ECSTATIC LIFE GATHERING 2023
IN THE HIGHEST LAKE
“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a shaman and complained about being discouraged or depressed, he would ask one of four questions:
When did you stop dancing?
When did you stop singing?
When did you stop being enchanted by stories?
When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence? ”
> in “Maps to Ecstasy” by Gabrielle Roth
Last summer edition video:
4 days dancing, singing, connecting, awakening.
We are organizing again this very special Gathering for the 9th time, this time at the beginning of the summer, where we will be together on the longest days of the year : ))
On the highest lake in Portugal with crystal clear water, a magical forest and a group of incredible facilitators, musicians and therapists!
We will be more than 100 special beings, together for 4 days in a magical place in Serra da Estrela!
A special ritualized gathering, where we will dance a lot, express what is inside, in deep connection with ourselves, with others and with nature!
Free of additives (alcohol, drugs) where our infinite energy is revealed naturally!!
A summer celebration ritual, from which we will leave refreshed, light and in peace.
