Free the Spirit – One Space


Painting, Restoration, & Empowerment on the coast of Portugal

Join Amira Rahim & Alena Hennessy for a beautiful week of healing, creative exploration, painting, queen-like treatment, and keen insight to live your fullest life!

One space just opened up~

Dates: January 15th – January 20th, 2019.
The retreat will be located in serene and sunny Cascais (pronounced cash-kais), Portugal. Cascais is a temperate coastal town easily accessible from Lisbon and has idyllic scenery that attracted the attention of artists, writers and expelled European nobility in the 20th century. It is located on Estoril (the Portuguese riviera) and has lavish villas, museums, artist studios and magical gardens. Today, it is an elegant fusion of decorative 19th-century architecture, traditional Portuguese charm and outstanding tourist facilities, which together creates a desired holiday destination.
To get to Cascais is simple: fly into Lisbon (the capital of Portugal) and take an affordable Uber or taxi ride to our venue. The drive is about 30 minutes.
We are so fortunate! Our retreat is located at a 5-star luxury hotel overlooking the sea.
Both Alena and Amira had an exquisite and rejuvenating stay here and understand the value of feeling comfortable and restored on a holiday for all. The staff makes you feel like a queen and the thalassotherapy pool treatment and spa are incredibly healing. Thalassotherapy is a Portuguese form of healing that includes soaking in heated sea water and going through different areas of the pool to massage and circulate different regions of the body. In this retreat you will have 3 gifted visits to the thalassotherapy pool.
The retreat will also include a spa treatment of your choice: massage, body wrap, or facial.
You may of course add on any extra visits or treatments on your own.
Alena and Amira will be leading all painting, art biz, and creative workshops.
What’s Included:
~ All accommodation in a 5 star luxury hotel.
~ Huge gourmet buffet breakfast spread each morning with cappuccino, juice, etc.
~ 1 full spa treatment: massage, body wrap, or facial.
~ 3 sessions in the thalassotherapy healing waters.
