Preface to the 2017 Casa Guide Edition

The intention of this guide is to simplify and clarify all the many rules and procedures in place at the Casa de Dom Inacio. Most of these rules have been handed down from the entities over years of work. Over time there have been many changes to existing rules and we expect that there will be many more in the future.

We are grateful to those of you who contributed your comments, insights and time to this second edition. Thank you for helping make this guide clearer and more useable.


Whether you are here seeking physical healing, asking for help in your life or following your spiritual development the Casa Guide book is intended to help you get the most out of your time at the Casa de Dom Inacio and hopefully make your visit enjoyable as well as fruitful. The rules and guidelines here described are defined by the Entities of the Casa. From time to time these rules are changed and we will make every effort to update this information in new editions. When you arrive in Abadiania it is always a good idea to go to the Tuesday evening introductory talk at the Casa. Even if you are an old timer, this is the perfect place to get acquainted with the latest changes in protocol or procedures. In general terms, the way to get the best out of your journey to the Casa de Dom Inacio is to cultivate a space of inward focus and prayer. Be respectful of others and be ready to surrender to the work that is yours to do.
