For those who are ready to live more presently through meditation.
We're coming together for a month, to go on a deep inner journey…
While getting our remote work done, surrounded by nature.
- Join a tribe of warm & conscious people, by the beaches of the Algarve, Portugal, where it's still mild and sunny in January
- Do a guided mindfulness session every morning & evening; combining meditation, breathwork, yoga & teachings.
- Join and share sessions from the tribe too – from workouts and workshops, to ecstatic dance & cacao ceremonies.
- Get your work done during the day – with fast wifi and desk-spaces.
- Relax with deep conversations by the pool, some sunset volleyball, or a communal dinner.
This is not a retreat... this is a month creating a more innately fulfilling way of life.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I would recommend it to anyone that wants to connect with like-minded people, and the present moment everyday, in nature .. while still being able to focus on their own life" – Glenn van Roggen, past colive attendee
It'll take place at a beautiful campus by the beach, in the town of Carvoiero.
With five modern villas – clustered together around pools, yoga shala, outdoor lounges and green spaces, and more.
You'll have a double-bed room en-suite. With desks to work from in your room, open kitchen/lounges in each villa to chill in, and a main cowork area too.
THE MINDFULNESS JOURNEY
Every morning & evening, we'll do an hour's practice, guided by our teacher.
Focussed mainly on meditation; introducing techniques and establishing a regular sit.
Complimented by some pranayamas, yoga and teachings.
We'll do a 4 hour mini-retreat each Sunday, to deepen your journey.
All of these are optional; come to as many or few as you'd like(!)
Here's the journey we'll go through over the month:
week 1: Create Your Foundation
- Learning concentration & breathing methods for effective meditation
- Entering a daily routine of silent sitting, with Yoga & Pranayama practice
- Learning insights from Buddhism, Patanjali and Hatha Yoga
week 2: Enter True Meditation
- Introducing a self-inquiry method based on the teachings of Ramana Maharshi
- Learning insights from non-dual Vedanta & Tibetan Buddhism
- Reaching states of absorption and non-dual awareness (samadhi)
week 3: Yogic Embodiment
Infusing spiritual practice and meditation into the flow of daily life
- Integrating insights from meditation into worldly embodiment
- Learning to work consciously with emotions, energy, the shadow, and human relating
week 4: The Apprentice's Path
- Embracing a beginner's mindset and learning to keep the spiritual process simple
- Refining the processes from the earlier weeks
- Reflection and intention setting for your practice after the colive
Thomas Mathias – Meditation Teacher
After running our June meditation colive to much acclaim, Thomas returns!
A teacher-practitioner, mentor, and body-worker. Sharing Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, non-dual & Tantric philosophy.
He's been practicing and studying intensely for nearly a decade, traveling worldwide to learn with some of todays best spiritual teachers, and has taught and mentored internationally since 2019, being widely praised by those who come in touch with his work.
Extracting from a variety of eastern methods and disciplines, he is known for his energy and ability to communicate complex concepts in an easy and practical way.
He believes that the spiritual path should be about combining the gems from different traditions; seeking out similarities and compatibility, and leaving out what doesn’t work.
Anna Friberg – community manager, Innate
Anna has been running communities for years now; online and in person. Swedish-Italian, she has also lived in over ten countries as the's lived the digital nomad lifestyle. Combining her love for Muai Thai and philosophy with meeting amazing people and building wonderful tribes.
She will be facilitating the community during the month; ensuring that the vibe is exuberant.
In the evenings, there will be free time.
For people in the tribe to share sessions with each other.
We believe that those who have an interest in altered states have so much to share, and lots in common.
We tend to have a love of connection, altered states and inward practices.
Ecstatic dance, breathwork, sound ceremonies, circling, yoga, authentic relating, calisthenics, improv comedy
… the session you could share is up to you (you don't have to run a session btw, but it is fun)
You can learn more about our community here >
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "If you are looking to connect with open-minded, kind-hearted, fun, adventurous and supportive people and also want to deep dive on a theme, then this is absolutely for you!" – Vanna Barber, past colive attendee
GETTING OUR WORK DONE
Everyone we select has work to do, remotely. There’ll be tables and fast wifi. So you can get your work done, collaborate & make your calls.
Start the morning with a meditation together. Then grab a spot of breakfast in your kitchen. And start your work. Take a break to walk by the beach. Or share expertise with a fellow tribe member on their project, by the pool. In the evening, join the tribe for a shared session; maybe this day it's a somatic dance session today(!) After, get some dinner together and have some reflective conversations under the starry night sky. End the day by retreating to your room to journal and sleep.
