We're gathering those who are ready practice Zen meditation, everyday for a month. While working remotely, surrounded by nature.

Join a tribe of conscious entrepreneurial people, by surf-beach of West Portugal. Do a guided Zen session each morning together. Then get coworking – with fast wifi and deskspace. Finish by heading for  a communal dinner, having deep conversations by a bonfire or surfing under the sunset.

This is not a retreat or a hackathon .... this is an experiment in creating a more innately fulfilling way of life.
