Message to all our guests and followers.

Nature changes all the time, and so do I. And so do you.
Each one of you reading this.

Whenever I come to a point of my life where I significantly upgrade into a better version of myself or closer to my true nature, a period of big transformation takes place. Then, just like nature itself, my external world also changes: houses, landscapes, countries, friends, partners, careers, and business.

Offline Portugal is also changing. Transforming, growing and getting closer to its mission in a more effective way. For 3 years myself and Rita worked intensively on our first Project: the Offline House here in Arrifana. We met more than 3000 people who stayed with us, and we shared not only a house but also friendship, laughter, moments of joy and despair. Most of all we shared our time, by disconnecting from our devices and re-connecting with what is most important in life: Connecting with each other, with the nature around us and with OURSELVES.

Being “Offline” is not just about leaving your phone at the reception of a guesthouse. The days we live in, leaving your phone behind means leaving your comfort zone. You stop being in permanent contact with your Friends and Family, with your work and with your digital self, and you step into the zone of presence. Then it is just you, without any room to pick up your phone when you are feeling alone. We live in the present moment – with its highs and also its lower moments. There’s no light without the dark.

When was the last time you spent a week without your phone? How does it feel? Freedom is our ultimate mission. Everyone wants Love… but what is Love if you can’t be free?

Wait, I know what you are going to ask: What does my phone have to do with my freedom?

We are not blaming smartphones for our lack of freedom. The same way we can’t blame someone who caused us a heartbreak for our sadness or loneliness. We are the ones responsible for our own actions and decisions in life. Most of the time, our freedom is taken away because we allow it to happen.

We allow everyone to be able to reach us anytime, anywhere. We allow our passwords to be given to our partners, we allow ourselves to always keep our phone with us so we don’t get lost on the road. WHY? Because today that’s what our minds are wired for.
Let’s stop blaming “the system” or Trump or technology – and take some responsibility in our life. Let’s change the wires in our heads and step into a new way of thinking and living, leaving the automatic-pilot behind.

A smartphone is a great tool, and the Internet did have the intent to share information that was previously not accessible.
But, just like with anything in nature and in our world, there is a dark side to it.

Now we want to grow and expand, sharing the Offline revolution with as many people as we can in a more effective way.

We are excited to share that in 2019 we will have bespoke, deeper Offline Holiday experiences in a location more off-the-grid, a bigger and more trained team, more accessible information on a regular basis, and a network of partners who want to spread our mission – from Aljezur to Lisbon and why not around the World. All this new information is now available on our updated website.

I truly wish is that you – the person reading this post behind a screen – can resonate with these words and want to take part in this movement. By empowering yourself and getting out there with a new vision, your own true power and the determination to make your dreams come true.

See you soon !
Love and Blessings,
Bárbara
Offline Founder & Spiritual Teacher
