Vibrant Woman – SoulCollage® & Wellbeing Retreat in Portugal
With SoulCollage® Trainers Linda Woolfson & Lucy Schaaphok.


Dates: 20 September – 6 October 2019
Place: Três Marias Retreat Centre, Vila Nova de Milfontes, Alentejo, Portugal

Since the success of our Wild Woman retreat two years ago, Linda and Lucy have been brewing a second transformative retreat in Portugal. We’re thrilled to be offering you Vibrant Woman!

  • Join us in the unspoilt, life-enhancing Alentejo countryside of Portugal.
  • Immerse yourself in intuitive creativity.
  • Delve into exploring through SoulCollage® what true self-care is for you.
  • Replenish your energy as you absorb the wild beauty of the nearby beaches.
  • Walk along the Atlantic coast & let the fragrant ocean air work its magic.
  • Contemplate spectacular sunsets over the sea.
  • Enjoy the romantic charm of an ancient sea-side town.
  • Bear witness to your own flowering as you relax, unwind and renew your acquaintance with your soul.

In today’s world, we are bombarded with advertising, social media and self-help manuals ringing with the buzz-words “self-care” and “wellbeing”. Yet what does true self-care mean for you personally?

Would you love to evolve a life-style in which your own wellbeing becomes an endlessly delightful work of art? Then the Vibrant Woman SoulCollage® Retreat is your opportunity to explore the many dimensions of what it means to really take care of yourself.

   

 

With Lucy and Linda’s guidance you’ll be able to:

  • Flow into caring for yourself completely
  • Further develop your self-compassion
  • Create optimum conditions to be healthier and more alive
  • Set up a fresh and energising dialogue with your inner critic
  • Become fully present
  • Enjoy the glorious natural world around you
  • Delve into your five senses
  • Home in on your own deep well of creativity.

So if you’re:

  • Feeling exhausted too often
  • Constantly dominated by endless to-do lists
  • Finding it hard to give yourself time and space to be creative
  • Endlessly prioritising the needs of others over your own
  • Feeling stale and in need of new inspiration
  • Wanting a really indulgent yet energising break

And if you’re…

Ready to connect with yourself in some replenishing new ways…then we’ve created a perfect opportunity for you to re-acquaint yourself with your innately joyful spirit, celebrate your sensuality, activate your sense of humour, dive deep into your creativity, explore a life-enhancing and little-known environment and flourish as you benefit from lots of personal attention from Linda and Lucy.

You deserve 100% to enjoy a truly creative, soul-feeding, life-enhancing luxurious break!
