About this trip

This retreat in Portugal is similar and yet very unlike our standard retreats in Peru. This unique retreat is located near the picturesque Tomar, Portugal, a tourist-friendly area rich in culture.  The center consists of a one-hundred-year-old manor house, a yoga studio, a saltwater pool, a gorgeous courtyard, with fruit trees and vegetable gardens throughout the property. Short hikes reveal nearby picturesque locations such as the lake or river beaches. The homey boutique-style living combined with modern facilities, and authentic surrounds, results in a synergistic setting for profound healing to occur. There are 7 shared rooms, with ensuite bathrooms, unique colour schemes, and rustic wood paneled ceilings and shutters. 

>>  Please note that the Shipibo Maestro won't be there during the retreat in Portugal, but there are going to be our most experienced facilitators: Elio and Kara. All the accommodations are shared rooms.

AYA Healing Retreats
54 reviews
AYA Healing Retreats hosts transformative sacred plant medicine retreats in the spiritual homeland of the Shipibo people near the small port city of Pucallpa in the Peruvian Amazon. Our healing work is grounded in the sacred traditions of the indigenous Shipibo people and is facilitated by highly respected female and male curanderos who have been apprenticed in shamanism from a young age.Our retreats invite participants to let go of limiting beliefs and buried wounding and to experience profound spiritual, emotional and physical healing


Truly a life changing experience. I will look back at this journey with more gratitude and love than i’ve ever experienced before. Elio and Atira are prime examples of therapists and facilitators who truly care about the people around them, and follow the mission of spreading love and healing everywhere. The owners of the land are graceful, friendly, and very accommodating. 10/10.

Absolutely the most trauma-informed, safe, consciously held space. 10/10 would recommend, I did an Aya retreat led by Elio, Atira, and Maestra Juanita and WOW I’m still letting it all sink in- transformative, therapeutic, healing, safe, comfortable. The staff and family at DM’s compound on the land were all so kind , welcoming, care-taking, and generous of spirit! For anyone who is looking for an experience that is very carefully-facilitated, small/tight knit, and truly caring about their participants- Elio and his team are the safe hands you’ve been looking for.

The land is magical, the staff is very nice, and Maestra Juanita is amazing. Otherwise, I felt unsupported during my retreat and didn't feel that the two facilitators had the required capacity to hold space for a certain depth of work. During one ceremony, I called for assistance multiple times in multiple ways for over an hour before a fellow participant got up to get me help. During another ceremony, I didn't know whether I should take more medicine, a facilitator told me I should, and I was physically wrecked for the next 24 hours. I had a very unique physical experience overall and was given zero guidance on how to process it. I also had issues with my bathroom and had to speak up about it repeatedly every couple of days before a temporary solution was found more than halfway through the retreat.
