During ‘Lockdowns’, she took this as an opportunity to develop and refine all her previous practice, study and teaching. Filomena took The Vishoka Meditation Master Course in 2020. Then, followed this up with The Vishoka Meditation Teachers Training Course which she successfully completed in August 2021 becoming amongst the 1st Group of Certified Vishoka Meditation Teachers- Globally! 
 
‘’Vishoka Meditation is grounded in the direct experience of the Himalayan Tradition, including Buddha and Patanjali and embodies yoga’s essential wisdom on the path of meditation…It is not just a technique, but rather a complete system to reclaim our inner radiance and train our mind to remain clear, focused, firm, productive, and joyful in all circumstances and situations in life’’- Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD- Spiritual Head of The Himalayan Institute. 
Filomena is now happy to share this pure and simple method that she says ‘’allows us to embrace our intrinsic source of vitality, joy, love and equanimity. Life becomes purposeful, fulfilling, and complete’’. 
 
In her ‘down time’, she is project managing the renovation of a granite barn in the mountains of Northern Portugal.
