PATH OF LOVE

The retreat that will change your life.

February 03 - 10, 2024
Óbidos, Portugal

A 7-day personal growth retreat

Meet yourself and your longing at a deeper level.

The Path of Love 7-day retreat is one of the most intensive and life-changing processes in the world today.

Established 28 years ago in India, this residential meditation and personal development retreat is now conducted in 14 countries around the world and in six languages.

It has gained an extraordinary reputation amongst people who really want to come to know the truth about themselves.

At Path of Love you will...

Increase your ability to make authentic human connections

Embrace presence, listen to your body, and feel your emotions

Reduce stress, fear, and anxiety, and heal from grief and loss

Appreciate your true spiritual nature, beyond all conditioning

Meet life’s challenges with trust and create the life you long for

Have more passion for life and remember your true value

Called “5 years of transformation in one week”, Path of Love will challenge and enrich you, pointing you towards the meaning and fulfillment we all long for.

Scientific research, spiritual development

We long for real connection, to live with more meaning and to connect authentically with ourselves and others; but depression, anxiety, addiction, and loneliness are at epidemic levels.

Wherever we look, we see the effects of polarisation, in both our inner and outer worlds. We feel more alienated and emotionally detached than we ever have before. 

Path of Love is about closing this gap. A profound inner work, it integrates the latest research and understandings in scientific and spiritual development. It provides essential tools for establishing connection and loving relationships with ourselves and others.

Are you ready to look into your truth?

100% of graduates who responded to a post-retreat survey discovered something about themselves during Path of Love that they had not seen before.

This 7-day retreat encompasses an uncompromising focus on truth and trust, teaching tools to access your emotional intelligence, facilitating a shift in self-awareness, empathy & motivation.

Path of Love will challenge you to let go of old stories, wounds, concepts, beliefs and judgments. It will bring you to an aliveness and passionate intensity for an authentic life.

“Imagine feeling as raw as you can possibly be while being supported in a way you could never imagine. The Path of Love offers the greatest healing I have ever known. This is a space and a time where your quest for truth is all there is...follow it and your life will never be the same.”

Executive and Personal Development Coach

Path of Love in the Media

The magic happens when you integrate the four elements within yourself.

We like to say that the four elements are your real masters throughout the retreat. Ancient teachers from different wisdom traditions across time and space, they carry simple and profound lessons about human existence.

Earth

Let the earth ground you in the body.

Water

Let the water reconnect you with the abundant flow of life.

Fire

Let the fire burn that which you want to transmute into something more powerful.

Air

Let the air purify your mind and bring inspiration to your days.

Led by Rafia and Abigail

Path Retreats has a dedicated team of skilled facilitators and group leaders trained in a wide range of approaches and modalities. They not only teach this work but integrate it’s principles into their own lives. They each have a passionate longing to wake up to their own potential and to help others do the same.

Rafia Morgan

Rafia Morgan is Path Retreats & Path of Love co-founder, together with Turiya Hanover.

Since 1976 Rafia has been deeply involved with spiritual and personal growth work. After completing his BA in Economics at UC Berkeley he recognized a personal need to move away from social and political action and focus on inner exploration. In 1978 he met his spiritual master Osho and spent many years in his presence.

His background, enthusiasm and commitment to spiritual awakening; his love of people, of life and the discovery of human potential give him vast resources to help people in personal growth work.

For him, the Path of Love is the ‘fastest, deepest vehicle for transformation that I know of’. He says, ‘Nothing else I have experienced addresses so profoundly and directly the existential situation of certain human beings that love and seek the Truth.”

Abigail Iquo Isuo

Abigail is an Integrative Psychotherapist, Supervisor, Constellator, Breath worker and EMDR practitioner in private practice in London/UK and Europe. She is also a passionate Facilitator of the Path of Love.

She has worked in the field of psychology for over 25 years and is passionate about transformation, truth and deep potential. She especially enjoys creatively discovering what lies beneath our conditioning and pre-programmed attitudes to life.

Abigail offers individual, couple and group sessions face to face and online. She has a fascination with trauma/overwhelm in the nervous system and the complexity of the human condition. She enjoys inquiry and compassionately exploring the depth of the essential self. Her background and training in transpersonal psychotherapy means authenticity, vulnerability, passion and the spiritual self and soul inform a lot of how she works with people and how she meets life for her own personal self-discovery.

This deeply healing retreat is for people who long to be emotionally honest with others, who refuse to let their fear stop them, and who have come to realize that the process to change the world starts within.

To plan your trip, we recommend visiting Rome2Rio, where you can compare travel options intuitively. See you at the Monte Velho Retreat Centre in Carrapateira, Portugal!

If you’re driving to the retreat, we ask that you give other participants a lift. We’ve created a whatsapp group to offer or look for shared rides. Other options are checking carpooling app BlaBlaCar or renting a car.

Taking a train instead? Your destination should always be the Lagos train station. Once you arrive there, you’ll need to call a taxi, Uber, or transfer* to Monte Velho (~40 minutes ride)

If you’re travelling from far away, you might want fly in to the Faro airport. Once there, you’ll need to call a taxi, Uber, or transfer* to Monte Velho (~1 hour ride). 

Travelling by bus is one of the most sustainable options. You can head to the Carrapateira or the Vila do Bispo bus stations. If you choose the latter, you’ll still need to call a taxi, Uber, or transfer* to Monte Velho (~15 minutes ride)

We advise you book your transfer prior to your arrival. We can recommend Emanuel Brito, Sr. Pacheco and World Available.
