Cool season retreats

September 21, 2022 - To gather, dance, breathe, and share is hardwired into human DNA, along with the need for community and connection. Our European resorts have a rich and varied retreat line-up led by international leaders to maintain the sparkle in your soul.

With programming between a few days and a full week, enter a playful and friendly space to detach from the narrative of daily life, blow the lid off stuck behaviors, and make some long-lasting and meaningful change. Our beautiful 19th-century Six Senses Douro Valley wine estate in Portugal and Six Senses Kaplankaya on Turkey’s turquoise Aegean coast provide a peaceful backdrop surrounded by the healing power of nature.

Our cool season retreats start with Dr. Alberto Villoldo, best-selling author and medical anthropologist with a Ph.D. in psychology, a teacher and healer who studied the shamanic healing practices of the Amazon and the Andes for more than 25 years. His popular Grow a New Body retreat focuses on living healthier for longer.

As he says, “It’s not actually that complicated. You have to detox the body and repair mitochondria, upgrading the hardware comes first. Then upgrade the brain and grow a new body. The final stage is to practice compassion and loving-kindness. By ridding yourself of decades worth of toxins, repairing the biome in your gut, and enhancing your nutrition with superfoods and supplements, you can turn off the genes that produce disease and switch on those that promote health. Within a few days, the brain fog will clear, sleeping becomes sounder, skin tone improves, and energy levels increase. You are on your way to restoring balance and creating health by growing a new body.”

Ahead of her retreat in November at Six Senses Douro Valley, internationally acclaimed spiritual medium Maureen Hancock shares how she will fill a toolbox with all kinds of tools to open your intuition to see, feel, hear, and sense your loved ones in spirit. This brings lightness to an otherwise overwhelming grief process.

Maureen emphasizes that there’s nothing wrong with embracing joy when remembering our loved ones. Her retreats are purposely designed to be uplifting and celebratory. “I like to take the heaviness of grief and transform it into little pieces of joy. Your loved ones in spirit are rooting you on. They want you to live the best life you can. They want you to feel them and know they are guiding you.”

In December, Dr. Ana Moreira will also be heading to Six Senses Douro Valley to re-educate habits and re-balance energy levels. She offers a unique balance of expertise and experience in both medicine and spiritual practices. “By joining this retreat, you are making a commitment to yourself, to restore your vitality, re-balance your energy levels and leave feeling a whole lot stronger than when you arrived,” she says.
