I have met daisy a few years ago when I participated in one of her cacao ceremony and it was mind blowing. I decided to join her cacao ceremony teacher training which I have done twice now.  The gift that I received by being in this woman's presence is more than words can describe.

Her embodiment of the elements and her way to transmute it is very unique and very authentic. It's not something that come from a book- it's a personal experience and therefore was so transformative for me.


I learnt so much and was able to use these practices in my daily life and to incorporate it with my own practices and teachings. I'm grateful for this woman and for the gift she gave me, which will remain with me for the rest of my life.”

THE Shanti Space Retreat,


Welcome to Bliss...

Shanti is a Sanskrit word meaning peace, rest, calmness, tranquility, or bliss.

The venue, an old Quinta set in a national park and is endowed with beautiful fruit trees, giant oak corks, grape vines, vistas and a stream at the end of the garden where we often encounter our neighbours; deer and wild boar.

Within a 15 minute drive we reach the beach, see the fierce waves of the Atlantic coast and the charming surf town, Ericeira. Only half an hour from Lisbon and the airport, we are in an ideal location for Lisbon connections.

The food we eat every day can be a medicine with the power to transform, nourish, strengthen and heal imbalances. We have a plant based approach providing nutrient dense dishes; organic, locally sourced and delicious! We like our food to be eclectic and colourful, packed full with flavour, superfoods and antioxidants that cleanse and enrich the body, mind and soul. When we design our recipes, we look at the seasons, the environment and food energetics to maintain and support harmony in the body.
