Quinta da Fé
Welcome to our home
Formerly a well-known, established equestrian centre, we took over Quinta da Fé in March 2018 and have not looked back since.
Our 5-bedroom boutique hotel has been tenderly revamped, and the grounds tended to by our skilled maintenance teams.
Quinta da Fé is situated in the Alentejan region of Portugal. The property boasts 9 hectares of rustic, natural farmland, with pleasant local walks, singing birds (from dawn ‘til dusk), farm animals that roam freely, house pets and magical starry skies.
We also have a superb team who is always on standby and ready to help.
We are a small family and we look forward to welcoming you into ours.
Most arrive as guests and leave as friends.

“Life begins where fear ends.”Osho
Kambô is the secretion of the Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog that has traditionally been used by various indigenous tribes in the Upper Amazon region.
It is an extremely effective cleansing medicine of the body, mind & subtle energetic bodies, detoxing deeply on a cellular level and rejuvinating the entire body.
The secretion consists of a unique mix of peptides (small chains of amino acids), which are the building blocks of proteins and thus of human and animal bodies. These peptides are allowed by our bodies to pass through the blood brain barrier, a membrane that only allows for selective passage and transport of those molecules that are crucial to neural function. Upon encountering Kambô in the organism, our cells open their receptors, allowing the medicine to enter and cleanse the organism on a deep quantum level.
What is a Kambô treatment like?
We always carry out all our treatments in a beautiful ceremonial setting with the utmost respect for this medicine and for our clients. Throughout our practitioners’ own shamanic work and training they know how to truly hold space, such that clients can feel absolutely safe, guided and empowered in their journey!
During your treatment you will drink a substantial amount of water that will act as a vehicle for the purging of toxins that are released from the body during the treatment. To apply the Kambô, the top layer of the skin is slightly blistered; this is not at all like a burn and does not bleed, but allows us to remove the very top layer of the skin and create small dots, which act as ‘gates’ to allow the medicine to enter and immediately reach your lymphatic system.
The effects of Kambô are fast and intense, but short-lived and the treatment empowering. You will feel nauseous and purge, after which you will already feel lighter and regain your strength.
There are different treatments available that can be tailored to the individual needs of our clients if they wish to deepen their healing workby removing emotional blockages and further cleansing their bodies and minds.
“The attitude of gratitude is the highest Yoga.” Yogi Bhajan
More than any other type of yoga, Kundalini Yoga (KY) focuses on awareness. People who struggle with any kind of issue and/or vulnerability need to look within to see personal knots in their energy system. KY – with its wide variety of powerful yoga and meditation techniques – is a perfect tool to help and aid.
Practising KY gives an uplifting feeling that integrates mind, body and soul after the ibogaine experience to create deep fulfilment and understanding.
Acknowledging, releasing and transforming emotional pain helps to overcome the need for things that doesn´t help us.
Many of us use harmful substances or defense mechanisms to blunt or avoid their emotional pain. KY encourages acknowledgement, safe expression, release and transformation of those emotions.
The main power and purpose of KY is to (re-) establish the spiritual identity.
Kundalini yoga creates a new way of looking towards to the self in a positive, uplifting way to recognise the divinity in each of us, no matter how obscured it may be by pain, anger or ignorance. Kundalini yoga massively increases our capacity for self love.
“With cacao we can laugh, sing, dance, be creative, think, do yoga and most importantly be joyful and feel uplifted.” Anon
Our cacao is medicinal and one of the best ceremonial grades that has been sourced by a renowned shaman to facilitate deep healing.
This particular grade is from ancient heirloom varieties and is what makes this plant an actual medicine that heals on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level, in ancient times named ‘food of the gods’.
Cacao brings us in touch with our deepest emotions in a way that is loving, heart opening and gentle yet profoundly healing.
We have found that it is extremely effective in supporting the practices that we offer in that it potentiates their healing effects and integration, whilst simultaneously being deeply nourishing to the body in ways that are unique to this grade.
Light has played a central role in the treatment of various conditions and mood disorders such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, PTSD, compulsive and mental disorders. The brain is known and able to heal the body at any stage of illness (spontaneous remissions).
Here Faith Retreats, we use the Pandora Star, a deep trance light machine that that uses flickering light to guide the brain into experiencing a range of beneficial states of brainwave activity, which can be used for many empowering purposes such as healing of the body, balancing of emotions, training the brain and expanding the mind. Pandora Star can access any frequency between 0.1 Hz and 200 HZ and is said to stimulate DMT production and activate the Pineal Gland.
The Pineal Gland is located in the centre of the brain. A pea sized, pine cone shaped structure, it is believed to be the bridge to higher consciousness, intuition and is also known as the Third Eye.
Most adults have a calcified Pineal Gland, with use of caffeine, sugar, alcohol, tobacco, drug use, fluorinated water and environmental toxins.
The Pineal Gland detects light through closed eyes and also releases DMT when we dream and when we sleep. DMT is also produced at other key times in life such as when we are born and also when we die. Pandora Star is said to stimulate DMT production. Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is created in the Pineal Gland and in all living plants and animals. Scientists believe that DMT makes the brain more receptive to its own serotonin. Oral users of DMT have reported similar benefits to that of a meditation practice, experiences like a deeper connection to life, an increase in self awareness and more emotional balance.
Users have said that the experience brings about clarity about past traumas and emotional distress, ultimately learning how to let go of heavy burdens that stand in the way of growth.
