We are starting a meditation center in Algarve. Come and join the nature retreat!
The mornings start with meditation in the sunrise. Then we work for about 1 hour and enjoy a delicious breakfast. Then we work again until we eat lunch around 13:00. After some more work there is time to relax in our beautiful valley.
The project is run by me, Mikael a 39 years old Swedish man with a background in alternative media, and zen meditation. I also work with computers doing software development and graphics design. Today I am the only one living permanently on the land.
We are now opening for volunteers to come and do karma yoga, meditation, chi-gong and other interesting work together. I am mainly looking for people who are interested in meditation, energy work, permaculture and who want to contribute to the project. OBS! We only offer a place to stay in exchange for work. Training and food are offered on a donation basis.

We will have time to explore some parts of the training that includes: Meditation, chi gong, empathic communication, zen-coaching, organization skills, sustainability and permaculture design,
