Practical Bhakti yoga
Sanskrit is the language of the extensive Vedas. Through millenniums an unbroken line of masters have handed down the secrets of the origin and practice of Bhakti, Yoga, and sadhana according to authentic sanskrit texts. They reveal knowledge about the soul, mind, intelligence, senses, physical nature, Karma and God.
Vegetarian Cooking Demo
Over 2 days we offer a 90 minutes cooking demo each day, of vegan and lacto-vegetarian fares adapted from various cuisines of the world. We highlight taste, presentation and nutritionally balanced dishes using everyday ingredients.
Karatal Practice and Rhythm
Karatals, or cymbals are more than 5000 years old. They are probably one of the oldest rhythm instruments ranging from a few centimeters to a foot in diameter. For ½ hour each day, during 2 days you will learn and practice some of the simple rhythms but fast learners could progress to intricate rhythms with a variety of sounds and beats.
This isolated evergreen valley creates an abundant oasis where two creeks come together as a womb to nourish an ancient lush forest and wildlife.
The name Orada, from the 16th century means “prayed for.” According to local parish records, one of the oldest buildings in this remote protected regionpredates the town, São Teotónio. Legend goes that both people and animals who came would stay until their vital life force was fully replenished. This gave rise to the cult of the Madonna of Orada (Nossa Senhora da Orada).
Orada is a family run, eco-sustainable, permaculture-based retreat centre, nestled in 71 ha of nature. The aim is to expand health with purposeful transformation. Orada is a force for innovative possibilities, new mindsets. The luxury is its Naturalsetting and inclusive informal atmosphere.
