    The place grows as a beacon of unity where humans, animals, and nature intertwine in a regenerative symphony. At its core lies and grows a vision to uplift individually and collectively, spanning not only the physical realm but also the mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of existence.

    While my partner and I are the steadfast heartbeats of this sanctuary, its soul is shaped by our extended family: core members who've become pillars and the vibrant volunteers who join our tapestry. Their diverse energies and insights enrich our journey daily.

    There is a dedication to conscious living, which strives for peace, love, unity, and regeneration. Our lively assembly of both domestic animals and the occasional visits of wildlife complement this ethos, illustrating the profound interdependence of all life.

    My pathway as a social entrepreneur has always championed value creation over mere profit. And here, in this space, we endeavor to embody that spirit. It's a place of mutual giving and growing, with the land and each other.

    For those seeking a haven this spring/summer, we extend a special invitation. If your heart yearns for a temporary home for a few months, a deeper connection with self, a community, and a shared purpose, we warmly welcome you. Journeying with us is a wholesome experience, filled with challenges and rewards in equal measure. Let's coalesce our energies and magnify the magic that beckons every being at the place to thrive.

    **Remembering that with great freedom comes great responsibility - the more we consciously take on the responsibility of harmonious care for our environment, the more freedom we are given to flow within the space. This enables more opportunities and deepening of the principles of CO-CREATION, CO-FACILITATION and CO-EXISTING. Founded upon principles of peace, love, unity, and respect!**

    It is located 4 Km away from a traditional Portuguese village called Pavia. The house in itself is magical and empowering in its essence, the land is beautiful and divine in its nature, the space is one that offers so much to the mind, body, and soul. There exist opportunities to relax, enjoy, connect with oneself or with other conscious beings, animals such as cats, horses and even to allow the music of nature to soothe you(of course this depends on your perspective, but I assume if you have made it this far reading you generally have an appreciation for some of the smaller things in life such as the singing of birds and the chirping of the natural nightlife, to enjoy a gorgeous view of a starlight sky and truly some tranquility that nature has to offer that things like the city cannot.

    About myself: I was born and raised on a horse farm in South Africa with a multiplicity of heritages running through my blood and ample diverse experiences. I am someone who is looking to integrate both the wildness of life with some of the luxuries and benefits of the modern-day age that we live in, in a manner that is conscious, expansive, respectful, and loving. My purpose is to create and co-create wherever I go, to learn and to teach, to inspire and to be inspired, to empower, and to allow myself to be humbled by the extensive diversity that exists around me. To develop energy exchanges that bring forth ''better'' into this world that can serve us as a collective.

    Other than all that, there are opportunities to co-create, laugh, learn, share, do things in nature, relax and even throw down our own little festivities as we truly enjoy a groovy dance and allow the vibrations of the powerful energies to vibrate through our beings. All that and so much more, the space is one to expand, give, receive, enjoy and be.

    Here at our beautiful haven, we cherish diversity and believe in the richness of learning from various cultures. We are sending out a warm invitation to BIPOC individuals to join our vibrant community. Your unique perspectives, experiences, and traditions are valuable and would greatly contribute to the tapestry of our collective experience. We offer a space of respect, understanding, and appreciation for all cultures. So whether you're from near or far, we warmly invite you to be part of our community, share your journey, and create beautiful memories together. Let's learn, grow and celebrate diversity together, adding more colors to the canvas of our co-created space

    Hier sind Haustiere in der Regel willkommen

    We have what one might call domesticated 2 dogs, 2 horses, 3 cats, 5 chickens and 1 bunny on the property. As long as your animals can accustom to the animals and systems that already exist on the property, we welcome them! P.S. The 1 dog Cacao (17kg) is working through some trauma with people and dogs and it takes a lot more time, effort, and patience to adjust. If you have a dog, especially if she is a female, be aware that fights can happen and it is important as the guardians of the dogs to be mindful of this and that responsibility is maintained to ensure everyones well well-being - please let us know as a special request if you have a dog
