This ONLINE COURSE is available as a self-paced individual journey, join anytime and do it on your own time. Includes pre-recorded videos, meditations in action and introspection exercises. Practice self-care as an art, with creativity. You are invited to listen to your body, mind, soul, and energy, to enable you to face the present and the future from a grounded, centered and self-compassioned space. The practices are gentle but powerful. Claudia uses self-massage, chi regeneration, mindfulness, inspired by Zen, Japanese healing arts and Nature.
With almost 2 decades of experience as a Shiatsu practicioner, the pandemic offered new ways to deepening practices of healing remotely. I have been offering DISTANT REIKI to clients in different parts of the world and I also volunteer to give distant Reiki to NHS staff working on the front line. I also do sound healing tuning (using tuning forks) which can also be done remotely. Please read the info and frequently asked questions, book a session or offer a Gift voucher to a friend in need. Treatments are holistic, helpful for mental health and physical issues - mind, body and soul.

Travelling like clouds - the art of being present, is a self-published book that I wrote through my journey (2016-20), available as an e-book, PDF and as a real book! This book of 270 pages, also includes some of my soul journey photographs; it follows the inner journeys of the soul and my worldly nomad travels. Along the journey I also made a film called The soul journey. In the book I explore themes such as uncertainty, loss, simplicity, living in wilderness, healing, energy, and trauma.

"All members of the land community are equal" - In this page I share a little about my connection with the Land, as an Earth protector, a spiritual ecologist and a permaculture gardener. In my wanders I listen to the land and all its beings, trees, animals, flowers, and rocks, and was recently inspired and held in a Wild Mind intensive by Animas Valley Institute. See photos of my gardens, Nature meditations, wild wanders, and rituals of connection. A journey from guerrilla gardening to permaculture and Deep ecology, exploring being intimate with all things.
I started making films professionaly in 1995. Having worked in the film industry in Portugal, I always liked to defy norms and genres, mixing fiction and documentary, actors and real people. I made several films, including two awarded feature films. Since 2004 I self-produce all my films independently, working in a small scale, in holistic ways, without a crew. My recent films are crafted, experimental, often using images and sounds as meditation, a way to explore the depths of life and as healing art. I also use video for social change and activism, namely in environmental and housing issues.
