He is the founder and lives at Awakeland Portugal.

Ashik loves to learn and to teach, and above all to experience. He leads Tantra trainings and seminars around the world. He believes that the great shift is to stop trying to change and accept what is, in sync with Mother Earth and Heart acceptance. 

Ashik’s joy is expressed through gratitude and celebration of life.

IURI

Though he has studied history, he is really more of an autodidact by choice, preferring the philosophy of life to be his guide. He arrived at Awakeland in Spring of 2014 by chance, and he is very happy that his path led him here.

 

A big love for the land guided him since his arrival. For many years this land had been mistreated but he is proud to be part of the process that is reversing this and creating a utopia of abundance.

 

His dream of seeing a forest emerge is becoming a reality. He likes to see the world as a place of abundance for everyone. In particular he believes strongly that individual existence and the collective offer infinite opportunities of improvement, self- realization and growth.

SHAMBO

The guardian of the guardian, Shambo turned up in October 2017 to assist the Awakelanders to care for the land and it's people. He has been a steady, strong space holder, protecting the sphere of joy and unity by sharing love to all who come to Awakeland.

DELIA LAKSHMI

For most of her life, Delia has been exploring the planet and her own inner space, delving into all types of healing modalities including yoga, meditation, Ayurveda and Tantra to name a few. Since her first visit to Portugal many years ago, she has had a strong urge to return and discover not only what this magical land has to offer,  but also what she can offer it. 

 

Now finding herself at Awakeland, she’s able to share the gift of yoga, generate abundance, and plan events that will benefit the community at large, as well as receive the many healing and transformational gifts that this part of the earth has to offer.

SOFIA 

Sofia has graduated in Tourism Management with the vision of combining both "outer" and "inner" travels. Travelling and being in contact with different people and cultures is a great way to expand our horizons but it is even more powerful when we combine it with an inner journey of self-discovery for "the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes". 

For the past 5 years she has worked as a tour guide, while at the same time, having explored and studied different modalities like Herbalism and Flower Essences, Crystal Therapy and Humanistic and Transpersonal Astrology. 

Now she's in charge of welcoming the guests and making sure they have everything they need during their stay as well as attracting new guests.
