We are a group of people that personally decided to experiment an alternative way of living , based on love, sharing and service, the best way to described is a Upgrowing Family with similar interest , of course keeping our own identity always in benefit of the Comunity,, thats the real meaning of this beautiful Word, that of course is not that easy to live it day by day.
Thats the main reason why we créate this space, to make posible for everyone to learn a more healthy and harmonius way of living.
For us is very important that all the participants are very very interested in a spiritual path, we can call it in many ways, yoga, meditation, music, dance, arts, etc, but with a really inner compromise of being better every day and with the intention of opening the heart and to share with other people,
The Exchange we offered is not just work for food and room, we are looking for something much more deeper than that, we are trying to expand this family , in this way wherever w ego we can feel at home.
So if you are interested about it, this is your place.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Now talking a little bit more about technical details and the work that is necessary , specially is to be open, and ready to do the different Jobs needed in the community, there are some that are everyday the same and others that according to the needs of the place and the community they change, not just in the community but in the village we live.
This part is very important for us, because another of the main reasons we decided to créate this Project in this área is because of the increasing need of local people in many aspects, from childs they dont have the money to go to schools, a lot of alcoholism and addictions, many paralitic and minusvalid people, problems about water supply, garbage separation and consciousness, very low understanding about healthy and conscious food,, so we are doing our best to served the community where we live.
And as well our community that needs from the basic things like help around the community, doing permaculture, organic construction, setting up for different events.
The idea of our Project is that everyone participates in all the activities and Works, thats why its not necessary any previous knowledge of any of the Jobs we need to do.
Why we do this, because we believe that everyone has the potential to be a leader, if not we do the same like in Society where some are the directors and become rich an the workers just receive some small piece of the cake.
In here as comunity all we are exactly the same, there is no any boss just guidence for the people when they come, after some days we become family and work together inside and outside.
First than anything ourselves, our time, our heart and in exchange of 5 hours of work per day what we offer is Room, One full menú of the vegetarian restaurant ( eat as much as you can )
We have 2 main option:
1.- living in the Community : here is compulsory to meditate daily from 6 to 7 a.m and also to be ready to participate in the daily yoga classes at least a couple of days per week, and the 5 hours work for community and to be ready and have the desire to share at least some time with the integrants of the community, sharing some cup of tea, eating together, our idea is that people get a real taste of the Mexican culture and international as well
and of course you are invited to participate in the daily program of meditation and Yoga and many other activities we do, like Temazcales, massage, reiki, circus, dancing therapies, codependency groups, etc , etc. This are including in the exchange
2.- living in Casa : here you dont need to meditate, and just we ask once in a while to practice a Little bit of yoga, the classes will be offered by a conscious Donation to you
All the other therapys will be by donation as well.
So this experience is looking forward not just to do a physical work but very needed an inner aswell.
Some of the conditions for living in both places are that no MEat, Alcohol, cigarettes or any kind of drug is aloud and also we aks for Peacefull people because we care a lot about the enviroment we live.
Outside of our place if someone wants toe at meat or drink some alcohol is aloud, but we ask to be modarated because we are a model of how to live in a Little bit more healthy way, so we need your help aswell.
For now just wanted to thanks for your time and interest in this Exchange mainly of ourselves and love, wishing to receive some news about you shortly.
