovery of an answer to that perennial question that completely transcends your historical identity and potentially begins to live "your" life. The answer is not a "thing" that "you" can have or understand for it is the discovery of the Spiritual Heart that you always already ARE here and now.

If you come to this Retreat with an open mind and a strong intention to Awaken then the Mystery of your True Nature, prior to the appearance of body, mind and world, will reveal Itself. This Revelation is the Source of True Happiness, Peace, Freedom and Love. This retreat will be held in silence in a beautiful nature with the addition of qi gong and breathwork sessions in the morning and open dialogue sessions in the evening.
Where is it
The retreat is set in the beautiful environment of Quinta da Mizarela in the mountains of Central Portugal, which is the heart and the Ashram of the Awakened Life Project. You will spend 4 days in a charged spiritual atmosphere of transformation with Peter and the residents of the Ashram.
