6 DAY IMMERSIVE RETREAT AT FAZENDA Catuçaba // May 27 - June 2


What is keeping you from stepping into your highest potential of serving society, the planet and your own happiness?





In modern society we have developed a habit of chasing societal norms of ‘success’ and seemingly never having time for what truly matters.

You are introduced to this exclusive retreat because you are on a quest to explore and reach a next level of understanding, harmony, and inner peace.

Unlocking the deeper meaning to your life becomes possible when you embrace the magic of presence and stillness, choose to prioritize deep rest, and

experience the natural beauty of this world.

  • Gorgeous private accommodations in a former boutique hotel

  • Organic farm to table meals

  • QiGong, Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork

  • Massages available upon request

  • Silent mornings for those who wish


During your stay at Catuçaba we will offer a variety of daily explorations on the 1700 acre nature sanctuary.

Our time together will be a flexible mix of experiences that connect us to the land, our group and deep contribution to life, earth and society.

Change is an attitude, together we will immerse deeply to embody this attitude through activities such as:

  • Horseback riding in the wild

  • Swimming in pristine lakes

  • Hiking, forest bathing, and experiencing the abundance of the rainforest.

  • Planting trees on the land to compensate for our carbon footprints of this journey.

  • Sacred Alimentation, learn and experience the sacred in food on the biodynamic land


You will be joined by an intimate group of aligned humans who are rooted in their desire to create a world of sovereignty, justice, and peace for all, and to

preserve the natural beauty of our majestic planet for the next 7 generations. Unbridled creativity is the birthplace of innovation: through art, play, time in

nature and spaciousness, your unique passions, talents, and skills can pour forth.

  • At the Casa Artista you will immerse into creative workshops to gain fresh insights for your personal mission, journey and contribution to humanity.

  • Through expertly facilitated group processes you will get to know the power of your choice, release fear of the unknown, and step into your greatest power.

  • The ceremonial fire pit will serve as a daily gathering point at the end of each day; we will share our collective knowledge and wisdom.

ancestral wisdom

Author and Speaker Charles Eisenstein during Science and Nonduality Conference (SAND) about the OCA at Fazenda Catuçaba

The architecture of the Oca at Fazenda Catuçaba is an astounding GIFT from the ancient cultures of Brazil. The Oca was built in only three weeks, using materials found on the land. No metal fasteners or power equipment was used. This structure is a perfect marriage of form and function. Warm in the winter, cool in the summer, a building professional architects come to see and marvel about the knowledge and wisdom found in the indigenous cultures around Planet Earth.

The Oca is one of many power places on the 1700 acre property. Fazenda Catuçaba is a nature sanctuary, a place where mother Earth has co-created with the human stewardship present on the land for over 4 generations. This place and its inherent mythical energy is YOUR host for a deep journey within that allows you to grasp and contextualize the ideas of contribution, legacy and purpose. Enough said, this place and it’s magic must be felt, seen, and experienced through the senses.
