This retreat is perfect for beginners or advanced meditators. The only requirement is that you’ve been trained in Vedic or Transcendental Meditation.

It is the perfect opportunity to boost your practice and shut off from the outside world, with a complete digital detox. The intention is to share Vedic Wisdom, techniques and expand your states of consciousness, to promote your own happiness and greater health.

There will be an opportunity to learn Vedic Meditation during the retreat or you can attend one of my group courses before, it’s completely up to you.

Sam Wysock-Wright (He/Him)

Before I was introduced to meditation I had been struggling with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, sometimes abbreviated as CFS/ME for most of my twenties. In the west, there is currently no known “cure” for Chronic Fatigue and to be labelled as someone who has CFS/ME, you need to have a certain amount of symptoms to qualify. Not all of my symptoms appeared at once, I’d never been a great sleeper and my digestion was never quite right. My symptoms included; extreme fatigue, insomnia, digestive issues/food intolerances, anxiety, depression, brain fog/inability to focus to name a few.

After a friend recommended learning Vedic Meditation, I didn’t hesitate to sign up for the next available course… From the first session I immediately felt calmness, I experienced a level of relaxation I didn’t think possible and I felt more alive too.

The session wasn’t full of hippies like you may imagine! There was a range of people from all walks of life and varying ages and I felt very comfortable. For the first time I had found something productive that I could do to help myself everyday, no matter where I was or what I was doing.

I became so fascinated about learning all the ancient knowledge of the Vedas and how it’s so relevant to us today, that I followed my heart and began my training to become a teacher in order to help others. It had taken me 3 years to become a teacher during which time I undertook several advanced courses and rounding retreats, which have been valuable contributions to my ongoing learning and recovery to greater vitality. Finally, I then underwent teacher training for 3 months in Bali, where I would meditate for up to 14 hours a day.

I am now based in Lisbon, Portugal and my wish is to teach Vedic meditation to as many people as possible, so they get to experience the profound benefits this simple and effortless technique can offer them.
