​​The Refúgio Madeira Project

We all come to this life to experience joy, optimal health, success & prosperity, and love. 

Refúgio Madeira is an ongoing Portuguese language series of experiential modules offered to support the local communities of our adopted home. Covering Nutrition, Healthy Relationships, Meditation, Self-Healing practices, Financial Health, and group Life & Career Coaching sessions.  

These programs are offered on sliding scale and offer empowering, real world tools and frameworks for individuals who may not otherwise have access to them.

All modules are co-facilitated by

Andrew Nolan and Ana Mattos.
