Need more inspiration? Why the Azores is a MUST SEE retreat destination:
The land, the people, the food, the culture...it's unlike any other place in the world, and is absolutely breathtaking and magical. It's an outdoor activity lovers paradise, with something for everyone - incredible hiking through rolling pastures and volcanic rims, soaking in hot springs, as well as world class surfing and gorgeous black sand beaches. It's also incredibly clean, safe, first-world and zika free.
As for the climate, expect Spring-like temperatures in the 50's and 60's - perfect for outdoor adventuring and exploring - and a welcomed reprieve from the cold, gloomy days of mud season! ;) Bring your layers, your rain gear and your hiking boots. The weather in the Azores is sub-tropical and often unpredictable, but what is for sure is that we will have an amazing time!
If this incredible destination has been on your bucket list for a while, now is the time to check it off! The Azores are a magical, volcanic land, full of natural, raw beauty, a temperate climate and endless outdoor activities. Truly an outdoor lovers paradise, and under 6 hours from Boston!

In this Fluid Mind and Spirit Intensive students explore a central question: How can we let go of fear, craving and attachment in order to become happier and more content? The Fluid Mind approach begins with a foundational understanding of Tibetan Buddhist mind training, and explores the science of meditation. The Fluid Spirit explores the tools students need to better understand their own minds.
