At Eden, a retreat centre in the heart of Brazil

Welcome to Eden Sanctuary

Where nature meets deep spiritual reflection

Eden Sanctuary is nestled in the Chapada Diamantina National Park, a mountainous region located in the state of Bahia. Eden’s story began with Paul Mallon, an Englishman who arrived in Brazil 14 years ago and, mesmerised by its charm, never left. His transformative journey, sparked by profound encounters with cacao and Ayahuasca, led him to organize retreats that offered a safe environment for individuals seeking personal growth. 12 years ago, Paul invited his friend Henry Dummett to one of the ceremonies, and Henry immediately felt an emotional bond with the landscape. When Paul was offered the opportunity to buy some land in Vale do Capão, he joined forces with Henry, and together, they created Eden Sanctuary.

Eden was built with your wellbeing in mind. Your rest, healing, and inner peace are the core of our story.
