We are a family (Emilio, Catia and the baby Maitri, our 2 dogs: Loba and Prasad, our 2 cats: Ananda & Agni and 5 chickens) trying to create a mindful practice center. The center word it's very tricky, so we mean with that a school of life where we try to bring meditation and simple living together. We want to live in a simple way, projecting and working for sustainable living. The project was for starting last year but with the arrival of Maitri, our 3month old baby, we choose to give time to enjoy pregnancy and Maitri firsts months, and now we are ready to go ahead with this dream.
We also asked SORRY to be this last month very disconnected to the computer and have missed answering to people were kind to come and help.
Now we are ready to return to the daily tasks and we need lots of help to take this project ahead.
For us, the interconnection body, mind and mother-earth is very important. Bringing the awareness through meditation, Yoga, eastern healing arts, healthy organic food, natural diet and working the land.
We are located in a beautiful area in between cork trees land and pine trees forest in the south of Andalusia - nearest village Arcos de la Frontera and surrounded by the national park of Grazalema.
Emilio is a lover of nature, Buddhism, and music. His favorite hobbies are climbing and playing music. He is also an amazing veggie chef. A few years ago started his interest in ecological farming and permaculture, he tries to bring his knowledge to the project but is happy to learn more and more.
Catia is a therapist of eastern healing arts and troughs her path she started the inner-investigation and the realization of a simple living life connected with herself, earth and all beings. She loves animals and plants. Does experiments with medicinal plants and try to create her own remedies and cosmetic. Yoga, body energetic work and climbing are her passions.

At the moment the priority is receiving helpers that are comfortable to build (carpenter skills), we need to do compost toilet and a pound... and people who are used to working in a veggie garden with the principle of respecting the nature...
We really need hands to help with the normal daily tasks here at the mindful farm. As daily tasks, we ask for watering, wedding, and harvesting the veggie garden; maintenance of the house and caravan; feeding the animals, collecting compost, etc.
