You Deserve To Feel Fully Deep & Alive
Our intention for this immersive retreat experience is to create a space that allows you to fully sink into presence, aliveness and depth of your own being. To cultivate deep self respect, devote yourself whole-heartedly to your process and to liberate yourself from anything that is keeping you from expanding.
Villa Bodhi Bhavan was designed for visitors to ground deeply, to dwell and be at home in their own true wisdom. Our retreat venue is nestled into the stunning natural setting of the Monchique mountains, a powerful energy vortex. The element of water plays a special role. With a 9.5 ph, the water of Monchique is the most alkaline water in Portugal and one of the most alkaline in the world.
