This retreat is all-inclusive, residential and affordable. Hundreds of committed spiritual adepts will become present with each other within this gorgeous, castle-style venue, with an aligned intention and powerful attitude for transformation.

Together, we will make this retreat truly unforgettable and profound. By the end of this event, we will send a powerful pulse/wave of light out to the planet–helping humanity to shift into a higher parallel timeline.

Just imagine the intensity of presence we could summon with such a large and powerful group!

Take a Virtual Tour of the Venue! 

Explore the tranquil retreat grounds in between sessions, go on a hike, venture off by yourself and sit in meditation, or practice an exercise assigned by Bentinho that day. The castle grounds provide many wonderful spaces in which to connect with other retreat participants, meet in smaller groups to discuss and explore the teachings in-depth, and of course, sit together with a thousand other beautiful souls in silence and presence during the official sessions, as Bentinho guides us collectively into some of the most powerful guided meditations we've ever experienced. 

Bentinho's teachings provoke us to look deeply into ourselves to discover what is holding us back in all areas of our life. As we clean out our closet of beliefs, we can move more powerfully forward into our life and into our own ascendance, as well as penetrate more experientially into the deeper levels of Consciousness/Absolute/Existence.

As always, during Bentinho's retreats, there will be spontaneous realizations, hearts bursting open, profound silence, vibrational amplification, transformative healing, dynamic Q&A, empowering laughter, along with inspired, constructive plans for action in the world. We do this all in service to an awakened humanity. By honoring our deepest calling for being alive at this particular timing, we can empower ourselves to bring our gifts into every moment of our lives, for the benefit of all

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included for all 6 days (Tuesday lunch-Sunday dinner). We've received many requests from Europeans for a longer, more affordable retreat, and we are happy to congratulate you on your collective co-creation! Hop on a bus, drive your car, or fly to this magnificent venue. Let's come together to enjoy meals, enjoy the breathtaking surroundings and a transformative and memorable retreat. Whether you live inside or outside of Europe, we encourage you to attend! 

We look forward to being with you for this once in a lifetime opportunity. Do whatever it takes (with integrity) to create your presence at this retreat. We are holding the intention that everyone who wants to participate will be able to do so. We want this retreat be an experience you will remember for the rest of your life!

Policy on kids attending this retreat:

Children 14 years or older are welcome to attend, as long as they are sincerely interested in the nature of this event and have experience with concentration, meditation and visualization. They must have the attention span and sense of respect that one would expect from a conscious adult. If you, as their parent, know this is not the case, please do not bring them to this event, as it will pose a vibrational distraction to the group consciousness. Pricing for children 14+ is the same as for adults.  

Children 13 years old or younger are not permitted to this retreat. We want to keep this retreat focused on the advanced nature of Bentinho's teachings with minimal distractions. All participants, both adults and kids 14 years and up, should be highly interested in the nature of this event in order to attend. Thank you for your cooperation.
