Retreat Site Accommodation

If you arrive a few days before the retreat or wish to stay a few days after it ends, we are offering lodging directly at the retreat location.

Please note that this place is not a guesthouse or hotel. Lodging is only offered during the retreats that are held. Think of it as staying at a friend's house.

We have available dormitory accommodation or shared rooms in simple country houses.

During these days before the start of the retreat, we will be preparing, arranging the spaces, and finalizing the last demands for the arrival of the Rushen group. So you can choose to help or simply enjoy the free time walking our trails, reading a good book in the hammock, or swimming in the natural pools.

We are 1h30 from the capital, Vitória, where you will arrive by plane. You can take an Uber that drops you off right at our door, with an average cost of $ 30. Or take an Uber from the airport to the bus station ($ 5) and from there take a bus ($ 4) here, after which we will pick you up from the bus station in Marechal Floriano, which is the city where we are located.

We do not have a lodging fee, so the charge will mostly help with the maintenance of the space and meals during your days here. As we are about 15 minutes by car from the city, it is easier for you to eat with us. Taking a taxi to the city of Marechal Floriano costs $ 8 for a one-way trip and $ 8 for the return.

The daily rate here is $ 25.00, including lodging and full board.




After receiving your completed form, we will calculate the total cost of the purchase and send you a payment link. Only accept links sent by Shawã, as he is in charge of acquiring the purchased and rented items. Payment can be made via Credit Card.

Emergency Contact

As announced, all participants will be completely out of communication with the outside world. Below are the emergency contacts to leave with your family or in cases of extreme work-related necessity.

Please ask these people to contact only in real need.
