We offer a series of workshops and courses in the field of meditation and
Maximum participants will be 16. Costs between 170-240 Euros (acording to one’s possibilities) for the weekends, app. 500 – 650 Euros for the weeklong courses for people outside Portugal. (Prices for portugues people see in the portugues version of the site).
Another possibility is to come and spend a longer time as a Long-Term Guest
living and working with us or to participate in our regular workshops and courses.
This can be discussed individually and will only be possible in 2015.
« A Casa das Aguas Calmas » has been developed out of our heartfelt
wish to create a place to live in quiet and among nature;
where other people too can find relaxation and/or particpate in our courses.
Our place is therefore also available for people who are in a transition period in their lives.
When Marcel is not running courses elsewhere, he offers regular Zen-meditation
in the beautiful Zendo which is open to all visitors.
It is also possible to hire the whole centre (as long as it is in accordance
with the spirit of the house as a place of quiet). Please enquire directly.
One can choose to spend a relaxing time around the beautiful bio swimming pond,
or perhaps take the opportunity to bake your own fresh bread or pizza once a week,
using the old traditional bread-oven…
and for those who find this all too hot there is a solar-oven
to cook something nice while relaxing with a cool swim.
There are also great hikes, starting directly from the farm,
e.g. down the path to the river (approx. 1 hour), where it is also possible
to swim – depending on season and water level. Or you may prefer a bike ride
(the surrounding area is uninhabited), or you may want to visit one
of the many beaches of the Algarve. There is just so much choice!
Marcel and Ana Cristina would be happy to offer you suggestions
of things to do and places to experience fine portuguese cuisine!
