Recipes for Wellbeing invites you to join our 3-day surfing and wellbeing retreat for changemakers on 8 -11 June 2017 in Santa Cruz, Portugal at the Cliff Surfcamp.

We have partnered up with MY Destiny to combine surfing with wellbeing to offer you a unique opportunity to be immersed in an environment that is both nourishing and stimulating. A flexible combination of surfing/bodysurfing in the mornings and wellbeing activities in the afternoons will allow you to discover and practice wellbeing in an emergent and Nature-inspired way.
