  • Description

    Description

    Ours is a project born with the desire to "awaken" the potential in all of us, accompanying through a holistic approach towards a new consciousness in this unique era of change. For that purpose we offer regularly retreats, workshops, conferences of all kind: yoga, meditation, bio-dance, ayurveda, etc

    The centre is mantained by a small group of volunteers. At the moment we have already 2 long-term volunteers but we welcome more people with specific skills.

    We have different projects in mind :
    - To build a big pond, a dry toilet and an outdoor kitchen for the tipi area and the future camping site.
    - To plant more fruit trees and vegetables.
    - Also we welcome people that knows how to promote efficiently this kind of centre outside canary islands.

    The project is placed in the east side of La Palma, near the capital and the airport. It's surrounded by mountains, forrest, and it has wonderful sea views but is over 400m2 so is not so close to the beach and can be a bit cold in winter compared to other parts of canary islands but if you like nature and a quiet life you will feel in a paradise.

    We work towards a sustainable environment and welcome people who knows about permaculture.

    See you soon!
