´What is Offline Portugal?

Offline Portugal is a Movement of awareness that invites you to

disconnect from technology and reconnect with yourself, with each other and with nature.

Offline Portugal is a Community movement with a mission to take the power back to US.

We believe we can meet the ONLINE and the OFFLINE Worlds in a center point, with BALANCE, INTEGRATION and AWARENESS for Peace, Love and Human Connection.

This way we work towards the balance between our BODY & our MIND.

ONLINE OFFLINE EXPERIENCES, art, talks, workshops from Portugal….to the world.

We are a Movement of Awareness in which we gather Knowledge, Tools for Awareness and Experiences such as Surf, Yoga, Meditation, Music and various Artistic & Self-Development Workshops for you to experience the benefits of putting yourself into “pause” mode:

the essential stage for us TO SLOW down our mind .

We believe we can integrate the Online World, by giving it specific Time & Space within the Offline Experiences.

What is our story & MISSION

We launched Offline Portugal 5 years ago after quitting our corporate Jobs and lifestyle in London.

During this time we worked intensively in our first Project: The Offline House in Arrifana, Southwest beachside of Portugal, near Aljezur, where you could enjoy an amazing holiday whilst doing a DIGITAL DETOX.

We met more than 3000 people staying with us and we share not only a house but friends, moments of joy, dispair & laughter but most of all we share our time, Connecting together face-to-face, eye in the eye.

By Connecting with ourselves in the first place, with each Other and the Nature we are part of, The Offline House was much more than just leaving the phone at reception.

These days we live in, leaving our phones behind means leaving our comfort zone: We decide to temporary replace the digital contact with your friends/ Family, with your work & with your digital self to step into the zone of the PRESENT MOMENT.

We choose Mindfulness as a Lifestyle with the right BALANCE and INTEGRATION between the ONLINE and the OFFLINE worlds.

Why do we do this?

Because we believe if we get to know deeply each and one of us and transform our lives into a more mindful, loving and caring lifestyle the collective consciousness will rise and we can live in a much more sustainable and peaceful world.

We created Offline Portugal because we noticed the way we use our smartphone can interfere with our personal, social and professional relationships and how much impact a simple object can have in our lives. The challenge here is not the smartphone. It's the way we use it- like any other thing in our lives. Bringing awareness to the world is our collective goal. Using our electronic devices in a moderate way so they can't control your freedom is the challenge. We need to understand the power of Disconnectingon a much deeper level to Reconnect to what is really key in our lives.

Why do we do this

Why do we do this?
We created Offline Portugal because we noticed that how we use our smartphone can interfere with our personal, social and professional relationships and how much impact a simple object  can have in our lives by distracting us from the present moment and our priorities.
The challenge here is being against tecnology smartphone. It´s the way we use it- like any other thing in our lives. Bringing awareness to the world is our collective goal.
Using our electronic devices in a moderate way so that we are aware of our freedom. It´s Time to understand the power we all haveDisconnecting on a much deeper level to Reconnect to what is really key in our lives.
By Disconnecting we mean leaving away anything that disturbs your mind from living in the present moment of NOW and the smartphone these days plays a fundamental role on the distraction of the mind- Living in fear or worrying about the Future or in regrets or ability to let go of the Past.
We challenge you to switch off from your external world and get in touch with your internal world.

Meet our team

Barbara

Offline Portugal Founder – Architecht

…You can find me pretty much on any event we are offering here. I was born in Lisbon, studied Jazz piano and Architecture and after 6 years in London, some traveling and 11 years of a corporate job I had a call for my Mission with Offline Portugal.

By being born naturally as an Introvert and with Genetic tendency for Anxiety & Depression, those states of emotional imbalance aggravated tremendously since I started using Internet and Technology by the age of 15.

I started my Yoga & meditation practice in 2011 through mindfulness studies after a Mental & Physical Breakdown. After a few trips & Courses to India and specially after my Experiences with Vipassana Meditation, Reiki and furthermore into the studies of Sacred Geometry & Metaphysics, my Power NOW lies from sharing my Personal JOURNEY, through Art, Yoga, Music & Technology, with everyone that feels the call to understand themselves in the first place (Body, Mind & Heart) and Life in General!

My mission is to spread awareness of who you are, why you are here on Earth and how to quiet down the mind to listen to your Heart. You can see me on the mat, running around wifi (the dog!…), playing piano, doing Art, dancing like nobody is watching, surfing or simply having a cup of tea chatting about LIFE for hours!

I Founded In2infinity in 2016 when I left my life in the scientific world to start travelling.

Since then, I have been developing a series of workshops, courses and guidebooks that explore life through art, meditation, and creativity. You can find me leading the Sacred Geometry workshops in the Offline festival.

 I can’t thank you enough for the shift and life changing experience I’ve received.
Thank you for being there for me and creating healing space that made me feel I’m alive again. It was very difficult to leave your place for many reasons but most of all I felt like I’m finally at home with my family.

Emily, 35

I wanted to say THANK YOU so much to Bárbara, Christian, Evi, Fien, Ritinha for your kindness, warmth, delicious meals and for making the last week so magical. It was beautiful to share the week with you all, thank you for accepting me and for sharing your stories and wisdom.

quote

Sometimes it is too difficult to express gratitude.. I feel like my heart is so full – of the true connection- to the self, to my heart, to nature to all the beautiful souls I had a privilege to encounter. Immersed in wild nature, wrapped with the herbal scents I was so happy to inhale with each and every breath. Thank you Barbara for the most amazing yoga and meditation sessions ever- combined with the dazzling music experience.
