    Description

    We are available to host from late June to mid September.

    We are Pablo, Judith and Diego our project participates in the conservation and diffusion of the indigenous cultures and their ancestral knowledge trough our association Amauta. Our goal is to be more sustainable and learn to live like the ancient cultures used to do it. As students from a shamanic tradition here we would like to share its use here, in the forest, where we can preserve this knowledge and its ways of co-exist sustainable respecting the environment.

    It is a conscious project that believes in permaculture, learning from traditional techniques, learning to live in harmony with the forest using what's necessary without harming the environment. Here we learn to connect with nature recovering its knowledge.

    For this couple of months we are gonna be away for work (Pablo and Judith) and Diego is gonna be in charge of the project. We are not gonna prepare retreats so we can focus on a few needs that we would love to do to make this a better place and preserve our project.

    Somos Pablo, Judith y Diego, participamos con nuestro proyecto en la preservación y difusión de las culturas indígenas y sus conocimientos ancestrales a través de nuestra asociación Amauta. Nuestro objetivo es ser cada vez más autosostenibles y aprender a vivir como lo hicieron antes de nosotros las culturas antiguas. Como estudiantes de una tradición chamánica , queremos compartir sus usos aquí, en el bosque, donde preservar estos conocimientos y sus formas de habitar y co-existir autosostenibles y respetuosas con el entorno.

    Es un proyecto consciente que apuesta por la permacultura, aprendiendo de las técnicas tradicionales, para vivir en armonía con el bosque utilizando lo que necesitamos sin dañarlo. Aquí aprendemos de la naturaleza conectándonos de nuevo con ella y recuperando su conocimiento.
