with Calen Rayne & Laura Esculcas OCTOBER 2-7, 2016
Join us on an experiential journey through the subtle energies that animate sacred sites at the westernmost edge of continental Europe, the last grounding point of Europeans before they set sail during the Age of Discovery, and the first node of modern global trade connecting Europe with Asia, India, Africa and the Americas. Our theme for this pilgrimage is drawn from the words of Allen Ginsberg: “it is the quality of attention that makes things sacred.” This “quality of attention” sets the context for our engagement in Portugal’s landscape, where we practice skills that enhance our perception and connection with the energetics of place.
