Heart Space Retreat – July 2021- new dates

We will be holding another Heart Space retreat in Landeira, on the weekend 30th & 31st of July & 1st of August. The theme: Nature is supporting our healing.

We have up to 6 spaces for who wants to come and join us.

The Intention

It is our intention to create wholesome retreats that are simplistic and affordable, retreats that give the opportunity to support each other in these days of big change. We love to share our skills and hold space.

About us

Melanie is passionate about the personal development that leads us into more freedom. By getting to know yourself better and getting to love yourself and others more we experience deep healing and transforming life journeys. We get to enjoy the trip more and step back into power were we lost hope before. Everything one step at the time with healthy curiosity and through embracing the good and the bad.

Olga is a passionate dancer, that uses the art of dancing to connect and communicate with the divine energies. Her skill is also to bring people in contact with this tool of connection and invite them to open their portals through their own body. The dance ceremony is a way to explore and express the unseen through the power of allowing.

We plan on making this a nicely balanced retreat with the opportunity to work on individual challenges as well as having group time and fun together 😉

The location

Landeira – Santa Cruz da Trapa – Central Portugal

Our house can only be reached by walking for 10-15 minutes over rocky, uneven terrain. It is an off-grid location though we have a 12-volt solar system for a few lights and, if necessary, to charge phones. There is no fridge. We have a compost toilet and there is on outdoor place washing and cleaning teeth. You can jump in the river to freshen up but NO soap or shampoos should be used in the river since it is used for drinking water further down the valley.

Where will I stay?

There is the option to stay in our bell tent for which we ask a contribution of €30 per person (for our work of setting up the tent and taking it down, plus blankets to use as mattresses and covers for the night). You will have to bring a sleeping bag/duvet and possibly an extra mattress for comfort.

What to bring

Bring comfortable clothes and shoes and carry your belongings in a rucksack since there is no pathway for suitcases with wheels.


Food – We will eat and cook together so please either bring food supplies or make a €30 donation for food for the weekend (and please let me know which option you decide on).

Sleeping – if you want to stay in the bell tent please let us know. It can sleep up to six people and costs €30 per person for the weekend.

Otherwise feel free to bring your own tent at no extra cost.

Workshops – We put our hearts and souls into the work that we do and are happy to do so for conscious donations. We are also open to accepting non-monitory exchanges. (Please arrange with us if you’d like to exchange). You can pay during the retreat.

As a guideline for the donation we suggest between 40 and 80 Euros.

Remember for some it might be more difficult to give money than for others and a generous contribution also benefits others.

In this way, we don’t lose the fun of offering our time and work in this way.

Health regulations (Covid-19 measurements)

We invite you to come the way you feel safe. Most activities will take place outdoors and us being in nature will help to stay healthy in general. If you feel a mask can help you feeling safer, please feel free to wear it whenever you want.. Please bring your own hand sanitizer if this is important to you. All activities have the option to keep a distance if desired. We invite to practice respect for personal opinions and choices. Please talk to us directly if you wish further information.

Want to participate?

Contact Melanie by e-mail, telegram or phone with any questions you may have or for a get-to-know-each-other-chat and reserve your space. If you want to stay in the tent, please pay a deposit of €15 to confirm your stay. Otherwise, no deposit is needed.

I love to create and hold safe spaces that allow us to explore the depth of our beings. I do this on the physical level at our homes in Portugal as well as in vibrational ways though being present with people during sessions online or in person. I am also an adventurous homey, that loves to live in and with nature, exploring and living alternatives ways of live, education, health and entertainment.
