Create a strong vision for 2017 – A Mindfulness Vacation in Brazil


How would you like your year 2017 to unfold?

New years`resolutions often don`t last very long – as old habits are persistent sometimes...
The 6-days-Mindfulness Retreat with Iris Uderstädt is a great opportunity for getting access to your true potential.
Practicing together in stillness and in movement supports the emergence of a strong sustainable life vision.

Mindfulness Meditation, Feldenkrais-Lessons „Awareness Through Movement" and exercises in „Co-Creation“ are our skillful means.
Nature`s abundance, healthy food and  the ocean (at a 15 min. drive) are strong ressources.
We work 4,5 hours per day, so that there is free personal time left.

Hotel Fazenda Sítio Nosso Paraíso

Estrada do Rio Seco, 115 -

Rio Seco, Saquarema - RJ, 28993-000,



Holiday in Paradise - amidst lush tropical vegetation, just 80km from Rio de Janeiro and 8km from the beaches of Saquarema. The Costa do Sol is known all over Brazil for its beautiful landscapes with rainforests, mountains, vast lagoons and endless fine and clean sandy beaches.


We offer 10 spacious and cosy guestrooms as single, double or family rooms. Each room has its own shower room, minibar, ceiling fans and direct access to the covered veranda.

The chefs make delicious local and international dishes that will delight your taste buds. Come taste high quality Brazilian meats, fresh fish and seafood, accompanied by a selection of vegetables, side dishes and salads, followed by coffee, and in the evening, dessert. We are happy to cook the way you like it- also vegan, for example.


On the 10 hectares of organic farmland, there is a botanical garden with a variety of flowers, bushes and tropical trees, including fruit trees like coconut, mango, citrus fruit, avocado and banana plants. Here, you’ll find sunny and covered verandas, a comfortable seating area and hammocks amidst the lush vegetation, a lake with an island and a viewpoint overlooking the sea.

The hotel also has 10 horses, a dog, cats, 2 tortoises, 2 pigs, a few ducks, geese and hens. However, the animals cannot access the guest area. Our grounds are also home to small monkeys, colourful butterflies, many singing birds and hummingbirds.

We offer excursions in the charming surroundings on horseback, mountain bike or on foot, as well as day trips to visit the sights in the region.a
