I have the vision of sharing this calm and inspiring spot as a place to rest, dream, awaken; develop arts and music, practice your holistic healing. The landscape is almost an oasis, due to the surrounding geographic features and its proximity to Lima. The property is pinned on farmland, easily accessible from Lima on car, bus, taxi and, or a combination of them and walking. The area offers a range of possibilities to explore.
I just took over the property and need enthusiastic hands to help me condition the house, the organic garden, a set of cabins, the home.
The property is on 1ha (10000m2) land. The house and garden is contained within a tall fence on about half of the land, with 3 bedrooms and a sunken living room.
I consider myself pretty mellow, respectful and discreet. I have to be as well versatile, creative and pragmatic. I enjoy sharing quality time and meaningful conversations, hearty meals, witty humour, and laughters. I celebrate diversity, variety and change.
I have lived until now developing many of my interests and gradually discovering the spiritual undercurrent that carries me along.
My last career integrates my interests and values: Global Resource Systems for Food and Resource Economics under sustainable eco-economics.
I try to eat light, healthy foods as much as possible, with an aim on vegetarianism. Together with this, I consider important to maintain a clean and tidy home, free of drugs and alcohol.
I will enjoy helping you improve your Spanish while discussing Peruvian culture and geography, together with typical food preparations and giving you pointers in domestic travel and safety. Of course, I will celebrate learning just as much from you.
I would love to hear about your travel parties and discuss how we may be able to accommodate you all.
I invite you to drop-by to meet what I and the communities and spaces around me have to offer.

Volunteering tasks are goal specific. At this point there is mainly painting, renovation and farming to do. Tasks like cooking and housekeeping are community oriented, hence don't necessarily count towards the hours expected. Let´s all work keeping our corner of the house and personal belongings clean, vented and tidy, as well as the shared areas of the house.
Community outreach may extend to support the elementary school next door to us, and the andean communities next to the geothermals of Collpa.

Real beds with single and double size quality mattresses. I have one room available to accomodate 1, 2, 3 people max. depending on the group. Shared bathroom, and shower. Full kitchen. Laundry sink. Water from a well. Quality movie times. A few books. Yoga pads.
The house is in the Chancay River estuary, walking distance from an abandoned 1900's boutique hotel that has a small lagoon with medicinal tepid spring waters.
The house is also next to a very small village centre that hosts a small church, a small elementary school and another 2-3 houses. I hardly see or hear any activity, though I know it is may be interested in receiving community volunteering help - if interested.
We have access to other natural, cultural, functional places. The rural towns of Chancay and Huaral are less than 30 minutes away by car. Each offers convenient facilities including one pretty friendly, public sauna. We also have beaches (caves) and a Krishna temple 15 minutes away. We have hot springs and old ruins like Caral (2-3 hours away), and easy to access bus transportation companies to Huaraz and, or heading to your next travel destination.
I have a couple bicycles for touring dirt roads along the farms and fruit and vegetable stands. Our neighbours have a few cows milked manually, daily, so if you like pure, fresh, natural milk - you got it!
Please drop me a line if you have any questions. Thank you
