We are a luxurious retreat center embedded in a pristine environment in the interior of Brazil. Our Sanctuary is a paradise, offering a literal trip to heaven.
Join us for healing journeys and discover new potentials for love and growth.
We offer both physical healing and deep therapy programs designed for the needs of each person. We have world famous Dr. Mark Sircus and his Innovative Medicine, which offers the best of alternative and complimentary medicine and his wife Luciana Valentim, both of who offer diverse therapies. We are interested in working with people who want to listen, be with Nature, retreat into themselves all with the goal of healing the stress and conflicts in their lives. Our exclusive center is non-commercial, private, giving our guests the ability to shape their own experience.
We offer therapy for both married and unmarried couples of all sexual orientations. Our basic aim is to teach couples to use their love and conflicts as engines of growth. We stress learning how to communicate and listen thus cultivating the willingness to look at one’s self through the eyes of the one you love the most. We teach couples to do couple therapy as a routine part of their relationship. Our unique approach includes sex therapy. Sex, as most people know, is one of the biggest prognostic tools in marriage.
We can hosts groups of approximately 20 to a maximum of 30 people. Large families, local embassy staffs from Brasilia, couples groups, events promoted by other group facilitators; and special situations where a primary person is accompanied by staffers can utilize our unique installation. Sanctuary gives all the chance to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in a highly secure location.

Sanctuary is a paradise hidden behind two rivers that surround us. Thus, we have three natural swimming pools close to the house. We have created an island of light and an oasis of love—a safe place to retreat to recover from stress and chronic diseases.
Sanctuary is an appropriate place to organize events or for group retreats. We are not a pousada so services need to be arranged for all visitors. Also rooms available for support staff.

Our Sanctuary is located in Moinho, a large and fertile valley between the foothills of the Serra Geral do Parana and the Sierra Fria. Has a core of simple and small houses surrounded by farms and ranches. It housed the first flour mill in Chapada dos Veadeiros.
We are 230 kilometers north of Brasilia, the federal capital of Brasil. There are no regular flights to the Chapada region. Flyers usually land in Brasilia (frequent flights from main airports in the USA, and from any other city in Brazil) then travel overland to Moinho.
There are buses departing from Brasília to Alto Paraíso, and we offer transfer in/out that can be arranged.
