Carnival Festival
with satyaprem

  From February 2nd to 13th  

  Sítio Leela  

The only way out is inside.



February 2nd to 6th

Based on the Japanese Rinzai Zen School and the self-inquiry work of Ramana Maharshi, this work, developed by Charles Berner, was refined by Osho and has been coordinated by Satyaprem since 1987, taking place over the last 22 consecutive years with exclusivity at the Carnival Festival.


An intensive process that invokes the realization of who you are beyond the body, beyond the mind. A direct and non-transferable experience. A leap into the unknown.


Participation in this first part of the festival must be total. To participate in Satori, it is not possible to arrive after the start date. You must be prepared to remain immersed during these days, far from routine and external calls. The program involves active meditations, an exclusive diet and self-inquiry exercises, under a silent, monastic structure that supports the investigation of the koan "Who am I?". 

Start: February 2

It is not possible to arrive after this day to participate in SATORI. Check-in between 10am and 7pm.

There will be a van leaving Salgado Filho airport (POA), in Porto Alegre, at 3pm, on February 2nd,

on the way to Sítio Leela.

End date: February 6th

There will be a last group meeting at 6pm that day.

We recommend that you remain on site until  tonight or, at least, until breakfast the next day. As it is an intense process, this break before traveling is welcome.

If you are interested in using the transport van collective, it is necessary to request your reservation with the event production team.  The cost of transportation is approximately R$60 and must be paid at the time of travel.

But it is also possible to schedule the trip with one of the  drivers we reccomend.

It is important to know that the distance between Sítio Leela and Porto Alegre airport is approximately 100 km.

We suggest reserving at least 1:30h for the journey.

Âncora Satori


February 6th to 13th

Satsang means “encounter with the truth”. In the words of master Osho, satsang means narrow proximity to the truth; it means close to the truth, close to a Master who has become one with the truth – simply being close to him, open, receptive.

Since 2000, Satyaprem has held satsangs in retreats at Sítio Leela, some cities in Brazil, Latin America, the United States and Europe.


In this retreat module, it is possible to participate fully or on a daily basis. And, if you need it, we have Wi-Fi internet access.

Born in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, in the early 80s, he had his first contact with the enlightened master Osho,  from whom he received the name Satyaprem, which means "Love for the Truth". He studied Journalism, dedicated himself to Photography, Painting and Poetry; publishing his first book in 1983 – "PA" – in Rio de Janeiro.


For approximately twenty years, he focused on working with Therapy and Meditation, working in Brazil, Europe and India as part of the Multiversity team of therapists, from Osho Commune International. Among the therapies, he specialized in Primal Therapy, Family Constellation, Tantra and Kinesiology. His work with meditation was based on Satori, Awareness Intensive, an intensive process of self-inquiry based on the structure of the Japanese Rinzai Zen Schools and perfected by Osho with his meditations.


In 2000, the "end of the search" was revealed to him and, since then, he has called on people to awaken to their original nature, sharing the "Encounter with the Truth" (satsang) through lectures and retreats, in addition to books that contain excerpts from these meetings.


For 22 consecutive years, Satyaprem has held the Carnival Festival at Sítio Leela, in addition to other retreats throughout the year – both at Sítio Leela and in some cities in Brazil, Europe and the USA.
