The group gathers in Lisbon for an early dinner of traditional Portuguese food getting the feeling of Fado, part of the UNESCO intangible cultural lists. On your first day, you will take the time to reflect on the different aspects of your current situation. The exercise will take a 360-degree "polaroid" of your life and create a picture of where you now stand.

My joy comes from the within
I swear I’ve got muscles that weren’t there just a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve got a smile on my face that lights me and has somehow an impact all around. My joy comes from the within, where I managed to put in good order every moment, every challenge (and there were pretty big ones), every joke and laughs; but also the good memories from the places and the people we crossed.

Sometimes you need a little magic to find the things you're looking for.
Sometimes you need a little magic to find the things you're looking for, right in front of you. Then take the time, the place, a small group of great people and a guide to guide you in a personal, unique way — step by step to the best version of yourself. Joao and his Walking Mentorship program gave me the time, the place, the unique group of great people and a little magic to take the next step. I highly recommended it.

Our accommodation has been selected among local partners that provide an experience that reinforces the mentoring and exercises we are doing every day. Sometimes you will have marvellously simple meals and others simply marvellous gastronomic experiences.
