Wild Wave Retreat Portugal

IMG_6181.JPG

6-day retreat at Casa Paço D'Ilhas,

in Ericeira, Portugal with

Rikke Brodin & Aleksandra Ørbeck-Nilssen

BOOK HERE

May 21st - 26th 2018

oin Rikke and Aleksandra in a mystical and creative journey of riding the waves of inner and outer space, of reconnecting and rewilding your spirit.

This will be a magical week of deep soulful yoga and ritual where Rikke will share her most potent practices for getting intimate with the mystery of our embodied existence. How can we move deeper into feeling the full spectrum of aliveness? How can we surrender into the currents of energy and let it take us to unimaginable potentiality? We will explore our inner landscape through yoga, and yield to our relationship to the exterior space through surfing with our wonderful teacher Miguel Fortess for those that wish to play.

Aleksandra will be bringing "re-wilding" to our explorations:

As kids we grow up creating adventure all around us. We decide what should exist without having any boundaries of creation and imagination. We dreamt freely!  As technology & accessibility grow and disconnect us from our innate connection to the natural world, so does the need to travel, learn and reconnect. Rewilding is about reconnecting to that wildness dormant inside you and to mother earth that birthed us all.

Daily Schedule:

Each day you’ll enjoy two yoga and workshop classes and two healthy vegetarian meals (fish available too). Each morning we will start with sunrise meditation and mantra followed by a deep flow class before a big delicious brunch, in the day time we will do surf lessons for those wishing to do that, swim in the ocean and have time to read, journal, write and really engage in those soulful practices that tickle our creativity and that we never take time for in our busy city lives. There will be a sunset workshop before dinner time.

It will be a time to cleanse our being and get connected to what really stimulate us on a deep healing level.

 

We will do an excursion one day all together, and this SUP tour is included in the price. However lunch out on this day is not, and we will also eat out on our last evening together in Ericeira village.

RALEIGH&DRAKE PRESENTS

AN EVENING WITHNANOFASA

Join us for a dive into the notion of rewilding - tapping into the knowledge of the ancients to reconnect one with their inner nature, and find a role in preserving mother nature.  

We'll be screening Celine Cousteau's film, Poverty of Perception, and follow it up with a panel discussion hosted by the film's subject, Aleksandra Ørbeck-Nilsen - founder of Nanofasa, a nonprofit dedicated to the cultural preservation of the San People, and revitalization of their teachings.

NANOFASA | FOUNDER: ALEKSANDRA ØRBECK-NILSEN

Aleksandra moved to Paris and NYC from her native Norway at age 15 to pursue her modeling career. While on a shoot in Namibia, Aleksandra encountered the San people. She initially thought she needed to ‘save’ them. However, after sitting down and talking to them, she realized that the opposite had happened.

The goal of Nanofasa
“The goal of our venture is to provide the San communities, with the economic incentives through eco adventure tourism to conserve wildlife, natural surroundings and resources that their culture and livelihood also depend upon, as well as the protection of their future generations. It will be a joint effort between the community and us, which secures conservation of nature, wildlife and culture, work creation, local engagement, equality and a sustainable growth.
