For those who are ready to live more presently through meditation.
We're coming together for a month, to go on a deep meditation journey…
While getting our remote work done, surrounded by nature.
- Join a tribe of warm & conscious people, by the forests & valleys of North Portugal.
- Do a meditation every morning; and a session from someone in the tribe every evening – from movemnt & breathwork, to ecstatic dance & sound ceremonies.
- Get your work done during the day – with fast wifi and desk-space.
- Relax with some pool time, deep conversations in the lounge, reflecting in the local forests
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 in by Geres national park, Portugal.
With kitchens, lounges, cowork areas, pools, lots of outdoor space and your own double-room ensuite
... It's the ideal setting for us to gather 25 wonderful people.
THE MEDITATION JOURNEY
Every morning we'll have an hour and a half meditation session.
Along with a 4 hour mini-retreat each Sunday.
Here's an example of the type of journey we'll go through over the month:
week 1: Resting In Awareness
- Learning basic theory and building foundations for effective spiritual practice
- Working with concentration and breath to prepare the mind for meditation
- Building a strong daily routine (60-90 mins of silent sitting per day)
week 2: Finding True Awareness
- Going deeper into the more subtle teachings from the systems of Yoga, Vedanta, Tantra and Buddhism
- Introducing true meditation and non-dual self-inquiry
- Sealing energy-leaks and overcoming hindrances on the path
week 3: Deepening Into Presence
- Infusing meditation in the flow of daily life
- Entering subtle states of absorption/samadhi/non-duality
- Working with and liberating energetic/somatic/emotional processes that arise
week 4: Living in the Here & Now
- Transforming spiritual insight into embodied action
- Finding continuous development by keeping a beginner’s mind-set
- Reflecting and integrating presence into post-colive life
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)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "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 in the forest. 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 an ecstatic dance & cacao ceremony! 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.
