Discover many similarities between your own experiences and those of others. To remove barriers and shame, leading to deep healing.
Not also receiving, but also giving support to others, sharing stories leads to empathy of understanding others and yourself.
You have the chance to contribute and to enjoy the benefits of the community experience even after returning home.
We have specialised training and experience in a wide variety of therapeutic modalities, such as Mindfulness, Compassion-Based Counselling, Somatic therapy, Positive Psychology, and more Counselling and wellness.
At New Life Portugal we believe working meditation is of great importance. Practising the skill of present-moment-awareness is key to establishing the habit of mindfulness in the most ordinary daily activities which lead to a sustainable wellbeing.
Holistic and integrative, our approach to wellbeing operates at the intersection of engaged community living, mindfulness, compassion, physical self-care, counselling, life coaching, and nature. We know from years of research that we can shift our neurologically embedded patterns when we mindfully and compassionately bring awareness to our present moment experience – and then practise change.
Studies also show that a key component of wellness comes from being part of a community: a sense of ‘meaningful belonging’ or feeling like you’re contributing in a purposeful way.
At New Life, we combine all of these elements in our wellness retreats. Here, you can expect to be both challenged, and nurtured. You will have opportunities to rest in beauty and quiet, or alternatively, be active and engaged. We support you in finding the perfect balance, so that you can make all the right shifts, in all the right places, for your specific goals.
