The project is located on a natural and indigenous national park, and is full of beautifull places, such as caves, waterfalls, and amazing view points. The mountain is called "Quinini" which in indigenous language means "moon goddes". Is considered a femenine energetic portal activated and ready to charge and heal all visitors, it was a hospital for ancient cultures, the place where woman came to give birth, a place for ceremonies and even a cemetery.
The indigenous that inhabited this mountain where also dedicated to arts and they left many drawings on rocks of more than 3000 years, that you can find in certain places of the mountain, including the land where the project is located.
The Quinini mountain is a national park, some places of it, located outside of the farm of this project are of high arqueological importance and the entrance have a cost of approximately 3 dollars.
We are in contact with the local shamans and sacred plant medicine ceremonies. This is part of our healing process and awakening journey of the planet. The increasing of the vibration rate of the planet.
We are just starting, so there are many things to do.
The vision for the place was obtained on deep states of meditation and is an enlightened community living in harmony, planting most of its own organic and clean food, and constructing a paradise of beauty and abundance. The vision for a new humanity rising in ecovillages like this is also based on developing practices that rise the physical and mental capacities of the human being such as circus, yoga, meditation and arts.
We, the creators of this project are very interested on indigeous wisdom, and healing alternative therapies, our vision is a place where people can connect, enjoy, learn, and feel the amazing and healig energy of this sacred mountain.
The project on the land is a healing place, with permaculture, bioconstruction, arts, music, and worldwide healing and meditating practices. More than physical, material, third dimension transformations we priorize on searching first inner transformations... we believe on the rebirthing of a planet full of love, peace, sustainable innovation, and joy.
If someone, after visiting this place, feels a little more connected with itself, a little more trustfull of its self-love and power, then the experience was succesfull.
There is 2 types of volunteer positions. One space for a long term volunteer or a couple that have some managing tasks, work 5 hours a day and doesn't need to contribute with money for the food. This volunteer can stay in bed.
The second type of volunteer which minimum stay is one week, function with 3 hours of work in the morning, we currently do not receive any income from the farm so we ask volunteers to cover some of the cost of buying and transporting food which is 20000 COP (approx $€£5) per day per person so that we can offer opportunities to volunteers. This covers all three meals a day. When a volunteer is coming we buy the groceries for him for one week so please pay in advance for one week that is the minimum stay.
If you prefer to bring your own food and cook separately you are free to do so, just remember that the project is located on a mountain far away (3 hours walk) from groceries markets.
As a visitor of the project you can be hosted by any of its members, including a long term volunteer. On very rarely situations the project can be almost empty and also we can accept volunteers that want to be on the mountain by themselves doing meditation retreats, fasting or just healing, in any case there is somebody passing through the project every day to be attentive to the volunteers and the needs of the land.

The Quinini mountain, is a sacred place, not only for the indigenous people that lived on the area. Is full of indigeouns arts and remains, principally on rocks and caves. As this is a natural and indigenous reservation, there are trails that provide beautiful landscappes of the Magdalena valley, and caves with indigenous paintings from 3000 years ago. Also there are some nice waterfalls close to the project.
Some workshops and classes such as yoga, tai chi, indigenous handcraft and meditation practices may have additional cost.

Warum lässt workaway.info Einträge von Gastgebern zu, die einen finanziellen Beitrag verlangen?
In Entwicklungsländern (wo die meisten Gastgeber gemeinnützige Arbeit oder Gemeinschaftsentwicklungsarbeit anbieten) verlangen einige unser Gastgeber einen kleinen Beitrag, um die Gastfamilie oder NGO zu unterstützen (meist handelt es sich um weniger als 5 USD pro Tag). Workaway lässt diese Art von Einträgen dann zu, wenn die Spende direkt an die Familie oder die NGO geht und nur dazu dient, die Kosten des Aufenthalts des Volunteers abzudecken. (Dies wird im Eintrag des Gastgebers deutlich angegeben).
Wir lassen keinerlei Inserate von Agenturen, „Vermittlern“ oder Projekten zu, bei denen wir das Gefühl haben, dass sie Profit aus dem Aufenthalt von Volunteeren schlagen wollen.
Dies sind zusätzliche optionale Bewertungen, wenn Mitglieder Feedback hinterlassen. Es wird die im Schnitt hinterlassene Bewertung für jede Option angezeigt.
