The World’s First ‘Brain Spa’… in Rural Portugal! 

The CO Project is a sustainable retreat for inspiring creatives and change makers United Nations Champion of the Earth  Dr. Leyla Acaroglu   has  launched the world’s first ‘brain spa’ in the rural village of Serra, Tomar in central Portugal. The  CO Project   ­ so named for its goal of inspiring Creative Optimism ­ was conceived as a unique  space for experiential regeneration of the body, the brain and the world around us. But what exactly does this mean? After finding herself completely drained as a result of her  hectic life’s work as a serial social entrepreneur, Leyla wanted to establish a retreat venue in  Portugal that supports personal and planetary well­being and promotes experiential learning, all  while building on new science around the evidenced health benefits of spending time in nature. The founder Leyla says, “Sustainability should be fun, cool and creative ­ we are trying to find  ways of solving complex problems, so we need spaces that help facilitate that. The CO Project  is a place for exploring how to make a positive impact on the world.” The beautiful CO Project campus sits on a 100­year­old farm, abandoned for over a decade and  now lovingly restored into what the founder calls a “living learning laboratory for exploring  contemporary sustainability and regenerating creative minds”. Surrounded by verdant hills of  olives and vineyards, the CO Project offers small scale organic farming combined with brian  activating workshops and hands­on learning experiences, offering visitors an opportunity to  explore natural systems, sustainable living practices, and creative experimentation into making  a positive imapc. Everything at CO is designed to ignite creative thinking and offer people from  every walk of life the opportunity to learn directly from nature. The CO Project runs single and multi­day   learning experiences     that offer foreigners and locals  alike a compelling immersion into rural regeneration and sustainable lifestyles, all with a  Portuguese flavor. Recent features in TAP Airlines’  UP Magazine   and  Taste of Portugal   have  highlighted their newly announced summer programs. In keeping with the CO Project’s social  enterprise model, the last Sunday of every month celebrates a donation­based Community  Open Day, which last year brought hundreds of people to visit this rural part of Portugal.
