Retreat Overview

Longevity Wellness and Mindfulness and Beyond have joined forces to create a selection of curated retreats in Portugal. The retreats are led by internationally renowned mentors and teachers , Rajesh Ramani and Smitha Jayakumar that helped many people transform their lives during their time at Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary.

The guided retreats combine ancient teachings and traditional practices from Eastern philosophy with modern Western psychology techniques, offering attendees the opportunity to dive deep within and take inventory of their life. The retreats are designed to bring about real change and transformation with understanding and usable tools that can be applied to daily life.

Swadharma - Life's Potential and Purpose Retreat

To live a meaningful life, pursuing what you love, being successful, experiencing happiness and feeling peaceful, is a universal human goal. The word 'Swadharma' relates to action and is taken in harmony with your true nature; discovering your Swadharma is knowing who you are, what you could be and shaping your life accordingly. This retreat will enhance your strengths, help you define your dreams and reach your goals, while anchoring your aspirations into deeper meaning with a higher purpose.
