MEDITATION & AWAKENING RETREAT in South Portugal
17 -20 October 2019
with Filip Ji
Join us on a 3-day adventure of Self-discovery and merge with the Divine Being You already Are:
Eternal, Infinite, Complete and truly Free.
We dive deep into our Inner Self through silence and meditation and have a daily talk about the true nature of the “reality” that appears to exist around you. This will help you to make an important and lasting change of paradigm. Grasp the opportunity to discover Who You really Are: not a separate being in a harsh world of solid matter but an energetic, intelligent, creative and blissful Field of Consciousness, boundlessly connected to All That Is.
During this 3 day retreat, you will reconnect with your True Self through the trinity of Silence, Deep Meditation, and Higher Knowledge. This will allow you to anchor strongly in the Divine Being You really Are. The inner peace emerging from the change of paradigm will help you to stand stronger and more balanced in life.
What can you expect?
* 3 days of deep meditation and lots of nurturing silence.
* A daily talk on topics such as Quantum Physics, the Holographic Universe idea, Non-Duality, Epigenetics, etc. (all treated in a soft and very understandable way).
* Daily time for questions and answers.
* Daily meditative walks in nature, or light yoga exercises.
* Delicious vegetarian and mainly organic meals with veggies and fruits from our own garden.
* A significant and durable transformation!
The retreat takes place in a big house in a very quiet area in the Portuguese countryside, 10 minutes outside of the village of São Luis, South Portugal, Alentejo Region.
The house is surrounded by beautiful nature, with lots of cork oaks and birds. The sun is shining every day here, and you can even feel the Atlantic ocean. The Alentejo coastline, with some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, is only 20 minutes away.

About Filip Ji
Who am I? Who am I really? That was the question that started to constantly buzz in my head, shortly after having started my daily meditation practice in 1989. The start of this regular spiritual activity has surely been the major pivoting point in my life. There was life before and life after! It meant the start of a long series of deeply transforming moments and insights.
The purpose of my life and my highest excitement is to share the fruits of my 30 years of adventure on the Path of Awakening.
