Exploring the Beauty of Portugal: Paneurhythmy Retreat
April 24 @ 16:00 - April 29 @ 11:00
A living circle of beauty, harmony and unity with Nature
Led by Sarah Dawkins and hosted by Jonathan and Tara at Casa Fuzetta in Olhao, in the eastern Algarve of Portugal.
The purpose of this retreat is to learn about and enjoy the movements of Paneurhythmy in the beautiful landscape of the Algarve with like-minded friends – new and old – with Sarah Dawkins of Zoence Academy guiding and teaching us, and Jonathan and Tara of Casa Fuzetta hosting. Sarah has been dancing and sharing Paneurhythmy and the wisdom that lies behind it for over 30 years.
Paneurhythmy is a sacred dance brought into the world by a greatly inspired Bulgarian Master, Beinsa Douno, in the early 20th century. He was inwardly given the music, dance, movements, and prayers over the course of his life, in the beautiful mountains of Bulgaria. Paneurhythmy is danced in the morning between the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes, in a partnership with each other and nature.
In the Algarve, on the southern coast of Portugal, we intend to weave into these five days teaching, experiencing the dance and sacred songs, and working with different landscapes and energy – and eating well.
Although we will be based at Casa Fuzetta, we also intend to dance on various beaches and visit the site of a Sacred Chapel in the Mountains that overlooks the Algarve Coast. This is ‘weather’ dependent. There is more chance of sun and dry weather in Portugal in April than there is in the rest of western Europe. There are indoor spaces in which we will be able to dance at Casa Fuzetta, as well as roof-terrace spaces and a swimming pool. In April the evenings, after the Sun goes down, are cooler – so bring some warmer clothes.
Whilst we have a dedicated retreat chef who will prepare most of our meals at Casa Fuzetta, we will also eat out in local restaurants and on Deserta Island. There will be something for everyone!
