My name is Esther and I was born in Catalunya (Spain). In the year 2012 following my intuition and my heart decided to go to live in Nicaragua. I took a suitcase and my three kids with me. Of the many things I studied throughout my life, I ended up working with the only one I hadn't anticipated. HEALTH.
The healing begins with oneself and then it is extended to other people. So I healed my soul and devoted myself to the sanation of the others across the Therapy Reorientadora of the Being, who includes skills as the Traditional medicine China, acupuncture, moxibustion, floral therapy, reiki, PNL between others.
Thanks to the assignment of land located in a rural area, the project to build the Kalasietas Healing Center through sustainable architecture was born. The house is made with blocks of adobe, has a dry toilet and a biofilter planter for the gray water. There is also an organic garden. In summary, I intend that this Center and the people who lives in its, be aware of the need to care for and respect the environment, save water and energy, be sustainable and be in contact with nature as a form of sanction and internal balance.
Due to the scarce economic resources that I have, it is essential to reduce costs. For this reason, a large part of the work is intended to be done with the participation of volunteers who want to collaborate and have an experience in a country like Nicaragua.
In these moments I live alone in the farm, because my children are out of the country. There is a lot of work to be done. Finish all the plastering of the walls of the house, (all that plaster is with mud) put doors, windows, finish the roof and build a ranch. Also clean the land, plant, make a small garden ... in short ... all ideas and contributions to improve the Healing Center are welcome.
If you want to come to Nicaragua, if you need a change in your life, if you want to discover the re orienting therapy of being while you support the project, the Kalastietas Healing Center invites you. You will have free accommodation in exchange for your help a few hours a day. You can stay as long as you want. I am a vegetarian and it is no problem for me to cook one more ration. If you want something else to eat that I do not have, that you will have to buy your. Just to say that at the moment everything is very provisional since the Center is not finished. Also say that I do not have a vehicle, but I do have bicycles that I put at your disposal. The bus stop is a 10 minute walk away. The center of the city 15 minutes by bus, and the beach 30 minutes by bus.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities. Volunteers can live in an undeveloped area in total contact with nature. They can also learn about Reorienting Therapy of Being, and traditional Chinese medicine. They can also practice their Spanish while helping me with my English which is not very good.
All volunteers are welcome, but people with knowledge of construction, carpentry, sustainable architecture and permaculture will be very useful at this time.
Also the people that like the bioconstruction, especially with mud because one of the longest works is that of plaster with mud of all the walls of the house. No experience is needed here, but good disposition and willingness to learn.

Bunk bed in shared dorm with shared bathroom.
I offer breakfast, and bed. The other meals are by yourself
If there is only one volunteer, he will have a private room with a bunk. but if there is more than one volunteer, they will have to share the room. The kitchen is shared.
the bathroom is temporary and is outside the house, in the courtyard.
On their days off, volunteers can visit the historic city of León, go to the beach to bathe and surf, or climb the Cerro Negro volcano. I will be happy to inform you and advise you of the possibilities of tourism in Nicaragua.
