Are you ready to fully R E C E I V E™ these offerings?
The retreat takes place in one of the most beautiful regions in Europe - the Algarve! What better place is there to take this journey to yourself and connect with many other like-minded people than the stunning beaches of Lagos? Lagos is a small town in the heart of the Algarve, and surrounded by famous beaches like Praia Dona Ana, Praia dos Estudantes and the breathtaking rock formations of the Ponta da Piedade.
For the R E C E I V E™ Retreat, we have organised a luxury villa with enough privacy for you to feel completely safe. The Villa consists of various smaller apartments with doublebeds and a spacious garden with a private pool and jacuzzi. It is located within walking distance from a long sandy beach called Meia Praia and you can also walk to the center of Lagos. Feel free to have a look at their website for more photos!
Together with Alex, there will be a number of passionate facilitators who will be happy to share their knowledge about different fields with you.

Mayatita - Breathwork Facilitator
Mayatiita Devi grew up with her father being an Umbanda medium, an Afro-Brazilian tradition that works with the incorporation of Beings of Light and the Spirits of Nature. Therefore, dealing with the energy world that is invisible for the eye was natural for her. Mayatiita has traveled around the world sharing herself through hollistic bodywork and energy healing as well holding space and facilitate ceremonies to inspire people to share their hearts´ truth.
Johnny "Omkior" - Sound Healing
Since childhood Johnny felt a deep spiritual calling to explore both sound and holistic healing on his awakening path. He experienced life changing transformative effects through his study and practice of Reiki, deepening his intuition and trust in universal guidance. Exploring sound through various instruments and vocal activations he was then intuitively guided to unite sound with healing.

What's the X ChainlessLIFE™ Retreat?
The X ChainlessLIFE™ Retreat is a cooperation between R E C E I V E™ and ChainlessLIFE™. Since the R E C E I V E™ Retreat was born as a result of the CL Mentoring, and the first retreat was made up of people only from the CL Mentoring, the idea for a cooperation was born. The X ChainlessLIFE Retreat is supposed to bring the people together who have been through the mentoring and share the same values and goals in life. It's part of the last module, and the aim is to establish a deep (human) connection between like-minded people in real life.
