Sintra: New Horizons
RIMA is an intimate container of a maximum of 10 people happening in historical and energetic locations like Ibiza, Mexico, Sintra, or Morocco. These places become the fertile soil of an immersive scenario where 8 facilitators along with the guests are co-creating a dream-like reality. In this container, using ancient knowledge and modern tools, we are alchemizing unique moments and allowing meaningful expansion to happen.

Sintra, Portugal
Spring 2022
A dive into the unknown
We are asked every day: "What is RIMA about?"
When every outcome is unique, profound, and intimate, we find challenging to rely on words to describe intense experiences happening inside of our guests.

RIMA Odyssey is an immersive journey with a constructed narrative of 4 days like a movie set-up, unfolding an incredible adventure, creating memorable rites of passage. It is not a step back from ordinary life but a step into the extraordinary. This is the creation of a new reality. Every day is a unique practice, an undiscovered experience, a rare immersion playing with sensations. From bioenergetic to watsu, bodywork, movement practices, immersive dinner, musical journeys, hypnosis, voice activation, and many more activities that don't like to be called names or put into boxes.

We ask every participant to keep the joy of not knowing, leaving a sense of mystery alive, having this eye for wonder and curiosity, and trusting the flow of experience. As Alan Watts said: "A completely predictable future is already the past. You've had it! That's not what you want. You want a surprise.”
Sintra: New Horizons

Just as the early explorers from Portugal charted new geographical landscapes relying on maps and sextants, and the promise of discovery, the 21st Century explorer is guided to span the complexities of an interconnected world and explore the power of consciousness. As a new generation of explorers, we need advanced navigation skills, map-reading abilities for the mother-sea mind, the oceanic source of awareness.


The glory-seeking adventurer of old is giving way to explorers who want to understand the planet rather than dominate it.

The Exploration Within
As we are looking for meaning and answers in a limited external environment, we realized our inside world is infinite. Maybe there is a teaching in observing our close environment, our inner world and maybe finding new uncharted territories?
The Hero Journey
Montaigne said, “It is the journey, not the arrival, that matters.” We want to know how the explorers contended with the journey: the hardship, doubts, setbacks and even success; we relish the stories of explorers because they show the rest of us how to go far away, and come back again. It is the return that creates the example of testing the limits.
The Tip of the Voyage
When life is a journey, how can we make peace with the constant impermanence and randomness of life? What is our relationship to the uncertainty of life but most importantly to the certainty of death? Perhaps we were born into a world that no longer wants to hear about death, and which today, having achieved its ends, without understanding that it has suddenly condemned itself to no longer hearing about grace.
Sintra: A glorious Garden of Eden
Sintra is one of the most mystical idyllic destinations in Portugal. Its sudden and mysterious mists, farms, palaces, and mansions dotting its verdant hills, and the novels, poems, and artworks it has inspired have helped to make this town a unique, magical, and utterly compelling destination. Place of passions loves, joys, and dreams… Stage of stories and magic, where we are confronted with paths and doors that, transposed, put us in contact with our true Self.

A glimpse of Magic

"Words don’t do justice to describe what happened over these last couple of days. I have discovered a different world, a way of thinking/feeling which I didn’t know existed before."

Philippe, ex-Chef at NOMA - Restaurants owner & Entrepreneur


"Thank you so much for creating this moment outside of normal reality. I learned things I want to carry with me everywhere I go. Humanity inside of you all was really inspiring - seems like there's a new narrative in the spreading."

Maxime, Startup Founder - Investor
