  • Description

    Description

    This is an event/retreat center and co-living that strives to support the development of human potential. We explore this for example through dance, arts, meditation, being with nature, sharinges, doing workshops together.
    We aspire to integrate our learnings about ourselves into our daily lives. We value a communal living experience, sharing meals, conversations, art, knowledge, and life in a shared house/event space.

    Our space is used by groups and individuals for various retreats and events: ecstatic dance, somatic practices, Contact Improvisation, conteporary dance, dance jams, personal growth workshops, clowning and more...

    We are located in the valley of Natural Park of Arrábida, surrounded by hills in a beautiful landscape. The tranquillity and energy brings a sense of peace that allows rest and regeneration.

    The towns Palmela and Setúbal are nearby, and from Lisbon it is possible to get here in 45 min by public transportation.

    We are looking for support in renovating, repairing, improving and maintanance. Preparing the space for events is another important task for us and volunteers.
    We are looking for volunteers for a minimum period of 1 month unless there are special circumstances that were discussed beforehand.
    For 3 hours a day, 5 days a week we offer free accomodation. If you want to join the communal meals and use all the communal food, we ask 20€ per week.

    We aim to answer all the requests we are receiving. Although we understand how travelling can be unpredictable, we kindly ask youto write us only if you are truly interested and capable of coming.

    Our communal kitchen is vegan/vegetarian and mostly gluten-free. Our vegetables and fruits come mostly from a close by farm which grows organic.
    We are a drug-free zone.

    As a volunteer, you can use the dance studio whenever there is no event happening or core members are needing it. Forest and mountain walks can start right from the house. Stunning beaches are a 15min drive away. Rock climbing possibilities near by.

    ***Let´s connect so creation and growth can happen!***

    We are looking forward to welcoming you!
