23 February 2019

 

We invite you to join us in an unforgettable and mindful experience in Nature.
As we hike through the mystical lands of Sintra, we will reflect upon trees and our ancient connection with them.

About

Vast and profound, their roots resemble our own, ever reminding us to ground ourselves onto this very earth. Their branches mirror our wishes to reach towards the sky and our own dreams. In this walk, we invite you to learn valuable lessons from these fascinating and wise beings.

As is our way, we will have a contemplative hike enriched with many meditative moments and mindfulness-based group activities. This is a unique chance to connect with others, with the surrounding landscape and with yourself on a deeper and meaningful level.

The Sintra-Cascais Natural Park is our chosen setting for this walk. Its forest’s rich vegetation and higher elevation create a microclimate whose features make it quite different from the surrounding landscape - such as the almost ever-lasting mists that cloak these mountains, undoubtedly contributing to the area’s magical atmosphere.
